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.
When I first visited this Gardenland listing in Sacramento, I kinda gave the seller a hard time about his home stager cousin. I asked him for the name of his company, asked whether the guy had ever been paid for home staging, drilled him about business cards, really questioned him thoroughly because I wasn’t certain his cousin would do an adequate job. I’m always a bit wary when sellers tell me they have family members who do real estate-related jobs because there are so many wannabes out there.
