You've heard that adage, right? Walk a mile in somebody else's shoes. Then, you'll be a mile away with an extra pair of shoes. I've been searching online for the past week, trying to find an oceanfront home to buy. It hasn't been easy. I've been looking at this through the eyes of a buyer, not th...
I had a couple of closings yesterday. One was in Roseville, and the other was Rocklin. Both were short sales. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I list and sell short sales from Galt to Lincoln. I'd like to say that I sell only in Sacramento, but that's not the case. In fact, we've got a short sal...
Did you read what Zsa Zsa said when she saw that billboard on TV, which her husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt slapped up in her honor? The billboard is on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. It's a wedding photo of Zsa Zsa Gabor and her husband.  Celebrating 25 years of marriage in August. Von Anha...
When I started in the real estate business, I could not understand why an agent would not answer her phone. Today, I know the answer to that question. My phone rings constantly. If you want to get through to me, it's better to send an email. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I field not only call...
I have been thinking about buying a second home. Yup, the market has tanked and everything is going to hell in a hand-basket -- especially in California -- which makes this a **perfect** time to buy. Interest rates are so low and attractive. With rates hovering between 4.5% and 5%, I can't help b...
I don't care what anybody says, it is a bad sign when a borrower goes into underwriting and doesn't come out for more than a week. Because I am a Sacramento short sale agent, I manage a lot of listings in which borrowers vanish into underwriting. Loan officers stop returning phone calls because, ...
I'd like to say that I play computer games to bridge "down" time, but that would be a lie. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I don't have any free time during the week. I work my butt off from Monday to Friday, typically from 5 AM to 7 PM. Yup, I put in 14-hour days / 70-hour weeks on selling Sac...
A reader from my Homebuying website at About.com sent me this graphic, along with several others showing more closeup images of foreclosures in various cities. They didn't all use the same "close up" so I didn't include them. That would be misleading to show a graphic enlarged 200% versus 100%. ...
All of this talk about SB 458 and how it affects a short sale in California is short-sighted. That's because nobody seems to be paying attention to the bigger issue at hand. All of the attention has been focused on the release of liability for the seller. Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, I hate ...
Let's face it, in 1960, the Everly Brothers were some of the dorkiest guys around. Phil and Don Everly had zero hunk factor. They looked like somebody put their faces into a vice grip. Maybe they were just too wholesome to be attractive. There was no bad boy vibe going on there, not like with Elv...
