Rent prices for Austin apartments have come down | FOX 7 Austin

SUMMARY: In Austin, the rental market has shifted in favor of renters, allowing for negotiation on rent prices. Blaine Thomas, a Southwest Austin resident, saw a significant decrease in his rent from $1,900 to $1,200-$1,300 over the past year. Austin realtor Olivia Veil confirms average rents have dropped about 10%, returning to 2021 levels. The decrease is attributed to an overcompensation in new constructions during the pandemic. However, rent decreases are not uniform; downtown areas remain stable. It's advisable to negotiate if landlords attempt to raise rents, as current market conditions often do not justify increases. Home prices have also declined, but less significantly than rents.

Apartment prices have actually come down significantly in the last year, and there are plenty of bargains to be had. 7 On Your Side reporter John Krinjak has some expert advice.

SUMMARY: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has reached a settlement in a lawsuit with Alexandra Davis, who claimed to be his daughter, and her mother, Cynthia Davis. Alexandra had sued Jones for a paternity test, arguing she wasn't bound by a 1998 paternity agreement signed by her mother. Jones counter-sued the Davises for breaching this contract. Jones expressed contentment with the case's resolution, despite it being an unwanted situation. The settlement includes Jones dropping his counter-suit in exchange for Alexandra dropping all her claims, and she will be barred from suing again on this matter.

All lawsuits have been dropped between Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and a woman who claimed she's his daughter.
