The Big 12 does NOT have thew same recruiting advantages as the SEC, that is true. However TEXAS offers more recruiting advantages than the SEC or any other conference or program for that matter. No other team has a state full of top notch talent born and bred to go to their school (ok maybe Louisiana, but not nearly to the same extent).

Saban buying a home for a million dollars would be the equivalent of a normal person buying a house for about 10k dollars.

He's not going to buy his house off of the ******* internet.

And what do you know yet another personal attack.



The average home value in Austin is around $230k. So 4x the average value doesn't constitute luxury homes?

You deserve nothing but the worst vitriol from every person here you troll.

And no. It's not. The average salary in this country is around 50k. Does Nick Saban make 200k?

That's not personal. You were being stupid. I suggested ways to not be stupid. Really, I'm helping you.

This message board would be a much better place if you weren't such a stupid troll. I think we'd all agree on that.

Yep. It makes me laugh when people say Alabama is now a better job than Texas. Bama was mostly irrelevant on a national level for 15 years prior to Saban getting there. He turned the program around in no time at all. Texas right now is in better shape than Alabama was when Saban took over.

While some luxury home sellers and buyers won't choose to list their homes with Zillow, their homes will still show up on the website. Zillow doesn't just list the homes people list on their site, it's a real estate database that aggregates real estate listings all around the country. So it does include expensive home listings.

Some, yes, but the majority of extremely high end deals aren't going to be listed at all.

I disagree, the website wouldn't be doing it's stated purpose, to create an online real estate database, if it only listed homes for a certain price range. It's a pretty accurate way to gauge the price of homes for sale in an area, and I know some professionals who use the site in their job. Just because millionaires don't look for houses on Zillow doesn't mean that it doesn't include them. Zillow isn't just for people looking to buy homes. It's used by mortgage specialists and people who might be doing research on a certain area.

What I'm saying is that most homes that sell in the 10 million and up range are never going to be listed. It happens, of course, but extremely high-end real estate usually isn't something that works its way through the public because there's little point.

I think people fail to realize just how differently the extremely rich live from the rest of us.

Get a room or I guess a house together. Or a PM conversation. I hate it when lovers quarrel in public :(


Also anyone who thinks that moving to Texas isn't a major upgrade over 'Bama is out of their mind. New challenge, more prestigious team, and infinite money. The only question that remains is how the Mrs feels.

I think people fail to realize just how differently the extremely rich live from the rest of us.
Just admit you have no idea what you're talking about already.

I think you underestimate the real estate market for expensive houses. Those are some of the hardest houses to sell, and as a result are the ones that get promoted the most. Luxury houses are listed just like normal houses. Coldwell Banker has a special branch just for luxury real estate where houses are listed. There are many other real estate companies that specialize in luxury listings, Sotheby's International being one of them. These expensive listings are no different than normal listings, other than the price. They're listed in the same manner. And Zillow takes information from these real estate agencies that specialize in expensive listings and puts it in their database so that they can accurately represent the price of homes in one area.

Here are several multi million dollar homes that are listed in public, I found this information using Zillow.

I don't think that's true either. If you check out websites like Curbed.com you'll see that expensive real estate is often covered in public. A great example of this is Michael Jordan's attempt to sell his house in Highland Park Illinois. It was listed publicly with a luxury real estate company, they dropped the price numerous times, they promoted the heck out of the house, and weren't able to sell it and it eventually went to an auction house. The auction house has promoted the home in the same public channels. This was all done in view of the public. This is an extremely expensive property owned by a man who values his privacy, the real estate agency tried to sell his house in the same manner that other people use, listing the home, advertising it. And when it will be sold through auction, it won't be sold through some backroom deal the public didn't know about. The auction house has promoted the hell out of the property and sought all sorts of publicity for the house. And as a result they got a ton of interested bidders and had to delay the auction. And when you type in Michael Jordan Highland Park on Google, the first thing that comes up is Zillow. So even the most famous most powerful people end up selling their homes the way ordinary people sell theirs. The transactions are just a lot more expensive.

The point is, the market for the most expensive homes are extremely limited due to the price of the home. In order to get a competitive price you have to promote the property and generate interest amongst potential buyers. Because there are so few potential buyers, promotion and publicity is very important in these listings.

Then what would account for such the paltry number of listings for multi-million dollar homes in Austin? There's a tremendous amount of money flowing into that area.

There are over 150 homes listed for over $1m in Austin coupled with the fact land value in Texas is nowhere near what it is elsewhere. Yet again you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about here.
