Selling a San Ramon Valley home in the 21st Century is a very different proposition than it used to be if you want to net the best return. Most homes that are listed for sale in our area are in close to move-in condition and many are professionally staged.
Given that these homes are your competition, it obviously makes sense to do everything you can to prepare your home so that it looks its best when it comes on to the market. Depending on its existing condition and upgrades etc., this could simply be a question of decluttering and cleaning before any staging is carried out, although in most cases, it will take a little more than that. Paint and carpet are relatively low-cost improvements, for example, and will almost always more than pay for themselves when the home is sold.
For much more detailed advice and recommendations on preparing your home for sale, you should get your copy of our free East Bay Home Sellers Guide, pictured on this page – “450 Ideas To Help Your Home Sell Faster”. Here you will find a wealth of information and suggestions for no-cost or low-cost things you can do to improve your home’s value. Even if you don’t plan to sell your home for a while, this is an excellent resource for ideas to make your home more pleasant to live in. This is no small brochure. There are 52 pages of content covering every room in the home as well as the outside and even the garage. If you would like a copy, please enter your details below and press the submit button.
