I probably have a reputation among the black critters with white stripes as that crazy agent in Land Park. But see, I figure if confronted enough times by a screaming lunatic they might stay out of my yard. And in case you're thinking that's what happened to my neighbor's roses, I don't think skunks can climb a stalk of thorns, but who knows.
If I spot skunks in the yard, I'm gonna run after 'em yelling my lungs out. Some of those words might be four-letter words, too. I don't care what skunks think. Although, my neighbors probably clasp hands over their children's ears, now that I pause. What, the hey, it's the same tenacity I use as a Sacramento short sale agent. It's why sellers hire me.
Here is a unique home in Orangevale offered as a short sale. Just four short years ago, the sellers paid over $300,000 for this 3-bedroom, 2-bath home. The two things that make it unique are no carpeting anywhere in this home, plus, it has an open floor plan, which are both unusual for a home built in 1974.
You'll most likely be singing Midnight at the Oasis, put your camels to bed, if you buy this home. It is situated alongside a sort of creek / drainage ditch; it's a corner lot, with a school down the street and a grassy lawn across the street. Only a neighbor on one side.
The entry sports a newer door with stained glass and transoms. Its entry floor is tiled and raised. The rest of the home, however, is completely one level. There is a stone fireplace in the living room and a stone knee wall at the entry. A large cut-out in the wall lets you see through to the dining area.
Most of the flooring throughout is an oak-colored, Pergo-like laminate, which very closely resembles a real oak floor, but the bathrooms and hall are tile. Carpet-free is an excellent type of flooring if you have pets or allergies.
The master features a large wall of mirrored closets and exterior access to the back yard. You will find a covered patio in the back and a spacious yard.
