Client Testimonial

“Kopa Real Estate did an amazing job of marketing my home in Avery Ranch. If you are thinking about buying or selling in Avery, don't spend anymore time looking--call Eric. Unlike some other realtors I've worked with in the past, they understand how to market a house. While other homes are still for sale that were put up before mine, mine sold in days with 5 offers. They know how to create demand. HIGHLY recommend Kopa Real Estate. ” - Paul

Rumor has it one of my favorite restaurants in Austin will be opening another location in Avery Ranch. The speculation is they will be moving into the old Z Tejas building at the corner of Avery Ranch Blvd and Parmer Ln.

We would be very excited if this turns out to be true as their Sunday brunch is the best in Austin in my opinion.

When we asked Moonshine if they are opening a location they would not confirm they are but it sounded like they are working on making something happen.

Stay tuned for more details.

People have been telling me for 4 years the Austin area real estate market is about to crash. In fact I’ve seen some of the same people visiting our open houses for 4 years who haven’t bought a home because they are convinced prices will come down. So far that hasn’t turned out to be a good decision.

The real estate market works in cycles so no doubt one of these days the Austin area will cool off. Currently we are in a long upward trend. The thing about trends is they tend to continue until some event happens. What that even will be is anyone’s guess. It could be 6 months from now or 10 years from now.

The truth is if I knew when the trend will end I would be typing this from a beach on my own private island rather than my home in Austin.

One reason we hold so many open houses is we know an increasing number of buyers are searching for homes before they have a relationship with a Realtor. Some buyers are trying to buy homes without a Realtor at all. These are often the buyers who will pay the most money for your house.

Because we know this information it also means that it’s no longer good enough for your listing agent to simply place your home in the MLS and only advertise to Realtors. Doing that means your home is missing out on half the buyers who are shopping for homes the Austin area.

It is important for your home to be advertised on consumer websites like Zillow. Kopa Real Estate pays over $5,000 per year, which allows us to feature our listings on Zillow.

Every now and then an Austin area homeowner talks to us about selling their home and decides not to hire us. You can’t win them all!

I like to track those sales to see what happened. Sometimes it turns out good for them and sometimes it doesn’t.

One time it didn’t turn out very well happened this year in Austin. We talked with a homeowner about selling his home. Because we have a lot of experience in this section of the neighborhood we had a good idea of what he should do to better prepare his home for sale.

In the end this homeowner didn’t want to listen to any advice and decided to sell his home by himself. He told me he sold his home for $440,000 and out of that he paid a buyers agent commission.

A month later, 2 other homeowners in the

Something we emphasize at our home selling seminars is there is a market for homes in any condition and it is definitely possible to sell a home that isn’t in great condition.

What we also know is the typical Austin area buyer is looking for a home that is in move in ready condition. Spending a little bit of money in the right areas will give you a worthwhile return on investment. One of the reasons home sellers in the Austin area hire us is because we know what buyers are looking for because we have had thousands of conversations with buyers over the years.

June gave us several examples of homes where our clients were rewarded by taking advice about how to prepare their home before putting it on the market.

The best example was between two

When you interview a listing agent for your home it is important to find out if they have a listing strategy. Often, an agent will stick a sign in your yard, put your home on the MLS and pray to the real estate Gods that your home will sell. Having a detailed marketing strategy and experience selling in the Austin area will help you sell your home for more money and less hassle.

At Kopa Real Estate, we have a proven listing strategy developed over selling nearly 100 homes in the Austin area. Our strategy is so detailed we even know what the best day and time is to start showing your home and when the coming soon marketing should start.

Having a comprehensive marketing system will create demand and a sense of urgency when selling your home.

Many people think the only time you can sell your home is in the spring and early summer. The expectation is we have a flood of people from California moving to our area in the summer.

It might surprise you that our neighborhood isn’t as seasonal as you think. Of the last 50 listings we have sold in the Austin area, only 4 were sold to someone directly relocating their family to our area.

Although our population is growing rapidly from people moving here from all over the world it’s more likely the buyer of your home is already living nearby before buying your home. Sometimes buyers decide to rent an apartment first so they may be living in an apartment down Parmer. It’s also just as likely the buyer of your home already lives in the Austin area

We’ve been lucky over the years to sell some beautiful homes in the Austin area. 10608 Roy Butler Dr is definitely one of my favorites with a pool and panoramic views of the golf course, Brushy Creek Trail and Lake.

Because of the views when we met with the owners we knew should be priced aggressively. The list price was significantly over any of the comparable homes that have sold. In fact the list price was over $100,000 more than any home has ever sold for in the Austin area.

One of the reasons this listing is one of my favorites is because of the owners. They are experienced real estate sellers and knew to get their price it was important for their home to be in excellent condition. They were willing to take all our advice including bringing
