Pre-market Home Sale in San Francisco
Can a pre-market home sale happen in San Francisco? Is selling pre-market something you should try to do as a San Francisco home seller?
The short answer is yes, and it depends!
Real estate is deeply personal. A property is a place to live, a major investment, and/or a family home with years of memories. Every buyer or seller’s situation is uniquely personal too.
With regard to a seller’s ideal timing and goals, it often makes sense for them to move out, fix up and professionally stage their property. This can increase the likelihood of a really great sale price and net a big ROI. We collaborate with sellers to come up with a plan, coordinate, and oversee all the work, so you can relax and watch the magic happen.
Or, for myriad personal reasons, a seller may not wish to invest time and money into pre-sale home improvements. They may not want a prolonged process of preparing and marketing their San Francisco home for sale. This is fine too! In our 2+ decades as top San Francisco real estate agents, we’ve helped all sorts of sellers to get great results.

Granted, there’s a lot to be gained from using a public marketing period to showcase your property to the widest possible swath of buyers. But again, real estate is personal. Maybe a super fast sale with minimal stress is your top priority. To make this happen, we leverage our network and professional connections to attempt to find your property a buyer while it’s still “coming soon”—not yet active and widely available on the MLS.
That’s exactly what we did in the sale of our recent Potrero Hill real estate listing at 230 Texas Street!

In this case, the sellers really said it best. So, here’s their 5-star review of working with Danielle and the Vivre Real Estate team:
“After years as a rental, our grandparent’s beautiful Potrero Hill home was showing its age—still standing strong after almost 100 years, but seriously in need of some love and attention.
We called Danielle because we wanted someone who was knowledgeable in San Francisco real estate.
Within days she brought in multiple interested buyers before the house was even on the market and we were able to sell our house for a really good and fair price.
With Danielle and her excellent team on board it was a quick and painless process, and honestly it was kind of exciting to watch what someone with years of experience can do, which in our case was just a matter of days.
She is always available for questions, she gave us daily updates and helped us understand what to expect with every part of the sale. I highly recommend Danielle Lazier and her team and will definitely call her again. Thanks for everything!”
