Over Asking in Berkeley?

Bay Area Sellers are in luck


This area is not only popular because of its beauty, cultural diversity weather, and fantastic food; it’s also one of the most economically prosperous locations in California. Compitition for homes here is stiff.

My last two listings sold in a matter of days for way over the asking price. It’s not just because I’m a super agent–all though I modestly confess that I’m a darn good one and you’d be wise to hire me–it’s that; right now is a particularly good time to sell. 

You’ve heard it before, I know, but let’s review:  Lots of buyers and not enough inventory. I’m just saying it’s a good time for your home to be on the market if you thinking of selling.

Here’s a graphic from California Association of Realtors showing you the over asking stats in 2013.



As I indicated, my sellers have had some amazing successes and I’d be honored to help you, too, but whether you’re moving in or out of this amazing Bay Area, I’m here to help. 

For SELLERS, I’ll help you prepare and market your home for sale that will give it the widest appeal and best exposure; thus attracting a bevy of buyers and the best chance for multiple offers and competitive bidding. To learn more, go to go to What’s Next Homes.

For BUYERS I’ll set up an REAlert account that will search the MLS real estate site–using requirements that you provide–for properties that meet your needs.  Once found, pictures and details will be delivered directly to your email courtesy of Coldwell Banker! 

It’s the best way for you to get a look at first-time-on-the-market properties; and this saves you wasted time and disappointment that happens when you find the perfect home but discover it’s already been sold, a common occurance when using the usual home finding sites like Trulio, Zillow, etc.  They are fun to search, but their information is often out of date. Not so with REAlert.
