Mission Terrace Revisited – A Neighborhood On Its Way Up

This week on Broker’s Tour, I toured Mission Terrace, a neighborhood I wrote a post about back in 2013.  At the time, it seemed like one of the few neighborhoods that young couples could buy a move-in ready home for under $800,000.

During our discussion, I brought up staging and strongly recommended that they stage their home.  They ... Read More »

There aren’t very many and the ones that do exist are way too small.  On Broker’s Tour recently, I came upon a unique solution to this problem.  The owners of an Ashbury Heights condo which is on the market turned one of the bedrooms – ...

Creating the Perfect Place Instead of Finding It

It is not uncommon that first time buyers who are buying a home or condo want at least two bathrooms. This makes sense, especially when they are living with a partner or have people over often.  However, suppose they cannot afford to buy a property with two bathrooms, what can they do?
