Although I sell real estate from Lincoln to Galt, I certainly do end up selling Elk Grove homes as a large percentage of my Sacramento real estate business. Probably because that’s where so many homes for sale are located. And fortunately, for this Realtor, I have an office in Elk Grove that I can use, in addition to the office where I hang out in Midtown. This means my sellers of homes in Elk Grove actually get two large Lyon Real Estate offices working for them. Because I put a large panel sign with the number of our Elk Grove office on the property. For example, if a buyer is driving by the home and wants to see it immediately, that buyer can call the large number on the sign panel, and an Elk Grove agent can be there in a heartbeat to show them the home. That’s a nice benefit, don’t you agree?
Before I tell you about my hot new single story listing in Laguna Creek West, let me explain how I know this is a hot listing. One of the things I do is study the competition. The competition is defined as other similar homes for sale within a half mile radius of my subject property. By studying the photographs and listing data of nearby homes, I can generally accurately predict just about how long it will take to sell any given home in our Sacramento region.
As long as there are comparables. In many parts of our area, inventory remains tight and low, whereas demand seems to be constant. This means if you need to buy a home, you will probably have to pay list price and make a fast decision. However, making a fast decision is easy with this hot new listing in Laguna Creek West.
My husband suggested we stop at Kona Brewing after I closed a sale in Elk Grove to “drink all of their beers.” That whim sounded like an excellent idea to me, and I’m all in for celebrating, unwinding and acting on the spur of the moment while in Hawaii. I’ve closed 3 sales in the past week since we’ve been in Kona, so it’s been a good week. On top of which, we bought a few more things for our house in Hawaii, and that was a bit exhausting.
For example, when I asked the guy from Aina’s Electrical, who was installing our beautiful new super quiet ceiling fan in the master, where we could go to find a couple of rugs under which geckos could hide, he suggested Amazon or eBay. What about keeping your dollars in the community? Well, says he, you could do that, too. Then he announced the fan was as good as he could do, yet it still wobbled. Hated to say this, but he needed to do better. He eventually stopped the wobbling. I knew he had it in him.
This Elk Grove ranch home is a darling home, painted a cheery yellow, and it features a red tile roof. How pretty! There is a fenced private courtyard to keep children and pets from running into the street. Although the street is a private cul-de-sac with very little cars except for 11 neighbors coming home from work. It’s located in Emerald Park subdivision, just southeast from the Elk Grove-Florin and Elk Grove Blvd. intersection. Not that far from the freeway, either, but far enough away you don’t hear the noise. It’s close to a lot of shopping and restaurants.
Dairy farms have convinced me. Much as I appreciate the countryside, I am an urban girl at heart. It’s not often that I get out to the country. Living in Sacramento, the country is actually very close at hand. There are lots of places you can drive to from downtown Sacramento and be in the country in 20 to 30 minutes. Which is where we went yesterday afternoon to bring our adopted cat Horatio back to the Sisters Animal Sanctuary on Fogg Road. We drove past a bunch of dairy farms. I’ve never seen so many cows that close up. I asked my husband to stop the car so I could shoot a photo, which you see above.
