DISCOUNT em or leave em?

What is it about commissions that gets people sooooo excited?  
When you talk about discount commissions with Sellers, does it get their attention?  Absolutely!  Do they love it?  Absolutely!  Especially in this current 2013 Seller's market that we are now experiencing here in the Sacramento Valley.  
Well, that's just dandy, but boy it irritates the Selling Agents.  And they surely don't hesitate to express their dislike and disapproval about them.  What makes the Sellers (who love it) different from the Selling Agents (who don't).....aren't they similar to Buyers and … (21 comments)

sacramento real estate: HARP Schmarp...where's The Beef, or is it a Real Deal? - 02/20/12 06:45 AM

HARP is now obsolete and has been replaced by HARP 2.0.  
Hmmmm....what is this?  A new software, a fancy coffee/latte maker, or worse yet another government band-aid?! The “Administration” is supposedly all about helping the American people, but does this truly help, or just bring more hardship down the line?
First, you must not be delinquent on your mortgage. You must be able to qualify just as you would for a typical mortgage, i.e., income, credit, debts, etc. You must be asking what is the point, right? HARP 2.0 is for homeowners who meet the above, but are … (0 comments)

sacramento real estate: A Realtor's "Dear Jane" letter to a Wishy Washy Buyer - 09/28/11 12:49 PM
A Realtor's "Dear Jane" letter to a Wishy Washy Buyer
Dear Buyer,
When we mutually agreed to work together, I “assumed” that meant a “working” relationship.  Meaning you give me a list of parameters that you establish for your purchase and I help you meet those parameters.   What I mean by this is that if you tell me that you….
A)     already own a home and that you’re wanting an investment property, then I understand that to mean that you want to get a “deal” and not offer above list price the first hour on the market.
B)      don’t care … (4 comments)

sacramento real estate: Fellow Agents .... friends or foes? - 09/08/11 07:32 AM
Fellow Agents .... friends or foes?
Are you a friend or foe?  What would you do to help a fellow agent?  Anything, nothing, go out of your way NOT to help?  I suppose it all comes down to being sure about who you are and how you feel about others in general, right?
Allow me to explain; yesterday, as I was perusing AR I found a very informative, interesting and enlightening page from a local Sonoma Realtor.  Interestingly, it was the first blog I read, and matter of fact I couldn’t stop reading her blogs because I really … (8 comments)
