HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Previously listed for sale in 2018, top-producing First Team Real Estate agent Vikki Morrison helped her client close the sale of 17011 Bolero Lane in Huntington Harbour last month for $4,500,000 after fellow First Team agent Chuck Buscemi brought the ideal buyers straight to their front door. A beautiful Cape Cod-style home on Davenport Island, Buscemi remembered the exceptional luxury property when his buyers insisted on purchasing a main-channel waterfront estate. Offering all cash to purchase the home fully furnished, Morrison went to work to secure the owners of 17011 Bolero Lane their next dream home. Delivering seamless transactions for each of their clients amid COVID-19, these two First Team Real Estate agents skillfully demonstrated the power of teamwork.
Featuring an open floorplan, abundance of windows, and details such as reclaimed wide-plank hardwood floors, crown molding, tray ceilings, and recessed lighting throughout, the waterfront sanctuary epitomizes a coastal lifestyle.
“The buyers wanted to purchase the property as soon as possible, furniture and all! So, we made quick work of finding their next home, touring over 25 different properties to find something that was absolutely perfect,” describes Vikki Morrison. “The sellers were overjoyed about the price offered, which allowed them to trade their waterfront lifestyle for a sprawling estate with parklike grounds in San Juan Capistrano.”
Morrison’s sellers used the profits of their home sale to purchase 30727 Paseo Elegancia, a 6-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home complete with a guest house, wine cellar, private office, pool, and spa. No expense was spared constructing the elegant residence with a gourmet kitchen featuring island seating, state of the art appliances, espresso bar, walk-in pantry and informal dining area adjacent to the family room opening to alfresco entertaining. Seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor space, the property includes covered loggias, fireplace, cabana, kitchen, and barbecue integrated with several outdoor living spaces.
Today’s real estate market amid coronavirus is defined by overwhelming buyer demand and limited inventory, creating a seller’s market in Southern California. In July, the average home sale price spiked 6%, and mortgage applications to purchase a home rose 33% compared to last year. With a record number of house hunters entering the market encouraged by record-low mortgage rates, this marks the ideal time to sell for most homeowners who want to cash out big and move onto the next stage in their life.
“This past month has been a busy and exciting time, helping several home sellers make strategic moves in today’s market,” explains Morrison. “Homeowners are experiencing amazing gains at all different price points from the luxury sector to starter homes, like a 26-year old single mother who I had the pleasure of assisting in July as well. We staged her $398,000 condo and sold for thousands over asking price right away – she was thrilled!”
