Selling a Home in Elk Grove Over Appraised Value

elk Grove one story home

9916 Montedoro Ct, Elk Grove, CA 95757

In the middle of selling a home in Elk Grove, an agent called me to say her buyer had gone rogue by engaging in a lengthy conversation with the seller. We had 3 offers already for this home in Elk Grove, and this buyer knew it. He told the seller that he would use the extra concrete pad toward the side of the house to park his boat that he planned to buy. Oh, and he offered $31,000 over list price. This buyer is not buying a boat, I told the seller. He is giving that boat money to you.

There will be no boat in the immediate future for this particular buyer, I warned, he just doesn’t realize that little fact yet. read more

New Listing: Elk Grove One Story Home on Large Lot by Morse Park

elk Grove one story home

9916 Montedoro Ct, Elk Grove, CA 95757

This Elk Grove one story home hits all the right “must have” buyer buttons. For starters, well, it’s a one-story home, which are far more popular these days than multi-levels. It is also situated on a quiet cul-de-sac away from the main streets on a really big lot, almost .28 acres. The sellers have maximized the space in the yard, too, as there are many different places for activities. Aside from gardening beds, you’ll find a raised platform for a table and chairs, in addition to a covered patio and a separate play house or hobby room with lights. read more

Home Pricing Strategies for Selling Homes in Elk Grove

home pricing strategies

Home pricing strategies vary depending on the type of marketplace.

Because I list and sell so many homes in the Elk Grove area, I get a lot of calls from appraisers asking about home pricing strategies and what happened during our offer negotiations. It’s a good thing I am organized. I keep all of my offers and notes on each in a separate spreadsheet just for reference. There is no way I can pull this stuff out of my memory. I’m lucky if I can recall the name of the street. The calls from appraisers generally center on how to substantiate the sales value without enough comps. read more

I love this street in Laguna West and this will be my third lake view home in Laguna West that I’ll sell on this particular street, I don’t know why. It’s not like I target sellers in this area or go looking for them, but they find me because I sell a heck-ofalotta homes in Elk Grove. And I truly do love this street. It’s called Bearint. I have no idea what it means. Perhaps it’s a famous Sacramentan or sport’s guy. Yeah, that’s probably it, a sport’s guy. So, I would not know. read more
