2016 Year-End Market Report for Cardiff by the Sea CA Here is my 2016 year-end market update for single family homes in Cardiff by the Sea (a.k.a. Cardiff), just south of Encinitas. Check out the Cardiff lifestyle:  Cardiff offers a mix of single family detached homes, from bungalows to multi-million dollar ocean-view homes in the Composer and Walking Districts near the down town area, in a variety of styles! The town is small so inventory of available single family homes is often limited, and prices can vary significantly depending on location and views. Want to learn more about Cardiff-by-the-Sea?  Cardiff by the Sea – Quintessential Beach Community A Visual Tour of Cardiff-by-the-SeaLike to Walk?

The Royal Kook  The Cardiff Kook (or simply The Kook), as this Cardiff by the Sea statue is affectionately called, has a somewhat controversial history, and since it's creation has gathered quite a following.  The reason?  Soon after the statue ("Magic Carpet Ride" by sculptor Matthew Antichevich) was erected in 2007 people started dressing the Kook up in all sorts of styles - here in Royal Wedding finery back in 2011 when you know who got married. You never know quite how the Kook will be dressed  - check out the Cardiff Kook's website for all the fun.

Bumper Stickers Galore  I spied this VW bus parked along the Coast Road in a popular surfing area of Cardiff-by-the-Sea some years ago. I've never seen it again but no doubt the owner is still parking, surfing, and air drying his or her wetsuit at the side of the road. It would have been fun to have a close-up of all the stickers

Would you ever buy a used car without having your mechanic inspect it, test it, and check it out completely?  No, you would get it inspected by your trusted mechanic, because you want to ensure that your car is in good condition before you pay for it and drive it off the car lot.Well, your house is an even bigger investment than a car, is it not? Naturally, before you commit to a purchase that is hundreds of thousands of dollars, you want to know your new home's structural condition.Your REALTOR® will recommend ordering a professional home inspection from a reputable company.  In some states, home inspectors are licensed by the state, but there is no licensing required in California.How do you know if you’re hiring a top notch professional you can trust?  Always ask if the home inspecto...
