Did You Miss Geek Day, May 25? By Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley real estate guide selling homes in San Jose I enjoy keeping track of fun and unusual holidays and events, but somehow I missed Geek Day on May 25. According to Wikipedia, May 25 was chosen to commemorate the official release date of the first Star Wars film, A New Hope on May 25, 1977. In addition to “Star Wars Day,” May 25th shares the same day of acknowledgement as two other geeky, science fiction-related fan "holidays." The Glorious 25th of May is celebrated by readers of Terry Pratchett's Discworld. It is also Towel Day, for fans of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy by Douglas Adams, As you can see, Geek Day, May 25 has a lot of events and ways to celebrate loving science and science fiction. While thes...

As a Santa Clara Real Estate Agent I am always being asked, "How's the market in Santa Clara?" The answer is simple: Not enough inventory, plenty of buyers.

  Most people are aware that the 49ers Stadium (Levi’s Stadium) will be completed by the summer of 2014.  This is fantastic news for residents of Santa Clara who live around the stadium who wait with anticipation about the flurry of business activities and resulting increase in tax revenues for the city from the $1Billion+ project.  Business owners will want to buy homes near their businesses and the popularity of this destination location will fuel further demand for the area.  The Levi's Stadium and it's surrounding businesses will make residents rich.    Not only will the latest NFL Stadium come to town, Joe Montana and friends will build a 4 star luxury hotel across the street.  But now comes word that the City Council is in talks with  developer  Related California to build a 230 a...

When selling a condo in Santa Clara I don't believe there is such a thing as too many fresh flowers, especially in the spring time. I will concede that it is probably better not to have the home look like a funeral parlor, but short of that, nothing makes a Santa Clara condo for sale more appealing than fresh flowers. Now that it is spring there is no reason not to use fresh flowers in every room of the Santa Clara condo you are selling. Trader Joes has them at ridiculously inexpensive prices. Every Farmert's Market has a gorgeous selection of the finest locally grown flowers. Even Costco has a fabulous selection of fresh cut flowers for your Santa Clara condo. Home buying may be the biggest financial investment a person makes in his/her lifetime, but it is still ultimately an emotiona...

If you are selling a condo in Santa Clara in the next few months you will probably have a lot of activity with many buyers interested in the Santa Clara Condo you are selling. In order to get the best price and terms for your Santa Clara condo you should make it look as good as possible. If the carpets in Santa Clara condo you are selling are in bad condition or smell, you will probably get a better offer if you change the carpet. Nothing turns off buyers more than dirty smelly floors. Many condos do allow laminate flooring if the condo has anyone below, so if that is the case with the Santa Clara condo you are selling then you should replace the carpet. If you are allowed to have a laminate floor, I would highly recommend it. Buyers love laminate/wood floors and they are worth more tha...
