This is a new video of the remodeled 1,946sf single-story house on Manzanita in Carlsbad that just hit the MLS today for $799,000. Kayla and I will be there from noon to 3pm on Saturday for open house, and Richard will be there on Sunday during the same time period – stop by!

There is a tease in here that wifey will make an appearance, but my camera got turned off – hopefully it’ll be in the movie. But she has promised to share a few thoughts on camera here soon.
Home improvement doesn’t have to be a daunting and expensive endeavor. Ingenuity and the internet will take you a long way!
Here’s an example of how to turn a drab-looking 1970s townhouse into a chic, modern home without spending millions!
More scenes from the seven days of filming shot over the last 15 months. Plus a visit with wifey to the real Enchanted Tiki Bar at Disneyland.
The producer and director of the documentary film is Giorgio Angelini, who is an architect by trade and filmmaker when he can. Here’s how he will fund the rest of the project:
He might be able to avoid taxation due to unforeseen circumstances. Here is more from the IRS:
The documentary-film production continues, with the crew of four spending two days in town this week. Guy Mossman is the cinematographer – he also did the documentary ‘Buck’ which won at Sundance:
The video shows us trying out WeVideo, which is a mobile app that provides full video production on your phone. It already has 3.5 million customers, and Jostein is committed to bringing it to the realtor community next:
Then the clip captures one of the few times Guy provided some direction – usually he is invisible, and just lets the action flow:
Chair lifts are their own cottage industry, and you can spend more than $10,000 on the fancy ones. But you don’t hear much about removing them!
Forget the price point, it’s the deal-making that is interesting about this case. The sellers of this home just acquired it last week as part of a home swap, and before closing I had arranged for vendors to do a quick tune-up. We hit the ground running, and $10,000 worth of new carpet, paint, and lighting got it ready for market in a week.
It listed for $398,000 on Saturday, and yesterday the model match across the street (listed for $392,000) went pending. It came back on market today, and they raised their price to the range $395,000-$405,000.
What do we do?
Lower our price to $389,000 – we want to be the next one to sell:
This is a tour of the Robin Williams’ $30 million Napa estate. The video is quality – a clean presentation of the stuff you want to see, and the drone work is fantastic. It’s only 1:53-min. long.
There is a 15-sec. commercial, which I try to avoid. But the rest is worth it!
There has been three categories of listings lately:
1. New listings that sell at or around list price the first week on the market.
2. Those that sell months later as price reductions finally intersect a rising market. In a slowing market (like we have now) pricing loses momentum quickly as buyers get more confident.
3. Those that don’t sell.
It’s going to get more obvious to sellers as showings slow to a crawl or less – if they want to sell this year, they need to lower their price. But hey, great news – those who are willing to sell for a price at the comps – or slightly under - should find takers.
