Our real estate market in Sacramento is shifting slightly. Now, instead of receiving 5 offers on every listing, we might get one offer, but it is still a darn good offer! First-time home buyers are still submitting offers, so that is good news. But most of those are in the lower price ranges.Some...
Flippers get attached to their project homes just like any other home buyer. They might even be more engrossed in the process because it represents a return on investment. It involves purchasing a home at a lower value, fixing it up, and then selling it to a first-time home buyer. To write an off...
There are some areas of Elk Grove where a home buyer can no longer purchase a home for less than half a million. Which is in stark contrast to the market crash years. What it tells me is whenever you can find a nice pocket of homes in a pride of ownership area at an affordable price, well, you sh...
About the third week in July, I noticed all my listings had gone into pending status. That rarely happens to this Sacramento listing agent. I'm generally good for one to two listings a week. And I never run out of them. There seems to be a never-ending supply.But then, a few short weeks ago, they...

But you hope it will somehow correct itself overnight without you lifting a finger to do anything at all. Like those coat hangers in the closet ...
Although it has been decades since I've had a concurrent closing that did not close on schedule, all it takes is that one lone wolf to mess up everybody's lives. Even when you double check with all involved in the transaction to make sure nothing can go wrong, some wiggly thing can cause all havo...
When my seller told me about the baby owls in the trees, I asked for a photograph. These are baby Western Screech Owls that live in Fair Oaks. The sellers also enjoy watching wandering deer who come to sit in the yard, right outside their kitchen window. And when I was there for my first visit, a...
What a beautiful Grand Colonial in Curtis Park, Sacramento. Finding homes with spacious square footage in Curtis Park is not an easy task, but this is such a home. It boasts more than 2,800 square feet, according to the Sacramento County Assessor. Yes, before you ask, there is a first-floor bedro...
