Intelligent Real Estate Pricing Strategy

Going Beyond the CMA

Most agents simply run a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) and base their list price recommendation solely on this data. While we do strongly take into account CMA data, we go beyond the CMA and take into account market conditions and seasonality. This allows us to determine whether we should price the property with current comparable data or at a higher/lower price. Our Intelligent Pricing Strategy takes into account the following:
  1. Comparative Market Analysis

    How much have similar properties in the same/similar neighborhood recently sold for? What asking prices are comparable properties currently listed at that are both active & under contract? By taking this information into account, we find a price range for your property. Click Here to Learn More
  2. Market Conditions

    After we know the price range for your property, we look at your specific market conditions. We determine the absorption rate in your market, how many months of inventory are currently on the market, & what the average time is to sell. This information tells us whether we should price on the high/low side of the comparable sold properties, or if we should price the property with the sold comps. Click Here to Learn More
  3. Market Seasonality

    We take into account where you are in the selling season. Is the market currently hot or cold? Is it heating up or cooling down? When the market is heating up, we want to price the property on the high side (or above) the sold comps. During peak season, we gravitate towards the most recently sold comparables and price the property with those comps. When the market is slowing down, you want to price your property with or below the most recently sold comparables. Click Here to Learn More
  4. Priorities & Expectations

    When market conditions & seasonality are optimal, we can price the property on the high side (or higher) than the comparables & you can still expect to sell quickly. However, when we have a less than ideal market or when selling during the off season, we will want to take into account your priorities & expectations. Do you need to sell the property quickly or do you care more about getting the highest price possible? These are often competing interests & we need to price the property according to your situation.
By taking into account more than simple CMA data, we are able to price your property competitively, help you get the most your property, & set reasonable expectations prior to listing.

We recently sold our home out of Lago Vista with Will Mackintosh as our realtor. As everyone’s situation is unique ours was no exception. We spoke with 4 plus other realtors throughout the Austin area and none of them wanted to list at our price we believed to be competitive. Will was pragmatic with his approach and agreed our price was aggressive but not impossible and he was excited to win over our listing. The whole Bramlet team helped greatly to ensure we put our best foot forward in the sale of our home. We ended up getting what we asked for and the transaction went smooth with no major issues. We are very impressed and happy with our experience and highly recommend Will and Bramlet Residential.

It was so easy and great to work with Tara McGuire. She was helpful from the moment we began looking into the sale of our home with her incredible knowledge of the market. She was bullish on pricing, but not unrealistic and we got well over asking. We couldn’t be happier!

Tara McGuire helped us sell a truly unique property with a unique situation involving my elderly father. She took special care to take my dad’s needs into consideration, thoroughly screening and qualifying potential buyers as to not cause too much disruption to his daily schedule. She also did her homework to price our unique property and worked to get us the price we were looking for. She listened, offered frank counsel, and proved that her experience and skill were equal to the task. In the end, she negotiated hard for us and we had very successful outcome.

We were fortunate to find Tara McGuire from Bramlett Residential as our realtor.  A friend who had a great experience with Bramlett Residential introduced us to this real estate firm and the owner referred us to Tara who is one of their experienced realtors.  We were thankful that Tara was able to expertly and safely guide us through the processes of selling our home of 25 years in the volatile Austin market during the extra difficult times of Covid. She laid out a written day-by-day plan, outlining all of the critical checkpoints and events that were required leading up to a successful closing. She leveraged her team who followed up regularly to help us with all of the paperwork and handle all of the details. We were never out of the loop on the status of our sale, and when we had questions or concerns, Tara was quick to respond. In the end, the house listed on a Thursday, the final offers were in on Monday, and we accepted an offer on Tuesday.  Our expectations were exceeded, not only with the level of service we received but with the final price we accepted. When we closed, she was in regular contact with us, expertly handling all of the hiccups. Working with Tara was amazing and we highly recommend her and her team at Bramlett.

I MUST shout to the world that this is the BEST REAL ESTATE company to ever go through. I thought that selling my house would be stressful but Bailey Moran from Bramlett Residential  made it literally SO easy that I never had to lift a finger or even think about what the next step was. The entire crew Bailey, Felix, Stephen, Brianna (especially Bailey Moran!!!!), were constantly there for ANYTHING that I needed, which includes questions, concerns, information, etc. Anytime that I had a question, I literally got a response in less than an hour no matter what time of day or night with a full amount of information. Everyone on the team was so kind to explain the entire process to me (I had no idea how the process went or what I was doing but they ensured I knew EVERYTHING). I would receive “heads up” emails about what was going to happen within the next upcoming days and weeks. DocuSign and Notarize online were very helpful apps that we used and I got everything done from when I was overseas and far away. When I sold my house, I got the full amount the very same closing day within minutes. I could not have ever found a better company, these guys EXCEEDED my expectations to the max. Thank you so much Bailey Moran!!! You are truly the BEST

First time seller here. I am currently overseas and due to Covid restrictions I was unable to be in the states. I was uncomfortable on the subject of selling my 1st home. I found Bailey Moran online and sent an email. Once she and I spoke on the phone I felt a lot better and I believed I was in good hands. The whole experience was so streamlined and there was no headaches. I still can’t believe my home was sold so fast with such little work on my behalf. Bailey and her team were so friendly, responsive, and HELPFUL! I would recommend her to anyone and if I was in the market again in Texas , I would go right back to her!

Ryan I.

Work with Craig in the past and most recently worked again with Tara McGuire and she was phenomenal sold her house within three days she’s very quick efficient and polite and courteous and gets the job done at a high-level. Will definitely come back to her again for any real estate needs!

Aleksandra S.

This was our first time selling a home, and Ashley made it a breeze! We had complete trust in her understanding of the market and the appropriate terms/ contingencies that were necessary. We loved how responsive she was to all of our questions, and she and her team are absolute pros. Would highly recommend working with Ashley if you have the opportunity too!

Susan J.

Ashley Vavasour did an awesome job helping us with the sale of our home! She kept us informed during every step of the process and was always available to answer our questions or hold our hand. She even retrieved my favorite spatulas that I had left behind! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to list their house.

We interviewed three different realtors and were impressed immediately with Will Macintosh.  He included our input into listing price, time line for listing, and detailed the services clearly.  The whole Bramlett team was was prompt in getting forms to us, and clear in terms of expectations.  The stager was great.  The pictures were great.  The house got multiple offers on the first weekend, sold at $55,000 above list price, and closed in 30 days.  Great experience.  I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

I just had a fantastic experience selling my house. Bailey Moran was my agent and she was just WONDERFUL.  I think it’s easy for a professional to be wonderful when everything goes as planned but it is far more telling how excellent they are when things go wrong.  First of all, I am a first time home seller and was completely unfamiliar with the process.  Bailey did much more than answering my questions, because I didn’t even know what questions to ask.  She provided such thorough information in our initial consult I felt like I had an excellent grasp on the process.  She provided a stager…free of charge!…who came out and gave me a complete plan on what to do to prepare my house for showings.  I followed their suggestions and the offers I got on my home were staggering…so much more than I had hoped.  Here’s where things went wrong and Bailey really showed what a fantastic agent does.  My home went under contract right when we had a huge winter storm here in Texas.  I’m a nurse and I ended up being stuck at my hospital four days straight.  When I was finally able to get back home I found my pipes had burst and the house was flooded.  I really couldn’t imagine a worse thing to have happened.  The floors, baseboards and all the doors had to be torn out.  There were over 30,000 claims in Austin alone, so there was a huge wait for plumbers, contractors etc…and I was supposed to be closing in two weeks!  Bailey worked magic with the buyers, their realtor and even the mitigation team that dried and repaired my house… she got them to create new contracts to transfer warranties to the new buyers, she checked in with me regularly to make sure *I* was doing okay, because she knew how stressed I was.  She was so reassuring and…she just handled everything.  She got the closing postponed and when I finally got the repairs completed the closing went off without a hitch.  She made what should have been an incredibly stressful experience SOOOO much better!  I feel incredibly lucky she was my agent.

And did I mention the actual sales process was so easy and she got FAR FAR more for my house than I would have ever expected?  I did, but it’s worth repeating.  My house was only on the market for one weekend.  She is simply the best.
