Elections: When Having Fun is REALLY IMPORTANT

thank-heaven-for-little-girls-statuary-in-nancys-garden2

It’s easy to get dismayed by the tenor of the times during election years. The negatives in life are explored in great detail. Divisions in people and ideologies are enhanced and highlighted. What’s going wrong and what we need to be afraid of is stressed. Life doesn’t seem worth living, yet we know it is. Early this morning, for instance, I discovered that two friends became grandparents. A healthy baby was born. Young parents discovered a new kind of fierce love. You know that this isn’t news, it’s life, and thank goodness. News shocks us. Daily life runs the gamut from boring to exhilarating, but it rarely shocks. So it’s important when we’re asked to focus on the negative side of life to look for ways to feel good. Here’s some fun local activities that might help you do just that.

Remember, too, if you’re thinking of selling your home, there’s still time to list it before the end of the year. 2016 has been a banner year for home sales, but we don’t know what 2017 will bring. Right now, home prices are still high and inventory is low. Call me and let’s talk about ways we can market your property for top dollar.

I’d love to help you buy or sell an East Bay home. It would be my pleasure.

If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Just call me.  I’m easy to get a hold of.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone or text 510-418-1306  and you’ll probably reach me. I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

August: The Best of Times, the Worst of Times

I was born in August, and as a result had mixed feelings about the arrival of my birthday.  On the one hand: party, presents, cake! On the other hand: School was right around the corner. As I grew I began to understand that adults (unless they were teachers–and, as I later learned, there was no free time for them either), never had the long, lazy summer vacations that I enjoyed as a boy.

Growing up was always something we kids longed to do, but little did we know that one of the things we’d wave good-bye to, besides hairless skin and being really short, were summer vacations.

I noticed to my horror that in my teenage and college years, when I needed money to use the car and go on dates, my summer vacation would have to be subsumed by my summer job or no dates for me. Then, in my young adulthood when I worked in the corporate world, vacations were scheduled, and usually only lasted a week or so.

As a real estate agent, when work and time off can happen anytime, I learned the value of small vacations, staycations, and keeping my ear to the ground to find interesting things to do on a daily basis no matter how my schedule looked.

So, speaking of that, here are a few fun things that caught my eye. These Bay Area activities will ease our way as we leave August behind and welcome the beginning of September.

How to Have a Successful Garage Sale

garage sale

If you’re thinking of selling your home, the first step is to strip it down.  You don’t want to haul the same old junk to your new home, and having a clean, simple,  clutter-free home is visually more attractive to buyers. And since weather is a factor, summertime is the perfect time to get rid of clutter.

For as long as it has been true that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, garage sales have benefited both buyer and seller. So before throwing your own worldly possessions on the front lawn, check out the following suggestions for garage sale success:

 What to Sell

  • Because variety is the spice of life, garage sale shoppers prefer sales that feature a little bit of everything. If you have nothing but used clothing and toys to sell, wait until you can pull together a few more items.
  • When deciding what to sell, never underestimate the value for absolute junk. If you haven’t used something in the past year, put it up for sale.
  • Since dealers and antique collectors frequent garage sales, proudly display one-of-a-kind items.
  • Dressers, bookcases, baskets, tables, toys, and tools attract traffic.
  • If you sell appliances, make sure they work. Have an outlet handy so buyers can plug in that old TV set before buying it.

 How to Price

  • Put price tags on items. Customers may assume that unmarked items are out of their price range.
  • Be prepared to haggle. Price everything at twice the price you really want for it so you can accept offers for half price. Most garage sale enthusiasts love to negotiate. But it’s okay to say, “I’m firm on that price.”
  • Take a hint from retail vendors who mark down slow sellers. If an item doesn’t move, ask a little less.
  • Don’t charge more than half the retail value of your merchandise. In fact, most Web garage sale sites recommend pricing items at 10 to 30 percent of retail.

 How to Display

  • Clean everything. Dirty dishes fetch a far lower price than their clean counterparts.
  • Large items bring the most foot traffic. If you sell your furniture early, ask if you can keep it until the end of the day.
  • Clothing on racks sells higher than similar items thrown on a blanket. If possible, hang a line in your garage or buy a portable rack. People who dig through boxes expect to pay much less for those items.
  • Clearly mark your sales area. If you have a sale in your garage, cover the lawn mower, shovels, and rakes.
  • Attract attention with eye-catching balloons and signs.

