1210 40th Street East Sac Fab 40's

Here is the next project in East Sac's Fab 40's for my investor clients:

This spring will bring a great transformation to this wonderful older home in the Fab 40's.
This home was originally built in 1928 with two bedrooms and one bathroom in almost 2000 square feet. It will be updated into a stunning five bedroom, four and a half bathroom home with just over 3200 square feet.
The interior living space will be extended with a charming front porch, a back yard patio and a master suite balcony. The new landscaping will make the outdoor living spaces as welcoming as the amazing interior. The true master chef kitchen over-looks the open family room, perfect for entertaining your family and friends in style.

American River Trail First Ride of the Year!

We took our five wheeled tandem recumbent bike out for the first ride of the year. Last year we didn't get in very much ridding and maybe we should have started out with a lighter ride, but Cheryl was inspired and I didn't resist. We cranked out 30 miles today on the American River Bike Trail.

The first 13 we felt great and strong. At mile 15 we had a lunch break in one of the many parks to regain our energy and then started the ride back home. Somehow, we didn't regain our energy. The ride home was a bit of a slow grind. We are both very sore now and I think tomorrow will be worse...

It was well worth it. We got to see lots of great wildlife and had a wonderful day of it. Just a couple of the great pictures we took on the trail.

To see more about the bike, go the our website for it at

Just Sold – 5418 Waterville Way Sacramento

This is a wonderful home in Natomas that just sold. My clients for this one are a young couple that went through many offers to finally get accepted on this property. We met many challenges along the way to the closing like the appraisal coming in low, the loan taking much longer than expected, the funding of the loan requiring some additional repairs and more delays, but we made it.

I was so happy to be able to deliver the gift basket and keys to this new home to my clients at work to make sure that there were no more delays in getting them into their new home!

At 1109 39th Street in East Sac they are remodeling this property that used to be a home cut up into five units. When they are done it will probably be 3100 square feet and sell for around $850,000 (larger home but across from the apartment on 39th).

New Construction in East Sac – 1633 39th Street

There have been a lot of new construction and complete remodels happening in East Sac lately. I’m going to do a series of posts on some of the ones that I know about that will be coming on the market in the next several months. Most of them are not my listings but ones where I know the builders or the listing agent. I’ll point it out when it is my listing.

First on that list is one that I expect to hit the market any day now. 1633 39th Street should be a 4,000+ square foot home priced around $1,300,000. These are the same builders that did 39th and M that I listed and sold last year.
