The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Sacramento Home Sales

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Sacramento Home Sales

In my real estate practice of Sacramento home sales, I draw upon my 40-some years in the business when I advise my clients. Experience pays off. My sellers know I will share all aspects of the home sales process with them, and not just say what they want to hear. Of course, every seller loves to listen to praise, they want to hear their home is beautiful, but they absolutely need to know the downside, too. I've heard of some Realtors who spend a lot of time criticizing a home, and what that kind of approach accomplishes, even if the criticism is[...]
The Mosaic Stairs in San Francisco Offers Panoramic Views

The Mosaic Stairs in San Francisco Offers Panoramic Views

Inspired by a San Francisco Realtor I know, a promise I made to myself came true, that the next time my husband and I had a little free time in the City, we would visit the Mosaic Stairs in San Francisco. This is an actual tourist attraction in San Francisco, although a little bit out of the way. It's located between 15th and 16th Streets on Moraga Street. You could walk there from Golden Gate Park, but we were staying on Nob Hill, so we hailed a cab. My husband probably would have preferred public transportation, but the area is mostly residential,[...]
Taking the Sacramento Capitol Corridor Train to San Francisco

Taking the Sacramento Capitol Corridor Train to San Francisco

The Sacramento Capitol Corridor train looks especially good to us Sacramentans who often drive to San Francisco. Like, the only flaw in our crazy-wild first class Air France experience recently was the limo ride from Sacramento to San Francisco and home again. Leaving at 11 AM on a Saturday morning meant we had to spend 3 hours in traffic, and coming back around 2 PM on a Thursday meant 5 hours. I just laid flat on the long seat and tried to keep myself from sliding off during the stop-and-go. My husband is my very own personal public transportation guide. He grew up[...]
Things to See in Mallorca, Spain

Things to See in Mallorca, Spain

Apart from the beaches, there are many things to see in Mallorca. But first, this is an island I have yearned to visit since 1973, when I was seated next to a woman on a flight from Denver to Minneapolis, feeling all weepy because I was leaving a city I wanted to live in and returning to one I did not. My seat mate had returned from vacation in Mallorca and described in great detail the beauty of this magical place. I felt like sometime in the future I would eventually find myself on this island, and sure enough, it[...]
Why Overpricing Does Not Encourage Buyers to Negotiate

Why Overpricing Does Not Encourage Buyers to Negotiate

Overpricing doesn't matter to some home sellers in Sacramento because sellers who knowingly overprice a home often have a hard time putting themselves into the shoes of a home buyer. No matter how much they try to squeeze size 10 1/2 feet into those size 9 shoes, they are still walking in the shoes of a seller. They make decisions as a seller and hope a buyer will see things the same way, when buyers do not. When I talk with sellers about overpricing and why they need to reduce the price to a point where a buyer will make an[...]
