I used to work across the street from San Jose City Main Post Office. Just before the end of day shift they hired extra security guards to keep those last minute madness drivers to park on private premises. Guards come with flash lights, florescent hand signs with big arrows to discourage those trying to meet the deadline. It was like a madness parade. I rarely could get off work before 8 PM. That day I find a legitimate excuse to leave before the traffic jam,
As a realtor I have learned not to contact people around this time of the year. Most realtors, clients all seem wait until last minute. As for me I sent mine to my CPA in February and she finally got to it filed two weeks ago. She told me her company got a lot of new customers and this year takes longer. She was relieved when I told her I promise not to send referrals anymore. Normally we are done by mid March.
Are you one of those procrastinating until last minute?
I've called San Francisco South Bay home for over many years. We love this area and all it has to offer, and I enjoy sharing what I know about homes. I documented in several books about Silicon Valley history.
I have much expertise in real estate and technology...please give me a call.
