5 Surprising Homebuyer Turnoffs - Selling your home requires a lot of prep work. After all, you want to impress as many potential buyers as possible. You can spend lots of time and money adding new upgrades, improving your curb appeal, orstaging your home. But if you make one wrong move, it can lower your sales price, or even worse, prevent a sale at all. Make your home a serious contender and steer clear of these buyer turnoffs.

5 Smart Staging Tips - There’s more than one type of staging.  There are staging strategies for when you sell your home, and then there’s everyday staging to help your home look beautiful and comfortable—and uniquely yours. After all, your home’s style should feel like a true reflection of you, and that goes beyond just pieces of furniture.

SummerHill Homes, based in San Ramon, closed on the site at 100 Prospect Ave. this week for an undisclosed sum. The company plans to build 17 homes there at prices starting at $3.5 million, executives said.

At some point, rising real estate prices in the heart of the tech industry will become cost-prohibitive, but he says that tech companies today are worried more about people than office space. “Right now, based on where we are in the cycle, companies are focused more on talent versus cost. That will shift, but we’re not there yet, and I don’t see that happening in the next 12 months.”
