Sacramento homes for sale
Many years ago — when I used to work with more home buyers than I do now, as most of my business nowadays is representing sellers as a listing agent — I recall a first-time buyer, let’s call her Cathy, who did not know when she should write an offer to buy a home in Sacramento. We had spent all day together, chasing around Rosemont looking at homes for sale. There was one home in particular that she gravitated toward, a home without carpeting, mostly hardwood flooring, with a huge back yard, priced right, and it fit all of her needs.
Team Weintraub is kicking butt and taking names this month. We always do well in Sacramento real estate, but it’s refreshing and even more exciting to excel in a market that is tougher than nails at the moment. It’s super hard to buy a home in Sacramento during a seller’s market. Especially when we have so many buyers vying for the same listings. But the Elizabeth Weintraub Team seems to possess the knack, the expertise and, honestly, just the good fortune, I suspect, to be winning multiple-offer situations.
This beautiful ranch pool home in Cameron Park is located just off Fairway near the Cameron Park Country Club. This could be your lucky day as we all know how few homes are on the market at the moment, and if you’ve been waiting for a pool home with all the bells and whistles such as a remodeled kitchen and updated baths, this could very well be your dream home.
The first thing you notice when you pull up to the home, apart from the additional parking spaces carved out near the street for guests and the majestic tree in front, is the solar panels on the roof. The home is electric, except for the propane that serves the gas cooktop in the kitchen, so the solar panels save a tremendous amount on the sellers’ utility bill. They are owned and not leased.
There is no better market for sellers of homes in Land Park than a seller’s real estate market. That’s because the beautiful homes in Land Park will sell for far more than they could ever fetch in a normal market, and even the ugly homes look much prettier after a few drinks at the midnight bar of Sacramento real estate. Everybody is happy, dancing in the streets, except for the home buyers. Some buyers hoping to purchase their first home in Land Park keep losing out due to the competition and low inventory.
There are Sacramento Realtors who would not dream of using a Coming Soon marketing strategy on homes for sale in Sacramento, and then there are Realtors like me who think this is the greatest thing since the legalization of gay marriage. Coming Soon marketing works very well in markets of limited inventory. It probably won’t get the results a listing agent wants in a market that is saturated because let’s face it, if you can buy that perfect pair of red shoes in any store at any mall, they aren’t all that special anymore.
