Lately I've been noticing a bit of grumbling from sellers over questions asked by buyers. There seems to be a big uptick in buyer questions, which tells me that buyers might be even more cautious than we think. I know it takes them longer to make a decision in our changing Sacramento real estate ...

When I worked on short sales, back in the market crash days, I routinely received referrals from other agents in Sacramento. But that's because those agents had half a brain and did not want the madness that accompanies short sales. Plus, they knew I was a specialist in that area, and their clien...

If the Sacramento real estate market makes you feel like there's something happening here; what it is ain't exactly clear, then you've come to the right place. We're at the tail end of a long strange trip. What is wrong with me this morning, I can't stop the music, LOL. Every thought that pops in...

Don't you just love it when you are judged by the company you keep? Years back, one of my team members told me shortly after she became licensed that she felt embarrassed to be working in the profession, by the way some potential clients treated her. As though she was inconsequentional or replace...

As of this particular moment, I have no active listings in MLS. Yes, I have sold all of my inventory. Which is very unusual for me at any time of the year. Almost always I carry a few in inventory. In fact, can't recall the last time over the past 7 years of our seller's market that I've ever sol...

My first plan was the Cosumnes River hike.  I was trying to think of places not too far away from our home in Land Park where my husband and I could go on the Fourth of July. Just to get out into the glorious summer day. He really dislikes driving long distances over holidays. The drivers irritat...

Nobody wants to come right out and admit that our market in Sacramento is changing. That causes alienation and confusion among sellers and buyers. However, I felt the tide begin to move away from a seller's market in May. It doesn't mean all hell is breaking loose as shifts in the marketplace are...

My real estate practice as a top listing agent in Sacramento is to actively market, in part by also targeting Bay Area buyers and their respective agents. According to an article published last month in the Sacramento Bee, we should see a surge of Bay Area buyers this summer, most likely carrying...

This year we had to pick which weekend we would not hold an open house for the Fourth of July weekend. Most July 4th weekends are easy to define because they involve a 3- or 4-day weekend. This year, with the 4th of July happening smack dab in the middle of the week -- and thank goodness this is ...

Home sellers always want to know what they can do to make more money on the sale of their home. Some sellers might even be glued to a certain sales price, a number they roll over and over in their minds. Often, that number is not based on reality but on a future wish, a desire, a hope, a zestimat...

This morning a seller emailed to share her thoughts about the CMA I sent to her. This is the comparative market analysis, reflecting market conditions and suggesting a listed price. The seller felt the price was $100,000 too low, and said she really needs that extra $100K to move out-of-state, ev...

There are quite a few first-time home buyer programs available that will help buyers with closing costs. However, they generally add an extra layer to the mortgage process. Could involve attendng a class for first-time home buyers. And sometimes these loans need to be repaid at a future date.Not ...

When buying a home in Sacramento during a seller's market, it's not as easy as just writing an offer. Often, a buyer needs to "sell" herself to the seller. She may need to give the seller a better reason to choose her offer over other offers. One of the rules of sales is to avoid presenting infor...

This subject reminds me of sellers from last fall who refused a full price offer. They did it by countering the offer. Now, their home faced the freeway, of all things. You could watch from the front yard the big rig trucks and strings of cars whizzing by overhead. The location was noisy and visu...

In many ways, reviewing offers on a future date makes it much easier for a Sacramento listing agent and her seller. However, that tactic can also backfire in so many different ways, which is why I would like to discuss this concept today. It sounds very appealing to tell a seller she can list her...

Fortunately, for this Sacramento Realtor, my company, Lyon Real Estate, maintains 17 offices throughout the Sacramento region, so I can pop in to meet clients at any of them. However, I imagine in the next decade all of that will or probably should change. Brick and mortar is so 2005. At least no...

Even though we have an increase of inventory in Sacramento, demand seems to match. However, some homes in our incredibly hot seller's market are not selling. Why is that, do you think? I know everybody likes to say price, but it is not always price. Part of it is the expectations Millennials have...

When our refrigerator in Sacramento showed signs of losing its digital mind, it wasn't an easy thing to buy another refrigerator. Aside from a ton of options to weigh, width and height considerations, it would be nice, I figured, if the refrigerator lasted more than 9 years. They make them to wea...