How to Advertise

  • Place an ad in a weekly or daily newspaper. If you partner with neighbors on a mutually convenient weekend, you can usually convince them to share the cost with you.
  • Make plenty of bold, bright, neatly lettered signs. Place them at strategic locations, directing traffic to your neighborhood, street, and house. But don’t forget to take them down when the sale is over!
  • Don’t sponge off of your neighbors’ advertising. If he places ads and posts signs for his own sale, offer to split costs, or wait for another day to sell your stuff.

When to Sell

  • Check the weather forecast before planning your sale. Even if you plan to have your sale indoors, inclement weather may keep your customers at home.
  • Saturday is often the best day for a yard or garage sale, though this varies regionally. In some places, people tend to favor Thursday or Friday sales. If you are new to an area, ask around to see which days are the most popular for sales.

What to Do with Leftovers

  • Store unsold items for another day. What isn’t of interest now may be in high demand next year.
  • Make arrangements to have unsold items picked up by the Salvation Army or other charitable organization. Most provide receipts for taxable donations. To calculate the fair market value of donated items, talk to your accountant. You will probably be surprised by how much you can claim,
  • Give the items away. What doesn’t sell is usually snapped up when placed near a sign that says, “FREE.”

Good luck! Call me for step two of selling your home.

If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Just call me.  I’m easy to get a hold of.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone or text 510-418-1306  and you’ll probably reach me. I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

Secrets of Winning the Offer War (Part 4 of 4)

handshake_at_meeting

Here is Part Four of the four part series on winning the offer war. If you missed the first two,  here are the links to Part One about “PRICE”,  Part Two about “TERMS“, and Part Three about “CONTINGENCIES”  Today we’ll be looking at the third factor:

PERSONAL TOUCH

  • Home sellers sell for a myriad of reasons. If your offer is for a home where the seller has been resident, you may assume that back when they bought the house, it was with plans for the future on their minds and optimism in their hearts.  Whatever happened between then and now, people lived in the home and hold a deep appreciation for the shelter from the storm, real and metaphorical, that it provided.  Many sellers hope the home they’re leaving will be someone else’s fresh start.  Presenting yourself as the one who will appreciate and care for the home is a way of winning hearts and minds.  It’s what agents call a “love letter,” sharing with the seller your admiration for the home, and vision of what it will be like for you to live there.
  • Have your agent present the offer in person to the sellers, if that’s possible. Agents in this area know each other– and experienced agents tend to respect and trust offers brought from someone they know has been in the business a while. Offers from such are usually clear and competent.

The tips in this four part series will help you understand exactly what it takes to create a competitive winning offer.  There is a fifth ingredient, and that’s your real estate agent. I hope you will consider me a member of your home buying team.  Together, following this plan as best we can, we’ll create beautiful winning offers.

If you’re pursuing your dream of home ownership, or if you want to sell an East Bay home, I can help.  Summer is a great time to buy or sell a home.

Also, if you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Just call me.  I’m easy to get a hold of.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone or text 510-418-1306  and you’ll probably reach me. I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

Secrets to Winning the Offer War (Part 3 of 4)

home sales

Here is Part Three of the four part series on winning the offer war. If you missed the first two,  here are the links to Part One about “PRICE” and Part Two about “TERMS.”  Today we’ll be looking at the third factor:

CONTINGENCIES

Once signed by buyer and seller, an offer becomes a contract.  Both sides are legally committed to its terms, which include advance agreement on how the contract can be cancelled.  These provisions are called contingencies; usually the main ones are for uncertainties buyers have about their financing, and about the property’s condition.

  •  Sellers tend to favor the highest offer, as we’ve noted before, but the best-informed sellers also pay close attention to an offer’s chances of leading to a successful sale.
  •  Strong pre-approval limits financing uncertainties.  In the present market, many sellers provide pre-sale disclosures and professional inspection reports.
  •  When advance information is extensive, sellers and their agents might read contingencies as unwarranted uncertainties.  Many offers are being presented just now, with neither financing nor inspection contingencies.
  •  The best-prepared buyer will have made a careful assessment of any risk in entering a purchase contract without contingencies.  A seasoned agent (like myself) can be a big help here.  If you MUST include contingencies, try to make them as short as possible.

Next week I will discuss the last, and very important forth factor, PERSONAL TOUCH, which I will cover in Part Four posting August 3rd.

