Tips For Selling Your Austin Texas Home During A Slow Market

Are you thinking about selling your Austin Texas Home but aren’t sure if it’s going to sell as fast as your neighbors home sold earlier this year? The good news is that you can still sell your home for top dollar, even during a slow market, especially if you follow these tips.

Tip #1 – Make Those Repairs Now

Does your Austin Texas home need some repairs that you’ve been putting off for a while? If so, you shouldn’t hesitate to make those repairs now. Home buyers in 2018-2019 have more inventory to choose from, and you want buyers to have confidence in your home instead of rating it a “fixer-upper”.

Tip #2 – Get Your Home in “Showable” Condition

Is your home actually ready for an open house or to be seen by dozens of potential buyers? If not, you should make sure that your home is in “showable condition” by doing the following:

  • Declutter your home – Remove all of the excess stuff that you haven’t used in the last 6 months to one year.
  • Paint – Painting your home will help it to feel fresh and clean.
  • Update – Remove old window treatments, light fixtures, cabinet hardware and replace with updated pieces that you will love.

Tip #3 – Price It Right

Last of all, but most important, you should always price your home right for where the market is at today, instead of where it was at 12 months ago when some homeowners may have been pricing their homes at far over what they were really worth.
