Sacramento real estate and housing market, from Galt to Lincoln. Local observations about Sacramento restaurants, special events, music concerts and the Sacramento lifestyle, including great places to vacation around the world.
Why do you want to sell and how fast do you need to move are two questions every Sacramento listing agent should ask. But asking those questions and digging deeper are things some Sacramento Realtors don't do. It's not because they don't want to probe; it's because often they're so excited after ...
It freaked me out a little yesterday to turn the calendar over to May. In some ways, I'm still recovering from my last winter vacation to Vanuatu, which ended in early January, and here it is May, and we haven't yet scheduled our winter vacation for this December. Well, I do have a 3-week Hawaii ...
I've been reading recently about all of the new construction slated for Rancho Cordova, which will likely help to continue to increase the value of homes in the Anatolia Village subdivision. Buyers love the neighborhood off Sunrise and Crysthany, near the Anatolia Clubhouse, and so will you.I jus...
I am a firm believer that I can weather just about any storm, navigate any horrible situation, as long as I can see a reward on the horizon. It's probably this vision that has served me well through my decades in real estate. I'm not talking about a financial reward, either; it's an internal rewa...
Reading blogs on AR can suck me in so easily that I have to be careful about how much time I actually spend on AR. It's not like this Sacramento Realtor has unlimited periods of time during the day in which to chat with other real estate agents about things that are not pertinent to my clients no...
There are times in this business when I'm tempted to tell a potential short sale seller: why don't you just light the thing on fire and be done with it? But I don't advocate arson nor any illegal activities, so, even if those thoughts pass through my brain, not all of them make their way out of m...
There are some people in the world who love adversity, like my husband, for example. He will gladly take the good with the bad, and he will somehow find a way to wallow in the depths of despair, although to be fair, with some sense of sensibility; whereas I prefer the sunny side of life, and coul...
An agent asked when we will present offers on a certain listing. I present offers as they arrive and, in fact have an offer now, which I disclosed and added: but the sellers hope to make a decision today. The agent asked if he could send an offer tomorrow instead. He's certainly welcome to send a...
It's a simple question: are you working with an agent? But many Sacramento home buyers don't know how to answer that question, so I caution my team members to go that extra step when qualifying a home buyer. They need to ask if the buyer understands that if we show them the home, we will write th...
After years of working short sales and foreclosures in the previously distressed Sacramento real estate market, it is such a pleasure to see our local economy turning around and the real estate market rebound. This has been happening for the last 3 years, and it's such a relief to work in a marke...
