First Things First / Value / The Holy Grail of pricing today, causing Realtors all kinds of pain and havoc in the market, is Zillow.com's home pricing estimator, the "Zestimate." This online pricing mechanism often suggests to consumers that a home's estimated value is less than the Seller's and Realtor's asking price based on a competitive marketing analysis done by the Realtor on the Seller's behalf.
In this case, though, the "Zestimate" comes in substantially higher than the asking price, the actual list price, of the subject property. The "Zestimate" is $671,000 at the time of this writing, October, 2014, and the asking price, the price the Seller will accept, is $469,950.
Additionally, the property is being offered by AUCTION. This will be explained below. The point made here is that VALUE is established and that, possibly, a bargain is to be had.
The Setting / Whether considering a purchase of the beach side cottage for private use as a main residence, a beach side getaway or a fantastic vacation home/rental, the ambiance of this property -- as indicated by the interior photo array -- is warm, modern, welcoming and rich.
In the Seller's own words, "Coffee, tea or mimosa's on the deck for breakfast beckons daily; a glass of wine watching the sunset with friends or a five minute walk to Carlsbad beach or the Coaster calls, go with it, and see how things will change.
"Wake up every morning to an ocean view from your living room and kitchen. It's only minutes to the I-5 and a short distance to downtown San Diego, the Del Mar Race Track, Carlsbad Outlet shopping, four star restaurants, Lego Land and historic downtown Carlsbad Village.
"Ride or jog the scenic 101 while enjoying ocean breezes and white water views. We feel safe and secure in this lovely beach park that is experiencing major upgrades that you will enjoy in the near future and we believe you will feel secure too.
"Soon to be a gated community with a new clubhouse, recreation and exercise rooms, the value of property in Lanikai Lane will likely grow and grow. That's why we built here with the full intention to occupy the property ourselves for many years to come. Opportunity in the job market, however, has caused us to sell all-too-soon for a move to Oregon. We will miss living here."
Features / Two Bedrooms, Two Baths, 1,387 Sq. Ft., Two-Car Garage with Ample Storage and Roof Top Deck. This property is a real jewel with a beautiful well manicured, low maintenance yard.
