homes in elk grove
This Elk Grove one story home hits all the right “must have” buyer buttons. For starters, well, it’s a one-story home, which are far more popular these days than multi-levels. It is also situated on a quiet cul-de-sac away from the main streets on a really big lot, almost .28 acres. The sellers have maximized the space in the yard, too, as there are many different places for activities. Aside from gardening beds, you’ll find a raised platform for a table and chairs, in addition to a covered patio and a separate play house or hobby room with lights.
Many Sacramento Realtors do not know we are prohibited from marketing Coming Soon listings that are in off-market status in MLS. We can’t do it. That means no signs with Coming Soon on the property, no blogs about it, no posting homes in Zillow or Facebook as Coming Soon listings. And then there are the agents who do know but don’t care. I’m not any of those agents. However, I do have Coming Soon listings from Sacramento to Lincoln that are not yet in MLS, which I bet you’d love to hear about.
Because I list and sell so many homes in the Elk Grove area, I get a lot of calls from appraisers asking about home pricing strategies and what happened during our offer negotiations. It’s a good thing I am organized. I keep all of my offers and notes on each in a separate spreadsheet just for reference. There is no way I can pull this stuff out of my memory. I’m lucky if I can recall the name of the street. The calls from appraisers generally center on how to substantiate the sales value without enough comps.
I love this street in Laguna West and this will be my third lake view home in Laguna West that I’ll sell on this particular street, I don’t know why. It’s not like I target sellers in this area or go looking for them, but they find me because I sell a heck-ofalotta homes in Elk Grove. And I truly do love this street. It’s called Bearint. I have no idea what it means. Perhaps it’s a famous Sacramentan or sport’s guy. Yeah, that’s probably it, a sport’s guy. So, I would not know.
Although this new listing, which is a Centex home in Elk Grove, was a referral to me, the sellers were interviewing a number of agents at the time they talked to me. They asked when was the latest I could shoot photos in order to be on the market on Friday. I should know by Wednesday at least, I figured. Shoot photos on Thursday, go live Friday. We talked, I gave them a few pointers and we discussed where they might move to.
Taking a listing is always a holelistic approach, sellers don’t really want to sell as much as they desire what the final outcome will bring. Plus, they can sense the desperate agents a mile away, the guys who will do anything to nab a listing and don’t much care what happens to the sellers. There aren’t many agents like that in the business, but when inventory dries up, more seem to come out of the woodwork.
