If you are a Spring Texas home seller, you better be ready to compete against new construction homes for buyers. Because in and around the Spring Texas area, buyers have numerous new construction options.
How do you compete?
Better Pricing – New home builders are luring in buyers with huge discounts, financing incentives, flat screen TVs, and furniture gift cards. Now you don’t have to give the buyers your TV to get your house sold. But you need to have it priced right to attract the buyers. They will be comparing your home against others they view and they won’t make offers on over-priced homes.
Excellent Condition – The builders inventory homes are NEW. They do not have worn out carpet, outdated light fixtures, loud paint colors, grout that needs a deep cleaning, or sidewalks that could use power washing. The builders homes sparkle and so should yours.
Set the Stage – Buyers walk into a builders model home and they immediately fall in love with the home. Why? Because it has been Staged. It looks like somebody lives there but nobody in particular.
Gone is all the clutter and the over-sized furniture. Gone are all the personal collections, wall of photos, and college diplomas. In its place are the show towels and delicate soaps, furniture proportionate for the room size, and a splattering of knick knacks that makes the rooms feel homey.
Stage your home to look like a model home so that home buyers come in and immediately fall in love.

Easy to Show – Make it easy for potential buyers to view your home by not requiring a two hour or even an hour’s notice. Buyers don’t have to make an appointment to view new construction homes. If they can’t get into view your home, they will just go view the builders homes.

She took us through the process which we thought was daunting and at times frustrating. With her excellent local knowledge (including the area, the builder, the market, local school and tax system to name a few) and experience with building a new home (each steps that need to happen and what to look out for), we were able to find a place quickly and go through the building process smoothly. With the ability to grasp our needs and interests fairly quickly, Jill demonstrated strong representation of our interests, including negotiations on our behalf and recommending additional steps which builders would not typically do. Jill had a strong focus on customer service, not only being responsive and answering every questions in detail, but also proactively go extra miles to help us at every step along the way, including alerting us the things we need to do and watch for, helping us out in the design selection process (which very few agents would do) , walking us through the paper works and highlighting issues. It was our pleasure to know Jill and work with her in our new chapter of life. We are very happy with her excellent work and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. read less
