Now for the big reveal on our floors! I decided to grind and polish the original concrete slab instead of covering it up with some other material. It may sound simple, but it really is a lot of work done by artisan craftsman who need to know what they are doing in order to get the best result. First off, […]
I get questions or comments all the time about how Eichler homes may be considered “unsafe”. Most of the time that comes from someone who doesn’t understand this type of open post and beam construction or the use of wood paneling. Here I’ve taken a few photos that may highlight where building codes of the late 50s early 60s might […]

Well you are hearing it here first, some very exciting sales this week: The Mossbrook Eichler had something like 18 packages out which turned into 7 offers. It ended up at about $1.7m — yes, $300k over list price and where 2 doors down I just sold in January a brand new rebuild Eichler at $1.556m. Crazy?! The Fairorchard Willow Glen Eichler, which was completely updated (with Blomberg sliders by the way) had offers that pushed it up to $1.75m where the highest sale in that neighborhood was about $1.5m last year. Crazy?! So, what I think is happening is the ripple effect. People who were thinking they could get into Sunnyvale or Cupertino around $1.8m+/- have accepted that won’t happen, so they are being pushed to their next tier choice which will be Mossbrook and Willow Glen. That means they have a lot more ability to drive up prices in those areas from $1.5 to where we see them now. Is it sustainable? Probably. Just because one person offers $1.75m for Fairorchard doesn’t mean there is another one who will do it again on the next house, but it does make a statement. Just my take on it.
