Per KUT; A bookshop and a boutique tiny grocery store are headed to Hyde Park's former post office space

A bookshop and a boutique grocery store are headed to Hyde Park's former post office space KUT 90.5 | By Marisa Charpentier Published August 10, 2022 at 12:20 PM CDT Construction is underway at the former post office on 43rd Street and Speedway in Hyde Park. Since the beloved post office in Austin’s Hyde Park neighborhood shuttered in June 2021, neighbors have wondered what will become of the spot at the corner of 43rd Street and Speedway. The one-story brick building has remained vacant since its closure, serving as little more than a canvas for graffiti. But new details are coming to light about its future. The 55-year-old structure will be renovated and subdivided into retail and restaurant space. Two tenants, Tiny Grocer and First Light Books, have confirmed they’ll be opening up shop there next year. “I love that neighborhood,” said Steph Steele, owner of the local market Tiny Grocer. “Hyde Park was always on my list of where I think [this store] would do well and be well rec

Joel Richardson Prime Lending in the ATX; TIP of the week.

We have 30yr fixed rates and three ARM choices (10yr, 7yr and 5yr).   What’s the target market for this? Two Customer Groups: With the average home price in Austin around $500K, many homes are now priced well north of the conventional loan range. The challenge: Many customers have the income to qualify in this price range—they simply don’t have the resources for the down payment. Customers who don’t want to liquidate assets for their down payment.   How does this help Customer #2? Let’s take a $1M home. 5% down payment= $50K. A 20% down payment = $200K.

Mistakes sellers make on 1301 Exchangers. per Texas Association of Realtors

  Mistakes Sellers Make on 1031 Exchanges August 09, 2022 | Texas REALTORS® Staff An IRS 1031 exchange, also known as 1031 exchange or like-kind exchange, is a tax-favored transaction where the seller can take the proceeds from the sale of a property and reinvest it into another replacement property to defer capital gains or losses that otherwise would have been realized at the time of the sale.

The Texas Real Estate Research Center recently published an article that addresses eight mistakes that can occur when participating in a 1031 exchange.
