Wanted: sucker to buy or rent overpriced property * In every market, there are overpriced homes for sale or for rent that sit and sit rather than being scooped up.  Some home owners use the wrong approach in the hopes of attracting a good buyer or tenant. http://sanjoserealestatelosgatoshomes.com/wanted-sucker-to-buy-or-rent-overpriced-property/ #realestate

Buying in a seller's market? Do not expect a perfect house or condo! Home sellers do not need to do a lot of repairs to get top dollar for their homes, so buyers should anticipate absorbing these costs as part of the true cost of home buying today.http://sanjoserealestatelosgatoshomes.com/buying-in-a-sellers-market-do-not-expect-a-perfect-house-or-condo/

Photos of your furniture or wall will not make buyers want to purchase your home! Silicon Valley home buyers shop for their new house online first, and the most important element in their shopping (once price, size and location are considered) is the property condition.  That translates to this: photographs are extremely important! http://sanjoserealestatelosgatoshomes.com/photos-of-your-furniture-or-wall-will-not-make-buyers-want-to-purchase-your-home/ #realestate

My daughter and I ate there on July 18 2012. The food was good. Our waitress, Ina, was wonderful. But the manager was a jerk! We saw him arguing with our very overworked waitress in front of most of the restaurant (embarassing). On our way out, I told him that the food and service were really good. Instead of thanking me, he said "yes but sometimes I have to correct her (our waitress)." No need to bash his hard working waitress. I hope she finds a better job soon - they had her doing far too many tables (she had 11 that night) and instead of "public praise, private criticism", the obnoxious manager was doing it backwards. If they could get a new manager, it would be a really great restaurant. But right now, he makes the place uncomfortable and stressful for both employees and patrons.
