Determining the list price for your home is as much of an art as a science. There is no exact formula, simply a range within which the sale price of your house will fall. At any given time there are four factors that affect the sale of your home:
- Location is the single most important factor in determining the value of your home. It's true, location, location, location. Sought after school district, view home, walkability to a town, proximity to parks, shopping and freeway acess, etc.
- Condition of the property affects the price and speed of the sale. Prospective buyers often make purchases based on emotion, so first impressions do count. Optimizing the appearance of your home will maximize the buyer's perception of…

I had the pleasure of representing the buyer on a very unique property in Larkspur. A contemporary home with floor to ceiling windows and an open loft nestled in the hills; it has views of the Bay and the lights at night. It is minutes to downtown Larkspur and Corte Madera and backs to Baltimore Canyon open space. It truly is a special home for a special buyer at an unbelieveable price for Larkspur - $661,000.
If you are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced realtor to help you buy or sell a home, give me a call. I would be happy to assist you.

The Marin real estate market is red hot. Suddenly all cities and neighborhoods are in high demand. Even homes with lots adjacent to 101, or with sweeping views over gas stations or post office roofs, are selling for over asking prices.
Today was a big debate in the news about buyers bidding on and purchasing homes without even seeing them. A bit absurd for most buyers, but a reality for others.
I would say that those buyers fall into two distinct categories: a.) extremely wealthy individuals who own several homes and could afford to lose $1M or $2M should the purchase turn out not to be a good affair. b.) investors that need to move fast and don't have time to look at homes before offers…

Golden Gate Bridge no longer takes cash at toll booth starting March 27, 2013. In effort to save the bridge district money ($16.8 million over the next eight years) and speed up the traffic flow, all bridge crossers from Marin County will be paying their tolls electronically. Also, for the first time ever there will now be a carpool lane (second lane from the right). Please check this link for the carpool rules.
Basically there are several methods for paying the toll.
1: Open a Fas Track account : This is great for those who frequently cross the bridge and want a discounted price and are willing to prepay an account.
2: Pay-By-Plate : This is good for those who cross less frequently but want the fee charged…

Today's SF Chronicle ran a most interesting article on the rebounding real estate market. In brief, buyers are vying for limited inventories of properties which is creating bidding wars with multiple offers on properties and area median home prices rising 24.6% over last year. The article contributes the surge to an improving economy, job growth (read that as buyer confidence again), which is extremely strong in the SF Bay Area. Therefore, the San Francisco Bay Area seems to be the hottest market in the U.S. right now.
