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.



I stopped at the Pottery Barn this morning -- I can't seem to stay OUT of that store!! Because I wear my badge these days almost everywhere, I'm easily recognizable as a real estate agent. The Pottery Barn sales clerk, staring at my name badge asked, "So, how's the market? Pretty bad, huh?"I glan...
When you sit down to write in your blog, do you know exactly what you are going to say or do you wing it? Some people, I hear, prepare an outline, spread out Post-It notes, open related books to bookmarked pages, scour the Internet for fact-checking and even then, they face an empty screen with a...
It saddens me to report that renowned real estate columnist Bob Bruss died today. It was difficult to blog about it, but I did it anyway.Trying to choose companion articles to follow was difficult. Every article I chose had some connotation to it, even the ones I ended up including. Somehow, wor...

SPECS: The home has 2 to 3 bedrooms, one bath (with dual entrances) approximately 1367 square feet per assessor -- seems much larger -- and it was built in 1910. One car detache...
I hear it over and over, "We're going to wait until the market hits bottom." Like buyers have some secret crystal ball that we, as professionals, have no access to. I submit that many of these buyers are following the herd. The herd buys property in a seller's market. When everybody else is falli...
It's too bad that so many of the banks were burned and now have excess inventory on their books. I feel for them, I really do, but one would think that most banks would be more eager to dump that inventory instead of sitting on it. I searched in the central core of Sacramento, and found 489 REOs ...
