A Short Visit to Dunsmuir, California

September 1, 2014 by Elizabeth

On our way home to Sacramento from Mt. Shasta yesterday, we stopped by the ambrosial town of Dunsmuir, California. The front desk clerk at the Mt. Shasta Resort told us she lives there and was a bit hesitant in trying to recommend the town to us when we asked about it. I think she didn’t want to appear as though she was boasting in case we didn’t like the town and would somehow hold her responsible for her personal recommendation. She was really … Continue reading

A McCloud River Falls Trail Hike Instead of an Open House

Kids jumping Middle Falls, McCloud River

This is a bad day to hold an open house in Sacramento but it’s a perfect day to hike the McCloud River Falls Trail around Mt. Shasta in Northern California.

August 29, 2014 by Elizabeth


There are two givens in real estate that pertain to Sacramento real estate and selling homes in Sacramento and well, just about anywhere in the country, actually. One is if your listing is about to expire, that home will suddenly, for no explicable foreseeable reason, sell. The other is if you go on vacation, all of your listings will sell. And that’s pretty much the way things have been going lately. We decided to get out of town to celebrate … Continue reading

The Worst Ways to Buy a Sacramento Home

August 28, 2014 by Elizabeth

Punxsutawny Phil Sacramento Real Estate

Have you ever wondered what are the worst ways to buy a Sacramento home? I swear, there are times when I see flashes of 25 years ago watching buyers in Sacramento hunt for a home to buy. It makes me wonder why they waste the effort. I suppose part of it is due to the low inventory of homes for sale in Sacramento, and those slim pickings can make some buyers feel desperate. The other reason is probably due to the … Continue reading
