Downsizing and Trading Up Your Home
One thing we can count on (along with taxes) is change. At one time or another, circumstances of our lives will change. Things like marriage and children and jobs change the way we live, and how much space we require. Choosing a home is based on a current snapshot in time of where we are and what we’re doing and what we need.
Say you are starting a family, or your family is growing. That cute little 2 bedroom you and your spouse bought is rapidly becoming too small. Or maybe you are enjoying a measure of success, and would like to upgrade to a larger home with more amenities. Either way, one house needs to be sold and another found and purchased. While this seems like a herculean task, rest assured. This is where we come in. We have the tools to help you determine how much to sell your old house for, and how much the next house might cost, and the many steps in between! Our extensive experience and years in real estate makes this whole process much less daunting. With our help, the steps are outlined, the process defined, and the change can really happen!
Perhaps you are on the other end of space requirements. The last child has just left for college, and you’ve become an empty nester. Maybe retirement is in the works and it’s time to free up some cash and start planning some travels. You want to sell the current house, and find something a little smaller with less upkeep. Readying a home to put on the market seems like an overwhelming chore. What kinds of things are buyers looking for? What can I sell my house for? What do I need to do to get it sold? Where are there homes in San Ramon that are smaller with less maintenance? Do I sell this one first, then pick out a new one, or the other way around? These are all questions we can answer. We have the latest sales figures and trends at our fingertips, and can explain the process. We will provide the knowledge you need to take the next steps.
One of the great things about San Ramon is the huge variety of housing sizes and styles. Looking for a home for your growing family with great schools nearby? We have that. Looking for an upscale home that suits your lifestyle? We have that. Looking for a smaller home with low to no maintenance? We have it. Looking for a 55+ development that suits your retirement lifestyle? We have that too! All that plus well maintained streets and parks, and lots of amenities like shopping and restaurants. Top it off with a large business park and ease of transportation to places like the Silicon Valley or San Francisco.
San Ramon has something for everyone. So no matter what change you are facing, trading up or scaling down, you need to look no further. Call, email or text us. Even if you aren’t sure what you’re doing yet, we are happy to talk with you and answer your questions.
