More Clearview

Our listing on Clearview is a photographer’s dream with such a wide and unobstructed expanse – white-water surf, whales and dolphins, Navy maneuvers, and the eventual tearing down of the smokestack (shortly).

I won’t do it justice, but I’ll post a few shots as we go.

It’s one of the few places where the ocean view dwarfs the plant:

This photo below is about half of the ocean view you see in person, but without the zoom.  The ocean view looks bigger in person:

Wide lot = max view & privacy

  1. Jim are sellers required to report things like airbnb next door and/or May Grey or June gloom….funny yes…but would really like to know, Thanks

  2. Jim are sellers required to report things….

    Yes, and we have forms!

    We had a nice review today with two attorneys who wanted to make sure their forms were perfect.

    The forms ask the sellers if they are ‘aware of any significant defects/malfunctions’, then ask a few questions to prod your memory, and then several categories of specific topics are covered.

    But how much do the sellers know? Houses are notorious for being under-maintained, and if sellers aren’t paying attention or don’t live there, the forms are going to be brief.

    What happens when buyers find something after closing? You have to prove that the sellers knew, and deliberately did not disclose, which is a tough case.

    But you can always threaten to sue, and then the insurance companies get involved and everyone spends money on lawyers and end up settling for a minimal amount, regardless of the facts.

  3. “But you can always threaten to sue, and then the insurance companies get involved and everyone spends money on lawyers and end up settling for a minimal amount, regardless of the facts.”
    There is a winner there!
    Do you have a coyote problem and is it disclosed?

  4. Coyotes are a good example of what might bug a buyer but the seller never thinks of.

    Others: Airplanes flying over – not just a smaller airport like Carlsbad’s Palomar Airport, but how about the jumbo jets that fly over at 5,000 to 10,000 feet? You can hear them, and in spots like La Jolla where you are getting blasted by Miramar too, it could be a problem for unknowing buyers but shrugged off by long-time homeowners who are selling.

    How about the train whistle at 2am? You can hear it 3-7 miles inland!

    Smokers? Many people are forced to go outside to smoke, and you can smell it from 1-2 houses away. But what if the seller never goes outside?

  5. When the weather is poor, you know, those six or seven days per year, NAS Mugu puts a few planes bound for Ridgecrest over the Dawghaus. Likewise the long Las Posas Valley funnels the wail of the the Amtrak from miles inland. There is just no escaping the horror.

    Full disclosure. We have yet in our extensive travels ever found quieter quarters than the Dawghaus. I must say north coast San Diego comes close.

  6. Howloud.com gives this home a score of 79 on their scale. Not too bad: http://howloud.com/
