Surprises selling Sacramento acreage in south county is a learning experience for many. Sometimes escrows open and close and no surprises, not because there aren’t any, but because sometimes people may not look deep enough. In real estate looking almost always turns up something. The thing is there is almost always more to learn about a property to help the clients to not have unpleasant news later. Uncover all issues before you close escrow, not after.
When you go to the Sacramento county website and look at a land parcel there is a classification called unapproved parcel. When this shows up with a blue dot, call a surveyor. Then order a chain of title guarantee from a title company pulling all the deeds back to 1965. This will inform all if the original lot split was completed correctly.
Do you love farm life in Sacramento County? This time of year the fields remind this Sacramento Realtor of the green hills of Wales. I remember the sheep on the hillsides from a vacation there and the color of green was almost fluorescent.
Some people don’t know this about me, but I live in the rural south county area of Sacramento. The land and the trees here are so beautiful. There is nothing as pretty as the fruitless cherry trees in full pink blossom, all the way down my long driveway. There is a gorgeous canopy of large oak trees on the other side of the driveway, by the flowing creek. The brown fence blends into the landscape and feels so natural. Plus, my long driveway offers so much privacy.
