Rural Real Estate Pricing Is Anything But Cookie Cutter.

Rural Real Estate

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. read more

The Last Sacramento Sunday In June

Sacramento Sunday

The last Sacramento Sunday in June is fast approaching. The summer weather is upon us, and with it comes the constant need for air conditioning. The vegetable gardens are now in full swing after a slow start. A summer real estate market is bustling, and there are some excellent properties available.

This is a perfect time to list your home. The sky photographs so beautifully blue with the bright sun. The flowers are budding in brilliant colors, and the pastures have turned into fields of honey wheat. The photographs of the new listings are stunning, but then that’s another blog. A Sacramento Sunday is always busy with open houses, presenting offers, emails, phone calls and marketing. As one week closes a new one begins and there is such excitement looking forward to the possibilities of the new week. read more

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

Should a Listing Have a Pending Sale Sign?

Should a listing have a pending sale sign in the yard? It depends. We have a Sacramento listing that recently had five offers. We are pending sale and have two back up offers. One of these two buyers signed a back up addendum and a multiple counter offer form. This buyer is ready to go into a sales contract if the first offer fails for any reason. In this case, the seller wants a pending sale sign in the front yard as soon as possible. The home sold in 5 days, so sellers are thrilled and want the neighbors to know how fast it sold. read more

Do Buyers Visit Open Houses On Mothers Day?

Buyer  look for open houses

Do buyers visit open houses on Mother’s Day? Well, it is always on a Sunday and, that is the most popular day for open houses. Also, Mother’s Day is not a national holiday, though perhaps it should be. Many buyers visit or call their mothers on this day and possibly go to brunch. Driving to and from brunch provides a splendid opportunity for buyers to visit open houses on Mother’s Day.

There is less competition due to a decreased number of open houses. Therefore, Sacramento homes held open today will have a high demand and see an increased number of buyers visiting. Realtors who take the entire day off are only missing out on an opportunity to sell a home today. Buyers visit open houses on Mother’s Day for many reasons. read more
