How's the Silicon Valley Real Estate Market? Statistics and graphs don't quite capture the essence of today's Silicon Valley real estate market.  Here's the e-mail message I received from the Listing Agent this evening in response to my offer.  "Hi Lloyd, Thank you for your offer on 448 Judy Ave.  We received a total of 20 offers and have decided to do a multiple counter.   Unfortunately, your offer did not fall into the group that we countered.   I wish you all the best in finding a home for your clients.  Many thanks for all your efforts." My client's offer was $20,000 over list price, "As Is" (drywood termites included at no extra cost), 31% cash down payment, pre-approved buyer with no inspection contingency, no appraisal contingency and a 7-day loan contingency.   Proof of funds in...

Is this a good time to sell your Sunnyvale Condo or Town Home? The answer is YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!! I can not stress this enough. If you have a condo or town home in Sunnyvale you are thinking of selling, don't hesitate! The market is screaming for you to get it done, now. There are currently 3 town homes/condos on the market in Sunnyvale. I did not forget a zero. 3. In a seller's market there would generally be 40-50 units for sale. In a buyer's market you need to have over 90 units for sale. 3 is so low there are no words to describe the market. Apple and Google are growing like the plant in Little Shop of Horrors, and like the plant, would love to take over the world. The number of people moving into the area with good jobs and the need of a place to live is astronomical. They are...

There is nothing I enjoy more than helping a family sell a Sunnyvale home left to heirs through probate. I know, it doesn’t take much to make me happy, but I am who I am. Over the years I have developed a system to sell Sunnyvale homes in probate and it works really well!    1. Look at a home and see if there are valuables that are worth selling in the Sunnyvale home in probate. Many homes are left with enormous amounts of personal property, sometimes with value and sometimes not. For example crappy cars have value, but beautiful over stuffed furniture does not.   2. If there is something of value to sell I usually recommend calling an auction house to come and take over the job of selling the personal property they believe will sell. I like DGW, but there are others. They sell the prop...
