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.



Not all of my real estate transactions and short sales in Sacramento involve luxury homes. In fact, it's very much the opposite these days because of the way the market is -- most of the action in Sacramento is at the low end. Just pick up the Sunday newspaper and look at all of the real estate s...
Some people would consider me an impatient person but you can't be impatient and sell Sacramento short sales. So, I would say those people are mistaken. I have a lot of patience. I tell that to negotiators, too, when they call and apologize for taking so long to find the answer they are seeking w...
Luxury home short sales are handled a bit differently than an entry-level short sale. When you're selling a million-dollar-plus home, and that home sale involves two loans, you just know the second lender is really taking it in the shorts. Hence the name short sale. The second lender eats it, big...
I got the chance over the holiday weekend to experience a little bit of snow. OK, it was watching a few flakes fall from the sky and melt before hitting the ground from within the confines of a warm home with the heat on, but still, it counts. They were snowflakes. And it made me think about shor...
We could not entice any of our relatives to come with us to Alinea Restaurant while we were in Chicago. That's because my inlaws are normal people. Grounded individuals who live in the real world. They are not on a search for carmelized honey or Chartogne-Taillet Brut, and they would not consider...
I am busy running out the door of the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago to catch our flight home to Sacramento. But before I leave, I thought you would like to see my photo of a dinosaur named Sue. It seems apt to meet a dinosaur named Sue after going to see The Million Dollar Quartet at The Apollo Thea...
Not only does a Sacramento short sale agent need to manage a short sale 24 / 7, but the agent also needs to clean up the mess created by the short sale bank's Point of Contact, the POC. I suspect many banks are tired of trying to work on short sales that they say short sale agents mess up. It's p...
There are certain types of the year that regardless of how much we might like dislike people we instead pretend that we do. It's kind of like an American custom in a way. Neighbors you haven't spoken to in years, you still wave to these people on holidays like Thanksgiving. But probably not for t...
First, let me say that I need to appease my friends on Active Rain who I know are concerned every time I post a blog that suggests I am not at home in Sacramento. They worry that somebody will sneak over to my house in Land Park and throw eggs at the window. Or burn it down. Or steal the cats and...
I am so happy to see Thanksgiving around the corner. In part, because I am thankful to have made a good living this year selling short sales in Sacramento. Yup, I know it sounds crazy to say I am happy that I am a Sacramento short sale agent, given all of the craziness inherent with this professi...
