Can You Sell Your Home In The Fall? You Can This Year!

Every year I keep track of trends and make notes to avoid making the same mistakes again. Last year I made a note that sellers needed to have their homes priced to sell by the end of July. Even though our market isn’t as seasonal as you might expect we can’t blame buyers for wanting to take a break and get out for a last summer vacation when it’s 105 degrees.

This year has been different. We have never seen the amount of traffic at our listings, the number of buyers visiting open houses and the offers from motivated buyers in Augusts as we did this year. Perhaps it’s simply supply and demand or buyers are motivated by the drop in interest rates this year. Whatever the reason, based on 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

Whenever I look at the real estate market statistics I like to pick out a few interesting things you might not know simply by looking at the numbers.

It is often difficult for me to explain how dollars per square foot works when trying to price real estate. Sometimes homeowners with beautiful homes will want to take the average $/SF and multiply that by the size of their home and then add their upgrades. In reality, when using the $/SF statistic for all of Austin, the numbers will skew more based on size than condition of the home.

A great example of this is the home in Austin that sold for the highest $/SF was also the smallest home and the home that sold for the lowest price. It is counterintuitive that your home which is likely much nicer and

“Last month, economists predicted an upwards of 5 percent growth in median home prices within the Austin area, and we have far surpassed that,” Steve Crorey, 2018 president of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, said. “This is especially evident in local markets where housing demand is strongest, such as Austin and Cedar Park. Home price increases are sharpest in these markets, while dwindling housing inventory in the lower price classes could be discouraging people from buying.” In the Austin-Round Rock MSA, home sales increased 5.7 percent year-over-year in February 2018 to 1,955 sales. The median price of single-family homes increased 3.6 percent to $299,900. Housing inventory remained flat at 2.0 months, the same as last February. “While wages and jobs in

Single-family home sales declined across most of the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in September, while inventory levels continued to increase, according to the September 2017 Central Texas Housing Market Report released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS®.

Brandy Guthrie, 2017 President of the Austin Board of REALTORS­® commented, “Despite last month’s dip in home sales activity, it’s important to remember that we’re comparing our current figures to the record-breaking housing market activity in 2016 and it’s not necessarily indicative of a downturn.”

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS®, agreed: “Austin has had one of the fastest job growth

As we head into the new year everyone wants to know what’s going to happen wit the real estate market. Let’s look at some predictions for 2017. 

Keep in mind if you went back 14 years some of my predictions would be off the mark. That being said, this is the advice I would give someone in my family if they were interested in real estate in our area. 

Overall we will see the market continue to go from a super hot to only above average. Home prices will be higher at the end of the year but consumers need to remember there are markets within markets and typically you’re only buying or selling one home. 

Predictions For Austin Home Sellers

For home sellers we will see any increasing spread between the homes that are in great condition and
