I could not decide which to post today. A video of my cats playing with a plastic strap or a new listing east of College Greens by the American River. I'm not that good of a movie maker. Or maybe my cats aren't that good of reality TV stars. So, the listing wins out. It's not even a short sale, if you can believe that. Yup, I still list and sell regular homes for sale in Sacramento.
This is a two-bedroom, two-bath condo in Glenbrook. It's off the beaten path and toward the back of this massive complex of condominiums. You'll find 507 square feet on the first floor and another 507 square feet on the second floor.
The first floor is shaped like a U, and it's open. The living room is carpeted and wraps around to the dining area and kitchen. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a refrigerator. Behind bi-fold doors is a laundry area, complete with washer and dryer. There is also a half bath on the first floor.
Two bedrooms and another bath are upstairs. One of the bedrooms is much larger than the other, and that larger bedroom has two closets. The trade off is it's situated at the front of the condo, whereas the smaller bedroom is toward the back, which is quieter, most likely. Although, due to its location, I doubt there is a lot of traffic up and down that sidewalk. Parking is behind the unit, 2 parking spots in the carport.
The homeowner association dues are $180 a month, and there is no loan on this property. The seller paid $163,000 in cash when he bought this condo in 2003. Today, it could use new carpet and paint, and updates. It's basically a fixer. But prices have also dropped in this area by 50%.

Trust me, I don't think you would find the cat video half as entertaining as I do. Three minutes of watching cats chew on a plastic strap and hiss probably is not your idea of an amusing time.
