A Jade District Gem

By Living Room Realty, January 20, 2022

One of the pleasures of having a referral based business is being able to work with the family, friends, and community of my past clients. I recently met Duc from a wonderful past client who I had the pleasure of working with this past fall. 

As many of you know, the real estate market is often a whirlwind of action. My time helping Duc through his home buying processes was testament to this. Duc reached out to me on a Wednesday, we immediately set up a time for a home buying consultation on Friday and then began identifying properties to view the following day. We were under contract by that Sunday!

In spite of the incredibly limited inventory on the market, Duc was able to identify a house that would work for him. One of the most important criteria for my client was making sure that the community was going to be a good fit for him. He hoped to be within walking distance of Asian markets and restaurants. We found the perfect place for him in the heart of  the Jade district . Here, there are an abundance of asian owned markets, restaurants, businesses and community.

While finding a house in this challenging market felt like a feat in and of itself, we were able to go in under asking thanks to this house having been on the market for two weeks. We knew it checked almost all the boxes but that there would be some repairs that would need to be negotiated. I’m grateful that in addition to the price reduction, we were able to have the seller agree to pay nearly all my client’s closing costs and complete some needed repairs. 

I am truly honored to have helped Duc with his home buying process and cannot wait to see how he will transform this house into his home. Buying in a tight market with such limited inventory can have its challenges but it is certainly possible as evident through Duc’s journey.
