I had just sold my friends home in Fountaingrove. They told me that they really wanted to move to Rincon Valley, and would really like a property with a pool. Pools are not that common in Sonoma County mostly because it doesn't get that hot, and there are plenty of natural lakes and rivers to swim in for free when it does get hot.
My search of the MLS turned up NO homes in Rincon Valley for sale with pools however a check of homes that had been on the market but never sold, revealed about 4 homes. I wrote letters to all four homeowners explaining out situation, and one homeowner wrote me back. After a little back and fourth communicating, we were able to reach a deal and my buyers have remained in the home ever since.
I'm not afraid to think outside the box when it comes to finding my clients homes. Some agents restrict themselves to showing properties that are actively shown on the MLS, and are not creative enough find other ways to flush out sellers.
I love living in Rincon Valley! I've lived here since 1995 and can't imagine living in a better North Bay community. Call me today if you're interested in buying a home in Rincon Valley, or if you'd like to list your Rincon Valley home for sale.
