687 Cedarberry San Rafael, CA 94903 - Has It's 2nd Owner

 687cb-front_400_01

687 Cedarberry in the Marinwood/Lower Lucas Valley neighborhood is an original Eichler built in 1957 with all the other Eichlers but this one is unique. My clients will be the second owner of 687 Cedarberry Lane in its 59 years in existence. During our inspections we found this original letter from Eichler pinned to the wall in the garage.

My clients were not familiar with the Eichler homes or the cult like following they attract but after just a few short weeks of touring Eichler and other style homes they quickly understood and fell in love with the concept and style of living that the Eichler homes offer.

They appreciate the indoor/outdoor living and how the homes are

Besides the right Marin neighborhood, right Marin school district and right commute distance to work, one of the most important things a Marin Buyer is looking for is an energy efficient home.  That means a home that has energy star appliances, energy efficient lighting, a cost saving HVAC heating/air conditioning, water saving plumbing fixtures, water saving landscaping as well as an eco friendly community.  Buyers in Marin are willing to pay for these eco upgrades!

Did you know that these few changes can save 50% a year in utility/water costs?  Yup, 'tis true and more and more buyers are looking to have lower monthly utility bills not only because of their eco friendly consciousness but also that savings allows them to have an

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 considering selling.

What a blast I had working with my wonderful buyer clients who are now the proud owners of 82 Duran Dr. San Rafael, CA 94903. It especially warms my heart when my clients share their appreciation.

Buyer writes on YELP:

Working with Hilary Davis at Marin Modern was everything we hoped for. What could have been a stressful and difficult process, she made enjoyable and easy. She is there every step of the way, is always available for questions and is a great listener for what you want. 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.

82 Duran is a hip 4 bedroom 2 bath updated Eichler home nestled at the back end of

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 late on any and they never showed what we
