I am an optimist by nature, but our Elk Grove market has changed in a remarkably short time.For a little perspective, active listings were at 124 on 5/8/22.  Active listings are at 244 as of today (all those green dots in the picture).  It is a 96.7 rise in inventory over a very short time.  The supply change has come with a price drop of just over 3% month over month.  While our current supply is not out of line with our historic supply numbers, our market has turned on a dime.  The change started when the Fed decided to tighten.The Fed, "We have the tools for a soft landing when the time comes."  Obviously, they were wrong when we consider the loss of wealth recently in the stock market, bond market, cryptocurrency market and the large costs of inflation.The Fed (and many others)-"inf...

Before you consider the likes of Open Door, Zillow, or ANY other Online entity, that offers to buy Your home-with NO stress, NO repairs-Oh, and with you doing nothing but hold your hand out for your proceeds…Call your Local Realtor…Not a bad idea to call one that has been in the business for more than 3 decades either 😊Seriously folks…YOU deserve to get everything possible, out of the sale of your home…after all, you only have one opportunity to do it right…YOU owe it to yourself, to be sure you have all the facts, before making such an important decision.If one really saves thousands of dollars in commissions-Don’t you think, more Home Sellers would choose this option?  Yes, they would…There is a reason, they are not. Before you make a decision to consider this route-Please call…what y...

Yesterday, after a long early morning swim, I came home and did a little gardening too.  Visions of what's for lunch began to materialize.  Choices are sometimes difficult. However, I'm learning at my age, choices aren't always necessary, if everything is available. The testament is in the photo below.  It's brunch I prepared from ALL choices taking occupancy in my head. They include a few slices of Roasted Chicken Breast, Jasmine Rice, Madras Lentils, and Fresh Asparagus. I topped with Fresh Broiled Bruschetta made with cherry tomatoes from my garden, garlic, feta cheese, a little olive oil, fresh basil, salt and pepper. On the side are three slices of toasted sourdough bread.

When my kid, Jill called and suggested we park our chairs on the grassy area in front of the gazebo in Lions Park in the heart of the City of Folsom last evening, I knew if I responded positively, the end result would be for the greater good. And, so it was!Multiple summer concerts available throughout various communities in the Greater Sacramento region offer delightful respite from summer heat and global indignations.Last night's concert featured the group, Township, a county rock band. It was kind of cool sitting there on the lawn, while sipping a little wine, munching on chicken wraps and chocolate chip cookies, while listening to tunes like Sweet Home Alabama. And, especially Folsom Prison Blues, while we were actually in the town where the prison is!I also posted a video to YouTub...

Real Estate Market Statistics for Elk GroveThis month we do have a few changes in the market.  Prices are up over the last year, but our sales volume is down quite a bit.  We are also showing a big move up for days on market, but we started at such a low number that we are still showing homes priced right selling quickly at 16 days.  The trend is something to watch, though.  It is also worth noting that median prices are down almost 3% since May (average prices are down 4.4%).  Potential home buyers will be happy to learn that our inventory has increased 86% since April from 124 active listing to 231 active listings (see May Market Update).  That is a significant increase.It is not too much of a surprise since our economy has faced so many headwinds; higher interest rates, high gas pric...

Not all areas will be hit as hard as others-when it comes to the subject of the day...Is this a Market Correction, or is a Recession truly on the Horizon?   The top news stories start with the word “RECESSION” lately…well, not today-Today, the top news is whether or not our President can ride a bike! Ha 😊 And, apparently the answer is Nooooo—Now onto this conversation of a looming Recession in the housing market in 2022. Seriously folks-nothing happening in our market today is anything like it was prior to 2010…let alone into 2012.  This is not where the market is headed-please talk to a Professional, before you take yourself out of the market-even if that Professional isn’t me… Wendi-Mae Video Part 1 on Recession? of 2022 KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THE NEWS-SOME OF IT IS HYPE, a ...

I want to thank Endre Barath, Jr. and Mark Don McInnes, for hosting this June Old Glory Challenge.  For me, it has provided a measure of healing, and I believe for our Old Glory, a bit of cleansing too.  Prior to the early 1990s, Sacramento was home to three military bases – Two Air Force bases and an Army Depot.  Many of my neighbors are retired military.  Often in the past, many homes here had flags waving.  My own flag, being among them. However, after the January 6th 2021 insurrection at our nation’s Capitol, things changed somewhat.  Fewer flags have flown.  I admit I’ve been hesitant doing so.  In the year and half since that infamous day, there have been times I’ve reached for Old Glory to introduce her to flight.  However, horrific images in my head occupied haunting thoughts.  ...

The last couple days, I’ve enjoyed fun time playing with the little online photo editing tool, iPiccy.com.  iPiccy is free, and offers several options to enhance your pictures.I used iPiccy’s “emboss” tool while playing around with one of my images of an authentic paddlewheel riverboat, The Delta King, which is moored on the Sacramento River, at the waterfront in Old Sacramento.  Because of two flags present on this The Delta King image, I thought it would make a good contribution to ActiveRain’s June Challenge. A Challenge suggesting we post images of Old Glory providing testament Americana is alive and well.Originally built in 1927, The Delta King has been restored and brought back to its former glory.  In today’s world the paddle wheeler functions as a boutique hotel with one-of-a-ki...

