With some homes in Sacramento, it's very easy to manipulate the situation in order to sell a home for more than list price. Of course, an obvious way to do that is to price the home low, below market value, and try to stir up a feeding frenzy, but that kind of strategy can also backfire. Many hom...

Asking a person to make your situation whole again because a person said no to you is crazy nuts, but it doesn't seem to stop people from making stupid requests. When you hang out with mostly normal people all day, which includes other real estate agents in Sacramento, one tends to overlook the f...

I hear this at times from buyers: it's not worth what you're asking, as though an opinion from the peanut gallery holds any water in Sacramento real estate. For starters, home buyers are not experts. They often barely tour only a handful of homes in Sacramento before making an offer, and at that ...

As Barbara and I were sitting in the front row, watching The Yardbirds run onto the stage last, we spotted an older heavy-set fellow with a cane, slowly making his way to the microphone.

We have characters in Midtown, people who are homeless but have become such an institution in certain neighborhoods, such a part of the landscape, that they are regarded as part of the community by residents. It's not uncommon for people who live in Midtown to know the names and habits of many ho...

A potential new resident of Sacramento called from the Midwest last night to talk about a possible relocation to Sacramento. I listened to her describe needs, where she lives now, her expectations of a home, things that would drive her crazy if she doesn't have them, the type of job she is interv...

Last month I said goodbye to my brother, and this month it looks like our diabetic cat Pica is not going to make it much longer. We have him on buprenorphine to ease his pain. I read a web article that says buprenorphine is 30 times more powerful than morphine. We are still fighting with the IRS ...
