    This property is a unique opportunity and has already generated a volume of serious interest.
To help ensure fairness, received offers are being placed in sealed envelopes. Offers will be presented after July 9, 2003.

    If listing agent writes an offer, in fairness to all parties, no special commission arrangements will be made. Existence of offer(s) will be kept confidential, therefore, there is no need to wait until the last minute to submit an offer.

    When evaluating offers, priority will be placed on speed of sale, likelihood of closing, and best price, not necessarily in that order.  Buyer is urged to make best offer, secure proof of insurance if it is necessary for loan, and to document financial strength and ability to close with no roadblocks.  Buyer must arrange for own survey.

    Please bookmark this website, as it will be my primary method of communicating changes to you.  I may have trouble returning phone calls in a timely manner.  I'll update this site when there are new developments:


    June 30: I don't yet have key; property must be shown when I make appointment with tenant, whom I'm trying to contact.  I'll post any change in showing arrangements.

    If somewhere there was an existing survey, it is unavailable now. Buyer must arrange for own survey.

    July 2: Property now on lockbox, showing arrangements are business hours only, call first and go.  Lockbox is located on storage room door under carport.  MLS has been down; when it is back up I'll enter the tenant's phone number.  Until then, please call me if you are an agent needing to show.

    Current rent is $800/mo., month-to-month.

    Added two images of creek view and cliff.

    July 3: Added images of tax plat showing lot lines.  Per Travis Central Appraisal District, lot is 73 x 83 average, small dimension is frontage.  I don't know whether the unplatted areas are greenbelt; that is for the buyer to determine.

    July 9: Uploaded updated Sellers disclosure with the added text "settling to some extent."

    Title company provided copy of 1955 deed.  Seller inherited the property from that owner about 1985.

    July 10: Multiple offers have been received and are to be presented to Seller at 11:00 today.  There is no deadline for offer submission.

    July 10: Property is under contract.  Seller reviewed twenty offers on this property and 4309 Avenue F.  Selling agents of all offers in the running have been contacted regarding backup offers.
