It is easy to feel overwhelmed when selling a house on your own. Between budgeting for advertisment, photography and staging, scheduling showings, arranging open houses, negotiating purchase offers, understanding the language of contract contingencies and completing unfamilar and complicated documents, there is a huge learning curve and plenty of room for mistakes to be made. Instead, put that burden on our professional real estate agents, who have unparalleled experience in marketing homes for the Austin buyer and have expertise highlighting the most sought-after features of your house.
The first step in our process will be to pull the numbers from currently active, pending and sold listings to build a comparable market analysis which will assist in determining a price for your house based on current Austin market conditions and trends. We'll discuss home staging - we use the best home stager in Austin who can provide lots of insight into what would make your home more appealing to a buyer.
