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.
Many Sacramento buyer's agents are struggling to show homes to anxious buyers, and there are not very many homes for sale in January. Our market has not cooled down over the winter. Yes, there has been a slowing of new listings, which means a slowing in sales, but the demand is as high as ever. N...
When I think back to the things I did in 2005 to try to establish an internet presence, especially on Google as a top producing Sacramento Realtor, it seems so immature today. But all of my efforts paid off some 13 years later. Even back then, though, there were agents who gave me a hard time abo...
Do you realize how incredibly diverse cat purrs are? The more cats you bond with in your life, the more you realize how different they sound. With some cats, you might feel the vibration but not actually hear the purr itself. Other cats are so danged loud they wake you up in the middle of the nig...
It seems that everything we have at our house in Hawaii is so much nicer than the stuff at our house in Sacramento. But that's probably because it's newer. My husband keeps telling me that I live in Hawaii now, but I really don't. Just part of the year and a few weeks here and there. OK, maybe a ...
For some reason, I seem to be taking a lot of condo listings lately. Maybe investors are cashing in on this hot market? For example, check out this Westlake Villas condo. This is among my favorite communities in Natomas. It is to the west of 80 and near high-end homes. Further, the complex is lai...
One of my team members shared the theory that when people get older (much older than me, for example), they are prepared to die. We engaged in this discussion because a client had told me his mother, who passed away last November at age 99, constantly complained every time she saw him, "Why am I ...
In our low inventory and high buyer demand housing market in Sacramento this spring, there is no better place to be as a seller than to own the only Woodside Oaks condo for sale. Especially an affordably priced condo. Especially a one-story unit in fabulous condition, turnkey, ready to move into....
When I first began discussions with my husband about buying a house in Hawaii, I bought a few books from Amazon about moving to Hawaii. There were a few horror tales. I'll never forget the story about the woman who could not deal with flying B52 bombers smacking her in the face. And the fact tree...
Cutting to the chase, in a seller's market in Sacramento, the types of common home inspection repairs are pretty much nil. Meaning they don't really exist. Sellers are not required to do any home inspection repairs in escrow. Not even lender-required repairs. Because you know whose fault that is ...
Even with declining inventory and slower sales last month, our median price in the Sacramento market remains at $350,000. I've talked with sellers who told me other agents gave them reports that the market is softening and they should list at a lower price. I don't know what to say except not eve...
