Cupertino  Tax-Free Capital Gains Benefit Expires December 31, 2010 By Michelle C. Carr-Crowe and the Get RE$ult$ Team, Your San Jose Lynbrook and Cupertino Homes Experts The biggest threat to a seller’s bottom line in the coming years isn’t only the potentially declining market values or the affect of short sales and foreclosures on home values: it’s that the Tax-Free Capital Gains Benefit expires automatically on December 31, 2010. Unless the U.S. Congress extends them, under Section 102 of the 2007 Act the current capital gains rate reductions will sunset December 31, 2010, at which time the rates will revert to 20 percent and 10 percent. According to scuttlebutt from the real estate lobby, any extension looks unlikely to pass due to the current economic hardships endured throughout ...

Nifty Free Trulia Local Price Trends widget for Your Blog by Michelle C. Carr-Crowe and the Get RE$ult$ Team, Your San Jose Saratoga Lynbrook & Cupertino Schools Experts While reading and learning on ActiveRain tonight, I saw a cunning little widget on another AR site. You can click mine and learn how to make one of your own. Cupertino Real Estate - Trulia This is one of several widgets availabe. This one allows you to show local trends for listing prices for the past year in two different cities on the same graph. The bad part is no matter what "neighborhood" you select within San Jose, the stats remain the same (won't go by zip bode for example and Alum Rock shows the same number as West San Jose). The other problem is there was no listing for Saratoga, CA! So I made the best of thing...

End of another month, and time for the stats!  I compile these stats on a daily basis to help understand what the market is doing. There are several numbers that I collect.  Active homes represent homes that are active on the market as of that date.  The "pending" catigory are homes that are pending sale.  And the SOLD numbers, are the sales (escrows that closed) on the MLS for the last 30 days.  Can have a margin of error (+/-). Single Family Homes, Cupertino through the end of July Common Interest Units (Condo/Townhome), Cupertino through the end of July Looking at the stats that are presented, what is your impression of the market?

Hiking in Linda Vista Park, Cupertino CA Ever wanted to do a great hike, close to home, but feels so far away?  Try Linda Vista Park.  It is located on Linda Vista Drive in Cupertino.  At first you wouldn't think you can do some hiking here, but the path is there, right up to the top. The park as play structures, and the hiking trail can be found from the middle of the parking lot going up the trail.  The hike is for moderate hikers, as it is pretty much an uphill walk to the top of the hill.  When you get to the top, you will be rewarded with a view of the SF Bay, the bridges, Mountain View, San Jose, Cupertino, the hills and the city. Just watch out for poison oak.  It can grow heavy in places after the winter/spring rains, but dies back a bit in the summer.  The hike to the top shoul...

  Have you ever thought about that statement?  When something good happens in our Real Estate lives, it always seems to be due to us, because we are so awesome. I got the lender to fund the loan.  I got the title company to clear title and close escrow.   I got the buyer to the closing and got him to sign the papers in time to get it recorded.  I negotiated the deal and got the seller/buyer to accept what it was that I wanted. The common word or phrase in the above paragraph was "I"  "I GOT" etc... So let's look at the other side of the coin... The lender didn't fund the loan.  The Title/Escrow company didn't sign off on time and THEY didn't get the deal recorded.  The other agent didn't do this/that.  The buyer didn't bring their stuff to closing, so it didn't close.  I'm so mad at the...
