I am very happy to share the news of another closed sale at 3189 Cesar Chavez.  This was one of the most challenging transactions I’ve done in a while and I can honestly say that everyone involved is very happy it’s finally closed!  Nick & Deborah were first time buyers who successfully navigated through one challenge after another and now they are the proud owners of this spacious 3bd/2ba top-floor condo in the upper Bernal Heights area.  They were able to negotiate a great deal on this cosmetic fixer, which is a very rare thing in this current market.  A few highlights of our up & down deal included: having our very first offer we ever made accepted (another rarity right now in SF); dealing with establishing a HOA for lending purposes;  negotiating through delays on deadlines; finding out about potential new construction next door; holding up the close due after final walk-thru due to condition; sellers who didn’t hustle to vacate and finally arranging one final dump run even as keys were delivered. But now it’s a done deal and the fun begins as Nick & Deborah tear out the old carpet beginning today. Congratulations & I’m excited to see the renovation results in a few months!  A shout out goes to Kenny Heller at Opes Advisors, who arranged the financing for this deal – he’s a great mortgage professional.
