ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE THIS WEEK…
We are getting lots of showings at 1219 Regent this week.  That listing is noted as Active/Contingent.

If you want to check out Active/Contingent properties, it’s is probably a good thing!  IF you like it, you may find a chance to get into a backup offer position and if the first one doesn’t sell, you can step in!  People need to know that not all contingent sales work out.  It could be your next home!

Quick Glimpses: 
The Guarantee Fee…is going up!  What’s with that? NYTimes 
Big Deal for the 26 Billion $ Settlement…Don’t bank on it. LATimes
Unsold inventory this week  123, last report 120

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! www.MarilynSchumacher.com to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
