The holidays are just around the corner.  With family coming into town you might be looking for activities to do.  Here is one of our favorite Thanksgiving day outdoor activities (besides football in the street).A wonderful hike in Marin County: Cataract Falls

 

A hike to Cataract falls is a beautiful escape just about 5 minutes above the town of Fairfax.   It is uphill at first but then it is mostly level, an easy hike for 8 and up; 2.6 out and back.  It follows a ridge so if it’s sunny in the winter you get to enjoy the day.  Bring layers though cause it then it drops down to the cool falls.  You can also stay on the ridge and sit in the sun or just go back and be glad you were out and about.  So pop in the bird and hit the trails.  A good Thanksgiving or Christmas hike.

 

Directions: about 5 miles

When we first meet with our sellers at their property we go through a step-by-step process in preparing their home to market. This book really defines these steps to help our sellers sell their homes. Quick overview? See below!

 Step One: Un-cluttering. This is the first and most important step. Clutter makes rooms and the entire house feel smaller. Who wants to buy smaller? Live with the basics only. Great un-cluttering words to live by...sell it/store it/or give it away. Less is always more.

 Step Two: Cleaning. The uncomfortable feeling of an unclean house causes apprehension, and a buyer…

Home Selling Tips on How to Price Your Home to Sell offered by Peter and Karin NarodnyIn this market where buyers are very discretionary in making the decision of what house to buy, it is imperative that sellers pay close attention to what their agent is telling them about the price they set on their home.  It is unfortunate that some agents will tell sellers what they think they want to hear with a  total disregard to what the house is really worth, just to get the listing.  This is not only unprofessional, but does a tremendous disservice to the seller because they will net less than if the house were priced right to begin with.  A home is worth the most when it first hits the market and if it is overpriced from the start, the seller just gets into the discount business and chases the market down.
