Planning and preparation are essential in an active real estate market like Austin. Without proper planning, you’re leaving thousands of dollars on the table. Our dedicated listings specialist will guide you through our proven process. We help sellers craft personalized plans to maximize the value of their homes.
Knowing the strategic improvements that buyers will pay a premium for is just one of things we bring to the table. There are hundreds of variables along the way, and having a team to proactively manage them is essential to getting top dollar. If you need to sell your home as soon as possible and don’t have time or money for a plan, we can still help. Our expert marketing, Austin connections and certified negotiation skills will ensure your home sells for as much as the market will bear.
Thinking about selling? Here are some of key tips for getting your home ready.
Set the stage. Staged homes sell for 7 percent more money on average. We’ve seen experienced stagers get incredible results for our clients. Stagers can use your own furniture or arrange for rental pieces.
Pare down. Way down. Reduce the amount the stuff in your home by 50 to 75 percent. Don’t know what to keep for staging? Our services include a consultation with a professional seller to provide direction.
Have your home pre-inspected. Repair any safety issues and address obvious signs of water damage, leaks or pests. When you work with us, we’ll go over the report together to decide what other actions you should take.
Enhance your curb appeal. You don’t need to hire a landscape architect to get a big bang for your buck. Trim trees (no branches should scrape the roof) and raise those canopies so buyers can see just how great your house is. We’ll readdress landscaping together just before your potential listing date. You should also pressure wash the exterior of your property, along with walkways, decks and driveways, just before putting your house on the market.

I will recommend Lisa to my friends and colleagues not only because of her professional and experience, but because of her great understanding of the Austin market.
