When the owners of 15909 Dink Pearson Ln called us they were concerned about the price we could get for their home because there had been several recent sales nearby for much lower prices.

If you are planning to sell your home but worried about having to move twice a leaseback may be a great option for you. Last year we helped 17 sellers negotiate a leaseback on their home so it is a process we are experienced with and can explain how it works in more detail regarding your particular situation.

A leaseback is where the seller of a home is allowed to remain in the property for a period of time after closing and is something that can be negotiated between the buyer and seller as part of a real estate contract. Not only is the option to have a leaseback negotiable but also the terms of the leaseback are negotiable.

To add a leaseback to your home sale there is a 2 page addendum attached to the standard contract. In the addendum the

“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.

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

YES, an open house will help sell your home. 72% of our homes have sold to a buyer who visited an open house.

Sometimes that means a buyer who visits the home only during the open house. It can also mean someone who came to view your home with their agent and wants to come back for a 2nd look. Other times a buyer attends an open house and then wants to come back with their agent.

One of the many things that make Austin real estate different from other areas is half the buyers are not committed to working with a real estate agent until the find a home they want to buy. If you don’t have an open house you are missing out on half the buyers in the area. Not having an open house means not fully exposing your home to the market.

Because we have

When selling your home it’s tempting to overprice your property. Of course selling your home for the most money is the goal of most people. However, what we have found is much like a baseball player who swings for the fences you are more likely to strike out than hit a home run by significantly overpricing your house.

A great example of what can happen to a seller that overprices their home recently played out in our neighborhood.

Last summer we were hired to help a couple sell their home. We suggested they price their home at market value, which was $485,000. After being on the market for 3 days we received 2 offers for the home and settled on a price of $486,500. We were also able to negotiate a free 2 month leaseback for the sellers to stay in

Global and US Economy
Dr. Greg Hallman gave some statistics of what overall seems to be a healthy economy that is back to “full potential.” He predicts GDP growth of 2.5-3% in 2018 as we continue this long (101 month) period of expansion.

Using dollars per square feet ($/SF) may be the most misunderstood area of real estate. It’s not unusual for me to meet with a client and have them say something like “My neighbor’s home is 1,800 square feet and it sold for $310,000. My home is 3,600 square feet so it’s worth $620,000.”

But, that’s not how real estate works. In general a smaller home will sell for a higher $/SF. I’ve always had a hard time explaining that until I was meeting with a couple at the neighborhood coffee shop.

We each had a different size cup of coffee and each cup had a different price. You can see the smallest cup of coffee cost $.32 per ounce. The last 4 ounces for the largest cup only cost $.12 per ounce. The larger the cup of coffee the lower the cost per ounce.
