I knew the minute the caller said he had written an offer for one of my listings last night that he had not. One listing had just come back on the market, another was in Foothill Farms and that's not where this guy would want to move, and yet another is located in Natomas and it's very difficult ...

Often, the reasons buyers give when they cancel an escrow are generally not the real reasons they no longer want to buy a home in, say, Elk Grove. They get cold feet. They freak out over having to pay a mortgage. They question their own convictions at times. The most recent excuses I received fro...

One of the downsides of writing a post about California real estate disclosures, just so you know, is the fact that this blog will be found by For Sale By Owner sellers from southern California, including sellers in Carmichael represented by some doofus agent -- and you know the doofus are out th...

It's not often that I go out to parties in the middle of the week. In fact, it's rare for me to attend a party even on the weekend because I am such a workaholic, and I'd have to own up to a boatload of friends who would probably spend inordinate amounts of time celebrating as such, and I have no...

Yet, for some reason, I have been able to mostly overcome that sort of obstacle. I'd say 29 days out of 30 I go t...

Once I started Googling credit card fraud at hotels, I was amazed at what I learned. For example, so many of the reservation systems at hotels are run on older computers: rife with viruses and worms and all sorts of nasty stuff, including scammers ready to grab your personal information and run w...

Optimum timing. Those of us who are analytical and try to find the best times for the things we do in life often extend certain types of expository rationales to our professional interactions. Some things you learn from trial and error. Like, it might make sense to grab an airline ticket a year i...

Every time I see a buyer's agent advice to send comparable sales to the listing agent I cringe slightly because that's such an ignorant thing to do. There are other ways to get the point across than trying to explain to the listing agent how to do her job or by insisting that the buyer's agent ha...

The problem with some real estate agents who think they know everything is that they don't even know enough to realize they don't know everything. I certainly do not know everything about Sacramento real estate, even though I've been in this business for four decades. I learn something new all th...
