Moving Checklist: RealtorKJ

The whirlwind of moving can quickly take on the effects of a hurricane when you add in kids, pets, or special circumstances. As is the case with most things in life, planning is key!

Whether you have six months, or six days to get it all done, just take a deep breath, prepare and let’s get planning!

Once you have decided to move, and established a loose timeline, its time to prep, prioritize and pack.

Craftsman Style Home Attracts Buyers

Hollister, Gilroy, and Morgan Hill have a lot of new developments in progress.  Some buyers gravitate towards new and shiney objects, but this beautiful Craftsman style home caught the eyes of many home buyers in Hollister.

Enjoy all the charm this one-and-a-half story, three bedrooms and two-and-half bathrooms has to offer. The over 100 years old home has brick and wood siding with a welcoming covered porch. 1045 West Street in Hollister also has custom woodwork with some recessed ceilings, built-in cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and crown molding. The backyard is a private garden with an automatic gate for tandem parking and guest parking. The detached two-car garage structure plus a living area and more is a must see feature. Walking distance to San Benito High School. Please contact Kristen Jurevich with Intero Real Estate Services for more information at (831) 635-6719.

Within a week of going on the MLS, this property went pending. Don’t lose hope as a home buyer, it isn’t over until it closes.  With the lending industry today, we have seen qualified buyers miss out at the last minute.  Perhaps you can write a solid back-up offer and sneak into contract should the original offer fall through.  Also it is a good chance Kristen Jurevich may have insider knowledge of other Downtown Hollister homes coming on the market. Contact Intero Real Estate agent Kristen Jurevich at (831) 635-6719 or (650) 503-4110 for a home buying guide.
