Imaginary real estate

Posted on Saturday, July 7th, 2007 at 7:19pm.

In a recent Associated Press story, readers learned of a developer in Hawaii who is selling imaginary real estate. According to reporter Jaymes Song, two entrepreneurs in Honolulu are selling parcels of land that are currently 3,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. In their lighthearted concept, Norm Nichols and Linda Kramer are offering deeds to property on an undersea volcano that, with the help of some molten lava, might someday surge to the surface. At around $40 a pop, these deeds might be a fun gift, but aren’t the kind of real estate that people come to Great Austin Properties to buy.

The Austin home market, however, does offer pretty much anything your imagination can conceive. Here in Central Texas, there are plenty of opportunities for people to buy homes that don’t yet exist, but at least the ones we deal with are on visible land and accompanied by certified drawings and locked-in development plans. If you’ve been imagining yourself in a downtown Austin loft or a new Bee Caves house, we can help you make that dream a reality. We love spending time with people, hearing about their dreams then connecting them with the people who can turn those dreams into great Austin homes.

We don’t know if an underground volcano will someday change the shape of the Austin landscape, but we do know what is available for you today. We can help you find the Austin home that fits you perfectly. Call us at 512.600.1800 if you’re ready to discuss turning your imagination into reality. Search Austin homes for sale at
