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 often refer to things that are distasteful and I wish would go away as a PITA, and I'm not talking about baking bread. The secret to living a happy and stress-less life, of course, is to get rid of stuff one would call a PITA -- unfortunately, the PITA generally comes with two legs and a set of...
UC Davis Med Center in Sacramento used to lease its MRI equipment, and they were set up to receive patients in the parking lot, inside a manufactured home, of all things. But the hospital has come a long way since then, and it now owns the MRI equipement, which you would hope brings down the cost...
After 40 years in the real estate industry, I have learned that there is no way in hell a buyer should ever let a seller make a repair on a home in Sacramento. I mean, think about it. You've got a seller who is moving out of that home, never coming back, who no longer has any interest in the home...
Remember that Cool Hand Luke movie? What we have here is a failure to communicate. Have you ever run across a person who, regardless of what you say, takes it the wrong way or builds it into a federal case against you? Every so often, I meet one of those, but it's not a regular thing, thank goodn...
I think they call it they call it the Homeless Person Syndrome when real estate agents worry that the market could drop out of the market and they'd end up living under a bridge in a cardboard box.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that some Sacramento home buyers are undeserving little snots, but hey, why not? Maybe I would. You know the type. The seller might bestow upon the buyers many thousands of dollars from the seller's very own pocket to close escrow because the buyers don't have enoug...
An agent in Sacramento interrupted my weekend activities with his phone call, all excited that his "client" had an urgent desire to present an offer on my listing that is pending. Granted, it's pending short lender approval because it's a short sale, but that listing status in Sacramento means th...
The only way most buyer's agents in Sacramento will show a short sale is if there is nothing else for sale. However, even in the midst of low inventory like our spring housing market in Sacramento, buying a short sale is not high on a buyer's list of desired priorities. That's because most home b...
My team members generally enjoy an edge in writing purchase offers that tend to get accepted in Sacramento because they do what it takes. Every so often we run across a situation in which a seller prefers another offer, but it's generally pretty rare. That's because we enjoy a good reputation and...
My mother used to dress me like Shirley Temple singing the Good Ship Lollipop when I was a kid. I had dimples and long hair spun with rags into ringlets. But no sooner did she put me into a dress than I managed to tear it or get it filthy doing something I was probably not allowed to do. Not only...
