brand new home benefitsLast week, we shared 5 perks of buying a brand new home. But we only scraped the surface of reasons why people are choosing new houses over existing models. Without further ado, here are 5 more benefits of buying a brand new home!

5. Move-In Ready

Forget renovations or improvements—your new home is already in perfect condition! That means you're free to move in and enjoy it, without any muss, fuss or hassle.

4. Less Maintenance

Without any worn out systems, there is much less maintenance in a new home than in an existing one. You shouldn't have to worry about repairs to heating, plumbing, air or appliances for at least a few years. Even better, most roofs last at least 20 years. This means less hassle and a much smaller impact on your savings…

employee engagementOne of the simplest facts that accounts for Austin's rapid growth over the last few years is that people want to be here. There are a lot of factors that can account for that... heck ask 10 different people on any Austin street and you'll get 10 different answers. Some people will talk live music, others will talk about the food or the weather or less tangible things like the culture or the atmosphere.

All of these are valid reasons to be drawn to a place like Austin. Just last week though, another reason to love our city was made public. For the third year in a row, Austin has ranked in the top 10 cities in the country for employee engagement.

Anyone who follows our blog knows that as an organization, we here at JB Goodwin value our employees and…

Mobile-Friendly Austin: The New Real Estate Standard

The Predecessor to Mobile-Friendly Websites

It seems like just yesterday that the best thing a website could provide for its users was a “mobile version” of itself. This was pretty straightforward. You would open up a site on your smartphone and it would resemble a jumbled-up puzzle, or would show only a portion of the site’s content. You may have had to scroll left or right to see the rest of the content– or you may not have been able to see the rest at all. But not to worry - glide downward and many websites would have a line of small-print text reading “switch to mobile version”. Click on this text, and the site would shift to a simplified form of the full version, one that fit perfectly to your screen and was easy to navigate.

There was a…

jbgoodwin-realtors-newsJBGoodwin REALTORS® successfully defended the rights of real estate professionals in Texas against a suit brought on by patent troll Property Disclosure Technologies (or PDT). For those unfamiliar with patent trolls or patent holding companies, they are firms who purchase patents with the sole purpose of looking for, and suing companies in violation of those patents for financial gain. They do not produce intellectual property, nor do they conduct any original research or manufacturing. Most of their suits never make it to court, as the threat of hefty legal fees cause most defendants to settle out of court.
