We’re holding an open house at 507 Russet Valley Drive in Cedar Park, Texas. If you want to take a look at this beautiful home, head on over there from 11 am – 1 pm on Saturday, July 15! That’s tommorrow.Hermann says please like and share!
Our guess is that the right buyer just hasn’t showed up, because Russet Valley is still beautiful and still ready for new owners. It’s even better now that they finished cleaning up the back yard and made the front all beautiful, too.
Carol has been doing lots of showings, so we’re hoping one of those sticks. In the meantime, here are some new pictures she took, to ENTICE you!

Sometimes sales fall through during the option period, and that’s what happened with our previous Russet Valley buyer. And the backup had already found something else, so…it’s back!
We’ve already had some positive feedback from showings, including this nice compliments;
This was a nice one to see not sure it will work, but keeping it on the list. They certainly did some very nice work. Wish they had purchased the home next door and remodeled it in their beautiful work!
We aren’t worried that it will sell, since this is a great time to be on the market, right after school gets out, and it’s a great house. If you know anyone interested in a house in Cedar Park, please share this link!Hermann says please like and share!
Definitely, definitively, and darned right, the highlight of yesterday was finding out what the multiple offers on Russet Valley were, and deciding which one to accept. Ah, that’s a nice position to be in!
So, after the 4 pm deadline for offers passed, Carol analyzed them and sent them to me and Lee to review (it’s our personal house, remember). She also calculated our profit (potential) and other useful real estate agent stuff, so we could make an informed decision. In the end, we accepted one of the offers, and are very happy for the new owners, who said really nice things about the renovation job.
Why We Are Happy
While making a little money will make us happy, the fact that this whole process fit in with our goal of making a better life for everybody makes us even happier. On our blog for potential sellers, I wrote up the story of this house, which you might enjoy reading. From an investor standpoint, though, there was a lot to make us feel good:
First, we bought the house to help out someone who needed to move away fast and had no time to clean up a house that was in rough shape and full of fleas. We bought it at a reasonable price that enabled the owner to start a new lift, and we made the house livable. That provided income for our painters and other contract workers.

You know, when you watch those television shows about the “flippers” and how they make a beautiful house, then have multiple offers to decide on, you think that happens every time. Well, followers of our team know pretty well that it does NOT happen every time. We had all those offers fall through at the beginning, then have had a couple of painful sales that got messed up by things outside our control, which I will not go into today…
The Russet Valley house, while not an official Hermit Haus Redevelopment project, was worked on by our team, and it’s a WINNER. We had an offer right after the first open house, when we weren’t even finished getting the lawn and garden in shape. By yesterday, we had two offers. There is a rumor of a third coming in today.
No, that’s not happening. Instead, Carol is doing what any ethical listing agent would do, and she has given all interested parties until 4 pm today to get in their best and final offer. That saves everyone the pain of going back and forth endlessly. We are quite excited to see what lucky family will get to live in this great home.
And I know I keep saying this, but wow, has this project turned out well. It also helps that it’s on a corner lot in a quiet, friendly neighborhood. No wonder it’s so popular with buyers.
We will update you tomorrow on how things come out. Thanks for sticking with us, friends.Hermann says please like and share!
