Winter is around the corner….

And it’s a good time to sell your home!   Although the market often cools down in the winter months, it also means there are fewer sellers, which means less competition for active buyers.  There are plenty of buyers that are either first time buyers or homeowners that are upgrading or downgrading – interest rates are still low, which makes the house you are selling easier to afford.  Furthermore, there are buyers who have intentionally waited for winter when the market is not as hectic as during the summer.   With a good real estate agent by your side, any time is a good time to sell or buy!

Have a real estate question?  I’m only an email or phone call away!

Shhhhh! It’s a Secret

Shhhh? Well, maybe not anymore! People relocating to California are hearing about us.  Livermore has been the best kept secret for several years now. As we sneak out of the last recession it’s becoming more evident that Livermore is more vibrant than it has ever been. Downtown is busy and hopping most nights of the week. Whether you are looking for live music, art shows, wine events or good eating, you will find it in downtown Livermore.

I am so proud to be a Livermore resident. I was here decades ago during the “no growth” period.  It was a time when chain link fences and weeds were seen in the downtown area.  Instead of going below the railroad tracks on Murrieta Blvd, you drove over them.  When going over the “hill ” on Portola to First Street, the only thing you ran into was “SmorgaBob’s”.   If you remember that you really are a long time resident!!

We are now benefitting from  well thought out revitalization programs. My hats off to the planners. We still have new and exciting things to come in Livermore. For more details about what is happening please contact me. I am happy to share with you why so many people are moving here.  If you are considering a relocation here I am happy to give you your first tour.

What’s My Home Worth?

 

I hear it all the time. Natalie, what's my home worth? Isn't this what we all really want to know? Who really cares about any other neighborhood or any other home. 

Those fancy active, pending, and sold flyers are sent  to you in the mail and you simply look at the sales  data and make your own assumptions based on what sales prices are seen.  Right?  Well, maybe  but without having seen the interior of the homes or having intimate knowledge of the various updates in each of them, my experience is that the average homeowner is still in the dark as to the actual value of their home.

It's an important job for the experienced listing agent to objectively look at the recent sales and educate their clients about these other homes. The key for you, the Seller, is to find a listing agent who has been in these homes and not simply viewed them online. This is just one reason of the multitude of reasons why it's important to work with a listing agent who specializes in the same market in which you live. 

If you are wondering what your home is worth. I'm here to help! Especially if you live in Livermore. Call me for a complimentary market evaluation of your home. No strings attached!
