Eichler Event: June 15th 10am-4pm 2013 San Rafael


As an Eichler homeowner, I found a nice brochure was placed on my windshield today announcing an Eichler event taking place June 15th  in San Rafael.  About 50 years ago, Joseph Eichler had over 10,000 homes built throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, but now it can be hard to find replacement products for these mid-century marvels. Hudson Street Design of Marin is here to help by hosting an educational day to show off products perfect for our today Eichlers.

Two great properties, same price point, both close to town but completely different cities in Marin County. I talk to buyers every day either moving from San Francisco or across country that want to live in Mill Valley. Mill Valley has so much to offer.

Another happy buyer client closes escrow!  After losing out on two other multiple offer situations my buyer clients were finally able to secure and close on 167 Oak Manor Dr. in Fairfax (they were one of 4 offers). I met this couple two years ago when they attended my First Time Home Buyers Workshop. They took the time to understand the home buying process, save money for their down payment and get pre-approved. With inventory being so low and buyer demand being high, my clients were quick to learn that making their best offer from the get-go was the only way to an offer accepted.

It is a very cute home with high open beamed ceilings, large glass windows and just a quick stroll from downtown Fairfax. This three bedroom two bath two car garage
