Positas Road, Winters, closed on Wednesday, April 21, 2010, two days ahead of time! Positas Road is located West of town, just west of where Pleasants Valley Rd meets Highway 128. It is a small private road with about 10 parcels and awesome views. I am sure the new owner will love it up there. The house was 1304 square feet with 3bedrooms and 2 baths and was built in 2001. It sold for $392,000. with a $3000. credit to the Buyer in lieu of any repairs. That is a very nice comparable sale for everyone.
Hope to see you all tomorrow at Youth Day.
A lot of REO (foreclosure) agents told me that we would see a “flood” of new listings come on the market the first part of this year. Well, we are almost done with the first quarter and April 30, 2010 is fast approaching and there arent’ any listings. Why is that date important? Well, in order to get the first time home buyer tax credit of $8000 you have to be in contract by April 30 and then close by June 30, 2010. If there aren’t any listings then people can’t buy and therefore, can’t get the tax credit. Since Bank of America and Wells Fargo Bank control/own the majority of the foreclosed homes you gotta wonder why they aren’t putting them on the market. Is there some conspiracy going on here? No listings, no sales, no tax credit, saves the government a lot of money? I wish I knew but food for thought for sure. So the next BIG question is, will the government extend the credit once again? I sure hope so.
I have a wonderful new listing out in the country. Positas Road is on the West side of town just past Pleasants Valley Road. It is up on a hill and has wonderful views of the foothills. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with a large two car garage. This home has lots possibilities. Call me today and make an appointment to see it before it is gone.
I have several nice rentals available for immediate move in. I have everything form a fully refurbished 2/1 duplex to a custom 4/2 home on a humongous lot. Prices start at $1000. Call the office at 530-795-4183 and schedule an appointment with Cheryl, my assistant, or myself.
There were two new SOLD comparables in Winters in January. The first one is 1030 Kennedy which was a 3/2 around 1250 square feet and it sold for $209,900, cash. The second house that sold was 114 Riverview Ct. That house was a large home on a large lot built in the mid 70’s . It had four bedrooms and a nice loft upstairs. The master was downstairs, always a plus. It sold for $303,000.
Well just in time for Christmas we had two new nice sales in Winters. The first house is at 313 Village Circle and sold for $300. on Friday, December 18. The second house was a short sale at 717 Main Street and also sold for $300k. It was the former model home and had some nice upgrades. I think both buyers will be very with their new homes in the new year! Happy New Year everyone.
Well, wouldn’t you know it?! Just when everyone gets really busy with their Christmas preparations the banks decide to release a bunch of new REO’s. Yes, there have been 4 new listings in Winters since the beginning of the month. The interesting thing is that they are all on the lower end of the price range. One just hit the market this weekend for around$124k. there are two more around $135 and one just under $150.. These are all something to look at and consider. Wonder what will appear around the first of the new year? Guess we will wait and see.
I got another call from someone who owns property in Winters who needs property management services. Yes, I do provide that service and I am the only realtor who provides this professional service.

Well, this listing has been out there a little over a week and 4 days of that was the Thanksgiving vacation! I got an offer on Monday and tonight it went pending. I am very happy for everyone. This is a great house with lots of potential for updating. Plus it is in a nice quite neighborhood.
I just listed 114 Riverview Ct. I love this floorplan. It is the 2 story model and there are several homes of this model in this neighborhood. When my son, Chad was in high school his friends lived in this model. Upstairs there is a large loft and 2 large bedrooms and a full bathroom. Plus there is a large storage area. As my owner says, behind this door is Christmas! Chad and his buds used to hang up there by the hour playing their music, video games and who knows what else and I am sure I don’t want to know. Downstairs is a large living room, family room and one more bedroom and the master bedroom. The lot is over 9000 sq ft so it is a definite must see! Give me or your favorite realtor a call for a showing.
