Ed Silva wrote a blog this morning about a home in Connecticut that buyers couldn't see because they couldn't get inside. He said he couldn't sell it if buyers couldn't get inside. Mostly he was talking about snowplows and shoveling a path to the front door so buyers don't have to crawl over snow...
If you don't have anything good to say about yourself, who does? I know there are agents who struggle with promotion and there are those you can't shut up. I'd like to believe I'm not really walking down that street but that would be delusional because we all need to promote ourselves or get some...
"Oh, I dunno, dose two loans on a short sale dere, sounds like we should pass." That's what an agent told me yesterday! I could not believe my ears. They would and probably did tell their buyer not to make an offer on a short sale in Sacramento based simply on the fact that it involved negotiatin...
Always the logical one, this Sacramento real estate agent. When my husband and I went down to the courthouse in 1999 in Minneapolis to get a fishing license, I noticed that Minnesota back then had offered a discount for a joint fishing license -- if you were married. And low and behold, just over...
If you want to buy a home, you need to call a real estate agent. I love saying that to people. There's a certain amount of satisfaction in those words, especially when it's an investor who is trying to put the squeeze on the listing agent by plying her with champagne-and-roses-talk. They get take...
Well, other agents did this horrible thing, and I've had agents do this other despicable . . . that was an excuse I received yesterday to explain a behavior. All I could say was I was sorry this agent had encountered problems. We all encounter problems. It's called life. It's called selling homes...
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. That's been pounded into my head since I was old enough to eat dirt and like it. The writer in me recalls the old catchphrase from City News Bureau in Chicago, which my husband is so fond of repeating: If your mother says she loves you, check it o...
It was a dark and cold and blustery Sunday night, oh, wait, that was in Minnesota. Here in Sacramento it was just dark. And very busy. I had a private showing going on at one home in Elk Grove with about 15 groups of buyers and their agents touring the home during its two-hour showing time. No ma...
In some of the purchase offers I receive for my listings in Sacramento, I often spot the telltale sign. That is the sign of the long-suffering and would-be Sacramento home buyer: an earnest money check dated in the summer of 2012. That's how long some buyers have been searching for a home in Sacr...
It's not as easy as choosing between an investor buyer or a first-time home buyer because an investor buyer might be a temporary owner who is flipping the home. But you get my question, right? It boils down to basics. Do you want to support home ownership in your Sacramento neighborhoods or do yo...
