Relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area

Welcome to the Future of Real Estate! Welcome to Baron & Chestney Real Estate!

For those of you who have recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, or who are planning to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area and make it your new home in the near future, we here at Baron & Chestney Real Estate would like to welcome you to the bay area! We think you will find that this is truly one of the most wonderful places on earth in which to live. The bad news is that the average housing prices throughout the San Francisco Bay Area may come as a shock to those who have relocated to the bay area from areas other than, say, Manhattan or Tokyo! People definitely pay a premium to own a home in the bay area – and it is not one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations by coincidence, either. This is “prime real estate”! The combination of natural beauty, great weather, proximity to the ocean and mountains, hundreds of parks and nature preserves, and excellent employment opportunities, to name just a few things, make the bay area such a desirable place to live that it continues to steadily drive property values, rents, and home prices up. The supply of housing just never seems to catch up to the housing demand in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have limited amounts of land available on which to build homes in the first place, due to the peninsular geography of the region, strong environmental concerns, and an overall “anti-development” attitude in most of our bay area counties helps to keep the supply of real estate relatively low in general. Therefore, you may find that it can be quite difficult to find an affordable home. Perhaps better stated, you will generally find that your home buying dollars just do not buy as much home in the Bay Area as they would in almost any other place in the United States (or in most places throughout the world, as well, for that matter). The average home price in San Francisco would buy an enormous mansion in many places in the U.S., yet it may only buy you a 75 year old 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 car garage house with a tiny back yard in a very average neighborhood in San Francisco. Location, location, and location, as the old real estate adage goes! In any case, we at Baron and Chestney Real Estate are here to help you find a home that will meet your needs and make you happy — and to save you thousands of dollars in the process, as well! Baron & Chestney offers full service, discount commission real estate brokers who will get you a realtor rebate when we represent you in the purchase of your new home.

On any real estate purchase anywhere in the bay area, Baron & Chestney Real Estate can get you a home buyer cash rebate of up to 2% of the purchase price of the home, after close of escrow. Yes, even brand new homes sold directly through new home builders may apply, as well! Thinking about buying a brand new home from a home builder in a new residential real estate development? Call us BEFORE you visit the model homes! Many builders offer real estate broker commission incentives. In fact, as the bay area real estate market cools, these commissions can be quite substantial. The amount of the broker commissions will vary from home builder to home builder, but the catch is ALWAYS that a real estate broker MUST accompany you on your very FIRST visit to the new development, to register you, and for the realtor to register, as well. Do not go see the new model homes without calling Baron & Chestney Real Estate first! One of our discount real estate brokers will check to see what incentives the builder may offer to realtors, and then we can arrange to accompany you on your first visit to see the model homes. If we do not go with you, there will never be a chance for a home buyer rebate. Once you put your name on the builder’s list, there can be no realtor rebates and no realtor incentives. Whether you have arrived in San Francisco yet, or if you are still in the early stages of planning a move here, please feel free to give us a call. A few of our discount real estate brokers are San Francisco natives, but many of us at Baron & Chestney Real Estate have experienced moving here from quite a long distance away. We know our territory very well, and will do our best to get you the best home value for your money anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the meantime, please feel free to peruse our real estate listings, and avail yourself of the many home buyer’s services that you will find on our realty website. You can search on our site for homes for sale by accessing our home database search, use the mortgage calculator, view our properties for sale, and, best of all, use the “Shop For Me, B & C” feature. This feature will enable us to do a customized home search just for you if you provide us with some preliminary information about the type of home for which you are searching. Best of all, it’s all free, of course! When in doubt, or if you have a real estate question for one of our discount realtors, always feel free to ASK B & C, or Contact B & C.
