Almost every day I get calls or have people attend our seminars thinking they can’t sell their house because of what they are hearing in the news. I assure you we are still helping people like you sell their homes and If what you are hearing has stopped you from making a move contact us to talk about your plans. Many people have benefited this year from scheduling a buying power and home improvement audit. I’ve found that even if what I tell them isn’t what they want to hear it allows them to make better decisions and move forward with their life. I’m not saying it’s easy but in the end our clients always say it’s worth it to move on to a better place.

Who Is Moving Right Now?

One of our recent clients were the original owner of their home. They…

Hey there, Avery Ranch Residents!

Are you ready for a day of bargain hunting and treasure hunting? Mark your calendars for an event that's become a beloved tradition in our community—the Avery Ranch Fall Community Garage Sale!

After 497 people told me they were going to wait to move until the market is good again, I realized I wasn’t doing a good job. 

You see, I am a “Professional Mind Maker Upper” and people count on me to consult with them so they can make the best decisions for their lives and their families. There’s a saying “Garbage in and garbage out” meaning if you don’t use accurate information, you won’t make good decisions. I was letting people use bad information without taking the time to ask more questions and explain some of the data that’s available about the real estate market. 

I have to give myself a little grace here because I haven’t gotten much sleep lately and I’ve changed a lot of diapers over the last few months so it’s possible I simply…

I'm primarily a listing agent so I'm seeing buyers every weekend at our open houses. I'm also talking to agents and I'm seeing the offers that they put in every day. These are the four mistakes that I'm seeing buyers make in March of 2023.

Making Bad Offers

The first mistake I'm seeing is putting in “bad offers”. What I mean by that is a lot of buyers are out there and they're thinking they're going to make low offers. And you know what? A lot of sellers are actually negotiable right now.

Sellers are willing to come down on their price if they see that it's a good deal and you're a solid buyer. However, I've noticed that many buyers are submitting offers at a low price with unfavorable terms that are unrealistic to both myself as a listing…

Determining the list price of your home in the Austin area is a delicate balance that involves taking into account a variety of factors. The perfect balance can be achieved by considering the following:

  1. Comparable Sales: Researching recent sales of similar homes in the area (comparable sales) can provide a good starting point for determining the list price. This will give you an idea of what similar homes in the area are selling for and can help you set a realistic price for your own home.
  2. Home Condition: The condition of your home is also an important factor to consider when determining the list price. A well-maintained, move-in-ready home will generally command a higher price than a home that needs repairs or updates.
  3. Market…

Because we have a market-proven system to sell investment properties that have always been a good portion of our business. This year we have been contacted by an unusually large number of investors who are considering selling their investment property. Some of the investors think the market is nearing a top while others have decided being a landlord isn’t for them. If you are thinking about selling your investment property here are a few questions to ask yourself.

Do you want to be a landlord?

I believe successful investors enjoy owning investment properties and they run their investment properties like a business. If you don’t enjoy some of the negative aspects of owning rental properties such as dealing with tenants or having to lease a…

Happy New Year Austin homeowners and home buyers. Here are my top 5 predictions for the Austin real estate market for 2022 but first let’s review the real estate statistics covering 2021 for the Austin, TX MLS area. It was another great year for real estate in the area.

The number of sales was down 5.7% to 3,756 sales but up 2.9% sales for the year with 44,871 sales overall.

The average months of inventory remained at less than 1 month. That means if no additional homes come on the market, it would take less than a month for all the homes currently for sale to be sold. A real estate market with 4-6 months of inventory is considered balanced between buyers and sellers so we are still in a strong seller’s market.

The average…

One of the most frequently asked questions and something that is commonly misunderstood about selling your home is what taxes you will pay. The tax code can be confusing and isn’t always black and white. Hopefully the takeaway from this article is you likely won’t pay any taxes and if you do, they may be less than you expect. If you are holding off selling due to taxes contact me and I can point you in the right direction of how to find out what you will pay based on your situation. In addition, looking at IRS Publication 523, Selling Your Home is a great resource to understand what taxes you may or may not have to pay.
