11 Days to Close with plotted easement!

Seeing that Brown Bear Ridge sign with icicles, I just had to stop and take the photo for you. We didn’t let that last big snow slow us down to get this cabin closed real quick. That cowboy I live with took his old John Deere over there to plow so I could show this new family the cabin. We were able to get right through the snow, and build and big fire in the fireplace to warm up while they were checking things out.

The cabin had been in escrow for a few months with another buyer while many things were being done. Our mountain locals really went to work to breath much needed new life into this cabin. They got the broken pipes replaced, paint touched up, a very nice railing and ladder to the loft made, water turned on, new septic and a propane tank installed. We found out the electrical panel from decades ago had been recalled so that was replaced. There is a new refrigerator and stove, RV hookups and lots of tree work done for insurance and fire safety and more.

The seller had a couple different addresses for the cabin. When I posted a sign a neighbor said they had the same number. Oh dear, that won’t work. So a connection at the county gave us a couple options. We got the house numbers heading the right direction so all is well.

Another project was to puzzle out a deeded easement to this property. Over the years we have been able to get letters from the county recognizing public access on several quarter-corner plat maps but this cabin is in an area that we hadn’t been able to cure. Pulling adjoining parcel information some discoveries were made so all is well. If you own a property and want to pull a permit to build or remodel, the country requires a ‘deeded plotted easement’. Happy dance when these all come together so they can be recorded with title insurance.

But the BIG plus?! A very nice new family is joining us on Palomar!

Bonnie Phelps, having such a fun time in this real estate market!
