4546 Malcolm Ave in Oakland

Welcome to the first "featured property" post.

4546 Malcolm Ave
in Oakland in a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom ranch stlye house. It has nice open layout with plenty of light. The 1316 sq ft home sits on a 10,000 sq ft lot and is perfect for someone looking for the convenience of being close to Oakland, while in a more forest like setting. Listed by the John Cashman Team, they're going to be listening to offers on July 5th.

Flickr Slideshow

Download an MLS listing sheet. I have a feeling that this can be done another way other than uploading a pdf to flickr, but this will do for now. I'm open to ideas if you have them.

This is a great house. If you're interested in more information, email me.

Computer Problems

It seems like I've been caught in the perfect storm of technology failure. I'm not going to take the time to detail it. But believe me, it's wide reaching and maddening.

Hopefully this fix will give me the chance to try some things with the next few posts.

Tapping The Brakes

According to the latest news from Dataquick, it looks as if the red hot Bay Area housing market might be slowing down a bit. Looks like pretty good news to me.
Home prices in the Bay Area continued their upward climb last month, although at a slower pace. Sales were strong, but not record-breaking, a real estate information service reported.
"Market trends are remarkably stable. There are still more buyers out there than there are sellers, putting upward pressure on prices. The only change we see for the immediate future is a slowing rate of appreciation," said Marshall Prentice, DataQuick president.
