When I sign on to write my original blog content in the morning on my personal website, I often look at the stats that show some of my popular incoming search terms. Many of those searches are property addresses of homes for sale in Sacramento. I think I have figured out why home buyers are looking on my website for listings in Sacramento and not at some other place. Not only that, but some of the more fun searches are "whether a tennis ball explodes in the microwave" or "sacramento jury duty" or "Double Bubble vs. Bazooka." I write about everything, just about.People visit my website for all kinds of reasons, and while some of these people might not be in the market to buy or sell a home today, they may remember me when they are. It doesn't hurt to freely give people information and sh...

    So If You Have a bad window screen, maybe there is more than one that needs repair.       I hate to open a can of worms here but if you have a screen that is bad in one of your windows, maybe you should have them all looked at while we are here. I sure beats making a second trip out.   You will have less bugs inside too!

You can hire the wrong short sale agent. Especially in Sacramento where lots of agents are jumping on the short sale bandwagon. If you do, Fannie Mae will send your home to foreclosure instead of granting a short sale. It's the way of Fannie Mae. But first, let me share with you that a client said the nicest thing to me yesterday. Really touched my heart. We closed his short sale in Gold River in 8 calendar days. Actually, we closed one day early, because we were up against the sale date and there was no way to postpone the auction. I prefer to be early than late. He said: "Choosing you as my agent goes down as one of the smartest things I have ever done." I say we closed his short sale rather than I closed his short sale because, as a Sacramento short sale agent, I realize that no wo/m...

Sacramento Short Sales: The Wait To Buy Another Home After A Short Sale Was Recently Changed to 3 Years Sacramento CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Christina. Here is her question. "I just read your article Frequently Asked Questions about Short Sales. You mention that you can obtain another home loan two years after a short sale. Who are these lenders and how can I contact them? I have been looking but so far no luck. Everyone is insisting we must wait three years. I'd appreciate any information you can provide. Christina." We just heard back from our mortgage broker on this issue. Fannie Mae recently changed their guidelines for a loan after a short sale. (Since most lenders and loan programs follow Fannie Mae's Guidelines, that means that almost e...

Come take a video tour of Gold River, a stunning planned community on the banks of the American River, near Sacramento, CA. Over 3000 homes are set in separate "villages", each with it's own personality.  Miles of bike trails meander through the wooded greenbelts, connecting to the world-class American River Bike Trail along the adjoinging river parkway. Gold River has some of the best schools in Sacramento.  Gold River Discovery Center is an award winning K-6 school, tucked into a wooded village, bordering a park.  With access to the American River, science projects take on a new meaning!

Gold River prices seem to be holding their own.    There were 12 bank owned sales in 2009.  7 of the 12 were in Gold River Station.  Average days on market for these REO's was 24.  List price to sales price averaged 99.56%.  Seven of the 12 REO's sold at or above list price.  I found stats on the sale of one home sold in Gold River interesting.  It was short sale for 89 days.  Went short sale contingent 2 separate times.  Last list price was $323k.  Bank took it back and listed it for $339,900 and It sold in 15 days for over list price.

We are currently generating thousands of leads for the foreclosure market at a very good $/lead.  We have received feedback on these leads from our advertisers across the nation.  We are seeing great results for generating contactable leads, however, a common theme is that many are from unqualified, "unrealistic" buyers.  These leads will require extra effort from agents to qualify them and put the rest in a long-lead contact system.  The good news is - these buyers will eventually become qualified buyers - keep in touch with them.  In the mean time for those that need a higher percentage of shorter-lead contacts we are working on an investor campaign with a MicroSite as an addition to our LeadPro system. We are hoping to capture more qualified individuals looking for the "good real est...

The real estate market in Gold River in October shows how highly localized real estate markets are.  Gold River is doing quite a bit better than the areas around it. To take one example, overall in Sacramento County in Octber, over one third of the homes that sold were REOs ("bank repos").  But in Gold River, on the other hand, none of October's sales were REOs.  In fact, no foreclosures have sold all year in Gold River, or last year either.  However there are two foreclosures currently in inventory — this is 5% of the inventory, compared to approximately 20% of the active inventory for the whole county. Gold River's homes have kept their value reasonably well compared to other areas in Sacramento County as well.In the the January-October period in 2007, seventy-one units sold in Gold R...
