Palo Alto, CADecember 17, 2010 – The agents at Linwood Real Estate and Property Management believe that sprucing up a home and showing it at its very best is the most important thing a homeowner can do to move a home quickly. Linwood Realtor Rebecca McDonald listed a two bedroom, 2 bath Devonshire home in San Carlos for $749,000 in late October and accepted the most attractive of 7 offers less than 30 days later. The home sold for an incredible $47,000 over the asking price.

“There are definitely buyers out there-but you need to make investments in your home to show it right,” said McDonald. “This is especially true the first week the home is for sale, when there’s a lot of activity.”

There was fire damage to the Devonshire home, so McDonald had the home painted and professionally staged. They also had the yards manicured to look their best. The home looked great and was voted ‘Best of Tour’ by Peninsula real estate agents.

Rebecca went so far as to serve scones and lattes from a machine she rented for the brokers’ open house. “Real estate agents are hungry in more ways than one,” said McDonald. “Serving refreshments attracts a bigger crowd.”
