Day 15: Popcorn

Chennault Collage
Chennault Ave

I had the pleasure of showing this house to a sweet young lady and her mom yesterday.  The potential buyer is getting married in the spring and is shopping for a starter home for her fiancé and herself.  Ahh…to be young and in love!  It was also very touching to find out that her childhood home, recently sold by her parents in favor of a custom built home in the country, is less than a block away!  Can you imagine how comforting it must feel to potentially buy your first home in the very neighborhood where you grew up?

“Location Location Location! Beautiful home conveniently located in the award winning Clovis School District, this 3 bedroom and 2 bath features high vaulted ceilings, laminate flooring throughout, 2 car garage, fireplace, sparkling pool, and much much more. Don’t miss your chance to live in this lovely family home!”

The location of this house really is great.  At Sunnyside and Alluvial, it is right down the street from very convenient shopping and extremely close to freeway access.  A must for this buyer, who commutes to two SCCCD campuses for her teaching job.  The backyard pool is a really nice feature that seems to be rare for this price point. Finished hardwood floors (not laminate) and a red brick, wood burning fireplace both add a lot of charm to this cozy house.  In my opinion it would be a perfect starter house for a new family!

The one thing that both mom and daughter were concerned about was the popcorn ceilings.  I, myself, was a little taken aback at that.  I truly thought that went out of style back in the ’80’s, but this house was built in the early ’90’s, so I guess it was slow to lose favor with some builders.  We chatted about removal techniques a bit and they decided it would be a fun (?) DIY project if they ended up buying this home.  That’s ambition for you!

I’m looking forward to working with this new client to help her find a perfect newlywed home.  Follow along on our adventure in house hunting in future posts.

Cheers!
