Mesquite Nevada Custom Home - Sold in 30 Days

Real Estate Agent with Desert Gold Realty - Mesquite NV Homes For Sale Mesquite NV Realtor

Another Mesquite Nevada custom home sold in 30 days - the good ones go quick!  This home was in one of the higher price ranges of MLS listings here, they do not get as many showings as the lower priced homes in our area.  Yet the higher end homes that were previously on the market for a long time are starting to sell.  Could be a sign of the real estate recovery in several neighborhoods in Mesquite.

Buyers are looking at homes online and coming to Mesquite with a list of homes to see, only to find that many of them are already pending sales when they get here.

Fruits and Vegetables Grow in Mesquite NVGlad it sold quickly, but I am a little disappointed that I did not get to go over and help myself to some of the figs and grapes that were about to be ripe for the picking.

The home was vacant, so picking the fruit from the trees would be part of my listing maintenance, right? 

And yes, fruits and vegetables do grow in Mesquite Nevada - even with the desert climate and very little rain.  We do have automatic sprinkler and drip systems.  :)

The escrow period went well.  All 4 days of it!  It was a trustee sale, but we got the offer and signatures on Thursday and opened escrow.  This was another cash sale with no appraisal or loan to wait for, so we were able to close quickly, but the buyer requested 30 days to close escrow in the contract.

Mr Buyer called on Monday and said, 'Let's close it today!'  We couldn't quite accommodate him, but we did manage to close on Tuesday.  It is a little easier to get things done when there is No Homeowner Association in this neighborhood.  Getting the HOA demands and records can take up to 10 days.

So now the new owner of this lovely custom home gets to harvest the crops!

But since the figs and grapes are attached to the plant, and the plants in the ground, I hope the buyers weren’t planning on wine or fig jam! lol

Jane, I would have to jump the fence - they changed the locks.  Party-poopers.

Debra - I sure enjoyed it!  And the quick close was a total surprise, but easy to accomplish in a No HOA community.

Brenda - I think there will be.  :)  The more expensive custom homes are starting to sell, after a long drought.

Erika - our summer real estate market is traditionally slow - too hot.  But it seems like when someone wants to buy, they want it now.  I like that.

Greg - thank you - it was a very nice but figless transaction. 

Kathy - this one was a surprise - it is not in one of the neighborhoods that seem to have bottomed out - but who knows?  Every journey has a first step.

Jim - only you would think up fig jam!  Or is that a common thing in Southern California?  Figs are actually not grown here much.

I like Mesquite! My Dad lived there for awhile......and passed away there.... we "honk the horn", per his request everytime we go by on the 15 on the way to Utah.... and stop to place flowers on the way back! Last time we were through Mesquite, we were quite surprised with all the new development and higher end houses going in around the hills!  Good Luck with the future market that may boom in Mesquite!

Teri - I will listen for that honk, and wonder if it is you - :)  Mesquite is growing, even through the slow times, the custom homes on the hill tops are gorgeous - some amazing views!

Norma - I think I have the record - 3 days, on another one, and it was a Sun City new home - a spec.  :)

Michelle, Thanks, I knew that I had a right to the crops under the maintenance responsibility of listing a vacant home.
