Our buyer wanted a home where she could start to build a life with her soon to be family. Newly engaged with a new job, she was looking for a home to start her new life. After exploring more expensive neighborhoods, we discovered this property in a neighborhood squarely within Sacramento’s redevelopment curve. The property was newly renovated, but lacked some cosmetic finishing touches. Our agent seized upon this opportunity to negotiate a final sales price below the list price in a highly competitive market. Our buyer moved into a property with a brand new kitchen, HVAC system, and bathrooms while avoiding a bidding war currently common in the Sacramento. By strategically expanding the search parameters, we were able to close on a property that has significant upside now as primary residence, but also has the promise to be a great rental property in the future. We feel lucky to be a part of such a great transaction.
