Summer may not be officially over for another week or so but in my mind it does end with Labor Day here in the States. And Mother Nature didn't waste anytime in reminding us in the Bay Area that it was drawing to a close. Saturday morning the alarm via thunder and lightning awoke most of us just ...
Boy oh boy has it been a busy week. Unfortunately it hasn't been all positive news. Last week I wrote an offer on a home in Hayward as did many many others. It was listed at $264k and my client offered just under $300k on this 3 bedroom, 2 bath "flipped" home with a pool near Tennyson. After a mu...
It's been a few busy weeks since I've posted and I apologize. But it's been a good kind of busy few weeks. We are still massaging along the two income properties on Buena Vista Avenue. Slowly but surely they are inching closer to a closing date in late September. All but the loan contingencies ha...
Another week has passed and two more to go before I go on a brief vacation, (a long weekend). I hope many of you reading this got a chance to visit Alameda's Park Street Art and Wine Festival. It was packed, I hear upwards of 100,000 packed the 4 block long affair over the two days. While I'm loo...
I erased my blog post I originally had planned to post after I received a call Sunday night from a couple who are clients of mine. I received a call from my clients that recently moved into their condominium that they bought a few years back. This couple happened across my website about 3 years a...
It's been a pretty run of the mill week for Nancy and I. Our townhome listing is set to close early next week. The activity on our triplex and duplex has been brisk. We received an offer on each property. Unfortunately neither was acceptable to the seller as written. Besides, the other agent wrot...
It has become apparent, that there are just not enough hours in a day to get everything accomplished. Both Nancy and I have a number of buyers we are currently showing homes to while managing our own listings. What I see suffering is my posting to our blog that I have been doing twice a week so I...
We hope everyone had a safe and sane Fourth of July. The City of Alameda's 4th of July parade just keeps on getting better. This year it had close to 150 entries if memory serves me right. I sure would hate to be a judge and have to pick out a handful for awards. I can't even pick out my favorite...
Last Saturday's golf outing was a great day as is any day on the links. Aside from a hiccup in everyone's start times the day went off without a hitch and everyone had a good time. The Chuck Corica municipal course was a hub of activity that day. There were two other tournaments being played and ...
I sure wish there was a good and easy to use speech recognition software available. I mean the kind you don't have to retype half of what you spoke over. I've toyed with the built-in program under windows accessibility but maybe I just hadn't fine tuned it. The way I pick and peck on a keyboard a...
