new listings sacramento
Real Estate boarded up and for sale can happen anywhere. I was looking at two new listings today in the Oak Park area. There are several nice streets that have updated homes. I saw people walking dogs and taking strolls about the neighborhood. Many people enjoy living in Oak Park. This is clearly a neighborhood that has grown in popularity over the years.
Some investors have bought properties in the area as rentals. There is such a shortage of good rentals and the need for more affordable housing is a factor in many cities. Like many big cities, in Sacramento and across the US, there are some open lots where people are camped out.
Classic Land Park Tudor homes are unlike any other — in my book, anyway. The charm and original touches take you back in time. Today, I was working in Land Park on a new listing by the Tower Theater. Carol Crestelo, one of our exclusive buyers’ agents, was accompanying me as we had a lot of work in the area.
While driving along the tree-lined streets, we noticed an open house sign. It was an old friend from a previous brokerage, holding open a fabulous classic Land Park Tudor home. We stopped to say hello of course, after all, we are Realtors, we love looking at homes too, lol. This property did not disappoint; it was amazing. The front yard was massive, with a huge redwood tree and mature landscape. The pitched roof in the front was impressive.
Looking for a Sacramento Probate property is often like looking for a needle in a haystack. It just so happens we have a Probate listing coming on market June first. The listing price range is in the lower three hundred thousand. It has two separate living units. These are smaller homes but, where can you buy anything with two rentals on one parcel in Sacramento? Well, look no further than Zip code 95817.
There will be a coming soon sign on the Sacramento Probate property within a few days. For more information call, Weintraub & Wallace. It’s currently occupied; however, proper notice of sale was provided to the tenants. They will be in the process of moving out. Access will not be available until the property goes live in MLS. There will be a lockbox installed on the property and Realtors can show it.
How can you know if you’re leaving money on the table when you sell your home? For starters, why not hire a top Sacramento Realtor with hundreds of positive testimonials, so you don’t leave money on the table! When you see a team with more than a thousand sales and hundreds of 5 star reviews, you can take away that it wasn’t luck. Skill is how you continue to grow your business after decades of experience. You update and evolve with the times.
Realtors who have a strong web presence and stay relevant in the use of technology tools and marketing do not simply price a listing low and throw it on MLS, like some might think. When we listed homes for sale, say, in the early 1980s, a For Sale sign was the marketing, on top of door knocking. There was a blue book with property lisings. Buyers often walked into a real estate office and talked to an agent on “floor duty.” Very rarely do buyers walk into real estate offices today to look for property. Buyers look on the internet today and, guess what? No internet available in 1980. We have come a long way baby, LOL.
Working for decades in selling Sacramento real estate, I learned the hard way early on to check for utilities in vacant homes for sale. I took a new listing in Natomas this week. I sent an agent from our Weintraub & Wallace team to do a security check on the home. I’m scheduling vendors this week, such as a pest inspector, gardener, and the house cleaners. Vendors, of course, need lights working and electricity for the power tools. Power and water in good working order are mission critical on the listing preparation checklist.
