Yes, you read that correctly, the MLS does not account for every property on the market!

Off-market property sales happen more frequently than many people realize. According to the National Association of Realtors, 10% of all sellers find a buyer without listing on the MLS! Sellers most commonly choose to list off-market for privacy reasons, or because they want to test market their home. 

Real estate agents who sell off-market listings must do the legwork and get the word out to find buyers on their own, typically through their network and word of mouth.

In the pursuit of your dreams, youโ€™ve likely thought about all of the ways you need to grow, but have you ever given thought to areas that need to go? There is always something that we need to let go of, whether itโ€™s guilt, regret, expectations, bad habits, or toxic relationships. It is all too common to resist change and hold onto the past often long after it has quit serving us. But growth is a journey, and It's important to leave behind what no longer serves us, and open up space for new, better things to come.

If you're wondering whether or not you should wait until the holidays are over to sell, I've outlined a few reasons why you should consider listing your home now, rather than waiting until next year:

โœ”๏ธ People that are looking at this time of year are usually serious buyers
โœ”๏ธ There is generally much less inventory during this time of year so you have less competition
โœ”๏ธ Homes are very cozy during the holidays
โœ”๏ธ There are always people relocating to the area
โœ”๏ธ Interest rates are still at record lows right now

If you're thinking of selling, send me a message. I would love to grab coffee and discuss how I employ evidence-based marketing strategies to sell your home quickly and efficiently, no matter the time of year.

Although not ideal, putting together a plan for temporary housing is important. Sure, in a perfect world we would find you a house and have you move in the same day as you close on your current home, however that can be quite difficult with our current inventory shortage. Calculate the costs associated with storage units, short-term rent, and moving expenses, and compare to what you will net from selling your home now, at the height of the market. If it still makes sense, it may be time to consider this option.

This is your reminder to stop slacking on doing the work.

There is no secret to success or happiness, except doing the work that needs to be done. Donโ€™t ask permission or apologize for wanting to pursue a meaningful goal โ€” just pursue it. Be confident in your abilities, and clueless to the idea that failure is an option. 
Learn as you go, and fail forward.

The world needs your ideas, your art, and your work. If you are holding back because youโ€™re scared, youโ€™re not letting yourself down โ€” youโ€™re letting us ALL down. Forget about critics and pessimists, and share your intelligent and unique perspectives. Once you do, and the hustle gets in your veins, failure will cease to be relevant.

Here are a few ways that you can make buying & selling work for you and your family, without having to move into short-term housing.

๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฎ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜†- 
In this scenario, you would focus on finding a new home ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ you list your current home. Once you find a home you love, you will submit an offer with a home sale and settlement contingency- which means you will buy the home only if you can successfully sell your existing home.

This is a great tactic if youโ€™re confident that your current home will sell quickly. With this scenario, you can request to extend the closing date of your new home past the typical 30-45 days. This will give you enough time to sell your current home during that timeframe, before moving into the new home.

Also known as a post-settlement occupancy agreement, a rent-back allows sellers to stay in their home until a specified date past closing. After settlement, you (the sellers) would pay rent to the buyer who now owns the home (almost as if they are your new landlord for 30-60 days). This would allow you the time and money to find a new home with no contingencies.

A HELOC allows you to borrow against the equity in your current home. You can use this money as your down payment on the new home, and pay it off once your current home sells.

If you're wondering whether or not you should wait until the holidays are over to sell, I've outlined a few reasons why you should consider listing your home now, rather than waiting until next year: โœ”๏ธ People that are looking at this time of year are usually serious buyers โœ”๏ธ There is generally much less inventory during this time of year so you have less competition โœ”๏ธ Homes are very cozy during the holidays โœ”๏ธ There are always people relocating to the area โœ”๏ธ Interest rates are still at record lows right now If you're thinking of selling, send me a message. I would love to grab coffee and discuss how I employ evidence-based marketing strategies to sell your home quickly and efficiently, no matter the time of year. #realestateagent #realestatetips #realestate #realestatelife #househunting #realtorlifestyle #homebuyingtips #firsttimehomebuyer #realtorlife #homeselling

