December 2020 was a BIG month for Daniel and Jessica, who just sold their first home and got into contract on their second home! We were honored to help them make this transition possible.
Dan and Jessica are expecting their first baby in the spring. When they received our announcement about our Seller Webinar in September, they thought they'd check it out to see what we had to say. Preparing a home for sale, selling a home, and transitioning into a new home during a global pandemic didn't exactly seem like the most appealing idea at the time. However, they left our webinar feeling inspired, and we set up a walkthrough the following week.
We gave Dan and Jess a punch list of property prep recommendations and they got right to work. They painted, rebuilt a deck (!), moved the chickens out, and redid the landscaping. They received an offer they were happy with two weeks after going live on the market.
Once we were about one week away from closing, we started touring so they could find a home of their own. If you're a Bay Area homebuyer out there, you know how tough this market is. Luckily, Dan and Jess were on top of their search and requested a tour of a Compass "Coming Soon" property in San Leandro. The seller was living in the home and eager to get into contract in order to avoid a steady stream of people through her house. We were the second party to view the property and Dan and Jess made an offer the next day! It came VERY close, but they got the offer accepted on a sweet fixer in San Leandro
They closed escrow on their first home and got right to work on prioritizing upgrades before getting keys to their new home. They have their work cut out for them a couple busy months ahead before the baby comes, but it will be SO worth it once they're all settled into their new home.
