Does the process of selling and buying at the same time seem daunting?
We've helped hundreds of families achieve this goal.

Not being able to afford a new home without selling your current home is a problem we see over and over in Austin. With higher competition amongst buyers in Austin, most families are overwhelmed with this process and don't know how to coordinate or maneuver both selling and buying at the same time.
The good news is you don't have to feel burdened in this process because we have a proven solution to helping you.
The first step in this process is determining the home you want to buy, even before you try to sell your existing home.
A proper marketing plan on your existing home ensure that you receive a good offer(s) to be able to entice the seller of the home you are wanting to buy to accept an offer that is contingent on the sale of your existing home. You need strong terms in order to achieve this. A seller is not going to accept any offer. They want to feel confident that the deal is going to go through and you can only achieve those terms with great marketing and subsequent negotiations on the home you're selling...which is where we come in.
The next step in this process is to prepare your home for the market. Matt and I go over this step in detail in the video contained in this section.
Making the trade-off to a bigger, more expensive home doesn't mean that you have to sell your home for less. Our sell/buy process is designed to sell your home for the most money while allowing you to buy the home of your dreams at the best possible price. We know how to coordinate this efficiently and effectively.
Now that we've gone through the steps to prepare your home, the next step in the process is listing it on the market and the best practices that lead to multiple offer situations!!
Because marketing the home properly not only lends itself to getting the most money in the least time but it also allows us to negotiate the best terms for you. When you're selling and buying a home, you really need to have the very best contract terms on your contract to not only give you peace of mind to feel comfortable with the second transaction but also the listing agent on the home that you're buying. Remember when we ask the question about why experience matters? It also matters to the listing agent that we're going to send the offer to on the home you're buying. When you're submitting an offer on a listing that is contingent on the sale of another home, that listing agent is going to want rock-solid terms. Marketing helps get those terms because we often attract multiple offers.
This is the trickiest part of the process. You need a great offer on your existing home so you can get a seller to take your offer on the home that you want to buy. Crucial steps that we go over in detail in this segment.
We understand what you're going through. Having this much experience under our belts has allowed us to design programs for any situation that is thrown our way. When common problems arise, such as buying and selling at the same time, we can tailor our solution to meet your needs and do what's best for you. For instance, we know how to negotiate a proper leaseback and how to make a backup plan in case the leaseback isn't accepted. We've done so much with so many families that we line out all the variables to help you achieve your goals.

I just completed the sale of my Austin home with Ryan and Sunny and have nothing but praise for them both. They took on the listing in the middle of the holiday season (late November), but even so they were efficient and effective with both communication and execution. Ryan immediately reached out to his network of contacts and without even utilizing the MLS we had multiple offers in the first week. They provided expert guidance in selecting the right offer and made the entire process a breeze. If you're selling or buying a home in Austin you'll be doing yourself a service by working with Spyglass.
Incidentally, in the two years prior to selling my property I had contacted Ryan a number of times to ask questions and run sales comps for me - he was always gracious and eager to help!
As first time home buyers, my husband and I didn't know what to expect. Additionally, when we started looking for houses we were 7 months pregnant and really wanted to be into a house before the baby came. We worked with Lauren Yoder, and had an amazing experience. She listened to what wanted and found several houses that fit our criteria. She and Ryan did a great job walking us through every step of the process and offering their advice. Lauren was always quick to answer calls and went out of her way to meet up with us whenever we needed to talk. A super complicated process suddenly became much less daunting with Lauren's help. We were able to get an amazing house, with a room for our newborn, and a guest bedroom. We would highly recommend Spyglass Realty, and in particular Lauren Yoder!
Ryan and the entire Spyglass team have bent over backwards to provide excellent real estate service. Every time that I have a client moving to Austin, this is my very first phone call. Just the other week, they helped get over asking price on a property and then went found that same client an amazing trade up property. Everyone on the team is super helpful and will definitely be back again.
