A star-crossed closing on 848 N. Avon

Yes! 848 N. Avon in Burbank closed! I had the pleasure of representing buyer clients Todd and Anika in this deal. We had been in escrow on another property on Lomita in Burbank, but it fell out of escrow because the appraisal came back lower than the purchase price. Imagine our surprise and delight to find this house soon after. There were no appraisal or poor condition problems on this one; it is really nice.

Which is more than I can say for the seller. She is an amateur astrologer, and the planets had to be perfectly aligned for her to contemplate moving. Of course, they didn’t align until after closing and the date for possession in spite of her assurances to her agent that she’d move out on time. Well, she didn’t, so on behalf of my clients, I had to light a fire under her moon-is-in-Aquarius rear end to move the horoscope along. Sometimes, real estate isn’t pretty! But she’s out now; and I’m looking forward to seeing how Todd and Anika will decorate the house.
