5 Affordable tips that could help you sell your home quick and for top dollar in Carmel Valley, CA!   I have been fortunate to work with investor groups who have completed dozens and dozens of successful remodels over the last few years. Many of these remodels cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in many cases.  While being involved with these, I have noticed some trends.  Many of the things future home buyers point out when looking at these remodels that they like the most, actually aren’t that expensive and give the home some major POP and a WOW factor when selling.   I have listed 5 items that cost roughly $5,000 if you did all 5 that would spruce up and give your home the true WOW that could help sell your home quick, get you top dollar, and in many cases double the $5,000 investme...

I was so pleased that my friends at the Stonepine Equestrian Center in Carmel Valley invited me to come stay over the weekend. Anytime is beautiful here, but especially in the springtime when the weather is mild during the day and just a little cool at night, cool enough to sit by the fireplace with a glass of wine.   And speaking of wine, there are now 22 vineyards that have opened up their wine tasting rooms in Carmel Valley Village just down the road a couple of miles, and they are having a combined event this weekend, I understand. No wonder, the Big Sur Marathon is being held at the mouth of the valley along the ocean at Big Sur this weekend and thousands of people come to Monterey County for this event. www.carmelvalleycalifornia.com/indexwine.html Here at the Stonepine Equestrian...

Carmel Valley is a master-planned community located in between the metro inland and the central coastal communities in San Diego, California. It is the most recently developed area of the city that has newer construction. There are many nice areas available with recent listings ranging from $299,000 for a condominium all the way up to a 9.3 millon dollar home, and a majority of the area is upscale suburbia and has blended well along the interstate 56 (Ted Williams Parkway), some of which are near some of the best premiere restaurants in the area. It is also home to a dinner theater called Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, where you can have assigned seating with dinner and a movie in the same place. There are currently 15 active attached listings and 59 detached listings in the 92130 zip code o...

Carmel Valley Real Estate Market Report November 2012   First and foremost, Carmel Valley is a community of beautiful homes, parks and open spaces.
