Real Estate Pros Host Workshop for Fixer-Uppers

Moxie Realty Group LLC hosts “So . . . You Want to Buy a Fixer” at TreeHouse

On Thursday, May 28, Moxie Realty Group LLC, along with co-hosts TreeHouse, Austin Title, and Austin Inspection Services bring you an evening of the truth about what to expect when you buy a property and fix it up.

This is the second time this year Moxie has worked to provide a great forum for learning about the pitfalls, plateaus, and pinnacles of fixing up a property. From finding a property, to getting financing, to getting the work done—this candid group of professionals, including a renovation financing expert, will provide information and answer questions about what it takes.

Justine Smith and Mishell Kneeland, also known as the Moxie Ladies, have both been involved in extensive renovations projects—Justine was even featured on an episode of Flip That House for moving a home from South to East Austin—and will share their different perspectives on renovation tolerance. “I was lucky,” Kneeland says, “I only had to please myself. Justine and her husband had to agree on what to do, and had to do it while keeping toddlers out of wet paint!”

The renovation loan specialist will share important financial considerations and timelines. Whether you want to buy a fixer for your own home, or as an investment, there is a renovation product available for you.

One of the great things about fixing up a home is that you can make some truly eco-friendly decisions, and have a chance to put your own stamp on your home. There is nothing like having the freedom—whether your style is minimalist or over-the-top. Kneeland’s home “office,” which she calls her “Chinese jewel box,” features red lacquered cabinets and a black chandelier she brought back from a trip to Amsterdam and beautiful light fixtures she shipped from a trip to Marrakech.

Come for the refreshments and door prizes and leave with your own renovation plan. Come early and browse the wonderful products available at TreeHouse

Traditional Selling Methods No Longer Work for Austin Real Estate

Homes in Austin, TX are still selling but traditional methods no longer suffice.  Realtors and sellers alike now need to spend a lot more time preparing and marketing the home to attract the largest buyer pool possible.

Traditional Selling Methods No Longer Work for Austin Real Estate

Austin Real Estate Group AustinRealtyConsultants.com of JB Goodwin Realtors prove new systematic approach to selling homes in Austin.

Gayle and Jack had a home in Sun City (North of Austin) that was listed with a “Sun City Expert” for 1 year prior to meeting Farrah and Robert Guice.  Needless to say, their home did not sell and when their listing expired with the other realtor they immediately hired Farrah and Robert from AustinRealtyConsultants.com to market their property.

The Guices advised for pricing to be slightly tweaked based on historic and projected market trends, made a few low cost high-impact changes to their home in conjunction with targeted marketing and received an offer 2 weeks after listing the home.

Everyone was a pleasure to work with and all sides were extremely happy with the outcome.

Here is what Gayle and Jack had to say about their experience selling their home with Farrah and Robert:

Farrah and Robert,

Miracles of miracles!  EVERYONE – sellers, buyers, buyer’s realtor, title company – all enjoyed working with you both and had nothing but good things to say.

As much as we miss Stefan and Martha, we are thrilled they found you and shared [you] with us [before they moved away].  We too, will be recommending you.

Gayle & Jack
Austin, TX – Avery Ranch

Farrah and Robert can’t promise to sell your home in 2 weeks but can promise to utilize proven strategies/systems to price, prepare and market your home.  Remember, promises don’t sell homes, processes do.  The process used by AustinRealtyConsultants.com consistently allows their clients to sell their home for the maximum value in the quickest amount of time.

Kenn Renner Austin Real Estate Agent Markets First Custom Home Since Joining Keller’s Luxury Homes Division

Standing in the opulent outdoor living area of his new estate listing at 63 Tree Haven Court (www.63TreeHaven.com) on the 11th fairway of the prestigious “The Hills” Golf Course in Lakeway, Texas – Kenn exclaims, “Not long ago, we saw Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw play through.” Kenn, who recently moved to the Lake Travis area and joined top ranked Keller Williams Realty, was visibly enthused. “I am just so excited to focus my marketing expertise on this fine property. This custom home shows really well and it is priced under market for a quick sale.” The owners of the home are custom homebuilders and know how fast Kenn can move a property. “He sold our last home in just five days, which is remarkable in this market!” mentions Jerry Horne, owner of Horne Brothers Custom Homes referring to the recent sale of his custom built home at 8032 Riviera Estates (www.8032rivieraestates.com) above Lake Travis. “Kenn has a huge web presence in the Austin area and that was how we found him.”

Kenn combines tried and true marketing such as print & direct mail with state of the art strategies such as Internet syndication and video promotion to place his clients home at the forefront of home seekers. “Over 87% of home buyers start their search on the web. So we focus on search engine optimization and lead capture. Last month, I had over 16,000 homes searched on my website’s search engine” said Kenn, referring to his popular website www.BuyAustin.com. Kenn Also utilizes video in his marketing. He continues, “A key component is our video marketing. We produce high quality videos of our properties and then syndicate them over the Internet on YouTube and other video portals.” The use of video strategy bodes well in his luxury homes marketing. “The homes show so well on video,” he adds. Kenn gained hands on experience in his many appearances on the popular HGTV show “House Hunters.” “In these tougher economic times, agents need every marketing advantage possible to capture buyers’ interest – and that is our goal – attract, captivate, and convert to sale.”

Another unique marketing angle that he implements is the use of individual customized stand-alone website for each of his listings using the address of the property as the URL for example: www.63TreeHaven.com. “Luxury home sellers and buyers appreciate exclusivity, this is why I create a website unique to the property – that way it is showcased without the distraction of a lot of other properties and non- related information. We also add special features like an interactive three dimensional virtual floor plan that allows home buyers to place and move with their mouse – pretty cool stuff!”

Kenn recently joined the exclusive luxury homes division at Keller Williams Lake Travis Market Center. “I am honored to be a part of Austin’s #1 real estate company and their dominate luxury homes presence.”
