10 Reasons to buy a home

I don’t think I could have put this any better myself.  This is an older article, but the same rules apply today.  There is a great opportunity to get into the real estate market if you think you’d ever like to own your own home.  Interest rates are incredibly low and there are great deals out there to be had.  Here’s the link to a story in the Wall Street Journal that spells out the benefits.

Remodeled 3 bedroom home in the Sunset / Parkside

I have a great new listing in the Parkside area of San Francisco.  For those living in the city who don’t know the distinction, you’d think of the area as the Sunset.  I lovingly call the area San Francisco’s Suburbs.  I’ll be open this Sunday, March 27th, 2011 from 2-4pm.  Please stop by and see it.  2425 22nd Ave.  Heck of a deal at $749,000
