Here is cool graph of the marketing trends in Winters for the past year. As you can see it is still a Sellers Market. We have had some very good sells recently in our upper end market, between $400-$500,000.00. So, if you are a seller in that price range now is a good time to put your home on the market, while those comparable sells are fresh. I love selling home in November and December as you are working with serious Buyers and Sellers. If you would like to get more information on the value of your home be sure and give me call.
My daughter, Devon, who is a licensed real estate broker, will be holding an Open House today, Saturday Jan 17, 2015, at 119 Westwood Ct. from 12-2pm. This house is a great opportunity to live in a cul-de-sac close to downtown, the City Park and the elementary school. The Putah Creek walkway is just a short walk away and a very popular spot for the locals, especially dag walkers. The home has a see through fireplace located between the living room and the dining room. It has been a rental over the past few years and the cooktop, double ovens, dishwasher and the heater have all been replace recently. To get it ready for sale the owner had all of the interior painted and new carpeting installed. The kitchen and bathrooms are original but at the list price, investing in these upgrades would be well worth it. The lot is almost 8000 square feet, a size that is hard to find around. Make it a point to stop by today and take a look. If you can’t come between 12-2 today you can call Devon and make an appointment to see it over the long weekend at 530-304-2245. Hope to see you there.
It isn’t very often that you find one owner for both sides of the halfplexes located on E. Main Street. In Winters we have a fairly unique situation down on Caselli Court and Lauren Court and part of E. Main Street. The properties are built as a duplex with a common firewall in between them. Each half can be sold individually and many of them are. In this particular case I have owners who happen to own both halves and you can buy one side or both if you like. I have been the property manager for these two properties for many years and now the owners have decided to sell. Each side is currently rented. If you would like more information about this opportunity please give me call at 530-681-8939.
I will be hosting an Open House on Halloween night from 4-6pm at 104 Westwood Ct. Please stop by and view this great house situated on one of the largest lots in Winters, 170,00+ square feet. It has recent updates to both bathrooms and the kitchen, nice soft, plush carpet and crown molding throughout. I will be serving champagne and chocolate so you don’t want to miss that. Trick or Treats for the adult crowd.
Well we did it again, we won the 2014 World Series! My dad would be so thrilled if he were here. It was a real nail bitter and with the tying run on third my heart was pounding! God Bless Sandoval for catching that foul ball and making history. In my humble opinion Panik made the game saving play, Bumgarner saved us with his awesome pitching, and Morse saved us with his batting skills. If any of you are interested the parade will be tomorrow, October 31 in San Francisco. You can count on my assistant, Cheryl, to be there, she has already asked for the day off. I told her no problem, she can work on Saturday. No sure she enjoyed my sense of humor.
Well here it is game seven of the World Series and it is a do or die situation for our beloved Giants. As I write this were are barely ahead three to two bottom of the Fourth. It has certainly been an interesting ride this year but I guess that isn’t that unusual. I was lucky enough to attend game three in San Francisco last Friday, it is one of those Buck List things. It was our second loss but then we rallied back on Saturday and Sunday, fell apart on Tues and now here we are on Wednesday. Many have predicated that this series between two wild teams would come down to game seven. So here is a toast to my team and a prayer for a win. But no matter what happens, there is always “next year”. But hopefully this will be our third World Series win in five years. Can’t wait to see what Tiffany’s will design for their next WS ring! GO GIANTS!

Back in July I wrote about my experience doing a HARP refi on one of my loans. The loan papers were ready for signing the beginning of September and we didn’t have to make a loan payment until the first of November! I was thrilled as that saved us two months worth of payments. On November 1 we made our first payment under the loan modification and it was $600. less than what we were previously paying. I have had to start over on the second loan as it was discovered during the process the first time that the original loan that was paid off was never recorded. Therefore it looked like I had two loans on the property. So, it took me a month to get that straightened out. But, as a result I had to start all over again with the process! What a pain but hopefully I am almost there.
