Friends and Clients --

You’re getting this email because I helped you buy or sell a home here in the greater Austin area, you inquired about real estate, or you’re a friend or family member.

Thank you for opening this!

I want to let you know the Austin real estate market is the most active I’ve ever seen. 

This isn’t a 2008-2009 bubble, either – loan standards are high right now. This is true buyer demand.

Last year there were 6,349 active homes for sale here, now there are only 1,310. That’s crazy.

I just helped a buyer secure a 2.9% 30-year loan, too. Interest rates were closer to 18% in the 1980s!

If you are thinking of selling your Austin area home this summer, you will likely get the highest price ever for your home. Just these past 3 months in Travis County, we’ve seen the  average sales price rise 26%!

With this shortage of homes, I have several homebuyers willing to pay “whatever it takes” to get into a bigger home in a desirable location since so many people are working from home.

My phone rings off the hook now. I may be able to arrange an off-market sale so you can skip the strangers walking through your home while still getting full market value - at your price.

Please call me at 512-829-8000 or reply to this email and let me know if you’re thinking of selling your home.

You can also check out what your home may be worth in today’s market on my website.

It will give you a very accurate idea of what your home would sell for based on your neighbors’ recent home sales – I pay a lot of money for this tool and it’s free to you.

You can also search all homes for sale in Austin on my website, too (with photos).

The No. 1 concern I’m hearing from my clients, however, is “Where will I move if I sell now?”

I have the solution to this very problem – few people know about it…

I work with a lender who can likely get you a “bridge loan”.

For a few thousand dollars of interest (well spent), you can get cash upfront to buy your next home now without selling your current home first. Yep, it’s actually possible to sell your house after buying now.

This allows you to make an all-cash offer to beat out every other buyer who is subject to getting a mortgage and skip the hassle of timing your closing dates. 

You simply move into your new home and then we sell your old home – it’s what the super-rich do, but now it’s possible for you.

This is how smart sellers are buying their next home in this hot market. 

You get the certainty of buying the new home you want first and then being able to sell after.

Call me at 512-829-8000 or just reply to this email and I can explain how it works.

With that, I plan on continuing to send you helpful video updates about what’s going on in the Austin real estate market.

If you have any questions, let me know and I’ll answer them!

Thanks for reading this.

If you’re thinking about selling your home this summer, please let me know – I can point you in the right direction of what you need to do now to make sure that it’s a painless experience and you sell your home for the highest possible price.

I know exactly what buyers are looking for - and with a few cheap improvements now - we can likely add thousands of dollars to your sales price.

Stay in touch. Things are looking up after a crazy year.

I'm here to help if you need me,

Chris Watters
