Toad Hollow Properties rental management transferred

Do one thing.  And do it exceptionally well.

As of this month I will no longer be offering property management services in order to focus 100% of my efforts as a broker associate with Coldwell Banker, providing Davis area home buyers and sellers with the ridiculously superior service they deserve.

If you own a home in Davis and the surrounding area and you are in need of property management, contact Zabace (rhymes with Davis) at 530-757-2818 or Please tell them I sent you. Thanks.   -Joe Kaplan

Look Who’s Talkin’ – Satisfied Davis Client #3 for Joe in 2009

I absolutely dreaded the thought of going through the home selling process, but I thoroughly enjoyed working with Joe throughout.  Joe kept me informed at all times, and I never doubted that he had my best interests at heart.

Halloween advice for Davis Homesellers

Plant rosemary by your doorstep to keep witches away.

Steer clear of ladders.

You’re in luck if a black cat enters your home or if a frog jumps into your house.

Have a happy and safe holiday!

Davis CA real estate – October fence-sitting

Before the entire month of October sales figures are in for Davis, here’s a quick note on the month’s residential real estate activity through today, per MLS.  Some closings from the last few days may not have posted to the MLS yet, so the figures are likely to increase beyond simply adding this afternoon’s and tomorrow’s closing numbers.

17 closed residential sales – Davis pop. 65,000. Quiet may be an understatement. Economic turmoil keeping home buyers on the fence. Post election pop in activity, hopefully.

33 pending sales – Majority should close in November.  Only direction is up.

118 active listings, including 10 short sales and 5 REO’s (bank-owned)  – Tight inventory.  Don’t expect significant rise in new listings until after the new year.  In sum, few buyers, few sellers, supply and demand in relative equilibrium. Prices aren’t moving much as a result. Slight slippage in price until spring, if anything.
