Years ago, I had the pleasure of selling Lloyd Wright’s Gainsbourg House in La Canada. It is a beautiful mid-century 5-bedroom home sited on ½ acre (at the time it had a pool, which the buyer replaced with a butterfly garden). I wanted to buy the home myself, but sadly the mid-century architecture did not appeal to my husband.
I have since become a fan of Lloyd Wright’s architecture and had the pleasure of recently selling Lloyd’s E.R. Lewis House. The home was beautifully sited on ¼ acre of lushly landscaped grounds in Glendale’s Chevy Chase Canyon neighborhood. Selling in multiple offers for $15,000 more than the asking price.
The buyer was drawn to the expertly landscaped grounds, which my client reluctantly left behind. Surprisingly, a friend of hers spotted our ad in the local Outlook Newspaper and arranged a showing appointment. The buyer instantly fell in love with the home. According to the National Association of Realtors, only 80% of home buyers surveyed rarely, if ever, use a newspaper to find a home. Thus, it was a stroke of luck for the buyer, the seller, and us.
