Don't Be Afraid to Sell Your Palo Alto Home Even if It Is Different

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California Silicon Valley Probate, Trust, and Investment Sales B.R.E. 01191194

A few weeks ago I spent some time at my aunt and uncles house in Great Falls, Virginia. It is a beautiful place, that reminds me a little of Portola Valley or West Atherton. Big lots, big houses, rolling hills. Most of the homes in Great Falls are traditional. That is they have brick exteriors, but also the insides have a lot of rooms and do not have the open kitchen family rooms or walls of windows. The kitchens, family rooms, and living rooms are all separate and very distinct rooms.

When my aunt designed their house 7 years ago she wanted fewer bedrooms (only 4 in 7000 square feet) but an open feeling, and came up with a floor plan that looks very much like the homes being built today in and around Palo Alto. As a Palo Alto resident and REAL ESTATE AGENT I feel very much at home in their house.

So, I was very shocked when they said that they knew that since their house was so different from the other homes in Great Falls they would have trouble selling it. Well, as a PALO ALTO REAL EASTATE AGENT of course I know better. People come here from all over the country as well as the world and universally they almost all say the same thing.

I WANT OPEN SPACES! So, I know that the same demographic of buyers on the other side of the country wants my aunt and uncle's floor plan.

Ok, so why am I wasting your time talking about a home 3000 miles away? There actually is a point. If you are worried about selling your home because it is not like all the other homes in Palo Alto, don't be. 

1. You may be surprised that your home is actually appealing to home buyers even if you think it has a fatal flaw or 2.

2. The inventory is still so low buyers are willing to compromise on many issues just to get a home in our great town and are often willing to spend the time and money to make the changes they want.

So, if you have any questions about buying or selling a home in Palo Alto please feel free to contact me.
