I have spent some time in Western Austin.  From West Lake Hills, all the way up to Milwood.  I have to say overall, I am a little disappointed some listing agents and owners aren’t preparing a home as well as they could for sale.  Basic things like replacing the carpeting, touching up nail holes….how about vacuuming?  When you sell your home, it should shine.  If ’shine’ is too much to ask for…how about clean enough for company.  You are going to have company when selling your home. I am calling them company, but they also happen to be your harshest critics.

My top 2 goals as a listing agent, are to sell your home in the shortest amount of time, for the most money possible.  When I’m listing a home, I don’t really care how many homes are on the market.  I just want my listing to shine, so it’s the next one to sell.

Now, I’m not telling you to install $30,000 in granite.  All I am saying is make that Formica the best it can be!
