Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: June 2018

Entry Level Home in Upper Land Park Now Sold

This morning a seller emailed to share her thoughts about the CMA I sent to her. This is the comparative market analysis, reflecting market conditions and suggesting a listed price. The seller felt the price was $100,000 too low, and said she really needs that extra $100K to move out-of-state, even though she recognizes and acknowledges that achieving a higher price is impossible.

She implied that I could somehow magically create this extra pile of money for her. Like giving her 3 wishes and she only wants to use one lousy wish, gosh darn it. Well, I do try to stick it out until the end. Even when the sale is challenging, like this home that backed to the roaring sound of the freeway, Interstate 5.

One buyer who was very interested was blind. I made the funny but horribly insensitive remark -- and immediately apologized after saying it but I couldn't help myself -- which was too bad they weren't deaf. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Story of Closing a Home in Upper Land Park.
