WHY HERCULES?  Hercules CA Real Estate Many have never heard of the City of Hercules.  I can remember back when I was attending San Francisco State in the late 80's, someone telling me that they were moving to Hercules and having not a clue where that was.  Well many years later, I can say that I am very familiar with this little gem of a town.  What makes Hercules a great place to live?  It is a commuter's dream area.  It is on the San Francisco side of the Carquinez Bride, so no toll.  There are express buses that will take you non-stop right into San Francisco or connect you with BART.  There is easy access to highway 80 as well as highway 4. Transit Center planned with: •·         San Francisco Bay ferry service to San Francisco •·         Passenger rail station with access to 46 Am...

VICTORIA BY THE BAY REAL ESTATE-WHAT IS CONTINGENT VS. PENDING Many clients are mystified by what the difference between a property that is contingent versus one that is pending.  Hopefully, I can clear some of that confusion up for everyone.  When you as a buyer place an offer on a property and a seller accepts, you are given a certain number of days to complete your contingencies.  A contingency can be an inspection, an appraisal, loan verification, etc.  Typically in California the purchase contract allows for standard timeframes for each contingency.  Acceptance begins the day after the acceptance date.  So if you get a contact back from the seller on May7th, the clock starts ticking on your contingency period begins on May 8th.  LOAN APPLICATION, meaning within seven days after acc...

If you live in California and have ever had or known someone who has had Kaiser medical insurance, then you are probably aware of the advice nurse.  These are the people who do the triage for the doctors and clinics.  You call up to the call center of Kaiser and present your symptoms to the person on the other line.  They in turn ask you a succession of questions designed to determine the best outcome for your ailment.  This may be a trip to the ER if you are having chest pain, an appointment with your doctor or something as simple as advice for treating your symptoms at home.  I used to be an advice nurse for Kaiser in Vallejo and loved it, but life offered me a new challenge and I took it.  I became a realtor for the Solano and Contra Costa areas.  Today, many homeowners are facing fo...
