THE SECOND STORY | May 10th, 2013

Great sunsets in Alameda…

This was photographed early in January 2013
BOOMER CHICK MUSINGS – my take on what’s happening out there: here, then, elsewhere.
Broker Tour Tuesday  What a day!  There were 13 on the tour!  Since it was bike to work day (most Tuesdays are bike to work days for me), we took a photo with bikes out at the shore park on the north side of Bay Farm Island, then I had to ride up to the west end….to meet the appraiser for Haight Ave. at 10:30, then rode back down the all the way to Eastshore stopping at houses along the way!  But a good dent in getting more inventory on the market!
Highest and Lowest priced NEW listings  Yes, one of these is the Thomsen Garden Center!
Active and Pending listings this week   67, 52  first time in a long time there are more active, than pending!  Let’s see how long that lasts!
ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE AWARDS THIS WEEK…remember this is only my perspective!
Winner  so fix the yard….or leave maintenance!
Get me a facelift needs roof, some new siding, and some updating
That’s a wrap!  Carry on!  Make it work!  Call if you have questions!

best, marilyn

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!
