Sometimes things turn out to be a blessing in disguise. I was a little astonished yesterday when a client emailed me to ask if his home in Roseville had gone to auction yet. When I pulled up the information in the tax rolls, for some reason, I also ran the address in MLS. It was a shock when I p...
Lockbox day came and went on Saturday. But I didn't have time to collect all of my lockboxes from my closings last week because one of my Land Park / Curtis Park buyers needed me to draft a Request for Repair. Picking up lockboxes falls to the bottom of my priority list when a client calls. I had...
When Willie Nelson cut off his hair this week, the news made headlines around the world. When I do it, people just look at my business card, look at me and wonder who is standing in front of them. Of course, Willie didn't lose 30 pounds, either. Plus, the city of Austin is naming Second Street af...
Over the last 12 months I have sold on average more than one home per week. I know this because I looked at the stats in MLS a few days ago and my mouth fell open. I'm not one of those Land Park agents who routinely tracks her closings because that's a luxury I rarely allot the time to do. I tend...
I suspect I will get flack for this, but I'm gonna say it anyway. Is it too much to expect agents to read? Is that an unrealistic expectation? The two most often overlooked and information-worthy items in a MLS listing are the showing instructions and the confidential agent remarks. Yet, I know t...
One of the main questions sellers who are contemplating a short sale always ask is whether they should stop making mortgage payments. There is no cut and dry answer to that question. Not to mention, it's also a legal question best answered by those in the capacity to render such advice -- which a...
I'm looking for 3 things when I walk through a client's home to do my agent visual inspection disclosure. The first is saleable features. What is it about this home that makes it special? The second is defects. What am I required to disclose to a potential buyer and should the seller fix the defe...
A Wachovia short sale is preferred by every short sale agent I know. That's because Wachovia cuts through the crap and expedites the approval process. Lately, I've been receiving 24-hour turnaround. It doesn't mean that every short sale approval we get from Wachovia, though, is the approval we ex...
The invention of the microwave pretty much changed America's kitchens. Although, microwaves were invented in the 1940s, they didn't really become affordable or widely used in the country until the early 1970s. By 1975, however, more microwaves were sold than gas ranges, if you can believe that. W...
Gardening is a great way to reduce tension during my somewhat stressful days. I work out of my home office in Land Park, showing homes in Land Park, Curtis Park, East Sacramento and Midtown. I also list Sacramento short sales all over town. So, you can imagine my days are filled with a lot of act...
