3510 Seahorn Circle SOLD for $742,000 ($676.39 PPSF) on February 17th, 2022.
The 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom ground level unit was listed originally listed on December 18th, 2021. The unit was on the market for 7 days before going into escrow. The unit closed escrow in just under 30-days. The unit sold for $22,000 over asking (befor the unofficial end of the Seller's Market). The unit was purchased with cash, reminding us "cash is king."
The unit had no significant upgrades. Original popcorn ceilings. Original kitchen cabinets, coutertops and lighting. Older white appliances (i.g. refrigerator, oven/range, microwave, dishwasher, etc.). Original bathroom vanity and countertops.
Prior to move-in the Buyer did a complete overhaul of the unit. Installing new flooring, kitchen cabintets and countertops, bathroom vanity and coutertops and new stainless steel appliances.
The $742,000 purchase price was well under the average list price ($824,113) and close price ($851,135) for 2 bedroom townhomes/condominiums in Carmel Valley. Even with $25,000-30,000 in upgrades, the new owner stands to get an immediate return on their investment. Another noteworth highlight to this property is its southwest exposure - which captures the most amount of sunlight throughout the year.
Inside information from the

No stairs (ground floor unit) and the potential for privacy issues.
No visible upgrades... which creates a great opportunity for the "right" buyer. Buyers willing to invest some time, money and resources, in updating this unit.
The units location is the most insulated from any road noise that may come from Del Mar Heights Road and High Bluff Drive.
The unit has a generously sized 2 car (detached) garage.
The units southwest exposure commands the most direct sunlight throughout the year.
Limited privacy on the ground level, potential noise concerns from the unit above.
This sale represented nothing more than the market (willing and able Buyers) reacting to the supply and demand that was a reality in early 2022. With nothing else available on the market, the Buyers were more than happy to offer $22,000 OVER the asking price (even with no visible upgrades).
Units within the East Bluff community have the highly coveted 2 car garage, but keep in mind the community has both attached and dettached 2 car garages.
Identifying the upgrades, the PRO's and the CON's of each unit and each sale and then knowing these sales comparables intimately is the key for your agent to plead your case to a seller and help you negotiate and then buy at the absolute lowest price point possible, without this in depth homework, you do not have a strategic advantage to negotiate. DO NOT put your trust in anyone other than the most experienced condo buyers agents that you can find. Put your trust in Brant Lee and Chaco Clotfelter the #1 condo agents in Carmel Valley to help you identify opportunities, competitively navigate and then negotiate the offer process and then enjoy a position of control once in escrow.
When looking for the “right” agents to list your home, make sure they have in-depth knowledge and insight of your community, nearby communities, and the surrounding area, including floor plans, community pros and cons, HOA CC&Rs, rules and regulations, state/local laws and other factors that may effect the sale of your property.
Expect more from your real estate agent. DO NOT put your trust in real estate agents that treat you like another transaction. Any licensed real estate agent can run comparative reports, but do they really know your community inside and out?
