Every year, a month or so before Christmas, the Oakland Mormon Temple enchants all of Oakland with its amazing hillside lighting of the Temple and its grounds.  Visible for miles around because of this prominent location, these enchanting lights help celebrate the Christmas Season.  Many families make the annual trip to tour the grounds, and to see the views of the holiday lighting around the San Francisco Bay.  This year, as always, the "Magical Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony" will be accompanied by holiday music presented by singers, dancers, a choir and an orchestra, which promises a special event.  

If you would like to be a part of this delightful event, make plans to attend Saturday, November 29th, at 6:00 p.m. at Temple Hill, 4770 Lincoln

If you have been to Oakland's waterfront recently, you have no doubt seen the beginning of what is planned to be an amazing revitalization of the whole area south of Jack London Square.  This development is Brooklyn Basin, and promises an amazing mix of residential and retail that should completely revive much of the presently sadly neglected areas of Oakland's waterways.  

The picture above presents Brooklyn Basin as it will be seen when completed in the next 3-4 years.  It is estimated to cost over one billion dollars, and encompasses 64 acres.  13 buildings of residential housing will be developed here.  Sixty to seventy percent of this housing will be for sale, and 465 of the units are going to be below market rate.  Of the projected 3100

 For the last 12 years, the annual Piedmont Turkey Trot has attracted Piedmont families, friends and neighbors to the Piedmont Excedra to begin the annual fund raiser that combines a 3 mile walk/run course through some beautifully scenic neighborhoods in the city.  It's theme this year is "Move Your Feet Before You Eat", and that pretty well defines the concept of the event.

Held on Thursday, November 27, participants can begin the run starting at 8:30 a.m. at Highland and Magnolia streets, and be done well before a pleasant Thanksgiving dinner elsewhere in the area.  This is also a fund raising event, and the net proceeds will go to benefit the Piedmont High School Cross Country Track and Field Teams, and The City of Piedmont Athletic Facilities

If you are like a large majority of homeowners today, you have some kind of household pet.  Statistically, it will most likely be a dog or cat, but birds, hamsters or fish are not out of the mix, as well.  When you are considering selling your Oakland or Piedmont home, you will need to make plans to deal with these animals when you hold your Open Home.  Without some preparation, these pets can create some issues for future buyers.  

Here are some suggestions to make the Open Home combine perfectly with whatever pet you may have:

1. Recognize That You May Have Pet Odors In Your Home:  You and your family have lived with your pet for a while, and you are used to the doggy or cat odors that exist.  They may be especially strong if you have more

Many new potential buyers of Oakland homes for sale, have a general idea of what they want in their future home in terms of price, location, yard space, square footage, etc..  Often, they will begin their search by touring Open Homes in various neighborhoods to get a sense of what is available.  Many times, they will begin these tours before choosing an agent to represent them.  Even when you have chosen me as your agent, these tours that you took were always a good thing to do.
