Home on 5 Acres.....SOLD!

By
Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California, Inc. (lic. #01878277) DRE# 00949880

My listing on Cork Tree Lane closed yesterday.  When we first put the home on the market, we thought a developer might end up purchasing the home.  The land to the South of it and to the East of it is owned by a developer.  He did express interest in the home, but only with an option to buy the home.  My clients could not wait for that long so we kept the home on the market.

A few other potential buyers came forward and we received an offer from a multi-generational family who would like to renovate the home, grow some of their food and have a few animals.  They are so excited and my client is very happy.  My client grew up in the home and loves the idea that the current family will enjoy the same experience.

I was at the house yesterday to get a couple of last minute items done and to hand over the keys. This home and the land will need some work, but I think with a little imagination, this property can be something special.

I also noticed that the pomegranates were ripe.  In the Persian culture, pomegranates symbolize abundance, blessings, fertility and immortality.  They are also known as, "the fruit of heaven." 

Pomegranate Tree

My wish is that this is a good sign for my client and the family moving in.  I hope they all enjoy abundance, blessings, fertility of the land and a long, happy life.

Hi Ray, my first broker, Clark Halstead, in New York City always said "there's a lid for every pot" when it came to real estate. This pot found its lid... congratulations on the great sale.

Hi Raymond- congratulations on the sale and closing of the home on 5 acres. We had a pomegranate tree at our home when I was a wee one.

Hello Raymond - congratulations on this recent Sacramento real estate transaction.  On a separate note, I enjoy pomegranates but they do tend to be rather messy.

Good morning, Will Hamm and thank you.  I always celebrate when others in the Rain complete a transaction.  It is such a good group of real estate professionals.  How is your back healing?

 

I really like that saying, Nina Hollander, Broker.  I may borrow it from time to time.

Thank you very much, Ron and Alexandra Seigel.  We have started cooking a lot more Middle Eastern food which uses a lot of pomegranates.  I don't know why it took my almost 58 years to add pomegranates to my diet.  

 

Thank you, Kathy Streib.  I have seen so many pomegranate trees in peoples yards full of fruit and I always think they look so beautiful.  I planted one at our last home.  Over about 5 years, it produced one or two pomegranates.  I did not realize it took so long for the tree to produce.  It was still a very nice addition to the yard.

Thank you, Endre Barath, Jr..  We did have our challenges.  The day my photographer was there, he opened the curtains to a wall of flames heading for the house.  His quick thinking saved the house.  I do not know what I am going to do now that he has started school at UCLA.  

 

I will agree with that, Michael Jacobs.  They are messy, but they are worth it!  And thank you!

HI Joan Cox.  Thank you!  I did know some of the symbolic meanings regarding pomegranates.  I did a little research before I wrote the article, though, then I used what I liked best.  😉  

 

Yes, Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400, I think everyone is excited.  It was a little bit of a challenging escrow, but it all worked out nicely.

Thank you very much, Roy Kelley.  I am working towards a productive autumn.  We are working on our next listing.  A home that has been used for a rental for the last few years and in need of a little sprucing up.  I hope you are well and are enjoying the fall!
