After several weeks of multiple high-energy property tours and submitting several "above asking" offers on other units in this extremely competitive market, only to be out-bid, I am happy to have assisted my client in finally landing his first home in the Sierra at Jack London Square.
Patience was key in snapping up this near-perfect condition REO, 8th-floor loft with panoramic views of the Oakland Estuary and Hills, downtown San Francisco, and even across the Bay to the Costal Mountain Range of the Peninsula. The unit is a spacious 950 square foot, one-bedroom, with dark-stained hardwood flooring, large full bath, in-unit stackable laundry, stainless/Corian kitchen, single-car garage parking, and a garage storage locker. The building features a 24-hour doorman, a fully equipped gym, heated lap pool and sauna. It's also walking distance to the Lake Merritt BART and the popular Jack London District restaurant scene.
Purchasing a foreclosure can be a daunting task, and oftentimes the experience can feel unfair with of the lack of control when dealing with banks and asset managers. Persistence pays off in the end.
