Selling Your House for the Highest Possible Price
When you put your house on the market, chances are you’re hoping the following will happen:
- It will sell quickly.
- You will get the highest price possible for your property.
- The process will be smooth and trouble-free.
We’re the experts at achieving just that for our clients. In 2018, our listings sold significantly faster (22 days versus 54 days) and for a greater percentage of the original asking price (98.4% versus 97.8%) than the Central Texas averages. A 0.6% difference in sales price is equivalent to an extra $2400 in your pocket on a $400,000 home! Less time on market also means less stress and inconvenience for you.
We’re proud to be the real estate agents of choice for those who want a great experience selling their home. We take a “clients-first” approach, which means you’ll be working with professionals who truly listen to you, promote your listing aggressively, and keep working until your property is sold and closed.
So how do we do it? The road map to selling any home is illustrated in the simple graphic below.
Pricing your home correctly is key to any successful real estate transaction. If you list your house too high, few buyers, if any, will see it. Conversely, if your price is too low, you could end up leaving thousands of dollars on the table. With our experience and extensive knowledge of the local market, we can help you determine the optimum price for your home.
How your home “shows” will determine whether viewings are converted into offers. To help you prepare your home for the market, we hire (at our cost) a professional staging consultant to visit your home and make specific recommendations on how to make it more desirable to potential buyers. In many cases, these suggestions cost very little but can really improve how well it shows.
It’s not enough in today’s market to put a sign in the yard, put the property in MLS, and pray that it sells. We have a written 8-Week Marketing Plan that shows you week-by-week what we are doing to market your home. Furthermore, our REDM certification (Real Estate Digital Marketer) means that we have advanced training on marketing both neighborhood homes and unique properties. Some of the marketing tools we use that set us apart from other Realtors include:
- Advanced HDR Photography
- 3D Walkthrough Virtual Tours
- Drone Video of Outdoor Spaces
- Single Property Websites
- Social Media Campaigns
- Luxury Post Reflective Signage
We know how to attract many qualified buyers and get that SOLD sign on your front lawn, fast.
But preparation and marketing is not all we do. Consider the seller’s roadmap shown below. Once an offer has been received, you need agents that know how to negotiate on your behalf and manage the numerous issues that can prevent closing.
Throughout the process, we’re with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered and that the entire experience is a positive one.
If you haven’t sold a home before, keep in mind that we work on contingency. We only get paid when your home sells so our interests are aligned with yours.
