Spotlight on Canyon Creek Elementary ~ Paying it Forward Campaign and Fort Hood Soldiers

 Spotlight on Canyon Creek Elementary~Pay It Forward~Fort Hood Soldiers

 

Spotlight on Canyon Creek Elementary and Ft. Hood Canyon Creek Elementary in NW Austin went all out for their “Pay It Forward” campaign. They chose to make a difference for troops deploying to Afghanistan from Fort Hood, TX by making individual packages for the soldiers.

Barbara Cowman was in charge of the campaign (Barbara has a third grader at Canyon Creek Elementary). To help the children understand how military people serve they invited Tina Zientek, U.S. Air Force, Lieutenant Colonel, Amy Hall, Mental health Specialist in the National Guard from 1989-1994 (both Canyon Creek residents) and James LaVelle, Lieutenant, U.S. Navy to speak to the students.

Paying it forward

Excitement built and the children brought in snacks, drink powders, socks and flashlights. They decorated paper sacks which the items were delivered in and wrote a personal thank you to the soldiers. Barbara Cowan and Ann Okamura, with a young soldiers help, delivered the packages to the USO who in turn delivered them to the soldiers as they boarded their plane.

What a difference these children have made for the soldiers headed off for a tour in Afghanistan! Just one more lesson in giving back that happens all year long in Canyon Creek Elementary. Education is much more than learning your ABC’s. Learning to be productive and caring to others is a lesson learned by example and being exposed to the wonderful sense of happiness and self-confidence you feel when you do something for others.

Thank you Canyon Creek Elementary staff, parents and students for “Paying it Forward” to the soldiers at Fort Hood who deployed to Afghanistan!

Canyon Creek NW Austin ~ Market ~ April 2013

Canyon Creek NW Austin~Market-  April 2013

 

 

 

My objective is to provide you with a Real Estate Market snapshot of the Canyon Creek community in NW Austin. This report reviews the current market conditions and expectations as we continue on into second quarter of 2013.

 

Canyon Creek in NW Austin 78726

 

Canyon Creek is one of the most desired neighborhoods in NW Austin. It’s a prestigious master planned community that boasts several parks, a Junior Olympic pool, tennis courts, nature trails, top notch public schools, close proximity to our lakes, extensive entertainment and dining options. Canyon Creek offers homes from the high $200,000’s to the mid $500,000’s and includes 2 gated sections offering detached garden/condo home living options. 

 

One of the gated communities called the Villas at Canyon Creek by David Weekley Homes is currently building out the last of the 53 detached condos. I’ve separated these out from the resale properties.

 

Active Listings in Canyon Creek

 

As of May 6th the inventory in Canyon Creek is low with only 5 homes on the market. There is less than 1 month of inventory available thus creating a true seller’s market. If you are thinking of selling in Canyon Creek this spring it is an excellent time to get your home listed. If you are priced and staged well your home will sell.

 

Pending Sales in Canyon Creek

 

The pending sales in Canyon Creek; has risen to 20 pending homes, which bodes well for the spring market. It is good to see buyers finding homes in the Canyon Creek real estate market in-spite of the slimming inventory.

 

Home Sales in April 2013

 

Closed resale home sales in Canyon Creek in April were down but you need to know many sellers extended their close dates to the end of May and first part of June because the last day of school is May 31. Data isn’t always as it appears. Helping decipher real estate information is just one of the many reasons to employ my services.
