California Home Sales Cool in August as Price Gains Temper - Following a hotter than usual summer of homes sales, California’s housing market cooled in August, but still posted higher year over year for the seventh straight month, C.A.R. reported this week.

The Battle Over Prized Land Under Silicon Valley's Trailer Parks - The free market wouldn't plop down a trailer park just a few miles from downtown San Jose. At least not today, in a sharply spiking housing market that has made the metropolitan area one of the most expensive in the U.S. But that's where you'll find Winchester Ranch and its 111 mobile-home lots, just down the street from an upscale shopping mall, a newly created development zone, and a major highway interchange.

Drought Dogs Developers in California's Soaring Housing Market - The state’s dry spell is creating challenges for developers at a time when home prices are soaring because of limited inventory. The metropolitan areas of San Jose, San Francisco and San Diego had the nation’s biggest gap between the number of new jobs and residential building permits from 2012 to 2014, according to a report Wednesday by the National Association of Realtors. Now the drought, into its fourth year, stands to curb affordability further.


Larry Ellison group buys hotel in downtown Palo Alto - PA Hotel Holdings paid $71.6 million for the 86-room Epiphany Hotel, according to Santa Clara County public records. That purchase was for the hotel structure and a ground lease, a transaction that experts say underscores the white-hot job market in Silicon Valley.


How to Spot a Bad HOA - Buyers can avoid their own homeowner association horror story by keeping an eye out for these items during the search.

10 Furniture Essentials for Small Spaces - Here are items to opt for when a full-size sofa would be the elephant in the room. Some of my favorites:
