Buildable Lot in Small Gated Community in Elk Grove

gated community in Elk Grove

9368 Kaanapali Court, Elk Grove, CA 95624 is over one acre.

This is a rare opportunity to build your dream home in a gated community in Elk Grove. Kapalua Estates is a small subdivision with only a handful of lots, and most of the owners have already built a home. There are utilities to the lot, so you’ve got sewer, electricity and gas. When I looked at the plat map, it shows 343 feet on the north side. The lot is slightly bigger than an acre at 43,569 square feet. It’s situated near Bradshaw and Bond Road, with the entrance to Kapalua from Bradshaw. read more

Agent Referral to an Elk Grove Seller Equals Dream Transaction

Mirabela at Medeira

8109 Suarez Way is located in Mirabela at Medeira in Elk Grove

This is unfortunately one of those days when I’m sitting down to focus on writing a blog about an agent referral to an Elk Grove seller, and I’ve noticed suddenly we have an abundance of tomatoes in garden. Cherry Juliet tomatoes. So naturally I have to stop what I’m doing in front of my computer and go outside to harvest. I sat back down to write this blog again when it occurred to me I have not checked the length of my cat’s toenails. Ha, you think I’m kidding. After all, I was working for 2 1/2 weeks from our vacation house in Hawaii and left my husband in charge of all-things-domestic. This is a guy who filled up the cat’s automatic water fountain with water from my back-up stationary water bowl, which resulted in two almost bone dry water bowls. read more

Hot New Single Story Listing in Laguna Creek West

listing in laguna creek west

7801 Wymark Dr, Elk Grove, CA 95758 is listed by Elizabeth Weintraub, Lyon RE.

Before I tell you about my hot new single story listing in Laguna Creek West, let me explain how I know this is a hot listing. One of the things I do is study the competition. The competition is defined as other similar homes for sale within a half mile radius of my subject property. By studying the photographs and listing data of nearby homes, I can generally accurately predict just about how long it will take to sell any given home in our Sacramento region.

As long as there are comparables. In many parts of our area, inventory remains tight and low, whereas demand seems to be constant. This means if you need to buy a home, you will probably have to pay list price and make a fast decision. However, making a fast decision is easy with this hot new listing in Laguna Creek West. read more

Stopping at Kona Brewing After Closing a Home in Elk Grove

Kona Brewing

Elizabeth Weintraub and husband Adam at Kona Brewing Co.

My husband suggested we stop at Kona Brewing after I closed a sale in Elk Grove to “drink all of their beers.” That whim sounded like an excellent idea to me, and I’m all in for celebrating, unwinding and acting on the spur of the moment while in Hawaii. I’ve closed 3 sales in the past week since we’ve been in Kona, so it’s been a good week. On top of which, we bought a few more things for our house in Hawaii, and that was a bit exhausting.

For example, when I asked the guy from Aina’s Electrical, who was installing our beautiful new super quiet ceiling fan in the master, where we could go to find a couple of rugs under which geckos could hide, he suggested Amazon or eBay. What about keeping your dollars in the community? Well, says he, you could do that, too. Then he announced the fan was as good as he could do, yet it still wobbled. Hated to say this, but he needed to do better. He eventually stopped the wobbling. I knew he had it in him. read more

The Downside to Buying Homes Near Dairy Farms in Elk Grove

dairy farms

Dairy farms in Elk Grove are scattered in the countryside.

Dairy farms have convinced me. Much as I appreciate the countryside, I am an urban girl at heart. It’s not often that I get out to the country. Living in Sacramento, the country is actually very close at hand. There are lots of places you can drive to from downtown Sacramento and be in the country in 20 to 30 minutes. Which is where we went yesterday afternoon to bring our adopted cat Horatio back to the Sisters Animal Sanctuary on Fogg Road. We drove past a bunch of dairy farms. I’ve never seen so many cows that close up. I asked my husband to stop the car so I could shoot a photo, which you see above. read more
