    Agents try a new tactic! Recently a new phenomenon has appeared in the local real estate market in the tri-valley. Many homes in Livermore and homes for sale in Pleasanton are affected. Several homes have come onto the market at very deep discounts. These are bank owned properties or “REO”s. The asking price is so low that it does not really reflect the true value of the home. For example, a property in Livermore bank owned and 2100 square feet was listed at an asking price of $330,000. The last home similar to it sold and closed for $550,000 one month ago. There currently exists two others similar on the market for the low $500,000s. By listing the property at an artificially low price, the bank and listing Agent aims to get a lot of excitement and activity immediately and therefor...

Seating is in a terraced outdoor amphitheater surrounded by gardens, vineyards, hillsides, and tile-roofed winery buildings designed in the style of old California. The intimate nature of the setting limits the number of tickets that can be sold and ensures every seat is a good one.

If you are not sure where that is it is about 40 minutes southeast of San Francisco right before the Altamont Pass into the San Joaquin Valley. Livermore is named after Robert Livermore a rancher who married a Spanish landowners daughter and brought civilization to the area. Robert Livermore is buried not far from here at the Mission San Jose church. We have lots of history in this town but what I would like to talk with you about is the family friendly community that we are a part of. We are a rodeo town. Known for ranching, vineyards and rodeo for entertainment. We host the World's Fastest Rodeo the first week-end of June. If you have not seen this you are missing a great piece of Americana. Our Livermore Downtown Association has helped transform our outdated downtown area to a bright...

Protection by the coastal range provides the Livermore Valley with a mild climate that enhances the pursuit of a more relaxed, less congested lifestyle. As home to renowned science and technology centers, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory, Livermore is a technological hub and an academically engaged community.

If you want to know what your house is worth,contact a local Realtor who will research the very latest data to come up with the closest estimated price your home should go on the market for. Realtors do not only use the latest comps, but also takes into account current market activity, supply and demand, and uniqueness of the home. Zillow.com is a free resource on the internet that estimates the value of homes. Unfortunately it will never represent current market value. The data from this web site lags the market by up to six months or more. Zillow.com does not take take into account (or know) if your home has been remodeled. If you rely solely on Zillow.com to price your house, you may give thousands of dollars away. If you rely on zillow.com to tell you how much to offer on a home, yo...

Livermore is doing everything right. Looks like the city planners definitely have nailed this one. We meet with friends for dinner at the new Fondue restaurant downtown. I will admit it has been years since I had dinner downtown, but what a change! I mean that in all sincerity. Downtown Livermore development is working, I love the fact that it still has the old town charms with new restaurants gaining foothold. The boutiques are wonderful and it is looking like Livermore has it all. I definitely love the idea of getting out of my car and walking, especially if it also involves shopping. Yes Livermore is happening. I even hear that a new dance studio is coming to downtown Livermore. What? Salsa dance lessons in downtown Livermore? A downtown for years was home to a couple of rock-countr...
