Hello Everyone, I just recently received a offer form a local broker in the Vallejo area and she was charging her buyer client a $699.00 FEE to do there paperwork. Did you know that agent is already being compensated to do this by the seller?  I have been selling homes in Vallejo CA 18 years and have never seen something that shrewd. We as Realtors have a duty to look out for the community during there home purchase  "Not" take advantage of a first time home buyer.  I mentioned to that Broker "Hey" why are you charging a ridiculous fee like that and of coarse all it did was make her angry. So next time your making a Vallejo CA home purchase make sure your representation is not charging you for anything because they should not be and if they are legally I suppose they could but there are...

Dear Friends Clients and future Clients, So as you have probably been seeing and hearing ( social media) the realtors bragging about selling a home in 6 minutes, before it went on market and so on claiming how great they are. These posts really says one thing that they did a disservice to the seller by not marketing the property for a least a week thru a weekend. The reason they should have was because during that time it was normal to receive 5 or sometimes 10 offers in Vallejo and basically that means all the other buyers were shut out and would/could have wrote a better offer because of the competition. Well those times are gone but thats the way it was for those agents who either double ended the sale or sold to there best Realtor buddy which is unfortunate but the real truth. Now l...

Our friends from the Solano Pickleball Club invited our Elk Grove group to join them for a big party at Allan Witt Park to celebrate two of their member's birthdays and their brand new courts.  Their club is always so gracious.  They treated us to some really tasty food and, more importantly, some very spirited, but friendly competition. And take a look at the courts.  They are fantastic!  We like the club and the courts enough that we are already planning our next trip back.  It is an hour's trip each way from Elk Grove so you know we must have enjoyed the experience.I hope to see you out there one of these days...SOON! ! !Other Pickleball ParksOasis Park-Elk Grove, CARush Park-Citrus HeightsEastern Oaks-Sacramento

 Dear friends, Inventory has been the lowest right now since my 14 years selling homes in Vallejo. We also have the lowest mortgage rates in the past 14 years as well so its a great time to be a seller here in Vallejo. Realtor.com says about pricing nationwide “Sellers are calling the shots in today’s market; prices are rising and housing inventory is vanishing almost as fast as it appears,” Danielle Hale, realtor.com’s chief economist, said in a statement.  Contact Tim Garton 707-315-5555 with any Vallejo CA real estate questions.
