Green Eco Home Improvements

The new year usually brings resolution about cutting spending. Consider including home energy efficiency upgrades – a decision that will save money and increase your comfort for as long as you live in your house – among your 2019 resolutions. Here are three ways to get started:

  1.      Energy Audit. Energy auditors test your house to see where you’re losing the most energy and recommend upgrades to improve energy savings and comfort.

  2.      Budget and plan. Prioritize your projects and start with those that bring the greatest saving.

  3.      Quick fixes. Do simple DIY projects – installing LED bulbs, caulking, and weather stripping – that bring immediate savings.

Sleek & Modern with Sensational Views

Sleek, modern, sexy with high-end finishes, and environmentally friendly! Once an ugly duckling this home has been transformed into a show stopper. Every surface has been touched.

The open floor plan, wall of windows and large decks are part of a larger drama where sun drenched days can quickly change to wind and swirling fog that clings to the hills to spectacular sunsets.

25 Canyon San Anselmo sold by Ary Assadi

So excited to get my clients into this beautiful 3BD/2.5BA home at just under 2,100 SF. Built in 1996 this home is absolutely turn-key. The inspections came back with absolutely no issues and the home is located in the most serene woodsy setting in the hills of San Anselmo. We initially began our search for homes in the East Bay, but quickly realized that there were betty deals to have had in Marin. Taking advantage of the slight summertime lull in the market we quickly snatched up this home for $1,200,000. I couldn't be more overjoyed for my clients who now have their new home and enough space to welcome their second child in a couple of months!   Ary Assadi
