Hi Peg! Ann Berry-Kline here! Looking at property for your college students is a wise investment! The dorms at UCSC are great and provide that first step away from home that, we as parents, want our kids to have. After that, when they need a bit more space or know the land a bit better, a property that you can rent out in addition to them staying there is wise and can be cost effective.

Give me a call to talk more about what you are thinking about and I can help you with the numbers to see if this is something that makes sense for you and your family!

Greg, since this is a single family residence with an accessory dwelling unit, the agent probably elected to list it as such to attract the attention of buyers who are primarily looking for that configuration.

If your property is currently listed with an agent, ask him/her to remove the post--if not contact Trulia directly, under the help tab.

As of 2/22/10 the property still has not closed ecsrow. Short sales can take 4-6 months for approval. The lender may make a counter offer to the prospective buyer. The lender will send a agent or an appriaser to estimate the market value. It may be higher,lower, or the same as the buyer-seller agreed upon sale price.
The buyer or seller can cancel the contract if certain terms of ths contract are not met, such as price, repairs, no deficiency clauses and so on are not agreed upon by the parties to the purchaase contract. I have a lot of experience in the short sale process, if you need my help please feel free to call me at 588-1988.

Hi Dave,
I am Sandy Wallace, also with Keller Williams Realty in Santa Cruz. I remember that this sale was a Round-Robin that went late into the night on a Sunday. 135 Naglee sold after two weeks of intense marketing for $100,000 over asking. Keller Williams Realty has shown this Selling Strategy works to bring the highest and best price quickly. Buyers and sellers there is opportunity in any Real Estate market.
