One of the drawbacks for me with the way Zillow imports data from MLS is my name needs to be first on the listing. I really prefer my team member's name to be first so he or she can directly manage the buyer calls. However, with my name first in MLS, I get hit with all the drama, spammers, can-I-...

Don't get me wrong, there are times when a lowball is called for. Like, when the property is grossly overpriced. I recall maybe 15 years ago writing an offer for a buyer on a home in Land Park. It was listed around a million and my buyers got the place for about $600K. Today it is easily worth mo...

In Sacramento, our hot seller's market has existed for almost 7 years. That has been a long stretch. And during that stretch of time, interest rates have been historically low. They've been low for at least 10 years now, so of course buyers want to know when they will go lower.Usually, those who ...

A month or so back, I recall reading something in the Sacramento Bee about the Oriental fruit fly invasion into Sacramento. Apparently, over by Stockton and Elder Creek, authorities found a handful of Oriental fruit flies. They put up 600-some bait stations to kill off the males and stop breeding...

Everybody holds the power to be truly authentic in their work, family and personal relationships. Yet, I am continually amazed at all of the excuses I hear for not employing that power. In fact, some real estate agents go so far as to hide their own personality behind a mask. A mask that they thi...

The unsung tale in the September housing report in Sacramento is the bulk of inventory in the upper end range. Looking at August numbers, in the $800+ range, we had 5 to 7 months of inventory, which is not reflected in this chart. Our September inventory overall, in the chart above, shows 2.4 mon...

Yesterday an email came through targeting 50 agents in Sacramento. They seem to all be top producers but hard to say how that list was pulled. The agent who created the list did not even take the time to group all the names into one contact list, so he exposed every recipient's email address.The ...

Remember when Dorothy of Oz found the Tin Woodman all rusted out in the forest? She grabbed an oil can and started oiling his joints, slowly restoring speech and movement. Well, when you reach the age of 65, you know what I'm talking about. All of these pesty little aches and pains begin to appea...

Working in the real estate business since the 1970s has given me a unique perspective on homebuying that few agents possess. I've witnessed first-hand so many different markets and have survived the dips, ebbs and tides of real estate. There is always a way to buy a home in any given market. We a...

Every 3 cubic yards of extra trash costs only $143.20 in Sacramento, apart from a base rate of $179 for the first 3 cubic yards of rubbish. The container itself is a bag and measures 30 inches high, 48 inches deep and 96 inches wide. That can hold a lot of stuff. Like up to 3,300 pounds of crap o...

My husband is not a guy who likes change. As we get older and more set in our ways, change is difficult for many people. Then there are the people who like changes simply because it shakes up things, makes life different, offers variety, a chance to explore, learn, grow. And you can bet which dir...

Shut your eyes for a minute. Imagine you are traveling back through centuries - long before white man had the audacity to show up and begin shuffling around the New World. You look at your hands - they are brown.  They may be weathered; but perhaps not.  In your right hand is a long conical stone...

There is your Sacramento Realtor, hanging out between the A and M in the Sacramento logo for our Farm to Fork Festival. And that thing behind me? Looks like a helicopter, right? Pretty space agey, high-tech.Since my husband works at the state, we have free parking for these events, but we could h...

The olden days of selling short sales can change an agent. Why, I know some agents who would not step foot into a short sale property, especially if it wasn't maintained. They did not want to climb over piles of toys, clothes, papers strewn all over the floors. And the attitude hasn't much change...

After crawling through crap the last few days, I am very happy to present my stunning new listing in Arden Manor. It's always such a pleasure to take a listing when there is nothing in the home I could improve. No furniture to move. No odds and ends to dispose of. Nope, everything is picture perf...

The real estate market in Sacramento is starting to feel like two divided groups of people. Where have you heard this before? Sellers have not quite realized our seller's market is over and still think they can attract wild prices. Buyers expect to negotiate and they want a good deal. Very opposi...

You hear more talk about buyer's closing costs and not seller's closing costs in Sacramento. Most likely because the difference between the two is pretty basic. The buyer generally takes money out of her savings account to close escrow. She needs to deposit usable funds into escrow. On the other ...

Yup, that is a photo of me 22 years ago building the first and only garage I've ever built. My husband did not want to build a garage but he also did not want to pay twice as much (or more) to hire a contractor. Besides, I had presented compelling evidence that it was not difficult to build a gar...
