A buyer's agent called yesterday to ask whether I had any offers on a certain listing in Sacramento. I asked why she she was asking. Because, as I put it, I probably will have an offer on Sunday, given the big jump in activity I've witnessed at that particular home. Well, it turns out her buyer, ...
Working with divorcing couples, even if only one of them seems to be my client, means representing both individuals if both are on title. That's the thing that some agents forget because they meet with one spouse, sign the paperwork, discuss the terms of sale, the marketing, all of that stuff, wh...
Because I don't pay the bills in my household, the names PG&E and SMUD are pretty much synonymous with each other to me. In fact, I struggle all the time to remember that PG&E is the gas company because it has an E on the end that stands for Electric. SMUD sounds more like a gas company, like it'...
I stopped by Trulia earlier this week to enter a few sold sales and noticed that my profile has been merged with Zillow. As a result of that merger, Trulia has accidentally wiped out all of my reviews. I had more than 90 reviews from my clients posted on Trulia, and now they are gone.My hard-earn...
Now I know why suddenly the second lenders in so many Sacramento short sales have been demanding beneficiary statements from the first lenders prior to issuing an approval. I used to think, what the hey, why do they care how much is owed to the first lender. Short is short. Right?But then I saw w...
Navigating stuff online has been increasingly complex and it's even harder for a first-time home buyer in Sacramento. They don't know what to believe. They go to Zillow and find listings that are sold, and to Trulia to find listings that are not on the market, and even Realtor.com has some time l...
The housing market in Sacramento has taken a swing in October that is very unusual for this time of year. Last October, we had 3,397 listings for sale and today it's down to 2,773, but the really unusual numbers are the sold homes to date as compared to this same period last month. There is a 75%...
Sometimes I ask sellers if they would like me to hold on to their accepted offer for a few hours just in case another offer comes in. Because once I send it to the buyer's agent, it is delivered and they are in contract. This can happen on a Sunday, for example, when we receive an offer before th...
I just realized I put the word trump into the heading of my blog, and I can't seem to avoid that ugly word no matter where I go, LOL. I'm writing today about being content, at peace with the world and within yourself, and being able to sleep well at night because your life is basically stress fre...
I have not read anything about how the new website Peeple will impact real estate agents, but I am already easily imagining the horrible fallout from this monstrosity. What budding entrepreneuers will do to make a buck these days does not surprise me. What astonishes me is the number of people wh...
