Slim inventory creates huge offers….

The wind is free! And so it feels to the kite surfers at Alameda’s South Shore Beach.
Folks are feeling the pinch right now.  Inventory is slim and interest rates are super low…..what do you do?   As a buyer?  As a seller?

Each person needs to make his/her mind up.  It’s that simple.  And be peaceful with your decision.  And go to the beach and count the kite surfers!

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! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
