Celebrate Bay Area House Values Hitting a Record High with a Closet Makeover

Posted by Larry Fox on Jan 30, 2017 8:15:29 AM

If Chicagoans discuss the Cubs and Portlanders chat about the rain, Bay Area residents belabor house prices. It’s always on our minds—rising mortgages, increased rent prices, and an ever-growing influx of new neighbors make housing our number one concern. Some even joke that newcomers to the Bay should stay for a couple of years and then move along to make space for others to cycle through. We know house prices are high, and growing steadily higher.

As 2016 drew to a close, single-family residences in the Bay saw an all-time high in price (according to the Case-Shiller Index). What’s more interesting, in my opinion, is that homes in the bottom third of the market increased the most, surpassing the rest to reach a level almost 5 times what it was in the late 80s. Homeowners, this means that your “lower-end” property is becoming more valuable than ever. If you’re looking to sell and need a way to increase your profit—or if you’re just looking for a way to increase your home value without the pressure of selling—you may want to consider going in for a closet makeover.

Walnut Creek is one of my favorite towns in the whole Bay Area. It’s a cool little arts hub, with a history of being quirky and dancing to its own beat. People there love their art, and they also love their wine. I love the galleries and restaurants that populate the downtown scene. You can go there and feel for a little bit like nothing has changed around the area.

Custom Design Helps Willow Glen Husband and Wife Share a Small Closet

Posted by Larry Fox on Oct 20, 2016 1:01:51 PM

Renovating a home isn’t a vacation for most folks, but a client I worked with in the Willow Glen area of San Jose was more stressed than usual. She was going through a remodel of a gorgeous Colonial Revival built back in the mid-1900s. The house needed updates, of course, but she’d also purchased it with her second husband. Once the remodel was done, they would be moving in together with all of their kids—and sharing a closet for the first time.
