Sellers who take the time to provide other people with a rating recommendation is always so appreciated. Our team did a great job of selling this condo in just 30 days after another real estate company had failed to do so in 120 days.

“I had listed my condo with a different company and it stayed on the market for four long months. I was getting showings but no offers. I was depressed and desperate. I found JaCi and listed my condo with her. Within a month she found the perfect buyer and within another month we closed escrow. I wished I have listed with JaCi from the very beginning. Highly recommended.”

Sacramento Labor Day 2019

Sacramento Labor Day 2019

Sacramento Labor Day 2019 is a day to celebrate the workers in America. This photo is a great representation of a variety of workers who might have Monday off.  If the photo included  a Sacramento Realtor with a set of keys, that could be fun, LOL.  Labor Day is a legally observed holiday in the US.

I guess the difference is we Realtors work on Monday as there are no paid holidays off in real estate. Today is a great day for Realtors to work as the banks, mortgage companies and title companies are closed on paid holidays. This means we can focus today on updating all our files, and speaking to clients will be more relaxed as the phones will be a little quieter today. read more

If you are shopping for a condo, you might be wondering whether the Midtown condo market is ripe for picking. Is there a particular segment where I could get a great buy? It just so happens I know where to shop, and I should as I’m a Sacramento real estate agent.

When an agents works full-time in real estate, she gets a close-up view of the market. More so than many other agents.

New Listing Woodside Oaks Alicante Villas One Bedroom Condo

alicante villas one bedroom condo

What can I say about the Woodside Oaks complex or an Alicante Villas one bedroom condo that I haven’t said before? I’ve sold a few other condos in this complex, which is probably why sellers keep calling me to sell their condos. I really like the Woodside Oaks condos. They are set up as two fourplex units connected by a bridge and set of stairs. This particular cluster is second to last at the very end of the complex, next to Sierra. But not right on Sierra.

In fact, this Alicante Villas one bedroom condo is on the inside of the cluster, in the second building and toward the back. So it’s pretty quiet. The unit is also a one-story, which many buyers find extremely desirable. In addition, it is a first-floor unit, which only adds to the desirability.

If you need more reasons to buy an Alicante Villas one bedroom condo, how about the fact the seller just installed brand new bamboo flooring throughout. The new bamboo these days is so strong, interwoven and glued. You can whack it with a hammer and it’s difficult to dent. Plus, I’ve heard it rumored (in Hawaii mostly) that termites do not like the glue in the bamboo. Is it true? Dunno.

In the living room is a fireplace with a travertine surround, right next to the sliding doors leading to the enclosed patio. Isn’t this a cute layout and very functional? Check out the kitchen. We have granite counters, well maintained cabinets with glass doors in the upper cabinets over the sink. All of the stainless appliances stay, including the refrigerator. There is also a formal dining space off the kitchen.

The master bedroom shown here features mirrored closet doors, and there is an extra closet in the master bath. Plus, there is a third really deep closet in the hall. So, plenty of storage. Another nice feature of the bedroom is the fact it is the farthest away from the front door. You probably would not hear anybody going up the stairs.

In short, the unit is fresh, clean and spotless, ready for occupancy. It’s got everything you need. So turnkey. Just walk in with a sofa, bed and luggage and you’re in business.

The Story of Closing Woodside Oaks Condo in Sacramento

Woodside Oaks condoSometime last April the seller of a Woodside Oaks condo in Sacramento called to say he read my blog about closing the last Woodside Oaks condo in Alicante Villas. He asked me to come over and check out his condo for a pre-inspection appointment. That way I could tell him what he needed to do to get it ready for the market. Coincidinky, the seller had already read a bunch of my blogs, looked up my production online so he knew how many sales I do every year. My four decades of experience in real estate impressed him. He wanted to hire me.

I love working with sellers who know exactly whom they wish to hire. You betcha.

He wasn’t sure when he would be ready to list, but that’s OK. I went over to do my agent visual inspection. I wasn’t prepared for the super bright wall colors and suggested he repaint them a more neutral color. It’s surprising, I think, how many people make the mistake of thinking the buyer will be excited to paint the walls. Buyers do not want to paint. Sellers often say things like, “Then the buyer can paint the walls any color they want!”

This seller didn’t say that, btw. He was smarter than that. A millennial.

There was a great dining space off the kitchen but the ceiling fan was very dated, and there was no dining room table. Ha, they probably use TV trays like my husband and I do and watch TV, LOL. Probably not. They are probably more civilized and actually go out for dinner. Hang out with friends. Millennials don’t watch a lot of television. But that doesn’t mean the space could not use a dining room table. Can’t leave it to a buyer’s imagination. Gotta show.

Lots of time went by. I didn’t hear back from the seller until early January, when I was in Hawaii. It’s OK, I sell a lot of Sacramento real estate from Hawaii, and at least I had already seen this particular property. Which is more than I can say about some of my listings that I sell. One of my team members attached a lockbox. Gave me a thumbs up on the painting and new ceiling fan. I sent over a photographer, uploaded the docs and photos, and we went on the market January 12th.

We held an open house on January 15th and received an offer. The offer was not list price, it was $5,000 lower. The earnest money deposit was fairly low as well. I suggested the seller counter the buyer to raise the offer to list price. Yes, we were higher than the last sale, and I didn’t know if it would appraise, but I had a gut feeling about it. Sure enough, the buyer grabbed that counter offer, increased her earnest money and we went into escrow. It appraised.

We closed escrow on this Woodside Oaks condo without any repairs or credits on Valentine’s Day at $235,000. You might think that’s a low price point for the amount of work performed by a top Sacramento listing agent. However, nothing is too much work. My sellers get the same due diligence from me and expert advice regardless of price. And now this Woodside Oaks condo closing has led to another listing in that complex. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
