Selling Privately

HOW CAN I FIND OUT WHAT MY PROPERTY IS WORTH?

Joseph is available for appointments to evaluate the residence you are considering selling privately. For general inquiries about the value of your property, please contact him to schedule a preview. When evaluating a property, Joseph typically requests details such as interior and structural upgrades during ownership, information about the history of the property including relevant ownership provenance, and specific aspects of the property that the homeowner believes add unique value.

HOW DOES JOSEPH DETERMINE WHETHER A PRIVATE SALE OR THE OPEN MARKET IS THE MOST SUITABLE METHOD?

After Joseph previews and appraises your property, he will assess the best method for offering your home and achieving your goals. He will work with you to develop a personalized sale strategy that will be the most beneficial for your specific needs. This is based on his unique market access and seasoned insights. All private sale inquiries are treated with the utmost privacy and confidentiality.

HOW WILL YOU FIND A BUYER FOR MY PROPERTY?

Once the decision has been made to offer your home privately through Mr. Lucier, he will present you with an agreement outlining his exclusive right to represent the property for agreed upon period of time.  He will then discreetly offer your property to individually qualified purchasers, one at a time, while keeping you informed of his progress.

Buying Privately

WHAT ARE PRIVATE SALES?

Salon Privé is a discreet and tailored service which connects a specific property with the ‘wish-list’ of a qualified buyer. Acting as you personal matchmaker, Joseph makes these connections through his extensive network.

Sophisticated homeowners or first time buyers can approach Mr. Lucier with a specific property they are looking for. He then employs his well connected network to locate specific properties and contact owners to broker a private sale.

HOW DO PRIVATE SALES WORK?

Joseph works one-on-one with property owners and buyers. He offers a boutique service — helping clients to find specific residences through his lucrative network and then negotiating the exchange. Given his many years of experience in this business, Mr. Lucier is fortunate to have privileged access to rare and unique San Francisco homes and the necessary relationships with the owners to broker a sale.

HOW DO BUYERS DECIDE BETWEEN PRIVATE SALES AND THE OPEN MARKET?

Joseph's clients can choose both or either option. For the buyer, Salon Privé is best suited to specific requests where a client is absolutely certain of what they are looking for. Should that property be offered on the open market in the meantime, then Joseph would be able to help there too.

HOW QUICKLY COULD YOU IDENTIFY PROPERTY THAT CLOSELY MATCHES MY SPECIFICATIONS?

Mr. Lucier's search capabilities are robust given his extensive relationship network with owners of the city's luxury properties. He will do his utmost to quickly locate the residence that you desire, but transaction timing may vary depending on the unique search criteria of the property you wish to purchase. Joseph will continue to source private and open market opportunities until your needs have been met.
