Do You Appreciate Gas Prices Dropping?

HELLLOOOO MY BEEEUUUTIFUL WONDERFUL BAY AREA!…

For those of us in a certain age bracket…shortly after I posted the price drop of gas by a couple dollars in our Great Bay Area… (one of the much younger than most of us)… on the move… up and coming… very brite young entrepeneurs FB friends I have… posted his own comment on why we’re silly to get excited over saving a few bucks… HAH!…

Personally I was amazed at his pompous thinking…this younger generation feel they know all things smart!…HAH! (must be nice to think its no big deal to save a couple bucks on gas per gallon) this GenXr has no idea at one time we literally raced to get in line in the wee hours of the morning ie) 3- 4-5 am (forget about 6am you would be too late)… to get gas that jumped from 37 cents per gal. to 63 cents!! Not to mention gas was rationed at one point… Call me “old” call me “silly”… Life repeats itself in so many ways… I remember vividly how my Mom would constantly remind us by example and always repeating the importance of comparing prices and saving every bit we could…

Its nice FB allows comments from all … how unfortunate some very brite folks can be “a day late and a dollar short”…!! or is two dollars short… and yes people I do save pennies too.

Flat Out False…LOL

HELLOOOOO MY WONDERFUL BEEEEEUUUUTIFUL BAY AREA!…. We have yet another glorious gorgeous day in Our Cities by the Bay!!… as you go about your day today… as you meander through a local farmers market, go for a walk, sit by the water’s edge, enjoy a lazy start to your day with a cup of your favorite joe… thought it would be enlightening and fun for those of you keeping up with our ever hot hot real estate market by whatever means you choose… to have a few chuckles regarding listing descriptions… Jon Boyd, past president of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, joined forces with NAEBA members worldwide to compile a translation guide of listing agent euphemisms.

They include:

  • Grandma’s house: Realtors interpret this to mean a) the house hasn’t been updated since Grandma moved in or b) it still smells like Grandma.
  • Great potential: The operative word here is “potential.” The “potential” in one case pointed to the fact that there was a large crack through the center of the foundation caused by an earthquake.
  • Light and bright: Bring your sunglasses because everything in this baby will be white: walls, cabinets, tile. Where have you seen this before? Oh yeah, the hospital.
  • Meticulously maintained: It could mean the owners never bothered to update the property. Maintenance is admirable for plumbing and HVAC, not so much for cabinets, carpets and windows.
  • Mile to the beach as the seagull flies: And you’ll wish you had wings. Those straight-line calculations can mean some pesky traffic lies between you and the lifeguard shack.
  • Needs TLC: You may freely substitute “OMG” for “TLC” here. Boyd says the phrase “TLC” often means the house has been abused and requires more than mere redecorating. “The average homebuyer who sees HGTV a couple times before they go looking is not sensitive to that,” he says.
  • Newer furnace and AC: “Newer” has a certain “truthiness” to it. In one case, both units were 25 years old. When the listing agent was asked why she made such an audacious claim, she replied, “Because each one of them had received a new part within the last year.”
  • Retro decor: It’s ’60s flashback time. Can you dig the original paisley vinyl floors and avocado appliances, man? Groovy!
  • This house just had a total facelift: Loosely translated, it means the seller painted everything. But paint, like a facelift, can only hide so much.
  • This house will go fast: Might have been believable in the first 30 days on the market, but not anymore. One home with this description had been on the market 247 days.
  • Turnkey: Meaning they don’t want to have to haul away all that orange-and-brown-plaid-polyester-covered furniture.
  • Very bright, sunny home: Often true because there’s not a tree in sight.
  • Water view: Of course, you’ll need to stand on the upper deck railing and crane your neck. With binoculars. On an extremely clear day.

Have a Brite Happy Day!  Isi

Buying vs Renting

Not sure about becoming a home owner? Do the numbers and the decision is real easy.

Now Here’s a Kitchen Sink!!…

$15K Sink

HELLLOOOOO My Beeeeeauuutiful Wonderful Bay Area… talk about some beautiful weather these last few days!… Our Bay Area is still buzzing all around regarding our current real estate market… today… I thought it might be fun for those of you looking around for a unique sink for your new or existing home… check this out…

This is one fancy very unique sink!

all purpose sink

 

Truthfully, the KWC Waterstation is more a multifunctional food prep station than a simple sink. It has wedge-shaped cutting boards, bowls and drainage pans that rotate around an industrial-strength faucet. So you can wash fruit, defrost meat and chop then throw out veggies all in the same place.

It’s truly the home chef’s dream sink. Unfortunately for most amateur chefs, it will have to stay that way. The sink, which comes with a massive $15,000 price tag, is nearly impossible to find in the United States.

The sink, about the size of a large bus tire, is sold as a freestanding island unit or can be built into a countertop or an island—which would require some kind of custom installation on top of the hefty price.

Anyone interested??

Have a Great Sunny Enjoyable Day!!…
