Are you in the market for a new home? Chances are you’ve already begun your search online. With the many homes in Ruby Hill Pleasanton CA for sale, you might have a handful of options to choose from by now.
Despite a home’s well-kept appearance and stunning architectural details, some hidden problems might be lurking around. Here’s why hiring a professional home inspector is worth every penny.
It isn’t just the cost. We’re talking about the time spent finding, negotiating, packing, moving, settling down, making new friends, and adjusting to the new environment.
Imagine going through all that only to find out that the home you bought had termite problems or unsafe electrical wiring. Some problems are minor and can be fixed, but some might be so bad and make you regret buying the home.
Getting a home inspection before signing the contract can spare you from all this down the road. Most home inspections typically cost between $300 – $400, depending on the size or type of home. I think that that’s a nominal fee compared to what you get in return.
You’ve found a home you love, made an offer, negotiated a deal, and took care of the home inspections. About a week before closing, your agent will help arrange for a final walk-through. In most cases, only the buyer and the buyer’s agent are present.
This stage is critical during the purchase of a Ruby Hill home in Pleasanton CA. Final walk-throughs are your chance to see that the items agreed upon in the contract have been met. That great chandelier in the dining room the seller agreed to leave behind? Better make sure they didn’t take it with them!
Final walk-throughs can be even more crucial if the home is unlived in. What if someone left a faucet running that led to water damage? Or what if there was a storm recently that left some things in disarray?
Here are some things to look out for during the checklist. Take a screenshot or print this list out to keep in hand.
These are just some ideas. Remember, this isn’t a home inspection. That should have been performed weeks ago.
With all that done, all that’s left is closing and you can enjoy your new home! You will have peace of mind and security knowing that nothing will pop out of the blue inconveniently.

Selling homes isn’t easy. That’s why it is imperative to find a Realtor®® that truly knows the tricks of the trade.
With the plethora of real estate agents around, it can be difficult to find just the right one! Keep reading to find out how to get the best agent for your Ruby Hill home in Pleasanton CA.
Have any of your friends recently sold a house? Or maybe someone in your neighborhood just moved in. Ask who their Realtor® was and if they were satisfied with the service.
Google the agent and read their reviews. Also, check out their Facebook or LinkedIn profiles. That’s always a good, easy way to start.
Some agents only sell houses on a part time basis. Others take this profession to the next level and deliver excellent results.
Find out how successful and competent an agent is by checking their track record. A great agent sells a lot of homes, and does it fast. This is the kind of person you want handling your home.
Some Realtors® are new, and some are experienced. Only few are true veterans and masters of the craft.
Sure, an agent might have all the certificates needed, but without going through the School of Hard Knocks, it doesn’t mean much.
Ruby Hill homes in Pleasanton CA are some of the finest in the state. The agent representing you and your home ought to know more than a thing or two about the town. They’ve really got to know it like the back of their hand!
When an agent knows the area well, this means their network of other agents and potential buyers for your home is wide and deep. They know who to contact to get word of your listing out, and they can find just the right match for your specific situation.
Of course, in the end it really boils down to how the agent makes you feel. Does the agent confidently tell you that he can sell your home in a few months? Or does the agent exude an air of uncertainty, making you wonder if your home will ever sell?
Pick an agent you feel comfortable with. The agent will be your partner for the next few months or so. He will be your advocate in the negotiation process, your walking, talking encyclopedia when the paperwork comes in, and your representative all throughout the process.
When it comes to selling houses, nobody does it better than Doug Buenz and the 680 Group! My expert team of agents can help you sell your Ruby Hill home in Pleasanton CA in as little as no time!

