503 Canion Street | North Central

This gorgeous craftsman style home & studio unit in Highland neighborhood are closing next week! We’re excited to help the seller strategize about how to get the most money for their property which included a studio apartment.  Creating a condo regime and selling the units individually provided the most upside for the owners. How can we help you get the most for your property? 


SPOOKY BUYERS’ MARKET

It’s not a secret; it’s SPOOKY out there for buyers! 

There’s an incredibly low amount of home inventory which creates a competitive situation for almost every new listing – this results in multiple offer situations. Buyers in today’s market have to be prepared to go over (sometimes, WAY OVER) asking price for a shot at being the winning offer. Luckily at the Oldham Group we have a variety of strategies used to ensure our buyers WIN more often than not, but sometimes building a new home is a better choice for our buyer clients. 

If you have a little time and the desire to insert your style and selections, building could be a great option! We’ve personally helped hundreds of buyers find the right lot, builder, neighborhood, floor plan and selections in the process of building their dream homes. 

Can we help you build?
