  If you are a Personal Representative for a Mountain View Probate Sale I am sure you are overwhelmed with all of your responsibilities. It is not an easy job! You may be charged with selling a home or condo in Mountain View in Probate. If so, this a a great time to be doing that. However, even in a strong seller's market, you have to do whatever you can to get the best offer for the Mountain View Ca Probate estate. One of the most important things you can do right now is to get the Mountain View probate home fully inspected before you put it on the market. It may seem as if you are spending money on inspections that could be spent by the potential buyer. After all, the buyer of the Mountain View Probate home you are selling has to buy it "As -Is" so the estate will not be making any r...

When selling a condo in Mountain View I don't believe there is such a thing as too many fresh flowers, especially in the spring time. I will concede that it is probably better not to have the home look like a funeral parlor, but short of that, nothing makes a Mountain View condo for sale more appealing than fresh flowers. Home buying may be the biggest financial investment a person makes in his/her lifetime, but it is still ultimately an emotional decision. Walnut floors and quartz counter tops may be on a buyer's wish list, but the impact of coming into a home with fresh flowers is as the saying goes, "Like a breath of fresh air." Flowers never fail to give the buyer that over joyed feeling so important for a first impression. There is a reason that people give flowers on Valentine's ...

Silicon Valley's  (Dangerous?) Real Estate Market Trend Fact #1 A listing I had in Old Mountain View CA closed escrow last Thursday.  We got eight offers, all of them over list price.  That's not unusual in Mountain View or in many other cities in Silicon Valley or throughout the country.  What was unusual was none of the eight offers contained a single contingency.  There were no inspection contingencies, no financing contingencies and no appraisal contingencies in any of the offers.  I've never seen or heard of that since 1976 when I began selling real estate. I should mention that pre-listing inspections (termite, general property and sometimes roof) are the norm in Silicon Valley.  And buyers have at least 20% cash down payments and often much more.  The offer we accepted on my Old ...

If you need to, or want to sell your condo in Mountain View you should hire a Mountain View Real Estate Agent. Yes, you could probably put a piece of cardboard on your front lawn saying "For Sale" and get 10 offers, but this is a complicated transaction, and finding a buyer is just one part of a very large undertaking.  So I will make the assumption that you have already decided it is in your best financial and peace of mind interest to hire a Mountain View Real Estate Agent and will give you some ideas on what you should consider. Mountain View has no shortage of good Real Estate Agents, so you have plenty from which to choose. I always say that being in a relationship with a Mountain View Real Estate Agent is like being married, just for a shorter period of time than most marriages. (...
