Sacramento Real Estate and the Art of Selling a Home

This week, our guest Realtor is Gena Riede from Sacramento, California. While Gena is searching for the answers to origins of this unique sculpture in Sacramento, she has reminded me, I have not posted my May photo for the photo contest. You can look for it by day's end at Gena also reminds us homes that are in show condition and priced correctly are selling. That's a universal real estate truth.

I just love what Paula Henry, your Indianapolis Realtor® has incorporated on Home to Indy with the photo contest for all the Indianapolis readers.  This is a fun part of Indianapolis homes, neighborhoods and parks.  Brilliant, Paula!  It would be a great idea in Sacramento which is where I sell homes.
I was thinking about a sculpture in the middle of the street (below) that I have found very interesting but have never been able to find out the name, origin or reason why it was placed in such an odd spot in Downtown Sacramento. Now, after looking at this wonderful contest Paula has for her readers, I see there is a unique way I may be able to find the answer to this art work in Sacramento.
Art in Sacramento

We were hard hit by the recession in Sacramento.  What I have been seeing in the Sacramento real estate market is typical of what I am sure you see in Indianapolis real estate, a home for sale that is show quality and priced appropriately at value receives multiple offers and does not linger on the market for sale. In order for this to happen there needs to be cooperation from the home seller and the Realtor® must be experienced and have an excellent presence on the Internet. 

Paula Henry has just those qualifications which makes her my Realtor® of choice for all my Sacramento home buyers relocating to the Indianapolis area. As a Sacramento Realtor®, I’m very choosy about who I send my home buyers to.  And might I say... there are some fabulous Indianapolis homes for sale right now.

Interesting sculpture indeed. The beauty in art is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Regarding pricing and condition, I would add that, if priced correctly, even homes that don't show well sell quickly. A corollary to your point about this timeless real estate truth would be: if marketed properly, no property sells for less than it is worth.
Just my two cents.

Very interesting sculpture. Art always seems to brighten up homes.

Attractions like this one might also boost the interest of home buyers. Not all people looks at a certain property itself, some of them also search for nice scenery or good amenities. That sculptor is really eye-catching. With regards with the prices home seller should consider staging a house to a reasonable price unless they want their property not be sold on the next 5 years. Thanks for the post.
