American West Properties
is a Silicon Valley based company. We offer residential and commercial real estate services. Our services include real estate investments, build-to-suit, land development, and property management.
.....Next to the local real estate market, the neighborhood has the strongest influence on value. ... In jobs-driven real estate markets like the one in Silicon Valley, buyers compare properties within an area close to their place of work. ....There are only a few improvements that will increase the sale price much beyond their cost. These include new paint, landscaping, a professional cleaning job and maybe new carpets and appliances. . .....Remodeling will add value up to the point where your house becomes similar in size, design and value to most of the other homes in the neighborhood. Beyond that, anything else you do could be an overimprovement, and the value of your home will not rise very much regardless of how much money you spend. ....Property value is, of course, not the only motivation for planting fast growing trees. One of the most wonderful gifts a tree offers us is shade. As Warren Buffet once noted, "Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago." .... By and large, in areas where people have more disposable income, you’ll see greener areas and a better understanding of what trees and greenery provide.... Real estate practice is the art of blending skills, balance and grace .....
