I have to admit that in a toss up for best picture between The Social Network and The King's Speech I was neutral.  I think they were both fantastic, with great scripts and acting for both. However, when it comes to investing in real estate, "The Social; Network" wins hands down. You are probably...

We have been very surprised by the great response we are getting from our lenders regarding "lender training" which we recently added to our list of services. We have been training consultants since 1995, contractors were added to the mix in 1998, and most recently we added the lender training. L...

Question: We wrote our offer over a week ago. Why hasn't the listing agent presented it yet? The offer has expired. Should we withdraw? Are they playing games and using this to get a better offer? Answer: Good question. In our area if a seller or agent believes there are going to be multiple offe...

I have a Menlo Park short sale listing that is in escrow. Chase was the original lender and is now the servicer of the loan.  What that means is that after Chase made the loan they sold it to another investor. It could have been sold to Fannie or Freddie, Wall Street, another bank, or an individu...

  The Willows neighborhood in Menlo Park has always been one of my favorite first time home buyer neighborhoods. Prices are very expensive in Menlo Park and Palo Alto, mostly due to our "landlocked" geography on the San Francisco Bay Peninsula. Menlo Park is adjacent to Stanford University, but m...

Couple of years ago I met with a real estate agent from Palo Alto.  She showed me the house and asked me for my opinion.  As always, I asked her what was the seller's goal as it was a Trust Sale.  "They are looking to sell it for low 900K." I had a great feeling about the project, so I did my hom...
