ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE THIS WEEK….
46 Captains Drive got an accepted offer last Friday.  

I put 218 Cypress on the market this past Tuesday.  I’ll be there this Sunday between 2-4pm.  It’s a stock co-op, a bit of a tough sell since buyers (leaseholders for 99 years) need to put 20% down and can’t rent the property.  But it is a great small, single level home, with one shared wall.  If you have questions look at the website or give me a call.

Quick Glimpses
State of Foreclosures  – This was sent to me by one of our elected officials.
Another repeat of the above…different source.
Want a mortgage?  It’s way harder, even if you’ve got $

Broker tour played catch up but caught up due to my own open house on Tuesday.

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!
