Sell Your SF Bay Area Property Now & Make Top Dollar WITHOUT Becoming Homeless in the Process

Most people think that the late Spring or Summer is the best time to sell a home. In general, across all markets, that is usually the case for people who have homes with 3 or more bedrooms since most people with children tend to plan their moves over the summer in between school years or during school breaks since that is the most convenient time. Since more people list their homes for sale during that time, it helps off-set the higher buyer demand, which means sellers can often get a higher price when there are fewer homes for sale and higher buyer demand. While pricing does get pretty crazy near the end of the school year and early summer, the highest prices are usually received when supply is low and there is high demand.
Right now in Livermore, there are only 84 residential properties for sale. That is less than half of what a “normal” Livermore market would have for sale. What does that mean? Sellers who are willing to sell their homes now will likely receive more money for their properties without having to do as much prior to market “prep” work on the property because there simply is not much for buyers to choose from right now.
 
The market now is pretty similar to the one we were in February of this year. I had some wonderful long time neighbors in Autumn Valley contact me at the end of January who wanted to discuss what they needed to do to prepare their home for sale mid-late April after the seller had officially retired.
For them to sell late Spring/Early Summer and receive the highest price, they would have needed to paint their house inside and out, replace the carpets and entry tile as well as update the hall bath at the very least in addition to having the home staged so that it would be competitive with other homes that hit the market at that time. However, what they did not know was that inventory was VERY VERY low when they spoke to me. I believe there were only 46 homes for sale and they could sell their house and get even more money without having to do very much work if they sold it during the low inventory period.
They took my advice and put their property on the market sooner rather than later and they received multiple offers and a record high price for it in less than a week!
 
Of course, their main concern was like many other home owners… WHERE WILL I GO IF I SELL MY HOUSE NOW (BEFORE I OFFICIALLY RETIRE)? I had that solution for them as well….they would be able to stay in their property as long as they needed with the way I negotiated the transaction for them. Many agents don’t know this simple method I use and their clients become homeless in the process of selling their property. My clients deserve better!!

Sellers and Buyers Recommend Robin Watson-Bird, Bay Area Realtor–She even works with For Sale By Owners!!

I love workinng with great folks; sellers and buyers and sellers who become buyers. Repeat clients and referrals from past clients are the best. Just got this recommmendation from some sellers and buyers who fit in all of those categories!! I listed the childhood home of a great past client, Maricel Buenaventura and her siblings’ Ricky Capil and Lailia Bamba in Daly City and helped Richard, Laila and Ricky find a great home to purchase in Fairfield closer to their family. We should be closing escrow this week!The house I am helping them to buy was actually a For Sale By Owner. YEs, that’s right, a FSBO! I help my buyers loook at and find the right home for them regardless of whether it is listed by an agent on the MLS. WHo is paying my commission for this purchase? The Seller. Most people do not realize that a homeowner who has their home listed for sale by owner will usually cooperate with a buyer’s agent. By cooperate, I mean that they will let the agent bring their buyer and will actually pay them to to complete the transaction. In fact, they will often even pay the buyer’s agent to represent them and complete all the paperwork if they do not know what they are doing. That is what I am doinng for the purchase of the Fairfield FSBO house. People list ther houses by owner for many reasons (some to save money, others privacy not wanting a bunch of people coming through their house, experienced doing it in the past, etc.) and you have to respect whatever that reason is. Unlike many Realtors and Real Estate Brokers in the San Francisco Bay Area, East Bay, Tri-Valley and North Bay, I am happy to work with For Sale By Owners. This year alone I have worked with FSBO’s priced from $400K to over $2,000,000. All had their own reasons for wanting to not have a traditional listing by an agent that was fine by me. My clients got thee homes they wanted and the sellers did not have to pay a full double commission. Also unlike most real estate agents, Realtors and Broker who tend to focus their business on only one or two cities or towns, I Enjoy Helping People Make Their Real Estate Dreams Come True in most of Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Mateo & Parts of Solano, Napa, San Joaquin, & Other Counties. I f there is an area I don’t feel like I can do a great job for my clients in, I am happy to provide referrals to great agents in other counties, cities and states that I don’t serve.  If you or someone you know in the greater bay area has thought about selling your/their home by owner and are willing to cooperate with an agent who has a buyer for their home, PLEASE let me know. I mantain a “secret list of unlisted homes”  that I market to my buyers and I would be happy to add those homes to my list for free!! I can be reached via the contact me form or via cell/text at 925-577-8692.

Here’s my latest recommendation from the Buenaventura, Bamba and Capil family.

Robin did an excellent job!!! Our house was off the market in just 13 days!!! She’s very proffesional, reliable, and very consistant. Robin was very thorough in explaining the whole entire process of selling a home and understanding all the legalities involved. She’s always accesible anytime of the day for any questions or concerns we had. Robin is very compassionate in what she does and very good at it! She is currently on board with us again in purchasing another home. We are just days away towards closing! Thank you so much Robin, we truly appreciate your dedication and hardwork!
