Creating Your San Diego North County Dream Home

Today at our Prudential California Realty office meeting in La Costa, we had a speaker, Jennifer Bonasia, President of Pacific Shoreline Construction Consulting Design.  She shared a lot of good information that I think North County home buyers and sellers can all use. 

North County Buyers

When looking for a home many potential buyers love a home, but there are just a few things they would change.  Somtimes these things are stumbling blocks to finding that dream home.  Many times buyers over estimate the cost of what desired changes might cost.  A solution would be to schedule an appointment with Pacific Shoreline at the home being considered.  Pacific Shoreline will then come up with an free estimate of what it would cost to change things about the North County property.  The buyer, having all the facts, can mak e an informed decision as to whether to buy the home in question.

North County Sellers

Many times there are just a few things that a home needs to make a listing more sellable.  Again, the sellers may over estimate what it would cost.  A home that looks good sells for more money.  Why not get someone like Pacific Shoreline to give you a free quote on what needed changes would cost.  Then you, the seller, can make an informed decision.
