How We Sold This Adorable Condo in the Heart of La Mesa in 8 days!

5495 Marengo Ave #8

La Mesa, CA 91942

An elderly man knew he wanted to sell his La Mesa condo so he could continue doing what he loved, traveling the world. He was seeking a cash buyer to come in and close the sale quickly.

The two-bedroom condo needed renovations, but the seller didn’t know where to begin. He approached John and Melissa Steele after seeing an online advertisement.

The Steeles reached out to their large investor network to find someone who might buy the property for cash. John and Melissa quickly found an investor partner, did a full remodel, and listed the condo on the market.

Because John and Melissa had professional before-and-after photos of the home, they were able to create a highly visual marketing campaign that showcased the substantial improvements. 

Within a week, Steele San Diego Homes received three full-price offers. The condo was in escrow after only eight days on the market.
