When I first talked with the seller of the home on Laguna Woods Drive, she had in mind a very low price, way underpriced. By more than $50,000. Usually it's the other way around, you know, sellers in Elk Grove often think their home is worth a lot more than it will fetch on the open market. But sometimes I meet with sellers who truly don't realize the gold mine they control. They see everything that is wrong with the house and not enough of what is right with it.
This seller believed that because her home was across the street from a subdivision of more expensive homes that she could not command the same price. Ah, the beauty of a seller's market and 1/2 mile-radius appraisals. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Story of Closing 4909 Laguna Woods Drive in Elk Grove.
