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.
The Wildhawk neighborhood is one of Sacramento’s best kept secrets. It is located between Calvine and Gerber and West of Vineyard. Homes are built in the early 2000s to present, but the high demand homes are those with 5 bedrooms and plenty of square footage. Many families move to the Wildhawk neighborhood for the Elk Grove schools. Nearby, there is Arnold Adreani Elementary School on Wildhawk West Drive but also Katherine L. Albiani Middle School on Bradshaw in Elk Grove and Pleasant Grove High School on Bond in Elk Grove.
My whole team is excited to present this new listing in the Mirabela at Medeira subdivision built by Taylor Morrison in Elk Grove. It’s south of Elk Grove Blvd and West of Big Horn, close to several parks: Horseshoe Park and Constellation Park. This home is simply incredible. It’s the type of home that you wish the seller would leave all of her furniture, wall hangings and accessories, because it’s decorated so beautifully. The decor is modern, yet inviting with clean lines, soothing colors and all of the furnishings are so well coordinated.
All it takes is that one highest sale to close in Franklin Crossing and a new comparable sale comes into play, setting a new benchmark. This is not to construe that one comp an appraisal makes, because that’s not how it works, but it does have a major affect on other sales in the same subdivision. It becomes a measuring stick. I just closed yesterday a sale that went into escrow on June 27th. It was contingent but the buyer’s pervious home was only a week away to closing. Although the offer was contingent, it also made the offer all-cash after the exiting home closed. No financing. Which meant no appraisal.
Although, the Bilby / Willard Parkway area in Elk Grove is one of the hottest neighborhoods in 95757, I’d like to introduce you to something even newer, a home in Franklin Crossing for sale. Unlike the other homes nearby that were built during the boom years of 2003 to 2005, this home in Franklin Crossing was built in 2014. That makes it three years new.
When you think about major components having a life span of 15 to 20 years, it means buying a home that was built in 2003 could need repairs shortly, but that’s unlikely with a 3-year-new home. You’ve got a long ways to go before you’ll have to think about replacing the HVAC or buying a new range.
