A Different Market

So, you think the real estate market hasn’t turned a corner yet, huh? On Sunday I shot a video of a house in Palo Alto for a client who lives in New York….thus the commentary on it. OK, it’s Palo Alto but the story of folks out there looking is becoming more and more common […]

Biting The Bullet-Short Sales

You know what? Honestly, I really hate short sales. Since they sort of arrived on the scene around here they’ve been a massive pain in the posterior if you ask me. I’m not alone in that estimation either. A short sale (a oximoron if ever there was one) occurs when a homeowner who owes more on […]
