The bright season of Christmas and New Year holidays has recently ended - a time of magic, kindness, warmth and family comfort. But even more magical and unique is the New Year, met in his own home. In this case, the preparation for the celebration itself becomes a holiday, because in every decoration, every twinkle and sparkle on the Christmas tree you create a small miracle with your own hands - a corner of happiness, where you and your family see off the outgoing year and meet new hopes.

The Russian-speaking team for the purchase of real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area will help you fulfill this dream.

This unusual workshop will be held in the most comfortable relaxing environment with wine and cheese.

Some visitors to past workshops have already become happy owners of their own homes in the Bay Area. Meanwhile, right now the market situation is very favorable for acquiring a home. For the second year in a row, the cost of housing in the San Francisco Bay Area has been steadily declining with the increasing number of houses on the market. In the past year, banks lowered the rate by an average of one percent. This means that you can afford a house at $ 200 thousand more, or your monthly payment is reduced by an average of $ 400. At the same time, real estate prices have stabilized, which gives you more opportunities to negotiate the terms of the contract and the purchase price. The same trend, according to forecasts, will continue in 2020.

Buying your home in California can be your personal result for the first twenty years of the new millennium.

  • Lilia Garipova is a specialist in buying and selling real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has more than 14 years of experience in real estate, is well-versed in the residential real estate market and can choose the most beneficial options for the client.
