Recently, I represented the buyer on 9 Hansen Ct. in Moraga. My clients were very motivated, just moving back to the Bay Area from Texas. They were also living in a parents’ 2-bed home with four additional people and a daughter needing to be registered for high school. So all this put the house-hunting process on high alert.
As an agent, you often learn about critical information, or those that inform the decision-making process, as you go. In this case, it was how important being close to the high school would be, as the daughter would have to get there in the mornings and she doesn’t drive yet.
We put one offer in on a duet by Rudgear Park, but got beat out on a home with multiple offers. They had been eyeing Hansen, which had just reduced the price, so we negotiated down a bit more and then started doing inspections. The house had been beautifully updated after being a rental for 20 years, but we found the sprinklers had been leaking and there was water under the house. After the sellers addressed the sprinkler issue we got a credit for a few other repairs and closed the day after school started.
Luckily, this home is a block from Campolindo and the daughter was able to register, but proof of closing was required within the month. Now they are just waiting for their furniture to be delivered.
Buying or selling can be stressful at times. It is my job to consistently communicate the process and help mitigate some of the stress. Here are reviews on how I do just that. If you are thinking about buying or selling a home, let’s chat!
