Here's an Elk Grove Short Sale With a Creek in Back

10252 Shoech Way Elk Grove CA 95757How fast can a Sacramento short sale agent type a listing? You would not believe the volume of paperwork involved in taking a listing. In fact, some agents don't type listings; they hand write. But when one types as fast as I do, which is about 120 WPM, typing a listing is the only way to go.

I write so many month after month that I've finally got it down to a science. Why, I can prepare a listing in about 40 minutes, disclosures and all, down to the printed label on the file folder. While talking on the phone. But not while brushing my teeth or with one hand tied behind my back. I do have my limitations.

I was in the middle of preparing a listing yesterday when a buyer called. He wanted to know when he would receive an addendum, which we needed before his closing. So, I stopped what I was doing to focus on him. The listing agent had not yet replied to my request for an addendum.

I explained to the buyer that I had no idea why we had not yet received the addendum, as I had made multiple requests. Speaking as though I was addressing the listing agent, I raised my voice a little and said, "This makes me want to say, why don't you just get in your car, drive over to the seller's house and get that darned addendum signed, for crying out loud."

My buyer responded meekly, "OK, but where do I go?"

I laughed so hard I thought my sides were going to split. I don't know which I found more amusing -- that the buyer, a doctor, for even a moment thought I would speak to him in that manner, or that he was actually willing to get in his car and go to the seller's house.

Here is a new short sale in Elk Grove. This home was built in 2005. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a giant loft that is presently used as a 5th bedroom. It's basically a single story with a loft, and it has 2,667 square feet, according to the Sacramento County Assessor.

The entry features a tiled hall, offset by floor-to-ceiling columns. The living room, off to the right, is carpeted. It has a great room concept, combining the dining area, kitchen and family room with a fireplace. Upgrades include 2-inch blinds on the windows, tiled counters and ceiling fans.

Laundry is located in a separate room, and it has a 2-car attached garage. An usual feature is the back yard. There is a greenbelt and a scenic creek, which is full when it rains.

10252 Shoech Way, Elk Grove, CA 95757 is exclusively offered by Lyon Real Estate as a short sale at $245,000. For more information, call your Sacramento short sale agent Elizabeth Weintraub at 916 233 6759.

Good story.  Although the last doctor I worked with, I did talk to just that way.  He was my younger brother, so maybe I don't get full credit!  Good luck on your new listing.

Hi Elizabeth: I love doctors as clients! Most are very analytical and straight-forward so it doesn't surprise me your client would respond that way. Sometimes you have to bite your tongue! ;-) What a nice looking house - and a great deal. I have a good friend that lives in Elk Grove and it's a nice community.
