Sacramento Condos for Sale
My first blog about this Campus Commons condo published 5 weeks ago and now this beautiful Powell condo has closed escrow. When I shared the good news yesterday with the seller, she seemed very pleased. She said, “Well, you got us list price,” and she seemed a bit astonished that it happened. Maybe because at first she had suggested a price that was $25,000 less than my suggested list price. I take into consideration how much sellers want, but it’s not generally a factor for me when determining a listing price.
Many of my clients tell me they would love to buy a Robert C. Powell Condo in Campus Commons Nepenthe HOA. This particular HOA offers a wealth of amenities and benefits to those who are lucky enough to buy a Powell condo in Campus Commons, just like this one for sale at 1102 Dunbarton Circle. Do you like to play pickleball? How about attending yoga classes at the Nepenthe clubhouse? Join a bridge team. Practice Tai Chi. You have your choice of 2 spas, 4 swimming pools and 8 tennis courts. If you get bored, which would be difficult to imagine, you can always stroll to the American River and walk along the miles of trails on the levee.
No joke, I hear this updated Astoria condo in Natomas is calling out to you. I hear it, saying psst, wouldn’t you love a secluded condo tucked away at the back of the complex with a marvelous view of the greenbelt and all of the upgrades you’ve ever wanted at an affordable price? Sure, why not. The view out the window of this condo looks like you’re living somewhere nice in Europe, in a small community where people trot by with their dogs, and the world is peaceful and quiet. It can take your mind off things.
Because Lyon Real Estate is one of the oldest and well respected real estate companies in Sacramento, we often get invited to tour new projects before the public hears much about them, including the new luxury condos in downtown Sacramento, . In fact, a woman from outside of Sacramento called a month ago, demanding to tour luxury condos in downtown Sacramento, and apart from the units at 500 N Street, we had to tell her there aren’t any. Yet. Yet being the operative word.
Well, there have been a few, but there are none for sale now. The condos at the top of the Marriott come to mind, the Penthouses at Capitol Park, but those sold out. Lots of false starts and promises on other projects, but now that we have the Golden 1 Arena, downtown Sacramento is suddenly burning red hot.
This condo for sale in Folsom is easy to find when you pull into the complex, unlike many condos in the area where you drive around in circles, and there are no signs, and nobody knows where anything is located so there is no point in asking, and you wonder how the residents find their way home at night. Nope, these condos at Altura Villas have a great layout: once you get through the gate, you hang a left (because there’s a sign) and you can easily navigate to building 16.
When I pulled up in front of building 16, some guy was unloading boxes from his car and carting them into the unit next door. I asked him where I could find #1613, and he told me it was on the other side of the complex. I looked up and noticed the unit was right in front of him, in fact, right next door. I wondered maybe he was just a delivery guy. Or maybe he just gets his kicks out of sending people on wild goose chases? Or perhaps he’s like everybody else in the universe and doesn’t quite give a hoot about anybody except himself, hard to say.
