The real estate market here in the San Fernando Valley and LA’s Westside is undergoing a robust rebound from the multi-year lows of the past recession. Buyers are once again encountering the all too familiar scenario of frenzied bidding, often competing with multiple investors whom are offering all cash.

I am often asked how to achieve the highest sales price in today’s market. My answer: It’s all about Presentation, Pricing and Strategy. Your home is seen for the first time only once. Make it count. Bring in a painter and/or handyman and make the home look well tended. Eliminate knickknacks and other clutter that can make a home feel cramped and can create dissonance in a buyer’s brain. Remember, most buyers don’t have vision, so if the house is vacant, or the furnishings are a terrible mishmash, consider good staging.
