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.

I meet with my seller clients way before the house hits the market and make a thorough to-do list which almost always includes new paint, new carpet, yard clean-up, repairs deep cleaning etc. Then the home is staged, professionally photographed and extensively marketed. Savvy sellers realize that money spent upfront reaps huge rewards at closing.

It is a great time

New Homes for under $500,000: Just Sold 

Just 50 minutes North East of Marin, one can buy a brand-new home for under $500,000. Yes, it’s true, I just helped my Buyer clients close on a gorgeous 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath home with tons of upgrades for $475,302. I have been bringing buyers to Vacaville for over 15 years as a budget conscious alternative and investor option to Marin County.

As fate had it, my buyer took a new job in Solano County and buying a new home for the same price as a 40-year-old condo in Novato was an easy decision. The home is located at The Vanden Ranch Community on Leisure Town Road. The process was made easy by the Meritage Builder sales team and in house lender.

Christmas Tree Disposal in Marin County:

Marin County does a great job on recycling Christmas trees. Most of the sanitary districts will pick up your tree from the curb on green can pick-up days. There are a few rules like cutting the tree down if it’s over 5 or 6 feet and no flocked trees. Of course, remember to take off all the ornaments, lights and stands. If curbside does not work for you, all Marin County Fire Department stations (through January 21), have an area where you can drop off your tree. Click here for detailed information.

Want to help fund a safe grad night? There is a tree drop fundraiser going on as part of the San Marin High School Safe Grad Fundraiser. A suggested $5 donation ($15 for a flocked tree) at the San Marin High

940 W. California Ave. CA 94941: SOLD!

Congratulations to my Seller clients for hanging in there on a long escrow. Their fantastic lot in Mill Valley’s Marin Terrace neighborhood (940 West California Ave) has closed!

I’m excited for the new owners as their creative vision will soon be realized. This view lot sits amongst million dollar + homes and is close to San Francisco, downtown Mill Valley, open space and the beach. The up-sloping lot allows for gorgeous views of hills, open sky and possibly views of the Bay. I hope I get a chance to walk through the finished home soon.
