THE SECOND STORY | March 28th, 2014

Take a deep breath (but not for this season’s new roses in Alameda)!

It’s rose time all over Alameda!  Take a deep breath and savor it!

BOOMER-CHICK-MUSINGS – my weekly take on my simple life….(or not)



Only 3 properties on the tour, in the rain, this week.  Saw them, got wet, and moved on!

New  7
Active  1 (Eclipse was marked on the mls as sold…but it wasn’t)
BOM back on market  2
PCH price change  2
Pending   13
Sold  16  check out the sold properties this week….specifically on Broadway.  I wonder if these folks came from SF.
Withdrawn/Cancelled   1

ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE AWARDS THIS WEEK…remember this is only my perspective!
Even though I haven’t seen the ‘new’ house, I remember when it was not so good.  So based on the photos that showed up this week…I’m giving it I’M OUT OF REHAB!  Nothing else struck my fancy this week.

Have a nice rainy weekend (I hope!), and that’s a wrap!

Please call or email if you have questions about real estate!  And thank you for the lovely referrals that continue to come my way.  I am very blessed.

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!
