With the housing market so tight on inventory and the competition amongst buyers so fierce not everyone can get into a house right now. Some buyers are so fed up they are starting to look for alternatives. Today I had the wonderful opportunity to receive a private tour of the nearly completed Pacific Bay Vista Apartments in San Bruno.
So many really nice amenities I almost don’t know where to start: A private clubhouse with lounge, fireplaces, wet bar, an enclosed terrace with fire-pits including a private Movie theatre. A state of the art fitness center with an indoor climate controlled pool and underwater music.
Numerous covered and furnished cabanas with fire-pits and professional gas BBQs are located throughout the complex, there was even a fenced pet exercise area…
With its great central location, close to shopping, the coast, easy access to 280 for a carefree San Francisco or Peninsula commute, its kind of already being half-way to anywhere you would want to go, making it an ideal place to make your new home.
The first units become available August 1 2013 with more coming on line as they are completed.
Floor plans: 1 Bedroom 1 Bath; 522 sq. ft. or 632 sq. ft.
2 Bedroom 2 Bath; 838 sq. ft. or 942 sq. ft.
Every unit has its own terrace or balcony, and private attached parking.
Rents from $ 2143.00 to $3046.00, Space is limited !

I have been successfully specializing in the sale of Millbrae homes since 1978.
I grew up in San Francisco and have been a Millbrae resident since 1964.
When my sons, Ken and Dave, were playing baseball, I was involved in the Millbrae “Little League” Baseball Program for 7 years.
I was a college basketball official for 25 years officiating in five different conferences in the western area of the U.S. I also officiated in the “Final Four”.
A few reasons that I enjoy living in Millbrae are the moderate weather and the downtown shopping. I also like being close to the airport, BART, and Cal Train.
There are many people in Millbrae that also grew up in San Francisco that I see and have coffee and a sandwich with at Leonardo’s Deli!
Feel free to contact me anytime with your Millbrae real estate related questions!

Summer is here in the Bay Area! Yay! Now what? Well, that’s a good question! There is a lot of “down time” when the kids are on summer vacation. Since we don’t want them playing on the computer and gaming all day, I have come up with a few things to pass the time. I am always adding to my list because it’s never enough! So, here are a few things that I will be doing this summer with my 9 and 13…
- Fruit shopping together (if they’re going to be home a lot, they should be eating right!)
- Haight St. (drive)
- Chinatown (BART)
- Embarcadero Street Fair/Farmer’s Mkt Sat (BART)
- Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica (walk/picnic/collect sea glass or drift wood)
- Make a collage of magazine pics of things they like
- 500-1000 piece puzzle
- Home made chocolate chip cookies
- Peninsula Humane Society (to look around and seek out volunteer opps)
- Music lessons
- Make flyers to water the neighbors lawn, walk dogs, wash a car, deliver some real estate newsletters (to earn $$).
Please add to the list, even if you don’t have kids! Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
Tight lending guidelines have weighed on the U.S. housing market during its ongoing recovery. Most lending institutions during the past two years raised their credit score requirements to as high as 650, making it nearly impossible for many people to obtain a loan.
Wells Fargo made it a little easier for homebuyers this past year, when the lender lowered its credit score requirements on FHA mortgages.
“Under its new policy, Wells Fargo will accept borrowers with credit scores of 500 to 579 if those borrowers can make a down payment of at least 10%,” said Robert Lentini, a mortgage expert who blogs for the website thetruthaboutmortgage.com. “For borrowers with credit scores of 580 to 599, borrowers must put down 5%. Borrowers with credit scores of 600 or higher can make a 3.5% down payment.” Read more
So, I thought I would write a fresh new post about why I love San Bruno to go along with this fresh new spring season that is upon us! When I first uprooted from San Francisco and went to work at the Hyatt in Burlingame, I didn’t even know that San Bruno existed. It wasn’t until I became a real estate agent 15 years ago at Prudential in San Bruno that I ever stepped foot! It wasn’t but a few months of working here that I bought my first place in Shelter Creek!
A few years after that, we bought our place on Cypress Ave. A big ‘ole fixer upper built in 1907! Still here and no plans on moving! I shouldn’t be driving since everything I need is within walking distance or a short bus ride. There’s the library down the street, Speedy Spot, Wendy’s, and every kind of food from around the world on San Mateo Ave. Read more
Last week there were “0″ homes for sale in San Bruno…today there are 20! I am not kidding! From last Thursday to this Wednesday there has been a whole movement of for sale signs that have gone up! Yes, they all have offer dates and yes, they will all sell fast, that is the kind of market it is …and these homeowners have heard!
It didn’t take long for these homeowners to figure it out. We have word of mouth and plenty of news media talking about the real estate inventory being all dried up. Home buyers are making 20-30 offers on different homes and just getting beat out! I hope we are heading towards a nicer market where there is plenty of homes for people to choose from and home sellers able to sell and make a profit! Read more
Being in real estate, I get requests to live in the best school districts. People look at the API scores… (http://www.cde.ca.gov/nr/ne/yr12/yr12rel96.asp).
I have been married to a school teacher for 35 years. Parents cannot expect that living in a good school district will manufacture Stanford graduates. I believe teachers are important but parents and family are more important. You must lead by example. You go to work everyday, and they learn to go to school every day. When your children come home you ask what they learned, review their homework assignments, talk to them about the day, help them with their homework assignments, get help if they need help and you are involved. This needs to be done at all ages. Yes, the way you approach the subject needs to change, but cannot be eliminated.
