Adorable, two-story Roseville and newer home. When you arrive at the home, there’s a nice curb appeal to the home. And the area is full of life and activity. Inside the home, it feels fresh, open, bright, and inviting.
So I’m guessing, you might be considering some brand new homes if you’re looking here … well, why look further? Right here – this home was built in 2012, so at just two years young, this home is like-new, plus the yard is ready to go.
Are you looking for an adorable and newer home with upgrades? If you’re targeting a new home, but would love all items already ready-to-go, and in place – put this home on your radar for consideration. Inside, this home features a great room concept with built-in entertainment center, as well as a spacious kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, hot water circulator, and a grand island with breakfast bar. Extras to make note of: there is a first floor bedroom (a must for many), an upstairs bonus loft, AND you have the landscaping already in place so you can enjoy your… yard immediately, this Spring and Summer and be proud of the space you’re entertaining in … Attractive backyard pergola has two fans overhead, to keep you cool, plus this backyard offers plenty of green grass to enjoy, and has a nice size, side yard, with a paved area to the left of the home.
With the elevated position, you look to the back neighbor and all you see is a roof top, something we immediately noticed, and you’ll probably notice too.
If you have any questions about this property, you can call/email/text us – or have your agent contact us. 916-308-2446 The sellers have loved living here.

All of these are in matching color schemes to blend seamlessly to the home’s decor and paint. Don’t forget to check out the cute water fountain. Backyard is accessible from both sides of the home.

What is mortgage insurance and what are your options?
Definition from Wikipedia: Mortgage Insurance (also known as mortgage guarantee and home-loan insurance) is an insurance policy which compensates lenders or investors for losses due to the default of a mortgage loan. Mortgage insurance can be either public or private depending upon the insurer. The policy is also known as a mortgage indemnity guarantee (MIG)
With the info overload in new real estate and numbers that are presented to buyers, it’s no wonder why there’s confusion regarding mortgage insurance. There are many misconceptions about mortgage insurance, so we asked Ryan Nordby of Princeton Capital – Roseville, CA – to go into a deeper discussion about the three flavors of mortgage insurance. In some cases if your credit score is high enough, the “one-time” buyout might be a better solution instead of putting 20% down on your next home.
Here is the example that Ryan uses: For a $400,000 Purchase 10% down is $40,000. The MI buyout for a client with 760 credit is 1.27 Points. ($360,000 Loan * .0127 = $4,572) vs. $40,000 more down.
Currently, since FHA financing has changed so much, we are seeing much more conventional loans. In the past, it seemed like anything with less than 10% down was FHA. Once FHA changed their mortgage insurance to being attached to the loan for the life of the loan, we are now seeing primarily conventional loan offers on our listings. Many of them are with as little as 5% down. It is important to go over all scenarios with your lender to know what is the right fit for your current situation, and also for planning down the road and your economic success.
To speak to Ryan directly, and get a specialized quote specific to you, give Ryan a call or send him an email.

Hello, I’m Heather Ostrom, a REALTOR with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Roseville, CA.
I originally wrote this post back in 2013. Wowza, does time fly fast. So updates to this post (2015): for three years consecutively, I have had the amazing privilege of being on the Coldwell Banker International Social Squad. And now in 2016, I have been asked again to participate in the social squad, but lets keep this as my happy 2015 post.
A lot has changed since even 2013, including our waist lines.
For New York, Hollywood, and now Chicago #GenBlue – I have had the opportunity to continue to be a brand ambassador in the social media waters and as a positive figure for our company, Coldwell Banker. It’s a great honor, and not something I take lightly, along with our clients and business.
Last year I even had the privilege of going on stage with Jane Lynch, to say I had an amazing time, would be an understatement. We work hard, but we also like to be fun to work with (particularly since this tends to be one of the more stressful points in your life, buying and selling a home). We take pride in our experience and personal touch to do all we can, both in education, and making the experience more enjoyable.
So what why do we attend the Gen Blue experience, year-after-year? See below – all that changes is, that it only gets better each year. Evolving with tried and true ways of working, mixed with the new expectations of consumers, and ways to work smarter and not harder.
How Has Attending the #GenBlue Conference Improved Us?
#GenBlue is the Coldwell Banker Annual International Conference. For the past three years, Steve and I both have attended the conferences. Gen Blue offers classes for self-improvement and inspiration to improve anyone who is part of the Coldwell Banker brand – both for elevating our online and offline skills.
Attending these Coldwell Banker #GenBlue conferences has changed Steve and I in so many positive ways in relationships, work habits and tools, and personal improvement. I have met so many talented individuals across the country who have forever changed me – sharing tips and also putting me in touch with solutions that I may not have found on my own.
Talk / writing is cheap, without proof, right? You’re probably saying, “Hey Heather, give me direct evidence for improved behaviors and some feedback on the conference.” Fair enough (bare with me as I talk about myself in third person). 😉
First and foremost, videos. I learned what techniques to improve our videos. “Slow pans” … dynamic backgrounds, changing your setting for videos, while realizing the importance of “audio.” I learned from other agents their own person tricks in video editing.
Online tools – Stephanie Hahn was an amazing past speaker at Gen Blue. She fueled me to explore Google Tools more and how insanely amazing all the options are …. I now use the G-Cal and attachments like an online ninja and my clients love it.
Matthew Ferrara, Philosopher – A CB speaker staple and never ceases to be awesome. I learned about online and offline behaviors and how he conducts his business (he’s fantastic). Not to mention, Matthew was part of one of the most epic moments of conference history witnessed – Ferrara vs. Mike Ferry in 2011. Steve O and I STILL talk about this event.
I also learned and got to know Debra Trappen and Linda Aaron better and learned all of their SwissArmyKnife tricks for better interaction online and improved visuals online. Such happy energy and the crowd dialogue was intoxicating with the Q&A that was initiated.
The main stage speakers – inspiration for the soul and mind. Always a “wow” factor every year of someone from outside of real estate and also some of the best in our business.
Finally, and definitely not least – the final party is ALWAYS amazing. Sure, it may sound immature to rank a party amongst the reasons, but I definitely made new friends from dancing and going around introducing myself to new agents. I also have earned quite a few referrals because people remembered me. How awesome is that?
Direct from the Source: I learned how to better use the amazing tool of CB Exchange (formerly CBWorks) – the undiscovered gem of educational videos, logos, and templates. Also some of the nerdiest of nerds (written with the highest affection), that told us how to leverage the free info to do our market updates.
Online and Offline Agent Improvements
Whether you’re a broker, manager, marketing bossy pants, or an agent in the field … the Conference is not just about online items – it’s about the entire package of being a real estate agent in the current age.
Year-after-year, Coldwell Banker continues to set-up a FRESH and NEW schedule for their agents and brokers, BUT also in the education straight from the agent’s mouth. I gain so much from the Q and A’s that happen from the audience, as well as the agent panels, and speakers. Interactions are always dynamic and passionate.
Steve O and I have always thought of Coldwell Banker to be the best. I’m proud to be #GenBlue. So if You’re Coming to the Conference, I’m very tall (6ft) and I love orange – please come up and say “hi” and I look forward to meeting and sharing with you! I’m proud to be #GenBlue
