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.



You can't stop people from killing themselves. I'm not going all Kevorkian here. I'm actually thinking about the story in the Sacramento Bee this morning about protecting people from themselves. Not to try to understand how newspapers work, but I imagine the Sac Bee had an editorial meeting about...
I was all primed to write about investors who are buying short sales this morning when I received an email from a buyer's agent who is representing herself. She's trying to buy a short sale in Elk Grove. I have to share this. The agent said she was withdrawing an offer she made yesterday that was...
A producer from KCRA-TV Channel 3 is coming to my house tomorrow. She wants to film a quick news segment about short sales. She is certainly coming to the right place. Because one of the things she wants me to talk about is the importance of hiring a short sale expert vs. a regular real estate ag...
It's time for this short sale agent to change again. It's difficult to embrace change but to stay ahead of the competition, we need to do it. It's time to say goodbye to my Mac Pro and Leopard OS and hello to my new Mac Pro and Lion OS X. I can't believe I let Snow Leopard sneak in there on my la...
Some short sales will forever stick with this Sacramento short sale agent because the sellers are such delightful people. In the end, it's all about helping the seller. And sometimes I work with sellers whom I suspect would be raked over the coals if their situation fell into less than honorable ...
Some buyer's agents do not know that when a buyer and a seller sign a purchase agreement for a short sale listing, they have entered into a binding contract to buy a home. I don't really know why agents often treat a short sale like the red-haired stepchild, but it's a real transaction just like ...
There are times in which I will behave myself. Not always, you can count on that. But when it's important, I can manage to do it. I step up to the plate. And I pride myself on that ability. After all, I am a Sacramento short sale agent. This means in today's market I possess super powers. Don't b...
Every once in a while, I run into a client I have to reject. You'd think that as a successful Sacramento short sale agent I would want to work with everybody in Sacramento, but I don't. I don't respect people who would lie, cheat and steal. Sorry -- I'm not an asshole politician and I don't have ...
I get a lot of phone calls from buyer's agents in Sacramento asking me who the lender is on a short sale. They are wising up and realizing that not every agent in Sacramento who lists a short sale is likely to close that short sale except, perhaps, for me. So, their broker has given them a list o...
I was asked yesterday if an agent should tackle an FHA short sale or leave that type of short sale to the pros. For starters, I don't believe any seller should be held at the mercy of an agent learning how to do a short sale. The agent either has negotiated and closed a bunch of short sales or th...
