On Tuesday Tour with @AldoCongi « 12.09.14

Posted On December 11th, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

It’s been a week of aberrations for the Bay Area. For starters, the Oakland Raiders beat the San Francisco 49ers; the former losing its predicted title as “the worst team in the NFL” and the latter losing (what’s previously been) an assured spot in the playoffs. By mid-week, this drought-ridden region was awaiting its first Pineapple Express visit to storm through after a five-year blow-off. Adding to the list of such out-of-the-blue behavior, Aldo’s Tuesday Tour pedometer had only 16 new…

San Francisco: CA’s Home of the Ultra-Rich Amidst Real Estate Boom

Posted On December 8th, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

Wealth-X and UBS World Ultra Wealth Report 2014 from Wealth-X on Vimeo.   Fueled by the tech and real estate sectors, San Francisco’s economic growth over the past three years has been resoundingly strong. Of course, when any major economic boom occurs, skeptics always raise the question of sustainability. A recent study by Wealth-X, the world’s most comprehensive data tracker for individuals with a net worth of $30 million-plus, shows that the largest backers of the Bay Area’s uphill climb are…

How to Get Top Dollar for Your Home

Posted On December 8th, 2014 by Ester Kozaczuk | No Comments

Here are some practical and essential tips to get top dollar for the sale of your home: Selling Secret #10: Pricing it right Find out what your home is worth, then shave 15 to 20 percent off the price. You’ll be stampeded by buyers with multiple bids—even in the worst markets—and they’ll bid up the price over what it’s worth. It takes real courage and most sellers just don’t want to risk it, but it’s the single best strategy to…

BOM: Back on the Market « Marina Times

Posted On December 8th, 2014 by Carole Isaacs | No Comments

Bad news for sellers, good news for buyers. The real estate agents’ home page of the multiple listing service (MLS) has a special box that shows new listings within 24 hours, price increases, and price reductions. There is also a category called back on the market (BOM). The goal of all real estate agents is to do their best to make sure their listings move smoothly from “active” to “active continued,” “pending,” and “sold.” Unfortunately, no amount of quizzing a…

The Olfactory Factor

Posted On December 7th, 2014 by Cynthia Cummins | No Comments

Staging is for ALL the senses. Quote me: “If you can smell it, you can’t sell it.” And this includes “positive” odors because the human olfactory system is so strongly tied to emotional reactions. You might assume that the odor of freshly baked cookies evokes a “smells-like-home-so-show-me-where-to-sign” response in buyers. But your cash-toting multi-millionaire millennial may, in fact, have an aversion to cinnamon or vanilla or any of Mrs. Meyer’s nasal-raiding fragrances. Better to keep it clean and neutral. Cynthia Cummins is…

My Quest for the Origin of the “Chef’s Kitchen”

Posted On December 6th, 2014 by Amy Blakeley | No Comments

Being a curious person, I am fascinated by random concepts and often enter into a quest to satisfy that curiosity. Once at Ocean Beach I happened upon literally thousands of sand dollars on the beach. Perfect ones! More than I could carry! But I was haunted by the question…what leads to such a massacre? Later that afternoon I knew almost as much as a marine biologist about the life of sand dollars. I’ll spare you, but it was fascinating. So you can imagine…
