 The following is some basic information we know so far about the Economic Stimulus Plan.  It will take 2-3 months to understand how it will all fall out and if it will truly be a REAL Stimulus Plan.  There are four primary sections of the 2009 economic stimulus plan that could be very beneficial if you own or are buying a home.   Benefit #1 - Expansion of Home Improvement Tax Credit The tax credit for making energy efficient home improvements is now 30% of the cost of the improvements up to a maximum of $1,500. This means that if the improvements cost you $4,500, you would receive a tax refund of $1,500 when you file your tax returns. Eligible improvements include energy efficient exterior doors and windows, insulation, heat pumps, furnaces, central air conditioners and water heaters. ...

(Cynthia Long, reporting from Walnut Creek, CA. February 12, 2009) So the good news is, my buyers have found a property they really want, and they and the sellers have agreed to the price and terms in the contract. We’re going to open escrow. At the closing table, one of my buyers turns to me and says, “Okay, now we’re in that inspection contingency period you keep talking about, right?” I’m proud of her. She’s a first-time buyer, and she’s completely on top of all the steps in this transaction. Together, we review CAR Form BIE, Buyer’s Inspection Elections, dated 11/2008. In this form, there are 31 inspections (see below for the complete list) that I will advise this couple that they must either elect or decline during their inspection period. The beginning is easy. The seller has agre...

People sell because they want to live somewhere else, they need a home that functions differently, or they need to cash out equity. They often have a general idea of how they want to price their property, either because of what they owe or because they’ve been tracking sales in the area. At this point, it’s time to call me, the Realtor. Being a Realtor means you are responsible for doing the reality check. Before going to the property, I get a handle on the sellers’ financial position, and I work out a net sheet based on comparable sales in the neighborhood. How much money do I believe the sellers can walk away with? When I meet with the sellers, I listen to their goals. My dream homeowners have plenty of equity, are motivated by life circumstances to move, and are well-aware of the cha...

While out on Broker Tour today, I came across two new listings that I thought were worth sharing! Located in the Northgate High School District, these two homes are priced competitively.  They are located near schools, trails, transportation, public golf course and minutes away from downtown Walnut Creek.  The first home is a 5 BR/2.5 BA priced at $789,000 and beautifully updated throughout.  The second home is a 4 BR/2 BA priced at $669,950.  It has been nicely maintained and buyers could update to their personal tastes. For more information on these homes or other in the area, please give me a call!     Northgate in Walnut Creek, CA
