A buyer’s agent asked this Sacramento Realtor the million-dollar question yesterday. She wanted to know where are the property lines for a home in Sacramento. Yes, just go ahead and ask your seller, the agent requested. Well, I will advise the seller not to answer that kind of question. Even if he thinks he knows the answer to where are the property lines, he should not discuss it. Because he could be wrong. Little puts a person more at risk than being absolutely certain where the property lines are located.
If you’re looking for a weekend getaway to San Jose from Sacramento, there are reasons you may enjoy the travel to San Jose over San Francisco. For starters, there is no I-80 traffic to fight. A drive to San Francisco can take 90 minutes or 5 hours; you just don’t know. When returning from Europe once, when all we wanted to do was slink into the limo and sleep, it indeed took us 5 hours to get home from the airport. Early afternoon on Thursday, too.
We elected to drive from Sacramento for our weekend getaway to San Jose because it is less time and easier than taking the Amtrak Capitol Corridor train. Straight down I-5 to I-580.

There are subtle changes in the July 2018 Sacramento housing report from Trendgraphix this month. It re-enforces what I see from my professional practice. Since May, I have noticed a slight change in Sacramento real estate. A bit of cooling from the extreme frenzy, and I’ve discovered there are some strategies that no longer work very well, so I’ve been shifting my approaches accordingly.
In looking through the statistics, what jumps out at me is the big uptick in inventory. However, pending sale numbers are surpassing closed sales for last month, which means August should be a good month for closed sales. Also, although the inventory is up, the new listings are down. Yet the average price per square foot is the highest it has been over the past 15 months, coming in at $237. Our median price is about the same in the July 2018 Sacramento housing report.
Calling all investors who are looking to flip a probate home in the Sacramento area. As a probate home, this sale is strictly AS IS and there are no concessions. May the best offer win.
You do not find very many opportunities right out of the gate to flip homes in MLS. Especially not houses under $200,000. Market for those types of listings is very slim. Just did a quick search in MLS for homes for sale under $200,000 in Sacramento County and we have a grand total of 45.
If you can look past the aqua color and the doggie smell inside, you will probably say it’s mostly cosmetic stuff. I can see an investor getting rid of the popcorn ceilings, tearing up the flooring, updating the kitchen and bath, installing new light fixtures and painting.
