A big honkin' black crow has discovered my water fountain in the back yard of my home in Land Park. It's not really a fountain per se, it's a 24-inch-in-diameter platter-like bowl, like you'd use to bake a deep dish pizza, stuck on top of a four-foot pole that sticks into the ground. Birds land o...

Soon as a Sacramento listing hit the market, the seller freaked out. He started calling other agents in Sacramento. He asked for opinions; did he do the right thing? One agent promised she would stage his home for free, plus she promised to hold a four-hour open house. Wow! Four hours! When his o...

Some person I've never spoken to nor had any business relationship with decided two years ago to sign up for automatic Sacramento home listings from my company website. He chose me as his Sacramento real estate agent, but he never responded to any inquires from me, so I stopped emailing him. I am...

So, i...

Met a photographer from the Sacramento Business Journal at my seller's home in Fair Oaks. Then I had to get up at oh-dark-thirty this morning to cle...

People think that you can't do a short sale if you're current on your mortgage payments, and that's not necessarily true. There are short sales that can be done when the seller is current. I did such a short sale through Wells Fargo for a woman who was retiring out of the area and could not sell ...

Sellers have a great deal of information to absorb when doing a short sale in Sacramento, especially if it's a Cooperative Short Sale through Bank of America. That's because the rules are always changing, new forms can suddenly be required and it's a ton of foreign data to understand. What's simp...

This morning I received a spam email through Active Rain from a seller of socks of Poland who decided that writing to a Sacramento real estate agent was a good way to sell socks. Socks from Poland, no less. Can't say it has ever crossed my mind that I need Polish socks for some reason. I have ple...

I'm talking about buying a brand new home, a spanking-brand-new place in the Sacramento area. Maybe the back yard isn't even landscaped yet. You've walked into the builder's new sales office, all googly eyes over the acrylic model homes in the raised glass display case. Perhaps you've progressed ...
