More on Translation App Tricks for Real Estate

changing world of sacramento real estate for buyers

If you have been using a translation app in real estate, I have more translation app tricks to share. You may recall that I wrote a blog on this subject a while back. Yesterday, something very interesting happened, I received a call from a Chinese buyer with limited English speaking skills. While on the call, I tried to converse using the “Translate Me” app on my cell phone, but the app was not working properly. Then, quickly I used another app, “Google Translate.” It worked perfectly. Free apps, you know. Should not complain. read more

Coming Soon Listings in Elk Grove

elk grove realtor

9027 E Valley Dr, Elk Grove, CA 95624 is a Coming Soon listing on market 2/5/16.

It was a wet and gloomy day on Friday, but that did not hold back my sunny disposition as I pulled up in front of my new Coming Soon listing in Elk Grove. This home is located just down the street from another I sold at Thanksgiving, a listing that those poor sellers almost had to report their former agent to the Cal BRE to get him to release his grip. A home that many agents vehemently disagreed with us on about the price, but did sell at list price. So, there. Spittooey on those agents. I tend to pull rabbits out of hats when needed, and that’s why sellers hire this Elk Grove Realtor.

I do the impossible.

I also do the possible with great flair. In fact, I prefer the possible over the impossible, but I take them both. The possible means my job can run somewhat smoother, providing I line up everything in advance. Preplanning is my forté. That’s why I might create a Coming Soon listing. Not every agent likes, appreciates or understands Coming Soon listings, mostly buyer’s agents, I suspect. However, from a listing agent’s point of view, a Coming Soon listing draws excitement and creates an atmosphere to generate multiple offers, providing it is the right property.

Not all of the homes in Elk Grove qualify in my mind for a Coming Soon listing. Only exceptional properties, and you know the kind of home I’m talking about right? How about a darling single-level that was previously the builder’s model home? Model homes are special. They tend to feature all sorts of upgrades and extra touches that reach buyers emotionally. Matching drapes, custom wall colors, designer features such as dual framed mirrors in the baths, inlaid tile and tiffany light fixtures; not to mention plantation shutters, crown molding, vaulted ceilings, engineered wood flooring . . .

. . . and best of all, this Coming Soon listing exists in the real world today, the Hampton Oaks community of Elk Grove. No, maybe best of all is it is priced under $300,000, which makes it very affordable for a first-time home buyer.

Check it out in the link above on Zillow: 9027 E. Valley Drive, Elk Grove, CA 95624. Showings start on Friday, February 5th, and the gala open house is Sunday, February 7th. If you’re thinking about selling a home in Elk Grove, call your top producer, Elizabeth Weintraub, at 916.233.6759.
