Marketing Strategy at the Austin Boardwalk Opening Ceremony Hampered

Mayor Lee Leffingwell This mornings ceremonies of the Austin Boardwalk was held under the blistering heat but that certainly didn’t persuade the thousands of Hike & Bike users, supporter and many other Austinites from attending this special occasion. As a frequent walker and runner of the trail I was glad to see it finally open after what seemed like years to build. But I didn’t attend the ceremony for the sheer pleasure either. Needless to say I had ulterior motives.  In my infamous wisdom I attempted to capitalize on this unique opportunity to market my Austin real estate business to the thousand or so attendees by wearing my Keller Williams Realty walking billboard sign.  Unfortunately my efforts we short lived when I was approached before the opening ceremonies by a very nice and polite park ranger who informed me that I was free to stay by my David Board Properties Billboard had to GO.  I politely asked if there was a city ordinance that prohibited by billboard and at first the park ranger seemed a little puzzled but said she was told by an official that since it was a city sponsored event and unregistered advertising was not allowed Council Member Chris Riley    Although a little disappointed I thanked the ranger and placed my walking billboard in my car, changed into some shorts and a tank top, grabbed my awesome real estate 35mm Cannon camera and started talking pictures and video of the entire event. I even got a few pictures of the mayor and a few city council members.  There were other local vendors at the event but they were giving away free tee shirts, coffee, water and what I thought was the crowds favorite, ice cream on a stick.Billboard Picture  Even tho my primary intention was to promote the David Board Properties and the Austin side of my real estate business, I had a great time and I think most of the pictures reflect that Austinities did too.

The opening event took place at the Lakeshore Trailhead at the eastern end of the Boardwalk, located at 1928 South Lakeshore Boulevard (78741). Guest speakers included the Honorable Mayor Lee Leffingwell, Mayor Pro Tem; Sheryl Cole, City Council Member’s Chris Riley and Mike Martinez along with many other city officials and local dignitaries.   There was a ribbon cutting ceremony,  live music by the SoundWaves, a festive march across the Boardwalk led by the Eastside Panther Drumline, and an aerial dance performance under I-35 by Blue Lapis Light  presented by The Trail Foundation and underwritten by Silicon Labs.    The Boardwalk will close a 1.3-mile gap along the southeast portion of the 10-mile Butler Trail. The Trail came to life during the 1970s thanks to a unique public-private civic effort led by the Citizen’s Committee for a More Beautiful Town Lake and its Honorary Chairwoman, Lady Bird Johnson. Today, the Butler Trail remains a key part of Austin’s quality of life, with 3,000 to 15,000 people using it every day of the year. 

Summertime 2014 in Austin Should Be Prime Open House Season

Open House Austin

Short & Sweet—Austin and Bastrop Open House Checklist

Estimates so far indicate that summertime 2014 is likely to be a better than usual season for Austin home sales. The past winter threw a wet blanket over all kinds of business activity, creating a perfect scenario for a sales bounce back—and that’s exactly what is beginning to show up in the stats. As Bloomberg News reported last week, sales of homes “climbed in April for the first time in three months…the biggest in six months…”

If you will be taking advantage of the uptick by listing your property for this summer’s market, having an open house in Austin, Tx is a prime way to attract prospective buyers. With a little focus and energy, getting your home in shape can be easier than you might imagine.

The checklist is short:

Landscaping

The place to begin is with the Summertime Open House starts with the landscaping—it frames the picture that’s the first thing buyers see when they pull up during the warm months. If you don’t have summer flowers planted, that’s okay—improvise! Purchase a few hanging baskets and potted plants. Place them along pathways, the entrance, and other places that could use a little bit of color. Hose the exterior, but if the years have been too tough, you may need a refresher coat of paint or trim. Perk up the lawn with an easy-to-apply lawn food spray; edge where needed; then mow and admire!

Get a Fresh Outlook

Give your windows a good cleaning (outside first)—it’s surprising the amount of sparkle that simple job can add to your Austin open house. Air the house thoroughly as you do a deep clean where it’s needed: usually a shampoo of carpets and rugs will accomplish the lion’s share of the work. Add some summer color to your rooms with fresh throw pillows, and as your open house draws near, see where a few well-placed floral arrangements would add bright color to draw the eye.

Last Checks

Before the day of your open house, there are a few more quick checks to be made. Walk around the house. Are the air conditioner units clean? Are the gutters and rain spouts in good shape? Outdoor spaces are great selling points to make your home more attractive to buyers, and a summertime Austin open house creates the perfect opportunity to show them off. There are always a few little things you’ve been meaning to attend to…now is the time!
