buying homes in natomas
Much of the new Natomas homes vs resale in Sacramento are not constructed on spec today. Builders found out the hard way how quickly they can get stuck with inventory when markets shift. Today, many builders expect a commitment to buy new Natomas homes before they break ground. It is especially important to know this as a Sacramento Realtor when selling resale homes by the same builder. Because given a choice, new or used, you know which buyers would pick.
So that was my challenge when I was called upon to list and sell a resale home in Natomas that had not yet met its first year anniversary. Circumstances beyond the seller’s control led him to need to sell his dream home. He paid for many thousands of dollars of upgrades, which had now slightly depreciated. Not only that, but his home was located on a busy street, and his cul-de-sac was so narrow that you couldn’t turn around without driving into somebody else’s driveway.
