Home Sellers: Do You Know. . ?

floorplan

  • Exactly where your property lines are?
  • New additions to your property, like fences, should be on record.
  • That exact square footage and floor plans are a boon to buyers
  • Tax records may not accurately reflect your home’s current status

I have a client who wants to sell her fourplex.  I went to look at the property, and sure enough, it looked like a fourplex to me:  one two unit building in the front and another two-unit building in the back.

Mysteriously, on the public record it shows up as two two bedroom homes on a single lot.  Now she has to get that mistake straightened out with the county so it can be legally sold as a fourplex.

There’s a lot of information and misinformation that can show up when you’re selling your home.  A good agent will help you straighten everything out so when your home finally does go on the market there won’t be any ugly surprises.

Here’s a great list of items–courtesy of Coldwell Banker–that most potential home sellers don’t even think about when they’re considering selling their home. 

If you have a home you’d like to sell, you can see that there are a lot of buyers out there that want your East Bay property.  Give me a call at 510-527-0174 and let’s talk about the best sales strategy for YOU.
