Three Reasons Homeowners Are Selling in Austin

Today, we want to talk about the three most common reasons Austin homeowners are selling their homes.

For most sellers, it’s an issue of space. Either your family is growing and you need to upgrade to a larger home or the kids are leaving for college and you need less space. Either way, space is a common motivator for home sellers.

Location is another big factor. As the city grows and traffic gets worse and worse, it’s becoming more and more important to live closer to your job. A lot of our clients don’t want to sit in traffic as long, so they want to live closer to where they work to avoid such a long commute every day. They are also looking to be in certain school districts.

Finally, many homeowners are taking advantage of their investment. Austin is seeing a tremendous amount of appreciation, averaging $25,000 across the board. The equity you’ve built in your home means it would be a smart financial decision to capitalize on Austin’s hot market, especially as we approach summer, which is peak selling time.