If you’re pursuing your dream of home ownership, or if you want to sell an East Bay home, I can help.  Summer is a great time to buy or sell a home.

Also, if you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Secrets to Winning the Offer War (Part 2 of 4)

Businessman signs contract behind home architectural model

Here is Part Two of the four part series on winning the offer war. If you missed Part One, here’s the link to the piece about “Price”. Today we’ll be looking at the second factor:

TERMS:

  • Prominent among the details is the answer to, “How will you be paying?”  All cash with no need to seek approval for a loan is a strong offer, but some Sellers will accept financing contingencies when attached to a higher price. 
  • If you include a loan, always, always, always use a local lender.  Why? Because local lenders  KNOW THIS MARKET.  Most of the delays, disruption and loan failure come through an out of area lender’s unfamiliarity with local market conditions and regulations.
  • Sellers and listing agents will be on the lookout for ways your loan might go wrong.  Make your down payment as high a percentage of the asking price as possible—lenders are happiest making loans where you have at least 20% of your own money in the deal.
  • Date your close of escrow as close to the offer date as possible, which brings us to the third factor, Contingencies, which I will cover in Part Three posting July 22nd.

If you’re looking to write a winning offer, or to sell an East Bay home, I can help.

If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Secrets to Winning the Offer War (Part 1 of 4)

Businessman signs contract behind home architectural model

TIRED OF NOT WINNING THE 0FFER WAR? HERE IS THE FIRST OF FOUR SECRETS FOR SUCCESS.

In a seller’s market, competition can be tough.  How do you get the edge when writing an offer? What do listing agents, and their clients, look for?  The three basics of a winning offer are Price, Terms and the Personal Touch.  If you’ve already been making offers this won’t be new to you, but if you haven’t won out yet, let’s take a closer look at the first of the three factors. Today we’ll take a short look at:

PRICE:
When Sellers see the dollars at the top of an offer’s first page there’s no escaping it: more are better.  In the present market, competition routinely drives selling prices well up over the original listed price…and yet, the highest offer isn’t always the one that gets accepted.  An offer is a contract hoping to be signed.  Real estate contracts are full of details.  Some of the details are fixed by law, and others you can manipulate to make your offer the one that turns into a contract.  These are the terms. We’ll cover those in part two which I will post on Friday July 15th.  Stay tuned!

The REAL magic of Staging

staging

Now You See It, Now You Don’t

In the early days of my career, agents rarely staged a home. Now they do, and after touring hundreds of homes here’s something I’ve learned: Don’t trust your eyes.

Stagers are gifted in bringing out the best in a home and downplaying any flaws.

In a small home, for example, you might not notice that the chest of drawers in the bedroom and the T.V. in the living room are missing.

Why? Because adding those pieces add clutter and make a room look smaller.

Well-placed mirrors, too, add an impression of space to small rooms.

Stagers don’t just sell homes, they sell idealized lifestyles, so after you take a look at any staged home for sale, don’t be fooled. If an entertainment area and good clothes storage are important to you, make sure the home you have your eye on will accommodate them.

If you’re looking to buy or sell an East Bay home, I can help.
If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Don’t Underestimate the Value a Real Estate Professional Brings to a Home Sale

multitakser

Mike James, President of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the San Francisco Bay Area wrote this, and I couldn’t have said it better myself, so here is his message in its entirety.

Well-known actor, humorist and economist Ben Stein once wrote a column entitled “Pieces of Heaven.” It was a love letter of sorts about the many homes he has bought, sold and enjoyed over the years – and the many real estate professionals who helped him find his little bit of paradise each time.

The properties were located all over the country – the California coast, Beverly Hills, the Eastern seashore and Washington D.C., to name a few. The one thing they all had in common, Mr. Stein said: “We could never have gotten them without brokers.”

“Every time I use an agent, I am amazed at how hard they work…always available around the clock,” he wrote. “They handle even the most minute details like inspections, and the big ones like financing. They show endless patience. They are relentlessly upbeat. They need to be a diplomat, design expert, financier, psychologist, surrogate parent, and often surrogate spouse.”

Some sellers may think you just stick a for-sale sign in the front lawn and buyers will beat a path to your door. Guess again! Real estate professionals develop comprehensive marketing plans, take professional photos, arrange inspections and appraisers, oversee home staging, hold open houses, place print and online ads, reach out to their networks to find potential buyers, and negotiate with buyers’ agents to get the best price and to get the deal closed.

