Open House Sunday
Getting ready for an open house is very important to how successful it would be. This blog was written by Elizabeth Weintraub for another publication. This is as relevant today as it was when written.

When I take a new listing, I try to give sellers a week or two to get ready for an open house. This article outlines steps a seller can take at least a week in advance, then 72 hours before and, finally, the night before an open house. I want everything to be picture perfect.
June open houses on Sundays can be a bit quieter the weekend before the Fourth of July. Our team holds several open houses on Sundays and today was no exception. Opens were steady in Land Park, Rancho Cordova, Rosemont, Sacramento and Gold River. All were attended with 4-7 visitors except Gold River, this community had well over 35 people through. Buckeye Court was very popular today.
Sundays are often the best days to meet new people and sell real estate. June open houses are always worth the preparation. Our sellers appreciate our efforts as it only takes 1 person to buy a property. An escrow is always entirely possible. So many agents were away today as the visitors told us their agents were out of town today. Our team was right here in Sacramento working away.
The best day to search for Sacramento open houses is to look online each Friday. Both buyers and Realtors look for advertised open houses on Friday, to be ready for the weekend Saturday and Sunday opens. A great idea on Friday is to plan your tour in advance, so you can see all the open houses each day. Pre-planning will save you time and you can enjoy lunch at your favorite restaurant. Of course, if you don’t plan ahead and prefer to drive around and look for open houses, which is always an option.
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.
A multiple offer recipe for a new listing is much like following along in a cookbook. You need a few ingredients or the recipe will turn out half-baked. Plan out your new recipe thoughtfully and with intention.
First, you need a desirable location. Second, the property has to have key features such as a spectacular lot. Add onto that, 4 bedrooms and a single story. How about throw in a brand new high-end kitchen? New Plush Carpet, upgraded pad, and wood floors are just the cherries on top. How about a culdesac? Cool off in your own Tahoe blue, built-in pool. So the above are all the features on my new Sacramento real estate listing located at 9901 Silverod Place, Sacramento, Ca. 95829.
