3 Reason Staging Your Home Pays off

3 Reason Staging Your Home Pays off 

  1. A staged home looks better in pictures
  2. Homes that are staged typically list for a higher price and sell for a higher price
  3. Potential buyers will stay longer during a showing

Staging Graphic

  1.      A staged home looks better in pictures

The old saying, “One picture is worth a thousand words” might have been coined for a staged home. Multiply that 1,000 words by the number of pictures your agent is going to post online for your listing. That is a powerful pictorial message and a strong story presented online. Literally 1000’s of words conveyed by the pictures attached to your homes listing.

415 Victoria is a home that has received love and attention from it's owners for 38 years. They purchased it in 1979 for $63,000 on loans and goodwill.

San Francisco, CA October 5-7th, 2012 - Event Hightlights

San Francisco, CA October 5-7th, 2012 - Event Hightlights

Marin County, and all it has to offer, is one of the most amazing places to live in all of the United States. I believe one of the key reasons is its close proximity to San Francisco. Not only for commute purposes, more for the rich cultural offerings and yearlong events.

No matter what time of year, our mild weather, allows for all types of citywide events from free concerts to National sporting games to Ballet, Opera and outdoor street fairs.

This coming weekend October 5-7th has it all! Possibly too much so choose wisely if you plan on heading into the city and you might want to travel by public transportation.

725 Pine Street, #201 San Francisco CA 94108 - JUST SOLD!

Just a few short years ago the idea of buying a property in San Francisco in any decent neighborhood for under $500,000 was unthinkable.  What you could afford for under a half of a million dollars was a garage.

Times have changed and while I understand the frustration felt by those who bought during the height of the market or those who experienced a drop in property value - the adjustment in pricing was necessary.

Real Estate values in our unique and desirable corner of the world were out of control and unattainable for most. Personally I like the idea that buyers can find a home in Marin or San Francisco for under .5 million. Granted you are not going to...

Using technology to assist a Bay Area Home Buyer - 7232 Willow Creek SOLD!

7273_willow_creek_vallejo_500x_500 

I'm delighted to share a recent experience with you regarding one of my buyer clients and how our real estate brokerage's adoption and use of cutting edge tools and technology facilitated both their Bay Area home search and home purchase.

I had a buyer client (who was referred to me from a previous client) that was actively serving in the Air Force in Abu Dhabi with plans to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area.    With more than 8,000 miles separating us, there were obvious logistical challenges involved in previewing & inspecting properties, discussing homes, formulating an offer strategy, and ultimately managing the paperwork associated with any home purchase in California.   

Fortunately, we were able to overcome these obstacles...
