Saturday’s News and My Quotes

Well, they did get my name wrong in the article!

Another comment I heard this week about this write-up is a reminder that Cherryland is not actually in the City limits. It’s in the “unincorporated” part, not in the City of Hayward.

Also, starter homes can be purchased for less than $300,000 in many Hayward neighborhoods.

What? I MADE more than that when I SOLD it!

Before I Flew the Coop: My 2005 Condo

How sad is the real estate business these days compared to 2005?

The photo shown here is from a condo I owned from 2003-2005. It is now on the market for LESS than what I MADE on the place when I sold it!

In mid-2004, I moved out of this condo to buy my house, leaving the condo vacant for 6 months until I figured out what to do with it. In that 6-month period of time, the value increased considerably and I sold it for a hefty profit.

Any stories out there about smart investments? Dumb investments? Any “I-wish-I-had-done-that” stories?
