Huge congrats to my buyer on this incredible Glenoaks Canyon Spanish home! What a score – we looked for months, seeing every home in a 15 mile radius but none checked all the boxes like this one.
This buyer wanted a character home with enough space to host guests, but not so much space as to be high-maintenance to furnish and maintain. He wanted a great pocket with tree-lined streets and a somewhat central location, something with hardwood floors throughout, and most importantly (and surprisingly most difficult to find) a home with a large private grassy backyard for his 2 very rambunctious dogs to play in. You’d be surprised how many homes in the $900,000 price-range have very little yard space, an abundance of concrete (not good for doggy hips), no fences, or no privacy. This yard issue was proving to be more challenging than we thought!
I reached out to some other local agents and found out that this lovely character home – which seemed like it could be perfect on paper – was hitting the market in 2 weeks. I was able to arrange a showing before it went on the market and my buyer immediately fell in love. We wrote an offer within the next hour, opening escrow the next day and closing in less than a month. Win-win for everyone involved – and just look at that yard!
I popped in last weekend to check in and see how things were going and we sat in his new magical backyard, listening to birds chirp and watching the pups play on the beautiful green turf he has since had installed. I’ll have to go back and grab a photo to post in this blog as the yard is somehow even prettier now than it was before & definitely worth showing off.
