Sacramento real estate and housing market, from Galt to Lincoln. Local observations about Sacramento restaurants, special events, music concerts and the Sacramento lifestyle, including great places to vacation around the world.



Not every seller is cut out to do a short sale. It takes a certain breed. Because there are never any guarantees. What a bank did yesterday it might not do tomorrow. So, if some supposed Sacramento short sale agent tells you he or she knows exactly what will happen, you better run like the wind. ...
I was reading a client response letter this morning. My former client wrote, "Elizabeth was excellent and made our short sale process so much better than it could have been. We have heard horror stories . . . " And it made me wonder how does she really know how awful it could have been? I try not...
It is not my job to make people put their homes in Sacramento on the market as a short sale. They either want to sell or they don't. Sometimes, I get calls from a spouse, for example, who wants me to talk the other spouse into selling. Sometimes, people aren't ready to sell even when they believe...
You want to hear something insane? I ducked into Taylor's Market in Land Park this weekend for a quick stop to buy veggies. I wasn't buying enough stuff to require a cart or a hand-held basket, and I was in a hurry. So, I piled the veggies into my arms, rushed to the cash register to dump them, a...
Which would you rather wake up to? Rebuild your email database or cat puke? It's a tough decision, but I think I'm gonna go with ishy, squishy cat puke between the toes. I try to keep my deleted emails under control but that danged Equator No Reply fills it up quickly. That's because Equator now ...
Imagine you're having dinner at a restaurant. You've finished your meal and are awaiting for dessert when your cell phone rings. So, you excuse yourself from the table, grab your cell and head out to the parking lot to talk. When you come back to your table, everybody is gone, the table is cleare...
I imagine today will start out in a frenzy and slowly fizzle out right after lunch. Many holiday weekends are like this as people prepare to go out of town. Some people are already gone as they turn a 3-day weekend into a 4-day weekend. My assistant is one of those people. I panicked because she ...
You might be wondering about the real estate market in Sacramento. The truth is it's way better to be a seller in Sacramento right now than to be a buyer. But that doesn't mean if you're a seller and a buyer that you're hosed. Be happy that you're not living in New Delhi where the monkeys are run...
Part of what makes a person a successful real estate agent is learning how to read other people and adapt to their needs. Not everybody is the same. For example, yesterday I had to drive over to Mercy Hospital in East Sacramento to get an offer signed. The seller had just finished performing a C-...
I don't know much about front-loading washing machines except that they use less water (which is great for our environment) and are horribly expensive. I know even less about whether I can stop the machine mid-cycle and open the door. Wouldn't water run all over the floor? But this is something o...