Buyers, sellers, investors, and anyone involved in the real estate process has questions in mind. Whether this is your first time or your tenth time around, it’s never too late to learn something new.
Keep reading to see the most common real estate questions people in Ruby Hill Pleasanton CA ask all the time!
The answer is definitely! Talking to a bank early on will let you know how much you can actually afford. This way, you can immediately rule out homes that cost $300,000 and above if your budget does not allow it.
Not many people have hundreds of thousands of dollars lying around, thus the need to take a loan when buying. A pre-qualification can be thought of as the first step in the mortgage process, while a pre-approval is the second step.
Most experts would say that a pre-approval is what really matters, and that a pre-qualification doesn’t really matter much. The pre-approval actually tells what you will be able to loan, giving you an edge over other buyers in a contested home for sale.
This is a great question, and it’s one I hear all the time.
If you have the budget, and if you’re really passionate about something, there’s nothing to stop you from going over the top and completely renovating the house. However, most people consider home repairs to increase the property’s value and potentially make a larger profit.
You can ask your Realtor for advice on which parts of the home need immediate attention. Your Realtor would know which repairs are absolutely necessary to get your Ruby Hill home sold and avoid it going stale on the market.
A ton of videos can be found on the internet that are fun to watch and demonstrate how a meager budget of $50, $100, $200, or $500 can make various upgrades in the living room, bathroom, kitchen, or exterior.
Selling a home by yourself or FSBO (For Sale By Owner) is usually done to save money. However, if you believe that time is gold and gold is money, you are actually losing money because unless you are a trained professional, there’s no way you can sell your home as fast as an experienced Realtor can.
Buying without a Realtor on your side is equally dangerous as well. Without a Realtor, you wouldn’t have anybody on your side to guide you through the intricacies of the buying process. You also risk falling prey to poor decisions, and are left to negotiate prices and other matters all on your own with no one watching your back.
I hope you learned something after reading this list of top real estate questions asked by people buying or selling homes!

In a buyer’s market, meaning the supply of homes exceeds the demand of homes, it could take months before you get a decent offer. On the other hand, in a seller’s market, you could get an offer in a matter of days!
Still, there’s so much we can do to improve our chances of selling regardless of the type of market we’re in!
Keep reading to see how we can sell your Ruby Hill home fast!
Some things you have control over, like the condition of the house and the price. While some, you don’t, like the age of the house and nearby amenities.
A house in good condition will sell a lot faster than a house that is in serious need of repairs. You see, a buyer wants a house that is move-in ready. It’s really worth so much knowing that you can live in a home immediately after you buy it.
Next thing to consider is the price. An overpriced home will get scoffed at and ignored completely by any serious buyer. Pricing your Ruby Hill home in Pleasanton right will attract the proper buyers who are interested in what you have to offer.
Buyers tend to prefer homes with great locations. Do you live near the waterfront? Does your home have fantastic views? Is it close to golfing centers or tennis courts? What about schools and workplaces?
Some buyers want new homes, while others want homes that have been lived in. Others even prefer historic homes, or those with a story.
Henry Ford once said, “A man who stops advertising to save money is like a man who stops a clock to save time.”
Invest in the best photos you can get. Photos are the first impression, and good ones get buyers to call for an appointment.
Prepare your home in every possible way. When you have people come over to see the house, they can be very critical, even if they look like they are having a good time.
Make sure everything is super clean. That, I cannot stress enough. Get rid of any form of clutter, and keep the things you don’t use on a daily basis away in storage.
Your real estate agent will use every means possible to market your home. A good agent will use social media, the Internet, word-of-mouth, and existing contacts with previous clients and other agents to get your home as many offers in the least amount of time.
Do you want to know more about the real estate process? Or how to get your Ruby Hill home sold in the quickest time? I would love to help you out!

