I do the research for you.
In a marketplace loaded with unique properties, locations and prices, there are enough potential variables that can be overwhelming. I will always be available to help identify the right options to meet your needs and budget.
Below are some tips to finding the best home for you:
Consider an improving neighborhood. San Francisco neighborhoods have evolved over the years, many going from shabby to chic. Changes in city planning, transportation and construction can all signal changes to a neighborhood.
Consider a cosmetic fixer. Many buyers shy away from cosmetically unattractive properties (which is why the home staging industry is booming). However, an ugly duckling can often become swan-like with simple and inexpensive enhancements. You may experience lasting value by repainting, removing carpets to reveal hardwoods, or making other sensible changes.
Consider a home with a ‘major’ defect. Disadvantaged properties are less likely to receive multiple offers or bids over the asking price. If repairs and related costs are reasonable, and you are willing to commit to a renovation project, this type of property may be a great option. Cost-effective repairs can reap major benefits when it comes time to sell. While some defects are incurable (like location), they may not affect your personal enjoyment of a property.
