When I hit LISTING INFO, it went to “No property with that ID.”

Do you have an MLS for this casa? Can’t find it anywhere. Thanks!

When the property says ‘no id’, that means it has been taken down from the original listing for some reason.
In this case, it looks relisted (I think at a lower price):
I’ve updated the post above as well.

Sorry y’all, the new mls is 6573306. I was wrong abou the architect. But I do know the builder was H T Baker who had a home on the frist parade of homes in austin in 1953.
