Life in a boomtown has its perks. Growth brings opportunity.
We’re seeing that more than ever when it comes to housing. The Austin Board of Realtors released its latest housing numbers, and they show the median home price is now $320,000 – a 73% increase in the last 10 years.

We decided to look at the fastest growing ZIP codes in the area, and what we found is that families are increasingly choosing to live outside the Austin city limits.

“The hottest two areas right now are Cedar Park and Leander. The northwest sector of Austin,” said Susan Horton, a longtime Austin Realtor.

Having available cash on hand is crucial for businesses of all sizes, and a business line of credit is often a great way to get that cash. A credit line can help when you have unexpected cash flow gaps or when you want to take advantage of opportunities that arise.

State Lawmakers To Increase School Funding And Lower Property Taxes

2019-06-28T14:39:14-05:00

The 86th Texas Legislature convened and concluded with shared priorities including public school funding and property tax reform.

Here’s a little breakdown of the two big bills:

Senate Bill 2 – Property Taxes
The Governor signed Senate Bill 2 (by Sen. Bettencourt – Houston) on June 12. The new law lowers the current 8 percent revenue cap to 3.5 percent, triggering an automatic election if the tax rate is exceeded. Taxing units would not be required to hold an election if they are going beyond the 3.5 percent cap in response to a natural disaster. The new law also prohibits taxing entities from adopting a future budget or taking any action that decreases the compensation of first responders. The […]

2019-06-13T13:01:54-05:00

Article by Bankrate

The number of women-owned businesses in the United States has seen huge growth. In fact, women are opening an average of 849 new businesses per day.

Women-owned businesses increased a dramatic 31 times over the past 46 years, according to the 2018 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report commissioned by American Express.  Between 1972 and 2018, they’ve risen from 402,000 (4.6% of all firms) in 1972 to 12.3 million (40% of all firms) in 2018.

Who’s Running in Our Local Election?

2019-04-24T15:34:42-05:00

While the race for the White House and Congress often grips the nation, participation in – and even awareness of – our local elections has significantly declined in recent years.

Ironically, these local elections concern the offices and issues that have clear and immediate implications for voters in their day-to-day lives – arguably more so than federal contests. Such elections are not only for mayors and council positions, but also local judges, sheriffs, clerks, school board members and other officials. Local elections also include community issues that are put directly to voters – through various ballot measures and initiatives.

Bottom line: these are the elections that affect you the most. Your quality of life is on the ballot.  Please vote in our upcoming […]
