Bayview District’s New Construction a Chance for Homeowners to Get in on the Ground Floor

Posted by Larry Fox on Aug 14, 2017 12:18:33 PM

With its background of diversity and industry, the Bayview District of San Francisco holds a unique place in Bay Area history. From the shrimp industry to the naval shipyard, this community has drawn blue collar workers and provided an affordable place to live and work. In the past few years, however, many changes have come to the area, giving it a renewed sense of neighborhood, where people talk to each other on the street and exciting new eateries are opening. Long a refuge for artists with its roomy warehouse spaces and comparatively low cost of housing, the Bayview District is becoming a place for city professionals to purchase affordable houses on the Peninsula and young families to own into their own homes. Homeowners can get in on the ground floor so to speak, with affordable housing in an up-and-coming neighborhood. With ownership come the myriad decisions about organizing and storing your belongings. This is where Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets can take you from simply living in your home to delighting in it with custom closets designed just for you.

San Jose Granny Units Get a Boost with New Regulations while Homeowners Get the Benefits

Posted by Larry Fox on Jul 24, 2017 7:10:43 AM

The new California laws that went into effect in January have lessened the difficulty and cost of adding a so-called granny unit, now dubbed Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), to single-family or multi-family dwellings. San Jose has gone a step further in their attempts to ease the housing shortage that is causing rents in the Bay Area to skyrocket. San Jose’s removal of barriers for these small rental units; by lowering the total square footage of the lot needed for an ADU and increasing the maximum square footage of the unit itself to 800 square feet, can create a great opportunity for you - the homeowner - to benefit. While it may not be built for resale, you can rent this unit out to increase your monthly income. It can also be used for multi-generational living, for instance with boomerang kids or aging parents. It can even be used as a short term rental (STR) like Airbnb.
