Much of what I advise home buyers depends on the price and terms under which they purchased a home. Not every aspect of real estate has a cookie-cutter answer. If you're buying an REO, for example, only an extreme health and safety code violation will generally persuade a lender to agree to a Req...

It's been an exciting day. First, I threw on my sweaty old cut-offs and t-shirt from yesterday, pulled my hair back in a tangled mess and dashed out the door at 6:25 AM. I had to meet a home inspector at 6:30 and let him in to inspect a home in Land Park for my buyers. Riverside Boulevard was bac...

Day 2 -- Electricians, Plumbers and FramersPut a power tool in a framer's hand and wield that power tool with authority, and I swoon. There is something remarkably appealing about a young man clasping a reciprocating saw tightly in his left hand with his right forefinger firmly depressing the pow...

Because the number of short sale homes are rising, and so many sellers are upside down, it's always a good idea to figure out the seller's net proceeds before writing an offer. For example, there are two homes for sale down the street from me in Land Park that are both short sales. The listing ag...

The cats are very upset. Everything is not where it's supposed to be. Not to mention, two of them were locked in the bedroom all day yesterday. The other cat spends most of his time in a 4 x 4 pen because he has kidney disease, plus a touch of senioritis. He was pretty oblivious to the goings an...

I know I said in the past that I would never go on the cable TV show House Hunters, but a few weeks ago I found myself eating those words. Hey, sometimes it happens that we change our minds -- it's a woman's prerogative. After all, I reasoned, I've done a few TV shows, and they are actually kind ...

The tree-lined streets of Land Park today rose from their dusty Gold Rush days, founded by names easily recognized in Land Park such as Swanston, Marshall, Cavanaugh, Caruthers, Wright and Kimbrough. Land south of the Zoo was first developed by John Sutter and known as Sutterville. Many landmark...

If you miss a cactus flower bloom on the day it bursts into splendor, you have missed it forever. There is no turning back the clock. You've got to catch the moment when it arrives or it's gone. It's very similar to a new listing that pops on the market. The minute a home that fits your parameter...
