Well, I’m excited! In December, I sold my cute little South Redondo 2 bedroom townhome listing at 120 S Lucia to some of my own clients, who rightly saw it as the wonderful diamond in the rough it was. With a great layout, spacious living room with three sets of French doors leading to a large private back yard, a cool fireplace, and a nice large kitchen, this was a steal at $475,000. I was able to negotiate this short sale steal with both the first and second lien holder without too much trouble, using the skills I have as a CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert).
So I was really excited today when my client, a sound operator who works in television production, said we might be able to get the house on one of these HGTV shows where they help fix the place up. I’m not sure we’ll pass the screening — but it is really cool to even be considered for such a thing, I think! This will help my clients to get some help with all the improvements, too… and maybe help me to stay on my New Year’s diet!
