Congratulations to first time homeowners, Viv and Steve!
~ Welcome, welcome, welcome to beautiful San Jose, California! ~
I admired their fortitude during multiple offers in a fierce competitive market and wanting to own a single family home (vs. condo/townhouse). They knew that a single family home would appreciate more, they had to jump into the real estate market, and after discussing their desire to put in ‘sweaty equity’ by doing their own remodeling and cosmetic fixes rather than buying a home that was ‘turn-key’ they had to make difficult decisions that was within their budget. They ultimately found a home with unique character, attractive curb appeal, and with a detached garage which could be used as a workshop or possibly an ADU (granny unit) for passive income. The larger lot is big enough to build an addition…their options are there for future use.
Congratulations again to Viv and Steve on making an offer to a home that will forever be remembered as the Valentine’s Day, gift of love, a cozy home!
