Just a quick post to share a fun real estate moment from last week. I attended the demolishing of the First Value Inn in Rancho Cordova. This dilapidated motel was a sincere eyesore for the community, so it’s great to have it torn down to make room for a parking lot for the Los Rios College District. If you didn’t know, a college campus is scheduled to come to Folsom Blvd just west of Mather Field Road in the next two years. Anyway, while attending the event I was elated to get to inflict some damage on the building with a sledgehammer. This definitely made last week’s highlight reel for me. It’s the small things, right?
Also, here is a fast motion video I put together to help show the demo. I thought it would be fun and more interesting to speed up the video to essentially show six minutes of film in about one minute. Watch below (or here).
I always enjoy seeing progress in Sacramento area communities. Change happens one step at a time. Or in this case, one building at a time.
Question: What changes have you seen in your community lately? I’d love to hear about any building demos or rehabs.
