Custom Imperial Beach Home For Our Happy VA Buyer Clients

by Peter Brady

SoCalVaHomes.Org started working with Brian and Lisa Doudera back in May of 2012. The goal was to find their dream home in Imperial Beach San Diego. Imperial Beach is a small beach community and is the southern most town in San Diego, and it is where the Douderas currently live. They are renters and contacted us to help them get the home of their dreams. We faced some real challenges when trying to find their perfect home, because the city of Imperial Beach at any time only has 18-25 single family homes active and on the market. Contrary to popular belief, there isn’t a large volume of foreclosures just sitting out there any more, it is a highly competitive market throughout all Southern California, making it difficult to get the right property.

We scoured property daily, making offers whenever a new home would come on the market until we were able to find the perfect home for the Douderas that we got an offer accepted on. The property had the important features that they wanted, but definitely not everything. We walked through the home and created a detailed vision of exactly what they wanted, created a budget and made sure that the we thought the renovated home would appraise at with all the new amenities. We were able to complete the Doudera’s wish list and they were thrilled when they saw the finished product.  Watch the video below to see the Doudera’s reaction as they walk through their custom finished home for the first time.

In the end we were able to include all of the important features that the Douderas wanted including:

  • New Landscaping
  • New 130 Square Feet concrete patio area
  • Refinishing of the security gates
  • New front door and screen door
  • Stucco repair
  • New kitchen cabinets
  • ceiling fans and light kits installed in all of the bedrooms, dining room and living room
  • New can lights and drop ceiling in the kitchen
  • New Stainless steel appliances
  • New faucets and light fixtures
  • Their Choice of Paint Color
  • Epoxy floor sealing in the garage
  • New Wall Mounted 80″ Sharp Quattron 3D TV with Prewire for HDMI
  • And much more
Without SoCalVaHomes.org, the Douderas would have had a miserable time of trying to buy a home on their own and likely wouldn’t have been able to get exactly what they were looking for. As Brian mentioned in the video, the home was “perfect” and he “couldn’t imagine how lucky they had gotten” that SoCalVAHomes was able to create their ultimate dream home.
