You know how some homes exude a warm energy when you walk in the door? I realize this sounds a bit touchie-feelie, but there is an energy that most of us can feel. It's falls into the 3-second rule of what a buyer thinks and feels at first blush. Most homes either welcome you or repel or they have no energy at all. And buyers generally know within the first 3 seconds of walking into a home whether they are likely to want it.
This East Sacramento home has it all for a first-time home buyer. Including a warm vibe. Yes, it doesn't show as well as it possibly can with all of the seller's personal belongings in the home, but you can see through that, right? No? Well, try!! You can roll up the carpeting and probably find the same beautiful hardwood floors that show in the hall and bedroom closets. The carpeting is fairly old so those floors are most likely pristine.
If you don't want to do updates right away, you don't have to. That's the beauty of this home. It's actually ready for occupancy. And it's definitely priced right for our Sacramento market at $495K. You can see more photographs and read more about this home in my personal blog today at this link: Affordable and New East Sacramento Listing at 5200 J Street.
