Do you want to make your home listing stand out to buyers?  Home buyers consider hundreds of factors before making the decision to buy. These typically include the location of the house, the interior features, the size of the lot, the school district, and the nearby amenities. This is perfectly understandable since buying a home is much more than just making a purchase, it’s a major investment. Buyers in the market for Pleasanton CA real estate are just trying to get the most bang for their buck.   Every home buyer has a unique set of wants for a house. However, they know that they will never find a home that ticks off everything in their wish-list, so they’re willing to settle for a house that grants most of their wishes. If you want to get ahead of the competition, you need to be awar...

This is Doug Buenz with the 680 Homes Video Channel. Today we’re going to talk about a mistake that sellers should avoid. That is hiring an agent simply because they’re nice or they’re your friend. Look, your home is arguably one of the largest financial assets you have and selling this property is a very serious financial decision. Just because an agent is nice or drops by brownie recipes or pumpkins at Halloween does not qualify them to sell your home. A lot of times, sellers will choose to hire a friend, not because of the qualifications but because it’s a friend. The big problem with that scenario is that sometimes friends won’t tell you what you need to hear as a seller. They’re afraid to offend you. They don’t want to damage the friendship. They want you to like them so they’ll av...
