My grandfather's headstone.
A cemetery plot is considered real estate too, yes? According to head of Lone Tree Cemetery where I bought my burial package, I didn't actually "buy" the real estate, but I purchased "the right" to be placed there.

It was 2005 when I purchased my cemetery plot as I was feeling less than enthusiastic about life. According to the receipts I found in my file, it appears that I spent approximately $10,000 on a plot and burial package, including a super-basic casket, hearse, graveside attendant, and a bunch of other weird stuff. 

Now, a site can cost $8,350-$15,000 depending on views, etc. I'd say my purchase has held its value over the years! 

I didn't bother buying the site with a view, since nobody'll visit me there anyway unless there's booze.

If you want to enjoy a view in real life. stop by our open house this weekend. Details are below. Come and visit us before Halloween!

What is the attraction to buying a brand new home?

For most buyers, it is the predictability of a new home that is most attractive. This is especially important for people who are very busy with their life, career and family commitments.  New homes are now built with super energy efficient features and solar, which add to their desirability.

California State Law offers certain protections to consumers with newly constructed homes. For info, CLICK HERE

The buyers we represented on this purchase were relocating here from out-of-state.  We negotiated price and concessions to make it more affordable for them.

Welcome, K. family!
