I have a new Short Sale Listing at 5318 Cherokee Way in Antioch, CA - it's about 55 miles from my office but a pleasant enough drive if you can avoid heavy traffic. It should be a successful short sale - 2 loans, one lender - Patelco Credit Union. I already have the phone and email of the local negotiator. I've worked with this client before - we get along well.
I drove over there today to add a combo lock box, in addition to the Supra Lock Box, since agents in nearby Marin and Napa counties can't access East Bay lockboxes - different keys.
Not much traffic except on the Bay Bridge - after that is was clear sailing at 2:30pm. When I left San Francisco's West Side it was a pleasant 65 degrees. With the AC on in the car I didn't pay much attention until I was getting close to Antioch. Then I noticed the outside temp reading on the dashboard: 104 degrees! Sure enough when I got to the house and opened the car door I was smack dab in the middle of summer! It's nice to have a short visit - I was there about an hour and a half between asking directions and searching for a place to get an extra key made.
I finally found Orchard Supply Hardware on Lone Tree Way just a short distance away (after having been directed previously to a nonexistent Home Depot!)
Driving back to the City was a breeze - all the heavy traffic was headed in the opposite direction at 5:30pm. As I approached the coast the FOG was rolling in, and it was a pleasant 61 degrees at home. That's a 43 degree difference in a matter of 4 hours. Where else can you get that?!
