Creative juices have been dried up in the heat lately.I have had many ideas to write about but today I decided to write about bank owned properties in Windemere, San Ramon.Many buyers have asked me about bank owned properties in this area and I have also written offers, which I am sorry to report, got kicked out. You may ask, why? Well, because despite my providing hard core data, the buyers felt they could grab these homes at 30% below list price. But unfortunately, the buyers lost the deals and my time went to a waste.So, based on this experience, I decided to pull some data for you readers. Bank owned homes in Windemere are no longer great deals.There are too many buyers waiting on the sidelines to pounce on the ones that hit the market. They are far and few, and when these bank owne...

Yep, I'm now a blogger.  YIPPEEE.  My transformation into a complete internet nerd is complete.  Anyway, I took a class yesterday from a gal named Sabine Larson, on FHA and FHA 203 loan, which is a renovation loan that allows a buyer with less than steller credit, purchase a fixer upper house, with the fix up money included in the loan.  It's pretty neat and I suspect it will gain in popularity in the coming months and years. It has the following basic  requirements.

Tomorrow is the 4th of July and it's time to come out and celebrate with us the City's 25th Anniversary.  Come one come all and celebrate tomorrow. The City of San Ramon celebrated its 25th anniversary of incorporation on July 1st, 2008.  Twenty-five years ago, the voters of the then sleepy village of San Ramon voted to incorporate effective July 1st, 1983.  The entire community will celebrate with an anniversary party at the City's Star Spangled Spectacular tomorrow at Central Park. Attendees will enjoy a special edition fireworks display along with music, food and fun in the park. The resulting impacts of the hard work and dedication of our "pioneers" of incorporation are most evident today as our beautiful City has evolved into one of the best places to live and work in America.  Fro...

It's no secret that people like Warren Buffet and Donald Trump are actively involved in purchasing as much real estate as possible right now. Buyers need to understand that like Buffet and Trump, the smartest people in the real estate business are contrarians. They sell when prices increase and buy when prices are going down. This may be a little difficult for some buyers to grasp since it is exactly opposite to how most consumers behave. When prices increase, buyers stampede to buy property to capitalize on the increases. Of course, when markets fall, those who bought at or near the peak are generally the ones who are stuck with properties that are not worth what they paid. As one economist put it, "I know it's time to get out of the real estate market when my manicurist and the man wh...

The #1 topic of conversation at open houses in San Ramon and Danville is the highly ranked San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD), their schools and API* scores. Other than lifestyle, schools are THE main attraction to incoming relocation buyers in San Ramon and Danville CA. Sometimes I think rather than connecting home buyers and home sellers, I'm connecting students with a desk in the best classrooms! The state goal for all schools is an 800 API. Only 31% of all schools in California meet that goal. Less than 15% of all high schools state-wide meet the goal. All SRVUSD schools, including the high schools meet the goal. Northern California is home to many leading employers including a large number of technology companies staffed with highly educated, highly compensated indiv...
