Home is more than a roof over our heads.
It’s the place we go to feel safe. It’s where we shared precious memories with those we love. It is, in a very literal sense, a part of the family.
Letting go of home isn’t easy. For starters, you can’t stop worrying about who will buy it, if they will care for it as much as you do. Then, you have to decide which repairs are worth the investment, and which are nice to have but unnecessary. And finally, there’s the stress of getting it ready for showing, negotiating, and closing!
It takes years to master this process. Keep reading to see how my team of expert Realtors® can help you sell your home in Pleasanton fast!
Keep these things in mind as you prepare your home for sale:
These repairs are a great investment!
Start with the kitchen. It’s one of the first rooms buyers go to. A fresh coat of paint, replacing drab cabinets, adding a touch of color, all these go a long way.
It doesn’t have to be expensive. You can easily think of something to do with whatever budget you have, be it a couple hundred dollars or a few thousand.
The bathrooms are next, especially the master’s bathroom. Check the caulking, the grout, the tiles, the glass, drains, faucets, hard water stains, and everything. These are an indication of the home’s state.
And never forget the exterior! A fresh looking exterior will pull your buyers in the front door.
Take a look at the lawn, the front door, the garage door, the windows, the curb, and also make sure to tidy up your kids’ playthings, too!
Great pictures go a long way these days.
People can make up their minds before even seeing a property in person.
Consider investing in professional photography. These professionals know how to put a home in its best light. They consider the time of day, the season, and everything else in play.
Without fantastic shots, your home for sale could go stale on the market as buyers “swipe left” the moment they see it.
Set the price right
Your home may be the most valuable thing in the world to you, but for others, it’s just a house.
Setting your house way above its real value is probably the number one way to keep it on the market forever. Buyers have access to virtually every home in their desired area through the internet. They can easily tell if your house is priced way above comparable listings.
My team of professional agents can prepare a CMA, or comparative market analysis, for you. This CMA will compare the prices of homes sold that are similar to yours, and also the prices of homes currently for sale.
Doing this right will bring in buyers fast, and before you know it, your home in Ruby Hill Pleasanton will be sold in no time!
And all that’s left is to negotiate. With me on your side, you can rest assured that I will care for your home as much as you do. I want you to get the price you deserve, and I want to get it done as soon as we can so you can move forward with life.
