As I drove along Florin Road yesterday, which is a terrible street for traffic, I realized the number of the house was already slipping my mind. I was on my way to pick up a lockbox from a closed listing.  They don't make the left-turn lanes on Florin long enough for cars to pull into or the ligh...
With many new listings, often I can find enough previous photos in MLS to give me a good impression of the home. Good enough that I sometimes don't even need to see it in person to determine market value. But not this home. This new listing in Rancho Cordova exceeded my expectations, through its ...
As I type that question, it seemed very straight forward. Like the answer is definitely: nobody. But the more I thought about it -- in between placing my curser in the text box and positioning my fingers on the correct keys on the keyboard to begin typing -- the more I realized that some agents a...
We've all been there, right? We call a listing agent to find out if she has any offers or when she's presenting . . . and crickets. No call back. We email, we text, we call again. No response. It's hard to represent a buyer if we can't talk to the listing agent. Never mind that we look like a com...
I went out to Natomas to talk with a seller yesterday who has been working on his house for 10 years. Long distance. He has little flooring, no counter tops, cabinets that scream for paint and outdated light fixtures. He wants a price that is not in line with the neighborhood, and he's doing the ...
The thing I really enjoy about receiving Trendgraphix reports from Lyon Real Estate is the fact our reports substantiate and explain what we're seeing as agents out in the field. It's only by being extemely active in Sacramento real estate that an agent really has her finger on the pulse of what'...
You know how some homes exude a warm energy when you walk in the door? I realize this sounds a bit touchie-feelie, but there is an energy that most of us can feel. It's falls into the 3-second rule of what a buyer thinks and feels at first blush. Most homes either welcome you or repel or they hav...
In some ways, this home in Upper Land Park reminds me of my first home in Minneapolis. Although my first home was about half this size. This home in Sacramento is much bigger. But it excudes much of the same charm and homeyness. Is homeyness a word?Part of it comes from the year of 1949, when the...
We have new inventory! I have 5 open houses scheduled for Sunday, March 11th, including this new listing in Land Park. Just hit the market yesterday in Sacramento. Buyers are drawn to Land Park for its vintage homes, tree-canopied streets and close proximity to downtown restaurants and The Sacram...
Whenever I am managing a multiple-offer situation and cash offers arrive, I am automatically wary. Because I've seen too many situation in which the cash buyer entire intention is to buy the home for less. If not on the front end, then by all means on the back end. They are often insincere, which...
