Selling a Duplex Rental Property in Silicon Valley

Owning a duplex isn’t right for everyone – and the good news is I can help you sell yours with maximum profit. I’ve helped many people sell duplexes all over Silicon Valley. Including people who simply didn’t want to be landlords, those who wanted to diversify their portfolios, and those who wanted to “trade up” a property to earn even more income. Several clients:

  • Aren’t cut out to be full-time property managers, or they just didn’t have the time they needed to manage their properties

  • Want to buy another investment property using a 1031 exchange

  • Don’t have the resources to keep hiring maintenance pros for the property, and don’t want to do maintenance and repair jobs themselves

  • Aren’t interested in finding and vetting new tenants every time someone moves out

  • Tired of having “cash flow” issues because of tenants not paying rent

Whatever your reason is for selling a duplex, we are here to help.  Call today and find out how much your rental property is worth so you can make an informed decision that’s right for you.

Why Work With Me

Selling a duplex is different from selling a single-family home – and you need to work with a skilled, experienced Silicon Valley multifamily REALTOR® who understands the ins and outs of pricing, marketing and negotiation in order to sell quickly and at the right price. This guide explains how your REALTOR will determine how much your rental property is worth when you sell a duplex in Silicon Valley.

How Much is My Rental Property Worth?

If you’re like many people, the first thing you want to know is how much your rental property is worth – and that’s an important figure. If you don’t know how much your duplex is worth, you can’t be sure you’re making the best decision for your financial future.

When you’re selling a duplex, your REALTOR will factor in things like:

  • Individual unit sizes
  • Location
  • Rent prices and net operating income
  • Property amenities
  • The property’s age
  • Any recent upgrades
  • Cap rate

All of these things help you and your agent settle on a competitive listing price for the property. The bottom line is that your duplex is only worth what another investor is willing to pay for it, and you have to find the perfect price range to bring in interested (and qualified) buyers.

What Happens if You Ask Too Much When You’re Selling a Duplex in Silicon Valley?

Though it may seem counterintuitive to ask buyers to pay exactly what you want when you’re selling a duplex – rather than going high and letting people “talk you down” – the best way to bring in the widest pool of qualified buyers is to price it correctly right out of the gate. If you price your duplex too high, it’s going to sit on the market, unsold, until you lower the price. (And that strategy can backfire.)

There are two issues with pricing your duplex too high.

First Issue:

Buyers are very tech savvy today and conduct a lot of research on the internet prior to entering the market.  Therefore, they can clearly see current prices and trends, and know what properties are worth in today’s market.

Second Issue:

Buyers know how much they can afford to spend when they start looking at duplexes for sale, and most begin their property searches online with specific parameters in mind.

Here is an example: If you list a duplex for $950,000 when it’s really worth $800,000, the buyers who can afford to purchase it at a reasonable price will never see it; they’re only looking at homes in their own price range. Even worse, the buyers who can afford a $950,000 duplex will see yours and compare it to other duplexes in the same price range – and unfortunately, yours is going to come up short.

What Happens if You Ask Too Little When You’re Selling a Duplex?

If you ask too little for your duplex, you’re leaving money on the table. That’s cash that could be in your pocket, going toward another investment property, or used to improve other properties that you currently own.
