  • How to Keep Your Tax Base When Selling Your Home And Buying A Replacement

    I was holding an open house this weekend where I met a couple who express how much they’ve dreamed of selling their current home and buying another but don’t do it because they are afraid their property tax will go up the roof.  I always recommend people speak with a tax professional for more accurate information, but I was thrilled to be the one to tell them, there might be hope.  Say hello to proposition 60 and 90!  Proposition 60 allows transfers of base year values within the same county. Proposition 90 allows transfers from one county to another county in California, it is recommended that you call your assessor for verification that your county is a participant. But there are requirements to be able to qualify, here are a few: You, or a spouse residing with you, must have been at least 55 years of age when the original property was sold; the replacement property must be your principal residence; the replacement property must be of equal or lesser “current market value” than the original property. So there you have it!  You can sell your current home and take your tax base with you. Did you already sell and buy the replacement home and this information just came your way?  It might not be too late to qualify, there is still hope!  For more information about proposition 60/90 contact

  • Get your Kitchen Spotless in 15 Minutes

    Feb 9, 15 • Munchkin • How To Sell Your HomeNo CommentsRead More »

    Hi Seller Who Lives At Home & Wants Top Dollar, Having to leave your home in the middle of your favorite TV show or dinner because potential buyers just called they are on their way for a showing can be both an inconvenience and uncomfortable. Well, I found this cool article that gives you a few tips to leaving your kitchen spotless in less then 20 minutes. STRESS NO MORE :: These great tips were written by Nicole Fabian Weber from P&Geveryday: 1. Clear the clutter. First thing first: Clear off your countertops. Collect any dirty dishes, wrappers, and scraps of food from your counters and put them in the sink, dishwasher, or trash. You can’t clean if you’ve got a bunch of junk in the way. (And, no, don’t clean around the junk.) 2. Hit the sink. Before getting down on the countertops, wash dirty dishes — or load them in the dishwasher if you have one. Water and soap are bound to spray on your counter, so there’s no point in getting them sparkly clean first. Tip: If you’ve got any dishes that require heavy-duty scrubbing, let them soak in some hot, soapy water while taking care of step 1.  3. Spray your countertops and stove. Even if everything else is clean, a stovetop that’s covered in dried, crusty food will make your kitchen look and feel like a disaster area. Remove the burner grates (don’t worry about cleaning them now

  • What Happened?

    At this point every year I find myself asking “What Happened”?  I was just making my predictions for 2014 and it’s already over. With every year end we take a look back before we say good bye to see what predictions came true, assess where we’re at, and make predictions for the new year ahead. At the start of this year we read and heard a lot about how the housing market would be slower this year.  And you know what they were right.  Across the board it has slowed down. Home values are stagnant and  mortgage volume is way down.  While they were right about the pace of business no one thought interest rates would be at their lowest level of the year in December but that’s what happened and we’re ending the year with 30-year fixed rates around 4%. 2015 will bring a new round of predictions from all the usual suspects.  And that includes me.  I predict Fannie & Freddie won’t be going anywhere.  They are making a lot of money and they are already looking to expand lending guidelines to reach more credit-worthy borrowers.  Home values will increase at a very modest pace and bring more buyers to the table.  Especially if interest rates stay low.  Home equity lines will return to be part of the purchase-loan structures to allow people to put down less than

  • “I’ve never seen someone sell a house like you guys”

    Hello! This week I would  like to share with you our coming soon listing. going live on the market this Friday. Here are a few pictures of how it looked before. The house was already beautiful, however it wasn’t ready to sell. Walking in to the home, you can see a family was living in their beautiful house, and the backyard didn’t match the rest of the house; needed help and lacked privacy. BEFORE:                   The owners put a lot of love and money into their home throughout the years. now that they want to sell, they came to us for guidance. First thing we agreed was the backyard needed to match the rest of the house. We made some great recommendations and three weekends, a barrel a sweat, and 2 exhausted owners later, this is what we accomplished: 1. leveled, reinforced, and installed a new fence 2. GREEN FEATURE: no-maintenance Landscape 3. Decluttered each room and Rearranged furniture 4. added final touches A beautiful house, inside & out.   To see the AFTER pictures, click here:  3525islavista.IsNowForSale.com   If you are thinking of selling your home and don’t know where to start, we know how we can help   Thanks for checking in, Renata  

  • To Sell Or Not To Sell?

      To sell or not to sell?  Just an example of one of the many questions that creep into your mind when you are thinking of putting your house on the market.  It can be a bit overwhelming at times and you want to make the right choice when it comes to choosing a person who will represent you during the process, if you do decide it is time to sell. But what questions are the right ones to ask? We wanted to create a video series that explained what interview questions you should most certainly ask a respected agent before working together.

  • Zillow to Buy Trulia-playing devil’s advocate

      The news in the real estate world is the acquisition of Trulia by Zillow.  Many in the business are writing this off as no big deal and believe that it won’t change how they do business (and they may be right). But I wanted to look at it in a different light and play devil’s advocate. Zillow and Trulia are juggernauts of the online real estate space.  I can’t stress this enough. Their combined unduplicated audience was 68.4 million unique U.S. visitors in June alone.  This represents 71 percent of the total number of visitors to ALL real estate websites! (according to comScore) Its no small potatoes to buy a company for 3.5 Billion dollars, even if its in shares. In acquiring Trulia, Zillow hopes to capture more of an incredibly fragmented real estate advertising marketplace. Real estate agents spend an estimated $12 billion annually on marketing to consumers. The combined revenues of the two companies account for only 4 percent of that. The rest of it goes to newspaper advertising and search engine marketing, among other things.  But to think that that 4% share is not going to skyrocket is somewhat naive.  With the amount of traffic that their websites see it is inevitable that advertisers will poor their dollars into that funnel. The elephant in the room however is the accuracy of the data that users receive
