Too afraid to contact a local Cardiff By The Sea Real Estate Agent to find out                                                       "What Your Home Is Worth in Cardiff By The Sea?"               Most people who go on the internet who want to find out what their home is worth would prefer to use an online valuation, FIRST, and then contact an agent if they are sincerely thinking about selling. FYI...Nothing can replace a good Cardiff By The Sea Realtor when it comes to determining the value of your home in Cardiff By The Sea, Encinitas CA 92007. However, I thought it would still be a good idea to give folks what they want when visiting my Cardiff By The Sea Real Estate site. So, if you are hoping to hear some good news on how much money you can net when selling a home in Cardiff, Encini...

The Cardiff Kook Run is Superbowl Sunday February 1, 2015 in Cardiff by the Sea   The 2015 4th Annual Cardiff Kook Run will be held on Sunday February 1st in Cardiff by the Sea (Cardiff).   This fun and popular 5K and 10K Cardiff Kook Run is named after the famous surfing statue on the Coast Highway in Cardiff, the Cardiff Kook (officially named the “Magic Carpet Ride” by sculptor Matthew Antichevich).   The Kook, as the statue is affectionately called, has created a stir since it was created because of the numerous and varied costumes it adorns at holidays, for special events, and just because someone decides to decorate it.   Check out the Cardiff Kook website where you can enjoy the Kook at its best, with a boatload of pics; the Beach City Café in Cardiff was renamed the Kook’s Café...

San Diego Area ActiveRain Meet-up a Huge Success Today in Cardiff by the Sea ~ January 22, 2015   Another successful ActiveRain meet-up took place today in Cardiff by the Sea, on the beach at the Pacific Coast Grill.   The winter weather was pretty nice here in paradise, so we sat outside listening to the sound of the waves and watching the seagulls, and a few interloping pigeons.   There was great conversation about blogging but about real estate in general, among other topics, and no doubt plenty of great ideas were shared, all while enjoying some great food (I missed pics of other’s food but I enjoyed the filet mignon sliders with garlic fries) in a beautiful location on the beach.   Attendees included current ActiveRain members, some who are long-timers and others who are new or wh...

Happy Birthday From the Cardiff Kook   The Cardiff Kook, as the surfing statue at the intersection of the coast road and Chesterfield is affectionately called, was dressed up today for a birthday.   Happy Birthday Avi, whoever you are.     Unfortunately the Kook's bathing suit seems to have slipped abit, so perhaps today was not the real birthday.   For those of you unfamiliar with this popular bit of SoCal (especially Cardiff by the Sea) history, the Cardiff Kook is regularly dressed in all kinds of finery year-round - for holidays, local events, and even more personal circumstances like birthdays. The Kook even celebrated the Royal Wedding some years ago!   The Cardiff Kook even has its own website where you can enjoy all the costumes the statue has endured, and read more about the po...
