Carmichael Listing Agent
Here is a new Carmichael listing on Hillgrove Way, which is a classic 1956 ranch-style home. This property is located in a fabulous established area on a quaint dead-end street off of Fair Oaks Blvd. You will love that the lot sits up a hill on a large one quarter-acre lot, and the tree-lined street gives the feeling of a park-like custom area with mature trees.
The exterior has brick and vinyl siding for a timeless appeal with low maintenance. The off-street parking has room for 6 vehicles and measures 41 feet to accommodate an RV or boat. There is an additional 40 x 10 RV space behind the fence, so an 81-foot length in all.
Big surprise yesterday when we received 5 top awards from Homelight for 2018. Pictured here is Amy McMullan with Elizabeth Weintraub, and we sure miss Amy (who has since moved to Los Angeles). Homelight is a website company that refers sellers and buyers to agents in Sacramento, and they work only with top producers.
All agents are not the same. Clients are wising up to the fact that 90% of agents sell only 2 or 3 homes a year. Not us, of course.
Further, in the digital age, many websites compete for eyeballs on the internet, and those with the best SEO are winning. The Elizabeth Weintraub Team prefers to align ourselves with winners, so we stick with the companies our clients like. However, we were not expecting to win 5 top awards from Homelight. One is plenty, actually.
Do you wonder if you deserve your own representation and where you can find listing specialists in Sacramento? Most agents who solely represent sellers are always ready to talk about selling a home, providing you can find such an agent. There are not very many listing specialists in Sacramento. For example, I can count the number on one hand, and I’m not so sure about the other four. I can only vouch for myself.
Most agents, if you don’t already know, try to work with both sellers and buyers. They probably don’t attract enough business to specialize. Some of those agents might call themselves listing specialists but they are not, not truly. I know this to be a fact because my outlook and business focus is so completely different from agents who represent both types, sellers and buyers, and even those who only represent buyers.
These successor trustee sellers did not know which agent to hire but they knew they wanted an experienced Sacramento Realtor. So, they went to a referral service that refers top producers in exchange for a piece of the action from the agent. This particular company sends seller’s information to a bunch of top producers and they let the agents fight it out to get the business.
As a top listing agent in Sacramento, I charge more than just about any other agent, because I’ve never lowered my commission from 40 years ago. It’s been the same amount. However, I am also confident I am worth the standard commission rate and so are my clients. They know better than to shop for an agent based on commission. We all charge about the same anyway; and they wanted the very best.
Finally, the pool home in Shelfield Estates I’ve been working on is ready for the market. We just went “live” in MLS last night around midnight. Such a tremendous property, and I’m very excited, thrilled actually, that the sellers chose me to market this home. It is a successor trustee sale, as many of my listings seem to be lately. My hope is a buyer will love the home as much as I do. It’s so much easier for a listing agent to market properties when the agent feels passionate about the home as well!
What makes this home unique, apart from the fabulous price for this neighborhood, is the fact it’s a Mid Century home with many original features. Of course, we know some buyers will rip all of that out, but others love the purity of the style. It’s a single-level, with parquet floors off a ceramic entry.
This Carmichael pool home in Shelfield Estates is superbly oriented in a wonderful location, nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac. Shelfield Estates is a sought-after neighborhood in Carmichael, made up of mostly larger sprawling estates with many trees.
The formal living room above features built-in shelves and a rock fireplace. Across the entry way, you can view the separate formal dining room with grass cloth walls.
Look at this beautiful all-white kitchen. I suspect somewhere along the line the cabinets were upgraded or recovered, and some of the appliances are somewhat newer. Wow, a double oven! It features an open floor plan with a family room / kitchen combo, sort of a great room concept.
Will you want to remodel the kitchen at some point? Most likely, knowing tastes today and, if you do, you can budget for that remodel when you buy this house. With a Guild Mortgage renovation loan, you can roll your remodeling monies into one purchase-money mortgage, easy-peasy and it can close in 30 days.
The family room has wood walls that the only way I think to describe them is hammered. As though a combination of hammer and wood chipper made those walls. Do you like the beam ceiling, Roman brick fireplace, not to mention the beautiful view outside of the pool? There is also a wonderful view of the pool from the enormous master suite.
Check out the gorgeous back yard of this Carmichael pool home in Shelfield Estates. So private, too! The yard is almost 1/3 of an acre, and the square footage, according to the Sacramento County Assessor is 2,342.
You will find four bedrooms and 3 baths, a great layout. Other homes in this neighborhood are selling over $750K, but this home has been discounted to allow for the improvements a buyer may wish to make. Remember the adage in real estate: location, location, location! You can remodel a kitchen or bath but you can’t change location.
Don’t take my word for it. Come see for yourself at our open house on Sunday, December 2, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Or, check out the virtual tour.
