Condition vs Location in Sacramento Real Estate

Every time I sell a home facing the freeway in Sacramento, I am amazed. It is difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that buyers tend to prefer homes that are either newer or remodeled and don't seem to pay much mind to where they are located. Suppose it's because so many people go to work, come home, drive into the garage, lock the door.

I am amazed that the sellers bought the home in the first place, and amazed another buyer wants it as well. A seller whose home backed directly to railroad tracks and within reach of high tension electrical towers said she bought it because it was brand new and so pretty. I believe her, too.

Selling Multiple Houses on the Same Street in Elk Grove

First-Time Sellers in Sacramento Have Questions