Last evening, I spent delightful time at El Dorado Hills Town Center.  In summer, the Center provides a series of free concerts on several Thursday evenings.  We parked a couple lawn chairs on a grassy area across the lagoon from the bandstand, and waited for the music to commence.  Sangria was poured.  The night felt like vacation from global ills.  At one point, while looking toward the bridge, I was reminded of this month’s ActiveRain Challenge to honor our flag.  The Town Center has flags flying everywhere.  And, while floating upon the pleasant evening breeze, they provided a glorious sight.El Dorado Hills Town Center is a collection of delightful shops, cafes, restaurants, lodging and cinemas, along with other enterprises.  In addition to the free summer concert series, they host ...

Elk Grove Market Real Estate Market Update for June, 2022We have higher interest rates, inflation at a multi-decade high, a stock market that has been correcting, cryptocurrencies have been falling and even the bond market is slipping.  I thought that all would have impacted out market more than it has.  Year over year, median and average prices were both up.  We did see the median price fall, month over month, fall from $685,000 to $670,000.  The average price of sold homes held solid at $703,000, though.The days on market ticked up slightly and we do have just over a month of supply now for the first time in a very long time.  A balanced market is generally thought of as three months of supply so it is still a strong seller's market.  It will be interesting to see how the trend contin...

Our favorite destination for yard art, pots, statues and fountains is Lomeli Statuary.  I bet we have been visiting this place of business for over 30 years.  We have purchased several items to decorate our yard over the years.  We just visited Lomeli Statuary again a few days ago and look who greeted us!   There were several other beautiful peacocks strolling through the gardens and even a few babies.  The babies were so cute.  It was a pleasant surprise.We are always surprised by the diversity of items at Lomeli Statuary.   There is so much more to see, but I want to leave a few things for you to discover.  If you are looking for something beautiful for your yard and live in Stockton, Elk Grove, Sacramento or Lodi, it is worth the trip to Lomeli Statuary.If you are looking for real es...

The North Laguna Creek Wildlife AreaWe have driven past the trail hundreds of times.  It is a short walk from our current home and we always have wondered what we would find.It really opens up into a large meadow area with quite a few oak trees, plenty of wild flowers and a few Eucalyptus Trees.A little further along the path we ran into Laguna Creek, turtles and lots of birds.  This heron was stalking his dinner.And look at all the sparrows zipping around the area.And we were rewarded with a nice sunset.It really is a nice area to hike, ride your bike or do a little jogging.  There is a bridge over the creek so you can visit North Laguna Creek Park.  We noticed that just a few blocks past the park is the Regal UA Laguna Village Theater so we are planing a hiking trip to watch a movie a...

I do enjoy hosting open houses and many times I am surprised at the conversations that I have with those visiting the house.  Mary Margaret helped me stage a house a few years ago.  She added a very large, very nice Scrabble board made by Restoration Hardware on the living room coffee table, then she added words like, home sweet home, to the board.  I thought it was a little over the top, but every person that came through the door that day loved it and had to talk about it.  It is a fun way to get visitors to loosen up and enjoy the open house.When we put our home on the market a couple of weeks ago, we had removed all of our furniture so there was no place to put the Scrabble board.  I was a little worried that I did not have my "ice breaker,"  but everyone did want to talk.  They jus...

What's in it for me - The Realtor?Isn't that what it is really all about? Who cares how much experience you have or how many projects you completed, it is all about the next one, the one you are doing right now. How about closing your next 203k loan closed in short order... less than 30 days? Would that be of interest to you?If you do it by the book rather than by what you may have been told you should be able to do just that. 1. Consultant is the first person on the job. [many lenders want a bid first thinking their clock doesn't start till they get that in hand. This can quite often put a wrench in your project as the contractor doesn't always know what HUD requires such as health and safety issues, insultation requirements, caulking requirements, electrical requirements, and more.]2....

203k - Experience CountsLike anything else experience counts. I was talking with someone the other day from Sacramento when I had to think back to when we started doing FHA 203k consulting. It all started in 1994 when HUD created 203k consultants. We did about 20-30 that first year just in the Sacramento juristiction. Then year after year we did more than a hundred each year in that area and sometimes  as many as 250-300 per year just in the Sacramento area.  That is 28 years serving this community.One of the most interesting onces we did ever was a sale for about $888,000 as I recall. How does this become a 203k you may ask? The maximum loan amount for FHA in Sacramento County was about $450,000 at that time.  What we find out from time to time is that you need to think "out of the box...

Yesterday was a really delicious day! The temperature in beautiful Capitola along the California Coast boasted a perfect 75 degrees. The thought of warm sand on bare feet inspired not only myself, but my kid Jill, grandkid Macie and her friend Erin, to make the 150 mile journey to this special spot. The Capitola beach cottages always provide colorful accent.   Here's a little video I shot. It provides A broader view: https://youtu.be/D-5Nm8zkp_E