There really isn’t a substitute for quality. Working with mediocre agents brings mediocre results, and a lot of headaches. Working with an excellent agent like me brings excellent results!
Do you want to sell your luxury home in Ruby Hill Pleasanton? Here’s a list of some common mistakes to watch out for!
A lot of people think they can save money by selling a home themselves with the help of the Internet. Well, if you think that time is gold, then you’re actually losing a lot of money by doing it on your own!
Selling a home is more than putting that sign on your lawn and posting a few pictures on social media.
Without an experienced agent, you will have to suffer from showing your home to countless people who have zero intent to buy the home. You’ll also burn yourself out by juggling your career, family life, and other obligations on top of the tedious task of home selling.
Yes, I know you think your luxury home in Pleasanton CA is great, and you’re probably right. But keep in mind that buyers are always, always after a good deal.
Other homes for sale are only a fingertip away with the technology we have. You have to make your home stand out aesthetically and highlight every reason why this is the best home on the market right now.
Also, when people are at your home, they are comparing it to the other homes they have seen and are evaluating which one is the best deal for their money. It’s a tough game, and pricing your home right is an invaluable way to get ahead of the competition.
Here’s where we have to strike a delicate balance. We want to price your home low enough to attract buyers, yet high enough to allow room for negotiation without losing money.
Buyers want to feel like they’re getting a good deal. It’s just basic psychology. Allowing them to negotiate the price down will definitely help close the sale.
You have absolutely no reason to skimp on professional photos. Any and every business knows this.
Buyers looking for luxury homes in Ruby Hill Pleasanton CA check photos of available listings before even making a call. Do you seriously think anyone will be interested in your home if the photos are poorly lit or amateur-ish?
A picture says a thousand words. Cheap photos can make a luxury home look cheap.
Invest in high quality photographs and you’ll see the offers it brings to the table!
These are just few of the common mistakes, and there are a lot more pitfalls if you aren’t careful. Working with me, Doug Buenz, is a surefire way of getting your luxury home in Ruby Hill sold.
Call me, Doug Buenz, at (925) 621-0680 today to get your home sold the right way!

It’s the place we go to feel safe. It’s where we shared precious memories with those we love. It is, in a very literal sense, a part of the family.
Letting go of home isn’t easy. For starters, you can’t stop worrying about who will buy it, if they will care for it as much as you do. Then, you have to decide which repairs are worth the investment, and which are nice to have but unnecessary. And finally, there’s the stress of getting it ready for showing, negotiating, and closing!
It takes years to master this process. Keep reading to see how my team of expert Realtors® can help sell homes in Pleasanton CA fast!
Keep these things in mind as you prepare your home for sale:
Start with the kitchen. It’s one of the first rooms buyers go to. A fresh coat of paint, replacing drab cabinets, adding a touch of color, all these go a long way.
It doesn’t have to be expensive. You can easily think of something to do with whatever budget you have, be it a couple hundred dollars or a few thousand.
The bathrooms are next, especially the master’s bathroom. Check the caulking, the grout, the tiles, the glass, drains, faucets, hard water stains, and everything. These are an indication of the home’s state.
And never forget the exterior! A fresh looking exterior will pull your buyers in the front door.
Take a look at the lawn, the front door, the garage door, the windows, the curb, and also make sure to tidy up your kids’ playthings, too!
People can make up their minds before even seeing a property in person.
Consider investing in professional photography. These professionals know how to put a home in its best light. They consider the time of day, the season, and everything else in play.
Without fantastic shots, your home for sale could go stale on the market as buyers “swipe left” the moment they see it.
Your home may be the most valuable thing in the world to you, but for others, it’s just a house.
Setting your house way above its real value is probably the number one way to keep it on the market forever. Buyers have access to virtually every home in their desired area through the internet. They can easily tell if your house is priced way above comparable listings in the Ruby Hill community.
My team of professional agents can prepare a CMA, or comparative market analysis, for you. This CMA will compare the prices of homes sold that are similar to yours, and also the prices of homes currently for sale.
Doing this right will bring in buyers fast, and before you know it, your home in Ruby Hill Pleasanton will be sold in no time!
And all that’s left is to negotiate. With me on your side, you can rest assured that I will care for your home as much as you do. I want you to get the price you deserve, and I want to get it done as soon as we can so you can move forward with life.
