Many Sacramento, Carmichael, Arden Park people are having a hard time. Most cities and states are too. Clearly, we are in tough times. People are losing their homes and their jobs quicker than any of us can believe. Some people are pointing fingers, but quite frankly, I don’t find that very usefu...
I want to make sure I spread this around because it seems that every year, I run across some who is kicking themselves because they didn't apply to get their property re-assessed. With plummeting property values in Sacramento County, chances are your Carmichael or Arden Park Area home are assesse...
I’m tickled pink to report that our California Governor just signed Senate Bill 401. SB 401 provides additional relief to distressed homeowners by eliminating the need for them to suffer tax implications on distressed home sales.   In other words, if you have to short sale your home, if it was fo...
Unless you are in contract by the end of next week, say so long to the Federal first time buyers' tax credit, but fret not, because California just got it's game on and first time home buyers get the rest of the new to enjoy the state tax credit...it's a bit different, but still a mighty nice tr...

Matt was near his Arden Park home when he saw a house on fire, with no emergency services having arrived yet, and he attempted to save the person trapped inside.  You can read the story ...
Fair Oaks is kinda fancy when it comes to housing values. Much like Carmichael, a Fair Oaks address is not to be scoffed at :-) With both newer homes and much older homes, Fair Oaks maintains a level of sophistication that can't be beat. I've had some of my best study hours in the Fair Oaks Libra...
My home town of Carmichael is replete with great parks (Mission Avenue, the famous Carmichael Park, and lots of little ones too), great people and all the basic needs one could ask for. We don't have big shopping malls here, but I think that's why some people appreciate Carmichael as much as the...
