3 great painting tips!

paint_tips_by_hilary_davis_realtor_413 

I want to share a few tips I just learned to to make painting easier before, during and after the job.

1: Use a big paint chip or better yet a paint board.  Buy a small can of the paint that you are considering and brush out a board.  Once dried, use it to check out the rooms in different times of day and lighting situations. Some paint brands have these large scale chips already made, if so buy them. This is much easier than a tiny chip.

2: After you finish painting and before you close the can, paint a line around the outside of the can at the level of the remaining paint in the can.  This will let you know how much paint you still have and what the color is.  This is very helpful down the road.

3: If you rub a

51 Wambold Lane Petaluma CA 94952: SOLD!

51_wamboldpetaluma_sold_hilary_davis_realtor_448 

If you can't find the horse property you want in Marin, head to Sonoma County! My client wanted a flat parcel for horses and other animals and a single level home for the family with minimal upgrades needed.  After looking throughout Marin County we opened the search to Sonoma County and that's where we found this gem-51 Wambold Lane- closed at $1,087,500.

horse_arena_51_wambold_hilary_davis_realtor_448 

Set on a little over an acre this property had it all; room for horses, 5 car garage space with car lift, beautifully remodeled single level home, gorgeous view and a huge bonus game room over garage.

I find that when a buyer expands their search area and opens their mind to a different outcome their dream home appears.

I am a firm believer

5 Reasons to Shop for a Home in the Rain

house_hunting_in_the_rain_hilary_davis_realtor_448 

If you are in the market for a home, the winter months can be the very best times to look... especially when it is raining. It may not be fun to get in and out of the car and a multitude of homes with your umbrella and off and on with your shoes, but the hassle may be well worth it. Water can be an enemy to your house and seeing how it interacts with the property and neighborhood can prove to be very insightful.   Here are good 5 reasons to shop for a home while it is raining.

1.       LEAKS:  You get to check for leaks: Roof, gutters, basements and windows.

2.       DRAINAGE: You get to check the drainage. Drainage is often over looked, yet when it starts to rain lack of proper drainage can be a huge

Marin County is known for its incredibly gorgeous open space.  From rolling hills with majestic Oaks to Redwood forests with ferns and water ways.  Marin has trails everywhere allowing us to get into nature and soak up the beauty.

Living in the Lucas Valley area of San Rafael 94903, I hit the dirt trails out here almost every morning and I'd like to share two of my favorite and frequent stretches of earth. I hope you enjoy my photos.  I try to take a few a week.

The Idylberry Trail trail that runs along the base of the Lucas Valley Open Space Preserve is a mellow trail (great for families) with gentle slopes and lots of level walking. I usually access it, after dropping my son at Dixie School, from Mt. Lassen Dr. although many of the streets

687 Larkspur Dr., Healdsburg CA 95448: New Construction in Healdsburg-SOLD!

wine_country_451 

It is hard to find new construction housing in Marin County and impossible to find it under $600,000, so my buyer clients headed north to Healdsburg.  That is where they found D.R. Horton's Sonata; a cute little community of new 2 story homes within walking distance to the chic downtown. My clients bought prior to being built and were able to customize their finishes creating a home perfect for them. The lack of rain kept the project on schedule and the home closed before the end of 2013.

Currently Sonata offers 3 two-story homes for sale  which are energy-efficient, comfortable and durable home designs ranging from 1,492 to 2,035 square feet with 2-4 bedrooms, 2.5

Curbside Christmas tree recycling in Marin County 2014:

christmas_tree_recycle_hilary_davis_realtor_448 

With over 250,000 residents in Marin County, it is a good thing there are so many easy ways to recycle Christmas trees at the curb thus keeping them from going into landfill and then turning the trees into mulch. When I was a child we used to cut all the branches off the tree and toss each one into the fire with a well wish, resolution or prayer for someone or something good to happen in the New Year. Well, now we are green savvy. We have "spare the air" days and a well-organized county wide curbside recycling program to divert waste from our landfills.

Each garbage pick-up department has their own guidelines as to what, where, when and how to dispose of your Christmas tree... so take a
