Mission Heights Sold!

Our recent remodel near Mission Valley just sold for $750,000. The market is really hot right now even in the face of a National Pandemic. I only had projected a sales price of $650,000 when I purchased it. After multiple offers and overbidding, somehow it appraised at this sales price and is now the new high sales comparable in 92111 by far at $608.00/s.f. Enjoy the video of the remodel!

We finished the project and it is now on the market for sale. What a unique blend of new materials and the trendy current blue/grey color scheme. I couldn’t be happier with the way everything came together and I am sure its going to make someone very happy as their new home! The aluminum half-round gutters tied in perfectly to the mailbox and goose neck porch light.

Trying to bring this house to the finish line. It has been a very smooth project. We ran 12 of the best sub-contractors in town through this house, each specializing in their respective trades. The tile jobs are coming out great, we stayed with the blue/grey theme but were careful not to overplay it. The kitchen cabinet color is incredible and looks fantastic next to the pure white quartz counter tops. I love the contrast we got from the Matte Black cabinet hardware too. Floors look great a little darker than I usually go. 

Landscaping, tile jobs, exterior paint and all sorts of small details are coming together. I decided on low maintenance out front but gave the new homeowner a big area of sod on irrigation out back for kids to play.

We got a great start on the project, the new driveway and retaining wall are done, brand new 30- year roof in the color Estate Grey and we redid the board and batten siding so it will look sharp when we paint the exterior.

It was really tough picking the exterior colors this time. I have been wanting to do a Navy Blue or Blue/Grey exterior since its popular now. Blue/Grey is the trend color for 2020. There was a house 1 block over that another investor painted blue, he really missed the mark and we even had neighbors telling us how much they hated it. I ended up putting 10 samples up and finally decided on a James Hardie Siding color called Evening Blue JH70-30. We got it in Behr at Home Depot, its in their computer.

The Navy Blue and Blue/Grey home design trend is really hot this year. We changed cabinet vendors to a custom supplier and they are actually made right here in San Diego and not China! I love spending money locally given the chance, additionally we got to pick the cabinet colors. I went with Benjamin Moore’s Mozart Blue BM 1665 for the lower cabinets in this kitchen to continue with the blue/grey theme.

We purchased this house right in the peak of the COVID-19 scare. The seller was moving out of town and the house needed extensive repairs. We are doing everything new top to bottom including a new driveway so it will come out incredible. There was a bad retaining wall that had a 30,000 estimate to repair as well. The homeowner decided to sell as-is instead of making all these repairs.

This property is in Mission Heights, the neighborhood right up on the hill above Fashion Valley Mall.

 

 

The first thing we did was demo the whole house and remove the bad roof, driveway, and retaining wall. I always start with the roof and fixing all the damaged facia board. This is going to be a great house as soon as we clear the backyard and grade it flat.

We are going to do a very complete remodel on this fixer upper. There was a foundation repair about 20 years ago, I am not happy with the concrete floors so we will level them a little better as well. Stay tuned we have this scheduled for a 5 week complete transformation.
