This October issue of the Vista Oaks newsletter is our inaugural issue with a new print vendor and delivery system. The Board of Directors voted to switch to Peel Inc. because doing so has eliminated all costs of printing and delivery for the Vista Oaks Owners Association. The newsletter will be delivered through the US Postal Service. Please note, we will now publish the newsletter monthly instead of every other month. The volunteers who have served the newsletter extremely well in past years will continue to do so, only in slightly different roles. Jill Brown will continue to compile articles and perform research as the editor. The big change for her is relief from desktop publishing. For advertising information please contact Peel, Inc. at 263-9181 or visit www. PEELinc.com. The newsletter is also open to the Vista Oaks community to submit articles and social updates. The Board and our panel of volunteers believe that readers would enjoy learning more about our neighbors and neighborhood. A monthly newsletter will be a great source to announce anniversaries, marriages, scout achievements, and scholastic and sports awards. It can also be a perfect place for bunko, bridge, car, historic, quilting or other clubs to announce a search for new participants, and upcoming events or performances. All articles, photographs, announcements must be submitted to [email protected] for review of content and submission to the editor. Our hope is that the new format will bring a great community a little closer. -Vista Oaks Board of Directors

Vista Oaks Healthy Tailgating- (Continued from Page 6) to extra calories, which can mean extra pounds, even before the holiday season arrives! The good news is that with a few changes, such as these tailgate make-over tips, you can decrease the fat and calories and increase the nutrition of your tailgating menu, without sacrificing taste: It is also never a bad idea to have a fruit and/or vegetable tray available for those who are vegetarian or for low-calorie snacking. If you have a favorite tailgating food or snack, allow yourself to indulge in it, but try to replace other tailgating options with healthier alternatives and be mindful of portion sizes. Whether you are tailgating at the stadium or “tablegating” in your living room, it’s easy to keep game day food fun, tasty and healthy. Most importantly though, remember, it is about the camaraderie and the love of the game, not the food. Consider having your own game of touch football during half time to burn off those extra calories! With the last football games in both pro and college football set for the beginning of next year, we still have many opportunities to load up on calorie-laden and high-fat tailgating food. Practice these easy and tasty substitutions to help you stay healthy this football season. -Tarie Beldin

Vista Oaks Real Estate Activity- (Continued from Page 8)

Staying ahead in today’s real-estate market: The Austin market has slowed down after the summer selling months. According to the Austin Board of REALTORS, August sales were down 10% compared to the same time last year. The Median sales price dropped 4% from last year. It will be interesting to see how sales are affected in November with buyers scrambling to find that perfect house and close before the end of November before the $8,000 tax credit expires. I would advise home owners who are trying to get their house sold, to seriously evaluate how their list price compares to others in the neighborhood. If getting the house sold is a high priority, then have the price adjusted to make it a more competitive buy. If there are repairs you know a buyer will probably request, get them fixed now instead of waiting to find out when you are under contract. Chances are that a serious buyer will save precious time negotiating and make a fair offer if the house is already in good shape so they can close before the $8000 tax credit expires. The more prepared you are to help a buyer close on your home quickly, the higher your chances of getting a contract on it. With interest rates down since the end of August, more buyers are going to qualify for a loan. I have a strong feeling that between

now and mid Nov there is going to be a surge of buyers searching for suitable homes. If the buyer is already pre-approved and has a very competent loan officer working for them, the sale can be closed within 2 weeks if the house is in turn-key condition. So I say to all sellers out there, be prepared and good luck selling your homes. - Submitted by Vista Oaks Treasurer
