The Two Givens in Sacramento Real Estate

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

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.

On top of that, no matter what a buyer’s agent may believe, it is not the seller’s responsibility to convey transaction status or to discuss anything about the terms of selling the home with another agent. That’s one of the reasons sellers hire a Sacramento real estate agent, to represent the … Continue reading

For Those Who Have Shunned a Bourbon Whiskey

Alcoholic Whiskey Bourbon In A Glass With Ice

I have been drinking bourbon whiskey. That’s not an excuse for my behavior, btw, it’s simply a new thing in my life. How I got to be over 60 years of age and had never developed an affinity for bourbon is beyond me. Especially when I spent the last 8 years negotiating and selling short sales in Sacramento –because if short sales don’t push you over the edge, I don’t know what will. I became curious about bourbon whiskey after reading … Continue reading
