A Home for Security-Conscious Buyers in Rancho Cordova is Offered as a Short Sale

3437 Nouveau Way, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670There are days I suspect I'd be better off if I did not answer my phone. I know I'd get more work done instead of pacing the floor as I speak. I can't just sit in my chair and talk. I don't know why.

I must be mobile and moving. It helps me to focus. Or, maybe it's just my passion for Sacramento short sales coupled with the injustice I see in banking corporate systems -- the way they treat their customers -- that causes the need for constant movement when talking.

Beats banging my head back and forth in the doorway.

But I also get my share of odd calls. An agent called yesterday about a pending short sale transaction. She and her buyer had completed a final walk-through. She called me because the door between the garage and the house was unlocked. I asked her to leave it unlocked because that's how the seller gains access. He doesn't have a key. Like many sellers.

This agent was very concerned and upset. She demanded that the seller get a key or otherwise resolve the "dangerous" situation. Hey, he's been leaving that door unlocked for 6 months. I had to remind her that this is not the buyer's home. It belongs to the seller. The seller makes the rules. The rule is the door stays unlocked. Seller's home. Seller's insurance policy. Seller calls the shots.

If you're a security-conscious buyer, though, you will love this new short sale listing in Rancho Cordova. It is nestled in a row of homes that sit vertical to the main street. It's a few doors down from the road, which means it has a shared road. But it's tucked away off the main drag and sheltered between two other homes.

Welcome to the Alexander Collection in Rancho Cordova. I've sold several other homes in this subdivison recently. Many are foreclosures or short sales available at bargain prices, slashed from their original price tags. It's an excellent time to buy in Rancho Cordova.

This home is just shy of 2,000 square feet. It's a two-story with a balcony off the second-floor master suite. The front of the home features half-timbering and a stone entrance. Very pretty curb appeal. In case you're wondering, the door is locked between the house and the garage.

You've got 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Enter into the living room, with an outside corner fireplace and a formal dining area. There is also a large breakfast nook in the kitchen. Tumbled stone ceramic counters, an island with a sink, ceramic floor and stainless appliances in the kitchen as well. The kitchen is open to the family room.

3437 Nouveau Way, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670, is offered exclusively by Lyon Real Estate as a short sale at $210,000. For more information, call your Sacramento short sale agent, Elizabeth Weintraub, at 916 233 6759. For a private showing, call Barbara Dow, at 916 761 7398.
