Zoom Call With Katerina Gasset  5 Latest Things Happening in SEOThis weeks Zoom Call was for me at least a Throwback to the early event called RainCamps.  The information came out at a pace that was fast and furious and while taking notes, I would wonder if I would ever understand what was being offered.The call was given by Katerina Gasset and for all that know here, for years she and here husband would offer information to make us better bloggers.

We serve Santa Clara County and provide probate real estate services.   What that means is we list homes in probate, trusts, and conservatorships.  We do not, despite many requests to do so, represent buyers on the properties we list or any other probate homes. We focus on representing sellers exclusively.    Probate Real Estate Services vs Probate Legal Services We received a call last week from a person who said “I watched your video on Conservatorships and have a few questions. My name is [blank] and my number is xxx-xxx-xxxx.”   We know the Internet is where most people go to look for answers. We also know from experience that many people who call or request a consultation have missed a few facts from our website, in terms of what we do - the service we provide....

As you follow the news, you’re likely seeing headlines discussing what’s going on in today’s housing market. Chances are high that some of the more recent storylines you’ve come across mention terms like cooling or slowing when talking about where the market is headed. But what do these terms mean? The housing market today is anything but normal, and it’s still an incredibly strong sellers’ market, especially when compared to the few years leading up to the pandemic. With that in mind, what can previous years tell us about today’s real estate market and if it’s truly slowing? We’re Still Seeing an Above Average Number of Sales You may see headlines about a drop in home sales. But are those headlines telling the full story?

More than 31 acres of gorgeous Montana land just became available! If you are interested in privacy, views, road maintenance, multiple choices for building sites, and abutment to Montana State Land, you have got to look at this beautiful piece of land!  This parcel is part of the Granite Hill Estates, which means it is covered by CCRs (covenants) and an HOA. It's important to note, though, that the covenants are not onerous. They do permit a home, guest houses, accessory buildings, garages and more. There are no specific restrictions on the numbers of animals and pets, as long as they meet county requirements. The only animals not allowed are pigs and swine. And the HOA does cover road maintenance, which is a huge advantage over other areas where this is not the case. You will notice se...

 4 Things to Look for in a New Backyard When Wanting to GardenWhat is it about a new home that makes us want to get out and do a little gardening? Whether you want to plant a few flowers or get a garden growing in the backyard, there is something about a new home that makes us crave a little dirt therapy. One reason many crave planting a garden is that it is quite rewarding, and, although it might seem paradoxical, gardening can be relaxing. However, there are some things one should consider before planting a garden, especially in a new backyard. 1. Location, location, location It is highly important that you choose a good location for your garden. Sure, aesthetically, you're probably going to want to put it in a certain place in the yard, but if you choose a location that doesn't drain...

Many mortgage lenders estimate PITI for you before they decide whether you qualify for a mortgage.  It is essentially the monthly payment you would be making on your home.  It does not include any utility expenses  that you might incur but that number is typically a very small number.  Small meaning typically @100.00 per month but again that number can zoom if you have numerous cable/internet options. Understanding mortgage vocabulary is so important during your homebuying journey, I'm here to answer any questions you may have, just send me a message! #thehelpfulLO #home #houseexpert #house #realestate #realtor #realestateagent #listreports #househunting #themoreyouknow #icanhelp
