Two of my favorite clients owned a home with a Yard Crashers backyard. They were out shopping at one of the many great home supply warehouse stores we have in Placer and Sacramento County. While looking at lawn mowers to help them tackle the back yard that was full of clay mud and weeds, and that's about all, they were approached by several people including one carrying a BIG video camera.
It turned out the people were part of the Yard Crashers TV show and they wanted to totally revamp my clients' home in the Cherry Glen Theiles Manor neighborhood. My clients said “YES!” The show was made. And they were thrilled. A few years later, their family had outgrown their home and it was time to move to a bigger house allowing another sweet family to move into the lovely home with the delightful back yard. Now new family memories are being created in two homes. Sweet joys!
OTHER YARD CRASHERS AND OTHER TV SHOW RENOVATIONS IN SACRAMENTO AREA
BUT I am still getting phone calls from other people interested in owning a home with a Yard Crashers back yard. One of the interesting things I discovered while marketing this particular home was that it was NOT an uncommon thing to find homes in this area with a Yard Crashers back yard. Apparently, the Yard Crashers TV crew (along with a myriad of other TV and movie makers) likes our great area of Placer and Sacramento County. Who can blame them, of course. We have great weather year round, terrific people, and a wide variety of lovely homes of all shapes, sizes, ages, etc.
Out of curiosity, I went to our Sacramento Metrolist MLS search site and looked for other properties that had been featured on the Yard Crashers show in Placer or Sacramento County. JUST in the last 6 months, I found 13 properties. Most have been sold, one is currently available, and another is pending but they are accepting backups. Not only that, but I found two other homes (both sold) that were featured on another show, Bath Crashers. WOW! Isn't that a fun and interesting collection of info. 🙂
MLS IS BIG HELP IN TRACKING DOWN YARD OR BATH CRASHERS OR OTHER TV HOMES
So if you've ever wanted a Yard Crashers back yard but haven't been picked to be on the show – or just never wanted to be on the show, you can still have one of those gorgeous back yards. Just CALL KAYE 657-229-KAYE and I'll be glad to set you up with a specific search for any Yard Crashers houses for sale that are listed in the MLS (dependent on the seller putting the info in the MLS, of course). As good as it is, I can't offer that specific of a search at my MLS search website but I CAN do it for you myself directly through the MLS and set it up to send you regular updates. And, of course, I can do the same for Bath Crashers or any other Crashers shows out there. For that matter, if there is any other TV show you want to check on, including Turf Wars (yup – spotted some of those) along with some HGTV shows, just let me know and I'll set it up for you. Fun times, indeed, while house hunting in Placer and Sacramento Counties. 🙂
P.S. If you live outside the Roseville / Sacramento CA area, you can check with your REALTOR to see if they also offer keyword search in their MLS (or give me a call and I'll do the checking for you 🙂 ). 657-229-KAYE
