We have done it again! We started out with a sweet couple from the city who were interested in purchasing a home on the Russian River, and after meeting with them to discuss what they wanted their home to be like, we decided to take a tour of some of the houses that were on the market. It didn't take long for them to set their sights on an adorable three bedroom, three bathroom home in Cazadero. The home is set right on Austin Creek with a peaceful view and quiet surroundings. Right away they put an offer on the home. The home was listed at $339,000 but my clients decided to offer more for the home because they loved it, and in this competitive market, they didn't want to risk losing it.
We entered into a contract on November 3rd, 2014 and began the inspection and disclosure process. One of the inspections turned up some repairs that were needed for the septic system to function properly and, after some negotiations with the seller and their agent, the work began to fix the septic system. Situations like this are very common in rural properties, which is why it is extremely important that you take the time to make sure you have had all of the inspections that you deem necessary, in order to know that everything is in good working order before you release contingencies.
The buyers remained patient throughout this process and, as soon as the work was complete, released contingencies and signed the closing documents with First American Title. The house sold on January 27th, 2015 for $385,000 and after almost three months in escrow, these happy new homeowners were thrilled to receive the keys to their new home!
Millar and Company is grateful that we were able to help these happy homeowners navigate through this transaction with ease, and resolve any issue that arose with as little stress to the client as possible. To our clients, we wish you the best of luck as you embark on this exciting new adventure through the mystical Cazadero with your family in your new home. Congratulations and thank you for letting us help you achieve your dream!
