Last week I accidentally overheard a conversation between a potential buyer an a buyer's agent. The buyer was extremely rude, although I'm not sure she meant to be. Her conversation led her to this conclusion: "Let me remind you there are a lot of preforeclosure experts on Zillow; I can call any ...

Sure, Imelda Marcos was a criminal who stole a lot of money, but she will always be remembered for her shoes. When she was forced to flee the Phillipines, it was reported she left behind more than 3,000 pairs of shoes. Some reports indicated 7,500 pairs of shoes, to which she famously clarified, ...

After the open houses today, we begin the countdown to Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Year. This is the time of year in Sacramento that our real estate market typically slows down. Buyers are not as active in the winter months, but when they have to buy a home, they need to purchase a ho...

Trying to combat some of the misinformation in the real estate industry is like trying to explain how a leader of the free world can make up stuff when so few seem to care. It's like if one repeats a lie often enough it starts to sound like the truth. Which is why it's very annoying when a seller...

In our MLS system in Sacramento, we are not allowed to market a property before it is published in MLS, unless we obtain an MLS waiver. But that doesn't stop the sellers from chatting with neighbors or the real estate brokerage from circulating listings internally prior to publication, among othe...

Who is most likely to sue in a California real estate transaction? I've seen statistics that point to the buyers. Most sellers are getting a big ol' pile of money at closing, so they usually don't have much to complain about. One of the reasons I love working with sellers is it's very easy to kee...

Don't ask me where this sign was located in Sacramento or which company because I didn't take the photo, my team member Josh did. He often sends me cute photos of places he goes. Generally it's places like the top of El Capitan in Yosemite or the bottom of river gorges in Idaho, not the front yar...

It is really tough to find the middle ground where one needs to take up residence when explaining the real estate market to Sacramento sellers. On the one hand, I don't sugarcoat anything. I give it to my potential clients straight and explain what has happened, what is happening now and what is ...

Home buyers in Sacramento know something is changing in our real estate market, but they are not sure what that means to them, exactly. Some interpret the change to mean they can make crazy lowball offers, which they always can if they can find an agent to pursue that strategy. Others need to buy...

What I reiterate in my personal blog about today about the journey to Sacramento from Kona will not apply much, I predict, in the future. Primarily because Alaska Airlines now has flights directly to Sacramento from Kona. Hawaiian Airlines does not. Hawaiian flies to Maui and to Oahu but not dire...

Could not resist this adorably cute photo I shot at the Kona Bark Park yesterday. The pooch on the left is some sort of rare breed that my friend Linda rescued. When she adopted Honey Bun, the dog was afraid of everyone. Now, a few years later, she suffers only from separation anxiety, so Linda t...

While I dislike dealing with passwords, I now password-protect just about everything. In fact, I just discovered yesterday that my website has protocols that only 30% of the other websites have, which caused my VPN to block it. The company that hosts my website is fairly advanced. So the hosting ...

Why are these listings still here? This a question I have asked myself lately. We are priced at market value for the most part and no grabs. You might think it would be condition because today's buyers want remodeled, turnkey properties, with all the modern bells and whistles. None of this oak ca...

In talking with a woman in Kona last week, it made me ponder what people do with the title to their homes. This woman has been taking care of an elderly couple, and one of them died. The other might not be around for much longer, either. As payment for services this woman has rendered over the ye...

All Sacramento Realtors are not the same just like all Sacramento sellers are not the same. Every seller has a different agenda and method that she or he uses to go about picking an agent. Sometimes a seller will say, I am only interviewing one other agent. And when I ask who it is, the seller mi...

Apart from my thumb throbbing this morning -- I have iPhone thumb from pushing my home button too much, if you can  believe that; it is really sore -- the other nagging pain is the fact our purchase contracts tuck data on page 4 that should be on the front page. That data is whether the buyer wil...

Ductless AC or mini-split systems have been around for a while but I haven't really heard much about them until recently. Which is odd given the fact I live in a city like Sacramento where temperatures climb to 115 in the summer. Homeowners in some lower-income neighborhoods don't even have a win...

Sometimes, you just can't win by trying, but it does help to keep your priorities in focus. I do this by looking at the big picture and reassessing situations, especially when encountering out of area agents. It can be tough when that agent is representing the buyer because the agent does not kno...
