San Luis Obispo's Newest Community

Serra Meadows - San Luis Obisbo's Newest Community For Sale

Virgin Margarita

A new home has not been built inside the city limits of San Luis Obispo since the Clinton presidency (1998), making the construction of 177 homes nothing short of a miracle.

Serra Meadows is the first phase of a development in the Margarita area: formerly untouched acreage on the south end of town bordered by S. Higuera St. on the west, Broad St. on the east and (half of) Prado Rd. on the south.

A few great things about the development:

  1. The architects purposely designed the homes to match existing homes and neighborhoods in San Luis Obispo, avoiding the sprawled box-look typical of new developments. Drawings and construction photos of the homes can be found on these websites:
    Serra Meadows Overview: http://www.serrameadows.com/neighborhood
    Serra Meadows Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/serrameadows
  2. They’ve specifically designed the community to have a classic American neighborhood aesthetic with tree-lined sidewalks, 10 acres of parks with playgrounds and barbeques, a 16 acre sports field and designated greenways and walkways for bicycles and pedestrians running alongside natural wetlands and creeks.

Parking for most homes will be in the back of the units, with the more social aspects of the home nearer to the street. Utility lines will be buried underground, avoiding the ugly patchwork of criss-crossing telephone and electrical lines. This is a fantastic opportunity for those looking to purchase a new home in San Luis Obispo. Construction is underway and the first few homes should be completed in the near future.

Staging Your Home

Easy Home Staging Tips to get you SOLD!

Staging your home doesn't have to break your bank. Here are a few simple tips to clean up your curb appeal and boost your homes value...

Fresh Coat of Paint-Adding a neutral color to the interior and exterior of your home is a great way to freshen up your property. Some buyers might be turned away from a room that is painted bright pink, by applying a coat of paint you are giving the buyers the ability to picture their style and design.

Trim the Hedges- Cleaning up the yard makes a huge impression. The first thing a potential buyer sees when arriving at your house is the front yard. Taking the time to clean up fallen leaves and triming back any over-grown trees will make your property more appealing to the buyer.

Get Rid of Bad Odor- For a potential buyer one of the biggest turn offs from purchasing a home is odor (cigerette, animal, etc.). Shampooing carpets and drapes will help get rid of un-wanted smells. Before an agent comes by with their client open the windows and allow some fresh air in!

Sold-Short Sale

After a YEAR of negotiations with the bank we were able to get this property SOLD! Congratulations to our sellers and to the new home owners!

 

Short Sales can be a long and grueling process. So why short sale? Here are a few reasons...

Stay in your home until an approved short sale is completed. Instead of a foreclosure, which will end your occupancy of your current home at the auction date that has  been given to you, the Martincello and Hedrick Home Selling Team and stop the auction date and keep you in your home an additinal 3-5 month. This gives you time to plan your next more.

No cost to you! The short sale process is paid for you by the bank and costs you nothing! The goal is to have the bank discharge all liens and loans to the property and deficiency judgments so in the end you owe nothing. All fees will be paid for you...IN FULL!

To learn more about how a Short Sale can help visit our website mhrealestateteam.com or call us as 805-596-4441. We look forward to helping you will all of your real estate needs.
