Alhambra: Dusty Deals

As a real estate agent working in and around Pasadena California, I am constantly getting phone calls from buyers looking for great deals.

If you are looking for a real estate deal, you came to the right place. I will be posting my "Dusty Deals" by area on a monthly basis right here for your review.

What is a "Dusty Deal" list? It is a list of real estate for sale including homes, condos and townhomes that have been on the market for over 100 days. Are all of these great deals? Not necessarily. BUT, the seller has been actively marketing their homes for a very long time and is probably ready to deal.

Why are these homes on the market still? The most likely reason is that they were over priced to begin with. The first few weeks of marketing a home for sale are the most critical weeks for any seller. If the property is overpriced, or not marketed correctly, it gets stale. Local real estate agents ignore these homes and avoid showing them to their buyers. Potential home buyers look these homes up on the internet, but wonder what is wrong with these homes since they didn't sell.

My take on this is, if you are looking for a deal, these homes are the best place to start. Why? Home sellers are tired of showing their homes and most are ready to NEGOTIATE their price and SELL!

So here's a list of homes for sale in Alhambra that have been on the market for over 100 days:

San Marino's Lacy Park 4th of July 2008

I just came back from San Marino's Lacy Park after saving a nice spot for this evening's fireworks celebration. We got there around 7:55 am and the line was one of the longest that I've seen over the years. It was snaking all the way around Virginia Road.

READ 2012 4th of July Celebrations by clicking here!

READ MORE: Lacy Park - A Hidden Treasure

The first person in line waiting for the gates to open at 8 am was Steve Morgan. He got there at 5 am to get his coveted spot for this evening's festivities. I was very lucky this morning because a friend of mine was there at 7:15, patiently stood in line and was able to save my family a spot right next to his under the Eucalyptus tree on the North side of the park. Lesson learned: Have lots of friends!

The gates were opened at 8 am and everyone calmly walked into the park and then just as calmly - NOT! - picked up speed on their way to their favorite spot.

Honestly, if you get to Lacy Park a bit after 8 am, you'd be okay as well. There were plenty of nice spots available still.

Here are some of the pictures that I took of Lacy Park this morning:

derek barker dog park

Derek Barker was there collecting signatures from San Marino home owners for his Eagle Scout Project. He is taking on the challenge of creating a Dog Park in San Marino's Lacy Park. Derek needs to collect 1,200 signatures and hopes to have the Dog Park on the East side of the Park not too far from the tennis courts. His idea is to have the Dog Park separated for small and large dogs.

If you are a San Marino resident and want to support Derek in this initiative, please email me at Irina@Irina4RealEstate.com so that Derek can collect your signature. He needs our support!
