Montclair Just Sold Ary Assadi

5765 Harbord Dr. in Oakland's Montclair neighborhood was a pleasure to prepare, list and sell. My seller client had lived there for almost 20 years so prepping the home for sale took some planning, organizing and executing. First I helped her find a wonderful new and smaller home to purchase. Once the move took place we had a crew of people come to clean, paint, and stage to the home and get it ready for the market.   One lucky buyer took advantage and now owns this beautiful home. The final sales price came in at $1,160,000 and the new owner will surely makes this their home for many years to come. See more details at: www.5765harbord.com   Ary Assadi East Bay Modern Real Estate 510-833-9691 Ary@EastBayModern.com

Congratulations to my client on the purchase of her first home in one of Oakland's most revolutionary Net-Zero communities known as Atomic City. I first viewed these homes well over a year ago and knew that it would be a perfect property for a discerning & environmentally conscious client. These micro homes (no larger than 800 SF) feature rainwater collection cisterns, heat pump HVACs, solar panels & solar skylights just to name a few of the green features. For more information on these properties see: Atomic City.

photo courtesy of Baran Studio   As home prices climb throughout the country and especially in the Bay Area, more and more attention is turning to what I like to call flex-architecture. Popularized by television shows such as HGTV's Tiny House Hunters, many buyers who are feeling priced out of our real estate market in the East Bay have been reaching out to myself and East Bay Modern Real Estate looking for alternative residential options. While building can be prohibitively expensive and is not for the faint of heart, many younger buyers (who often don't yet have children) are increasingly exploring the idea of pre-fab, container or even tiny homes.   The most notable companies dealing in the pre-fab construction market are Blu Homes and…
