You've seen it many times while driving or walking by. Every neighborhood has a few of them. Some have more, some have fewer, but every neighborhood has what we like to call "The Baron & Chestney Property". What does it look like? Well, let's say that it looks like a diamond among a bunch of ordinary rocks. IT STANDS OUT! You know the type -- very neat and tidy, nice landscaping (if applicable), fresh paint and trim, beautifully maintained, often nicely decorated for the holidays. It is not necessarily the biggest or most expensive house in the neighborhood, but it is always the one that shines and sparkles. You think to yourself, "that owner REALLY takes a lot of pride in his or her home. That place ALWAYS looks so nice". Next time you are driving or walking around, try to find the one or two houses on each block that fit this description. You'll see what we mean. (Another way to approach this is from the other direction...every neighborhood has one or two properties that show owner neglect. There are always one or two homes that make you think, "Wow-- couldn't they spend a few dollars and paint it themselves?!" This is the OPPOSITE of a Baron & Chestney home!)
There is so much truth to the old adage of location, location, and location in the real estate industry when it comes to determining the price-- or, rather, the price RANGE -- for which a home will likely be sold . It is generally true that two identical properties, right next to each other, in the same condition, (House A and House B, for example) will command roughly the same price. However, if House A requires roof repairs, new paint, lots of cleanup in the yard, and repairs inside, as well, and House B does not, House B may command a price of several thousands of dollars more. More importantly, which property will likely sell faster? House B, of course. It shows better. It says "This is home", while House A says, "This is a mess!". Therefore, at Baron & Chestney Real Estate, our discount real estate brokers only take those home listings that we feel will command the respect of home buyers. We firmly believe that the better maintained, better looking properties in any given neighborhood do just that. We want to list the houses that jump up and say "ME! PICK ME!", above all the rest in the neighborhood. Is your home a Baron & Chestney property? If it is, then Baron & Chestney Real Estate may indeed be the right firm with which to list your home for sale. If so, please contact us so that we may arrange for a Baron & Chestney Real Estate discount realtor to meet you, tour your home, and discuss our real estate sales strategies with you. You will save THOUSANDS in realtor commissions, yet still get the full service of a "national chain" 6% commission realty company. Are you looking to purchase a home that is worthy of being a Baron & Chestney property? Again, please contact us, so that a Baron & Chestney Real Estate discount broker may help you locate and purchase such a home. Best of all, our discount brokers will get you a home buyer cash rebate of up to 2% of the purchase price of the home, after close of escrow.
Yes, even brand new homes sold through builders may apply, as well! Thinking about buying a brand new home from a builder of a new development? Call Baron & Chestney Real Estate BEFORE you visit the model homes! Many new home builders offer realtor commission incentives. In fact, as the real estate market cools, these amounts can be quite substantial. The amounts will vary from builder to builder, but the catch is ALWAYS that a real estate broker MUST accompany you on your very FIRST visit to the new home development, to register you. Do not go see the model homes without calling us first! A Baron & Chestney Real Estate discount realtor will check to see what incentives the builder may offer, and then we can arrange to accompany you on your first visit to see the model homes. If one of our discount realtors does not go with you, there will never be a chance for us to offer you a home buyer real estate commission rebate. Once you put your name on the builder's list, there will be no realtor rebates and no real estate commission incentives for anyone. One of our discount commission brokers must accompany you on your FIRST visit to the model homes and register you on the builder's list in order to be able to get you a home buyer rebate, if the builder offers realtor commission incentives to real estate brokers.
Call Baron & Chestney Real Estate first, before you sell or buy any piece of real estate, anywhere in the San Francisco bay area, and we will save you THOUSANDS of real estate commission dollars on your next realty transaction, whether you are buying real estate, selling real estate, or BOTH.
