733 Stratford Drive


I love my new Encinitas Highlands listing at 733 Stratford Drive, which is at the top of the hill and offers some of the best ocean views in EH!  This is another property that is ideally suited for the multi-generational buyers because there are bedrooms and full baths on the ground floor plus a detached 1br/1ba cottage out back.

This is my first real tour of a house with the new camera (and because I’m trying to move slower and smoother), so this is the extended full version of the whole property:

We had a bonafide madhouse today at the open house in Escondido.  We had at least 200 people attend!

The granny flat was an important ingredient for a handful of groups, but not snazzy enough to be the sole reason to purchase.  It was a nice extra – a sweetener more then a must-have. At the open house we had at least 5 groups who had ‘granny’ in tow, and one will likely make an offer.

Hey Jim…you’re in Escondido?

  1.  Blog Reader, Will Travel!  I’m here to help you!
  2.  I want Kayla to be well-versed in all areas, price points, and socio-economic classes – we want to help everyone!
  3.  This is the first of three listings this month that are tailor-made for the multi-generational buyers.  Let’s conduct a full exam of this product type!

Kayla recognized straight away that this is a property that would work for investors too.  The permitted granny flat will rent for $900 per month, and the house should fetch $2,200!

Join Kayla and I for open house from noon to 3pm on Sunday (4/3)!

An update on Davidson Communities, and their blistering hot run through Carlsbad were they sold out New Crest and are one away from closing out Arterro too.  But that’s not all – resales have already begun in both – a 3,110sf pending sale on New Crest will close for more than $1.2 million, and in Arterro there is a house that backs to RSF Rd. that listed for $1.35 million and went pending in 12 days!
