Every listing is Pending! When you drive through the neighborhoods you see For Sale signs, but every listing is pending! The one on Crowley Way we actually represent the buyer and the listing agent tells us we should have "short sale approval" in the next couple of days, so it will be pending also! This is (2 comments)

Today we have only 17 bank owned homes on the market in Elk Grove, CA! This time last year we had over 100. What a change a year has made. This is why so many bank owned homes come on the market and receive multiple offers within the first few days on the market! To get a list of these bank owned homes on the market today, click on the image below.
This shows you where the bank owned inventory has come from and where it is now! We are at a 5 year low on overall inventory in (6 comments)
elk grove real estate agent: Elk Grove home sellers please believe me.... - 09/04/12 06:49 AM
It seems as though when I walk into a listing appointment with an Elk Grove homeowner these days, the sellers don't believe that we WILL sell their home in the first week it is on the market and we WILL receive multiple offers on the home as long as we price the home at the right price. Even though our market has changed and it is now a seller's market in Elk Grove, CA, price is still the key to showing the buyer the value of the home.
A great example of this just happened a week ago. I walked into (1 comments)
I always feel so blessed when one of my daughters has a birthday and we all get together. This last weekend, it was my daughter Rachel's 22nd birthday and it was made even more special by all of her cousins being able to make it to celebrate with us. As they all get older, it is more and more uncommon to get all of them together, my daughters and my brother's 4 boys. They all have such a great time together and so many memories of growing up together. I know it made it even more special for Rachel to (1 comments)

Well the spring market is definitely here this year! It seems as though it actually hit this year in early February. Typically a lot of Elk Grove home sellers will ask me, "Should I wait until Spring or Summer to put my home on the market? My answer is always the same....It depends on when you need to be in your new home. Let me explain. As a seller, if you need to be in your home by July 1st and average days on the market is 30 days in your area and the normal closing time is 45 days, you (1 comments)

elk grove real estate agent: Is the Elk Grove real estate market heating up? - 02/12/12 11:46 AM
I have been out with buyers this past week looking at homes in the Elk Grove CA area and have been surprised at how quickly homes are selling. Although I know our Elk Grove foreclosure or bank owned listngs have been selling quickly...the last one had 15 offers within the first week it was on the market...I guess I have been surprised this weekend to see how many Elk Grove short sales have multiple offers within the first week or two that they are on the market also! With our current inventory in the Elk Grove area down to 1.5 months (1 comments)

elk grove real estate agent: Elk Grove Bank Owned Listings...they seem to be flying off the shelves! - 01/23/12 12:51 AM
We list quite a few Elk Grove bank owned homes and if a recent listing is any indication of what is going to happen with them this year, everyone needs to hold on. We received a listing agreement from Bank of America on a Friday for this Elk Grove foreclosure....I had valued it at $235,000 to $245,000 on the BPO I completed for the bank depending on repairs that they might decide to do. The air conditioner was stolen, it needed carpet and interior paint. Well, the bank decided not to do any of this work and put it on the (0 comments)
