Day 75: A home for the holidays

I had the good fortune to show a few houses to an awesome couple. They need to buy right away because their current home is in escrow and will close before the end of the year. Yikes! Talk about a crazy time to risk being displaced! I showed them a few homes, including the one you’ll see below. But before I go into that, I wanted to take a minute to highlight a few reasons why now…holiday season…is actually a GREAT time to list your house for sale!

Day 74: Eyes wide open

Today’s house is a three bedroom, two bathroom, 1808 sq ft home located in NE Fresno near Alluvial & Millbrook. It is FHA ready and is a remodel-flip by an agent. My first impression of the place was that it’s a pretty decent remodel. The kitchen has new granite counters and wood laminate flooring and there is new carpet throughout. These are things that many buyers get woo’d by because they make the house look pretty and modern. So, kuddos to this flipper on getting that right!

Day 73: Houston, we have a winner!

Today’s tour is a house located near Cedar & Nees. It’s an adorable Mansionette in a lovely and quiet neighborhood where pride of ownership is very much alive and thriving! This home has only had ONE owner since it was built in 1987. At just under 2600 sq ft, this single story home feels amazingly spacious.

Day 41, 42, 43,…70! (part 2)

So, here’s a thing…I have three houses in escrow right now. Whaaaaat?!

Yeah, baby! It’s going to be a crazy few weeks getting everything to close, but I’m totally up to the challenge and man will it be worth it! If all goes well, I will be able to breathe and enjoy the holidays before the insanity of the new year hits.

Day 41, 42, 43,…70! (part 1)

The downside to being nose to the grindstone IN the business is that it’s difficult to remain focused working ON the business. Getting back to basics means I will renew my commitment to posting daily. There won’t necessarily be witty content to accompany each house, but I think we will all survive 😉 To get back on track, I’m going to summarize the last 30 (!) houses I’ve seen here. It’ll be fast and furious, so try to keep up!

Day 40: I’ll Take the Master

It turns out that this family planned to combine three generations under the same roof, which is why they needed to upgrade their home. When all is said and done, living in the home will be three adults and three children, comprised of a mother, her son and his two children, and her daughter with her baby girl. They wanted a house that would not only have enough bedrooms to accommodate all three generations but also enough separation in living areas to allow for some privacy within each family unit.
