The “Green Rush” is on!

Larry O. Doss Sunday, January 22, 2017

People from all over California and all over the nation are rushing to Humboldt County to buy up “grow properties,” land suitable for the growing of marijuana. Has it affected the real estate market in Humboldt County? I teased out some simple statistics to get a broad overview of this issue.

To get a baseline of the real estate market without the influence of “grow properties, “ I pulled up all of the single family homes sold in Humboldt County on city lots over the last 4 years. These homes, by and large, shouldn’t be affected by the marijuana industry.

What I saw was a ... Read more

What Determines the Value of a Home

Larry O. Doss Monday, June 21, 2010

As a Real Estate professional I get asked this question daily. I have my ideas and opinions and quite frankly they change as the "market" changes. But the one constant for me has been this: Any given property is worth what someone is willing to pay.

If you are trying to sell a property in today’s market put yourself in the shoes of a buyer. Ask yourself this question:

Today’s buyer studies the market to determine for themselves what a certain property in a certain neighborhood is worth.

The latest on Interiors at Elk Grove homes

Larry O. Doss Friday, January 22, 2010

It would be a good thing to take a second look the next time you visit a gorgeous master bathroom. It would be easier if one had a step or two on getting in and out of a large tub. But one of the Interior designers, Adele Lampert of Page One Interiors, Inc. in Barrington, disagrees. It is much safer to sit on the deck and rotate than think of a slippery foothold. While we often think of interior design as creating pretty rooms, there can also be underlying safety issues. Educated and experienced designers like Lampert can spot them and find solutions for homeowners.
