I did not know what hospice was when my mother died. My sister said she was in hospice and I thought it was like a rehabilitation center that was somehow connected to the hospital. I figured I'd see her again when she got out. She was always in the hospital for something, a place where I have rar...

At what point does a listing agent need to take responsibility for the buyer's agent's performance or knowledge? Well, I say never. It is not my job to ask the buyer's agent if he checked the comparable sales or discussed the value of the home with the buyer. I personally do not care whether the ...

The fact is most sellers do not have any idea what kind of repairs they should do before selling a home. They draw from their own limited experience about what they might like to see if they were buying a home, which often has no bearing whatsoever on the present real estate market.I mean, what c...

I do not know if other listing agents go into great detail about why the seller rejected a bunch of offers but I do know that I do not. Although I am asked all of the time. Sometimes repeatedly. There is no upside to explaining why. On top of this, disgruntled buyers who feel the world is out to ...

I have a listing in which every time a person enters the home, the seller sends me pictures of the intruders, er, visitors, from his security camera. I get to watch them on the front steps, wandering through the living room, opening closets and peering into bathrooms. It seems creepy to me, but t...

Who doesn't like Motown music? Nobody, that's who. I don't know a single person my age who doesn't have fond memories of that time period, from the early 1960s into the 1980s. You get a chance at this musical to see Michael Jackson as a kid, and Diana Ross, and the famous Berry Gordy, along with ...

This goes beyond the usual tracking of leaves or dirt into the entry. But it is still unusual to receive a phone call from my seller after a home inspection because the home inspectors left the home in a mess or, worse, unsecured. Although, I will say that once a seller told me he went around the...

I do try to help brand new agents in Sacramento. We were all new once. Even when sometimes it doesn't make sense for me to do so, I might try to help them out with their buyers if they don't know what to say or how to go about handling a sensitive situation. But those are in escrows in which I am...

You know how sometimes you see listings in MLS that say, hurry and make an offer? Or this home won't last long? Or, we're looking at all offers two weeks ago and that home is still sitting on the market today, which makes you wonder what is that agent smoking? Well, not so in this case.This is no...

When I showed up in West Sacramento last night to talk about selling a home in Bridgeway Islands, I could see the sellers had prepared a list of questions for me. I love it when sellers do this because I know all of the answers! I answer their questions before they ask. I know a lot of things abo...
