Why is staging your home even more important in the digital
Real Estate market?
Approximately 96% of homebuyers start their search online. Those buyers are more likely to click on the
homes that are staged and have professional photographs and even more likely with 15-20 + pictures
than 5-10. The more pictures the better. At this stage buyers are making quick
decisions on whether a home is worth seeing in person. They may click through 25-30 homes at a time - what compels them to stop at your home?
In the new digital marketplace the home seller needs to
attract the homebuyer. If the buyers introduction...
A super cute home has new owners in Woodacre. 263 Redwood Dr. is an open beamed, light filled home sitting

help tremendously. Local loan broker, Nicholas

As we all know the 2013 fire season in Northern California
has been much more active and worse than anyone had imagined. The result of a very dry 2013 winter and a
mountain snowpack of only 17% of normal, we all need to do our part to keep our
neighborhoods, our properties and our families safe from wildfires.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL
FIRE) statistics state that 94% of CA wildfires are started by people,
therefore it is very important that each
of us take all steps to reduce
wildfire risks. CAL FIRE has implemented a program called, "Ready, Set, Go,"
that all of us should be familiar with.

As a dedicated mother of an only child I understand the
intense desire to give that child the very best that life, and we—within our
means—can give her. So it is interesting
to me that, given the choice between going to Marin Catholic or San Rafael
High, she chose SR. This was the culmination
of 8 years of extremely positive experiences in the San Rafael School District,
and I am here to tell you that the water is just fine. In fact, an argument can be built supporting
the idea that the San Rafael schools are superior to other districts—but don’t
get me started. Okay, get me
started. The demographics of the central
San Rafael schools are realistic, in line with the outside world. Learning to thrive in that environment is
The first place folks go to try and understand the merits of
a school are to the famed API scores.
These scores, however, do not represent apples to apples from school to

DataQuick, the La Jolla, CA-based real estate news service
noted in an August 15 report that the number of homes sold in the Bay Area in July was
the highest since 2005. According to the article, the 9,339 homes sold represented
an increase of 18.3% from the previous month and a 13.3% increase over July of
2012. The article quotes Data Quick’s president, John Walsh, characterizing the
current market not as a “frenzy”, but as a market that is in the process of “re-balancing”
itself and “regaining lost ground”. According to the article, Mr. Walsh noted
thatincreasing prices would eventually
attract more sellers, and the increased supply of homes for sale is expected to moderate
future price increases.
Here in Marin County, there were 224 Single Family Residences
(SFR) and 68 Condo’s sold in the month of August. This compares to 250 and 76
