Looking for a Small Condo or Fixer Homes in Sacramento?
There is a big market in Sacramento for fixer homes, believe it or not. Every day it seems I receive an email from some newly formed LLC begging for listings and offering to work with me if I’ll let them know when a fixer hits the market. As though I will treat them any differently than any other buyer. They’ll find out about the listing when everybody else finds out about it, when it hits MLS.
Why they write to me, I don’t know. All new listings in Sacramento are updated within minutes on my website.
Maybe they don’t know any better, but I doubt it. I suspect it’s something more sinister than that, but maybe I give them too much credit. It’s so cute — some of the calls are from individual investors from the Bay area who probably stare at their image in a mirror all day long. They act as though they are this rare and precious commodity, a cash investor. They are often the 20th such investor that day who has called. And I’m not the only Sacramento real estate agent they are calling. They are calling all the top listing agents in Sacramento and offering to work with them. What a waste of time.
But I did list two new homes yesterday. If you are looking for a home in south Sacramento that needs a little TLC, check out this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home on almost a 1/4 acre. It features a raised fireplace with an insert in the living room, breakfast nook in the kitchen, and a giant yard with 3 outbuildings that could probably be used for storage. It needs a little paint and new flooring. 6820 Sandrock Way, Sacramento, CA 95828. Offered at $159,000, Elizabeth Weintraub, 916 233 6759, Lyon Real Estate.
I’ve also got a condo in the gated community of Amherst Place. It’s an upper floor unit with two levels, bed and bath on each, perfect for roommates. Decent shape. Indoor stacked laundry. Fireplace in living room. HOA dues are $245 a month and include a swimming pool. Offered as a short sale at $90,000, and the servicer is Green Tree; the investor is Fannie Mae, which means the price could be higher depending on the comparable sales at time of sale. 1019 Dornajo Way, #229, Sacramento, CA 95825. Offered at $90,000, Elizabeth Weintraub, 916 233 6759, Lyon Real Estate.
See, I don’t always list the high end stuff. Sometimes, I sell the fixers, and that’s OK. Just don’t call and beg me to work with you. You can just write an offer, like anybody else.
