homes in elk grove
Last 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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
