We are seeing tremendous market corrections. While the rest of the country is also seeing an uptick, the SF Bay Area is having a meteoric rise in prices.
Almost weekly, a someone asks, "What is causing the steep rise in prices?".
The difference in a nutshell: jobs.
Interest rates are great nationally and local inventory is low- now that the distressed properties are drying up.
However, the biggest difference that sets the Bay Area a part: Bay Area companies began outfitting for hiring two years ago by acquiring office space and building out those spaces. Technology, Investment and Medical Science sectors were poised to hire by early 2012.
By Spring of 2012, new recruits began to look for housing in San Francisco and further…
In the wake of the financial crisis and recent recession, millions of would-be homebuyers with foreclosures, short sales, or bankruptcies listed in their credit histories naturally wonder as to their prospects for new mortgage financing. Since lending requirements vary from product to product (such as conventional to FHA) and because investor guidelines are in constant flux, there is no easy answer as to which options a given borrower may have. Another complicating factor is "lender overlays." These are additional requirements that lenders routinely impose on the loans they underwrite in an effort to manage portfolio risk. Examples range from higher credit scores, limitations to loan sizes, increased assets, etc., and these will be adjusted…

Determining the list price for your home is as much of an art as a science. There is no exact formula, simply a range within which the sale price of your house will fall. At any given time there are four factors that affect the sale of your home:
- Location is the single most important factor in determining the value of your home. It's true, location, location, location. Sought after school district, view home, walkability to a town, proximity to parks, shopping and freeway acess, etc.
- Condition of the property affects the price and speed of the sale. Prospective buyers often make purchases based on emotion, so first impressions do count. Optimizing the appearance of your home will maximize the buyer's perception of…
I had the pleasure of representing the buyer on a very unique property in Larkspur. A contemporary home with floor to ceiling windows and an open loft nestled in the hills; it has views of the Bay and the lights at night. It is minutes to downtown Larkspur and Corte Madera and backs to Baltimore Canyon open space. It truly is a special home for a special buyer at an unbelieveable price for Larkspur - $661,000.

Just Sold! A fantastic Montauk style beach house perched on the tip of the ridge between San Anselmo and Terra Linda with views stretching across the San Pablo Bay. My clients got a SCREAMEN deal on this house and are very excited to be migrating from blustery New York to warm Marin County. This house boasted 4+ bedrooms, a game room, pool, a seperate guest cottage with bath and a half acre. Because of the circumstances of the seller, this transaction required patience, skill, expectation management and compromise. I'm proud that my hard work and patience helped my clients (and friends) transition to their new life of outdoor activities, marin county lifestyle and slowing down from NY time to CA time. Congratualtions!
