Disclosing Up Front


The real estate industry is famous for pushing only the positives – and poo-pooing the negatives.  Under frenzy conditions, buyers get caught up in the hustle, but these days they are paying close attention – and being more demanding about what they get for their money.

Most want a turn-key home, with little or no work required, and most will pass on a house like Bluff in spite of the attractive price.  But for those who don’t mind doing some work, the disclosing of the issues up front is appreciated.  They feel more comfortable making an offer, and they are more likely to stick once the home inspection confirms what they already know, instead of being full of surprises.

3553 Bluff Ct., Carlsbad $749,000


Premium location on huge 8,438sf pie-shaped lot at end of culdesac with panoramic ocean views to Catalina Island! Great floor plan with downstairs bedroom and full bath, stainless appliances in kitchen, new carpet, high ceilings with plenty of light, and pool/spa! Only $62/mo for mello-roos.  Property needs TLC but very manageable – minor maintenance issues.  The house next door sold for $875,000 four months ago and is 199sf bigger with no pool. Hoping for immediate sale – open this weekend 12-3pm!

This is the house that we were going to use the value-range pricing, but instead did a minor spruce-up and it’s still a deal!

P.S. The Tierrasanta listing sold for full price today!

P.S.S. This is the 6,000th blog post!
