For this home I just sold in San Jose for $850,000, I was the agent for the sellers. This is my 3rd time working with these clients! When listing this home, the market was definitely starting to slow down and I could see and feel the change with all of my listings and open house activity, as well as my clients that are buyers looking for homes. So, the sellers seem to have sold at a time when the market was still decent in this area, but turning, and before it really slowed down in this general area.
Also, for this particular home, the main entrance door is on the side, rather than in front, so it’s not the typical front door entry, and it’s not as popular as the more traditional type of home plans. And, this particular pocket of the overall area is a bit more crowded than much of Blossom Valley that have wider streets and such, it’s a little different than the general norm for the area, so that was also a selling factor as well. So, with a turning market and buyers getting more particular about what they buy and where, it just wasn’t that sure thing scenario for getting a lot of activity. But, on the flip side it is a very cute home and floor plan, a great yard, and the price is right, so, things still went well.
We did get a full priced offer after the first open house weekend. And, the buyer closed in less than 30 days and bought in ‘as is’ condition. The transaction itself was very smooth and seamless, so that was great!
