Weekend Events

Can you believe it's November already? It is time to get serious if you are hoping to be in a new home for the holidays or even by the end of the year. There is still time! It is also important to note that even the skeptics are saying that a price correction will not occur until 2008. That is only months away, so the window for catching the market at a low point is starting to close. That is good news for the sellers who are waiting for the upswing, but the buyers who wait too long will be left in the dust.

Interest rates this week for a 30 year fixed on a jumbo loan were 6.875%. They have been over seven for the last couple of months, so we are headed in the right direction!

Get out your map, a bottle of water and an energy bar, a clipboard and a pen, and go find a home! Take a break along the way and enjoy some of these activities.

If it is excitement you are looking for, AT&T Park is hosting Icer Air 2007; an extreme winter sports competition including skating, snowboarding, motocross, and live music. You can wind down by seeing these open houses in South Beach.

Far on the other end of the spectrum, if you want to keep it mellow and cuddle up with a good book, you have a couple of options. CELLspace in the Mission is having a book exchange on Saturday. Have a coffee, beer or wine, and enjoy the DJ's mellow tunes. This is a wonderful 10,000 square foot space and is worth visiting for one of their special events. They also have flea markets called the Mission Village Market every Sunday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Have a look at these open homes in the Mission while you are in the neighborhood.

The other option for you book lovers is the SF Jewish Bookfest at the JCC on Sunday from 12:00 to 6:30pm. This is free and open to the public. Stop by these open homes in the Lake District.

The Asian Art Museum is having their Fall Family Festival on Sunday November 4th. There will be activities for the whole family focusing on the textile traditions of Asia. Have a look at these open homes in the Van Ness/Civic Center District.

The are so many things going on, it's hard to include them all. If anyone out there wants to add to the list or have an event featured, just let us know!

The last one featured for today will be the launching of the 11th Internaltional Latino Film Festival. It goes from November 2 through the 18th. Tonight is opening night at the W San Francisco at 9:00pm. The opening film will be "El viaje de la Nonna", and after the film there will be food, drink, and dancing!

The most important event of the weekend is resetting your clocks! That's right, Daylight Savings Time officially ends on Sunday at 2:00am, so at that time you need to set your clocks back one hour. Have a great weekend!
