I got the book and read most of the chapters during a trip to Kona, Hawaii, in 2019. I forgot all about this book but when I saw Kathleen's book review challenge blog post on ActiveRain.  I thought, here is my opportunity to share some marketing strategies  with my colleagues, and at the same time, I will try some of these strategies myself. About the author:After being rejected from medical school, Ryan Fletcher took a break and moved into real estate.

On May 1, 2019 the sale of 274 Beachview #18, Pacifica, California recorded, setting a new high for the townhouse complex with a sale price of $1,050,000.This meticulously maintained 3-bedroom unit, with a straight-on view of the Pacific Ocean, has been renovated and remodeled beautifully. Its clean lines, modern vibe, and gorgeously landscaped back yard were appreciated by an owner familiar with the complex, resulting in a happy seller and happy buyer.At the sellers' request, I marketed this townhouse privately. It was not on the multiple listing service, there were no open houses or public showings. The result met every expectation of the seller. Just as all people are not the same, marketing of a property is not the same for every situation. If you are thinking of selling your San Ma...

Buyers, avoid multiple offers and get settled into your own townhouse with stunning ocean views. Seller is willing to sell off market, before it goes on our Multiple Listing Service.This 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath townhouse has a floor plan that is a mirror image to that in the web site for the listing that sold and closed escrow in December. Today's opportunity has a more modern vibe, as these photos from a few years ago show. Current owner uses the dining space shown above as a den/library, with a combo living/dining area. There is a greenhouse attached to the master bedroom, and an updated patio and ocean-facing yard. If not sold, this townhouse will go on our local multiple listing services next month, at an offer price around $998,000.00.

The real estate market is slowing throughout much of the country, and here is no exception.Sellers, don't let that discourage you. If this is the right time for you, there's no point in delaying. Properly priced and marketed, properties are still selling, and selling well. The most recent example of this is the lovely townhouse at 290 Beachview #38 in Pacifica.Listed on November 1, two offers came in within hours of each other. The property is now under contract as of November 29, with only 1 short 5-day contingency. If all goes as expected, the buyers will be in their new home in time for the holidays, enjoying the tranquil ocean views. The sellers will be able to move forward on the next step of their life journey.I am often asked, "when is the best time to sell," the short answer is ...

Pacifica, California, is a beach town just south of San Francisco. It's near enough to hop on BART and be in downtown SF in just a few minutes, yet it still savors it's small-town feel. People often think "fog" when they think of Pacifica, but residents rejoice in it and celebrate annually with their Fogfest, which began in 1986 as a celebration of the town and beautiful coast.Fogfest 2018 started September 29 and will continue one more day, Sunday, September 30. Check out the list of activities and head over to Palmetto Avenue in Pacifica tomorrow for a fun-filled day, whether in fog or in sun. Dress in layers and enjoy what the day has in store.

San Mateo County Coastal Trail - Devil’s Slide A beautiful Pacific Coast Trail!  Devil’s Slide Trail is above the Pacific Ocean. It’s a segment of Highway 1 turned into a multi-use trail, for hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders, and runners. It’s about 1.3 miles long. It became accessible after the Twin Tunnels opened in 2013. The Twin Tunnels Connect Half Moon Bay with Pacifica. These Tunnels bypass the section of road that had been closed numerous time due to landslides over the years since the opening of CA-1 in 1937. Coming from Pacifica, there are two small parking lots and another one end of the Trail. If there is no parking, you may want to try to cross the Tunnel to see it there is parking on that side. There are few benches along the trail for users to rest, overlooks, Drinkin...

Ocean view properties under $1,000,000 are few and far between in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties.262 Beachview #4 is one of those rare ones, and didn't stay on the market long. Offers were heard on this 2-bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse 12 days after it went on the market.2 offers were received, with a third verbal. All were over list price.If you are looking for a property like that at 262 Beachview in Pacifica, you must be prepared to act quickly. And that means preparation before the property comes on the market.For more information how you can be in a position to make a strong offer when your dream house comes on the market, find a real estate agent who can guide and assist you through the process.Contact me if I can be of assistance to you.
