Hi Lottie

Sounds like a wonderful property coming to the San Carlos market in early October, with features and amenities that are sure to please. I look forward to learning I'm sure buyers will as well.

Nice preview Lottie. Sounds like a wonderful home with lots to offer buyers in San Carlos. I'm sure once the home owner is ready to list this one won't be on the market long.

Lovely pool, 2 parking places and location, location, location. When this property is ready for visitors, I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a bidding war.   Have a great weekend.

Hello Jeff Dowler and Debe Maxwell, CRS - it's nice to have a great place to offer buyers that's less than the 1.5M average San Carlos price.

Hello Endre Barath, Jr. -  I suspect it will be on the market less than 2 weeks; we're waiting for the sellers to move to their new place, then staging, professional photos, etc. 

Good morning, Joan Cox - I'd love to put it on the market today--but it's premature, so we wait....

Hello Jack Tenold - with our extreme shortage of inventory, multiple offers are the norm. We'll see what next month brings.

How are you faring in Spokane with smoke from the various forest fires? I can't wait for the winter rains to come, and hope early October brings some good ones.

Sounds like it will be a very nice listing for you!  I hope that it sells as soon as you put it on the market.

Thanks Brian England - I'll post again when we have professional photos up, staging in, etc.