neuhaus_realty_atx One of the most common questions that I am asked when someone is considering selling their home in our current historical seller's market is "where would I go?" My answer is typically different depending on their unique situation, but I've outlined two ways that you can sell your home at the height of the market and make sure you don't end up homeless! โœ”๏ธ ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด โ€” I get it, no one wants to move twice, or deal with short-term housing, but there are some benefits to being flexible and uncomfortable for a few months. Although not ideal, putting together a plan for temporary housing is important. Sure, in a perfect world we would find you a house and have you move in the same day as you close on your current home, however that can be quite difficult with our current inventory shortage. Calculate the costs associated with storage units, short-term rent, and moving expenses, and compare to what you will net from selling your home now, at the height of the market. If it still makes sense, it may be time to consider this option. โœ”๏ธ ๐—” ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜†๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€ โ€” this is when you sell your home, and then rent it back from the new owners for a period of time. This is an ideal situation if you have to sell first in order to buy a new home. The stiff competition for buyers has lead to many being flexible with settlement dates and leasebacks in order to make their offer stronger. โฃ Selling and buying a home is a huge undertaking, but I am here to help. โฃLetโ€™s connect so that we can discuss your options and how I can help make the process as easy and stress-free as possible, and net you the most money for your house! #realestatetips #realtortips #homebuying #homeselling #mustknowrealtortips #2021homemarket #realtorlife #realtor

neuhaus_realty_atx If youโ€™re in the market to buy a home, or thinking about neighborhoods to put down roots, you should carefully consider the external factors that may affect your propertyโ€™s market value. While there are many factors that influence the market value of a home, proximity to various amenities can significantly impact a home's value and how well it will retain it if the market ever declines. Here are a few local attractions that can help increase property value: โ€ข Proximity to local parks, pools, and public amenities โ€ข Grocery stores and shopping destinations โ€ข Golf courses โ€ข Colleges and Universities ๐˜ž๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ?

There is no secret to success or happiness, except doing the work that needs to be done. Donโ€™t ask permission or apologize for wanting to pursue a meaningful goal โ€” just pursue it. Be confident in your abilities, and clueless to the idea that failure is an option. Learn as you go, and fail forward. The world needs your ideas, your art, and your work. If you are holding back because youโ€™re scared, youโ€™re not letting yourself down โ€” youโ€™re letting us ALL down. Forget about critics and pessimists, and share your intelligent and unique perspectives. Once you do, and the hustle gets in your veins, failure will cease to be relevant. #mondaymotivation

neuhaus_realty_atx Buying a new home at the same time as youโ€™re selling your current home is all about timing โ€” ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต, of course. Here are a few ways that you can make buying & selling work for you and your family, without having to move into short-term housing. ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฎ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜†- In this scenario, you would focus on finding a new home ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ you list your current home. Once you find a home you love, you will submit an offer with a home sale and settlement contingency- which means you will buy the home only if you can successfully sell your existing home. ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด- This is a great tactic if youโ€™re confident that your current home will sell quickly. With this scenario, you can request to extend the closing date of your new home past the typical 30-45 days. This will give you enough time to sell your current home during that timeframe, before moving into the new home. ๐—”๐˜€๐—ธ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜-๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ Also known as a post-settlement occupancy agreement, a rent-back allows sellers to stay in their home until a specified date past closing. After settlement, you (the sellers) would pay rent to the buyer who now owns the home (almost as if they are your new landlord for 30-60 days). This would allow you the time and money to find a new home with no contingencies. ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ฎ ๐—›๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—˜๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† ๐—Ÿ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜ (๐—›๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—–)- A HELOC allows you to borrow against the equity in your current home. You can use this money as your down payment on the new home, and pay it off once your current home sells.

neuhaus_realty_atx Moving takes a ton of time and energy and can be quite stressful. While moving isnโ€™t by any means easy, I've put together a few helpful tricks to help you pack and unpack faster, reduce the overall amount of work involved, and ultimately make the process go smoother than it might have otherwise! โฃ 1. Assemble the first-day basket with disposable plates, cups, and forks so you can eat without your dishes.โฃ Don't forget toilet paper, paper towels, and a few cleaning supplies as well! 2. While your clothes are still hanging in the closet, put them inside a trash bag to make unpacking simpler. 3. Cover both sides of a mattress with a fitted sheet to keep it clean during the move.โฃ 4. Pack books, photos, or other heavy items in wheeled suitcases for easy mobility.โฃ 5. Give each room a different color packing label. 6. Use towels and blankets in place of bubble wrap. โฃ7. Use wine cases to pack your glassware. If you're starting to think about a move of your own, Iโ€™d love to help! Send me a message today.โฃ #movingtips #homeselling #homebuying #realtortips #realestatetips
