Another first-time homebuyer success story. Our client came to us wanting to find a new home south of Ventura Boulevard so that she could be close to her family and friends. With a budget of just around $2 million and searching for a single family home with at least three bedrooms, we knew it would be difficult to achieve our client’s goals, but possible. Our search led us to this beautiful 1960s craftsman home still owned by its original owner. The home offers ample living space with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and 2,264 square feet of living space. The large 9,000 square foot lot also offers unique useable yard space for a hillside home while also offering fantastic city views. Our offer strategy and rapport with the listing agent allowed our client to beat out multiple offers without participating in a bidding war, meaning our client secured the property at below-market and without waiving any contingencies. Not only that, but after thorough inspections we were able to negotiate a significant credit for our client, thereby not only eliminating her closing costs but also reducing her downpayment. Having closed on this fantastic deal and property, our client is now free to add her personalized touches on this classic craftsman home.
