foundation rentals and relocation: Homeowners Tax Deduction Lessens Tax Day Trauma - 05/02/16 06:03 AM
Sometimes life throws curves your way. It can put you into situations you never intended—which may be hard to explain. That’s how it is with me and the tax collector.
As we recently experienced, there’s nothing like Tax Day to bring home the reality of just how many dollars are diverted into government coffers. Instead of quietly resting in our Marin bank accounts where they belong, great bunches of our dollars are dispatched to the tax collector, thinning the ranks of their fellows in the bank. They’ll be left to face the future alone. I’d be tempted to paint a picture of … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: One Key Quality to Seek in Your Tiburon REALTOR® - 05/02/16 05:57 AM
When you find yourself being drawn to the real estate listings, even only to peek, it’s a clue that something big may be on the horizon. Either you’ve begun to think you’ve begun to outgrow your current Marin County home, or you’re just curious about what could be available in case you should decide to upsize, or downsize—or to move on because of a professional change that only just might be hanging there as a possibility…
The tipoff is the twinge of curiosity about those other Marin homes—the ones that are out there on the market this spring. It’s always somewhat interesting … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: Research Reveals — Top 10 Top 10 Real Estate Lists - 05/02/16 05:46 AM
Why it is that we’re drawn to “Top 10” lists in general is a matter we can leave to the psychologists. Suffice it to say that the lists are a staple on the super market tabloids and they’re all over the web. I admit they get more than their share of my own attention, even when my curiosity about a list’s subject matter is negligible. It’s probably because they’re quick to skim through and agree or disagree with…
Since they are so pervasive, it occurred to me that there might be something to learn if we could determine which ones that deal … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: Marin Home Sellers Check Latest Construction News - 05/02/16 05:33 AM
When we are keeping tabs on the Marin County’s real estate scene, it’s only natural to go directly to the portion of the market we are most connected to. If we are a renter or investor, our eye is drawn to trends affecting that segment. Marin home sellers (or potential home sellers) can be counted on to pretty much ignore that information, instead concentrating on the latest single family residential listings, asking prices, and news related thereto.
Yet some trends in one sector can significantly impact the others. That’s the way it is with construction—any kind of construction. Whether it comes in … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: For Marin Sellers, a Pre-Sale Checklist - 04/25/16 05:38 AM
Selling your Marin County home is the kind of major undertaking that has so many facets just deciding where to start can delay liftoff. Since there is no actual “right” place to begin, like other mammoth projects, just digging in anywhere will do. The happy truth is that when you’re selling a home, once momentum gets going, the rest of the pieces tend to fall into place.
To get the ball rolling, here is a pre-sale checklist of major activities that selling your Marin County home will entail. To get started, pick any one:
        Nagging problem elimination. Very few … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: Marin Real Estate Investment “Top 5” Draws - 04/25/16 05:22 AM
Of the investor-friendly possibilities, real estate has some particularly welcoming attributes that have kept it perpetually close to investors’ hearts (and portfolios). This is particularly the case whenever tenuous national and world affairs make the future unnervingly hard to predict.
Forbes magazine is one of the foremost sources that knowledge-thirsty investors consult for ideas and commentary about productive destinations for their extra investment capital; and some of those ideas recently surfaced in a piece on why real estate is “investor-friendly.” They pointed to five major characteristics that continue to attract investors:
      Volatility. Tiburon landlords have a degree of protection from … (1 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: Marin House Hunters Get Welcome Mortgage Rate News - 04/25/16 04:58 AM
The headlines last week had a familiar look to them, but in terms of what they actually signified for readers who might be potential home buyers or sellers in Mill Valley, they really should have triggered a snap-to moment:
“Mortgage Rates Fall to New 2016 Lows,” was the Star Tribune’s headline.  Yahoo Finance echoed that, adding, “Is Now the Time to Buy?” 
“Ho-hum,” readers might have reacted; “same ‘ol, same ‘ol…”
The so what? treatment was also what most media outlets gave the news. After all, haven’t mortgage rates been low for a long time now? So what if rates hit the lowest … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: San Rafael Homeowners Eye Swings and Bridges - 04/25/16 04:50 AM
They’re called “swings” or “bridges”—but they don’t belong on a kindergarten playground. They’re the specialized loans that can help San Rafael home buyers get past the kind of cash crunch that can snag an otherwise perfectly achievable purchase.
This is a timing situation that happens quite frequently; it’s in the nature of residential real estate transactions. Suppose you are selling your Marin County home to an out-of-state buyer. The deal is well on its way to being finalized on the agreed schedule. Meanwhile, you have found a new, bigger place that’s perfect for your family (it’s in San Rafael, too—also in a … (1 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: On the Trail of Future Novato Home Loan Interest Rates - 04/19/16 08:08 AM
A few weeks ago, two pieces of incoming information crossed my screen—items that related to the possible direction in which Novato home loan interest rates might be heading. 
The first came from a big national listing aggregator. It seems that once this outfit gets the idea that you are interested in homes in Novato, they conclude that it’s your wish to establish an ongoing relationship. They then display all the energy and persistence a large corporation can muster to share their meditations about this and that. They will continue to email you with regularity until you call a halt.
Along with other communications, … (0 comments)

foundation rentals and relocation: Top 5 Reasons to Avoid FSBO Apply to Marin Sellers - 04/19/16 08:01 AM
There are Top 10 Lists aplenty that detail just why any Marin County homeowner should think twice before planting one of those For Sale by Owner signs in their front yard. One of them is that when you sell your home all by yourself, the sheer amount of time you’ll have to devote to mastering processes that are already fully handled by full-time real estate professionals is a true waste of time. It’s one wheel that doesn’t need reinventing.
If you are among those considering how you will sell your own Tiburon property this spring, since your time is important, let’s start … (1 comments)
