Built in 1940, this darling English Country cottage had been enjoyed and cherished by the same family for over 57 years.  Located on a peaceful street in San Marino, featuring offering a 9792 sf flat lot with private backyard,  this home was the “Talk of the Town”.

With over 40 showings in just the first two days on market, multiple offers were inevitable. The proof is in the pudding: this home garnered 31 offers and sold for $430K over asking, closing at $ 1,780,000. And that’s for a home that needs a lot of updating.

How to navigate this unprecedented market? As a seller, set a price to capture people’s attention. But don’t be fooled by just any showings-only those from qualified and motivated buyers really matter. Don’t be afraid to limit showings to buyers who are fully approved and can show proof of funds. As a buyer, it’s critical that you do your “homework” ahead of time and be realistic. Come prepared to make the strongest offer possible in order to compete.  It’s a wild ride but YOU can be successful.
