Story of Closing at 4909 Laguna Woods Drive in Elk Grove

updated pool home in elk groveLast month I featured an updated pool home in Elk Grove for sale and yesterday this turnkey home on Laguna Woods Drive closed escrow at list price. Once everything comes together and the home enters MLS, activity happens fast. But it was a fairly slow beginning. For example, I started working on this listing the first week of January, in the middle of my 9-week winter vacation in Hawaii. Since then, I’ve been back to Hawaii twice. That’s how long I’ve been working on this sale. read more

New Listing: Updated Pool Home in Elk Grove Features Modern Design

updated pool home in elk grove

Need space and require an updated pool home in Elk Grove? Look no further. South of Laguna and east of Franklin sits a perfectly lovely home that is clean and ready to move into. All the work has been done for you. If you love engineered wood flooring throughout the main level, this is your home. Originally built by Presley Homes in 1996, this 2,880 square foot home, as reflected at the Sacramento County Assessor’s office, could pass for a newer home built today.

Our particular model was designed to be a 5-bedroom home with a first-floor bedroom. There is a full bath on the first floor. However, the owners did not enclose the space and instead incorporated the extra square footage into the family room, which is now enormous. It would be fairly simple to put up a wall and make that space into a full-size bedroom or office. read more

Selling a Newer Home in Elk Grove is Not Always Easy

selling a newer home in Elk Grove

Selling a newer home in Elk Grove can mean overcoming obstacles.

When an Elk Grove seller called me about selling a newer home in Elk Grove, she thought it would be a piece of cake. Apparently the seller interviewed a bunch of Elk Grove Realtors and rejected them all until she met me. She wanted to hire me because she heard I sold the house on the corner in one day at a record price. I did do that. But I simply lucked out by selling to a buyer from the Bay Area for all cash. The price I sold it at would not have appraised. No comps to support it.

I pointed this out to the seller and suggested we start the list price at the same price. It was the same square footage. Similar condition. This seller was leaving for Europe shortly but I assured her once we had an offer, she could sign the deed at title and be done with that part. Everything else could be handled via email and web. read more

Agent Told Buyer Elk Grove is Unsafe Due to Security System

Elk Grove is unsafe

Claiming Elk Grove is unsafe due to home security is absurd.

Any agent who would tell a buyer that Elk Grove is unsafe because the owner has a security system needs to have his head examined. When I hear things like that, the first thing I do is take a peek at the agent’s Cal BRE license number. If it’s a really high number, say, near or over 2 million, it means the agent has been licensed for less than a year. To be fair, new agents are not always a problem if they are supervised and trained. Those who work for small brokerages, though, sometimes are not. Only thing worse are those who think they know everything simply because they have a license. read more

Four Bedroom Home in Elk Grove for Sale at Affordable Price

four bedroom home in Elk Grove

11 Donson Court, Elk Grove, CA 95758 is for sale at $425K.

Do you need a four bedroom home in Elk Grove? How about a four bedroom with three full baths? Those are hard to come by. I sold the same model last spring, and that home was a couple doors down on Donson Court on the corner, with the same square footage at the same price as this listing. That other home did not have a fourth bedroom, it had a loft instead. And that other home was only a 2 1/2 bath. This home features more upgrades and has a nicer flow to it. Further, it is located on a court. No through traffic. read more
