Silicon Valley House Hunter- Los Gatos Forbes Mill Condo Private Tour & Interview [video]

Happy Thursday, everyone! Today’s feature of House Hunter “On The Loose!” in Silicon Valley, we feature fellow Intero listing agent John van Dyk and his newest listing at 95 Church Street, Unit #2205. It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1,627 SqFt single level condo in coveted Forbes Mill, Los Gatos.

Location, security, and convenience with easy access to all Los Gatos community; I love Los Gatos and grew up coming to the downtown since a kid grabbing a bite to eat after spending an active day sailing or windsurfing at Lexington or biking the Kennedy/Shannon loop. This property has the ideal downtown location, set in a quiet section just off Main Street. Literally steps away from shopping, restaurants, Los Gatos Creek Trail for hiking and biking, public library, excellent Los Gatos High School, as well as Van Meter Elementary and Fisher Middle school.

*This video gives us a private tour of the property & features a casual interview with listing agent John van Dyk, Intero Real Estate Srv.

Coming Soon Listings – Homes in Cambrian, San Jose [Video]

It’s the end of the year of 2020 and even though there are 63% more new listings in the month of November in the Bay Area (according to Aculist / MLSlistings) housing is limited and buyer demand remains strong when traditionally we tend to see a real estate market holiday slow down.

The Cambrian Park area of San Jose is very desirable for the proximity to major Silicon Valley tech hub, shopping, restaurants and schools. One thing I forgot to mention is that Cambrian is in the path of progress with the Cambrian Park Plaza Mixed Use Village, some of us ‘old timer/locals’ remember Cambrian Park for the Cambrian Park Plaza Carousel which is now considered a landmark. 

If you’re interested in any of these properties or want to learn how we sell homes in today’s real estate market (with virtual technologies and showings) text me at 831-346-2743

What’s Your Favorite Feature of Your Home? Seller’s Letter in Saratoga [Video]

 

Seller’s ‘Love Letter’ to a buyer is a good idea – The seller can elaborate about their favorite best features of the property and the memories attached to the home. Also sometimes included in a letter to prospective buyers are neighborhood shops, restaurants, and parks. This love letter from the seller describes the pros and perceived cons and how much they think their home is worth and why. If you’re a seller would you consider writing a buyer love letter to your prospective buyers? Do you think this would benefit the sale of your home?

Leave your comments below and. your questions!

August 24 2020 – Wildfires in Bay Area & Creating a Wildfire Safety Plan [Video]

Today in this video we share the areas of the wildfires in the Greater SF Bay Area. We also discuss the importance of creating a Wildfire Safety Plan for Older Adults who are living alone.

Thank you, take care & be safe.

Lynne MacFarlane Homes

Packing an emergency kit: Assemble an emergency suitcase your family elder can quickly grab in the event of a fire. When a wildfire requires evacuation, every second counts.

Establishing good practices: Developing precautionary habits can keep an older adult safer when it comes to a home fire or a wildfire. Put glasses and hearing aids on the bedside table. Always have cell phones charged. If an older adult uses a wheelchair, walker, or cane, encourage them to keep it nearby.

Purchasing an emergency radio: In the event of a power outage, an emergency radio allows older adults to stay connected. Whether it is a crank radio or a battery-operated one, there are a variety of options to choose from.

Planning evacuation routes: It’s also important to plan escape routes from every room in the house. For rooms upstairs or homes on a higher elevation, you may want to order fire escape ladders that attach to windows. If your loved one may have trouble climbing down a ladder, they should stay close to the ground floor.

Creating a neighborhood escape plan: Just like you need two escape routes from the senior’s home, you also need two separate ways out of their neighborhood. If one is blocked by fire, they won’t lose time trying to figure out what to do. When the order comes to evacuate, it’s also important to know where a safe place to retreat is.
