Harcourts Brokers Building Their Own Property from the Ground Up

Topics: Agent Life, Property 0

Harcourts agents are literally building homes from scratch in an area that sells for over $1,000 per square foot. Broker/Owner, Greg Babakhanian and REALTOR®, Scott Cohen, both of Harcourts Signature Properties, have developed a brand-new house in the Corona Del Mar area along with a third outside REALTOR®.

_MG_9319-2.jpg“This property was carefully built from the base slab to the last tile on the roof,” says Harcourts Broker, Greg Babakhanian. “It took us two years to build and has turned into a beautiful finished product.”

Located in the Harbor View Hills neighborhood, this property has views of Newport Beach’s Pelican Hill Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean. It rests in a family-oriented neighborhood within walking distance to Newport Village and is affectionately known as the neighborhood jewel of Harbor Hills South. According to neighbors, the location has great weather, great views, and lots to do.

“We have learned lots and had a lot of fun building this home, but what I’m most excited about is providing a fantastic home for a new family,” shares Harcourts REALTOR® Scott Cohen.

Measuring over 1,500 square feet, the room is bigger than some homes in the area themselves. This room boasts an open concept design combining the main living areas and the backyard through a wall of folding doors. The entire property extends to almost 4,000 square feet with a modern farmhouse design. It is a charming house with an exterior made of concrete allowing for temperature control and extra durability.

This property is a strong candidate for the Harcourts Non-Distressed Auctions platform and may appear there during its time on the market. It is currently listed at $3,999,000 and has already seen a lot of interest.

“We are eager to show the beautiful finishes, the flow of the home, and the fantastic energy and effort that we put into the completion of this home,” states Cohen.
