elk grove listing agent
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.
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.
The seller of this beautiful home in Laguna Creek called me to list his home while I am on my wor-cation in Hawaii. I assured him that I would sell his home within 30 days, which is his utmost desire. I also explained that just because I do not have a physical presence in Sacramento at the moment does not mean we cannot sell his home. I’m not sure what happened with his previous Elk Grove Realtor, but it’s a different experience with me.
We talked in the morning and by noon my team member was on his doorstep to talk about why he should thank his lucky stars that Elizabeth Weintraub will be selling his home. I called him shortly after my team member left. My photographer can be over in two hours, and you’ll be on the market the following morning, I assured him. It happens this way because I make it happen.
It is probably annoying, that Realtor sign in the yard after closing. After all, the sign is all about the listing company and listing agent, which often has little bearing on the new home buyer. If we did a ton of dual agency transactions in which we directly represented the buyer as well (which we don’t), I imagine the new buyers might not get so irritated over the Realtor sign in the yard because there would be some kind of identification with it. They would feel an association. Immediately after closing, though, buyers want to remove that Realtor sign. It’s their home now and no longer for sale.
