Selling San Jose Studio Condo

The San Jose real estate market is booming. Inventory has never been lower. Everything is getting multiple offers. Buyers are out in droves. But for some types of properties there is still the fear on the part of the sellers that they will have trouble selling.

Studio condos are in that class of traditionally hard to sell homes. If you own a studio condo in San Jose and are thinking of selling, do not hesitate.

Small is in. The size of your home is now not as important as it was in the past. This trend is already very popular in San Francisco so San Jose is never far behind.

The potential occupant of a studio condo in San Jose would be a young busy tech professional, city or county worker on a budget, or even a young doctor or post doc student. The buyer of a San Jose studio condo could be any of the above, parent of any of the above, or investor looking for a rental property.

Young professional buyers and renters are very busy. They spend so little time at home there is not a need for a huge living space. Tech companies often provide meals on site and many young foodies love to buy from food trucks or local restaurants. Huge kitchens are not a necessity for them.  Easy access to transportation, entertainment, and coffee shops is. 

As buying a home becomes more and more expensive buying a small San Joae studio condo is a more reasonable option than a larger 1 or 2 bedroom condo.

So if you have a San Jose studio condo you would like to sell, now is the time. When I list San Jose studio condos for sale I like to have the home cleared out. Then I stage it with Ikea furniture designed specifically for one room spaces. The bed should wither be elevated, or be able to convert to a sofa. Tables should fold, and there should be plenty of shelving on the wall.  The San Jose studio condo should be staged to be move in ready, and then the whole set up can be sold to the new buyer if they want. If not, I pack it up and stage my next San Jose studio condo with it.

If you have any questions about selling a studio condo in San Jose please feel free to contact me.

Marcy, you're right.  This is an excellent time to sell a studio condo in San Jose or anywhere in Silicon Valley, for that matter.  Demand is high among the groups you mention and supply is low.  Prices and demographics change markets.  In 1976 agents didn't want 2 bedroom single family residence listings because they didn't sell; buyers wanted 3+ bedrooms.  But rising prices and smaller families changed that.  Same with studio condos nowadays.

Thaks Lloyd. I remember when 2 bedroom homes were hard to sell. Also condos were harder to sell in the past as well. Now it seems that new condos are even more popular than older single family homes.
