Guess what…

I just sold two condos!

No surprise. Both homes sold in the first 4 hours. When you fix up homes to look like these and market them the way we do, there are people begging to buy it.

For the two-bedroom (photo above), I brought some purchase contracts, interviewed various buyers and wrote an offer up in the guest bedroom while hundreds of people were parading through the home. It sold for over $50K over asking price. We are due to close next week.

The one-bedroom (photo below) also sold well over asking and has already closed escrow. Very exciting. So…who do you know who could benefit by my over-the-top home-selling services? Just give me a call and give me their names.

And BTW, I desperately need a two-bedroom lower-level condo for a couple in Oceanside. Do you know anyone who might want to sell theirs?

Thanks so much.

Sold – New Record High Sales Price for Lake Forest Shores

LakeShoresExteriorThank you to the visitors who attended my Sailwind Way Grand Opening Open House on Saturday.  I am excited to let you know the final score!

The buyer wanted to buy the home for full price the moment it came on the MLS.  He was told he had to wait until the weekend Grand Opening to view it.  It was standing room only when he entered the home.  After seeing the ‘competition’ he wrote an offer for $25,000 over asking.  This set a new record high in Lake Forest Shores and completely covered the seller’s marketing fee and then some!

If you are a have been to one of my Grand Opening Open Houses, I am sure you observed the over-the-top measures that my team and I took to serve our sellers and put more money in their pockets.  We do the same hard work to help locate and negotiate the best situation for our buyers as well.  If you don’t have a signed contract with an agent, we would be delighted to help you find your dream home in record time.

Do you know anyone who might be looking to sell?
I have a young couple named Jonathan and Kelly who have asked me to find them a 2-bedroom condo in Lake Forest.  I am not new to this.  In fact, I teach agents who work in other cities how to sell homes using this same award-winning method that took me 15 years of testing to develop.  LakeShoresKitchenIt is all about helping sellers do the small things that make a big difference so that crowds converge on their home within a 4-hour period creating a feeding frenzy and a quick sale.  My past sellers love the fact that they don’t have to deal with buyers coming in and out of their home for months and that their home sells for top dollar in record time.

I have one opening to help a seller in September and one in October.  If you are a buyer, I have two openings available at this time. I look forward to hearing from you.

Lake Forest Promotes Literacy with a “Little Free Library”

Free Little LibraryThe City’s first Little Free Library’s “Take a Book, Return a Book” program was made possible through the efforts of three local Girl Scouts, Jenna Brown, Astha Parmar, and Kaitlyn Schisler, of Cadette Troop 1859, Foothill Ranch. Located directly behind the Recreation Center at the Sports Park, the blue dollhouse structure holds a variety of books for your reading pleasure. If you are looking for something to read, stop by and pick up a book. And don’t forget to bring something back next time to help keep the Library fully stocked.

Lake Forest Condo with Sun & Sail Club – Open Saturday from 12-4pm

front

Grand Opening Open House this Saturday July 23rd – Noon – 4pm

ACROSS FROM THE LAKE!  Wonderful townhome… with 2-bedrooms, 2- bathrooms, 1-car epoxied DIRECT ACCESS garage w/ lots of storage …is the best of both worlds – positioned between the lake and the woods.

KitchenGranite kitchen has shaker-style cabinets, stainless steel sink with pull-out faucet and Bosch dishwasher.  Expansive master bedroom has room for home office or large retreat. Fenced patio-yard has direct access to garage. Only ¼ of the units here have this feature.

Steps from walking trails that meander through fragrant eucalyptus trees up through Serrano Creek Park & its recreational area & horse stables. Your family & pets will love what nature offers you surrounding this home.

Across the street is the fabulous Sun & Sail Club with its lovely lake and amenities. Enjoy 4 pools, spa, his/hers saunas, tennis, volleyball, state of the art fitness center, youth center, snack bar, fishing, Cheers-style bar (for gathering with your friends to watch ‘the game’), a monthly calendar of events & more. You can even launch your own kayak for a sunset cruise.

Highly acclaimed Rancho Canada Elementary. is just up the street. A short stroll to shopping & eateries. Hardship sale so priced $55,000-$70,000 less than last sale to blow out this weekend.

livingroomI know you are used to me presenting upgraded, turnkey properties. This one is different.  The home is in ‘working condition’, but it requires some upgrades. The seller is in hurry to sell and move out of state. She has already packed up most of her home and put her belongings in the garage. She just needs a buyer who would like a deal!

This Saturday, July 23rd, please join me at this cosmetic fixer on 24564 Copper Cliff in Lake Forest. The home needs $10-20K in upgrades and it will look pretty much like the one I just sold across the street for $420,000. You can probably pick up this home for about $365K or so.  If you aren’t in the market, why don’t you pass this on to someone who would love a ‘ticket’ into resort-style living at the Sun and Sail Club?  Hope to see you there.
