Good News, Bad News In San Juan Baustista

This VIDEO Tour of 766 Avenida Del Piero in San Juan Bautista turned out really well. It is a gorgeous executive home which sits on a professionally_DSC2350-HDR landscaped , half acre and is bordered by a 510 acre Agricultural Land Trust. It offers 3 good size bedrooms and a nice office, 2.5 bathrooms and a finished, 3 car garage and 3,415 sq. ft. of living space. Travertine tile and plush carpet, 10′ & 12′ ceilings, recessed lighting and remarkable views out every window makes this home very desirable. It is an entertainer’s dream.

The good news is that it was available for you to buy.

The bad news: we received multiple offers, it sold over the asking price and sold in just a couple of days. People from many different areas were calling about the home. One gentlemen was going to drive down from Oregon (a 6 hr. drive) to buy it. He had seen the VIDEO Tour and wanted the home. However, to each all I had to offer was a different listing I am working on, in that same community, which should be on the market in a couple of weeks.

This has become my good news, bad news experience: with a nicely staged home and great marketing materials my listings sell quickly and typically for more than the owners asked. I’m becoming more comfortable with: “Sorry, it went quickly, however, I’m will have another listing in that same subdivision. Would you like me to send you it’s information?

Great Home in San Juan Bautista!

If you want to be close to all of the important places but live “far” from it all – this home is calling you!  Watch this VIDEO Tour of it here.DSCN2503

352 Orchard Hill Road, in the rolling foothills of historic San Juan Bautista, is one of just 12 ranchetts on this lane.  It is less than 5 minutes from Hwy 101 and 5 minutes from San Juan Bautista’s boutique shops and restaurants, historical sites, elementary and high school. From here it is only 15 minutes to Gilroy’s Premium Outlet Center and, CalTrain – for an easy commute.  The beaches and Monterey are just 30 minutes in the other direction.

Out each window of this single story, 2,500 sq. ft. home with 3 bedrooms 2 baths and 2 – 1/2 baths, with separate dining, family and living rooms, are spectacular views!  Even the extra wide, 3 car garage has plenty of windows to capture the views and flood it with natural light.

When you step inside 352 Orchard Hill Rd. you are standing on colorful, wood finish tile, and looking up at a cathedral ceiling, beautiful chandelier and crown molding. Leaving the foyer the remarkable kitchen becomes the favorite spot. Custom cabinetry has under cabinet lighting which shins down on beautiful slab granite counter tops; the commercial, stainless steel 6 burner gas stove and double ovens are one of the two center pieces.  The other is the copper apron sink and faucets.

Both the family and living rooms have their own raised fireplace.  While both have coved ceilings the living room has craftsman molding around the highest reach of its ceiling.

The guest bathroom has a sky light and the master suite bathroom has a jetted, sunken tub and, again remarkable views.  The master suite has a tastefully finished brick backdrop to its own “fireplace”.  A short stroll from the master suite takes you the sunken, hot tub and its octagon building.

Rather than go on, why not text, email or call me for your own tour of this remarkable place.

Housing Values At The Bottom Yet?

Remember when we were on a road trip with the kids in the car?  What was the question they always got around to?  “Are we there yet?”

Nearly every day people ask me the same question relative to home values: “Are housing values at the bottom yet?”  The answer varies depending the area you are asking about.

In this article Forbes provides mixed answers:  homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area may “be there”.  Other places in CA and around the country, however, may have a ways to go yet before their house-value-slide ends.

San Jose was specifically listed as one of the few metro area where values seem to have leveled.  This continues to be good news for Morgan Hill, Gilroy and Hollister home values.  With the majority of South County residents commuting up into the Bay Area, home values in these three cities will continue to follow San Jose’s lead.

So, Johnny, we’re there –  but we won’t be returning to increased values for some time to come.

VIDEO Tour, Beautiful San Juan Bautista Home

Location, location, location.  Here is a ‘turnkey’ home nestled on 5, oak tree studded, acres in the San Juan Bautista foothills.

This bright and sunny home is only 40 min. from San Jose, 13 miles from Gilroy’s Outlets and CalTrains; 4 miles from San Juan’s village and schools, 20 min. to the beach and a little further to Monterey.

As you watch the VIDEO Tour (above) of this great home look for all of the natural light, large oak trees, and the home’s quality. 860 Merrill Rd is located at the end of the lane, about a mile up from Hwy 101.
