Ron Buck, Realtor Has Home Seller’s Secret Weapon

Ron Buck, Realtor Has Home Seller’s Secret Weapon I have always said that sellers should NOT spend a DOLLAR unless it will make them TWO DOLLARS. This is a good rule of thumb. In other words be vary careful WHERE you spend your money as you prepare to place your home on the market. Search Laguna Niguel and Dana Point HOMES. FIX THE OBVIOUS – You know those items that you have been procrastinating about. The leaky faucet, old water heater, cracked window, missing screens, sticky door or lock, overgrown landscaping, etc. etc. etc. Yes we all have some of those items and it will cost you in terms of a lower selling price or a longer time on market and believe me the inspector will find them. REPLACE CERTAIN LARGE ITEMS –  This is where it gets tricky. My expertise will help you make those decisions. Many of my clients have thanked me for coming by ahead of time, before the actual market date, to help them with those decisions. Now that the prices are UP the buyers are VERY PICKY. You can always discount your price dramatically or offer concessions but that will cost you MORE in the long run than properly preparing your home for sale. Example:  A neighbor in Laguna Niguel, called me over to get advice on preparation and pricing. They did not take my advice or list with me. After eight months on the market and about six price drops the neighbor did sell at a price much less than I could have gotten for them. They neighbor said, “Ron, you were right about...

The Most Deceptive Home Buyer Tool – Price Per Square Foot

The Most Deceptive Home Buyer Tool – Price Per Square Foot Most home buyers have two questions.  The first is, how long has it been on the market? The second is what is the price per square foot? Why do I think the price per square foot is sometimes deceptive? How can a mathematical division problem be deceptive? Isn’t it straight forward? Most people are using price per square foot as a universal factor.  They seem to want all homes to fall within their bracket or they feel the price is out of line. Seems straight forward, right? Let’s look at this tool. 1. It is OK to start with price per square foot.  A starting point for analysis. Make sure you compare apples to apples. Use the apples in the same barrel – tract or neighborhood. 2. The smallest home in the tract will have the highest price per square foot.  Any neighborhood, which is a planned unit development or a single builder tract has a small variety of models. Some smaller, some medium and some large. You will find that the smaller homes have the highest price per square foot and the largest model has the lowest price per square foot relative to that neighborhood. Here is an example; in 2014 I sold a the smallest home in a tract in Laguna Niguel which also happened to be one of the smallest detached homes in the city. The property was nicely remodeled and brought $450 per square foot. Three months later I sold a five bedroom home with a three car garage in the same subdivision which...
