Hot Bargain Property April 25th, 2007

Post Probate Property In Great Neighborhood Cheap!



General: Central San Diego, 3 bedroom 1.75 bath. Asking price between $425,000 and $450,000. I think an offer of $390,000 net would get it sold.



Why you should be interested: Quiet street in a good neighborhood. Good schools in the area, easy freeway access.



Selling Points: Basically, this is a nice entry level family home in good condition, with a usable back yard. No Association, no Mello-Roos, just you and your property.



Why I think it's a potential bargain: Everything around it is much more expensive, plus it's post probate and been on the market for a year.



Obvious caveats: Some of it is a little dated.



Why it hasn't sold already: It's not modern or beautiful. But it does look solid, and seems to be in good condition.



If you keep it ten years and it averages only 5% annual average appreciation per year: Based upon a purchase price of $390,000, the property would be worth approximately $630,000. If you held it those ten years before selling, you would net about $300,000 in your pocket (not including increased value from updates!), assuming zero down payment. As opposed to renting the $1700 per month most comparable currently available rental and investing the difference at 10% per year tax free, you would be approximately $130,000 ahead of the renter, after the expenses of selling.



Fact you should be aware of: Roof has only a shallow slope.



Obvious way to enhance value or appeal of property: Re-do the garage.



This property does appear to be eligible for a first time buyer Mortgage Credit Certificate provided your family income is not more than $82,800 or $96,600. Ask me for more details, on this or any other property.



I'm a buyer's Realtor®. I find places like this that can be gotten at bargain prices. I save you money while getting paid out of the listing agent's commission, not costing you a penny. Nor are these the only bargains I find. In order to protect everyone's best interests, I require a Non-Exclusive Buyer's Agent Agreement. This is a standard California Association of Realtors form that leaves you are free to work with other agents, but if I find the property you want, I'm the agent you'll use. That's fair, and there is no reason not to sign such an agreement unless you're an agent yourself.
