The Worst Nightmare for Buyer Agents in Sacramento

The Worst Nightmare for Buyer Agents in Sacramento

This Sacramento Realtor deals with many buyer agents in Sacramento -- and, even after we are in escrow, I might not recall the name of the individual buyer agent, especially if the transaction happens to be a long escrow, like, say, a short sale. We have about 6,000 agents who belong to our MLS. I do not know every agent in town. But sometimes, agents are so caught up in their own existence that they forget nobody but them lives in that tiny world. That world where everybody recognizes the sound of their voice. Except for me, por supuesto, because[...]
Seller Recourse for a Bad Home Inspection in Sacramento

Seller Recourse for a Bad Home Inspection in Sacramento

Imagine, if you will, a scenario in which a bad home inspection can blow a real estate transaction in Sacramento, further compounded by the fact that sellers have no voice in the matter about which company will inspect their home, and you've got fodder for potential lawsuits, if not at least more revisions to the California Residential Purchase Agreement. It's a crazy situation that there seems to be no solution to. It's been this way in Sacramento real estate for so long that nobody even questions the validity of such shenanigans. First there is the issue that the listing side and[...]
Similarities Between Hospice and Sacramento Real Estate

Similarities Between Hospice and Sacramento Real Estate

If you think there are no similarities between hospice and Sacramento real estate, then you are not a real estate agent in Sacramento. Which is sort of surprising when you realize that one out of every 35 people in the state of California has a real estate license; yet we all painfully know, too, that simply possessing a real estate license does not make a person a real estate agent, but still. Busy agents who work in real estate day-in and day-out will readily spot the shared common denominators. My brother who is dying from sarcoma cancer has taken a turn[...]
How to Sell a Sacramento Condo Over Market Value

How to Sell a Sacramento Condo Over Market Value

Ask any seller if she would like to sell a Sacramento condo over market value, and the answer will undoubtedly be a resounding YES. Sacramento condos are a hot commodity right now because those prices, although rising, are still affordable. I hear some buyers complain that they think the HOA dues are too high. Those are the buyers who don't always fully appreciate the amenities available through certain homeowner associations. Yet, HOA dues are a factor. On a side note, as we become less and less connected to our home life as I see this trend, I would not be surprised[...]
How Important is the Condition of a Home When Selling?

How Important is the Condition of a Home When Selling?

Asking an experienced Sacramento Realtor about the condition of a home when selling is a smart move. I see so many sellers jump right in on their own, without seeking advice, and making repairs that do not need to be made, which means they are throwing money out the window. Oh, they might backtrack a little and mumble that's what they wanted to do for the buyers so it doesn't matter, but it does matter if they could have spent the money on say, oh, maybe a vacation in Hawaii, and they don't have a money tree growing in their back yard[...]
