I remember the good old days -- like a couple of years ago -- when having 10 listings meant I was doing pretty well in real estate. Now I have 40 listings. And I tend to obsess over each and every one of them, too. You'd think that's a lot of information to carry around in your head, but it's not...
I truly believe that consumers live in one world and their real estate agents reside in another. We see things from totally different perspectives. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I don't expect sellers or buyers to walk in my shoes, but I do try to walk in theirs. For example, for years I have...
One of the main duties a Sacramento short sale agent performs when listing a short sale is to match that seller with the perfect buyer. Because not every buyer who writes an offer on a short sale is really a buyer. I'm not sure what you call those people, but they aren't buyers. One buyer's agent...
Before I tell you about you about my new short sale listing in Midtown Sacramento, I have to ask if anybody knows what strangeness is up with Bank of America short sales lately? Over the past week, I've received a bunch of phone calls, some really late at night and all from different negotiators ...
One of the perks agents get who work at Lyon Real Estate is our office assistants input our listings to MLS. These hard-working people make sure we comply with all the new rules and regulations of MLS, so we don't violate anything and get fined. If I need to make changes to the marketing comments...
This is a view from the seacliff at Pescadero Beach. We tried to get into the parking lot at San Gregorio Beach, but it was full. I guess that's how the state regulates how many people can go to the beach. If you can't get into the parking lot and you can't park on the highway, you can't go to t...
The Montara Lighthouse is one of those places where it's totally impossible to mess up shooting or framing a photograph. It is possible to miss the turnoff while driving up Highway 1 from Half Moon Bay. I don't know if it was because I temporarily took my eyes off the scenery as I was trying to ...
At the last minute yesterday, my husband and I called our petsitter, loaded up the car and hit the road. I would tell you about my new short sale listing in Cameron Park from yesterday morning, but that will have to wait. So, guess where we went? This photo is a clue.   Here is another landmark ...
Some people can't believe that I write a blog every day. They wonder how I come up with my ideas. The truth is I don't come up with ideas -- stuff happens, and I write about stuff that happens. You can't be in real estate and not have stuff happen. For example, one of my sellers will receive an o...
Housing reporter Jim Wasserman at the Sacramento Bee this morning shares his personal experience and observations. He bought an Elk Grove home in 2002 with a fixed-rate mortgage, which is worth today about what he paid for it. Several of his neighbors have gone into foreclosure. One neighbor boug...
