759 Tamarack Dr. San Rafael CA 94903 has sold! We received multiple offers and closed for $200,000 over asking price! I had a wonderful time working with the  family on selling the family home. This was an emotional process for the sellers, but they took it step by step and together we got all the right people to prepare the home for sale. The transformation was stunning and the end result at closing was fantastic! I create property websites with high end photography and staging that has wow factor...www.759Tamarack.com

My happy seller gives me 5 stars!

415 45th Street Oakland, CA 94609 - Just Sold!

415 45th Street

2 years, 5 offers and 2 cities! it truly is a sellers market with historically and painfully low inventory. My lovely clients were hyper focused with very specific search criteria. They were also diligent in their search, pro-active and extremely patient. They started looking in a well defined radius in San Francisco but we did not prevail in the competitive multiple offers so they started checking at homes in the East Bay. 

Their main criteria was to find an older home, built before or around 1920. Since their search criteria was very specific it was beneficial when they opened up their search to another city. They asked if I would represent them if they purchased a home in the East Bay and

The #1 Reason to List Your House Today! | MyKCM

Many people believe that selling their house during “the spring buyers’ market” is the best thing to do. Their reasoning is that there will be more buyers than there are during the winter months and, therefore, their house will sell quicker and for a higher price.

Historically, this made sense. However, today’s real estate market is not following the rules of the past.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) measures buyer “foot traffic” each month. It receives data on the number of properties shown to a prospective purchaser by a Realtor® (based on the number of lockboxes used). The data reveals the number of buyers out actively looking for a home, not just window shopping on the internet. NAR explains:

That's because there's a shortage of inventory of homes for sale. This week, the MLS shows 469 listings for single family homes and condos. 204 of them, or 43%, are in contract. Currently,  45% of homes sold in November were on the market for 30 days or less, and an additional 35% sold in 60 days or less. That's a pretty fast-moving market!

If you're moving and have a home to sell, there are choices to make.The easiest way to go, by far, is to buy first, get your new home ready, then move and sell your current home vacant and staged. So, if you have plenty of funds to buy your new home
