Property Appraisals going up again???

I read this article in the statesman about property appraisals going up this year… I think with the recent mortgage crisis that started late last year, the values would be going down, but I guess not.

Amazing Deck Builder in Austin

When we first moved into our house in Steiner Ranch, we had a great backyard and the thing that would complete it was a nice deck attached to our semi-covered patio. I went on craigslist and found some deck builders and got some quotes. After searching and searching for the right price and design, I found Mike Forbes of Austin Dream Decks. He did a great job. It was a one man crew and he spent a lot of time and care to make sure everything was [...]
