Under Contract in Horseshoe Bay Texas on Lake LBJ

Posted by on 10-10-18 in Horseshoe Bay, Horseshoe Bay Real Estate, Lake LBJ Real Estate | Comments Off on Under Contract in Horseshoe Bay Texas on Lake LBJ

The Carvajal Group is pleased to announce our must recent success story in Horseshoe Bay.  We aggressively priced 213 Bay Point in Horseshoe Bay at $2,000,000 and received multiple offers on this Horseshoe Bay estate.  The property is under contract for over asking price and we believe this is a win-win for both the buyer and seller.

When selling a home on Lake LBJ, effectively pricing a home is extremely critical.  We believe that a aggressive price tag will always generate the most interest and typical lead to a quick sale.  Some sellers don’t like the word “quick” because they feel that they are leaving money on the table but in our experience the properties that sell the fastest are the ones in which the seller has the most leverage.

If you have every considered selling Lake LBJ real estate, specifically a property in Horseshoe Bay, contact me today at (512) 786-1515 and allow us the opportunity to show you why we are the best for the job.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Water Passing Through Lake LBJ

Posted by on 10-10-18 in Helpful Topics, Lake LBJ Real Estate, LCRA | Comments Off on Water Passing Through Lake LBJ

Overnight we experienced some higher than normal water passing through parts of Lake LBJ as big rains in the Texas Hill Country caused some flooding upstream.  The good news is that the Highland Lakes System worked as designed and the LCRA was able to control the amount of water passing through Lake LBJ to prevent any catastrophic damage.  This morning the lake is down almost two feet and there is a high amount of flow with lots of debris floating in the water.  The water is brown but the skies are blue and while its not safe to swim or utilize the lake right now it will be back to normal in a few days.

In times of flooding it is important to remain alert as conditions can change quickly and become very dangerous in a matter of seconds.  Thankfully all is well at Lake LBJ!  If you or someone you know is interested in purchasing Lake LBJ Real Estate contact us today and allow is the opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise with you!

October is a GREAT month to BUY on LBJ

Posted by on 10-10-18 in Lake LBJ Real Estate, Market Update | Comments Off on October is a GREAT month to BUY on LBJ

BOOO! October is here and in my opinion this is a great time to scoop up a property on Lake LBJ and here is why:

  1. The summer season is winding down and buyer motivation and showings slow
  2. Sellers tend to get anxious as they feel they missed the prime selling months
  3. The seasonal weather forces some buyers to postpone schedule trips to the lake so their is less competition for available listings
  4. Many sellers list their homes right after the summer so there is some good stuff to choose from

If you are in the market for a property on Lake LBJ Id love to talk to you more about available opportunities and properties.  I live on Lake LBJ full time and exclusively sell waterfront homes here.  I bird dog deals for my clients and find them the best deals available often times presenting properties that are not available to the open market.  I would love the opportunity to earn your business so please give me a call today!

Great Brokers Do More Than Sell

Posted by on 6-06-18 in Blue Lake Real Estate, Horseshoe Bay Real Estate, Lake LBJ Real Estate, LCRA, LCRA septic inspection | Comments Off on Great Brokers Do More Than Sell

Great brokers do more than just sell real estate.  We solve problems, and often times in a moments notice in order to get deals to the finish line.  I was recently hired to a sell a property in Horseshoe Bay and two days before closing we found out that the driveway was poured over the septic drain lines and that LCRA would not approve the septic system without modification. With anxious buyers and sellers ready to close we had to act quickly in order to get this process expedited.

In less than two weeks time I was able to have the system designed, obtain a permit from LCRA and add approx 45 feet of drain line to the system.  We also had to cover the holes created by the work and get the yard landscaped for the new buyers.  For most agents this would be a very difficult task and for me it was not easy, but doable.  Due to my experience serving the Lake LBJ area I was able to tap into my connections and move my client’s needs to the front of the line.  The septic system was completed, approved and today the sod will be laid to finalize the project for closing.

When you are buying or selling Lake LBJ real estate there are many unknowns and challenges that may come up throughout the process.  Its critical that you work with a Broker that is not just good at selling but also at solving problems and getting things done.  Getting to the closing table is what matters.

Before you buy or sell Lake LBJ real estate I strongly encourage you to give me a call and learn more about what all I do for my clients.  This may good and well be the biggest investment you make in your lifetime and its only prudent to hire the best!  Contact me today at (512) 786-1515 to learn more about my passion for selling real estate on Lake LBJ.