Pre-sale activities

A Listing Agent’s work starts with researching the current market to aid the Seller in determining the right list price. They provide information about professionals who can help get the home ready for sale, arrange and develop disclosure packages for potential buyers.

Before any potential buyer sets foot inside the home the Listing Agent will work with the Seller to find out the Seller’s preferences regarding a menu of options as to how to best market the home.  Depending upon the Seller’s preferences, the Listing Agent will assist in choosing a stager and/or a landscaper to make the property look its best inside and out; to have multiple photos and/or a virtual tour, post signs, create a website as well as put together compelling marketing material to highlight it’s positive attributes and features.

Maximum exposure marketing

Putting the home on the local MLS is just the start of what goes into effectively marketing a home listing. Real estate professionals may create and distribute a just-listed postcard, create and send out open house invitations, submit ads to various publications, promote the home to the Listing Agent’s network locally and regionally, as well as use relocation referral networks to promote the home to relocating buyers from around the country.

And because 90 percent of buyers begin their search for a home on the Internet, according to the National Association of REALTORS®, Listing Agents will promote the property on many of the country’s top real estate websites. Through web syndication, Coldwell Banker listings, for example, are featured on an unsurpassed 700-plus websites around the world – including Coldwell Banker’s exclusive websites.

Open houses and tours

Listing Agents may host a broker’s open tour to let agents working with potential buyers see the property first before holding any public open house. They may canvass the neighborhood to invite people to the open house, as well as alert past client referrals about the listing. In addition, they will schedule individual showings to let more serious potential buyers tour the home personally and privately. Listing Agents will then follow up with those potential buyers and their agents to gauge their reaction and discuss next steps.

Negotiate offers/acceptance

Once a buyer or multiple buyers make an offer, Listing Agents will schedule an offer presentation with the seller, presenting the offer(s), discussing the terms and the seller’s options.  At the Seller’s direction the Listing Agent will negotiate terms on behalf of the Seller and prepare contract documents. They coordinate and attend inspections and work with all parties to help resolve problems and challenges relating to the property.

Last but not least, the Listing Agent will help secure all of the necessary paperwork and coordinate the closing.

There is much more to successfully selling a home than putting up a sign. A professional REALTOR® can make the process seem so much easier through their hard work, their expertise and their attention to details. Buying and selling a home is often the largest financial transaction that any of us will ever make. But with the help of a real estate professional, the next generation of buyers and sellers can find their own “pieces of heaven” – just as Ben Stein has been able to achieve so often over the years.

If you’re looking to buy or sell an East Bay home, I can help you from both sides of the table. Locally, I can help you buy or sell your East Bay home. If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world.

What the Housing Market and Life Have in Common: Change is Inevitable

030316housing_1280x720

The lack of mobility in the current market is on everyone’s mind.  Why are inventories so low? Why are homeowners reluctant to sell? Why, when the Bay Area is rich with jobs, can’t these workers find homes to live in? There’s a lot of reasons, and the latest California Association of Realtors collection of polls have a few answers, and some good news.

  • 52 % of homeowners think it is a good time to sell..
  • 48% of renters plan to buy a home in the future
  • 10% want to buy in the next year
  • 95% see advantages in home ownership
  • Mortgage rates are still low (Week ending 6/2/2016):
    • 30-yr. fixed: 3.66% fees/points: 0.5%
    • 15-yr. fixed: 2.92% fees/points: 0.5%

All good news, and, anecdotally, I’ve noticed that local prices seem to be stabilizing. To Sum Up:
Home sellers think it’s a great time to sell, most renters are planning to buy, rents, locally, are climbing, and everyone agrees it’s a great idea to own your own home.

So what’s going on? Well there’s a couple things.  First, the majority of homeowners age 55+ are very satisfied with their homes.  Many have decided to “age in place” which takes their homes off the potential market.

Second, Millennials, the most likely first time home buyers, are often not able to buy. Student loan debt and lack of “good” jobs, ones that are full time and pay a living wage, get in the way of their dreams of home ownership.

But, as we all know, life is all about change.  The home that felt comfortable at 55 might eventually seem too big when just one or two of you are trying to maintain a home built for five. Time to SELL!

Innovative new businesses and ways of acquiring seed money to develop fresh ideas, (like GoFundMe) has helped turn some of the 39% of kids still living with their parents into entrepreneurs and potential home buyers.

There are so many ways life can be, so when change happens for you, and you need an agent, REMEMBER:
