How Gentrification Is Forcing Californians Out Of Their Communities - Among other problems, too few apartment buildings have been built in recent years. Developers say they have been hampered by huge impact fees that can run as high as $100,000 a unit, that cash-strapped localities in California, operating in a tax-raising environment straitjacketed by Proposition 13, have imposed on builders. The collapse of redevelopment funding has further reduced local governments’ ability to build enough subsidized housing. What homes do exist are, increasingly, snapped up by cash-rich real estate migrants from San Francisco looking to live on transit corridors easily linked to their work places in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.

No sign of a slowdown: The most and least affordable Bay Area cities for home owners and renters -Bay Area real estate is booming and unlikely to see a significant cooling any time soon, particularly in the white-hot cities of Oakland and San Francisco. Paragon's two new reports look at affordability by county, based mostly upon data from the fourth quarter of 2015 by the California Association of Realtors. Housing affordability, both in terms of home prices and apartment rents, continues to be a huge issue in the Bay Area>

Sales at a glance: an East Palo Alto million-dollar home - A recent property sale in East Palo Alto - a city sometimes referred to as the area's last bastion of affordable housing topped the $1 million mark, as seen in this week's summary of home sales.

Megadeal for affordable housing in East Palo Alto closes; all eyes on new owner's next move - An affiliate of Sand Hill Property Co. has completed the acquisition of East Palo Alto’s Woodland Park Apartments, a watershed transaction that shifts control of some of the Peninsula’s most important workforce housing following years of controversy over rent hikes, evictions and the future of the Westside neighborhood under previous ownerships.

Architectural Details Make All the Difference - Are you missing an opportunity to enhance your home with brackets, cabinet feet and moldings? Some of my favorites:
