The Austin Short Group

Austin started The Austin Short Group because he saw the value in bringing together the collective talent of each team member to create a community where clients receive a better real estate experience. Often times real estate can involve so many variables and factors that some real estate agents don’t want to accept the full challenge. They would rather be a piece of the home buying puzzle rather than a true guide for the entire process. Our teams motto of Connecting Head, Heart, and Home speaks to a higher level of service. We are committed to you. We provide service that says ‘We are here for you every step of your real estate journey!’

austinshortgroup Hard to boil down something as big and important as buying a home into 5 steps, but here are 5 keys to getting the keys 🔑 to your home 🏠 ! 1. Work with an agent who is working as a full time realtor and is someone you trust! This professional will be your guide to understanding and executing the process. They are your advocate, negotiator, and your most important ally in this process!! 2. Get with a lender who is preferably local. Your realtor can be an excellent resource to helping you partner with the lender who will be able to not only get you an excellent interest rate but can also perform on the loan. Don’t be scared to ask to meet with the individual to have he or she explain their services and products. 3. Now the fun part! Right?! The Search!! Let’s go see some homes, and find the one that fits your needs the best. This can be tough in a competitive market with fewer homes to chose from. I focus on the big 5 elements of a home to make a sound investment. Not sure what those 5 things are? Well let’s talk! 4. Inspection and Appraisal. These can be waived as negotiating terms in certain situations but they can’t be ignored. Inspecting your largest investment and negotiating repairs, along with clearing a third party appraisal, are huge parts of buying a home! And are some of the key negotiating windows during your purchase. 5. Closing and Possession! Same thing right?! Nope! When you close you don’t necessarily get the HGTV moment where the agent hands you the keys across the table after you sign, and you get to move in right away. Often possession is subject to how the contract is written. This too can be a negotiating term to help you stand out. You might sign and then give the seller a few days to move out in order to be a more appealing buyer. And often buyers get possession of their home after it funds. Which means the buyer gets possession after both parties sign and the seller gets their money 💰! So does this cover every step that comes up during home buying experience? Certainly not, and that is why that first key is so vital. Let’s get you home in 2022!
