Increase in Number of Elk Grove Homes for Sale

Elk Grove Homes-300x200While talking with a client yesterday in Elk Grove, the strategy for pricing came up in the conversation. The client suggested that I must have a certain way that I advise sellers to pick a price for their home. Although I sell an awful lot of homes in Elk Grove  enough to put me on the radar of companies trying to sell buyer leads to top producers — my strategy is not the same for every home. That’s one of the things that sets me apart from other Elk Grove agents.

I take into consideration the temperature of the marketplace and blend that with the seller’s goals to develop a unique home pricing and marketing strategy for that particular home. It’s also what keeps real estate so completely fascinating for me. If every real estate transaction was identical, I’d most likely not have lasted in the business all these decades.

Not to mention, the fall market in Sacramento is different than the spring market of 2013. Springtime in Sacramento was wild and crazy, coupled with limited inventory. Now, interest rates are inching toward 5% and inventory has more than doubled. The demand is still strong, especially among entry-level homes, but the strategy is different to sell. The light green columns above indicates number of homes for sale in 95624, 95757 and 95758.

Sellers can’t be as demanding as they might like. Homes need to be priced right. A seller must prepare a home for sale. She can’t leave dirty dishes in the sink, floors cluttered and expect to quickly sell. Yet, it is still a seller’s market. Just not as strong as spring.

The Elizabeth Weintraub Team has a couple more homes coming on the market in Elk Grove. Watch for these gems and act quickly if you’re looking to buy a home in Elk Grove. Our sellers don’t need two dozen offers. They simply want that one qualified buyer who loves the home. Is it you?
