My last post was about a little 3/2 bungalow in Ortega that had fallen into foreclosure. It was an incredible opportunity. Did you notice the word was? It’s already under contract! Stick with me and you’ll be the first to know about amazing opportunities in the market and you can be the one to benefit from the great deals that I’m out there looking for every day!
I took a customer to the house who decided against it because of the very large oak tree out front. Another neighborhood agent who actually had the house under contract a few years ago for $275K told me that the house is uninsurable because of the tree and the cost to remove it would be $10K. That’s expensive to be sure but the house was priced at $149K and if you add in the cost of removing the tree, the price would only be $159K (still a good deal).
I’ll be interested to see what the final sales price is and if the bank negotiated anything off the final list price. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know!
