Happy Thursday, Y’all! Can you believe it’s already August? The past few months have flown on by, and the excitement of summer is already getting replaced with all kinds of back-to-school time chatter. I’ve even recently seen some local stores stocking up their shelves with Halloween galore before we’ve even made it to September! It all feels a bit too soon. I think we are often so quick to look ahead at the next season or the next chapter, but the truth is, summer isn’t over yet. I’m personally taking the time to hit pause, revel in this current space and enjoy the last full month of summer. If we've learned anything from this past year, it's that we should cherish the beauty of the now!
So what’s on your end-of-summer bucket list? For me, August is one of my favorite months for enjoying a relaxing staycation! It’s perfectly ideal for when you’ve already taken your big summer vacation but are still itching for another nice getaway. And luckily, we Austinites are fortunate to live in an area with incredible getaway spots in and around our beloved city. So if you’re ready to leave the house for a day or two for some vacation-like serenity nearby, then check out my list of top local staycation hotels and resorts below!
And in the spirit of being in the now, if you or someone you know have been wanting to dive into Austin’s real estate market, then there’s no time like the present. It’s still a strong seller’s market, and great opportunities to find and buy your ideal home in the area are still within reach (and much less stress-inducing than before). Plus, with our unique programs like Compass Coming Soon, my team and I have exclusive access to an extensive database of listings that haven’t even hit the market yet! We can also get you started with a personalized and consistently updated home collection to make your home search fun and easier than ever. So if you are ready to learn more and get started, you know I’m always here!
