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.



An appraiser emailed yesterday to say how much he appreciates the fact that I respond to his inquires, and that I do so promptly. As a Sacramento real estate agent, I feel that I have a duty to help to support our Sacramento real estate market. By not responding to an appraiser request, I'm makin...
Some of us are simply twisted souls, I suspect, shiver me timbers. A couple of people I hung around with as a teenager reminded me recently that I had instigated church-going adventures in my younger years. I vaguely recall attending services at different churches just to see what they were like....
I can't show you photos yet, darn, because I haven't yet shot them. However, this real estate agent is dashing off to Elk Grove this morning to take photographs of a newly staged home for sale. I can't wait to see it. The sellers have been working on this home almost daily since last month, just ...
I am working with a set of sellers in Sacramento at the moment who don't like their buyer very much. Part of the reason is they read all sorts of preconceived notions into the things the buyer asks for, which are basically normal things any buyer would ask for but apparently not if these sellers ...
I don't know how many agents read the Parade issue last Sunday, specifically the Ask Marilyn column, but no matter how many times I read the question, I could not figure out why it wasn't directly answered. Some things in life are a mystery. I often spot errors in the Sacramento Bee, for example,...
The number of homes for sale in Elk Grove has jumped more than 67% since August of last year. It's more than doubled since spring of this year. The word is out that Elk Grove is a hot real estate market but, with an uptick in inventory, only the best homes will sell. This means that preparing yo...
It is very very rare for a Sacramento short sale not to be approved in today's market. An agent would have to deliberately mess up the short sale or not follow instructions to force a rejection. I realize, though, this covers a large percentage of agents, especially those who never do short sales...
A drawback -- if there is such an animal -- to being in the real estate business for as long as I have is clients tend to think an agent with decades of experience is capable of parting the Red Sea. I can do a lot of things that other Sacramento real estate agents cannot, but there are always exc...
Do you have WiFi? asked a cruiseship passenger, eyes wide. He had been trying to find an internet connection for days and could not. Every time he turned on his phone to look for a wireless connection, he found Elizabeth Weintraub's iPad. So did many other travelers onboard the Alaskan Dream. The...
If you have the option of a cruise through the Inside Passage coupled with a visit to Anchorage, my suggestion would be to visit Anchorage first and not last. It's a nice city, mostly rebuilt after flattened in the 1964 earthquake, but it's not a lifestyle centered on water like the Inside Passa...
