Here’s How to Effectively List & Market Your Home in the “Hot” Season

The most popular time to list your home in the Silicon Valley in 2017 is coming up… on March 31, in fact. And if you want to stand out amongst the crowd and sell your home (without having to drop the price), you’ll need to employ the best home-selling and marketing tips out there. Are you prepared?

To help get your ready to list your home during the busy season, we’ve got some tips to keep you competitive and sell your home quickly—and for more!

Price Your Home to Sell

sold sign on a houseWant to sell your home quickly yet still make the most money on it? Start with the right price. There are a lot of resources out there to help you find that sweet spot, like a neighborhood sold report, which will give you an idea of what other homes in your neighborhood are selling for, or even just searching homes for sale in your neighborhood to see prices at which similar homes are listed.

To really get an accurate read of your home value and the correct price, however, it’s always best to request a full home analysis that will take into account any renovations, improvements, or modifications you’ve made.

Make a Wow-ing First Impression

beautiful new kitchenNothing sells a home like… the home! So make your home stand out from the crowd. Start with home improvements and easy fixes that will clean up, declutter, and showcase your home. Make it look its very best, inside and out. Professional photography will give your home an outstanding online appeal (most buyers are starting their home searches online nowadays), curb appeal will welcome visitors to your front door, and superior staging will make your home’s best features stand out.

Set a Stage to Welcome, Showcase & Impress

Make sure your yard is neat, your front walkways and driveway are clear and easily-accessible, and everything is in good repair.

Inside, remove your personalized decor, decorations, and photos. Make your home look like anyone’s home—because it could be. Give your buyers the opportunity to imagine their own furniture and decor in your home.

And of course, make sure your home is clean, tidy, and free of clutter.

This Silicon Valley Neighborhood Makes Redfin’s Hottest Neighborhoods List!

housing market is risingThe housing market is booming—especially around some of the high-growth job cities like San Francisco, Seattle, and San Jose. The job markets are growing in these areas, so new residents are flocking. However, because prices directly within the city are also growing, more and more buyers are searching in the smaller, more affordable communities around these areas, says a recent study by Redfin.com. In fact, Redfin predicts this will be the “year of the second-tier city”.

America’s Hottest Neighborhoods of 2017

Redfin calculated its “hottest” neighborhoods by number of neighborhood page views and searches, as well as saved favorites. Unsurprisingly, the hottest neighborhoods of 2017 are not in the major cities of San Francisco, Seattle, and San Jose, but around them. Ranked #1 was Bushrod in Oakland, CA. And at #3 was the Silicon Valley’s own Serra of Sunnyvale, CA!

Lots of shopping and dining, access to public transportation and major commuter highways, and larger homes with more affordable price tags.

Welcome to Serra in Sunnyvale

Also referred to as “The Dalles”, Serra is located just south of Downtown Sunnyvale along the Junipero Serra Freeway (towards San Jose) and Route 85. Besides a quiet and charming neighborhood of single-family homes, buyers are drawn for the neighborhood’s access to top schools, as well as the amenities and attractions of both Downtown Sunnyvale and nearby Cupertino.

Its home sales numbers are also pretty impressive—such as a median sale price of $1,760,000, an average list time of just 13 days, and a high sale-to-list ratio of 106.8%.

Other Top Neighborhoods in the San Jose Metro Area

Besides Serra of Sunnyvale, local amenities draw residentsthe other top neighborhoods of the Silicon Valley include Sunnyhills in Milpitas (which offers a unique blend of outstanding outdoor recreation, plenty of shopping and dining, and highway access to San Jose or Fremont) and Miramonte-Springer of Mountain View (which is centrally located for access to plenty of shopping and dining, community parks and recreation, and a highway commute to San Jose or San Francisco).

Selling a Silicon Valley Home in 2017? Step-by-Step Instructions to Make it Happen!

Thinking of selling your Silicon Valley home in 2017? home for sale in the silicon valleyThere’s actually quite a bit of planning and preparation involved—if you want to get the greatest possible amount of money for your home. Here are step-by-step instructions to make it happen!

Step 1: Find Your Realtor

One of the most important things you can do when selling a home in the Silicon Valley is to work with a trustworthy and highly experienced Realtor. A Realtor with the right experience and knowledge can offer you invaluable advice throughout the selling process, including home staging, marketing, and negotiation.

When to start: at least 2 months out.

Step 2: Consider Repairs & Improvements

Your Realtor will do a walkthrough of your home and make note of any features, rooms, or areas that require attention. Sometimes, the simplest repairs, minor renovations, and touch-ups can add significant value to your home. Additionally, if you know of any maintenance problems or issues with your home, you will want to fix them well before you start showing your home.beautiful remodeled kitchen in the silicon valley

Some easy ways to improve your home’s value can include painting (inside and outside), replacing old or tarnished hardware in your kitchen, bathroom, and on your doors, improving your landscaping, updating or refinishing flooring, and fixing roofing and siding.

When to start: 6 to 8 weeks out.

Step 3: Determine Your Selling Price

Work with your Realtor to compare your home to homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood to determine a competitive listing price for your home. This will take into account any improvements and repairs that you’ve completed, as well as the state of the local real estate market.

When to start: 6 weeks out.

Step 4: Start Decluttering

One of the biggest improvements you can make for your home is to declutter and depersonalize. This does take time, but it can make your home look larger, cleaner, and more welcoming. Removing personalized decor, furniture, or photos can even help your buyers picture their own personalizations in their potential new home.

When to start: at least 4 weeks out.

