Buying or Selling Your Home … Let’s Do a Walk-Through
1 The MarketThe market changes—the basics don't. Knowing the latest home values, market trends and neighborhoods is important for both buyers and sellers. But, it takes the whole package. Put an experienced local Realtor to work for you.
2 Your NeedsIt's all about you. Your needs should always come first, whether you’re selling or buying. Want to move quickly? Or planning for the future? Develop a strategy that meets your current financial needs as well as your long-term lifestyle goals.
3 The ProcessYou need a guide. Successful buying and selling both take up-front planning and focused action. There’s market analysis, inspections, open houses, disclosures and much, much more. Your Realtor will guide you through the maze to an accepted offer.
4 The MoneyLet's close this deal. Now you're in escrow. For both sellers and buyers, negotiating through the inspection and loan contingency periods is crunch time. Keeping all the critical details on track is where a top Realtor really shines. It's what we do.
Think of this site as your Guidebook to Oakland, Berkeley and Piedmont Homes.
Planning to sell or looking to buy? Check out the latest on Rockridge, Crocker Highlands, Montclair, Glenview, Redwood Heights and Temescal in Oakland. In Berkeley, there’s Claremont/Uplands, Elmwood, Thousand Oaks, Berkeley Hills, Gourmet Ghetto and Westbrae – and the neighborhoods of Piedmont.
As a lifelong resident and long-time realtor, these communities feel like home to me. In these changing times, it’s helpful to have an experienced hand guide you through the big decisions.
Have a look around…there’s lots to see and do. I think our part of the East Bay is the best place in the world to live.
