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.



Every good thing must come to an end at some point to allow room for something else, and the end of AMC's Breaking Bad, coupled with the slowing of Sacramento short sales, seem to coincide. I was thinking about that yesterday when I drove to a home near Elk Grove to meet with the sellers, a charm...
I appreciate it when my clients ask me if it's OK to call at certain times, but the fact remains if they are calling Sacramento real estate agents and those agents pick up the phone, then it's probably OK. Then the questions often center on what time is it OK to call? When is too early in the mo...
I suppose if you've just had dental crowns cemented on your front teeth, that repeating the alliteration: selling homes in Sacramento is stupendous would make you sound like a snake cornered by a dog. My girlfriend just got dentures, and she's having a terrible time talking. I suggested she pract...
I don't know any REALTORS who really like participating in a listing presentation and trying to win that listing for, say, a Carmichael pool home, for example. It's a little disasteful because often a REALTORĀ® is judged on criteria based on ignorance. However, if a seller doesn't have a referral ...
Schadenfreude is not a practice to which I subscribe, as I really do not find enjoyment in another person's misfortune. I find it sad if people are hurting, even if it's people I don't much care for because maybe they were not very nice to me. I don't wish bad things on them. I don't make voodoo ...
It seems that many real estate agents struggle with the issue of home inspections, including health and safety issues, yet every real estate agent alive today will tell a buyer to get a home inspection, if they know what's good for their real estate license. It's also important for a home buyer t...
Most real estate agents in Sacramento are not about to ask a home buyer if the buyer is really serious about buying a home. I suspect they don't feel it's any of their business. It becomes their business, though, if the buyer ends up canceling the transaction because the buyers' intentions were n...
A client's daughter moved out of a condo I sold in Woodside Sierra last month and into an apartment in Old Sacramento, right above the American River Bike Trail. She said she can see the river from her bed. It seems like it would be a lot of fun to live in Old Sacramento because it would be like ...
This Sacramento real estate agent works best under pressure. I don't know how agents handle it with hours of spare time at their disposal because I'd probably go nuts. I love to be busy and active. Fortunately, for me, I have a high interest in real estate and a mad passion for it. Some people ar...
Some people might wonder why I would write about a short sale that was denied because it's not a way to attract business. I write about it because it's so rare to have it happen. It's like a bolt of lightning striking your home. Just not gonna happen during your run-of-the-mill rainstorm. It's pr...
