Mike and Sachi just closed escrow on a newly-constructed home in the Manhattan Beach Tree section. The home - 2101 Elm Avenue - was expertly designed by Mark Trotter and constructed by Fluent Homes.
This modern farmhouse has 5 bedrooms (including one on the main level that is accessed by a sliding barn door), 4½ baths and roughly 3116 square feet on a west-facing 4480 sqft lot. The home was pre-sold during construction.
In 2017, we were asked to find a builder buyer for the old home on that lot using our lot sale program which entails marketing the lot to all the reputable local developers and securing multiple competing bids, all without charging the seller a commission. As you can see from the results, our program successfully accomplished this task to the benefit of both the original teardown's owner (who received 3 bids for this property) as well as the developer with the winning bid (who got a premium price for the new construction that was above list price).
All's well that ends well.
