How do you sell your home at Mueller?The second attempt is under way right now. The first resale ended up leasing their home recently, after 37 days on the market. And now the second resale home is available.
I’m a little surprised by the listing for a number of reasons – there are no photos of it, and no sign is on the street.
Given the challenges of competing with the builders when selling a home in a development under construction, pricing and marketing are critical. Right now there are no photos of the home in the Austin Multiple Listing System. The one below I snapped while walking this morning.
There is no sign letting neighbors know it is for sale. (or the predicted 20,000-80,000 people coming to Mueller for the 2009 Austin Parade of Homes starting this week) I think this is a pretty good time to sell your home at Mueller – builder inventory is low, thousands of people are coming to the area, and there are few choices for people who want to move right away. To buy it, they have to be able to see it and they have to know about it!
One person who does know it is for sale is Hilary Herrin. I was at the Streetman home preview last night, getting ready for the Austin 2009 Parade of Homes at Mueller, and I caught up with another active Realtor who lives here – Hilary. I mention this not to name drop, but to make a point.
Hilary also focuses on Mueller, and has a deep knowledge of prices, buyers and floorplans here. She holds open houses here, lives here, and like me, she works here. We work with home buyers here at Mueller, and have a good grounding in the local market.
She would be a good person to interview if you were looking to sell your home at Mueller. I think I would be too. We’d work pretty hard to get your home sold.
That’s the end of my rant about “horses for courses”. Here’s the home:
The David Weekley home is only a block and a half from the pool at Ella Wooten.
4105 Scales St, Austin TX, 78723
- 3 Beds, 2 Baths
- Single Story
- 1437 sqft
- Austin ISD (Maplewood Kealing McCallum)
- MLS# 5917323
- Built in 2008
I haven’t looked inside this home yet, and all the listing says is that it has “many upgrades”.
Compare that with the builders who have model homes, fliers, staged furniture and people on-site to answer questions. It’s not hard to see who has mindshare of future Mueller residents.
