Elizabeth Weintraub: Sacramento Real Estate

Real Estate Agent - RE/MAX Gold - DRE #00697006
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.



A Sacramento real estate agent asked me yesterday if he could send buyers to see a home by themselves, without him as an escort. He said he had something else incredibly important to do, I imagine, so he could not personally show the home to his buyers. You know, when I'm so busy or otherwise eng...
Why do Sacramento short sale agents cancel a short sale? I do not know. It's not a practice that I follow. My clients will sometimes give up on a short sale but I do not. Early in my short sale experiences, back in 2005 or 2006, I ran into a couple of situations that I regret giving up on because...
I was shocked when I pulled up the stats in MLS this morning to look for Davis short sales. There are only two short sales in all of the Davis homes for sale. At any price. I had a lengthy conversation with the second lender yesterday for a short sale in Davis. At one point, we had an offer but t...
I took this tenant aside last night and confided: "Real estate agents can be pushy." I could tell by the way he was standing that he did not want me in his house. Erect, at attention. Arms folded. Steely eyes. I was there because the seller needs to put this short sale rental on the market. I had...
I tell my clients in Sacramento to do exactly what I just did. If you've got a piece of furniture to sell, just snap a photo with your cellphone, plop that picture into CraigsList and sell that thing. I decided to get sell my dining room table because I bought a new table that will seat more peop...
I did a spot news interview yesterday with Ben at Channel 13 in my front yard in Land Park. The TV crew popped by to see what I thought about a Bay area investor buying 1,000 homes in Sacramento. I loaded them with stats from Trendgraphix that showed how we had more than 10,000 homes for sale 5 y...
The thing about working day after day on short sales is you learn stuff changes day after day. Nothing stays the same. What was true yesterday is not true today. Short sale sellers don't always understand this but a Sacramento short sale agent has no choice. If you don't go with the flow, you'll ...
I work with people from all walks of life in Sacramento, but I draw the line at the looney tunes. You know which ones I'm talking about. The people with a screw loose. And that accounts for about 50% of the people lately who call this Sacramento short sale agent. Why am I attracting these people?...
I got to watch the space shuttle fly over my back yard in Land Park yesterday as I was working on a Sacramento short sale. The space shuttle Endeavor was riding atop a modified Boeing 747. All of a sudden the ground shook, a giant shadow passed over my house, and a loud noise rattled my eardrums....
My husband gets very uncomfortable when he spots me staring at walls. Or ceilings. Or floors. Because he knows what I am thinking. OK, he doesn't know exactly what I'm thinking but he knows it has something to do with home improvements, and that makes him uneasy and uncomfortable. It means that h...
