Sellers, if you are thinking about selling your home, don’t delay.  There is very little inventory, currently a very low 21 homes on the market.  Since there is such low inventory, homes have been selling quickly and most have sold for more than the asking price.   There are many buyer who want to live in Alameda.  Now is the time to talk to a Realtor about selling your Alameda home.

 

My snap shot of the Alameda real estate market reports are important and provide valuable information over the long run.  But, if you want to know your property’s current market value, or what you should offer on a particular property, you need a Comparative Market Analysis which will compare like properties; apples to apples and oranges to oranges.

How can I lower my winter utility bills in Alameda?
Evelyn Kennedy, Alameda, Real Estate, Alameda, CA (Gallagher & Lindsey, Alameda, California)

 

How can I lower my winter utility bills in Alameda?  That first bills we receive from PG&E and Alameda Power after a cold snap are usually a shock.  Although we live in Northern California which is an area of mild climate, we do have a winter season when rain and colder temperatures greet us and that means we use more electricity and gas.

The Department of Energy reports that Americans could save between 5 and 30 percent on energy bills by practicing a few simple steps.  

According to the Department of Energy, here’s what we can do:

  • Open curtains on south-facing windows to use the sun to naturally heat your home.

  • Caulk and weather spripping to seal air leaks around doors and windows.

  • Replace your furnace filter once a month.

  • Turns down the water heater temperature to the “warm” setting (120º F).

  • Keep the fireplace damper closed during unless a fire is burning.

  • Install low flow faucets and showerheads.

  • Only run the dishwasher or laundry machines when they’re fully loaded.
