My friend and colleague Colleen McFerrin at Bayside Real Estate in Alameda, CA has a new listing and I wanted to highlight it because it is a very beautiful home and a great value for an investor or someone looking to buy a home to live in.

Sometimes very special properties come onto the market. Sometimes a famous person lived there, or the home’s historic importance is of special interest, or the quality of the interior decoration or updates are interesting.

Watch the great video above and call Colleen now for more information and a private showing!
