2212 Hillside Dr, Burlingame

If you like a lot of natural light and are looking for green construction, this house at 2212 Hillside Drive in Burlingame  is a must see. With so many windows in this newly constructed home, you do not need the lights on at any time of the day. Listed by Leah Noher and Victor Aenlle/Coldwell Banker, more info @ www.2212hillsidedrive.com.   4 bedrooms/3.5 bath 3714sqft offered for $ 2,625,000.

On May 23rd a 3 bedroom/2.5 bath condo with a one car garage  in Foster City was auctioned off on-line. It sold to the highest bidder for $ 564,500. The cut off was at 1.07PM. With 5 minutes to go the price, which started with an opening bid at $ 300,000 had reached $ 536, 500. At this point only a few bidders remained. I was surprised  to see few neighbors and no other realtors to watch this new way of selling a property in our area. Even-though USAuction Advantage did not allow any contingencies to be written into the contract, there were still several parties interested. The last comp in this complex sold for $ 540,000 and I know of one bidder who dropped off when it reached this mark. The seller obviously had to agree to the final price and we will not know what it actually sold for until escrow closes. The final bidder had to be aware that 2% of the purchase price had to be paid to the auction company by the buyer and that a large assessment for around $ 38,000 per unit is being discussed.

Burlingame Centennial Book 1908-2008

I recently listened to Joanne Garrison the author of Burlingame Centennial. She was a guest at the Burlingame Hillsborough Newcomers Club and told us why “living in Burlingame is a special privilege”.  If you are interested in knowing how the town of Burlingame was started and what changes the city of the trees has seen over the decades, this book is for you. A great coffee table book with a beautifully designed cover by Jean L. Silveira and an interesting historic read. The book can be purchased through the Burlingame Historical Society for $ 70. www.burlingamehistorical.org

The Evolution of the Blog

The interactive way of communicating on the web is certainly not a new idea. However I did not know that the world of blogging was created 10 years ago. Last week NPR ran a series of different topics about blogging. There is so much to learn about blogging and now there is talk about microblogging. This means sending short blogs, including audio and video blogs from your cell phone. I am excited about this new way of communicating with buyers, sellers and other realtors and bloggers in 2008. If time allows, I will even read one of the books given to me for Christmas: Buzz Marketing with Blogs FOR DUMMIES!