Step 5: Deep Clean

As soon as you’ve finished removing the big clutter, it’s time to go in deep and give your house the most thorough cleaning it’s ever had. If you’re not a big fan of cleaning, hire a professional maid service. If you have pets or stained carpet, it might also be beneficial to enlist a professional carpet cleaner.beautifully staged living room

Step 6: Stage & Photograph

Work with your Realtor to stage your home to be welcoming, neat, and organized. Proper staging can be used to highlight your home’s best features, make your rooms appear bigger and brighter, and truly make buyers feel welcome. Additionally, professional photography will paint your home in its best light—and allow buyers to view it from their computers, tablets, and phones.

Step 7: List Your Home Online

It’s time! But don’t just throw your listing online at any old time. Fridays and Saturdays tend to be the busiest online buyer-browsing days, so it can be beneficial to post your listing on a Thursday or Friday morning so it’s ready for the weekend. Additionally, never post an incomplete listing (without professional photos, detailed description, and home statistics), as buyers aren’t likely to click.

The Silicon Valley: Home to the Most Expensive Zip Codes in the US

RS201_iStock_000005961236Medium-scrLooking for luxury in the Silicon Valley? It won’t be hard to find—some of the most expensive and luxurious homes can be found throughout the communities of the Silicon Valley and Bay Area. In fact, according to a 2015 Forbes study, California zip codes, and especially those of the Silicon Valley and Bay Area, dominate the charts for most expensive zip codes in the US.

The Most Expensive Zip Codes in America

Coming in at the #1 most expensive zip code was the Silicon Valley’s own 94027 of Atherton, a luxurious community located just north of Palo Alto (which had a high-ranking zip code of its own). The median home price of this extravagant community was just over $10.5 million, a cost that might seem absurd, but with the abundance of lavish mansions, lush landscaping, and top-rated schools within its boundaries—not to mention its easy commute to top-tier tech jobs in Menlo Park and Palo Alto—it’s not an unbelievable pricetag.

RS3405_iStock_000021808235Medium-scrOther Top Zip Codes of the Valley

Following Atherton for most expensive zip codes in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area were 94062 of Woodside and 94010 of Hillsborough (both Bay Area communities). The next Silicon zip was 94022 of Los Altos Hills, coming in at number 11 nationally and second in the Valley. Its median price of $2.4 million is due in part to its scenic landscape of rolling hills and valley, and partially to its absolutely breathtaking architecture of stately mansions. Following just behind San Francisco (#22 nationally) came Palo Alto’s 94301 (#36 nationally, third in the Valley) with a median price of $2.2 million. Los Gatos and 95030 came in fourth (51st in America) at $1.8 million.

What Does This Mean for the Silicon Valley?achievement-18134_640

Tips for First-Time Home Buyers in the Silicon Valley

You’ve decided to buy your first home, and you’ve chosen the Silicon Valley!Estate Agent Showing Prospective Female Buyer Around PropertyIt’s a wise choice—high-paying and high-tech jobs abound, attractions and entertainment wait around just about every corner, and quality of life is very high in this blossoming area. But where to begin? Buying your first home can be a very daunting process if you don’t know where to start. But it doesn’t have to be stressful or overwhelming. Start slow, get organized, be prepared, and the process will go smoothly.

Before You Buy

Before you start searching for homes or attending open houses, there are a few important details to work out.

1. What type of home are you looking for?

Do you want a brand-new home, or are you willing to try your hand with a fixer-upper? Do you want your own space or something more urban, such as a condo or townhome?

2. What neighborhood and home features do you need?

Some neighborhoods have a lot of amenities, others offer quiet seclusion and large yards. And deciding the details of your home—number of bedrooms, style of kitchen, closet size—is obviously crucial, as well.

3. What size loan do you qualify for?

You’ve got the perfect image of a home in your head—but that’s only relevant if you can get a loan! Find out what lenders will actually offer you, based on credit and income, before you start really searching for houses.

4. What can you afford?

Just because a bank will give you a certain amount of money, doesn’t mean you can afford it! Consider all the costs associated with buying a home—from down payments and closing costs to insurance and property taxes. Keep in mind that home costs aren’t just your monthly mortgage payments, and remember details like the cost of maintenance and repairs.

Discussion with a real estate agent at the officeBuying a Home

So you’ve worked out all the details… Now it’s time to really get started!

So, what’s first?

1. Find an agent.

This is an important first step—especially for a first-time buyer. Since this is your first time in the home-buying arena, you want to focus on finding an agent who knows the local market, inside and out, but who will also be able to give you the personal attention and time to guide you through the process and answer all your questions.

2. Find your home.

Use an advanced search tool to narrow down your home search by location, neighborhood, price, amenities, styles, and more!

3. Hone in on your finances.

There are many  home-buyer assistance programs in California and the Silicon Valley designed to reduce the amount of your down payment and make buying your own home considerably more affordable.

4. Make an offer.

Once you find that perfect home, make an offer. Your agent will help you find the right price to offer.

5. Request a home inspection.

Have a trained professional walk through and check for quality, safety, and overall condition of the home.

6. Close.

Breathe a sigh of relief, and then dive into the paperwork.

7. Move in!

Finally… It’s yours!

Mountain View May See a Permanent LinkedIn Campus

Real estate is in high demand in Silicon Valley.

And earlier this year, Mountain View city officials decided on building rights for a prime area of real estate, North Bayshore.

Development in North Bayshore

Mountain View’s North Bayshore neighborhood has been a magnet for high-tech employers, and the North Bayshore development plan envisions it as an area that meets the city’s development needs while preserving its natural landscape.

A New Campus for LinkedIn

The campus proposal received praise from city officials a few weeks ago, and the proposed project’s first phase has a future completion date set for 2019.
