2024 could be the ‘year of the renter', Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Kitchen, 12 County Home Sales (Luxury home of the week)

2024 could be the ‘year of the renter'

Bay Area says that a bare area rent tracker says that 2024 could be the year of the renter. We're going to look at some luxury homes today in Belvedere, California, and we'll do the 12-county report. Let's get moving. Okay. Real quick. Here is an article I found.

I thought it was really important because I live in a house with teenagers. They are gross and disgusting, and I constantly have to remind them to do the same thing over and over again, including stuff around the kitchen. That means cleaning out the dishwasher, making sure they take all the food off of their dishes before they put it in the dishwasher, and Yeah, all sorts of stuff.

Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Kitchen

But what you do when you clean your kitchen once a year, you should be doing it and it's because you do use your kitchen, you get grease and grime, a little bit of dust, and all sorts of stuff all around the cabinets. This is what we just real quick thing to go through, right? Start at the top, start at the top part of the cabinets.

If you have a shelf over your cabinets, make sure you dust that and get rid of all the dust bunnies. If you have. Ivy still, which has not been cool since the 90s. Maybe think about getting rid of that and or dusting it, getting rid of all the dust, taking it outside and dusting it, and then doing a nice dusting. The cabinets guys, I'll tell you, I don't know how many times I look at my cabinets, which are painted.

They're not even the wood shelves are painted white and Of all colors closest to my color and they need to be washed down quite frequently because we cook and we fry and we bake and we do all sorts of stuff and grease just starts flying all over. So you get a quick, really good paint degreaser or soap and water.

We always say soap and water are safest, but if that doesn't cut through maybe find a degreaser of some sort. And if you have. Chips and dings and scratches like I do maybe now's the time to consider sending down the divots and Filling them in and then painting over it I know it won't look as great, but it won't be like a primer white chip behind it speaking of which when you Have your cabinets painted, make sure to tell the cabinet maker, whoever's painting it to pry color, the primer, the same color as the paint you're painting, because if you do get a ding, it won't be a white chip behind a gray surface, just saying.

Trust me, wipe all the surfaces down, getting to get into the cabinets and drawers. You get a lot of dust and dirt and crumbs that just happened to pass around. Now's a good time, to clean up your cabinets and pull out your cutlery tray and clean that out too, because I can guarantee you have crumbs and dirt in there too.

Counters and small appliances. Take a look at your toaster. I have a toaster a toaster oven and a coffee maker and the coffee maker needs to be cleaned out once in a while. So grab some vinegar, throw it in there, and do a couple of runs on that and clean out all the nasty stuff and the hard water, all the lime and scale.

Make sure you do that and get rid of all the crumbs. Cause that is a fire hazard. Believe it or not. It's not as great as the duct. Dirt. The dryer vent needs to be cleaned out, that out once a year, this should be done at least once a year, two big appliances, we lost something behind the oven a couple of days ago, I pulled it out and as I rubbed my pants up against the side, there was a bunch of greases, so I cleaned it off, but it also got stuck on my jeans.

So gross, and nasty, but it's because you use your kitchen, right? So make sure you take a quick look and pull out your. Your oven clean back there as much as possible. There will be spiders and cobwebs, but there's also dirt and old rice and whatever that falls through the cracks. There you go.

And then floors. Now's the time to take a quick look and do a wet mop, a damp mop. Not really a wet mop to a damp mop. We have wood floors, so we do damp mopping and then look for any chips or what have you, and now's the time to go and look for it. There you go. All right. A couple of things for you to look at when you do your spring cleaning for your kitchen.

Area trackers say 2024 could be the year of the renter and quite possibly is. If you're thinking about moving to another place, now might be a good time unless you're stuck at a thousand dollars a month for a house. You're probably going to, if you move, you're probably going to be spending three, three to four or five thousand dollars a month, depending on the house and where you live.

So make sure you take a look and anywhere you live in California, especially the Bay area, it's going to be more expensive today than it was five years ago. Just things you have to consider. I was telling my daughter about politics and everything. And the whole idea behind it is it's going to get more and more competitive with inflation.

So many people trying to move here and everything else is just, there's too much. Demand for the supply. The good news is prices probably won't go up for rentals. It's here mostly because it's already expanded so much that there you go, he'll be finding a way to convert some of those commercial properties into apartments or condos.

It's not going to happen. All right, there you go.

Comprehensive Bay Area Real Estate Report

12 Bay Area County Report

Let's take a quick look at the 12 County Bay area report. Now that Belvedere, I believe is a Marin County Marin is one of the top three places that we're looking at. Actually, it's not the top three because it's a smaller County.

It just tends to not have as many sales, but The average price still remains pretty high up there. San Mateo is averaging 22. 4 million whereas Santa Clara County is averaging 2. 6. Let me see if I can open that up for you so you can see it. Now I know this isn't super exciting to look at. They're pretty boring numbers, but I can right away tell that if you're in Alameda County, San Francisco County, or Santa Clara County, and you're thinking about selling, it's a great time to sell because you're getting about five, To almost 6 percent over list price on average.

And I tend to, when the market's crazy, I tend to get 10 to 15%, if not more on my listings because of my negotiation strategies. So I helped bump that average up a little bit. It doesn't mean you can't get a good deal. You just have to find the right property that's been on the market for a little bit and the right buyer, the right seller that's motivated to sell.

Pricing still is pretty important. So the reason why I'm doing it this way is because what I'm planning on doing is after a few months, I'm going to go back to the first of the year. After a few months, we'll have, be able to have charts for you. So you can see it more in graphic views instead of a chart view because this is boring, and having visuals is a lot nicer for everybody.

But since I lost my last spreadsheet, it's going to be a little bit of time before I get back into it. Now, San Benito, I have a listing coming up in San Benito. And it's a beautiful house. One owner property. And this is going to be an amazing listing for you to take a look at. It's going to be about a million dollars.

And the reason why San Benito isn't that high in numbers. Is because of getting to Hollister. It's a little more difficult and a huge portion of San Benito County is still agriculture. So the mindset there is low go slow. We're not really trying to develop. However, developers are in there pushing houses way more than the infrastructure can help handle.

I just heard that they finally are going to start putting together the intersection to get from 101 to 25. So that's going to help with traffic. Now they just need to widen the roads to a larger capacity so that it can handle the traffic because everyone knows going from Hollister to 101 is horrible.

That's one of the reasons why you see that price down so low. Same thing with Solano. If you're looking for affordable living in the Bay Area, Solano is the place to live. Now, if you look, I didn't do it this week. But Solano is up here over the Delta and it's a very affordable place to live. You have older houses, you have new developments, you have a lot of different options out there and you have the jelly belly factory.

You always get that. All right.
