Real Estate Realities: Tales from the front line of buying and selling San Francisco real estate, Forest Hill edition.
Siblings Mary, Quinn and Jack had fond memories of their childhood home, a Forest Hill San Francisco single family home, but the time had come to let it go. They knew they needed to sell but how? There was a lot of deferred maintenance, and they did not know how to present the home in its best light. Plus, since they all live outside San Francisco, how would they coordinate the home preparation and sale?
They were referred to me by a past client, and I was quickly able to assess the situation and get the ball rolling. Working with all three siblings, I coordinated their plans, ideas and yes, differences of opinion, to help produce an outcome that benefited all of them. In order to maximize profit and show the home as a “diamond in the rough” (rather than a “fixer”), some repair work was necessary. This is Forest Hill, after all! Using my reliable and inexpensive sub-contractors, we oversaw a speedy face-lift. After a month on the market, we negotiated a solid deal and closed escrow 30 days later!
