Are you looking for a newer home in Hampton Station for sale in south Sacramento? This popular model is more than 2,000 square feet, and was built in 2014. Some of the homes in Hampton Station are near the light rail, but this one is not. No power lines. No train tracks. Close to Edward Kemble Preschool and Edward Kemble Elementary, with Cesar Chavez Intermediate right behind those schools. Many buyers move to Hampton Station because they want a newer home and they like the schools.
A feature you are sure to love are the cherry hardwood floors throughout most of the first level. They are simply beautiful. The flooring matches the cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen. This particular layout offers so much privacy. Much of the home in Hampton Station is sheltered toward the back from any traffic in the street, which makes it very quiet.
Bradshaw Animal Hospital was not my first choice of a place to get our ragdoll kitty neutered, but I recalled the SSPCA worked closely with Bradshaw Animal Hospital during my short stint in 2003 at the SSPCA. Ha, I bet most of my regular readers do not know that I once worked briefly as the Marketing Manager at the Sacramento SPCA. At the same time that I reactivated my California real estate license. I considered it volunteer work, although to be honest, the SSPCA did pay me.
I had just moved to Sacramento, wondering what I would like to do. Nonprofit + animals = feel good purpose. But I was wrong. The culture at the SSPCA was not a good match for my personality and, besides, real estate is my first love. So, I resigned after a few months. The woman I reported to kept trying to supervise. You know, telling me what to do. Criminy. Her efforts didn’t go over so well. Too many personal agendas there.
Sometime last April the seller of a Woodside Oaks condo in Sacramento called to say he read my blog about closing the last Woodside Oaks condo in Alicante Villas. He asked me to come over and check out his condo for a pre-inspection appointment. That way I could tell him what he needed to do to get it ready for the market. Coincidinky, the seller had already read a bunch of my blogs, looked up my production online so he knew how many sales I do every year. My four decades of experience in real estate impressed him. He wanted to hire me.
Unbelievably, it’s taken more than a year for a Sacramento seller to say please do not sell my house to a Trump supporter. I’m writing this blog way in advance of my listing so you won’t know who it is since I list many homes in Sacramento. I consistently protect my seller’s identity and respect fiduciary. This is only surprising to me to the extent that it hasn’t come up before now.
I’ve had sellers allude to it but none came right out and said so. For example, a seller in Carmichael last year admitted that he specifically chose me as his listing agent over a Republican in his neighborhood who supported Trump. He also Googled the buyer to determine whether the buyer was a good fit, politically. Hey, I understand. Completely. If you oppose the evilness of Trump, you do not want to sell to a buyer who approves of the disgusting behavior unapologetically displayed by our President.
Because I was in Hawaii for two months this winter, I missed the grand opening of the Century DoCo Theater in Sacramento. This is across from Macy’s in what used to be the Downtown Plaza. Coming back to Sacramento this month meant catching up on my new listings and writing for TheBalance, so I haven’t had time for the movies. Yesterday was the first day, and a bit spontaneous. I had hoped to see The Post, but that’s no longer showing downtown. Which is OK because The Shape of Water was next on my list.
