David and Devin handled the sale of our family home in Berkeley after the passing of my dad.  They handled all of it (moving, contractors, minor repairs, plumbing issues) ect.  It was hard enough having to sell the house, but they were really easy and thoughtful during the whole process.  The open  house was fantastic and we sold the house in record time.  It was all very seamless.  My sister in law was also selling her house in another area and marveled at how much more helpful David and Devin were in the sale of our place than her agent was in selling her place.  I highly recommend them if you are looking for an agent.

Sound Off: What tech innovation has been the biggest help for real estate transactions?

press_sfchronicleA: Property search websites like Zillow and Trulia, as well as an agent’s personal site, created the most profound impact on real estate transactions during the last decade.

These websites have revolutionized the way buyers search for property. They make home information available to everyone. According to Inman News, 90 percent of people use a property search website when shopping for or selling a home.

When searching for properties, it is better to use your agent’s home search website. A good agent will have a website that allows their clients to find homes. These sites share the search history with the real estate agent, providing insights about that client’s needs and wants for their next home.

My property search website (www.BuyEastBay.com) allows you to search for timely and accurate information on all the homes listed in the Bay Area, including Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco and Marin County.

Bay Area Home Sales Great For Sellers, Tough On Buyers

The Bay Area’s housing market stumbled in May — prime home-buying season — as high prices and low inventory held real estate sales well below normal levels, according to a report Thursday.

Sales of single-family houses were down from the same month last year in the East Bay, Peninsula, and South Bay, while prices were up, according to real estate information service DataQuick, which released the report. Prices for all types of homes were at their highest since November 2007 in the nine-county Bay Area…….

“It’s a great time to be selling real estate in the Bay Area area right now,” said Devin Ratoosh with Marvin Gardens Real Estate in Berkeley. “It really makes it easy for sellers when there’s this much competition lining up for a house.”

DataQuick reported that Contra Costa County’s median sales price gained 13.8 percent from May 2013 to $479,000, while Alameda County was up 25.8 percent to $644,000.

A Family’s Struggle To Keep, Then Sell, Its Home

One day, more than three years ago, Suzanna Wertheim lost her job as a hospice nurse and learned she had terminal cancer. To cover chemotherapy and other health costs, she dug into her savings and unemployment benefits and quickly fell behind on paying the mortgage for her three-bedroom home in Oakland, California……

The three-bedroom house is about 2,200 square feet, “a whimsical tree house with a view,” says Rebeccah Wertheim-Knapp, the middle child. None of the kids were living there, so Wertheim’s eldest daughter, Kaiya, began figuring out how to sell it. They put it on the market last June, asking $664,000. Almost no buyers expressed interest. In December, they brought in a new realtor team and lowered the price to $575,000. One of their realtors, Devin Ratoosh, says hundreds of people looked at the house, but none made an offer. After lowering the price to $475,000, they got one promising bid—an all-cash offer for $450,000.
