Day 16: An easy par three…

…or so I hoped.

They say the third time is a charm, but not so much for this adorable little golf house.  I have personally hosted three open houses for this charming (and gorgeous) home on the 12th fairway of the Copper River Golf Course.  I hoped that tonight would be the night that we would find it’s new forever family after hosting a lovely brokers’ open house, complete with wine, cheese, and giveaways.  Sadly, traffic was very light.

This is not my listing, but after logging so much time and emotional energy toward marketing it, I really really want to find a buyer for it.  I have a deep affinity for Granville homes.  They have a lot of style and substance, and this one is no exception.  With 8′ tall doors, a chef’s kitchen, and beautiful tile flooring, it is a stunning home for a small family. What makes it such a niche property is the location.  With a small patio backyard, that opens up to the golf course, there isn’t much privacy or outdoor space to roam.  These are not bad features, but rather features that require a certain kind of buyer to appreciate them.

I consulted with a couple of more experienced Realtors after this open house to get some advice on how to find a buyer who would appreciate this house for all it has to offer. It looks like I’ll need to conduct some market research in the neighborhood by pounding the pavement and ringing doorbells. Maybe one of the neighbors has a friend or family member who would love to buy this golf house. Maybe one of you, my dear readers, can help make this house a home.

Cheers,

Erica

My name is Erica Maranian and I am a Realtor at FresYes Realty. As a kid growing up in the Central Valley, I dreamt of someday seeing the world. I came to realize that the world had been in my backyard the entire time. Fresno is a short drive from some of the most majestic landmarks in the entire nation. We feed the world with our fertile land. Our culture is diverse. Our city is historic. Our people are friendly. I’m in the business of helping people. My prior experience as a banker, manager, underwriter, and analyst allowed me to develop expertise in being a good listener, uncovering needs and priorities, and seeing what is possible given the available financial resources. As a Realtor, I want to help you in your journey of buying or selling a home in the Central Valley. I attended California State University, Fresno (Go ‘Dogs!) and earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. I went on to earn an M.B.A. graduate degree, with honors, from Colorado State University’s prestigious graduate school of business…right from the comfort of my Fresno home. My passions include photography, contemporary literature, music, exploring the outdoors, and living a healthy lifestyle. I currently live in Clovis with my husband, Chris, and our two sons, Nickolas and Alexander. As a family, we live, play, and work right here in the Central Valley. My family and my heart are strongly rooted Fresno County. I would love to help you find a corner of this awesome place to call your own.
