Teravista Community Open House: A Huge Success!

Thank you to all who helped make the Teravista Community-Wide Open House a huge success. We had an unbelievable turnout! We would like to thank the event sponsors: John McClellan with Supreme Lending, Laurie Nunnallee with First American Title and Nunnallee Inspections, and also Newland Properties for providing The Ranch House as a venue for visitors to relax in the shade.

We were excited for the opportunity to help bring together all of the community for an event of this scale. Our contributions at Team Ensor included submitting a press release, organizing the list of homes to be held open with other Realtors, promoting it on a local radio show, and placing ads in the Statesman. We believe that anything we can do to increase the traffic for our Teravista home for sale is a worthwhile endeavor!

Here’s some pics we took as we were just setting up at The Ranch House:

Builders and Realtors to Host Community-Wide Open House in Teravista on Sunday, June 27, 2010

Teravista Community Open House to Showcase 40 (yes, forty!) Homes

Realtors and new home builders are teaming up together to host a community-wide open house this Sunday, June 27, 2010 from 1-4pm in Teravista, a golf course community in Round Rock, Texas.

Excerpt taken from our Press Release on the event:

“In Teravista, homes are listed for sale by numerous Round Rock real estate brokerages and agents. Today’s modern real estate brokerage understands the power of a team effort, and will often participate in collective efforts such as this to help their sellers home get noticed. “It is a buyers market, and sellers desperately need exposure to get their home sold. This is a wonderful way to get that exposure.” said Shannon Ensor, principal of Team Ensor at Sky Realty.”

Developer, Lender Show Their Support

Newland Communities, the developer for Teravista, has expressed an interest as a result of our marketing efforts, and we are thrilled to have their participation.  Newland will be providing us with use of The Ranch House at Teravista as a place for visitors to relax, and John McClellan of Supreme Lending will be providing a free BBQ lunch. Lender representatives will be on-site to answer mortgage-related questions and to pre-qualify any potential buyers.

Mueller – A Fine Example of New Urbanism

Here in Texas, we love our cars. Many of us practically live in them, as we drive from home to work to school and many other places each and every day.  However, some of us don’t love the time spent sitting in traffic and at red lights, or the feeling of isolation that sometimes occurs in suburban neighborhoods that are nearly deserted during the weekdays when everyone is off at work.

Add to this the green movement that is gaining momentum as communities become more socially conscious of their impact on the earth, and what we get is neighborhoods growing out of the new urbanism movement. Mueller is a great example of new urbanism.

 What is New Urbanism?

It’s a lot of things, but in a nutshell it’s a way of life that doesn’t involve getting in your car, because everything you could possibly need or want is within a short walk from where you live. The streets and sidewalks are scenic and pedestrian-friendly. Retail shops are mixed with commercial, office and residential structures. There are green spaces,  pools  and playgrounds,  and all are built around a town center concept. Neighborliness, community self-sustainability and green building are promoted in the architecture and design of the neighborhood. This is what Mueller in East Austin offers.

 Home Affordability Program

In addition, Mueller’s developers, along with other foundations, have created a Home Affordability Program which allows qualified individuals  who might otherwise be unable to afford to live here the opportunity to own a home in Mueller. The use of green building, which is being incorporated in everything from infrastructure to housing, also promotes affordability through lower utility and energy bills.

Walkability is key also, which Mueller offers in spades with Dell Children’s Hospital, the impending arrival of the Austin Children’s Museum, and what is rumored to become a full-service HEB fashioned after its Central Market Design. 

 What’s Selling In Mueller

The homes that are selling in Mueller right now range from about 1800 square feet up to 3600 square feet and are priced  from the mid $300’s  to $900,000.  Builders in the neighborhood  include David Weekly Homes, Standard Pacific and Muskin.  One of the most outstanding and innovative builders in Mueller is locally-based Streetman Homes, which year after year has garnered impressive awards including Best Green Builder and Best Product Design.  Their model home at 2300 Tom Miller Drive should be included in any tour of the area.  It’s energy-efficient, gorgeous, creatively designed, and very unique. 

The next time you’re sitting in traffic along I35 North near the Airport Road exit, take a detour to Mueller and spend a little time strolling the greenbelt that surrounds the development and was designed and is currently maintained by the Lady Bird Johnson Wild Flower Center.  Also don’t miss the still-standing and soon to be restored control tower, and one of the original wood hangars in place from its airport days. 

Mueller Development, shaping up to be one of the most vibrant and progressive urban village concept communities that Central Texas real estate has to offer, is a must-see for any newcomer to the area or current Austin suburbanite looking for a place closer to town.
