Bitter-Sweet Closings

It is rare that Palomar property owners call and say “We’d like to sell our place on Palomar”. Most folks don’t really want to sell but there comes a time to let things go. For many decades, the properties on the mountain have been part time, occasional weekend or even summer getaways. Cabins have held so many happy memories.

That is the case with the closing today. The sellers have 16 years of special times at their much-loved cabin. The kids are all grown up now. It has been so fun meeting up with family and friends and seeing them enjoy the cabin, too. All the years of experiencing the Four Seasons at their little piece of paradise, have been so special, so close to their home in San Diego.

The buyers appreciate most things that were available to stay at the cabin, but there were a couple pieces of furniture to re-home. Many thanks to Meg and Jesse for being the first to claim the furniture. Then, two big pickup loads, saved the old deck wood from a land fill and and are waiting for a fun time ’round Will and Doug’s big campfire ring.

All inspections were done, documents are signed, buyers came up for their walk-through, title has reviewed closing paperwork and funds have arrived at escrow. We should have confirmation very soon and the sold sign will be coming down, ready for the next listing.

The first daffodils opened up and it is a new chapter for the buyers and sellers of another cabin on Palomar. The owners are finishing up work in Orange County, packing for the weekend and thrilled to celebrate Good Friday and Easter at their cabin!

Thinking of selling? Many buyers are anxiously waiting to own a piece of paradise on Palomar.
