77 Cypress Drive Fairfax CA 94930 – Just Sold!

77 Cypress Drive - Sold! Enjoying this moment! The moment after you get the call from the title company that you are “On Record”. The moment that all the hard work and dedication you and your clients, contractors, cleaners, stagers and buyer’s agents put it to make this moment a reality.

The lifecycle of a home sale starts from the moment your clients sign the listing agreement. Paperwork is signed, plans are discussed and made and everyone has a part. It’s a team effort and when those well-made plans and team work all comes together everyone wins!

1404 Buchanan St. in Novato CA 94947 has SOLD! This single level 4/2 house fit the wish list for a lot of buyers; my one and only Sunday open house was packed! We received six offers, all over asking, and closed for $41,000 over the ask price. The market for single level homes under $800,000 is huge. However, even in this hot market proper presentation and stellar marketing is a must.

Savvy sellers realize that money spent upfront reaps huge rewards at closing.

It is a great time

The real estate market is moving more and more into a complete recovery. Home values are up. Home sales are up. Distressed sales (foreclosures and short sales) have fallen dramatically. It seems that 2017 will be the year that the housing market races forward again.

However, there is one thing that may cause the industry to tap the brakes: a lack of housing inventory. While buyer demand looks like it will remain strong throughout the summer, supply is not keeping up.

Here are the thoughts of a few industry experts on the subject:

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR:

"Sellers are in the driver's seat this spring as the intense competition for the few homes for sale is forcing many buyers to be aggressive in their offers. Buyers are showing

Two Things First Time Home Buyers Need to Know

Buyers entering the real estate market are more savvy today than ever before.  Prior to the internet age, buyers relied heavily on their Realtor to feed them information and listings and wouldn’t even begin their search until meeting with and committing to a Realtor. Now, at least 90% of buyers start their search online, research the process and properties for months, often years before calling a Realtor.

Customer Loyalty

In this new age of information, we as Realtors need to work even harder to find and maintain buyer clients and we do this by providing value and insight into the process. We offer our knowledge of the specific cities and neighborhoods in our market, inside scoop on upcoming listings, and our
