El Dorado Hills, CA real estate short sales are worth a look

Since the former attribute can make purchasing one of these attractive properties seem like an unattainable goal, you might want to look at the short sales available in this area.

To be fair, short sales aren't as common here as they are in other cities and towns in the general Sacramento area. Even so, the properties of this type that are available are worth taking a look at. Low-end short sales start at $200,000 and continue to just over $350,000 - this might seem high, but compared to El Dorado Hills' $596,000 average listing price for late December, it's not particularly costly.

All of this area's short sales bear many of the characteristics that make El Dorado Hills, CA real estate so desirable - beautiful interior and exterior design, upgraded tile, granite kitchen surfaces and more. Quite a few are located in the exclusive Serrano community.
