2 examples of a hot market

Goslings at Crown Beach.

1252 Sherman…

…was a hot mess. It sold for $1,195,000 in Dec 2017 on a list price of 987K. In April it was listed again…and it still is/was a hot mess.  This time it was listed for $1,249,000 and sold for $1,275,000.

I was told by the agent that he found a multi-million dollar home in Tiburon. Bought it.

725 Baywood Rd

…cleaned up okay. But not many upgrades. It was listed for 879K in 7/2017. It sold for 980K a few weeks later. It was listed again in April for 980K. Now it’s pending. I was told by the agent that he found another house in Harbor Bay.

In a different environment, these Sellers would have lost a good bit of $$$. In this environment…uh, no.

Easy come….easy go….for some!

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!
