Staging San Diego homes can increase a buyers interest and get the seller a higher price – faster!
An experienced San Diego real estate agent’s primary concern is taking care of their clients. They will take the time to find out what you and your family want from the sale of your home.
Past sellers have asked me if they should credit the buyer money towards their closing costs instead of completing buyer requested repairs after the home inspection.
Helping to determine what cost-effective repairs are needed is something I offer to all of my clients. Of course, no one is forced to agree to complete the recommended repairs; I simply make the recommendations and the seller client makes the decision.
When sorting through items figure out what to keep instead of what to get rid of. For example if you are sorting out a cabinet remove everything and then only put back what you truly want to keep.
Remember that most buyers are looking at your property with three things in mind: visual appeal; maintenance; and safety. A first impression is based on all areas of the home.
Having open houses doesn’t hurt the sale of a house and, if it’s not very inconvenient for you and your family, you may want to consider it. But, statistically, the sale of a San Diego home as the result of an open house is between 1-3%.
When you receive an offer, ask your agent questions to determine what’s most important to the buyer and see if you can meet that requirement. Then prepare your counter offer. You may want a higher price, but, if you can meet their needs, the transaction can work. Remember the key to a successful sale is to discover a win-win transaction.
Most people wouldn’t buy a used car without first making sure it ran properly, and just like a car, a San Diego home should be inspected by a licensed California Real Estate Inspector.
The property has been scheduled to have the repairs completed and will be placed on the market for over $10,000 more then if it had been sold as is.
