A Busy Week Ends With Dining in Midtown Sacramento

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

What a long week this has been. It seems like home buyers are out in droves, crawling around our limited inventory of listings in Sacramento and agents are calling to ask about withdrawn listings, if they're coming back to the market. One such listing from last year I get a lot of calls about, and I have been undecided about relisting it. The sellers, while nice enough people, don't appear motivated, and I've talked with their agent who is helping them on the other end, should their home ever sell, and she says there is nothing on the horizon for them, and their parameters are so specific it could be years before they find an acceptable place.

The sellers also restrict showings, have set demands that make it more difficult than it needs to be, and have not made any of the necessary improvements to sell. It was also overpriced, so I'm thinking there are too many strikes against that situation, and I will pass.

On another listing, we received a remarkable offer, which immediately set off my sensors because it was too good of an offer and had no explanation from the agent. The sellers, at my suggestion, sent a counter offer anyway and sure enough the buyers had bought a different home. The agent swears they weren't writing multiple offers, but come on, how does that happen otherwise?

I've been juggling a few offers this week, and then some. It's enough to think, hey, let's go out for dinner on Friday night, OK?

Sounds like January has been just as busy in Sacramento as it has been out here in Northern VA.  Today is my day to catch my breath.

They aren't writing multiple offers yet they bought another home?  Did it just drop out of the sky into their laps?
