How to Prepare for the Bay Area’s Next Earthquake - The South Napa Earthquake is a sobering reminder that the Bay Area could be hit by a devastating earthquake at any time. Are you prepared?

KB Home Strengthens Foothold in California with New Property - One of the leading U.S. homebuilding companies, KB Home recently declared that it has acquired land for a new community of single-story, stacked flat condominium homes called Solaire. Located in Sunnyvale, CA, the new community is KBH’s latest addition to its portfolio in California.

Palo Alto: Official approves relocation assistance package offered by mobile home park owner - Park residents would receive the full appraised value of each mobile home, a rent subsidy equal to 100 percent of the difference between the average space rent at the park and average market rents for replacement housing, start-up costs equal to three months' rent, and moving expenses. Handicapped or disabled residents would also receive "special assistance."


County expands homeless programs while searching for new shelter - Faced with a shortage of beds to accommodate the county's homeless population this coming winter, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved $1.2 million for various programs targeting its neediest residents, including agreements with the nonprofit, InnVision Shelter Network.


Silicon Valley Tech Wealth Driving Santa Cruz Real Estate Boom - Santa Cruz is now the home of the million-dollar property. Between 20 and 33 percent of home sales in Santa Cruz over the last three months have been for homes worth $1 million or more, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, which is taking note of the changing fortunes of the popular tourist and surf destination.


Overall, Americans in the Suburbs Are Still the Happiest - In the Atlantic’s first State of the City Poll, more than 1,600 U.S. adults were surveyed on a wide-ranging set of topics related to quality of life, and it was found that all things considered, Americans who live in suburban areas are the most satisfied with the places where they live.

Hidden in Plain Sight: 10 Cleverly Closeted Home Spaces - Tuck your home office, wine collection or even your entire kitchen behind closed doors for all of the function and none of the clutter. Some of my favorites:
