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.
A West Sacramento seller I've been talking to since early March, which was two trips ago while in Hawaii, has now decided to sell. He owns a pool home in West Sacramento, one of my favorite specialities to sell. That's because people who are buying a pool home generally have their hearts set on a...
Home buyers in Sacramento face a tough decision when it comes to choosing between building a house or buying a resale. Many buyers today want newer homes with all the upgrades. They are particularly attracted to SMART homes so they help to conserve energy, reduce global warming, and run homes fro...
In many ways, reviewing offers on a future date makes it much easier for a Sacramento listing agent and her seller. However, that tactic can also backfire in so many different ways, which is why I would like to discuss this concept today. It sounds very appealing to tell a seller she can list her...
Fortunately, for this Sacramento Realtor, my company, Lyon Real Estate, maintains 17 offices throughout the Sacramento region, so I can pop in to meet clients at any of them. However, I imagine in the next decade all of that will or probably should change. Brick and mortar is so 2005. At least no...
If you are an impatient person, you probably will not like the pace of life in Hawaii. On the mainland, if you wait in a line to ring up a purchase and the person in front of you has finished their transaction, yet stands there talking to the clerk, you might get irritated. Sigh. Shuffle the good...
Even though we have an increase of inventory in Sacramento, demand seems to match. However, some homes in our incredibly hot seller's market are not selling. Why is that, do you think? I know everybody likes to say price, but it is not always price. Part of it is the expectations Millennials have...
When our refrigerator in Sacramento showed signs of losing its digital mind, it wasn't an easy thing to buy another refrigerator. Aside from a ton of options to weigh, width and height considerations, it would be nice, I figured, if the refrigerator lasted more than 9 years. They make them to wea...
No, I don't really say Clamato. I detest the drink. And I have so much of it now, quite by accident. I did not plan to buy Clamato juice, but it was cleverly disguised as tomato juice with the clam part sorta falling several steps behind the original words. Ick, ick, ick, I do not like the stuff....
One of the reasons I love working with out-of-area agents is because I know how to make the process easy for them, and they aren't much trouble. Other agents in Sacramento have told me they do not like that interaction one little bit. We get a lot of agents from San Francisco / Bay Area coming in...
My friend in Denver, Joan Cox, wrote a blog about waiting for people. Interesting, I thought, about how long some people will wait and how impatient others are. We all have our own set tolerances. What I find irritating, though, is when people make an appointment and then don't show up or call. H...
