3239 Flintdale Dr, Alum Rock San Jose, CA 95148 SOLD
Listed by Kathleen Daniels, REALTOR® | KD Realty
Kathleen Daniels started working with the Alum Rock San Jose home sellers in January 2019. After living in the home for 33+ years it was time to retire and relocate. It is not uncommon for people to acquire a lot of “stuff” over the years. Many home sellers underestimate how long it will take to prepare for the move. It involves sorting through what they will keep, what they donate, and what will be thrown away.
The initial goal was to list the home in February. Sorting through 33 years of family treasures was taking much longer than expected. The target list date was moved to March. While much progress was being made, we were not ready to list until April. This is a common experience for Kathleen Daniels, Realtor | KD Realty.

How Well Are Clients Represented – About the Offers
Of the seven (7) offers received the one offer that stood out the most was not the offer with the highest offer price. It was the offer that followed instructions and provided the buyers’ lender approval letter and proof of funds.
When considering offers, we look at price, terms, and how well the overall offer package is presented.
- Did the agent writing the offer simply email the offer, or did the buyers’ agent engage with the listing agent in any way?
- Are the proof of funds document(s) current within 30 days or were they stale dated and months old?
- If gift funds were used for the purchase, was a gift letter and proof of funds provided?
- What are the overall terms of the offer?
- Are the contingency time frames realistic?
- Did the buyer and their agent review the seller disclosures and reports prior to making the offer?
A buyer may be extremely well qualified to purchase an Alum Rock San Jose home. The buyer and their agent will likely never know why their offer was not accepted. Often times, agents think it is because of the price – that the seller accepted the highest offer price.
Working with Kathleen Daniels, Realtor | KD Realty there are many more factors she invites her sellers to consider. She also vets the buyers’ financial ability to purchase the home. No one wants to sell a home twice. If the buyers financing is not rock solid, if they do not have sufficient funds to support their offer, if they do not have underwriting approval, the risk to the seller goes up.
In the end, it is not always the highest price offer that sellers accept. For Kathleen Daniels, Realtor | KD Realty it is the best offer that she recommends sellers accept. These Alum Rock San Jose property owners listened to their agent!
