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.

New Listings This Week in West Sacramento and Del Paso Manor

new listings

New listings this week are in West Sacramento and Del Paso Manor.

All of my new listings are following a pattern in Sacramento real estate. It seems that I list 2 or 3 homes a week, put them on the market on Friday and by the following week we are pending, generally with multiple offers. It’s been this way all year. Can’t keep anything in inventory anymore, but then I do so much of my work upfront that buyers can’t help but want to buy my new listings. Everything is turnkey and ready to go.

This week’s new listings are in West Sacramento and Del Paso Manor, two completely different types of neighborhoods and homes, except for the fact each is remodeled. The home in West Sacramento was built in 2002, features 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, and a breathtakingly beautiful back yard. I kid you not. The sellers have spent a fortune on landscaping. It features a raised deck and spa, plus a pond and waterfall.

Buying a Sacramento Home Subject to a Sunday Open House

Sunday open houses tend to attract buyers in Sacramento.

Dear Sacramento Buyer’s Agent:

Thank you for showing my listing and asking about how the seller will handle offers with a Sunday Open House on the horizon. Oh, and thank you for sharing your buyer is fully qualified through The Internet Lender. I would be remiss if I didn’t share my opinion of The Internet Lender. It doesn’t necessarily mean your buyer is qualified. We’ve all had transactions with internet lenders fall apart because the monkey, excuse me, I meant monkeyfied mortgage loan officer, did not take the time to thoroughly scrutinize the loan application.

Mid Century Home in South Land Park Estates for Sale

Home in South Land Park Estates

Yamasaki home in South Land Park Estates at 1407 Carrousel Lane, Sacramento, CA 95822

To give you an idea of the beauty of this home in South Land Park Estates: it’s the type of home that even if you weren’t thinking about selling your home and moving, you might consider buying this home. Not only is this home a mid-century home, but it was built by the modernist architect Yamasaki. This home has been in the family for decades. As such, it is simply impeccable. Very well maintained.

The neighborhood is South Land Park Estates, and the home sits about two blocks from William Land Park. It is almost kitty corner from the Sacramento Zoo, tucked away and sequestered near Capri and Sutterville. Sometimes at night, if you open the windows on a hot summer day, you might hear the distant sounds of lions roaring, the trumping of elephants and monkeys chattering in a quiet evening breeze.

Cute starter home at 8375 Holly Jill Way, Sacramento, CA 95823

Ooooo, la, la, what a cute starter home in such a nice neighborhood near Elk Grove. This is a brand new listing for sale in Sacramento, and it’s affordable. This beautiful ranch would make a great place to call home for a first-time home buyer, an investor or even for retired people who are downsizing. It’s been meticulously maintained by the seller for over 30 years.

The seller painted the walls at some point, not a mark that I could find on them. The carpets are in great shape. Even the ceilings seem perfect, no cracks or imperfections. The roof is fairly new, maybe 10 years or so. This seller has kept on top of her home maintenance, and her family has helped her as well throughout the years.
