The art of the real estate offer

Every buyer wants the home of their dreams for the lowest possible price. Every seller wants the most amount of money with the least amount of hassles or obligations. Often this difference of viewpoint and personal goals can collide during a buy-sell negotiation. It is the job of the Realtors to coach, guide and advise both sides so that nobody gets offended and everyone can come out a winner. It is often said that either everybody wins or nobody wins.

Any plans to fix up the 'gateways' to Gilroy?
Updated: May 22, 2015 - 10:48 am

At each of the three major off-ramps into Gilroy (1st Street, 10th Street, and Monterey) there is so much weed build-up, uncontrolled shrubs, trees are not trimmed or cared for, and rubbish that blows around and finds its way into our waterways. Also, the road surfaces, signage, and striping are in dire need of attention. Why doesn’t the city or county agencies take care of these “Gateway” areas into Gilroy? These off-ramps give the first impression of our town, could be more attractive, but are degraded by this lack of care and attention. Are there ANY plans in the numerous grand plans that Gilroy has put out there to address this?

When will Gilroy finally install the new LED lights downtown?
Updated: May 15, 2015 - 3:30 pm

 Why haven’t the lights downtown been changed over to LED’s yet? It seems that the whole city has already been converted, but the one area that is supposed to be a priority with the city hasn’t? What gives? Sixth street and the downtown parking lots look and feel so much safer compared to the old yellow hued sodium lights that (make) these places look like a dingy industrial area and unsafe. Good and appropriate lighting increases a sense of community, and community pride, so one would think that the conversion of downtown lights would have been done first not last.

How did he transfer into Gilroy's Christopher High?
Updated: May 04, 2015 - 8:49 am

Today I was reading about Audrie Pott in the Dispatch and the article indicates one of the people who assaulted her goes to Christopher High.  Last month I had to show proof of residence for my child who will be starting high school in the fall. I found this unnecessary. I have lived in the same location for 20-plus years. My question is, does the person who assaulted Audrie Pott still live in Saratoga and was allowed to transfer to CHS or does he now live in Gilroy in the CHS district. None of the newspaper stories indicate he actually lives in Gilroy.

Car wash fundrasiers are OK but follow all the rules
Updated: April 24, 2015 - 3:07 pm

Just curious. Saw a carwash fundraising for a church happening at the corner of Church and Welburn. I thought we got in trouble for washing our cars. Guess people don't get the picture. This is on 4/12.
