Prop G Takes Aim at Renters, Seniors, Buyers & Multi-Unit Owners

Posted On October 29th, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

For San Franciscans interested in the welfare of the city’s real estate market, it would be an understatement to say that heading to the ballot box on November 4th is crucial. With an incumbent facing little opposition in the larger gubernatorial race, Prop G could in fact end up being this election’s most important vote in terms of its economic impact on San Francisco. As outlined previously, this measure would impose a crushing 14 to 24 percent tax on the…

Staging is magical. It’s “theater” that evokes a buyer’s emotional response and thereby enhances a seller’s bottom line. It makes it easier for buyers to envision themselves living in a home. It psychically de-personalizes the property and displays furnishings in context. It makes a house more inviting in every way. But there’s another unexpected and little-discussed benefit: By creating an idealized version of a home, staging makes it easier for sellers to LET GO. An owner’s initial reaction to viewing their…

Letter from the President « McGuire Q3 2014

Posted On October 23rd, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

Relative to the past two years, Bay Area real estate activity in the third quarter could almost be described as “ordinary,” or “commonplace.” Translated through the nation’s hottest market, however, such terminology would of course be more aptly worded as “excessively strong.” Overall, we saw several counties once again hit all-time average sales price highs.
