Dinosaurs Rule San Francisco This Weekend!

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

Now, it goes without question that everyone will be spending the weekend preparing for Sunday when the 49ers destroy play the Ravens in the Super Bowl. But, if you have kids (and even if you don't), you'll want to check out Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco [map]. Yes, you read that right, dinosaur (and Erth, for that matter). This show, straight from Australia, gets underway at 11:00 am and is part education, part fascination. Come meet the Meganeura, the Australovenator and the Titanosaur!

Super Bowl Sunday is Not Just About Football

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

Devil's Slide Tunnel looks like it is getting closer to opening.  If you haven't noticed the updates, there is now a median between to the two North bound portals and the road has yellow striping.  The faux wall has a concrete footing that has been painted and weep holes drilled into it.  Overhead street lights have also been installed.

Seems like our timing is coinciding with a real estate market that is becoming red hot!  Sellers are now seeing multiple offers and prices going over asking.  Buyer frustration is high and their expectations are being lowered so they have room to negotiate up in their offer bids.  News reports are showing double digit increases in pricing throughout the Bay Area from last year with sales being at a 5 year high. 

Inventory throughout the Bay Area is low.  Sellers that don't have an imminent tunnel opening in areas off the Coast still have not put their houses up for sale.  San Mateo had one fixer upper that ended up with 83 offers.  Coast sellers now have a great opportunity when selling.  We are getting calls from Realtors throughout the Bay Area asking when we have any new homes come up for sale to please call them.  Realtors are selling homes before they go into the MLS. 

If this seems like deje vu to you, it does to us as well.  The week after Super Bowl Sunday is the start of our regular selling season.  If you are thinking of selling, don't wait to start de-cluttering.  Spring will come sooner than you think. 

We don't know how the real estate market will progress. The global economy affects us as well as local conditions.  Interest rates are still low and consumer confidence has increased.  The Debt Ceiling has been pushed off until May.  If you have been thinking of selling, your wait is going to pay off.   We feel there is a "sweet spot" of timing which is rapidly approaching.  Now is the time we can see clearly what is happening in the market.  Call us at (650) 712-0411 to talk Real Estate.

Learning the Art of Listening for Children

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

You can't shut off your ears, and you hear things all day long. But, how well do you listen?

There are shows at 10:30am, 11:10am, & 11:50am. The show is free, open to the public, and takes place at the Congregational Church of San Mateo (map).
