Terrific Tuesday in Sacramento real estate can mean many things to many people. We closed an escrow on Boathouse in Natomas. Today on terrific Tuesday, the funds wire into our seller’s account. Also, the buyer’s agent and I both get paid today. So far, so good, lots of positive things are happening. Also, today sent out a multiple counter offer for another listing in Natomas. It is due back by the end of the day today. This seller is going to be very excited to get into a purchase contract. It is turning out to be a terrific Tuesday, but wait there is more.
Sneak peek of this Rancho Cordova home rehab in progress was surprising. The owner told me she had updated the entire house both interior and exterior except for the slab, the electrical and the plumbing inside the walls. This photo above shows the kitchen with upgraded shaker cream colored cabinets. A glass tile backsplash, with upgraded counter slabs and black appliances.
This feels like a modern but functional kitchen. A popular five burner gas stove to cook with, dishwasher and microwave, completes the appliance package. Do not miss the double stainless sinks under the kitchen window which looks onto the large backyard.
Being a Sacramento Realtor multi-tasking at extreme levels is the typical environment for a successful real estate career. Yesterday, I was made aware that this skill set is something you either possess or you don’t. Realtors are often on the phone, (I have two phones) texting, emailing and putting the phone on mute, while answering questions from an assistant. We are also checking email and voice mail while organizing. I have a 40-inch monitor screen, so I have multiple windows open at the same time on my computer.
If you are thinking about making an offer on a house, there are many aspects beyond price to consider in your offer. First of all, make sure you have hired the very best Sacramento Realtor you can find with decades of experience. An experienced Realtor is going to know the finite details and there are so many.
The price, of course, is very important. So many buyers only focus on the list price and it can be way under market or way overpriced. Our Code of Ethics suggest we do a comparative market analysis every time we write an offer. I certainly do. Not every agent specializes in listings nor have they listed hundreds properties, which makes pricing property a pure art form. So many aspects, I could write a short story just on pricing!
Most of the top agents in Sacramento tend to receive 5-star reviews, but some reviews exceed even 5-stars. Some reviews are simply coming up roses every single time.
Going on appointments is what a busy Sacramento Realtor does; however, after all is said and done, smelling like a real estate rose is no easy task at the end of each day. (This photo was taken in my rose garden.)
Talking to new people every day is the life of a listing agent. Some people will not ever turn into clients, some may take years, some things just happen in their life and they don’t list. The key to all this is to recognize that we are like the rose in this photo, vibrant, full of life, and open to all who want to linger near us.
