There is some kind of deal with my Mercedes where I get free GPS for 3 years, and then I think they try to find a way to charge for it. Everybody seeks subscription-based services today so they can charge you over and over. You own nothing. You lease everything.Which wouldn't be so bad if it was ...

Last week I wandered over to Planet Fitness on Stockton Blvd. in south Sacramento to check it out. I like this particular club because they are all over the country so I can workout regardless of where I am. That particular gym in south Sacramento is huge, bigger than the gym in Kona, yet despite...

Are you tired yet of reading about how many awards have been bestowed upon the Elizabeth Weintraub Team for our production last year? Every year it is pretty much the same. The players change a little bit in the competition, but it is still basically we are the #1 agent in the downtown office of ...

Years ago, when these start-up companies began springing up to capture real estate leads in northern California, I was a bit skeptical. After all, most of them were doing nothing more than forking out big bucks to buy SEO placement and advertising in hopes of capturing the eyeballs of sellers and...

All I can say is I am pretty lucky that my natural disposition is pretty easy going. Plans change? That's OK. I go with the flow, after all, I spend a considerable amount of time in Hawaii where the motto is expect the unexpected. I also actually thought I would simply "ease" back into being in S...

This photo is of the newly remodeled A330 First Class section on Hawaiian Airlines. Surprised me because I wasn't expecting it. Generally, it's one of the older models I hop aboard in Honolulu. The new remodel places pods, in groups of 2, three across. I probably would have noticed it on the seat...

When looking at the statistics for the Sacramento housing market in February of 2019, it is hard to find silver linings, which is what most brokerages try to do. They look for strong signs and focus on those. Which makes me think everybody will be talking about the pending sale numbers, but I lau...

Full disclosure, I did not attend the Lyon real estate awards for 2018 because they were held on March 1, 2019, and I am still in Hawaii, on my winter vacation. Every year, I stay a little bit longer in Hawaii. It started with a two week vacation one winter. Following year it was 3 weeks. Year af...

When I see people in sales professions working so hard to make a few sales that probably pay pittances, I can't help but wonder why they aren't in real estate. Maybe that's why, though. Because they are not confident enough in their own abilities to make it in a 100%-based commisson world. Maybe ...

Every time I sell a home facing the freeway in Sacramento, I am amazed. It is difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that buyers tend to prefer homes that are either newer or remodeled and don't seem to pay much mind to where they are located. Suppose it's because so many people go to w...

You don't have to monetize your website to make money in real estate, although, I don't disparage those who do. Nothing wrong with extra income. I know because although I've made a fortune selling a ton of real estate over the past 17 years in Sacramento, I also held a second job writing about ho...

Honestly, I know a lot of people who don't give a hoot about climate change because they a) won't be around when the world is destroyed, and b) they don't really understand it. They think oh, it's three degrees hotter, I can live with that. But they don't realize how many other living things cann...

You won't find very many Sacramento Realtors who wear only one hat. The reason is most of them can't afford to do it. If they stopped working with buyers, for example, and focused solely on sellers, they would lose half of their business. Or at least that's the way I figure they think. A fairly s...

When I withdraw a listing from MLS and re-enter it as a new listing, that is done for one purpose and one purpose only. To reset the days on market. I am not the only Sacramento Realtor who realizes how buyers tend to gravitate toward new listings and ignore older listings. A home can be on the m...

Not very surprised over the numbers on the Sacramento Housing Report for January, not even when I spotted the dip in our median home prices. The median price is the middle point between higher and lower numbers. It is indicative, in part, of the way we measure rising or falling markets.I have def...

Do you think it is hard to find a Sacramento listing specialist? I didn't think so, as I know a few outside of my practice, but my clients tell me otherwise. Although, the way I look at it, how many listing specialists do they need anyway? When they connect with an experienced agent with integrit...

Sometimes it is not price when a home has many showings yet no offers. Sometimes it is a unique home, meaning not odd but just different from all of the others. Especially if it has been designed for use by one particular type of person, say, maybe an artist. Or worse, a person who has too much m...

When you start out looking for a home to buy, you might be focused on a wide price range instead of narrowing your selections, and that's perfectly OK. You might say you initially would like to buy a home under a million, but closer to half a million is preferable. Well, that's a HUGE price range...

OK, this is the only photograph of I have of Lyon Real Estate's Midtown Sacramento office, and no, I do not think that person is dead. It's just how Midtown is. But I started my blog by talking about what happened when I woke up in Hawaii yesterday, and to find a photo of Lyon Real Estate with so...
