Elizabeth Weintraub: Sacramento Real Estate

Real Estate Agent - RE/MAX Gold - DRE #00697006
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.



The weather has been unseasonably warm lately, and although Sacramento weather forecasters continue to promise cooler weather, it just hasn't happened yet. So, how does that explain why some of my oranges are turning orange? Late September is not a time for these oranges to turn color. We genera...
As shocking as this may sound to some, I decided to take part of Sunday off and go to the movies with my husband. He wanted to see Batman -- so I countered with Richard Gere. Draw. Thought about the new Coen Brothers' movie, but that's a DVD movie (not a 5-star). So, there was only one choice lef...
I'm at a huge disadvantage here. For years, I have yearned to go to Fairytale Town in Land Park. The problem? I'm not a kid anymore, even though my sister may disagree, and you can't get in to Fairtytale Town without a kid holding your hand. I can visualize some drunken guy jumping out of his F10...
Most of my friends would say I am a social butterfly. Probably because I regularly talk to a lot of people I don't know while pumping gas, dining out, or in the dressing room at Macy's, but those conversations fall short of what constitutes an actual friendship. I am friends with my clients, peop...
My associate, Rose Mary Swart, invited me to lunch at The Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento. That's Rose Mary, on the left. I don't know who she is sitting next to. OK, it's me. Rose Mary says she loves to celebrate the beginning of fall by doing lunch in the tree-canopied courtyard of the ...
The banks are taking a long time to decide on foreclosures for one reason: They can't do it any faster. Many asset managers are handling 500 files per month. The banks are overwhelmed with foreclosures and understaffed. Not only are they dealing with potential sales, but there are a flood of othe...
Day three, and the driveway is finished. What do you think about that chain-link gate? I'm thinking ornamental ironwork, an electronic gate that swings open, might be a good solution. It's not that I really need a gate, because we don't have a dog, but without it, I can't really enclose the back...
The cement crew finished up half the driveway last night. The tool you see this guy using is called a joiner. It has a slot in the center that grooves the cement while the top of the tool smooths the joint. We discovered a clean-out for the sewer line below the former brick patio, which is why y...
In case you were wondering what real estate agents really do on the computer, I'd like to introduce you to my new chart. Oh, sure, you say, all our time is spent searching for properties in MLS, writing blogs, reading real estate articles, writing purchase contracts and taking listings, but I hav...
Hey everybody, it's home improvement time again. It has been almost two months since I've tackled a project around the house, you know. All the homes in Land Park on my street have new driveways. Mine was beginning to look like an eyesore, cracking and heaving. Plus, we had a brick patio against...
