Preparing your Silicon Valley home for sale
When selling your Silicon Valley home, it's important to present it in its best possible light. While we're currently in a sellers' market, it still is important not to cut corners. My job as your agent is to expose your property to the greatest numbers of people and offer suggestions to give it that 'wow' appeal that results in great offers, at top dollar, in a short amount of time.
Take, for instance, the property at 835 Woodhams Oaks Place in Santa Clara, a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse. While the square footage is small, not much over 1,000 square feet, I knew it was important to show potential buyers that's there is plenty of space to enjoy life there. The seller agreed, and so we called in the stager, BJ Hardin Designs. Starting with interior paint, this vacant townhouse has been transformed into a warm and charming space.

I showed this townhouse to a buyer when it was vacant. When it was staged and he saw it online, his reaction changed. In his words,
"...during our discussion on Sunday I could tell that you are very skilled.The preparation you did on the house you listed in Santa Clara confirmed this as the photos make it look immaculate. I am very tempted to ask my Realtor to check it out despite being outside of [preferred] area."
If you're thinking of selling your Silicon Valley home, large or small, take the time to lay the groundwork for a successful sale.
