Just Sold: Pasadena Traditional

I recently closed escrow on this charming Pasadena Traditional in Pasadena’s President’s neighborhood.  About my buyer:  I had sold his parent’s La Crescenta home years ago.  The son has grown, has a great job, and is getting married in the fall.

1417 n. Harding ave

Built in 1936, this home has the original kitchen and baths and no central air. However, it did offer an enormous basement (think man cave). Additionally, it has lots of charm (peg-and-groove hardwood floors, French windows, arches, nooks, etc.).

We looked at about 20 homes and this was our second offer.  This home sold in multiple offers, and we were the successful bidder. We thoroughly inspected this Pasadena fixer and obtained numerous estimates and reports.  I was in town for the primary inspection but was in Seattle visiting family for many of the estimates; fortunately, my Realtor, brother-in-law Joe, was able to fill in.

Bride and grooms first me

My well qualified and very responsible clients have enough cash reserves to make some very necessary repairs and improvements prior to moving into this Pasadena traditional. We are looking forward to them having a new home to begin their marriage. Handing the keys to a buyer is always exciting, but I am especially happy/relieved/excited that the home will be ready for them to begin their new life together.  #RealEstateMatchMaker
