748 Appleberry Dr. San Rafael CA 94903---Sold in a few days for $90,000 over asking price!

748_appleberry_sold_hilary_davis_realtor_500 

I helped my clients prepare their home for sale by lining up a painter, yard cleaner, house cleaner, window washer, hauler and carpet installer. We had a tight timeline and the house was ready for me to stage and get on MLS in 6 days!

I hired a professional photographer then blitzed the market. Even in a sellers' market the proper presale steps should not be overlooked. My clients trusted me, and as a team we were able to garnish multiple offers and close in a few business days with an all cash offer.

I know how to prepare and sell homes to get the most money for my sellers and I am happy to share this information with anyone…

The market is competitive, the process is complicated, and you need a trusted partner to help you navigate that. I would highly recommend working with Hilary Davis and Marin Modern.

I just read a very interesting article by Kenneth R. Harney, who writes a syndicated column, The Nation's Housing, (New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Inman News, etc.) titled, "Fannie Mae Making Credit Habits into Mortgage Issue." The article was saying that folks with credit cards are considered either a "revolver" or a "transactor" which is determined by whether they make small or minimum payments on their credit card (revolver) or whether they pay off their credit card debt in full each month (transactor). 

Up to now lenders didn't care which we were as long as we were current on any payments.  Credit reports show exactly that too-whether you are current or whether you are in default or…

Quality hardwood floors and laminates can be a wonderfully hardworking and make for beautiful floors. But many people choose carpet instead, for its cozy warmth. Now you can have both features, thanks to a material that most people associate only with wine bottles and dart boards: cork.

The Comfort Underlay
No, you don't walk on the cork. You put sheets of it under the hardwood or laminate. It acts as a natural insulator, so your floors feel warmer in winter and cooler in summer. If you own a mid-century modern home, you probably have a slab foundation and this is one of the materials that can be used to provide a better walking surface beneath engineered wood flooring or laminates.  It gives a wonderful springy quality to your floor that will relieve…

You have and you love your white walls?  That's ok, just use some bold colors and patterns to give it a very lively personality.  Pick just a few colors and by adding it into some pillows and/or chair cushions, maybe some artwork, candles and fresh flowers that match, you will make everyone who walks into the room smile!  Here's some examples of using some bold colors against the white walls:
