“New”, Energy Efficient Home, Large Lot

As you watch the VIDEO Tour of 961 Verissimo Ct., Hollister, consider these valuable components: this home is 2 yrs. untitled-4New with the virtues
of a new home and the added upgrades of a resale home. Because of the 19 solar panels there’s little reluctance to crank up the dual zone heaters in the winder and A/C in the summer.

Inside, the owners upgraded to 9′ ceilings and 8′ doors. The plantation shutters add charm to the tall windows in every room. So “open and bright” is not just a cliche for this house.  They also spent a lot of money in the kitchen: ceaserstone quartz counter tops; 40″ cabinets and easy-close drawers; stainless steel appliances including a huge sink. The double vanities of both bathrooms feature slab granite counter tops and upgraded fixtures.  There is a large landing at the top of the stairs in addition to the 13′ x 14′ bonus room. An optional, 4th bedroom, could easily be added here. An upstairs laundry room is conveniently located to all of the bedrooms.

There is plenty of room for an RV and, or boat on the side of the home and still have room for a pool, family garden & orchard etc. The backyard measures nearly 100′ corner-to-corner.

With no homes in front of this house and virtually none behind it you can enjoy views of the foothills on both sides of the valley.

After watching the VIDEO Tour you should come see this great home in person. Just text, email or call me for your own, personal tour and I will arrange it for you.

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?

Pssst, I Know A Great Place, Coming Soon!

766 Avenida 003

It’s fun to know, before others, about something which is coming soon. This is just, such a surprise: it’s a drop-dead-gorgeous executive home tucked away in the foothills of San Juan Bautista.

Golf, nearby. Tennis, down the lane. Scenic trails & wildlife….. And the commute…so easy!

Watch for the VIDEO Tour of it.  I’ll be launching it about 2 weeks.

You don’t want to miss this jewel!
