Experience and marketing resources are only a portion of the elements necessary to achieve success. Other important fundamentals include attaining timely and accurate property information, market statistics, and availability reports that will be interpreted properly by your Austin REALTOR®.
Responsiveness and timing can make or break a real estate transaction; therefore it is imperative that your real estate professional is accessible, outstanding with follow-up, and a diligent communicator. Only the best real estate professionals provide reliable information and recommendations as well as contractor referrals and coordination while being sure to invest heavily in marketing their client’s property for maximum exposure.
Another important element to consider when choosing a real estate professional is their negotiating knowledge and strategy, which will most certainly offer a competitive advantage to the better prepared party to the transaction.
- Marketing: Excellent Photos. Staging consultation. Professional flyers and e-flyers. Clear messaging. Timely delivery of that message.
- Networks: We have deep networks with the REALTOR community. We are not talking about an e-flyer service where much of the REALTOR community opts out of receiving those emails. We have been building authentic connections with the most productive REALTORS in Austin for years. These are REALTORS who want to see our inventory before it hits the market. We also market our listings to the thousands of buyers in our database who found us searching for homes on searchaustinhomes.com.
- Momentum: Once a home is show ready we create buzz about a listing by informing our networks about the pending listing. The best chance for an offer is within the first 1-10 days so we funnel as many buyers through the house just before and after it hits the market. When buyers see a desirable home and they see other buyers at the home it creates a sense of urgency that fosters successful sales opportunity.
- Experience: Our agents at Regent have the benefit of experience to minimize unnecessary mistakes. Getting an offer is a win, but converting it to a closed sale requires knowledge and strategy. We know what is customary in a transaction in Austin TX. We understand the importance of communication. We focus on building authentic relationships with other agents, which fosters cooperation in getting to a sale. We know sales and negotiating strategies that work. We help guide our sellers through the entire process. See some of our solds here.
Home Staging is the process of improving a home to be offered for sale, in order to maximize its value. Various surveys have concluded that staged homes sell more quickly and for a higher price than those that are not. All else equal, it is understandable that a buyer would choose to purchase a home that has been staged versus one that is not. In a competitive marketplace it is important to have the upper hand, therefore we strongly recommend home staging as a standard practice for our clients.
In order to make the home appeal to the greatest audience, it is important to neutralize colors, and make each room in the home look as spacious as possible, while creating a safe and warm atmosphere. Improvements may include grooming and landscaping the yard, removing clutter from in and around the home, cleaning the interior and exterior of the home, and adding, rearranging or removing furniture in order to improve the visual and functional appeal of the home. Other home staging improvements are to increase lighting and ventilation, remove and/or improve smells, and/or add visually appealing home decorations.
