My House - Sacramento, CA

My House

    As I was nearing my 2nd year anniversary as a pharmaceutical sales representative, I started looking at buying a house in the Sacramento area.  I found a good realtor through Costco's Realtor referral program, and he was able to show me a house that I fell in love with.  Since I was only interested in new construction, we toured the new communities in Natomas, a part of the City of Sacramento.  Natomas is a brand new area surrounded by lots of open space and city parks.  The first community that my realtor took me to was the builder I went with.  I had toured some other communities previously on my own, but none of those builders compared to Lennar.  Lennar is known for their "Everything's Included" homes.  They include the options that many builders charge you for such as 10 ft ceilings, finished and textured garage interiors, laundry room cabinet and sinks, backyard landscaping with sprinklers, prewire for security system and home theater system, ceramic tile in the kitchen, baths, and laundry, ceiling fans, colonial baseboards, and much more.  The other nice thing about Lennar is they automatically add in the key upgrades I wanted such as the maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters in the kitchen and baths, and upgraded carpet.  I was shocked to see that a lot of the other builders still put in crap like tiled counters, cheap oak cabinets, and lino flooring.

    Throughout the years, I have made some upgrades to the house.  The biggest upgrades started with the new trend of having a "smart house."  After I got the Amazon Echo, I adopted the Wink platform as my z-wave hub for controlling lights.  Since then, I have added many smart devices and web cameras throughout the house.  My personal digital assistant, "Alexa," can almost do anything for me in the house now from turning lights on and off, controlling the downstairs home theater set up, turning the thermostats up or down, or even let me know if someone is at my front door.  I can even open or close my garage door through "Alexa."  I love having a smart home!
