Closing Escrows In Rural Elk Grove, South County of Sacramento
Closing escrows in rural Elk Grove, the southern part of Sacramento County, is one of my favorite places for selling real estate. There are many aspects to rural sales such as there are several environmental issues to be aware of. Be aware of the utility easements for power. The fire department has access as well. There are some areas of flooding to be aware of. Lenders have federal requirements for flood insurance certificates. Of course, if you buy with cash no insurance is required, but use common sense as flooding repairs can be costly.
Freshwater wells and septic tanks can be problematic depending on age and use. There are zoning restrictions and numerous other factors such as the Williamson Act. Pricing rural real estate is anything but cookie-cutter, as these properties are not subdivisions. This is all about custom pricing and knowing an area.
There are also fencing requirements for livestock and the usability of the land. Having custom gated entrances is a big plus. Some properties have horse amenities, such as mare motels, hot walkers, covered riding arenas, round pens, feed storage, tack rooms, shavings bins and palpation chutes. Ponds and trees, too, have so much appeal to buyers.
This is a photo of 80 gorgeous acres. The barn is an old original dairy barn. When you walk through this barn, you can imagine the cows eating hay out of the mangers and mooing while being milked. You can almost imagine all the pails of fresh milk.
The photo above gives you an overview of the stunning acreage. Closing escrows in rural Elk Grove is always appreciated by the sellers. Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we will be posting some new photos of another gorgeous rural property located in Sloughhouse, California,
