I recently closed a sale at 45 Arlene Ln. Two wonderful families offered on the home – one needed to sell their home, and one wanted to close in 21 days. My client chose the family whose house was already in contract. Parkmead is such a wonderful neighborhood, with great schools, ideal for families; and this house boasted a .49 acre flat lot with a pool and 3,000+ sq. ft. The neighborhood has a 4th of July Parade, Chili/Mac & Cheese Cook-Off, a very festive Halloween with over 300 Trick-or-Treaters, plus a summer BBQ at Dewing Park, our local swim club.
The new owners have two kids, know people in the neighborhood, and are super excited to be living there! The seller I was representing moved to Santa Barbara to be closer to her mother and her son.
My seller struggled a bit with who to choose. After 20-some years in your home, the desire to have one more Thanksgiving, was more appealing than rushing out. After a conversation with her son, practicality prevailed and it went smoothly thereon. This home was listed at $1,500,000 and sold for $1,465,000.
