Welcome to my new listing, a charming Foothill Farms home that is not only affordable but also updated. It is situated among wonderful neighbors, says the seller, who really hates to move away from them. She can't stop talking about how much she loves her neighbors, which is a good thing. One of them came over as she was preparing the home for sale, in the middle of the night, and helped her to move the refrigerator back into the house from the garage.
The reason the refrigerator was in the garage was because some other agent the seller had interviewed told her buyers don't want it and she should remove it. I suggested she forget about everything that agent told her, to put the 'frig back into the kitchen and then hire me instead. First-time home buyers LOVE to get a refrigerator. Do you know how much a new refrigerator costs? These guys are often scraping together the down payment and closing costs. It's expensive to buy a new refrigerator.
Besides, there was nothing wrong with her existing refrigerator. You can read more and see all of the photographs in my personal blog today at this link: Buying a Foothill Farms Home the Seller Remodeled for Herself.
