Palo Alto is a wonderful place to live, and not just because the schools are so good. Many of today's buyers are trying to buy a home in Palo Alto because of the schools, but if they knew about some of the other wonderful aspects of Palo Alto they may be even more motivated to purchase your home.
When selling your Palo Alto home I would suggest that you leave information about some of our community treasures like the Palo Alto Children's Theatre, the California Ave and downtown Farmer's Market, the 4th of July Chilli Cook-Off, Stanford Theatre, Stanford Shopping Center, Theatre Works, soccer and t-ball teams, the Children's library, the Children's Zoo, local restaurants, or our incredible parks.
Even if leaving this information for potential buyers does not change their offer, it may make them even happier about their decison to buy the Palo Alto home you are selling, and a happy buyer is the best kind.
So when you sell your home in Palo Alto in addition to the standard disclosures, I suggest you add some information about local events and institutions, along with API scores, to show the potential buyers they will be getting much more than just a home.
