sacramento: Achieving the Dream of Home Ownership is a Struggle for Many Young Couples - 05/11/08 02:56 AM
Don't let anybody fool you; it's hard for some first-time home buyers to buy their first home. It's not as easy as some people make it sound. Oh, sure, sometimes buyers can get lucky and score a home right away -- especially if location and condition aren't that important, but the odds are it will take a while in Sacramento in the $200,000 - $250,000 market.
I am working with a wonderful young couple right now who have just submitted their 10th offer on a home in Sacramento. These are delightful people whom I will call Doug and Shereen, to protect … (8 comments)

Instead of shopping at cute boutiques or dining at out-of-the-way cafés, often I end up wandering the streets of a town to admire its picturesque homes, invariably with camera in tow.

sacramento: Hiring a Neighborhood Specialist - 11/16/07 01:58 AM
Before hiring a real estate agent, smart consumers interview the agent first. They ask how many homes in the buyer's target neighborhood has that agent sold. They find out if the agent lives in that target neighborhood and for how long. Because if a seller or a buyer has not hired a neighborhood specialist, they stand to lose. 
Sellers can lose because the listing lingers on the market. In Land Park several years, a home had been listed by out-of-area agents (several of them) between $900,000 and $1.3 million. Area agents called me when they saw my listing sign go up to … (14 comments)
