Dayum. Good luck.
Thanks! Good news on the Alameda house, though I'll wait to make an official announcement until we've cleared the last inspection/contract hurdles... ;-)
Is everything still going for more than the asking price?
No, not everything, but most still are. The Berkeley house seems to have been a special case of agent and/or seller craziness, though. It was priced at $850k, and will probably end up selling for more like $1250k. They got 16 offers; it was just ridiculously underpriced as listed.
