homes for sale in natomas
Some homes, like this gorgeous remodel in south Natomas for sale, simply blow you away. One look is all it will probably take for a buyer to fall in love. The seller has impeccable taste and she personally selected the improvements. Sleek, clean lines. Modern and contemporary. Very European, as well. Not a part of the place was overlooked. Not a door knob, not a faucet, nor a light fixture, it all blends and works seamlessly together. You certainly cannot tell this home was built in 1979.
You know how you see some remodels, and the sellers cut corners or remodeled everything except, say, the master bath. When they do remodels like that, it seems like they don’t care. The sellers rationalize it to themselves and say it gives the buyer the opportunity to finish the project, but buyers do not want to finish projects. Buyers want the work already done for them. It looks like they gave up when they don’t finish.
When I interviewed with the sellers to sell their Hamptons Village home, they had already talked with a bunch of other Natomas Realtors. I don’t know how I got into this on the tail end of the situation, but I knew when I walked out I had the listing. Other agents generally do not sell real estate the way I do it. Further, they don’t have my four decades of experience. As one guy put it to me yesterday, he wasn’t even born when I started to sell real estate, and he’s 44.
The seller of this beautifully remodeled home in Hamptons Village hoped I would fall in love with his design and selection of materials. He was correct. Absolutely right. It blew me away when I walked in the door, so I know it will have the same affect on a home buyer. His choice of color and mix of subtle hues of gray with brilliant white is simply gorgeous.
It’s not just the open floor plan that will entice buyers. It’s the shades of gray in all the right places. It’s the gray wood floors on the main level. Maybe the waterproof vinyl plank floors in the updated baths. Or, maybe it’s the fabulous kitchen I wish I had now in my own house.
Sellers sometimes ask: Elizabeth, how is it you know Natomas real estate so well when you live in Land Park? Partly I suppose they don’t realize that top producers sell all over the county and in neighboring counties. Not everybody realizes that an agent can be a neighborhood specialist without living on the street. It’s the professional knowledge and length of time in the business, not the location of the agent, that matters.
Besides, I’ve become intimately familiar with Natomas real estate during the downturn in Sacramento and all of the short sales in those neighborhoods. You can name a street, and I’ve probably sold a house in Natomas on it or near it. That’s why I was very excited when the seller of my new Natomas listing called. I explained that I’m still selling homes in Natomas even though I am on my wor-cation in Hawaii. I don’t have to be there in person to make the magic happen.
This Natomas Realtor loves the Beazer-built homes in the Riverdale HOA in Sacramento, and so will you. Most of these homes were built from 2006 to 2008, so they are much newer than other parts of Natomas. Not only are they newer, but they are more affordable, with prices ranging in the $220,000 to $270,000 range, depending on square footage, amenities, location and condition. The Riverdale HOA clubhouse is shown above. When I was there shooting photos, I noticed the HOA has just drained the pool.
