Presenting a Simply Stunning Morrison Home in Elk Grove

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006


This charming seller put her home on the market a couple years ago with an out-of-area agent because she had been planning to move out of the area. Her home did not sell, and she chose not to move out of area. This time around, the seller decided to hire a local expert Realtor. Notice that I didn't say "resident," but local expert. An agent doesn't have to live in the culdesac to be a local expert. Not if she sells homes hands-over-fist in that area.


Sometimes, and I truly believe this, sometimes when you hire a local "resident" agent, you get a jaundiced view of the neighborhood. They are often right in the thick of things that they see things differently. I noticed that kind of attitude when I sell homes in "super tight knit" communities where everybody knows everybody else. They always say, oh, you priced that home too high, and then it sells. They would not have priced it that high due to their own preconceived judgments.



Even the most experienced agents can have trouble in their own neighborhoods. I study all of my listings to determine the highest profit potential: how much a buyer will pay.


When I first viewed this home in Elk Grove, I was blown away by all of the improvements made by the seller. She took note of what buyers said 2 years ago and cranked up the volume.

Elizabeth, sounds like this Seller made an excellent choice, and agree with you on the "neighborhood expert".    Best of luck on quick offers, it is a beautiful home.

Hi Elizabeth -- that's a real "Wow" home ---- I am sure it's going to attract a lot of attention before - during and post open house.

Hi Elizabeth, it looks beautiful.  I don't think we need to "live" in an area to be a neighborhood expert- our markets might be pretty small if that was the requirement :-)  You have a ton of experience in Elk Grove and you are the neighborhood expert!
