Although spring and summer are traditionally the top turnover times for selling homes, some buyers are reportedly surprised to face multiple offers.For the San Jose Lynbrook High townhome at 1013 Tulipan Drive, Michelle Carr Crowe and the Get Results Team did see multiple offers. Yet some homes in the same area have yet to receive offers.I'm curious to hear what non-Redfin agents say about multiple offers in May and June of 2019.To read the original MansionGlobal article of June 11, 2019, click this ...

Recently Redfin's CEO was quoted on his definition of motivated seller-and one of his main answers was the house is vacant. Redfin agents primarily represent buyers and that answer makes sense when viewed as one potential sign that someone may be committed to moving on when a home is neither being lived in nor rented. However plenty of people own homes free and clear and keep them vacant to keep their options open.When talking about looking for Motivated Sellers, here is my Criteria for 5-Star Motivated Seller Clients in San Jose, Cupertino and all of Silicon Valley.For example, the Sellers of my newest sale at 1013 Tulipan Drive in San Jose were definitely Motivated Sellers-they met all of the criteria below. Together as a team we got the job job done beautifully, quickly and with the ...

by Silicon Valley home guide and REALTOR Michelle Carr CroweHave you thanked a tree yet? May 16 is National Love a Tree Day,Trees provide shade, fruit, oxygen and stability for our soil. May 16 is a today to celebrate and show love, care and appreciation of trees. Hug a tree, walk amongst trees and thank trees for the fresh air they provide. I thank God for making trees for us to enjoy.Did you know the average adult tree provides enough oxygen for four people daily? That's amazing!   Trees provide more than just beautiful landscapes. They reduce soil erosion and help moderate climate temperatures as well as give us oxygen. Large quantities of carbon are stored in their tissues as trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Most species of trees tend to be long-lived. There are some...
