Before you say to yourself, oh, there she goes again, picking on investors while she's sticking up for homeowners in Sacramento, let me preface this by saying it's not true. I do not pick on investors. While it is true that I support home ownership in Sacramento, and I prefer to see neighborhoods...
I love to give my clients help when staging a home and getting it ready for the market. That's one of the things I do really well. I can envision how a home should look and what will give it its greatest appeal. Not every home needs to be staged, and if it doesn't, I tell them that, too. I find m...
When HAFA short sales first hit the scene in Sacramento, it was not uncommon to get many of these short sales rejected. That's because there were really no hard rules published about what will qualify a seller for a HAFA short sale. There were general guidelines for eligibility, but being eligibl...
A seller in Granite Bay expressed interest yesterday in possibly selling her spacious two-story home near Douglas Ranch. The problem is she wants a home in the seven-hundred range to be worth at least $900,000 to maybe a million. And why not? Everybody wants to make a profit from an investment, e...

We are visiting my husband's family in Sun City Hilton Head South Carolina. Driving into Sun City is like driving into a plush resort. Not quite the same thing as, say, Sun City Lincoln. But then I imagine Sun City Hilton Head most likely attracts retirees from all over the country. I don't know ...
We landed in Savannah really late and barely made our dinner reservation at The Sapphire Grill before they stopped serving. We changed planes in Atlanta, but it was still a super long flight from Sacramento. If I'm gonna fly that far, you'd think I would be waking up in the islands, and this morn...
I know agents who were relieved when Fannie Mae had set up an escalation process for value disputes. I know, as a Sacramento short sale agent myself, I was pretty pleased to see a website established and a process put in place to address this monstrosity that seems to be taking over short sales a...
You're probably not seeing this phenomenon yet in the real estate stats for Sacramento, but I'm telling ya that short sales are declining and equity sales are rising, and you can take that to the bank. I analyzed MLS a few days ago to see how many short sales were available and there were fewer t...
