Your Neighbor in Real Estate: August 2011

The Ugliest House in Ventura County Real Estate History....

The Ugliest House in Ventura County Real Estate History.....

                                                                     ....... has a light shining in the window.

 

Back in the day, when I first started real estate, my trainer for my first two transactions very wisely told me that if you looked at the ugliest house in town, it will most likely have a light shining in the window.light in window

He told me this because I was concerned that my first listing wasn't that great, was kind of ugly, and it would reflect badly on me (you see, it was all about me).

The light shining in the window announced to the world that yes, someone was living here, and thought well enough of it to spend some time here. I always remembered this and it has stood me well in judging many listings since.

Not too long ago, I came across another  "ugliest house In Ventura County Real Estate History," that I would be listing for sale. I will not be posting the picture of that home here in this blog because there is probably some child that grew up there and once called this place home. Or there may be a newlywed couple that at one time rented this house as their "first home." 

I cannot displace their memories of the house they once called home with a picture labeled  "the ugliest house in Ventura County Real Estate History."

And I cannot have people point and laugh in derision.....

 because even now there is a light shining in the window.....

 

 

P.S. The house sold in 24 hours with multiple offers. It is not so ugly after all!
