Starter Homes and Move-up Homes for Sale in Elk Grove
The homes in my listing inventory for Sacramento that seem to generate the highest number of phone calls from buyers and buyer’s agents are homes in Elk Grove. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are starter homes for sale in Elk Grove or move-up homes. As a top listing agent in Elk Grove, I sell an unusually high number of homes in Elk Grove in the ZIP Codes 95624, 95757 and 95758. These homes are similar to the types of homes one might find the other direction from downtown in our Natomas communities or homes in West Sacramento in that they are newer construction, mostly stucco with tile roofs, and many young families gravitate toward these neighborhoods.
But then many of the homes for sale in Elk Grove are a hot commodity this spring. At the moment, we have 288 homes for sale in our 3 ZIPs in Elk Grove. MLS also shows 241 homes pending, with 191 sold within the last 30 days. You can do the math. There are not enough homes for sale in Elk Grove to meet demand.
If you are looking for homes for sale in Elk Grove, two exceptional homes recently became available, which you should take a look at if you’re in that market. Each fits a specific need. One is a starter home for a first-time home buyer or an investor and the second home is a luxury move-up home. Our first brand new listing is located at 7029 Verdure Way, Elk Grove, CA 95758. This is near Bruceville and Seasons. I keep wanting to call that street Four Seasons after the luxury resort. Or, as some people say it’s a reason to live in Sacramento because we have seasons here.
This is a 3-bedroom home with 3 baths and an open floor plan. The ceilings soar above the second floor, which makes it seem much bigger than its 1,410 square feet. Your entertainment area is the entire first floor, with open spaces between the living room and dining room and kitchen. Sliding doors lead to the back yard, with planting options available around the perimeter to make the yard your own. It’s affordable and competitively priced at $259,000. Ready for occupancy. Newer roof and HVAC, too.
The second home is located east of Highway 99, off Elk Grove Boulevard and Black Swan. If you’re looking for more bells and whistles and twice the square footage, this second home at $395,000 might be perfect for you. Boasting more than 2,800 square feet, it offers 5 bedrooms (two on the first floor, including a gigantic master suite) and three more bedrooms on the second floor. More interior square footage could be added by closing off the open space on the second floor, but most buyers will think it’s large enough just the way it was built. It’s beautiful, and it could be yours.
Come see 9468 Mainline Drive, Elk Grove, CA 95624 on Sunday when it is open from 2 PM to 4 PM. Both homes are offered for sale exclusively by Lyon Real Estate; for a private showing or more information, please call your Elk Grove agent, Elizabeth Weintraub, at 916.233.6759.
