Price Per Sq Foot, Popcorn Ceilings and Pools.
At 28 square miles, Novato is the largest and most northern town in Marin. A quick zoom on Google earth reveals an idyllic benefit of the landscape; large flat lots featuring single level ranch style homes many complete with 2 car garages, front and back yards and most importantly pools, plenty of them! Another added benefit is also reflected in price per square foot, drastically lower than homes a few minutes down Highway 101.
My excited and proactive clients were antsy to become first time homeowners but with inventory at an all time low and interest rates palpable only for the heartiest of house hunters I knew we had our work cut out for us. Where there is a will there is a way and 5+ months after the initial search began a priced appropriate ($1.099M) 1500’+ sq foot San Marin charmer came on the market. The spa/pool combo and 5 minute drive to Indian Valley Golf Club were enough to overlook any original finishings and easily remedied popcorn ceilings. A combination of timing, expertise and finesse enabled them to walk away with a savings of $134k off the initial asking price, equating to a total savings of $300k+ over the lifetime of their mortgage.
