Just Sold: Crest Drive, Encinitas [Agent Interview]

Just Sold on Crest Drive, Encinitas

Property Summary:

With 1.11 acres on Encinitas’ highly sought after Crest Drive, this home enjoys ocean views from nearly every room! Main level has vaulted ceilings, kitchen, view deck off living and dining rooms, master retreat, and secondary bedroom with full hall bath. Lower level has separate entrance, ocean views from family room and two bedrooms, and a full bath. Highly useable, level lot has tremendous opportunity with 80 feet of street frontage and 570 feet of depth.

Teammate Interviewed:

Lisa Perich represented the seller.

Q: What is your favorite feature of this property?

A: There are so many things that I loved about this property, but if I had to name one, it would be the ocean view spanning the entire lot. The sheer scarcity of ocean view property sitting on over an acre of land made this home truly special. Crest Drive is like stepping back in time, where the rural coastal landscapes thrived.

Q: How many days was the escrow for this sale?

A: 21 days!

Q: Was there anything unique or challenging about the transaction?

A: We faced delays due to the government shutdown, but I was able to present workarounds in order to meet our 21-day closing.

Q: Any takeaways from this deal?

A: This property was in probate for over two years and there were several anxious heirs. Like always, my goal was to sell the home for the highest price in the shortest amount of time. I knew I had to create a unique marketing plan. Success! That plan resulted in receiving several offers and ultimately closing escrow for $107,500 over asking. Over the years of representing probate transactions, I realize the sensitivity of the situation and was elated in our successful closing. My biggest take away is knowing these heirs' long probate journey has come to a successful outcome.
