Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22

Yesterday was the 22nd Day of Sheltering in Place here in Santa Cruz. Ellia has been kicking butt at face mask making. So much so that we had to run back to Santa Cruz Vac and Sew to get more supplies. Then, Ellia made her first mask sale to our friends, the Zenczaks! So now we are trying to get her set up on a system, so that she can make a profit. So if you want a face mask made by Ellia, reach out to me and I’ll be sure to put in a request with her!

I hope you are doing well, staying safe and sane. I’ve been staying both sort of sometimes and other times not so much.

But I just wanted to keep you guys informed about what’s going on and share with you some articles that I found very interesting. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about is it a good time to buy? Is it a good time to sell real estate right now? Amidst the the pandemic, and truth be told, the right time is when it’s right for you and nothing or nobody should be able to dictate that. When it is time to buy, you’ll know it, when it’s time to sell, you’ll know it.

That said, we as an industry are up and running, we are prepared to serve our clients’ needs. We have things like drive-thru title and escrow, which I found very interesting and I’ve included that article here. Santa Cruz County real estate is considered an essential, so we are allowed to show homes that are vacant as long as we follow CDC guidelines and as long as the buyer is pre-approved and also has already reviewed the photos, the virtual video tour, and is really wanting to make an offer but wants to see the home, in person, first.

With that being said, if you are currently looking to Buy a Santa Cruz Home, I would love to assist you in your Santa Cruz Home Search. There is not the usual amount of inventory as we normally see at this time, but mortgage rates are historically low. Now may be a great time to buy, as long as you’re willing to be patient for your dream home to come onto the market.

If you are currently thinking about Selling Your Santa Cruz Home, now may be a great time to put your home on the market. With inventory being low, the demand increases. Meaning, that some homes are seeing multiple offers and bid wars. I’d love to schedule a complimentary and confidential consultation with you to see how Fox Realty Group INC. can creatively market your home!

I think every person has a specific specialized need, so if you wanna discuss your situation with me personally, I would love to hear from you. Otherwise, I hope you find these articles interesting and I look forward to talking to you guys soon.

If you are within the at-risk population, and are in need of essentials during this time, or a face mask, please feel free to reach out to me. I would be happy to bring food and supplies to your doorstep. If you are a Santa Cruz business owner, please let me know how the community can support you during this time. I’d love to come by, film, and promote you on social media.

Ellia is kickin’ butt at mask making, but she ran out of thread and we need to go pick up some new material, so we’re heading down to Santa Cruz Vac and Sew. If you need a mask, how do they reach you? If you need a mask, let me know and I’ll pass it along. Okay, I’m over here at Santa Cruz Vac and Sew, what’s your name? I’m Claire. Claire, and what was your name? Nick. Nick. And these two are the owners and look at their fabulously stunning masks. And they had a super successful turnout with what is it? Hearts That Care? Yes. Who came in and borrowed all of your sewing machines to make masks for our service providers. And I just spent money here so that my daughter can make masks too! Thank you! Thank you, thanks, you guys. Bye-bye! Hey Ellia, I got you your stuff in there. Guess how much it was. $73. Dang. How much do you think we should be charging for our masks? What are you teaching me? How to just thread the bobbin! Mm, all right. So, you wind up your bobbin on here in the eye, yeah, like that, pull that out and then the eye is, and then it’ll stop once it’s all done. Make sure to put that back in so that it goes back onto here. And then you take your bobbin and put it in your bobbin holder. You put it through this little, oh, come here! Through this little thing. What is that little thing? Oh, it’s called, I don’t know what it’s called. And then you’ve already threaded your needle hopefully. And you take your thread and you take your hand wheel and take it and then make it go one full stitch so that this is back up. You go like that, and that’s one full stitch, and then there should be a loop right here. And then I like tease with my seam ripper because it’s easy, as I do pull the loop up and there it is. That’s really good. Excellent job. So, is it time? Yes, it’s time! We’re on our way to go deliver these fabulous masks to our friends, the Zenczak, we have four of ’em for their family of four. Ellia made ’em and I can’t wait, I’m super excited. Hi Jodi! Hi Hazie. Hi, hi Elia! Hi! Thank you so much! Hi Oscar! Oh my God, these are great! They’re comfortable, huh? They’re really comfy! Oh, hi Hazie! Yay, where’s Andy? Thank you. He’s looking at his phone, he’s looking at Ancestry.com. Hi, so– Hi. Ellia just made her first sale to the Zenczaks. She sold four masks for $20 total. And now we are doing our profit and loss statement. So, so far, how much have we spent on the materials? $75. Okay, so put that in the expense category. And then on the next page, do sales. S-A-L-E-S, sales. I know how to spell! I just want you to turn off the camera now. Ellia just made her first sale. Oh, that’s rad. Good, we should find out how long it takes to make one mask, what the materials are on the mask, so that at least she can break even. Yeah, agreed. I slung about four masks to some old ladies today for $20 apiece. They were all ready to pay. Who? Some walker-bys today. Well, why didn’t you sell ’em? They saw my mask and said, man, that’s fashionable.Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22, Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22, Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22, Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22, Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22, Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22, Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 22
