Free Class “How to Help Your Buyers Win and Get the Home in a Seller’s Market” By Michelle Carr Crowe, Cupertino real estate agent In most of West San Jose, Cupertino and Palo Alto, it remains a “Sellers Market”.

Michelle Carr Crowe is the co-author of “What to Know Before Buying or Selling a Home in Cupertino”. This Free Class “How to Help Your Buyers Wi...

Or experience, in that I've been involved in real estate for 40 years and licensed for 28 years. Or even that I enjoy What truly sets me apart is mine is a "family business". My mother was licensed for 35 years before she passed away and I was blessed to learn so much from her. My clients are like my extended family-the cousins I just hadn't met yet-and our relationship continues even after the transaction completes. Our family's helped families buy and sell Silicon Valley homes for over 40 years. We offer Guarantee...

What Happens When Home Sells for Over Ask Price But Below Appraisal?   by Michelle Carr Crowe Inspired by a question, on Trulia, this is a fairly common problem, especially in Silicon Valley's predominately sellers' markets in cities such as Palo Alto, San Jose and Cupertino. When a contract sale price is over asking price but under appraised value, one of three things happens:  1) Buyer pays the difference and moves forward with the contract 2) Buyer backs out (and home goes back on the market again) 3) Buyer and seller re-negotiate over the price.
