How to buy when you have to first sell? // METIS Minute

Often one’s downpayment is wrapped up in the equity of their primary home. When one out grows their existing home and needs to grow into a larger, and more expensive home, here are some strategies that allow for one to successfully accomplish this.

If you are a buyer in such a situation, contact us today and we can outline a few scenarios just for you.

The Willow Glen Lifestyle

It takes more than four walls and a roof to make a home. This newly built Spanish Revival in Willow Glen was architected with life’s celebrations in mind. To sell this concept we worked with our media team to storyboard a typical day in this amazing home. We started out walking through Downtown Willow Glen and patronizing many of the local businesses, then headed back to the property to capture a casual afternoon lunch who showcasing this home’s amazing features.

What do you think? Did our media team succeed?

METIS Minute: February 5, 2019

We started a new feature this year. With recent market changes it is ever more so important to pre-market our listings and get them in front of more potential buyers than ever before. Part of this effort is the filming of our weekly activity and ensure the public is aware of what we are doing as a team. These videos are broadcasted on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. Our weekly reach is in the tens of thousands and these videos become better every week.

Sunset Magazine // 2018 Idea House

Every year Sunset Magazine collaborates with the most innovative home product companies, on-trend furniture builders, haute designers and one exceptional builder to build a concept house showcasing if money was no object, the sheer amount of customization, technology and design one can build into a designated space. This year’s project just so happened to be in Los Gatos and built by well renowned local builder Mark De Mattei of De Mattei Construction.

One of our core beliefs is that the right house will meet the right buyer, but it is up to that specific buyer to act when the opportunity presents itself. This was the case with our buyer, and we are ecstatic to announce that we are currently in escrow for this show stopper of a build. Before we hand over the keys, we wanted to show you this home before it officially leaves the market.

Thank you for watching!

SOLD! Zero Days on Market, $500,000 Above Median Sold Price

3918 El Coral Sold.jpg

As the hot summer market fades and we move into a slower autumn market our marketing strategies must change. In this market we rely much heavier on pre-marketing to ensure every possible buyer we can reach without going on the actual market is notified, then we bring the property to market to reach the remaining interested buyers.

During our pre-marketing for this incredible modern farmhouse one of the agents we reached out to had a very interested buyer who wrote and offer that neither our seller nor we could not accept. In fact, in advising that they not accept we would not be doing them just service. Being that our primary guiding principle is service first, we advised them to accept and as the market shifted the odds of another buyer meeting them at this price point was less than rare.

As the dust cleared, our sellers were thrilled with the sales price and able to move onto their next home. The new buyers, while paying what seems like an astronomical amount over asking will own the home of their dreams and in-time the appreciation will eclipse the initial investment. Also, in doing the math should they renovate their home to create their own modern farmhouse they would have spent well in excess of the premium of just moving to this property.

With this said, we can finally show you the interior of this amazing house. Have a watch as Dennis walks you through this exceptional Ken Sunzeri build:

The Haneys

Wallace sits down with our most recent home buyers, Genny and Mark Haney to chat about some of their purchase expectations, challenges, and eventual success. 

Every home buyer has an extensive wish list of wants, but being in such a seller's market, buyers often need to whittle down and compromise. Genny and Mark started out with an ambitious list and this was further compounded with their desire to stay within geographical and budgetary constraints. We looked at many properties with them over the span of a couple months, then found the property we're sitting in. Watch the video to learn what happened.
