Planning to sell a home that one of my buyers may like?

It's mid-February in Sacramento. And, like our seasonal real estate cycles typically predict, it is that wonderful time of the year when home buyers really get motivated to buy, and sellers start to prep their homes for sale...the perfect storm when buyers are ready to go, but there is not quite yet an abundance of housing inventory on the market for buyers to choose from. Which brings me to today's you have a home that you would like to sell that my buyers would like to buy? I am working with some really well-qualified (pre-approved!), amazing people...

Buyer A
Seeking a home in the Arden / Arcade, Carmichael, or Fair Oaks areas. In a perfect world, the property would have 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1600sf or larger, a built-in pool, AND an Accessory Dwelling Unit for a multi-generational situation. An ADU is also commonly referred to as a "granny flat", "in-law unit", or "studio". A home with room to add an ADU may also work, or they are also willing to retrofit some existing space to create an ADU. They are pre-approved up to $500,000.

Buyer B
Seeking a home in the Tahoe Park, Tallac Village, Hollywood Park, or surrounding areas. Ideally the property would be a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home of 900sf or larger, be pretty turn-key and not need a lot of work, but this buyer would happily do some minor repairs, replace flooring and paint if need be. This buyer is pre-approved up to $335,000.

Buyer C
Seeking a home in the East Sacramento, Land Park, or Midtown Sacramento areas. They would prefer something with architectural character that is walkable. They are down-sizing and a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home of 1200sf+ would be great. A second bathroom would be a bonus. Ideally the home has an open layout where the kitchen is open to the living area. A garage is a must, and they'd also love a basement too but that is not required. They are pre-approved up to $600,000.

Buyer D
Seeking a home in the South Land Park, Pocket / Greenhaven, or Little Pocket areas. They would love a 4 bedroom home, but are also fine with a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home of at least 1200sf. A half-plex would also be ok too. The house must have a decent-sized yard for their soon-to-be adopted dog. They are pre-approved up to $350,000.

Buyer E
Seeking a newer home (2014 or newer, but not new construction) in Roseville or Rocklin areas at least 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and 2000sf+, and with a good-sized yard (aka, larger than just a patio). They are doing a tax-deferred 1031 Exchange and are all cash buyers. By the rules of their exchange, they need to spend a minimum of $500,000 and a max of $550,000.

So anyway, if you own a home something like what I have described here and are thinking about selling it, drop me a line at or 916-342-1372! My buyers would love to hear about it. And if it is not a great fit for one of them, I can help you prep your home for sale and list your home as well.
