Urban Living in the Burbs

More and more, clients are in pursuit of residential properties that afford them urban amenities out in the suburbs.  Often priced out of the crazy San Francisco market, folks are looking at communities like Hayward that have easy access to transportation, have real downtowns with movies, restaurants and entertainment within walking distance, and reachable open spaces and parks.  For a fraction of the price, one can truly have the luxury of living near one of the world’s greatest cities.

What’s It Worth?

Market values for homes in Alameda County are going up, up, up.  In Hayward, January 2012 to January 2013 values are up 34% and climbing.  Want to know what your property’s market value is today?  Don’t trust Zillow or other online estimators.  Come to the local experts for a free, no obligation detailed comparative market analysis.

Historic Neighborhood in Downtown Hayward


Think “zen” when you approach this home in the historic Prospect Hill neighborhood of downtown Hayward! With a very active neighborhood association, this oasis is only a few blocks from the downtown Cinemark theatre, farmers market, post office, city hall, BART, restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, etc. Only a few extra blocks away are the Japanese gardens and the Senior Center.
A glass-walled living room looks onto a koi pond in the back yard. Bamboo floors and rich Philippine mahogany complete the scene in the living area. The kitchen is inspired by the best 5-star restaurant kitchens in San Francisco. To add nostalgia to the scene, the bathrooms are decorated in hot retro tones. The overall scene will be appreciated by the most artistic and eclectic folks in the bay area who work hard, play hard and rest with equal fervor.
This home will be available by March 31st. Stay tuned for Open House dates!
(Of upcoming interest: 20th Annual Asian Heritage Festival on May 19th!)

VA Buyers’ Challenge

In this market, where multiple offers and cash buyers are the norm, our VA buyers are getting left behind.  It is unfortunate that some of the very benefits of a VA loan are hindrances to making the purchase work, particularly when sellers have their pick of buyers.  Any creative ideas out there?  Any sellers that believe in recognizing our veterans for the service and deciding to work with a veteran buyer rather focusing purely on profit?
