The Austin Area Multi Listing Service and the Georgetown Texas MLS search tools have sure come a long way. Look what I found searching my desk for a lost file. A section of the Austin MLS Georgetown Listings dating from November 10, 1994!
I would love to hand this old listing book to an agent today who's used to immediate updates, multiple color pictures and links to tax information, past sales, comparable listings and more.
Think your listing photo's look bad,, check these grainy photo's out! Heck you can hardly read the print it's so bad.
Updated information? This was the newest issue, you would have to wait 2 weeks to get new information. Our market was pretty busy back then, probably a third of the listings had already been under contract.....oh for the good old days!
Comparable sales information? Sure just dig out all the old books and pore over em. Be sure and lift with your legs and not your back, these listing books could get heavy!
Need tax information? Well get in your car and drive over to the Courthouse! Be sure and take doughnuts to district clerk so she doesn't bite your head off for taking up all her time looking for the correct tax books. Don't even ask to see deed and mortgage records unless she's had her coffee!
Oh ya, if you want to show those listings, you better check with the listing agent before you go, a lot of them are not on lockbox, so you're gonna have to drop by the office and pick up keys.
Good luck, have fun showing houses!
