As this VIDEO Tour of 939 Via Rodriguez displays, here you can live close to all of the important venues but feel so far removed from the hustle and bustle.
It is a remarkable home tucked away in the foothills of San Juan Bautista just a mile from Hwy 101 which means “Gilroy Premium Outlet Center” and CalTrains are just 15 min. from here. 30 min. going the other direction takes you to the beaches and Monterey. San Juan Oaks Golf and Country is just down the road and there is a tennis and basketball court within this gated community of “Rancho Larios”.
Imagine breathtaking views in every direction. Then consider these features: 5 bedrooms plus a study/guest quarters; 5 full baths; 4 car garage; 2 fireplace, 4,700+ sq. ft. of living space, and all sitting on 21,700+ sq. ft. – a half of an acre. 10′ ceilings and 18″ diagonal tile with in-laid marble. Then, there is the ‘chef’s kitchen’: built-in frig, double convection ovens and microwave, a 6 burner commercial stove, custom drawers and pullout shelves, granite counter tops and a large preparation island.
The 19 fruit trees and grow boxes are on an automatic watering system and the huge backyard can become any flavor of playground you want.

This VIDEO Tour of 766 Avenida Del Piero in San Juan Bautista turned out really well. It is a gorgeous executive home which sits on a professionally landscaped , half acre and is bordered by a 510 acre Agricultural Land Trust. It offers 3 good size bedrooms and a nice office, 2.5 bathrooms and a finished, 3 car garage and 3,415 sq. ft. of living space. Travertine tile and plush carpet, 10′ & 12′ ceilings, recessed lighting and remarkable views out every window makes this home very desirable. It is an entertainer’s dream.
The good news is that it was available for you to buy.
The bad news: we received multiple offers, it sold over the asking price and sold in just a couple of days. People from many different areas were calling about the home. One gentlemen was going to drive down from Oregon (a 6 hr. drive) to buy it. He had seen the VIDEO Tour and wanted the home. However, to each all I had to offer was a different listing I am working on, in that same community, which should be on the market in a couple of weeks.
This has become my good news, bad news experience: with a nicely staged home and great marketing materials my listings sell quickly and typically for more than the owners asked. I’m becoming more comfortable with: “Sorry, it went quickly, however, I’m will have another listing in that same subdivision. Would you like me to send you it’s information?

This VIDEO Tour of a nice home on a tree lined lane in Willow Glen, San Jose just makes you want to be there.
1817 Comstock Ln., is a turn-key, 6 bed. 3.5 bath home in the Doerr Park neighborhood. It has the pool club, sizable tree studded park and a dog park – all within a short walk from here.
Significant, silicon valley employers are a short drive away as is the San Jose airport, Westfield’s Valley Fair shopping, Santana Row, the Tech museum and so many venues are near by. And the schools: Cambrian Elem. & Branham H.S.!
Text, email or call me for your own, personal tour of this home. It has a full master suite down stairs and another upstairs. There is slab granite and Corian counter tops, marble floors, tile, hardwood floors, 5 burner gas stove in a functional kitchen island etc. There are just too many features to mention here. The seller is offering it for $1,399,800.
The best return on your home improvement dollars is in the kitchen. This article offers 10 suggestions for kitchen updates in 2017.
While the mailbox, garage and front door have the highest return for their costs, the kitchen is the #1 investment room inside the house. While you may not get 1:1 return you will get more of your money back in the form of a higher sales price than a home with a dated kitchen – you will get more bang for your buck than say, money spent on a bedroom.
Besides, don’t we spend a great deal of time in the kitchen? Especially when family and friends are over. Holidays, special events etc., often evolve around the kitchen.

Media are so invested in ‘reporting’ sensational news that often, stories are made out of nothing. For example, all of the major networks this week have reported a “hike” in interest rates – as if that was news worthy.
First of all, a “hike” in the woods is typically a big deal. A “hike”can also refer to down hill movement. So that choice of words is used out of the media’s numb mindset of “breaking news” and “shocking developments“. A more appropriate word to describe an interest rate increase would be “adjustment” as in, “interest rate adjustment“. Our speech patterns however, have gotten lazier so saying a 3-syllable word like “adjustment” might be too much work for media-types.
Consider the truth about an interest rate increase. If you get a home loan of $424,000 at 4.5% interest rate for a 30 yr. loan, your monthly principle and interest payment will be $2,085.83. Last month, that loan might have only cost 4.25% with a payment of $2,085.83. The total difference in this “shocking development” is $62.50/mth. That’s it. And, that slight upward adjustment translates into $178 more gross pay per month needed to qualify for the 4.5% loan. No big deal (NBD) – right?
Having said this, in a season of increasing interest rates, there is no value in waiting for better rates. The slight adjustment in payments pails in comparison to typical appreciation of the home’s value. Just a 5% increase in our example home’s value would be $2,208/mth (annualized). So, don’t procrastinate buying or refinancing a home rationalizing to yourself, “I’ll wait until the rates go back down”.
