San Marino Broker’s Open House – October 9, 2008

Today, there were only 2 homes on the San Marino broker caravan. Both of these San Marino homes have been on the market for awhile and were “reviews”. A “review” is a name given by the Multiple Listing Service for a property that is not newly listed, but has either had a price change or the real estate agent wanted to bring a bit more attention to the home.

The first San Marino home was at 1290 Winston Avenue and has been on the market since early August.  It is offered for sale at $1,690,000 and is also available for lease.

It’s marketed as a French Country Traditional and although this San Marino home looks very simple from the street, it’s nicely updated inside and has quite a bit of space.  this home has 3 bedrooms with an office and 3 baths.  It sits on a large lot – over 12,000 sq.. ft. and the interior is almost 3,000 sq. ft.  It is situated North of Huntington Drive, minutes from the San Marino High School.  It has a nice back yard with a pool and a sports court!  Outdoor speaker system and BBQ make it a great place for entertaining.

It’s been updated throughout and is priced at $577 per sq. ft.  One drawback of this home is that it sits on a T-intersection and feng shui buyers are very conscious of that fact.

The second home on broker caravan today was South of Huntington Drive at 1479 Van Dyke Road.  This San Marino home was just reduced by $36,000 and is priced at $1,299,000.  It is also 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with lots of closet sapce and a family room.

It’s a very bright home with a beautiful back yard with a pool.  The floor plan is a bit fragmented though with an addition of a family room and a master bedroom.  It’s priced at $525 per sq. ft, but given the fact that it’s been on the market for over 2 months, I think that it will take another price reduction to move this San Marino home.

That’s it for today.  Don’t forget to stop by the homecoming parade tomorrow and don’t miss the homecoming game at the San Marino High School!
