buying condos in west sacramento
Because I agreed to take a new condo listing at Riva on the River today, a day of many appointments crammed on top of each other, including our Lyon agent awards celebration tonight at the Sacramento Hyatt, my husband says it did not surprise him that I agreed to do it. He says I am a crammer of appointments. It adds a small amount of pressure to my business life, and many agents would not take on such a hectic schedule. But it’s also where I perform best.
I can’t stand to be bored and idle. It would drive me nuts. I’m just not wired that way. I am always busy and constantly multi-tasking, focused on achieving stellar quality. It doesn’t burn me out, it’s invigorating. OK, and maybe a little crazy, but it’s a system that works well for me. I am also not missing the chance to accept a new condo listing at Riva on the River. It’s one of my favorite complexes in West Sacramento.
Once the bridge over Broadway connects West Sacramento to Land Park, it will be an even more direct shot for me to drive to Riva on the River, and will take about 3 minutes instead of 10 minutes. It’s a great location for a condo complex, to be nestled so close the levee, near downtown Sacramento, yet in the middle of newer single family homes. There is no place exactly like this in West Sacramento.
The HOA dues are reasonable. Swimming pool, clubhouse, nice amenities, a little over $200 a month. Most of the units have balconies or patios, sometimes several. Attached garages. The layout is configured in such a way to maximize privacy. I recently closed a one-story condo in that complex for the highest price per-square-foot of any recent sale. This Riva on the River condo is a 3-story, the largest in the complex at 1,751 square feet. I can’t wait to see it and meet the seller.
So when the seller asked if I could squeeze her in tomorrow, between my appointments, I said all right. I just have to make it to the Hyatt by 6:30 to meet up with the Elizabeth Weintraub Team and all of the other Lyon agents I’ve worked with last year who are showing up to celebrate. I imagine Lyon will bestow some sort of top ranking producer award in my direction. You know how sometimes you dash out the door for the day and think what am I forgetting? Pants? Shoes? Car keys? Check. I hope to show up fully dressed for this event.
If not, so what, at least I have my new listing in Riva on the River to work on when I get home. You will see it most likely in MLS come Monday. Under $300K. For more details, call your West Sacramento Realtor, Elizabeth Weintraub, at 916.233.6759.
