Before homes are formally put on the market and open to the public, the listing agent often hosts an open house for the real estate agents to preview the property. Join Rick and Suzanne in discussing various properties, the state of the market and other interesting details.
The single family home real estate market within Santa Clara County remained inventory constrained throughout 2018, although, there was a moderate leveling or cooling beginning in the Spring and continuing through the balance of the year. We have considered several metrics within this presentation, including changes in Days on Market, Months of Standing Inventory and Average Price Per Square Foot.
This European inspired estate was constructed in 1991 by Owen Signature Homes and includes 5 bedrooms and 5 full baths. Situated at the end of a court, this gated property rests on 1.4 acres of land and includes 4,786 square feet of living space. While the setting of this home is extremely private, it is also conveniently located in close proximity to downtown Los Altos, schools, amenities, and freeway access.
We look forward to the opportunity to discuss how Alain Pinel Realtor’s Leadership can serve as a meaningful advantage in benefiting our clients!
This attractive Tuscan Villa is situated on apx 2.75 acres of land within the Blue Oaks subdivision of Portola Valley. Located just off Los Trancos Road and at the end of a private road, this 16 year-old estate enjoys privacy amongst a grotto of majestic oak trees and is surrounded by 285 acres of open space.
We were pleased to represent a trust company in the sale of this this original condition 2 bedroom entry-level home. Frankly, we also take pause in referring to $2.65M as entry level, but within the context of North Los Altos, this is where the rubber ultimately hit the road. Through strategic re-painting, restoration of the hardwood flooring beneath 40 year-old carpet and by staging with contemporary furnishings, we believe that we were able to achieve a very high return on the $10k of capital invested during the preparation of this property.
With a new season, comes a natural inclination to change things around the household. And as a real estate agent, I am often asked for guidance that transcends a real estate transaction, including how to better organize one’s wardrobe space. Prepping your closet for a new season takes a few hours of your time but is worth every minute invested. So before you rush out and shop for new pieces to elevate your wardrobe, consider paying your closet a visit.
Come the weekend, one of my favorite things to do is to pack up my rolling shopping cart and spend Sunday morning with my 15 year old daughter at the award winning Mountain View Farmers’ Market. Voted Top 5 in the Nation by American Farmland Trusts’ Favorite Farmers’ Market Contest, the Mountain View Farmers’ Market runs year-round and showcases over 80 farmers and food purveyors every Sunday, 9am to 1pm. The market is located at the Caltrain Station where parking can be a challenge, so my recommendation is to arrive early, and park in the residential areas. I usually have luck parking with on, or in and around Villa Street.
We enjoyed working with a buyer in their acquisition of this off market North Los Altos property. Prior to coming to market, we were able to present an offer and negotiate the sale of the property to all of the party’s satisfaction and close the transaction in less than 30 days.
