Telling the Buyer the Truth

Telling the Buyer the Truth

Telling the buyer the truth is difficult for some. I know a lot of agents who are afraid to lose the sale. It's tough out there right now for many real estate agents. Some are struggling, writing tons of offers that don't get accepted, getting paid half as much and some aren't doing any transactions at all. For these agents, I suspect it's even harder to tell a potential home buyer that perhaps buying a home is not the best direction for them to move. I'll share a story about a buyer who was ready to go into contract. He had a[...]
Three Right Hand Turns to Go Left in Sacramento

Three Right Hand Turns to Go Left in Sacramento

Even if it makes your head hurt to think about it, it is definitely true that you need to make three right hand turns to go left. I'm talking about driving, not politics. When I turned 18, I bought my first car: a 1960 Chevy station wagon for $75. All my friends were waiting in my apartment for me to pull up in front. My apartment featured a big glass window that overlooked the street, so they could see me coming from a ways. I spied a bunch of smiling faces when my car turned the corner, but pretended I didn't[...]
My First Review of The Kitchen Restaurant in Sacramento

My First Review of The Kitchen Restaurant in Sacramento

Below is my first review of The Kitchen, originally published on August 30, 2008. We have since been back to The Kitchen many times, and each has been a complete delight. This is not only a "special occasion" type of restaurant, it's a farm-to-fork marvel and continues to be fresh, relevant to the food movement today, well, it's perfect for anytime the feeling hits that you'd like to enjoy a remarkable meal. Note: Any references to Noah Zonca are now obsolete as Noah no longer works at The Kitchen. If you're feeling in an extravagant mood and find yourself watching too many episodes of[...]
Sacramento Agents Should Support Other Agents

Sacramento Agents Should Support Other Agents

It's no secret I believe that Sacramento agents should support other agents. Agents often tell me how appreciative they are that I share real estate tips and my experiences. If I received these types of comments only once or twice, I'd think nothing more of it, but it's repetitive. This blows me away because sharing comes naturally to me. Its implication makes me suspect that maybe other agents aren't willing to come forward or share with other agents, and I don't really know why. What comes around, goes around. There aren't really any secrets in this business. And there's no reason to[...]
Working With First-Time Home Buyers in Sacramento

Working With First-Time Home Buyers in Sacramento

Probably because of the low inventory in Sacramento, we have been working lately with a larger than usual number of first-time home buyers. Almost half of sales this year so far are first-time home buyers in Sacramento. The rest are move-up buyers, which are also out in droves and sellers. Generally I work with these sellers to list and sell their home, and my team members help them to find a new home. We have a lot of competition for some homes but our buyers tend to end up in escrow fairly quickly, because we know the business. It's not easy for buyers to[...]
