Do Most Homeowners Move Before Selling in San Francisco?

March 28, 2022

Do most homeowners move before selling their home in San Francisco?

The short answer is yes.

Do you HAVE to move out before selling your San Francisco Bay Area home? No, you do not!

There are reasons you might want to move before selling your home, but it is not a requirement. Watch the quick video below and read on for more about moving before selling your home.

Should You Move Before Selling in San Francisco?

It's true that moving out before listing your home often leads to a smoother process and a higher sale price. An empty home helps to facilitate professional staging, cleaning, improvements and repairs, as well as open houses and private showings once your property is on the market.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, these pre-sale home preparations are pretty much endemic. The majority of San Francisco real estate listings are vacant and staged by the time they are put up for sale. That said, there is more than one way to achieve a lucrative and efficient home sale in the SF Bay Area.

Sell Your San Francisco Home Without Moving First

Whether for logistical, financial or personal reasons, it's not always feasible for a seller to move out ahead of listing their property for sale. This is NOT a dealbreaker! You can absolutely sell your home in San Francisco without moving out first, and there are a number of strategic updates we still can do for the best chance of a great sale price.

One reason why our team of top San Francisco Realtors has been called the "Rolls Royce of real estate agents" is our personalized service and attention to detail.
