The Daly City 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 Daly City 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 Daly City is never far behind.
The potential occupant of a studio condo in Daly City 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 Daly City 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 Daly City studio condo is a more reasonable option than a larger 1 or 2 bedroom condo.
So if you have a Daly City studio condo you would like to sell, now is the time. When I list Daly City 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 Daly City 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 Daly City studio condo with it.
