Selling Resale Among Brand New Homes in Natomas

There were so many negatives involved with selling this resale home in Natomas, but that was OK. I look for the negatives so I can figure out how to overcome those drawbacks. A Sacramento Realtor can't just sell the benefits. We need to smooth over those negatives. Some homes have more positive attributes than negative. With this home it was more evenly balanced.

The main problem was the fact this home was about a year old and the builder was still building new homes. Why would a buyer choose a used home over a brand new home for the same price? Well, I found a reason. You can read more in my personal blog today about this story at New Natomas Homes vs Resale Homes by Same Builder.

Selling a Short Sale is All About Picking the Right Buyer
It's not just because it's a seller's market in Sacramento that we can be selective about which buyer is allowed to buy a short sale. For one thing, we don't have very many short sales anymore. It's really unusual to run into a listing that is a… more
