Funky Foto Contest Week 243

I’m really sort of liking these new aerial shots of FC! Thanks Mr Lingl! This weeks question….name the townhouse project that has that little island in the middle of the water down there. If you’re first to do that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Chevys, which is almost visible down there too. As […]


So I get a nice email from blog reader Patrick Chang who asks: Seems like the insanity has cool off a bit as homes that came out last week are scheduled to open again this weekend. Your take? It would appear that the higher level of inventory creates the appearance that things have slowed down […]

Good and Bad News

    Here’s the good news…there’s more inventory out there. Actually a whopping 8 single family houses listed as of today. I spoke to the photographer in my office yesterday and he told me he’s been super busy shooting virtual tours. That means we’ll see more after Easter. Yay! What’s the bad news you ask? […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 242

Now this was pretty evenly split…some picked Gull Park and some Marlin Park. It was Gull Park. Congratulations to Ellen Hoogeveen who arrived first and wins the $30.00 gift card to Safeway.

Funky Foto Contest Week 242

Sliding on into the weekend? I am! This weeks question…where exactly is this slide? If you’re first to tell me you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Safeway.  As usual, all the rules of the road are available to view on the left hand margin as well as on the bar above. The winner along […]

Some Fallout

I had lunch with a friend of mine today who showed me a couple of letters he’s received at his house recently. It was interesting because I haven’t seen this type of letter at my house…but I suspect it won’t be long until I do. One was a short but sweet letter that appeared to […]

The Yo Yo Market

I’ve heard several people tell me that they would just as soon avoid taking part in this current real estate market’s insanity. Their plan is to just wait things out. Hang on the sidelines and enter the market maybe later this summer when things have calmed down. When there’s more inventory. When prices have settled […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 241

What a long day! This one is really kind of obscure, but the project is indeed Town Green. Congratulations to Debbie Yeung who got there first and wins the $30.00 Chipotle gift card! Plenty of you answered with pretty good variations on that name but fortunately Debbie got there first and hit it right on […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 241

I was thinking about asking what kind of trees those are, but that would probably be easier than the alternative. The weeks question is a little obscure in my mind…what’s the name of the townhouse project in the background here? If you’rre first to answer that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Chipotle. As […]

Out There in the Real World

Now I wonder what I could get for this little house? So what if it’s a dog house…it would probably sell for $500,000 around here! So, I saw a friend of mine post on Facebook today that there were only 8 houses on the market in San Carlos today and it gave me pause. We all […]
