Home was listed with another agent for 87 days with no offer…listed with Kopa Real Estate and under contract in 4 days with multiple offers for over asking price

When the sellers of this home started searching for a Realtor to help them sell the house, they asked friends on Facebook for a referral. They were connected with a friend of a friend and listed their house for sale with that agent.

After 87 days on the market they never received an offer and their agreement with the first agent expired. Because we have a successful track record of selling homes that were listed with another agent before us and didn’t sell the sellers contacted us.

What the sellers didn’t know was their first agent has only sold 2 listings in the last 3 years. They

Someone asked this in our neighborhood Facebook group and it’s a great question. The short answer is no…you don’t need to do any updating to your home to get it sold. The market is good enough to sell your home in any condition. In fact, if your home is in poor condition there has never been a better time to sell it As-Is than today.

On the other hand, if you are trying to sell for the most money that isn’t really the question you should be asking. What you should be asking is what make-ready can you do to get the best ROI and sell your home for the highest price possible.

What do I do when I sell my personal homes? Here’s the 4-part process I think about before doing any make-ready.

Would you believe through July we have had clients who were born in 14 different countries? We’ve also had clients from just about every race, creed, color and family unit you can imagine. Sometimes I say only the deli outside the UN has a more diverse clientele than we do.

With everything going on right now attention within the real estate industry is being paid to fair housing. That’s good because historically housing has been one of the worst areas of discrimination in America.

We want you to know whoever you are and wherever you came from Kopa Real Estate is ready to help you! It’s the right thing to do, it’s good business and if you are selling your home it will make you money.

The reason I say it will make you money is when

How To Attract The Emotional Buyer

If you ask me why so many home sellers hire us when they decided to sell my answer would be simple. When it comes to selling your home the price you receive comes down to whether or not you are trying to attract a buyer buying based on emotion or based on logic.

The buyer buying based on emotion will always pay the most for your home. What we have done is come up with a repeatable and market proven system to attract and appeal to the emotional buyers in our area.

Sellers who understand the difference have great success. Sellers who try to use logic often wind up frustrated because the real estate market and buyers don’t react the way a logical mind hopes.

One of the many ways we add value to our

Almost every day someone calls me to ask about the market. They tell me they’ve been planning to relocate for a new job, move up to a bigger home or even downsize. Usually the conversation starts with “Am I crazy to even think about selling my home right now?”

Most people are shocked when I say “Would you believe we are in a stronger seller’s market than we were a year ago?” The overall statistics for April and May are ugly. That’s in the past as sellers removed their homes from the market and buyers cancelled contracts. These charts show the supply and demand statistics demonstrating fewer active listings and more homes under contract compared to the same weekly figures from one year ago. If you want to gauge where the market is going you

Most of our friends and clients are pretty savvy and can sniff out when something sounds too good to be true. When a friend saw another Realtor’s advertisement guaranteeing multiple offers, he asked me how someone can do that and what’s the catch?

When you hear someone say they will get you multiple offers you probably imagine that means your home will sell for over asking price. What would you think if it really means you will get multiple low-ball offers below market value? I can’t tell what you would think, but when I explained what is really going to happen my friend felt like the advertising is misleading.

Guaranteeing multiple offers is pretty easy. In fact, any Realtor can guarantee you multiple offers.

Here’s how it works…

In April, we saw the number of sales decline by 90 from last year. That’s about what we’d expect to see during a pandemic. With 123 homes pending as of 5/1 things should start looking better going forward. 123 homes pending with only 88 homes active means we still have a strong seller’s market. However, we are seeing homes that are not selling. Although we are optimistic, we have definitely entered a more professional market and who you hire to sell your home does matter. In April the lowest priced home was in Cedar Park Town Center and the highest priced home was a 5,451 SF home on 4 acres located between Vista Ridge and 183A.

When you hire a real estate agent to sell your home you have every right to expect the brokerage the agent works for has your best interests in mind at all times. How will you feel when you find out that might not be true? 

It’s basic Economics 101 that you will receive the best price for your home by advertising it with the widest net. You want to advertise your home to all the real estate agents in your area and as many buyers as possible who are in the market for a home like yours.

What if I told you we are hearing about more and more real estate brokerages that are trying to sell their listings by only advertising them to the agents that work for that specific office?

Why would they do that?

In some instances, it’s because a

Should you buy or sell a home in today's market? Realtors sometimes have a bad habit of always saying it's a great time to buy or sell. The truth is it depends on your particular situation, the house you are buying or selling, the sub-market of the house and the buyer profile for the house.

As always if you have a question call/text Eric at 512-791-7473  or email eric@koparealestate.com.

Everyone is asking me “How’s the real estate market?” Here’s what we are seeing.

Transactions are still happening. As of today, March 30th, in the Austin MLS on average over 100 homes are going under contract every day. Things are slowing down but people are still selling and people are still buying.

Here's what we are seeing with our business. Some of our sellers and buyers are telling me they are going to hold off for now and I’m supporting them in that decision while I continue to keep them aware of what’s happening.

Some of our clients need to sell now and some need to buy now, and we’re doing that with all the appropriate precautions.

All of this is day by day and in some cases hour by hour. Things may be different by the
