Here is a sample of the drone videos I can now do for my sellers at no extra cost to them. It is a really great tool, especially for properties with unique or large lots or simply to get a perspective of where a property is located. I can’t wait to see the drone video of a property I have coming up on the Russian River!
Hi everyone! I am very excited to be able to announce that I now have the ability to create matterport 3D virtual tours for my listings as well as Drone sky pictures and videos for my listings at no extra costs for sellers!!! If you do not know what matterport 3D is, it is a really cool technology that allows you to actually see a property in many different views….a walk through the house view, a 3D doll house view, as well as a floor by floor view of a property’s interior. Here is a link to the matterport tour of my listing I had done at 3087 Central Parkway in Dublin listed for $1.1M. Check it out and comment below to let me know what you think!

Realty World Northern CA & NV:
I am extremely excited to officially congratulate you on being in the top 15% of all agents in Realty World Northern California & Northern Nevada! This is an incredible achievement considering the company has almost 1,000 agents and closed more than 5,000 transactions in 2015.
Many agent and home sellers are opposed to or at least hesitant to accept offers from buyers using VA Loans because they have misconceptions about what VA loans require the sellers to do and they think the buyer cannot really afford to buy the house because they have chosen $0 down or very little down, when, in fact, VA Buyers can often be the strongest offer on the table! In the past, VA loans required sellers to pay for repairs and other “non-allowables.” Now, a VA Borrower can pay for all repairs, closing costs and more in some situations. The only thing a VA buyer cannot pay for is a pest report. A seller, agent or other party would need to pay for that.
There are many benefits to the Buyer using a VA loan. For example, they can put $0 down up to the VA loan limit, and only have to come up with 25% of the difference between their offer price ans the loan limit if they want to buy a home that costs more than the zero down VA loan limit. VA loan rates are also lower, the lender can credit the borrower to help pay for closing costs if needed (interest rate will go up a little to cover the cost), there is no mortgage insurance required for VA financing, and future buyers of that home can assume the loan at today’s low interest rate…Dean Simpson with iServe Mortgage discusses the these and more in his short video. Agents, home sellers and potential VA borrowers should listen to what he has to say.
