Natomas building moratorium lifted
As expected, building will soon resume in Natomas. The Federal Emergency Management Agency told the city of Sacramento that permits can be issued starting in the middle of June, according to Capital Public Radio.
But the city can start taking applications beginning Wednesday morning.
The City Council on Tuesday approved an ordinance to start construction,according to KOVR-TV Channel 13.
The moratorium was put in place in December 2008 after FEMA found the levees in Natomas were not high enough to guard against flooding.
Under the plan to start construction back up, commercial construction would have no limitations. Residential building would be more restricted — no more than 1,000 new single-family units and 500 new multifamily units in a calendar year.

Selling your home in the Natomas Area
Setting an appropriate listing price is often times the difference between getting your property sold, and having it linger on the market, and eventually not sell. In fact, according to the National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers 2014, the median purchase price of all properties sold in the United States is within 98% of the seller’s asking price.
When it comes to wondering how much you can get for your home, the key factor is not what you paid or owe on it, but what another person will pay for your house in the current market.
If we set a listing price that is too high, we will lack in interested buyers.
If we set a listing price that is too low, we will short change your home.
When it comes to listing your home, there’s no single set of black-and-white rules regarding potential property improvements that apply to every property and every seller. Any upgrade or change you make should only be considered if the change is likely to have an appreciable effect on the market value of your property in the minds of most buyers.
Below are some common suggestions on Do’s and Don’ts on property improvements for your listing:
Painting – A fresh coat of a neutral-toned paint could make the sale easier. Let’s face it – we all like things fresh-looking.
Minor kitchen issues – Things like plumbing leaks should be fixed, and small updates like swapping out light fixtures can make a big difference. You might even consider sanding, staining or painting worn-looking cabinets. Replacing old cabinet hardware is a low-cost improvement that makes a big difference in appearance.
Floors – From fixing scratched wood floors, to replacing cracked tile, to cleaning dirty carpet, a little money spent on sprucing up floors can be well worth the investment.
