Hello Readers,  I ran across a great article in the New York Times that really puts into perspective just how great the buying opportunity is right now. We have not seen interest rates this low since 1971 and the market is stacked heavily in favor of the buyer when it comes to inventory and negotiations. Here is what the New York Times has to say... "Five or 10 years from now, when the financial crisis has ended and housing prices are up smartly once more, we will look in the rear-view mirror and realize that we missed a golden age for first-time home buyers..."

Well it's official...Rooster Springs and Walnut Springs, both new elementary schools in the Dripping Springs ISD, earned the ratings of Exemplary in 2008. That is great news for this up and coming school district.  Logic would have it that great ratings begin in elementary school.  So we would expect as time goes on and these kids move to Middle School and then to High School, we'll be seeing an entire shift in the school ratings. So congratulations to the Dripping Springs ISD.    Across District TAAS Rating Comparisons for the last 3 years In case you're wondering how the other schools did this past year, here's a snapshot. Keep in mind as you look at the ratings, that the school's accountability rating is just one way of looking at a particular campus.  Calls to school administrators,...

Step back in time and experience a day in the life of this Texas pioneer family.  One of three families to first settle the wilderness that is now Dripping Springs, Dr. Joseph and Sarah Pound built a log cabin on this site in the 1850's.  Some of the highlights are this old covered wagon, a rock smokehouse, a turning windmill, and a "hot frame," an underground greenhouse that stored plants and herbs through the winter. Dr. Joseph Pound was the first Doctor in this part of the Texas Hill Country.  Descendants of the Pounds actually lived at this site until 1983. Today, the farmstead is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and is included in the National Register of Historic Places.  Furniture and heirlooms were donated by the Descendant's of the Pounds to bring the home to life for everyon...
