99 Evergreen in Berkeley SOLD: #ModicumOfCharm Mid Century Mod

99evergreen_berkeley_pattyrogers.png

It's hard to pick a favorite 2017 SOLD home, though this fabulous mid-century modern find was in a fantastic location and featured outstanding views. Move-in ready with lots of upgrade possibilities. This home has more than a "modicum of charm" it's downright fabulous. Purchased by designers and ready to reach new design heights. Represented Buyer.

Seeing the potential in real estate is all about value. Not just financially in the moment, also in future potential. That's where I find homes with a #modicumofcharm. Homes that have fantastic bones, personality, with literal room for possibilities. Location, views, room to breathe. I've got an eye for unique and functional real estate and an intuition in matching you with the home that surprises.

San Francisco's East Bay is loaded with homes with potential.

When is a Good Time to Buy a Home?

goodtimetobuy_pattyrogers.png

Clients, people I meet and prospective buyers always ask, "When is a good time or the best time to buy a home?" My answer is usually, "Now!" The real estate market fluctuates. However in the Greater Bay Area we haven't seen downward pricing since 2009. Getting into the market is better than not being in. The longer you are an owner, the more opportunity you have to gain equity through home improvement and market appreciation. We all know that friend who purchased in the 2000's and we wish we had too:))

There are scenarios where it is wise to wait. If you are looking to avoid paying capital gains tax upon the sale of a home, you will have to live in the home for a certain period of time before selling, and then re-purchasing. 
Also, if you have consulted your financial professional regarding taxable events that may affect you and you have been advised as to when it is wise to purchase a home to offset whatever event has occurred. 

Buyers may monitor the seasons to determine the "best" time to buy and they are not entirely wrong. There is a slow down during the end of each year throughout the holidays and the market ramps up as Spring/Summer approaches with a flood of listings to market. If you are looking for less competition, the slower winter months may benefit you. If you want lots of choices and are willing to risk more multiple offers, then wait for the spring. 

The right time to buy is when you are ready. When your credit is in line, your down payment in hand and you are applying for a loan or have loan pre-approval. 3-6 months can make a big difference in pricing and availability of homes. Move ahead sooner than later so you don't have to be affected by unknown's in the real estate market.

Cooper_pattyrogers.png

This is Cooper, my Tibetan Terrier. I adopted him 6 months ago. He was mistreated and was 30 pounds overweight. 3 months later, he was  20 pounds less and of course quite comfortable in my gray leather chair! It's heartwarming to see him with a new lease on life, now happy and healthy, even though he's 10 years old.

East Bay Fixer-Upper in Real Time

Bill's Home Renovation - MY CLIENT!

Bill's Home Renovation - MY CLIENT!

This is my first installment of "MY CLIENTS". Real clients, who are getting ready to sell their homes, looking for homes or have just purchased homes and their real life sale and purchase scenarios. Helping East Bay real estate clients is exciting! 

My client Bill, pictured above, had a healthy purchase budget and wanted a beautiful home in the San Francisco Bay Area. He had looked for over a year and never found what he was looking for. So he switched agents. I was his "new" agent and carefully listened to what his needs were. I brought him to this "modicum of charm" home that was listed with 1 "Open House" and offers due in 4 days. The window of opportunity made all my bells and whistles go off! 

I whisked Bill to 835 56th St, Oakland, CA for a preview of the 2 Bedroom | 1 Bath Craftsman home, and we wrote his offer the same day. At this point, he was with me for 1 week! The home was old, built in 1912 and had many windows bringing in fantastic light, hardwood floors underneath the carpeting and had been kept in excellent condition as it was held by the same owner for 50 years. The home was under his budget leaving him room for renovation. It was easy for Bill and I to determine together, how home renovation would modernize and add value to become the home he had envisioned with all the charm he had desired.

We were the successful bid. Bill has already drawn up plans and begun his remodel. I stopped in to check on his renovation and snapped the pic above. It's easy to see he has made terrific progress. Stay tuned for updates on Bill's home and further installments of "My Clients", they are terrific!
