How to Sell Your Home
Faster and For More $$$
The I-35 Corridor from South Austin down past Buda, Kyle, and San Marcos is growing like gangbusters. Drive around a bit and you'll notice all of the new construction underway. These subdivisions, with all of their bells and whistles, are attracting a lot of buyers, buyers that would otherwise be looking at your home! But even so, resale homes are still selling. The key is to choose a Realtor® that can help you make sure that it is your home that they are buying.
The decision you make as to who you choose to help you sell your home is more critical than ever! The time when sticking a sign in your yard and putting a home on the MLS was enough is behind us. It is a competitive market out there with fewer, pickier and more informed buyers. Look at the statistics…the numbers show that builders are selling homes. Often they are offering incentives such as paying the Buyer's closing costs and that's very appealing. The fact of the matter is that the Builders are your competitors. And if prices are in the same price ballpark, let's face it most Buyers will choose to go with new construction...unless your home has something the new home doesn't. And that's where we come in. We don't want to see your home sit on the market for days. Working as a team we will help you make sure your home standouts above the rest!
YOUR HOME'S VALUE
Getting a Current Market Analysis (CMA) on your home will give you a general idea of your home’s value. The CMA uses data from current listings/sales of homes similar in size, number of bedrooms, age, etc. It’s a good start, BUT it's not the whole picture nor does it give us a List Price.
To determine a List Price, we go beyond the CMA. We need to get inside. We consider additional things like; floorplan, condition, upgrades, curb appeal, and the general feeling of the home. We even factor how it will show up in photos after staging. We combine the objective with the intangibles.
We’d be happy to do a walkthrough at no cost or commitment on your part. Once we've seen your home, we can even offer suggestions as to what you can do to increase the value of your home before you put it on the market. Call us. What have you got to lose?
