I live in a community that is surrounded by hills, mountains and wildlife.  One ot the highest peaks in the area is Mount Diablo.   It can be seen for hundreds a miles away.  It makes for a nice Sunday ride up the hill or an energetic bike ride on a Saturday morning.  Here is some background information on the majestic peek. Mount Diablo is a mountain in Contra Costa County, California in the San Francisco Bay Area, located south of the town of Clayton and northeast of Danville. It is an isolated 3,849 feet upthrust peak that is visible from most of the San Francisco Bay Area and much of northern California. Mount Diablo appears from many angles to be a double pyramid and includes many subsidiary peaks, the largest and closest of which is the other half of the double pyramid, North Peak...

Every great deal I'm seeing is being sold within a week. Last week I spotted a 3800+ sqt home in San Ramon's Windermere. They asked $950K and I see it's already pending. The house had amazing upgrades. If you're looking, when you spot a deal, run with it.   p.s this was bank owned.

The median single family home price in SAN RAMON CALIFORNIA this week is $879,000. Demand measured by the Market Action Index is increasing and days on market is trending downward. Even as more properties come available, these are positive trends for the market. The market has been on a downward trend recently and this week, while essentially flat, doesn’t break us out of that cycle.

Here are the weekly MLS trends for Danville, CA and San Ramon, CA.   Blue = Active ListingsGreen = Pending SalesPurple = Closed Transactions These graphs help to give you an idea of real estate market trends in the local communities. We pull the data from the MLS every Friday. The blue line represents Active Listings and the green line Pending Sales. The wider the gap, the more the average Days on Market (DOM) increases indicating more of a buyer's market. When the green line moves on top of the blue we have a very hot seller's market. These graphs reflect the trends for all price points. Sellers should request a breakdown for different price points so they can see where the action is in their community. This helps to price the house right to sell quickly.  We also offer a very detailed...

While out showing homes tonight my buyer commented that the short sale properties in San Ramon CA and REO properties in San Ramon CA she has seen are seldom clean and in good repair. I'll agree that's true about 90% of the time in our market. As a professional real estate agent I try to deal with this situation in the initial buyer's consultation held in my office where we discuss the market, market value, REO transactions and the "dark side" of short sale transactions; lengthy response times, no guarantee the asking price is the selling price, lack of disclosures, etc. It helps to point out the rough costs of paint and carpet. I know I had this discussion with this buyer, but now, seeing it first-hand, it is sinking in. Sometimes even I am taken aback by the showing condition of REO's ...

I am finally feeling vindicated- I have proof now of what the builders are doing !! Saville in Windemere had posted 2 properties on the MLS that I had been following for sometime.One was on Fenwick Way priced on the MLS for $835,800, a plan 2 and another one on Enfield Street, a plan 4 at $859,000.Well here is what they sold for: $726,065 and $748,487 respectively !! The bigger home sold for $350.08/sq ft and the smaller home sold at $371.96/ sq ft.I said in my last post that the plan 4 should go around 740K and now I am so glad that my prediction was right.Looking at percentages, these homes sold for 87% of the listing price and in my opinion there should have been more room for negotiation.Looking into the county recorders sales figures over the last 5 months at Saville, their prices ...

When a reader brought it to attention, I looked back at my blogs to see if that is what I was doing.My words may seem like that but the thought behind all my blogs is the same strong sentiment- deals have to be REAL DEALS !!!! Let me clarify myself for those who read my blog and if thereafter I seem to go off on a tangent, please excuse me as I am not a professional writer !Centex:La Sera and Sera Vista- When they started their price correction, the plan 1 at $838,000 on dirt lots was a great pricing but builder did not give any upgrades.They were giving standard features and buyers who did not care for upgrades but just wanted an affordable home got a great deal.Builder soon realised that the concept of selling dirt lots was getting an amazing response, they created a marketing hype ar...
