Every Home Tells a Story - Let Us Share Yours

Many real estate agents take the one-size-fits-all approach to selling their client's homes. They follow the same cookie-cutter procedures to list each home, then they sit back and wait for offers. That's not us. We wouldn't dream of using the same strategy for every home we list, and we've achieved unbelievable success by taking a different approach. We know your home is unique, and we are ready to partner with you to develop the most effective, customized marketing program to ensure you get the best possible price. We believe each home must be assessed thoroughly -- from defining its distinct location and features to identifying potential target buyers. We also make recommendations for repairs and improvements that will maximize your final selling price. History has proven that our methods generate results. This book will give you an overview of our process.

Once you've made the leap and decide to list your home, we will be there to guide you every step of the way, and are always within phone's reach if you need anything at all. We look forward to sitting with you at the closing table.

Working with Schmitz & Smith Group

At Schmitz and Smith Group, we know you want top dollar for your property. We also know how to identify your property’s value and position your home to fetch the highest offers.Value isn’t determined by what you paid or how much you’d like to get, but by what a buyer is willing to pay in today’s market. Buyers are always looking for the hottest opportunities. The right price can bring multiple offers that drive the price up. A property attracts the most activity in the first two weeks of the listing. Then, newer listings start to overshadow it.

We use real-time data from area home sales to identify the current market value. We price strategically in order to attract interest as soon as your listing hits the market, when it typically has the greatest exposure.

Here's What You Can Expect 

1. We initiate the listing process by entering your property into the Austin area Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system.

2. Buyers' agents schedule property showings, and we diligently collect and analyze their feedback. We promptly report this feedback to you for your consideration.

3. We receive and carefully evaluate offers from potential buyers. We guide you through the process of accepting, countering, or declining offers. If applicable, we negotiate backup contracts.

4. If your property is part of a homeowners' association (HOA), we facilitate the process by delivering the necessary documentation to the title company.

5. For buyers seeking financing, their lender orders an appraisal of the property. If the appraised value differs from our agreed-upon sales price, we engage in negotiations to bridge the gap. This may involve price adjustments or additional cash contributions at closing. If the property does not appraise, the buyer retains the option to terminate the transaction while preserving their earnest money.

6. We ensure that all documentation required by the buyer's lender is submitted and reviewed. Once the lender grants a "clear to close" status, the buyer's financing is secure, or they may face loan denial.

7. We meticulously review the settlement statement, providing you with a detailed breakdown of your net proceeds at the time of closing.

8. Prior to closing, we guide you through the necessary preparations. All sellers are required to attend the closing meeting with valid driver's licenses. Be sure to bring a voided check for wiring instructions, as well as any keys and garage door openers.

9. After a brief waiting period, the transaction officially "funds," signifying the completion of the process.

10. Congratulations! You've successfully navigated the real estate transaction process. It's time to celebrate your achievement.
