Palo Alto’s Trifecta – Leland Manor, Garland, and Embarcadero Oaks

Written by Dave Roberson on . Posted in For Tenants, Landlords, Palo Alto, Property Management, Silicon Valley Real Estate Investing

AA Leland Manor 2If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful Palo Alto neighborhood look no further than Leland Manor, Garland, and Embarcadero Oaks.  Located in the middle of Palo Alto, there exists these three small neighborhoods, all connected and which extend north from Oregon Expressway, to Middlefield Road, Embarcadero Road, and Louis Road.

These three neighborhoods were annexed into Palo Alto proper in the 1930s.  Each quaint neighborhood has its own unique and pleasureful personality.  Most of the homes in these neighborhoods were built in the 1930s to 1960s and many have been upgraded and improved with time.  Many of the homes in these three mini-neighborhoods were built as three and four bedroom ranch-style homes, sprinkled with the occasional custom Eichler. The central location for Leland Manor, Garland, and Embarcadero Oaks allows for ease of access to US 101, local shopping, great Palo Alto schools, Stanford University, and community amenities.

Legal Tax Deductions For Rental Properties

AA Expenses ReceiptsCalcAre you a rental property owner? If so, it’s great isn’t it?  You receive income from the rents, also known as other people’s money (OPM), and you realize capital appreciation from the equity gains in the value of the property – a rising tide raises all boats.  In fact using OPM is a great strategy for paying for your child’s college education, and providing a passive income stream for yourself in your retirement.  The key is buying and holding onto an investment property as soon as possible and taking full advantage of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) allowable deductions and expenses.  Becoming educated about this investment strategy is easy, fun, and should be taught to your children.

Midtown Palo Alto Is Far From Middle-of-the-Road

Written by Dave Roberson on . Posted in Palo Alto, Property Management, Silicon Valley Real Estate Investing

Midtown_cowper_st_3457Developed after World War II “Midtown” Palo Alto contains all of the essential elements necessary to be a classic desirable family neighborhood.  Midtown is unambiguously located right smack in the middle of Palo Alto.  At inception Midtown was supposed to be a prototypical track neighborhood designed to accommodate California’s state-wide post-War development boom that defined the start of suburban sprawl.  Originally considered South Palo Alto, Midtown grew so big, so fast that the two separate neighborhoods – Midtown and South Palo Alto – were destined to be separated out of necessity.   Today Midtown is a distinct, charming stand-alone neighborhood which epitomizes Palo Alto neighborhood living.

Crescent Park Palo Alto Displays Classic Elegance, Prestige and Charm

Written by Dave Roberson on . Posted in Palo Alto

CP PA 1One of Palo Alto’s most sought-after neighborhoods is Crescent Park – in fact it is the Crown Jewel of Palo Alto.  This neighborhood is home to many amazingly beautiful mansions which define classic beauty, elegance, prestige and old wealth along the San Francisco Peninsula.  Pre-World War II homes divide up three distinct sections of Crescent Park’s Magnolia-lined streets; East of Middlefield Road, Prime Crescent Park, and Crescent Park Addition.  This neighborhood has many different architectural styles all of which are on display in each section of Crescent Park.  Just east of downtown are bungalows which began sprouting up in the early 1900s through the 1920s.  Many of these bungalows show architectural details and other craftsmen laid surprises not found in modern residential construction.  Tudors, Spanish Colonials, Spanish Revivals, and Monterey Colonials can be found throughout all sections of Crescent Park.  To appreciate all of the architecture one must just venture street-by-street, block-by-block.
