In my circle of friends are a couple of missionaries from Canada who volunteer at the University of Nations here in Kona. Two of the nicest, sweetest and most caring individuals I have ever known, but then again, I can't say I know any other missionaries. Also, just because I am not a spirtual no...
One of my favorite neighborhoods in Midtown is where Craftsman Row (some call it Bungalow Row) is located. The location is ideal because the traffic is somewhat less than other areas, the streets are wider, and it's still far enough away from Business 80 so you don't hear much of the freeway. A r...
This is a short sale I started to work on last summer, and it's taken all of this time to get it closed. People always ask me why the banks are so bad when it is not the banks who cause the problem. The problem with all of these short sales that cannot close is buyers walk away right in the middl...
One of the most emotional things for a seller to hear during a listing appointment is when his Realtor tells him he can't get what he wants for the property. Sellers often have one reality and then there is the market to contend with. There is also the fact homeowners tend to become complacent. T...
Lately, I've been working with a lot of Sacramento sellers in bereavement. Some grieve because their previous agent could not sell their home, sure, but the bulk of those in grief have lost somebody they love. So that's why they are now selling the house. Real estate can produce a lot of anxiety ...
Even my hairdresser installed a Ring doorbell. She was very excited to show me videos of UPS guys dropping off packages on her cellphone. This seemed like an odd reason to fork out two hundred bucks for a video doorbell. But then, when you think about it, it's not the UPS guys you're worried abou...
While an iPhone will work in a pinch to snap photos of flowers, people and other stationary things, wildlife is a whole 'nother story. I mean, I can sit on my lanai for hours and watch the geckos but try taking a picture of one. They won't wait for you to get close enough. Zooming doesn't really ...
I am such a sucker for historic homes. Perhaps it's because I didn't much appreciate or see the value when I was younger. They were just houses. A place to live. (This is what happens, perhaps, growing up in the suburbs, ewww, it's not new.) But then one day you realize how significant these olde...
All righty, I admit it; I can be prone to falling in love with a home just as much as the next guy. Even though I'm a professional and should be able to separate my lust for a house from reality, every so often a home comes along on the market that challenges that assumption. I start having thoug...
From a buyer's point of view, I imagine the NACA Program looks pretty darned cool. Bad Credit? NACA don't care. Don't make enough money to meet income requirements? NACA don't care. Haven't got a down payment or closing costs? Hey, NACA don't care.From a seller's point of view, the over-the-top r...
