Classic Land Park Tudor Homes

classic land park tudor homes

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. read more

Looking for a Sacramento Probate Property?

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. read more

Leaving Money on the Table When You Sell Your Home.

leaving money on the table

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. read more

Reasons to Check for Utilities in Vacant Homes For Sale

check for utilities in vacant homes for sale

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. read more

Sloughhouse Rd is a Stunning Place in Elk Grove

Sloughhouse Rd has a stunning Lake located in Elk Grove

This is a very special place where everyone that visits says 8109 Sloughhouse Rd is a stunning place in Elk Grove. Its history is a real-life love story. This lake is a symbol of that love. This short story below was told to me by someone who was there and knew these people well but I have not verified it.

There was a couple who were boyfriend and girlfriend for many years. She was a very bright woman who loved birds and orchids. She was a very active person, full of life. Her boyfriend was retired law enforcement whom I think must have had a heart the size of Texas. She had an accident which left her paralyzed. She sustained further injuries and had to be put on a respirator. Her boyfriend married her and they bought this ranch, 80 acres of paradise. He built her a house and created this lake. He dug out the dirt, planted the trees and plants, and he made the lake for her. It has a beautiful footbridge, a walking path, two islands, and a huge rock waterfall. This was important as it was what she would look at each day from her brick patio outside her room. She had to have 24-hour care. read more
