166 Acres Prime Development Land Butte County

4330 Foothill Boulevard, Oroville CA

prime development acreage

prime development acreage

This is gorgeous Northern California property with gently rolling hills and a creek running the length of one side. 166 acres are combined in two parcels, just minutes from downtown Oroville in Butte County. An old home site area with mature trees sits atop the land and has 360 degree views of the foothills, Sacramento Valley, Table Mountain, Lake Oroville Dam and the city of Oroville. The access to the property is by paved county maintained Foothill Blvd. The parcel is zoned RR-5 (rural residential 5 acre minimum – check with Butte County Planning for the development potential). The location would make for a BEAUTIFUL winery or micro-brewery. For those who are not interested in developing, the land affords itself to many agricultural opportunities: Olive Orchards; Grape Vineyards; Mandarin and Satsuma Citrus. Turkey, Quail, Deer and many other types of wildlife frequent the land. This would also be an incredible location for a secluded estate.

    Happy Clients, Happy Team.

    This letter was waiting for me this morning.  It came from a buyer who just closed escrow on her new home.

    I am once again reminded how fortunate I am to work with such an amazing, strong group of women.  Our buyer specialists and staff are tireless, strong advocates for our clients.  It is a privilege to be a part of their Team!  Thanks for the exceptional work, ladies.

    “Hi Sandi,

    It is no surprise that you are the top selling agent for the past year! You have a great team! Tammy and Nicole were so incredibly helpful in seeing me through this sometimes crazy and frequently harrowing loan and purchase. Honestly, I thought it was never going to end with some of the mishaps with the loan company! Tammy was a real pro in every way! She meticulously documented everything! She is very smart that way! Nicole stayed on top of things and the two work so well as a team! Liz diligently sent me clean digital copies of all the documents I needed, which was quite a large number and all the ladies in the office were fabulous, friendly and reassuring!!!

    You have a lot to be proud of!!! I have been searching for a year and a half in areas all over Northern California and I spoke with many agents. Tammy and Nicole are by far the most hard-working and consistently POSITIVE!!! What a great asset speaking from the aspect of the bewildered buyer. It took Tammy a very short time to zero in and find what I wanted! I was in a very difficult market with the amount I had to spend (under $100,000)! Yet, I feel that Tammy worked hard and treated me with the same understanding and respect that she would treat the wealthiest of home buyers! Her constant cheerful outlook was so reassuring to me throughout this entire process!!! And as for Nicole, well…. “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”! She was great!

    Please share this information with all those who had a part in the purchase of my home! I don’t want to leave anybody out. You guys are certainly the real deal when it comes to being a team! I never saw anything but an extremely competent, highly professional, well oiled machine as far as the teamwork is concerned. All of that was delicately balanced with a warm interest in me as a customer!!!

    Thanks for a truly wonderful experience! I will be sharing with others my experience with the Sandi Bauman Team for a very long time to come!

    Best Wishes to the Whole Team!!!


    Carolyn Murray”

    January 2013 Closings, The Sandi Bauman Team at Chico Homes Real Estate Sales

    The Sandi Bauman Team Stats for January

    Everybody says January is a slow month for sales. We beg to differ. See below.

    Many potential sellers have been waiting for the distressed market to run it’s course, so that property values would stabilize and begin to recover. If you’re one of those homeowners, the Chico real estate market finally has good news for you!  Chico prices have improved by about 5.7% in the past 12 months. Combine that with super low interest rates and reduced inventory, and we might be looking at the exact opportunity that many homeowners have been waiting for.

    One of the most important decisions a seller has to make, aside from timing, is which Realtor they should entrust to list, market, and negotiate their property.

    What is important to consider when partnering with a professional? Do you need a big box, commercialized brand that feels familiar? Will a fleet of agents working for the company instill a sense of confidence? Should the Realtor have the shiniest car in the lot?  Open houses all weekend?  Is their website the deciding factor?  A snazzy name tag?

    The Sandi Bauman Team at Chico Homes is a little non-traditional. Some would say that we buck the system a bit. Truth be told, we kind of like it that way, because it works for us and our clients. Because we think outside the box, our compact team packs a serious punch. With one dedicated listing broker, three committed buyer specialists, and three top notch transaction coordinators, we often out-perform the offices with agent counts of 30 or more. We’ve chosen to focus our skills, streamline our systems, and dedicated ourselves to providing a refined service. Perhaps most importantly, we truly CARE that we are doing the best possible job that we know how to do for our clients.

    Ready to list?

    Year to date, we’ve outperformed our competiton 3 to 1 on the listing side. It would be our pleasure and privilege to make YOUR story OUR next success story.
