Talk about views. The sellers of this Natomas short sale home enjoy tremendous views of the Coastal Range, and there are empty lots all around. Some day builders will resume construction in this part of Natomas, but it's unlikely to happen for a while. This Hampton's Village home was built by KB ...

Thomas Wolfe wrote a book titled, "You Can't Go Home Again," published after his death. The book's title means different things to different people, as I'm sure you've heard that phrase quoted over and over. To some people it means that maybe you have faulty memories about your previous home, and...

It seems to be some sort of secret in Sacramento, and perhaps elsewhere in the country, that nobody talks about. Of course, when I talk about it to my husband, he says I shouldn't care and, if I care strongly enough, maybe I should be working for a nonprofit instead of selling real estate, but th...

Today is my 10th wedding anniversary. Every year my husband and I celebrate by giving each other traditional gifts. It's something goofy that we do just for the fun of it. The idea is that the gifts should not be really expensive, but something that we'll look at when we're 90 and say: "Where di...

Before my buyers write an offer, I always check the public records available through Realist in MLS. Sometimes I double check this information against that in the title company's plant because the two can differ. I'm looking for conflicting information between the data in MLS and the public recor...

My work days lately have been brutal and long. It's that first-time home buyer tax credit that is partly responsible for fueling the unrelenting activity in Sacramento's real estate market, so I often find myself doing 3 things at once, on top of balancing new projects. An agent called yesterday ...

I had the strangest phone call yesterday. Well, not really, many of my calls are often weird. An agent called to ask if the seller had signed her buyer's short sale offer. The buyer had offered an extremely good price, apparently, way above list and the offer was all cash. The problem was I had n...

This is a highly desired upper-floor end unit with a view in the Bella Rose condo association in Natomas, which is going on the market today as a short sale. These condos were built in 2005, and the seller upgraded her 2-bedroom, 2-bath unit. The kitchen has granite counters, ditto on the baths. ...

Almost every home buyer I run into wants to live in either Land Park or Curtis Park. We've got tree-canopied streets, a gorgeous park, shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, friendly neighbors and we can walk to downtown or Midtown Sacramento. Who wouldn't want to live in Land Park or Curtis Par...

Looking for a short sale home in south Sacramento with a pool? If you're willing to contribute a little sweat equity to fix up the back yard and clean up the pool, this may be a golden opportunity for you. This home sits on a large corner lot. It's .20 acres, per the assessor. The front yard is a...
