Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: May 2017

New Listing is an Updated Vintage Home in Curtis Park

 

The best way to buy a home when you're also selling a home in Sacramento is to own two homes at the same time for a while. This way, you are not trying to buy with a contingency to sell, which is fairly difficult in our multiple-offer situations. Generally the offer without a contingency to sell will win, regardless of price, which is why this home in Curtis Park is now for sale.

 

The sellers invested time removing the carpeting from two bedrooms and the hall on the first floor to install and match the hardwood in the rest of the home. You absolutely cannot tell the difference between the new hardwood and the existing hardwood, those installers did such a fabulous job. You can read more and see a bunch of photographs in my personal blog today at this link: Your Curtis Park Realtors Present Classic 1924 Bungalow.
