New study on gentrification in Austin neighborhoods released

There are two sides to the gentrification issue. Many homeowners love it because they buy a property and the value goes up as new services come in, neighboring properties are better maintained and the neighborhood becomes safer. The flip side is that residents who may have roots in the neighborhood for generations can be displaced because of escalating rents or taxes.

Smart filers want to get the maximum number deductions to reduce the amount they are obligated pay but there are ground rules.

Easements can affect property use, and both owners and potential owners would be wise to find out about any potential easement before moving forward. As a buyer or owner, it could be important to know what an easement means and what you can do about it.
