You're Not Dreaming, Here is a Beautiful Short Sale Home in Land Park, Just For You

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

1300 8th Av, Sacramento, CA 95818If you work for the state of California in Sacramento, then you probably know that Gov. Jerry Brown is trying to cut in half the state's fleet of cars. He hopes to save $16.5 million from our budget by stopping the state from buying new cars and selling state cars that are not needed.

Naturally, as a state employee, it would make sense to buy a home in Sacramento that is close to the state capitol. Also, as a state employee, you probably are hoping to buy a home under your means, so you might be looking at short sales.

Do I have a short sale for you? You betcha. This is a short sale in Land Park. It's about 2 miles from the capitol downtown. A brisk clip would take about 30 or so minutes. I walk downtown all the time, and I live in Land Park. Many of the homes in Land Park are within walking, biking, skating, wheelchairing distance from downtown. I throw in that last little bit because I would hate to be accused of discrimination when that is not my intent. This home is also about 3 blocks from William Land Park.

This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, which is just under 2,000 square feet. It was built in 1941 and still retains much of the character from that era. The hardwood floors are beautiful and the room sizes are generous.

The first floor boasts a downstairs' bedroom, and the other two bedrooms are located on the second floor. The living room is big enough to support a piano, and the dining room is almost 200 square feet by itself. There is a breakfast nook in the kitchen and a built-in Sub Zero refrigerator.

Off the master is a balcony that overlooks 13th Street and the back yard. A nice surprise is the detached 3-car garage. It's sometimes difficult to even find a home with a garage in Land Park.

1300 8th Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95818, is offered exclusively by Lyon Real Estate as a short sale at $475,000. Call your Sacramento short sale agent and Land Park resident Elizabeth Weintraub for more information or a private showing at 916 233 6759.

Thanks, DeeDee; we had 5 or 6 showings yesterday. Heck, even I showed it, but the buyers who called me aren't quite ready to make an offer yet.

VERY NICE!  I swear Northern and Southern CA look like 2 different worlds.  It looks like that could be in another state.  Here, unless you are very far into the suburbs, for $475K you could be looking at something with a chain link fence and pit bulls next door.  Great deals and homes to be had in Northern California!

Oh and very smart to gear an article towards the state employees.
