I can't count the number of Sacramento home sellers I'm working with lately who don't want to accept an offer. Even a full price offer. They want to wait to see how many other offers they will get. But the problem is they don't tell me this until an offer arrives. But that's probably because they...
All of this clamoring for inventory in Sacramento is nuts. First time home buyers are having a really tough time trying to buy a home. Sellers are getting bombarded with offers left and right, quick duck! The swords are coming out as the fighting begins. I tell ya, the real estate market in Sacra...
A buyer called me yesterday and asked whether I was a real estate broker or a real estate agent. I thought that was an odd question as I almost never get asked that question. Sometimes callers think I am a real estate lawyer or a reporter but they rarely ask for the distinction between an agent a...
Just ask Pica the cat. Or, as our pharmacist likes to call him: Peeeeeeeeeee-KAH. I have written a story today about my cat, Pica, and Prozac. Cats can get stressed, and a short sale can stress them out. All pets can get stressed. I was in Roseville this weekend listing a home that was not a shor...
How many ways can a seller do a bankruptcy short sale in Sacramento? Turns out, quite a few. There's a new game in town, too, in which the Trustee of the bankruptcy is getting paid bazooka bucks ($15K to $50K) to sell a short sale during the bankruptcy. I see drawbacks to that, though, because it...

In fact, I wrote it anyway but I got hung up on the word REALTORĀ®, because our trade association, the National Association of REALTORS, restricts how we can use our affiliation with that association. I dow...
All of my clients are brilliant, funny and witty. Or, maybe they just seem that way to me. I tend to work with a great group of sellers, especially sellers in Elk Grove. It's not that I don't sell homes all over Sacramento, because I do. I also specailize in the neighborhood where I live in Land ...
You know how sometimes you overhear snippets of conversation, completely by accident, and you can't get those words out of your mind? You're not crazy, it happens to all of us. A few years ago while my husband and I were on vacation at an exclusive resort in Hawaii, a rather snobby hotel guest ha...
We have an excellent neighborhood watch group in my Land Park neighborhood in Sacramento. We all hang out together on a neighborhood website and report incidences as they happen. If a cat so much as scampers through the yard, everybody on my block seems to know about it. The worst stuff I see is ...
How high do you go in Sacramento to buy a house? How high do you go in Sacramento to price a house? These are very difficult times in Sacramento real estate because prices and appraisers and sellers and buyers and real estate agents **everybody** is all over the board. It's like ants running ever...
