Sacramento Home Buyers Get a Second Chance

The skies in Sacramento are mostly smoke and haze from all of the wildfires. Similar in some ways to the overcast skies and bad air quality that happens in Kona from the volcano erupting on the other side of the island. Tradewinds bring the vog over Kona, but it doesn't happen every day. Not like in Sacramento this summer.

Makes it hard for home buyers to venture outside to look at homes, too. But now, if a buyer missed the chance to buy this starter home near downtown Sacramento, that opportunity is here again.

You know, I often tell buyers that if you're lamenting missing the chance to buy a certain house, you can always write a backup offer. Then, if the present buyer flakes out, you will be in first position. You don't have to compete. But do they? No, they don't like to write an offer because it's too much work to take a chance. Huh? You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Second Chance to Buy Vintage 1927 Bungalow by Southside Park.

Buying a Home Without First Listing in Land Park Sacramento

Perfect Starter Home in Upper Land Park
In some ways, this home in Upper Land Park reminds me of my first home in Minneapolis. Although my first home was about half this size. This home in Sacramento is much bigger. But it excudes much of the same charm and homeyness. Is homeyness a word… more
