The quote “Everything has a price” may well be talking directly about your home.  These days, any home upgrades, even minor renovations, cost something. Therefore, it is only fair when you put your Pleasanton home up for sale, the upgrades should also be considered. When you are selling your home and you want to increase its value, you may consider getting renovations.   But before you start planning home renovations, there are three important principles you have to remember.  Choose the right upgrade. Anything and everything that you do in or out your home may raise your home’s price from the ‘average’ price of homes for sale in your area.  What is its complication? If the renovation you choose will raise your home’s price to the “upper end” but your neighborhood does not exactly give ...

The good vs the great One of the most important decisions you'll make when you put your Pleasanton home up for sale is choosing the right agent to help you in the selling process. There are so many listing agents, it can be confusing to know which one to choose.  I understand.  It can be challenging especially for first time sellers to know who to hire. Your home is your biggest investment and you would want to work with someone who is not just good but great. Some common mistakes to avoid  A common mistake I see among sellers is hiring the first and only listing agent they meet. This is unwise because there are  many good agents but you are looking for the best one. During the process of home buying, you want to have options so that you have a basis of comparison.  Another mistake I se...

You've decided to put your Pleasanton CA home up for sale. You've had a couple of real estate agents come by and provide you with your home's value based on the comparative market analysis (CMA). However, the prices you were given were drastically different from each other. Which one should you choose? This is a common issue among many home sellers. You know you need to price your home right so it will sell successfully, but no two agent can give you the  exact same price. You've probably considered getting a third opinion, maybe from another real estate agent. Or if you have extra money to spare, you may have thought of getting a home appraisal.The benefit of home appraisal An appraisal determines the current market value of your home by sending a professional state licensed appraiser ...
