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.

If you are wanting new construction and have a limited

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.

Another happy Buyer Client! 80 Roundtree Blvd. San Rafael, CA 94903: SOLD!

Helping clients find the perfect new home is a joy I never tire from. I had the recent pleasure of helping my buyer client search for, find and close on a beautiful new home in a difficult buyers’ market. It took several offers and much persistence, but in the end the property my client closed on was exactly what we were looking for-single story, Dixie School district and in Marinwood.

Over the years I have done many real estate transactions in Marinwood and like this one, in the Roundtree Complex. This area of San Rafael is appealing because of the award-winning school district, proximity to open space, fantastic weather, affordability and easy access for commuting (just

16 D Oliva Dr. Novato CA 94947: SOLD!sold16-oliva-dr_hilary_davis_500

What a pleasure it was to help my Seller clients prepare and sell their condo. With my seller on board, I got the unit properly prepared, staged, professionally photographed and on the market in record time. This was important to them as they had an out of town job offer and had to act fast. The unit showed beautifully and received multiple offers and sold quickly with an all cash offer.

I was not surprised as the location is fantastic and the views beautiful plus it's a desirable 2 bedroom 1.5 bath end unit in the Parkhaven Complex.

If you, or someone you know, is thinking about selling please have them call me for a no obligation free consultation. Doing things right pre-sale will make all the difference
