San Francisco Buyers Moving East // The Price is Right!

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

The East Bay continues to be a “good deal” as compared to the pricey home values of San Francisco. What is so fantastic about Piedmont is our great weather, excellent school system and convenient location.  Just twenty minutes away from the city you will find this gracious home located at 50 Bellevue Avenue situated on a beautiful tree lined street in one of Piedmont’s most desirable neighborhoods. In comparison, a $4,000,000 property in the city may get you a condominium – half the size – surrounded by neighbors and a nosy HOA, or a single-family home outside the prime locations of Pacific Heights, Russian Hill, the Marina and most certainly, Nob Hill. Other features the East Bay has to offer include its convenient proximity to the Oakland Airport, direct access to highways and multiple bridges, not to mention a variety of excellent restaurants, and more parking, which makes running errands a bit more palatable.

ART // color splash

Art Selection – Something special that is rarely done.

Michelle Bello met with us at 55 Sea View Avenue prior to selecting ARTWORK to discuss our ideas and to measure the spaces we were hoping to fill.  Michelle emailed us some choices to choose from; most are local artists.  Our goal:  to add color and bring a more youthful, contemporary look into each room while complimenting the beautiful details and craftsmanship of this exceptional home.  My goal as the Realtor is different than that of a designer.  My goal is to appeal to a wide range of buyers – the younger as well as the more mature.  I hope you enjoy what we’ve done.  Stop by on September 13th from 10-1pm to preview our work. To purchase what you see here please contact Michelle Bello.  Michelle also has wonderful art hanging in our office at HIGHLAND PARTNERS at 342 Highland Avenue in Piedmont- we invite you to stop in and take a look.  Michelle works with professionals to hang each piece safely and precisely.  Thanks Michelle!!!  I love what you’ve done.  You will find my favorite piece in the art room at 55 Sea View Avenue – I call it COLOR SPLASH.

We had two selections to choose from – This was my choice.  I liked the way the green and the blue drew your eye to the green plants inside and out and the way the blue drew your eye to the water and the blue sky outside.  The other artwork pulled you in and commanded you to focus on the ART entirely and not the home and many details in the room.  If we were at a museum or in an art gallery with the sole purpose of selling the artwork, then the other piece would be appropriate.  In this case the art complements and lightens the room.  My goal has been achieved.We had two selections to choose from – This was my choice.  I liked the way the green and the blue drew your eye to the green plants inside and out and the way the blue drew your eye to the water and the blue sky outside.  The other artwork pulled you in and commanded you to focus on the ART entirely and not the home and many details in the room.  If we were at a museum or in an art gallery with the sole purpose of selling the artwork, then the other piece would be appropriate.  In this case the art complements and lightens the room.  My goal has been achieved. Don’t forget the Garden and Home Improvement needs as well –  Power Washing, Packing, Storing, Hauling, Purging, Managing.  And reports, disclosures and permits.

Order a Sketch, book my photographer, Scott Hargis.  He is truly amazing.  He lights each room in order to obtain the very best shot.  And if the lighting is not ideal he will reschedule without complaints.  Quentin Bacon, my social media producer  is helping me to share the PROCESS with you.  I just love the PROCESS.  I have so much fun watching the transformation from Lived In to Luxury Living.  LIGHTS, Camera, Action, FLOWERS, Brochures, Websites, Print Ads, Write Copy, Blog, Post and so much more.  I didn’t realize how  many tasks I do each time I bring a home onto the market.  Not all agents do as much as I do.  I’ll move and help re-arrange, even in my heels.

Watch and Enjoy – Today we hung art and next week we meet with the San Francisco Chronicle and then Scott shoots evening photos Thursday and Interior shots on Friday.  Stay Tuned – the final product will be unveiled on line by next weekend.  Open for you to see in person September 13th.

Look for us in the Robb Report, the SF iS, the San Francisco Chronicle, Realtor.com, Real Bird, The Hills Newspaper, the Piedmont Post, the Piedmonter, the Montclairion, SF GATE, Debbi and Adam.com, 55SeaViewPiedmont.com, TheHighlandPartners.com and many other websites and social media sites.

Hope to see you on the 13th!
