Inventory is low, employment is high, and buyers are out in force. The Silicon Valley is loaded with young professional people who are looking for a place to call home. Many are looking for homes that do not exist. It is sad, and I want to help, but I can only help those who are realistic. We have a joke in the real estate business. We make fun of people who want 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 1600 square feet, less than 5 years old in Mountain View for $400,000 or less. When I hear this I have to bite my tongue to keep from laughing. This is an extreme case. $400,000 will get you a 2 bedroom 40 year old condo with less than 1,000 square feet in Mountain View.  What about the the less extreme cases? How can you tell if what you want is realistic. It is not that difficult, even in a market with hi...

Is this a good time to sell your Mountain View Condo or Town Home?  The answer is YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!! I can not stress this enough. If you have a condo or town home in Mountain View you are thinking of selling, don't hesitate! The market is screaming for you to get it done, now. There are currently 3 town homes/condos on the market in Mountain view. I did not forget a zero. 3. In a seller's market there would generally be 40-50 units for sale. In a buyer's market you need to have over 90 units for sale. 3 is so low there are no words to describe the market. Apple and Google are growing like the plant in Little Shop of Horrors, and like the plant, would love to take over the world. The number of people moving into the area with good jobs and the need of a place to live is astronomi...

The short answer is go to court and let the probate judge decide. But let me start at the beginning. If the Personal Representative has full authority under the Independent Administration of Estates Act then he/she has the right to sell the house but needs to go through the Notice of Proposed Action process. What this means is that the Personal Representative has to notify all of the heirs to the probated Mountain View Estate to that he/she has accepted an offer and they get 15 days to object, although sometimes they are given a longer period. If an heir objects to the Mountain View probate sale then everyone goes back to Court for Confirmation.  The judge can then make a determination if the sale should go through. The judge may either say the sale is ok or may require an over bid proc...

And by certified I don’t mean on Sesame Street. There is nothing worse than getting to the closing of your Mountain View probate sale and finding out, oops you can’t close.  Or even worse, you are an out of town Personal Representative on this Silicon Valley Probate Sale and you are told there is a hold up. You need a CERTIFIED COPY OF YOUR LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION in order to close the sale. Where are they? Did you leave them out the house? Did you leave them with your attorney? Make sure that you have these letters in the certified form in your possession so that you can get them to the title company so that you can close this escrow. There are many things to remember when you have the responsibility of an estate, whether it is a large or small one. There is a lot of paper work. You ...
