Can a Realtor have a felony record? Well, there’s one way to find out; you can go to this link at the California Department of Real Estate License Lookup, also known as the DRE. You fill out a name or a license number.
When we receive an offer on a property, I always check the license number on the DRE site. I can make sure they have a license that is valid without any disciplinary issues or suspensions. If there are court records, you will find those documents attached. Then, the next step is MLS online to look up a buyer’s agent production numbers. It is important to know whether this is a newer agent and or does the agent have enough transactions completed to work without supervision.
Elk Grove real estate and the flu go forward, no matter how sick a Realtor gets, the show must go on. When your immune system is on the blink, creativity for writing has not been accessible. I apologize for missing our daily posts and will be adding some blasts from the past postings that are still relevant today.
I may have missed writing the blogs, but we have not let our clients down. We sold several listings in the greater Sacramento area this week. When you have a team, there is an arsenal of resources available. There have been many challenges with home inspections and appraisals but we kept the wheels moving forward.
The life of an Elk Grove Realtor with the flu doesn’t include sick leave. The work has to be completed. People’s lives depend on their Realtor. The laptop has helped so much as we can at least be comfortable propped up with pillows. Many people in various professions who are sick still go to work as they need their paycheck. Many people do not have sick leave. Self-employed business owners work no matter what.
At least when I’m sick and working from home, I’m not having to go into the office to make others sick. My sick leave is staying home to work. Who knows if these bugs are contagious? Rest is important, so . . . a short and sweet blog tonight. Long days this week and several offers came in today on our listings. The life of an Elk Grove Realtor is busy and rewarding, even with the flu.
Jefjen Way is a street in Elk Grove that backs to a school in Quail Ridge. This means the playground and the noise that goes along with that can be disturbing to residents who live on that side of the street. Fortunately, the last listing I took on Jefjen Way sold within 3 days with multiple offers, even in today’s softer buyer’s market.
We went on the market in early December, a time of the year when sales typically slow down. I would have preferred to list and sell the home in April, when our market was much stronger, but that did not happen. Oddly enough, I’ve been expecting to get the listing since April of 2018.
In fact, I have sold two homes on this street. Am very familiar with Jefjen, especially its proximity to Toby Johnson Middle School. The north row of homes on Jefjen back up to the school’s playground and field. However, this Quail Ridge home in Elk Grove on Jefjen is oriented at the end of Jefgen and faces a different direction, so it does not back to the school at all. It also enjoys a much larger lot than some of the other homes near it.
Jefjen runs east and west and then turns a corner perpendicular, running north and south. At the junction of these two intersections is where this home is located, and it faces west. The lot size, according to the Sacramento County Assessor’s office, which has not been verified, is .1891.
However, the interior square footage of this listing shows in Realist at 3,000 square feet. This is a huge home. The photo above is of the living room and dining area combination, looking toward the front of the home. You can also see the office with the knee wall and directly to the right is the highly sought after first-floor bedroom and full bath.
Spacious kitchen rests at the back of the home. As you can see, there is plenty of room for a breakfast table and chairs. The kitchen sports a full pantry closet, dishwasher, built-in microwave and dual ovens. It is also open to the family room, which features a fireplace and a ceiling fan.
About the only things you would probably want to do to this house before moving in is replace the flooring and paint the interior. But the price reflects those fix-up costs. You can also get a renovation loan through Dan Tharp at Guild Mortgage that rolls into a purchase money loan, which can close within 30 days. No extra stuff to close.
All together, this home has 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and an office. Look at this covered patio. Can’t you imagine entertaining, relaxing at a table under the ceiling fan while enjoying a lazy afternoon lunch? There is so much to love about this home. It is also a SMART home. Connect to the heating and cooling systems, or the timer for the water softener, the sprinklers, hot water recirculation pump, all from the comfort of your cellphone.
The shed in this photograph was custom built. It is insulated, with electricity and Direct TV. Such a perfect mancave / workshop.
