Many times I will hear someone say “The Realtor made me price my home for $500,000” and that’s not the way I look at it.

The approach we take when talking about pricing for your home is we are a consultant. Although I certainly can tell you what price I recommend or I can tell you what I would do if I was in your situation my job isn’t to make that decision for you. My job is to give you so much information and advice that together we can arrive at the best decision for your situation.

Most agents only have 1 pricing strategy but in reality there are 3 ways you can price your house.

Aspirational Pricing

The first way to price your home is what we call “Aspirational Pricing.” This is a strategy where we are priced well above the

There are several advantages of selling your home in a bidding war. You will get the highest price, you will get the best terms in the original contract and you will have leverage if the buyer tries to negotiate too much after an inspection.

26 of the homes we have sold this year have been sold with multiple offers. That doesn’t happen by accident. Here are some tips that will make it easier for your home to sell in a bidding war.

Appeal To Emotion Not Logic

To get into a bidding war you need the buyers to act quickly. We need the buyers to fall in love with your home and ask how much over asking price they need to pay. We need to remove anything that will keep a buyer from wanting to make a great offer. In marketing this is called

One of the interesting things I have noticed in the real estate market today is homes that otherwise might get passed over in a more balanced market are selling fast. Because buyers have so few homes to choose from, they are overlooking defects that would turn them off if they other options.

What that means for you is if you own one of these 3 types of homes and you plan to sell in the next year you should consider selling now. Here are the 3 types of homes…

Homes that back to a busy road or are on a tiny lot

Two of the features most home buyers are looking for are privacy and space in the back yard. Market research has told us buyers are turned off by homes where you can see cars while inside the house. Homes that overlook busy roads or

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.

Buyer Profile

The first time I met the owner of 10721 Rathdowney was at the end of March. We stood on his back patio and he was so nervous he couldn’t stop shaking. He had lost his job in Dallas and the tenants he had at this rental property here had trashed the house. He didn’t know what to do and didn’t know who could help.

He needed the money but he didn’t know how to get the tenants to move out and he didn’t know how to sell the house without selling for a low-ball price that he was offered by an investor. Fortunately, he called us before it was too late.

The first thing we did was put a plan together. With our help he negotiated with the tenants so they would vacate the home within 15 days. During that time, we helped the owner get contractors

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

The first week of January I went to Orlando for a marketing conference. On the flight home the passenger next to me was saying he expected 2020 to be a great year. He said all the economic trends were going to keep getting better and better. I agreed but also mentioned the problem with trends is they tend to continue until something unexpected happens.

Of course, if I truly had any idea what was going to happen I would have been able to capitalize on it and I would be writing this from my own private Caribbean island. If we have learned anything in the first 6 months it is that our crystal balls are usually a little bit fuzzier than we would like.

Some of the things we have learned this year are…

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 mid-March the entire market freaked out. Buyers cancelled contracts and lenders changed underwriting guidelines. We recommended several of our owner-occupied listings take their houses off the market temporarily. I had been tracking the rolling 7-day average of homes going under contract to gauge the direction of the market. To give you an idea of how bad a shock we went through and how fast it happened here are the number of homes that went under contract in the entire Austin MLS the previous 7 days…

That was a huge drop and we’ve almost recovered. We are still off from this time last year by but transactions happen every day and things are heating up.

Despite the overall number of houses selling being down, we are not
