Buyers for a home in Elk Grove always seem to go crazy for single-story homes. It's that one level living that especially appeals to parents of small children, older people with aging knees and those in wheelchairs. Every home I have ever owned in my life, except for my present homes, were multiple stories, and even I appreciate single levels. For example, my husband can sit at one end of the house to watch television at night, and I never hear a sound in the master.This new home in Elk Grove is located in Laguna Creek West. It features mostly wood-like floors throughout, newer updates and a 3-car garage.

This is a home I have listed more than once. At one point, it was a distressed sale, but later the sellers decided to simply hang in there. Then it went on the market for a personal change in circumstances that later did not happen, I don't recall exactly but it might have been relocation, so the home listing was canceled. Over this time period, I've noted how the seller's daughter grew up and is now ready for college. Life goes on for everybody else in Sacramento real estate except for the listing agent, who is focused on her job of selling the home. This time the sellers are definitely moving, though.

It was a bittersweet day yesterday as we held a marathon open house in Wildhawk West Village, which is in the Elk Grove school district. On the one hand, I am focused on my seller finding the perfect buyer for his home in that desirable school district. On the other, we had to return our adopted cat Horatio to the no-kill sanctuary in Elk Grove.They finally had an opening, in the middle of their full-blown upper respiratory breakout. That meant Horatio no longer had to reside in my husband's office, and our own cats could stop feeling stressed and confused that a door was closed and they knew a cat lurked behind it.You can read more about this story and see the photos in my personal blog today at this link: The Downside to Buying Homes Near Dairy Farms in Elk Grove.

 This charming seller put her home on the market a couple years ago with an out-of-area agent because she had been planning to move out of the area. Her home did not sell, and she chose not to move out of area. This time around, the seller decided to hire a local expert Realtor. Notice that I didn't say "resident," but local expert. An agent doesn't have to live in the culdesac to be a local expert. Not if she sells homes hands-over-fist in that area. Sometimes, and I truly believe this, sometimes when you hire a local "resident" agent, you get a jaundiced view of the neighborhood. They are often right in the thick of things that they see things differently. I noticed that kind of attitude when I sell homes in "super tight knit" communities where everybody knows everybody else. They alw...

 My sellers received a free rent-back for about 3 weeks when I negotiated the sale of their home in Franklin Crossing, a newer subdivision of homes in Elk Grove. You know, I don't even know why we call that situation a "free rent-back" because that's an oxymoron.  But one thing I know for certain, the neighbors will be yakking about this sale. It will help to bring up the values in the area. You can't go wrong with a cash sale far exceeding list price.

What school will my kids go to??If you have children, or are going to be having them in the future, where you purchase your home will determine which school district and school your kids will go to.  You might not even give it a second thought at this point in your life, but priorities have a way of changing whether we like it or not!  Luckily, in Elk Grove, our school district is highly rated, and pretty much any school your children end up in is going to be good.  BUT, it is still something to take in to consideration when buying a home in Elk Grove. Realtor Nikki Chapman from The Mode & Durahm Team at Keller Williams Realty in Elk Grove talks more about this  See Schools in my zip code, This one is set up for Elk Grove 95624, but you can enter any zip code.  When you visit our home s...

 Franklin Crossing in Elk Grove is a newer subdivision of homes, typically built between 2011 and 2015. This cluster of newer homes is just south and a hair west of one of my favorite subdivsions in Elk Grove, near Bilby and Willard Parkways. If you are taking I-5 south from Sacramento, it's about a 20-minute drive from downtown, and you'd get off the freeway at the Hood-Franklin exit. It's a short commute past farmlands and old estates, which probably won't exist much longer. There is also a cemetery, but I imagine they'd have to leave that in the path of new construction. Some things you just don't mess with. Long-term residents' homelands though seem to be up for grabs by developers, and many people in Elk Grove are unhappy about that, which is understandable. Remember, Elk Grove was...
