The seller will want to know that the buyer can get a mortgage therefore a pre-approval letter is something that has to be presented. In the case of a cash purchase a proof of fund. letter.

Sapphire answered:
I'm a neighbor of 330 Donahue, I live up the street a bit. I bought my house over 10 years ago and have seen many seasons! I also work in SF, so I can compare the climates.

The fog here is similar to Sausalito, but not as foggy as San Francisco. We benefit from our location situated below the ridge of the Headlands, and yet still several hundred feet above sea level. The ridge holds back a lot of fog that otherwise rolls straight through the Golden Gate and blankets the city. We're also high enough to rise above low lying fog.

Fog season here is summer through early fall. Other times of the year here fog is not common. The amount of fog during fog season varies quite a bit year by year. Some years we've had lots of foggy days, and other years almost no fog at all. When it comes, usually it rolls in but clears up at some point in the day and is not a perpetual state.

For me, the spectacular views we have up here more than make up for foggy days. I have take many snapshots of the dramatic dream-like fogscapes that billow and flow across Mt Tam and over the hills.

Hope this helps!

House Hunting:

Since you are just starting your search you may not be working with a Realtor® at this time. If this is the case, I believe you will find the post below quite informative:

MLS Data Accuracy – Where to search if you’re “without Realtor®”

If you have not done so already, you should ABSOLUTELY obtain a Pre-Approval first. Please be aware there is a “night & day” difference between a Pre-Qualification and Pre-Approval. Unfortunately, many people in the industry use both terms to mean the same thing (especially Retail banks like Wells, BofA, and Chase). They are not the same! Even if the top of the page says “Pre-Approval” it may not be. For quick run-down on how these differ please see: Not having a True Pre-Approval will put you at a competitive disadvantage as far as any future offer.

Best, Steve

Patrick Ritter answered:
Depending on where you live in Marin, there may be local requirements governing drainage from new construction. Local codes usually follow basic California and case law regarding water rights. Typically downstream owners must accept the runoff flowing in natural channels, including peak storms. However, if an upstream owner has diverted stormwater from another water course, you may have some recourse for downstream damage. The first thing is to assess the nature of any upstream changes (if any). As a civil engineer and real estate broker, I've evaluated a lot of stormwater issues in the Bay Area, so email me with any specific questions.
