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.
Having faith that your government will not screw you over is a practice that has become somewhat foreign to me over the later decades of my life. It used to be that life was easier. You could avoid rhetoric and ignore the noise, muttering to yourself, oh, they would never do THAT. Until one day y...
Our seasonal trends for Sacramento real estate allow for inventory to decline over the winter months of November, December and January. So you will see fewer homes on the market at this time of year. Fewer homes for sale generally results in fewer closed sales. However, it doesn't mean this is a ...
Stumbling upon honus (turtles) was not my goal yesterday, but that's exactly what happened. Except for the extremely windy weather and severely pounding surf up the coast, it was a beautiful day to go to the beach. Kathy Streib gave me the idea to go. I thought why am I sitting in front of my com...
What I've discovered is some people love red ginger and some do not. I've heard some landscapers warn against red ginger because it's so invasive and spreads like crazy. Several I had spoken to suggested planting soap ginger instead. There are not a lot of commercial places to buy plants in Kailu...
Even when people speak perfect English, Sacramento real estate agents can have a bit of difficulty understanding what they say. Like, yesterday, I felt like such a fool.

Coming to an agreement (a meeting of minds) and being in contract are two different things when buying a home in California. My sellers were pretty excited last week after they signed all of the paperwork. They were hugging each other; we've sold our home. But that was not the case.Yes, they sign...
As I sit on my lanai this morning pondering why some buyer's agents tend to go slaphappy checking boxes on the California Residential Purchase Agreement, I have a theory to present. First I ought to put on a robe because it's barely 68 degrees in Kailua-Kona. Chilly.  So cold last night I discove...
Well, now that I typed that title to my blog, I can actually think of one way a purchase offer can be a time waster. Those are the offers that stand no chance in hell of acceptance. Usually from the so-called wanna-be cash investors. When they submit an extremely low offer, especially when we hav...
Of course, I'm being facetious. You would like to believe that people are calmer, friendlier around the holidays, right? I know I sure would. But a lot of tempers seem to be flaring up lately over small misunderstandings. Some people just grab and run with it, throwing bombs on the sidelines. But...
