Willow Glen Update; Feb 25, 2010

Today I went on the weekly realtor tour of houses coming on market in Willow Glen, there are some really nice houses coming on market. Here’s some stats and summaries of a few of my favorites.

Fast Facts

20 homes were sold in Willow Glen last week, 5 of them were “short sales.” Accounting for those sales and the 8 new listings we toured today, there are now 145 active listings in Willow Glen, lower than average.

Hot New Listings

Deal of the Week: 1148 Willow Glen Way

I think this is the deal of the week, a gorgeous little 2/1 on Willow Glen Way listed for $729,000. It’s a total doll house with beautiful renovations and an addition to the bathroom, which I shot a quick video of. It’s totally prime location and isn’t going to last, so if you know somebody looking for high-end Willow Glen charm that doesn’t need/want a huge house, they need to move fast!

Another one that’ll go fast: 1152 Fairview

This really nice 4/3 is on a prime tree-lined Willow Glen street a short stroll away from the Avenue, and I think it’s a great deal listed at $1,229,000. I’m a little partial to it because it’s a Tudor built in 1928, just like my own home, but this house really does have it all — it’s one level which many people with families look for, it’s got a great layout, and it’s been very nicely remodeled. I especially liked the kitchen. I’m no chef, but even I could picture myself cooking something more than the bacon and eggs I limit myself to at home. : )

Big Time Willow Glen Charm

The last new listing I want to highlight is 1155 El Abra Way, a good-sized 5/3 listed for $1,278,000. It features a very nicely remodelled kitchen, and a finished basement…with a fireplace! Upstairs there’s a balcony off a common area that was basking with sunlight and begging for you to enjoy your morning coffee and paper out there. I really liked the billowy curtains, shown here in the video I shot, they give you a good idea of the high-end details and decor that make this house pretty special.

These are just three of the 8 houses that just came on market, if you want to learn more about them or find out what else just came on, pop me a note!
