3253 Ramona - why has it not sold quickly? I know people that looked at it and decided not to make an offer (but didn't share the reason).
It's my understanding they received many offers and sold for $1m over asking at $2.9M. I believe the offers were very strong!

how often it is?
I also like www.CrimeReports.com and be sure to then type in your own address, so you can compare the crime in any new neighborhood with a neighborhood you already know.
Good luck!

In CA, is it required for the "For Sale" sign to stand in the middle of our front yard with the "pending" sign on it for the entire 60 day escrow?
You can ask the agent to remove it. It is OK. It is already sold! You are the client, it is you that should be happy.

780 Palo Alto Ave on the creek--does this make it more flood prone, especially in an earthquake? Is that why it hasn't sold?
