SOLD in Buena Creek Before Hitting the Market!

October 16, 2018

Another great Vista home sold by Casey Cooke! This is the 2nd time I have had the pleasure of selling this home. The first time the previous owners S & C were referred to me by a mutual acquaintance. After meeting with me and a few others they decided to hire me and we were able to get the home sold promptly. That was about 5 years ago and I represented the seller, not the buyer. Fast forward to August of 2018 and the new owner decided she wanted to sell the home and move out of state. She met with two agents that were personally referred to her but neither were a match. She remembered that I had done a good job when I sold it before so she called on me. We got the home listed promptly and before even hitting the market were able to find just the right buyer through another agent. The home just closed a couple of days ago and buyer and seller are both very happy. Here are all the details and some photos of the great home. I would be happy to do the same for you or someone you know so please keep me in mind next time you or a friend or relative needs the assistance of a great real estate agent.

Thanks for reading!


996 Sugarbush Drive, Vista CA 92084

Closed 10/12/18 at $880,000 and the buyer paid $45,000 of the seller’s closing costs

Here is the main description I wrote for the MLS(Multiple Listing Service). This is the description most people see as it is the one picked up by Zillow and other sites and cannot exceed 510 characters including spaces and punctuation.

“Terrific single story in one of the most sought after locations in all of Vista! Striking curb appeal from the front, expansive 1 ac+ lot w/large circular driveway. Formal entry into spacious living room with soaring ceilings and view of the backyard. Private master retreat on the north wing with large sitting area. Ideal floor plan with all guest rooms on the opposite side of the home. Large, open “kitchen/great room. Entertainer’s backyard with pool/spa gazebo.”

Here is the supplemental description I wrote for the MLS. Most agents do not use this section but I like to because we can use it to share so much more information, up to several thousand characters.

“Welcome home to 996 Sugarbush Drive. This single story ranch style gem has one of the best floor plans I have ever seen, and is located in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of North County. As you head up Sugarbush Drive and pass all of the well manicured lawns and spacious lots, you realize you are someplace special and that this is not your average cookie-cutter California style home. As you pull up to the home you are greeted by the striking curb appeal and the large circular driveway of the 1+ acre lot this home sits on. The formal entry leads you into the spacious living room with soaring ceilings and views of the pool and backyard. Make a left turn towards the north wing and you enter the secluded master bedroom with attached sitting room and spacious master bath. The south wing includes all three spare bedrooms, two full baths, separate laundry room, and direct access to the three car garage. Right in the middle of it all is the open kitchen/great room with granite countertops, oversized brick fireplace, and direct access to the formal dining room and the backyard. The home is 3695 ft., it includes four full bedrooms, three full baths, three fireplaces, a three car garage, and is situated on just over 1 acre. Interested parties are urged to move quickly, homes in this neighborhood don’t come along very often and this one is priced to sell quickly!”

Here are a few more pictures. I really enjoy twilight photos to showcase a great home like this one.
