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.



Not all of the time, of course, but every so often in one of my Sacramento short sales, I get stuck with a negotiator who has a bug up her butt. I use the feminine sense because it's generally a woman who is underpaid, undervalued and overworked at the bank, but it could just as well be a man, to...
I am honored and excited to introduce my team member, Linda Swanson. Linda joins the Elizabeth Weintraub Team with 21 years of real estate experience. She was first licensed in 1989 as a salesperson and a few years ago received her broker's license. We are working together very closely. You proba...
For me, it was pretty horrific to read about the pregnant cow who was shot Tuesday for freaking out at the California State Fair. So, I was a little relieved when I read this morning's paper that animal advocates showed up yesterday at the Fair to voice their opposition.  It's good to know that p...
I drove 68 miles round-trip yesterday to remove a lockbox, and I learned something new. I finally figured out why I sometimes get communication error messages on my Supra display key. It's not because the display key malfunctions. It's because the lockbox is in the sun. That little red rectangle ...
You know how I said a while back that I never dream about real estate? Well, scratch that. Last night dreamed about a couple of my Sacramento short sales, complete with a soundtrack. I woke up and thought, hey, Sacramento Short Sale -- The Musical! It starts out with You Keep Me Hanging On. I cou...
The Land Park car wash people showed up over the weekend to wash my car, and I had forgotten to pull it out of the garage. So, I asked my husband to do it. When he came back into the house he asked, "When was the last time you had your car in for service?" Uh, oh. He said it shook vehemently upon...
Don't deviate from the plan. That's my motto. Because I've learned that 9 times out of 10, if I make an exception to the way I do business, it comes back to bite me. In other words, it's better to be safe than sorry. Once you've got a system that works, stick to it. Don't back down. Ever. The day...
The story on the front page of the Sacramento Bee this morning is about the whale-watching business in Monterey. At this time of year, the blue whales are ubiquitious along the California coastline as they migrate to feed on krill. It's sort of strange to think of the largest creature on earth fe...
A small ocicat, at the moment, is curled up into a tight ball in my lap. She knows that making herself very small is the only way to sit on me while I am typing which, for whatever reason, she absolutely must do at this very moment. Who knows what goes through the mind of a cat? She came into the...
Buyer's agents are the biggest roadblock to closing a short sale. Buyers, if you've been writing offer after offer on those short sales without success, perhaps it's time to fire your agent. I'll probably get a lot of grief for saying this, but that's the way the cookie crumbles or the pooper-sco...
