After searching for several months in the Mission Viejo market, where the majority of single family homes do not stay on the market for more than two weeks and sell for above list price, this first-time home-buying couple is another excellent example of how patience can pay off. We identified a property on Estanciero Drive that had been on the market longer than usual, and as a result were able to secure the property for $15,000.00 below list price. The beautiful, almost 2,000 square foot home is completely remodeled and move-in ready, with new floors, counter-tops, bathroom fixtures, and stainless steal appliances, and is complete with a spacious yard, built-in barbecue, pool, and spa. The inspection process revealed some items that needed repair, allowing our clients to negotiate a further $1,500 credit at closing. In the end, escrow closed in just 25 days, allowing our clients to obtain the keys to the home early to begin their move-in process. Estanciero drive’s newest residents are extremely excited about their new home, and we are sure the property will prove to be an excellent first home for our clients and a great place for them to start their family.
