A View from Anderson, California

A View from Anderson, California

The woman who owns the house where I am staying for a few days in Anderson, California, in an area she calls the Sacramento River Valley, is planning to install a 75-gallon aquarium in her living room. Because she doesn’t have a TV. Fish are interesting to watch, she says, and she’s right about that. It’s so quiet at this house at 1,000 feet elevation that after her husband died 5 years ago, she had a few nights when she left his oxygen tank running until morning to enjoy a comfort noise. Staying here in Anderson, California, gives one a different[...]
Top 7 Things You Should Know about the California Residential Purchase Agreement

Top 7 Things You Should Know about the California Residential Purchase Agreement

Somewhere in the early 1980s I decided to create my own purchase contract to use for sellers and buyers of California real estate. Granted, I was then as I am now a real estate broker and not a lawyer, not licensed to practice law, which writing your own residential purchase contract most certainly falls into, but it was pretty much the Wild West back then as compared to today. Today, I wouldn't dream of doing such a thing. OK, maybe I'd dream it, but I most certainly would not attempt it. Forty years of experience teaches us a few things,[...]
Why TSA Precheck is the Only Way to Fly Out of Sacramento

Why TSA Precheck is the Only Way to Fly Out of Sacramento

  Honestly, I was not really sure how TSA Precheck happened to apply to me out of the clear blue for I surely was not about to question my good fortune. You don't look a gift horse in the mouth, my mother used to say. Until the day the thought hit that I should probably bring it up because not only did it NOT happen on that particular trip, but what if the system was flawed, and airlines were granting TSA Precheck boarding passes in error, perhaps to terrorists? You know how government things often work. It was probably my civic duty to bring[...]
The Reason For All of the Sacramento Real Estate Blogs From Weintraub

The Reason For All of the Sacramento Real Estate Blogs From Weintraub

For the past several months I have been more actively involved than I've ever wanted to be in the rebuilding and updating of this Sacramento real estate website. It brings me back to Thoreau and simplify, simplify. I would not go so far as to say that I need to experience the unpleasant in order to appreciate the enjoyable, which is part of how Thoreau lived his life, but he does have a good point in that we all tend to get caught up in the gritty details and we allow them to grind us to death. Simplify, simplify. Naturally, a website[...]
How Many Sacramento Purchase Offers Does it Take Before an Offer Sticks?

How Many Sacramento Purchase Offers Does it Take Before an Offer Sticks?

Even though I have been in the real estate business for 40 years, it still amazes me how buyers can be so sure one minute and so completely nuts the next. I'm wondering if there isn't some sort of sign that buyer's agents are overlooking, or if the agents are so completely focused on getting the paperwork signed that they forget to have a chat with the buyer. You know, something along the lines of: When you sign this contract, you have committed to buy a home, just in case they thought they were signing up for membership in Sam's[...]
