How to Know if Your Sacramento Home is Priced Right

How to Know if Your Sacramento Home is Priced Right

Sellers sometimes wonder if their Sacramento home is priced right. Even though a Sacramento Realtor may explain how comparable sales work, how we arrive at pricing, it's not unusual for sellers to be confused or to disregard the comparable sales. After all, if a buyer pays cash, the comparable sales are not always that important since there will be no appraisal. Believe it or not, not every buyer is concerned as long as the price pencils out or otherwise makes sense to them, especially if the buyers are from the Bay Area, like many of my buyers seem to be.[...]
The Standard Commission Rate for Sacramento Real Estate

The Standard Commission Rate for Sacramento Real Estate

It doesn't matter if it's the first words or the last, if a seller is basing her (or his) decision to hire a Sacramento Realtor solely on commission as a qualifying factor, that seller is missing out on several crucial opportunities. Some people don't understand, and they will never understand no matter how many ways it is expressed, and I get that. They are looking for a standard commission rate for Sacramento real estate. I mean, they go into a grocery store to pick up a loaf of bread, and with all things mostly equal, typically will choose the bread that is[...]
Are You Too Old to Learn a Foreign Language like Spanish?

Are You Too Old to Learn a Foreign Language like Spanish?

Just when you think can't teach an old dog new tricks. The seller of a home I sold in Land Park a few years ago over on Marty Way had hung signs in French all over her house to teach her children a foreign language. Porte is door. Le bureau is table. I'm thinking about doing that in our home to help me learn Spanish and hope the cats don't shred my efforts. They like to tear up foreign pieces of  paper taped to objects. I know I often repeat I have no regrets in life, but I do regret that I did not learn[...]
When Listing a Home in Sacramento is Begging for Trouble

When Listing a Home in Sacramento is Begging for Trouble

There is no law in the universe that says a Sacramento Realtor must work with every single person who calls her about listing a home in Sacramento. Let me preface that by saying I work with all kinds of people and do not discriminate against anybody for any reason. OK, I would not represent Rush Limbaugh but just about anybody else, and even politics don't typically enter into the equation. My job is to represent the seller, sell the home and make the seller happy, and THAT I can do very well. Totally crazy people, though, I can't fix or workaround. Don't[...]
Your Carmichael Realtor Presents Another Home for Sale

Your Carmichael Realtor Presents Another Home for Sale

There is no time in my day to get geared up over the New Hampshire Primary when I've got a new listing for a home in Carmichael to market. This Carmichael Realtor has been busy. Although, I must say that we can blame Saturday Night Live now for seeing Larry David anytime we spot Bernie, and not really the nice side of Larry David but more the other, which isn't really fair to the old guy but c'est la vie. True, check out Bern Your Enthusiasm on Hulu at the Rolling Stone. I'm not always in tune with what's going on in the world,[...]
