Homebuying Services - Whether you're considering purchasing your first home, moving up, downsizing, or buying investment property, we will provide all the professional expertise necessary to make the transaction a smooth one. We'll not only find you your "dream home," but we will hold your hand from beginning to end and guide you every step of the way.
For most people, choosing a new home is the biggest financial decision they will ever make, and there are many complicated decisions involved. To protect your interests and assure that you make the best possible decisions, it's important that you have an agent on your side who is an expert in the Austin real estate market.
As your agent, our focus is on getting you the best possible home at the best possible price. We will work hard not only in finding you potential new homes to see, but also in keeping you informed of everything that takes place. As your agent and a top expert in the local Austin market, we will negotiate the best prices and terms for you and answer all of your questions as they arise. We will be representing you, not the seller. This assures that our experience and expertise will be used to serve your best interests during the negotiation process.
Listing Your Home for Sale - We’ll get you the most for you house and make the transaction a smooth one at every step of the way....from putting your house on the market, through contract negotiations, inspection period, and closing. Up-to-the-minute data is used in arriving at accurate values through our comparative market analysis system. We look not only at recent history but also at the competition, market size, and recent trends in the market for your area as well as for your particular kind of property. We develop strategies for marketing your property that may differ from the efforts to sell other properties.
Remodeling to sell The key to our marketing strategy is your house itself. To sell it quickly and for the highest price it is necessary for the property to look its very best. We consult with you on ways to upgrade, repair, and spruce-up your house to appeal to the largest number of people and enhance marketability. In the case where a home is in need of basic cosmetic upgrading we will get the work done for you (usually for less cost than you can get it done yourself), and have it on the market within a very short period of time. We coordinate all the services which typically include interior and exterior painting, roofing, flooring, and counter tops. We also get into more extensive remodeling like upgrading to hardwood floors, window replacement, crown molding, etc. to add value when necessary to compete with comparable homes. Most of the cost of these upgrades will come back to you on a $2-for-$1 return, and with an additional savings as your home will no doubt sell quicker.
Moving up? Selling and buying at the same time can be tricky and stressful. We'll consult with you on the best way to do it in order to minimize your anxiety, inconvenience and cost.
