palo alto real estate specialist: Palo Alto Buyers, Don't Let the Home Warranty Contractors Say No - 04/13/13 06:07 AM

When buying or selling a home in Palo Alto many people are advised by their agents to purchase a home protection plan. These plans are insurance policies against breakage of many systems and fixtures in the home. The executive summary is if something breaks during the term of the policy, (one year which can be renewed) you can call the insurance company and they will send an independent contractor out to fix or replace the broken item. The owner just pays a $50-$60 fee for the service, and all other expenses for that item are covered. Sound great right?
Well, … (0 comments)

palo alto real estate specialist: When Selling a Palo Alto Home You Can Never Have Too Many Flowers - 04/05/13 04:52 AM

When selling a home in Palo Alto I don't believe there is such a thing as too many fresh flowers, especially in the spring time. I will concede that it is probably better not to have the home look like a funeral parlor, but short of that, nothing makes a Palo Alto home for sale more appealing than fresh flowers.
Home buying may be the biggest financial investment a person makes in his/her lifetime, but it is still ultimately an emotional decision. Walnut floors and quartz counter tops may be on a buyer's wish list, but the impact of coming … (0 comments)

Are you selling a home in Palo Alto? If so you may take a look at the market conditions and think, I don't have to be nice to the buyers, they should be grateful I am letting them buy my house. This would be a reasonable conclusion considering that so many homes have multiple offers and most buyers are paying 10-20%+ over list price with no contingencies. Seems like a Palo Alto seller's paradise right? Not so fast.
Yes, there are more buyers than sellers in Palo Alto right now. Yes, it seems like sellers are in total control; but we … (0 comments)

palo alto real estate specialist: Living in Palo Alto has options in town and near for great Theatre - 01/17/13 01:58 AM
Theatre is alive in the Bay Area. Not only does Palo Alto have many options, but also not far is San Jose, which is also full of viable options.
 

 
San Jose Repertory Theatre shows current, beautiful shows. Their seasons consist of 7 shows. For the last two years, this has included Rick Lombardo's, the artistic director, adaptation of The Christmas Carol. The actors are consistently superb. The house is a comfortable size where the view is great from almost any seat.
 
To make theatre more accessible they offer a number of events and discounts.
