Honorable Mentions

The homes listed below are homes that we considered to still be very good deals, but just fell short of making the Best Buys list.  We wouldn’t be surprised if they sold quickly because the one or two elements that caused us not to include a property might be less relevant from buyer to buyer, depending on personal preferences.

135 n lomita ave ojai$445,000 – 135 N. Lomita Avenue

This is a cute 1 bedroom/1 bathroom, 704 sq. ft. home that feels larger than the square footage would suggest.  The kitchen doesn’t appear to have been updated, but it’s just fine as it sits without feeling dated.  The bathroom has been updated with a newer sink/vanity and toilet.  You’ll also find a brick fireplace and beamed ceilings in the cozy living room, as well as wood flooring in the kitchen/dining area.  Most of the yard space is located in front of the house (the yard is on the small side), but it’s nicely coiffed and is fenced for privacy.  This home has been nicely maintained.

$859,000 – 1122 Paseo Del Robles Court

This is a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom, 2,613 sq. ft. home with a pool and partial mountain views.  The home is bright inside and features a great floor plan, as well as an updated kitchen and bathroom (not all the bathrooms have been updated).  We really liked the back patio/pool area, where the owners did a nice job of creating a fanciful environment with the foliage, fruit trees and hardscape.

710 Mercer Avenue – $865,000

This is a gorgeous 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home (with an additional room/office space), featuring mountain views in a great neighborhood.  Everything’s been updated; floors, kitchen, bathrooms – you name it. The back yard is a paradise in itself, with a stamped concrete patio, a grotto-like pool and waterfall, and a cozy bbq/kitchen area under the arbor.  This one is as turn-key as it gets!
