Tap into Your Inner Architect for fun and Profit: Introducing “Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era” — Just Released by Apress Media


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

Real estate investments that involve hanging onto properties for extended periods of time are a turn-off for many entrepreneurs. But buying a run-down piece of property, fixing it up and flipping it quickly is a totally different story.

“Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era” by Marty Boardman provides both experienced and newbie fix-and-flip real estate investors, working either full- or part-time, with the tools they need to strategize and complete this type of real-estate investment. The book underscores that fixing and flipping houses is a business with a solid formula. Following these steps can help serious investors sell as many as 20 properties a month and pocket as much as six figures worth of profit a year. And, with the housing market projected to bottom out at last, the time is ripe to showcase attractive real estate.

The book addresses how to find and buy suitable properties in targeted neighborhoods at a targeted price point. How to calculate rehab expenses and not under- or over-improve the properties. How to sell them with the greatest flip value in the shortest amount of time. And how to secure funding. Also included are instructions on how to buy bank-owned houses and also foreclosures at auction, and how to navigate short sales from underwater homeowners.

Tiburon California Architectural Masterpiece Now on the Market, Imagined by Acclaimed Architect Angela Danadjieva


San Francisco, California (PRWEB) August 30, 2012

This nature-infused architects estate in Marin County is so magnificent in scope and idea as to recall a grand public space. Yet the setting is secluded, the four-bedroom home at 450 Ridge Road carved into a hillside sheltered from bay winds.

Imagined by acclaimed Tiburon architect Angela Danadjieva, she built the home for herself in 1995 into the towns Hill Heaven with sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island and eastern hilltops. The architect said she placed the property just right so that it does not impose on the landscape of Tiburon Hills. Its just as impressive inside.

Danadjieva described the property as a symphony of light and space with natural and organic surroundings of water, stone and positive energy.

It is an extension of the landscape, she added. A garden pavilion – that is the main theme.

Now on the market, this home in a gated community offers impressive natural features like a majestic waterfall/fountain edged by stone staircases. Tremendous open living space waits, as well as organic materials throughout like redwood and granite.

I am very environmental, said Danadjieva. I designed it like a park, everything of natural materials.

Most captivating is the homes facade with its geometric grid of large windows framed as mountain peaks pointing toward heaven. Light pours in from all sides and through a series of awesome skylights on 36-foot ceilings.

Everything is glass, Danadjieva said. No barriers between the indoor-outdoor space.

Outside, explore private pathways and gardens on the 1.5-acre rural-in-feel property located in Tiburon, which is Spanish for shark. Situated just north of San Francisco on lovely Tiburon Peninsula, the old industrial town today boasts boutique shops and restaurants, the Richardson Bay Audubon Nature Trail and regular ferry service to San Francisco, Marin City and Sausalito.

The residence is a short walk from the bay, and is marketed as offering views, views and more views. The house certainly provides a high standard of living attributable to the design of Danadjieva, principal at Danadjieva & Koenig Associates.

Originally from Bulgaria, she was living in France when she came to America in the 1960s as winning architect in an international competition for landscaping at the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza. Danadjieva said her first job was in Richmond, Va., where she oversaw a Downtown Riverfront Plan. There, the park was the river, she said. At 450 Ridge Road, the park is home.

The property is owned by Danadjievas sister, Fani Hansen, another acclaimed Tiburon architect. Listing agent Paula Gold-Nocella with Vanguard Properties said the house is incomparable.

In 24 years of selling real estate in San Francisco and the Bay Area I have never seen a home like this. It is absolutely a one-of-a-kind work of art! she said.
