I was looking at the website for a real estate agent I know in Beverly Hills. He sells homes from $5M to $50M all year long. As you can imagine there are quite a few homes to choose from in that price range in LA. But what about Dripping Springs?
Luxury Real Estate sales in Dripping Springs are much different than what you would find in California. You are more likely to find a well built home on acreage with a barn than you are to find a contemporary architects dream plan built with a helipad and a 2000 bottle wine cellar. A quality luxury home in Dripping Springs might be $1.5M. That same home in L.A. would be $5M. It’s no wonder people are moving to Austin at the rate of 150 people added per day.
Selling Luxury Real Estate in Austin needs to take a different approach. Texans tend to not be as concerned about how a property looks, as you drive up to it, as they are about the lifestyle of the property they live on. An agent in the Hill Country needs to focus on selling the way a property will enhance your life and improve your lifestyle.
When we show our listings we don’t focus on the listing details (square footage, bedrooms, baths etc) we focus on how a property lives. Instead of saying “This is a 600 square foot covered porch.”, I’ll say “Imagine sitting out here on a peaceful morning with a cup of coffee and the paper.”. Or Instead of “This barn has 4 stalls.” I would say “You can keep your horses right here on the property and watch them in the pasture.”
Selling real estate in California is different and the same in many ways. At the end of the day we all sell dreams to people. It’s what makes this job so fun and so rewarding.
