As a licensed agent and Realtor, my primary responsibility involves assisting sellers in preparing and selling their homes through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Nevertheless, not all homeowners prefer the traditional process of selling their homes or having their properties listed on the MLS, and there could be various reasons for this preference. Some homeowners may require a fast sale, while others may wish to avoid the hassle of renovating their homes and dealing with showings and open houses.

In certain situations, homeowners might be motivated to sell quickly to facilitate the purchase of a new home they have already identified, aiming to ensure a swift and secure transaction. Drawing on my experience working with numerous sellers, I recognize that each individual's needs are unique. Consequently, I have tailored my services to accommodate a variety of solutions designed to meet the specific needs of sellers.

Whether you are a homeowner seeking a prompt direct sale or aiming to enhance your property's sale potential through updates, I offer solutions that can be customized to your requirements. My goal is to provide comprehensive and personalized services that address the diverse needs of sellers in the real estate market.

Top Questions To Ask Your Real Estate Agent When Selling
You need to start interviewing agents now to discover the best one to sell your house when you're ready to sell next year.

When Is the Best Time To Sell a Home in Santa Clara?
In real estate, as in life, timing is everything. A real estate transaction could mean the difference between tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Selling a home is one of the biggest events that can happen in a person’s life. Whether you are downsizing, relocating, or selling your late mother’s home, it’s a monumental event.

Understanding Real Estate Commissions
In most real estate transactions, there are two agents involved, with one side representing the seller and the other the buyer. Each of these agents is paid a commission when the sale closes. In our current market, buyer agents are typically compensated at a 2.5% commission rate. This is set on the MLS when the property is first listed. It is important to understand how much the listing agent will offer as compensation to the buyer’s agent. Once you understand what portion of the commission is being offe

5 Ways to Sell Your Home

  • All-Cash Instant Offer
  • Trade-In
  • Quick Listing Process
  • Full Service
  • Full Service Plus+

So often determining the right course of action when you sell your home may not be straightforward.  There are times when selling your home AS-IS as opposed to spending money and time on updates, is the best course of action.

Helping you assess the benefits and risks of each scenario is what I do as a real estate professional and an expert in the Santa Clara and South Bay real estate market.

To learn more about whether selling as-is or fixing up your home is the right way to go, you should check out my video “Should I Fix Up My House or Sell As-Is?”

Let’s first explore all the options available to you when you decide to sell your property.

Perhaps the easiest and most straightforward way to sell your property is with an Instant All-Cash offer.

All-Cash Instant Offer

Who would be interested:

Why would someone prefer to take an all-cash offer instead of listing their home on the MLS or market?

Circumstances may be that you need to get your home sold fast, or just don’t see the need to go through all the hassle to sell your home.

This is where an Instant All-Cash Offer would help you get your home sold quickly and get your funds in a matter of days.

How it works:

  • We will market your home to our network of investors and get you a number of all-cash offers to choose from.
  • We can get you as many as 3 offers within 48 hours of showing your home.
  • You’ll skip the hassle of prepping your home, showings, and listing your home and will sell your home in AS-IS condition.  You can take what you want and we can arrange for the buyer to dump what’s left over.

Benefits:

  • Multiple offers from investors who are looking to buy homes they can turn around fix up and sell.  Or offers from buyers who are interested in buying a home like yours, who have access to an all cash program that will enable them to secure a cash offer.
  • All-Cash offers provide flexibility in regards to the condition of the property and can close as quickly as 10 days, meaning that you can get your proceeds from the sale faster.
  • This program will guarantee you a minimal Free 30-Day Rent Back that allows you to remain in your home for 30 days after your home closes.  There is a possibility that we can extend that rent back beyond 30 days.

The downsides of an all-cash offer is that your home will not be exposed to the market and therefore is likely to sell for a price below what it could sell for if listed on the market.

The positive is that your selling costs are lower since you may not have to offer a commission to the buyers agent, and you can get your home sold quickly without all the hassle of putting it on the market.

All Commissions and Fees can vary and will depend on Home’s Value and Price. For more clarification and to get an accurate breakdown please call for a home consultation.

Trade-In

Who would be interested:

The trade in program is specifically designed for those buyers who have found the home that they want to buy but need to sell their home first.

Homeowners who find themselves in this predicament generally do have the time to get their home sold quickly enough to buy their new home.

Benefits of Trade-In:

This method is similar to the All-Cash Instant offer, but with a trade-in you can remain in your current home for up to 60 days while you close and wait to move into your new home.

Unlike the Instant All Cash offer, you can still benefit from the sale even after you have sold it.

  • This program removes the stress of having to sell your existing home before finding a new home. In this scenario, we will get you a guaranteed all-cash offer on your home at a price that you would know in advance.
  • After you close escrow on your new home, we will list your home on the market, and if your home sells for more than what you were originally offered you get the difference.
  • You will benefit from top-tier marketing of your home and full exposure to the MLS, bringing in more buyers and a higher price than you would if you took an instant all-cash offer.

Quick Listing Process

Quick Listing Process – is designed to get your home on the market quickly and save you on selling fees and commissions.

Who would be interested:  You want to get a great price when you sell your home and are willing to put in some work and effort.

Your home is already in good condition and may just need some simple sprucing up such as painting, staging, and yard work.

Benefits:

  • You will benefit from top-tier marketing of your home and full exposure to the MLS, bringing in more buyers and a higher price.
  • Work with Santa Clara’s top listing agent, but save thousands in reduced selling costs.

Includes:

  • Professional Home Value Assessment and Pricing by Santa Clara’s #1 Agent
  • Complimentary Professional Staging
  • Use of our In-house Design Services – latest trends and colors to have your home looking great

Full Service: “Renovate Now, Pay Later”- Our Complete Selling Solution

Who would be interested:  You want to get a great price when you sell your home and are willing to put in some work and effort.

Full Service Plus+: “Renovate Now, Pay Later"—Our  Complete Selling Solution

Who would be interested: 

Sometimes it makes sense to do substantial updates to a home to make it stand out and get maximum return.

Depending on your home and the market, remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms, installing a new roof, or opening up a wall can really add value and make your home stand out.

These updates have to be carefully planned and executed.  If done correctly they can result in massive gains when you sell.  If not, they could result in lost time and opportunities, and ultimately end up costing you more.

If your home has potential and you’re willing to invest the time and money, Full Service Plus+ might be the right way to sell your home.

Includes:

  • Professional Home Value Assessment and Pricing by Santa Clara’s #1 Agent
  • Complimentary Professional Staging
  • Use of our In-house Design Services – latest trends to have your home looking great
