Tips for Sellers

     1. Work with the right Realtor

Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he is well connected to the real estate industry.

Listing your home with the right agent can make all the difference. Your home is an asset, and many times the success of its sale can be decided in the closing moments of a deal. With the popularity of our industry, almost everyone can host open houses and market your property online. In today’s fast-paced market, its more about who accurately represents your property, rather than who is listing it.

With my experience and deep understanding of the area, I will provide a transparent proposal for the successful sale of your property.

My goal is to represent you and your property the way you want to be represented.

If you’re looking to sell your home in South Texas, let’s talk. Give me a call at 512.720.9698 or fill out the form below.

  1. Get your home ready for the sale

When it comes to home selling, first impression is everything. You have to make sure your home is in top condition, with all systems working and updated. Every nook and cranny must be inspected and necessary repairs have to be done. While not required, home staging can be critical in selling a luxury home. Professional home stagers know what buyers look for in a home, and how to present your home in the best light.

  1. Determine the right price for your home

The price is the first thing buyers notice about your property. If you set your price too high, then the chance of alienating buyers is higher. You want your house to be taken seriously, and the asking price reflects how serious you are about selling your home.

Several factors will contribute to your final decision. First, you should compare your house to others that are in the market. The CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) will reflect the following:

  • houses in your price range and area that were sold within the last half-year
  • asking and selling prices of houses
  • current inventory of houses on the market
  • features of each house on the market

From the CMA, you will learn the difference between the asking price and selling price for all homes sold, the condition of the market, and other houses comparable to yours.

Also, try to find out what types of houses are selling and see if it applies to your area. Buyers follow trends, and these trends can help you set your price.

Always be realistic. Understand and set your price to reflect the current market situation

  1. Develop a marketing plan

Your home must have the right exposure to homebuyers and investors, both nationally and internationally.

Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.

Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.

Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.

Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.

Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.

Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.

  1. Ensure a great presentation

Professional photographs and well-written descriptions are a must. Your home’s best features, including a great location and nearby attractions, must be properly highlighted to catch the attention of the right buyers. Creativity plays an important role in the presentation of homes, and it’s something I consider as one of my strengths as a Realtor.
