Our Mill Valley Home is in Escrow

Sun, May 20, 2018

After last weekend’s Open House, we were thrilled to receive two offers for our home.  We accepted the first and the terms call for a close in 30 days.  So we’ll be homeless in mid June.  Can’t wait 🙂

We feel very fortunate as the buyer appears to be a good fit for our home and our neighborhood.  He’s been looking for nearly a year and had three requirements.  First, a view of the water.  Check.  Second, a chef’s kitchen.  Check.  And third, he wanted redwoods.  Check.  We have all three in spades.

Here’s the updated version of our For Sale sign 🙂


Edit:  The sale of our house closed escrow on June 15th so we are officially homeless. Now we’ll focus on the purchase of our Palm Desert condo that is scheduled to close escrow on July 24, 2018.


Our Mill Valley Home is For Sale

Sun, May 13, 2018

We’ve been working the past few weeks getting our house ready for the market.  Basically working down a punch list to make sure everything is clean and in good working order.

Our tenants vacated last Saturday and Wed was the broker’s open.  We were encouraged by the comments from the visiting real estate agents that the house shows well and is priced right.

Our agent held an open house the past two days and we had a lot of traffic.  In particular, there were five couples that visited both days and spent over an hour looking things over.  We’re cautiously optimistic that we’ll get a strong offer.
