sacramento home buying
Hello, Sacramento summer and temps of 95 degrees plus. The heat is upon us. Keeping animals watered and plants hydrated as well as our drinking water every hour is so important. Working outdoors in the heat today I started feeling very tired with a serious lack of energy. I realized I was dehydrated so I immediately stopped at the store and bought a couple of bottles of water and began to drink. Within 30 minutes I felt like my old self.
Sacramento is known for hot temperatures thank goodness the evenings include delta breezes. The hot temperatures did not stop open house traffic. We had 3 team open houses today and all had good traffic, over 50 groups. 95 degrees buyers are still out looking. Dedicated home shoppers will look no matter what the temperature. When we say hello Sacramento summer that means good news as this signals home-buying season.
A rocking real estate race in Sacramento felt much like I was in the thoroughbred races at Cal Expo. When you have multiple appointments out in Sacramento real estate from 9 am – 7 pm, it keeps us running. There are also hundreds of emails to work on every day. The phone calls keep coming and we triage with top priorities. In between appointments when you have a few minutes while driving, we try to get a call or two completed. With our team of professional Realtors, we have resources to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
Writing offers without viewing a home is an article that was written by Elizabeth for another publication. Believe it or not, this was written over a decade ago. This subject is as much an issue today as it was in 2007. — JaCi Wallace
“One of the services I offer my Sacramento sellers is, upon receipt of an offer, I always check MLS to find out if the buyer’s agent had accessed the lockbox. We can tell if the agent opened the box. If we have 10 offers on a home, and 9 of the agents showed it and one did not, the agent who did not show the home is at a severe disadvantage. Because we will tell the seller that her buyer has not seen the home. A buyer must see the home.
Rural real estate pricing is anything but cookie cutter. There is a wide range of pricing as the country property is mostly custom homes. There is an HOA in one rural real estate subdivision in south county, that feels like a neighborhood. Lot size can vary greatly. There is little price difference between 5-10 acres.
The size of the main home and the number of additional residences and outbuildings has an influence on the final price. Set up for animals on a property has a direct impact on buyers. There is an extensive amount of work and analysis to price properly.
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.
