Timing on Market is Key With Sacramento Listings

Timing on Market is Key With Sacramento Listings

Part of the problem I am facing as a top listing agent in Sacramento, odd as this might sound, is with timing on market; I can't keep any listings in inventory. Soon as I put a home on the market, we get a bunch of offers and it sells. I honestly don't think I've had a listing stay in active status longer than a week lately. I compare it to the days when I used to put together large dinner parties. I could spend 3 days on my feet, chopping, cooking, creating a Chinese feast and, within 20 minutes, the food[...]
Where Can You Buy Below Sacramento's Median Housing Price?

Where Can You Buy Below Sacramento's Median Housing Price?

When you see Sacramento's median housing price rose to $317,000 for April, you might wonder what you can buy for that and where can you buy it? Some of you might question whether we're headed for a bubble, but that's unlikely. Our median housing price was $374,000 at the height of the market in the summer of 2005. We're a ways from that. Plus, lending is too restrictive now and many buyers are paying cash. If you're thinking "bubble" forget those thoughts. Can't blame the bubble. If you feel the need to point the fickle finger of fate at somebody, point[...]
This Sacramento Realtor is Worth Her Weight in Gold

This Sacramento Realtor is Worth Her Weight in Gold

I would use the expression my sellers did, that this Sacramento Realtor is worth her weight in gold, but I'm not sure how you would compute that commission. It would make me worth more than $2 million if you figured it that way. Ha, nobody is worth $2 million. I ran into these sellers about 7 years ago and don't really remember it, but they swear they promised to give me the listing when it came time to sell. I had sold another unit in that complex, and they were impressed. See, people look at what an agent does as a[...]
What's Up With Free Seller Rent Backs in Sacramento Real Estate?

What's Up With Free Seller Rent Backs in Sacramento Real Estate?

Given our strong seller's market in Sacramento, many home buyers today are finding themselves closing escrow but not being able to move into their new homes due to the free seller rent backs. Part of the reason for the free seller rent backs is to induce the seller to accept an offer over another offer without the holdover possession. It's also because many sellers are not moving up. At least not in my listing inventories. Sellers are either a) a successor trustee or trustee of a trust; b) moving out of the area; c) selling an investment rental or d) buying[...]
West Sacramento Police Demanded Listing Agent Stop Selling House

West Sacramento Police Demanded Listing Agent Stop Selling House

It's not every day the West Sacramento Police call me up and demand that I stop selling a house in West Sacramento. But that's exactly what happened with this property. It wasn't an easy sale to start with but very few are these days. The seller lived out of area and her family occupied the home. Her mom, daughter and son, and a few others. When I stopped by to shoot photos, the family was a bit uncooperative, and the daughter accused me of throwing her grandmother into the street. But the seller wanted me to sell the home, so[...]
