4 Thornton Ct. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

Well, after several attempts at other properties, my client’s offer was accepted on 4 Thornton Ct. This property checked all the boxes and in my opinion, was the best property for my buyer. One level ranch with a pool and fantastic outdoor space for entertaining! Once again, I could get my clients offer accepted before the public open houses. Curious how that works…call me.

The market is hard in general to get into because of the lack of inventory. But the market for single level homes that appeal to downsizers is even harder. Why? Because the downsizers are competing with the first-time buyers and up-sizers. The sale to a downsizer can be tricky because they are used to a bigger house and may have

51 Pinheiro Cr. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

I’m so happy for my first-time home buyers that just closed on their gorgeous Marin home. They were able to jump to the head of the line and get their winning offer accepted before any public open houses. This does not happen very often, but occasionally there is a seller that needs to get their home in escrow quickly in order to move forward on their replacement property. Luckily this was the case for us. My buyers acted quickly and met with their awesome lender and as a team, we were able to beat out the competition and get our offer accepted.

51 Pinheiro is a large home that my buyers can grow into as well as share now with family and friends. They love that they can walk to town, are close to

2149 Elderberry Lane San Rafael CA 94903: SOLD!

2149 Elderberry Lane sold for $165,000 over asking price, which makes this home the highest price per square footage sold in the lower portion of Lucas Valley. I thoroughly enjoyed helping prepare the home; yard clean-up, presale inspections, final staging and amazing professional photography! This sale comes as no big surprise, as the home was impeccably maintained, desirably upgraded and located in the highly sought-after Dixie School District near endless acres of open space and trails. The home received multiple offers soon after going on the market and closed for $1,300,000.

The northern area of San Rafael (Terra Linda, Marinwood and Lucas Valley) continues to see rising property values.

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
