Elizabeth Weintraub: Sacramento Real Estate

Real Estate Agent - Lyon Real Estate - BRE #00697006
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.
 My sellers received a free rent-back for about 3 weeks when I negotiated the sale of their home in Franklin Crossing, a newer subdivision of homes in Elk Grove. You know, I don't even know why we call that situation a "free rent-back" because that's an oxymoron.  But one thing I know for certain...
 Like most people in California who care about our environment, I harbor a deep concern about curbing global warming. Regardless of what you hear from the White House, the majority of Americans support reducing our carbon footprint; we want to use energy-saving devices and do what we can to be mo...
 The younger people in my life, those in their 30's and 40's, I learn a lot from about social norms today and what's cool, what's not. Because they give a crap and many people my age do not. Those 30- and 40-year-olds still want to hang on to their fading youth and partying ways. They're grabbing...
 Some of the craziest things seem to happen to this Sacramento Realtor. Imagine stumbling out of bed while you're on vacation in Hawaii to find not just a voice mail from MetroList over some crazy-ass thing but also two emails from MetroList on your laptop. That's the drawback to going to Hawaii ...
 At least the flipping calls have stopped for a while. Last week they were all on a roll, which meant some flipping seminar just flew out of town. Those callers read the same cold-calling scripts. You might wonder why are they calling this Sacramento Realtor and not some other schmuck, but it's p...
 You've gotta wonder about how some real estate brokers in Placer County manage to get away without supervising as required by our licensing entity in California. My team just emerged from a nightmare of an escrow, the details of which I did not hear about until after it closed, involving one of ...
 June has been a wild month in Sacramento real estate. For starters, my team and I finished in the top 3 agents at Lyon Real Estate, and I was so busy I didn't even realize how many sales had closed. I'm not one of those agents who counts how many listings she has or how many sales have closed, I...
 It is 7 AM where I am at the moment. Staring out at the cool blue ocean horizon dotted by white sailboats and fishing vessels. My view is 180-degree panoramic and I can't capture its enormity with a camera lens, which is frustrating. I also noticed as I drove down La'aloa Drive that the ocean se...
 Open houses in Sacramento are not always a way to find new buyers for the open house agent. It's very common today for home buyers who attend an open house to either come to the open with a real estate agent or to announce that they already have representation in place. They think they are talki...
My physical presence in Hawaii while I work on Sacramento real estate these past two weeks has been helpful in dealing with what would be deemed difficult circumstances if I were not in Hawaii. There is a calmness that supercedes some of the craziness and keeps my perspective in check. For exampl...
