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.



I received an email this morning from a member of Active Rain in Florida. She says I am the only agent she could find who talked about silent mortgage insurance on short sales. You know, the banks that take out a mortgage insurance policy, generally on a second mortgage, years after escrow closes...
The problem with closing so many escrows is my inventory dwindles. Happy sellers, yes. But if I keep this up, I'll be out of business! This happened because I went to Hawaii for 3 weeks and asked my potential new sellers if they minded waiting for me to get back. If they didn't want to wait, I co...
We went to the 24th Street Theatre in Curtis Park over the weekend to see Country Joe McDonald perform a 100-year tribute to Woody Guthrie. Most people agree that Woody Guthrie was born on July 14, 1912. This would make July the 100th anniversary of his birth. Country Joe was born on January 1, 1...
I do not adjust to time zone changes well while traveling. Hate the fall-forward and fall-back time changes, too. These things throw me out of whack. Don't even talk to me about going to Europe. I can do all of the things the experts suggest: set my watch ahead, drink plenty of fluids, avoid alco...
I give most people the benefit of a doubt. Even if I initially suspect a person of wrong doing, I believe it's only fair to cut them a break. After all, who among us hasn't messed up at some point or another in our lives? Thank goodness we aren't in politics, is all I have to say. Look at Assembl...
If you want to know how much it costs to stay at a luxury resort in Hawaii, here is the formula. Take what sounds like a somewhat reasonable expenditure and triple it. For example, if you would be willing to pay $5.00 for a can of Coke to quench your thirst, then you should be willing to spend $1...
One slick way to pull in buyers, I've gotta hand it to Hualalai Realty. I suppose some people would call it false advertising, but I would like to have our reservation at the Four Seasons Hualalai renewed next year, so I'm not gonna gripe.I will say that when I saw Real Estate Tour included on my...
The first thought that crossed my mind was how glad I was that we were not staying at the Hilton Waikoloa. From the lobby, I could see the tram car loading passengers and blocking the entrance to the pool. This place is enormous. People were everywhere. Standing in lines. Standing in lines to reg...
I don't profess to know much about the South. Except, they talk funny. They probably think we from the North talk funny. The North is where TV news reporters go to learn how to speak. True fact. When I was a kid, my mother said the reason Southerners have a drawl is because it is too hot most of ...
Let's just jump right into 2012, shall we? I imagine it's my kickback, low-key vacation that made me say that to an agent yesterday. While others are nursing champagne hangovers, I'm dealing with offers on my short sale listings while still on vacation in Hawaii. We changed hotels yesterday and a...
