Keep Austin Weird Homes Sells a Home Previously On the Market for 100 Days in Just 13 Days…For More Money!!!

We were contacted by a homeowner in a popular Southwest Austin neighborhood who was frustrated that her home had not sold after 100 days on the market with the previous agent. The home was an expired listing from the MLS and she didn’t know what to do next. She had almost given up hope that she could sell at the price she needed to make the sale worthwhile. Furthermore, her family was drained from the disruption of having the home on the market so long. We met, reviewed our professional analysis of the Austin real estate market statistics, and worked in collaboration with the homeowner to create a pricing strategy that made sense.
In this case, we listed the home for MORE than the previous agent had. We found solutions to ease the pressure on the family. Most importantly, we devised a customized, marketing proposal specifically for this home. It takes someone with a lot of experience in properties that didn’t sell the first time they were on the market to figure out how to get the job done – without dropping the price relentlessly. This is something we at Keep Austin Weird Homes specialize in. With over 15 years of real estate experience, we know what to do to sell an expired listing. Within 13 days we successfully negotiated an offer for the property for a Cash Buyer. No repairs were needed. The home sold at 97% of the asking price, which was more than she had expected from the previous agent! This listing faced a great deal of competition from new homes still being built in the community and 3 other homes for sale on the same street. However, our experience with pricing and negotiation strategies combined with our fresh marketing ideas got the job done for our client. Now her expired listing is SOLD and she and her family have moved one happily. If you know someone that could use assistance with buying or selling Austin real estate, we’d appreciate you connecting us with them. We do what we say we will, we get the job done, and we even have fun, too.
