Updated Home in Tallac Village is Artist Retreat

home in Tallac village

5861 Brandon Way is a home in Tallac Village for sale.

If you’ve ever made a list of all the things that were important to you in a home in Tallac Village, I’m betting this brand new, super hot listing fulfills those wants and needs. It just came on the market but mere hours ago. This home is fresh and exciting. The sellers just finished installing those deep and stamped concrete counters they’ve been putting off since they bought the home 4 years ago.

First they opened a wall and created a super large great room with a brick fireplace, combining a family room space with a living room space, leaving the kitchen open at both ends, and installed wood-like planked flooring. Then they hired an artist friend to create a stamped concrete entry sporting a multi-faceted 8-pointed star. There is a new stainless steel apron sink in the kitchen, along with a new electric cooktop, and the refrigerator can stay as well. The kitchen boasts a large breakfast nook, too. read more

Best Tip for Winning the Offer in Today’s Sacramento Housing Market

winning the offer

Winning the offer to buy a home in Sacramento does not need to be overly complicated.

When I see buyers winning the offer in today’s housing market in Sacramento, it’s generally because they have done one simple thing. And I often share this one simple thing with their buyer’s agent when they call to ask if I have any offers. It’s as though they don’t want to write an offer until I do have an offer. Every buyer’s agent pretty much is trying to get “a deal” for their buyers when they should be worried about getting their buyer into escrow, period. It’s hard right now to buy a home in Sacramento. Don’t make it any harder than it needs to be. read more

New Sacramento Listing Priced Right and Under $230K

new listing in sacramento

6707 Blue Duck Way, Sacramento, CA 95842 is offered at $229,900 by Elizabeth Weintraub, Lyon RE.

My new Sacramento listing is a beautiful, move-in ready home at an affordable price. You don’t see too many homes in this price range that are updated like this, so all you fussy buyers pay attention. This home features a remodeled kitchen with newer cabinets, granite counters and mostly stainless appliances, except for the refrigerator, which is white. You’ll also find plenty of recessed lighting throughout the house.

Another astonishing feature is the open floor plan in a home that was built in 1977. All the walls are gone that separated the living room and dining room from the kitchen. It’s almost like a loft space. Not to mention, that open floor plan makes this new Sacramento listing seem like it’s a much larger house than it is, and the wood-like flooring lends an old-feel. read more

Where Can You Buy Below Sacramento’s Median Housing Price?

sacramento's median housing price

Do not get discouraged that choices are limited below Sacramento’s median housing price.

When you see Sacramento’s median housing price rose to $317,000 for April, you might wonder what you can buy for that and where can you buy it? Some of you might question whether we’re headed for a bubble, but that’s unlikely. Our median housing price was $374,000 at the height of the market in the summer of 2005. We’re a ways from that. Plus, lending is too restrictive now and many buyers are paying cash. If you’re thinking “bubble” forget those thoughts. Can’t blame the bubble. read more

Coming Soon Listings From Sacramento and Elk Grove to Lincoln

Coming Soon Listings

Coming soon listings are no longer allowed by MetroList in Sacramento without a waiver.

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 (unless we get a waiver signed, which I see no advantage to). 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. read more
