Low Inventory Backfires on the Sacramento Housing Market

Low Inventory Backfires on the Sacramento Housing Market

Low inventory in the Sacramento housing market tends to generate multiple offers for the super desirable homes but there can be unintended consequences for sellers. Now, even homes that are not super desirable or maybe have some sort of drawback that makes potential home buyers pass it by are receiving more than one offer, as compared to the slower activity in the 4th quarter of 2015. But this year's start on the Sacramento housing market is very different from last year's. What is making the difference in the low inventory this year is the low number of comparable sales available for an[...]
Breaking Bad News to Sacramento Real Estate Clients

Breaking Bad News to Sacramento Real Estate Clients

Most of the time a Sacramento Realtor can bounce along with her sunny disposition always looking at the bright side of things, except when it comes time for breaking bad news to Sacramento real estate clients. Fortunately, it doesn't happen very often. Generally, everything moves smoothly according to plan, but every so often we face disappointing news. It's at those moments, I believe, that we Realtors are handed an opportunity to make our clients feel better, even though we've got to deliver news they might not want to hear. I was reminded of this yesterday when I stopped at the Sacramento Co-Op[...]
How to Effectively Reduce Spam Yet Run a Real Estate Business

How to Effectively Reduce Spam Yet Run a Real Estate Business

I have discovered wonderful ways to effectively reduce spam yet run a Sacramento real estate business, even while cutting out the mortgage brokers and home inspectors who hound to death this Sacramento Realtor with spammy emails. Their actions, of course, now prevent any emails from reaching this busy Realtor. This means, if they are on the other side of a transaction from me, I will never hear from them, which is actually OK. I am not required nor is it essential, as a listing agent, to interact with them. These guys think it's perfectly acceptable to go after every listing agent, perhaps wrongly[...]
Unexpected Benefits After Closing the Sale of an Investment Property in Antelope

Unexpected Benefits After Closing the Sale of an Investment Property in Antelope

When I agreed to list and sell an investment property in Antelope, I did not realize the seller would become a good friend. Although, in retrospect, I don't know why not. Most of my friends are a combination of other agents, real estate professionals and former clients, when I stop to think about it. When I was younger, I drew a hard line between "friends" and work relationships, but now that I'm in my 60s, that line is blurred, and it's OK. When you're as dedicated as I to real estate, the business and your personal life become one and the[...]
Reasons to Go the Extra Mile for California Real Estate Disclosures

Reasons to Go the Extra Mile for California Real Estate Disclosures

Most home sellers with a lick of common sense moan about California real estate disclosures. The home sellers' state and federal-mandated disclosures are a pain to fill out, but the ramifications of incomplete or inaccurate disclosures are potentially enormous. We had a closing temporarily held up yesterday when the underwriter suddenly requested a more thorough explanation, which I was able to immediately supply and avert the crisis, concerning a note the seller included on a loan document. As part of my full-service listing job duties, I try to prepare my sellers prior to completing disclosures. I offer to review the disclosures with my sellers as[...]
