The Sacramento Trendgraphix Report for November 2019 includes Sacramento County single-family homes. No other criteria are included so that we can get a broad understanding of what is happening. If you want to get updates for a specific area, even down to a ZIP code or multiple ZIP codes, or multi-family properties or land, sign up for Sacramento Home Sale Reports by ZIP Code.
The following blog was written entirely by our team member, Josh Amolsch. It is an excellent overview of the November market. This data is published a month behind to ensure all the information is available. We are so proud to have Josh as a member of our team. He works very hard to provide information to his buyers so they are educated about the hyper-local target market when they make offers. — JaCi Wallace
Often, buyers ask home sellers for personal property such as washers and dryers, refrigerators, lawn equipment, you name it. I have had several issues with personal property in 2019. So much so that I now suggest the buyers just do a bill of sale for $1. When things go wrong take a wild guess who has to fix it much of the time?
I had a seller who had said from the start to leave the fridge as it was an odd size. We put it in the listing agreement. His daughter had packed up the house and the movers took the refrigerator. We always write in the contract that any personal property is left in as-is condition with no warranty, expressed or implied. Of course, the buyers forget all this. The seller could not get to the stored refrigerator and it was packed away in storage for a month. The sellers agreed to pay a sum of money to the buyers to make them stop calling. The sellers decided they needed the refrigerator after all.
“This is the reason to be a top listing agent in Sacramento,” was written by Elizabeth over a decade ago. An excerpt from the original publication was copied below, in italics. It had me thinking about what I could add to this interesting conversation.
A fellow real estate agent in Sacramento once told me that she prefers to work with first-time home buyers because they are more grateful than sellers. She said they were totally thrilled to be handed the keys at closing, more so than those who are handing over the keys. They didn’t complain. They didn’t nag her about why isn’t their home selling. I guess she moved up a notch or two in their eyes. And that approach works for her.
Happy Saturday Sacramento. Real Estate has been extremely busy this October, with 2 new listings this week and many more offers. Even so, we encountered a price reduction for one listing and still held many open houses. We are seeing multiple offers and rural real estate take center stage. It has been a productive Saturday and all of our phones are ringing off the hook, although, not literally, because we have no hooks on which to drop our phones these days.
Our team wishes you a happy Saturday, Sacramento. We hope you will all be out touring open houses tomorrow. An upcoming blog will show the September statistics, so stay tuned.
Is October the time to sell Sacramento homes? It is good weather, and historically a good time as there is less competition and buyers are out looking before the holidays. So is October the time to sell Sacramento homes? Yes, it sure is for Sacramento. We have six offers on one listing and two offers on another. Many of our other listings are having solid showings.
