For Sale

It probably comes as no surprise to anyone who lives in the Bay Area and has access to local news reports: The real estate market in San Francisco and all over the Bay Area continues to have rising sales prices caused by fierce demand, and multiple buyers bidding on almost every home or condo listed for sale.  Many homes sell significantly over their asking prices and median sales prices continue to rise rapidly. This has been the story for the last several years. What’s different this...

The San Francisco supervisors are scheduled to review a proposal that would require owners of soft story buildings to retrofit them by 2020.  The proposed plan will require about 3,000 buildings in San Francisco, built before 1978 to undergo seismic retrofits in the next several years. Single family homes and smaller buildings will be exempt from this plan. During the city's voluntary retrofit period, the least expensive project was $8,000 and the most...

Are you ready to be a buyer in San Francisco?  Here are 5 things to consider as you start the buying process:
1. Be Pre-Approved Getting pre-approved before you start searching for your new home is critical.  It will be a guide to help you determine the kind and price of the property you will be searching for.  Because our market is currently moving quickly, getting pre-approved will enable you to write an offer within hours of seeing a property.  Your offer will not be competitive with...

One question that many Sellers overlook when making the decision about who to hire to represent them in the sale of their home:  Would you ever be willing to represent the buyer as well as me?  And the follow on question: How many times have you reprsented both the buyer and the seller in a transaction?  Representing both the buyer and the seller in the transaction is perfectly legal, and some agents make this a business practice.
