It really pays off if you're thinking about buying a Sacramento short sale to hire an experienced short sale agent. An agent emailed me yesterday to say her Buyer B had made a backup offer on a short sale. It's a situation in which the previous buyer walked away after receiving the short sale app...

As a Sacramento short sale agent, I am all about selling short sales. I know how it feels to be a rolling stone. I'm not talking about Mick Jagger. I'm talking about Bob Dylan. I am watching the Martin Scorsese 2005 documentary No Direction Home because it's a new release for the Netflix Instant ...

There is an upside to buying a short sale. There are many upsides and benefits to short sales when you stop to think about it and stop focusing on how long it takes to get the danged approval.

I'm such a nerd that I routinely read Notice of Default reports. I periodically check the records to make sure that none of my Sacramento short sale listings is headed for auction. I'm not gonna be that Sacramento short sale agent caught with my pants down who gets a call from the REO agent askin...

Emergency listings. As a Sacramento short sale agent, sometimes I get phone calls from sellers who need me to take what I call an emergency listing. These are the listings that can't wait. These sellers are begging me to come over RIGHT NOW if I can but no later than tomorrow. With my schedule, t...

I am in such a Christmasy-mood today. I've already ordered my holiday cards, plus, I've bought my holiday gifts. Yup, I start the Christmas season in October. That's because I am moving to Hawaii for 3 weeks over the holidays. I think of it as moving rather than vacation because part of it will s...

Let me say something in defense of the "good old days." It used to be that you could drive to a store, buy a big ticket item, drive around to the loading dock, stick that item into your trunk and drive home with the trunk open. Those days are gone. Especially in a city like Sacramento. Many retai...
