Modern Cabana acquired by Blu Homes

Often I am asked about adding auxiliary structures to one’s property with an expectation that it would likely entail buying a tin shed from Sears and putting it up some weekend, hoping for no strong winds to blow it over like Little Red Riding Hood’s feeble homes. Fear not, there is a better option.

If you haven’t heard of Modern Cabana in the last almost decade they have been around it’s not too late. Having just been acquired by Blu Homes there is sure to be a great deal more coming out of the genius minds behind them. Check them out here: Elegant, affordable and chic! Not bad for a shed, eh?


And you wonder why it’s tough to find a home you like?

IMG_0414It all comes down to this – a serious lack of inventory! Wonder why? Wonder how it affects you? A good read here from today’s SF Chronicle.

Accuracy and efficiency of Zillow and Trulia questionable

IMG_4036A recent study found that more than 15 percent of homes shown for sale on Zillow and Trulia weren’t actually on the market, and up to 30 percent of homes that were listed for sale in an MLS were not identified by the portals as being on the market.

Enough said. When you want the most up-to-date information, just ask. Me!

My oh my, quite the robust housing market indeed!

06_02_12FSo, you read about the strength of the housing market here and there, you gather that prices are stabilizing and homes in distress (short-sales and REO’s) are decreasing in quantity monthly. All sounds good doesn’t it? And then there is the Bay Area, the wildly robust Bay Area. To wit:

This past Wednesday I listened to offers on my San Anselmo listing at 130 Crescent Road, priced at $995,000. A total of 11 offers submitted, all over asking, some all cash. Crazy! And then yesterday I listened to offers on my San Francisco listing at 2475 42nd Avenue/Taraval, priced at $625,000. 17 offers submitted, 17!! Well over asking also.

So what is the take-away from all of this? Simple! The market is hot, V-E-R-Y hot. Not in recent memory has it been a better time to be a seller. Think about it, and call me if even remotely contemplating selling. What’s that, you want to buy and think there’s no chance to compete? Allow me please to share with you how working together can ensure your offer is not only the best it could be but also have the best chance of success in this wild robust housing market!
