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?

Kitchen Trends Add Value

The best return on your home improvement dollars is in the kitchen.  This article offers 10 suggestions for kitchen updates in 2017.

While the mailbox, garage and front door have the highest return for their costs, the kitchen is the #1 investment room inside the house. While you may not get 1:1 return you will get more of your money back in the form of a higher sales price than a home with a dated kitchen – you will get more bang for your buck than say, money spent on a bedroom.

Besides, don’t we spend a great deal of time in the kitchen? Especially when family and friends are over. Holidays, special events etc., often evolve around the kitchen.
