Tale of a Short Sale in The Rivers of West Sacramento

October 31, 2014 by Elizabeth

The Rivers West Sacramento

Homes don’t come up for sale very often in The Rivers in West Sacramento, that subdivision known as the Lighthouse Marina (misspelled in many public records), which helps to produce high demand for these homes. It’s a very pretty gated community, featuring an assortment of maple trees and other landscaping approved by the HOA, The Rivers. Thank goodness the U.S. Government isn’t in the habit of donating armed military tanks to HOAs because The Rivers would surely delight in owning one. … Continue reading

How Sacramento MetroList iBox Exchange Affects Home Sellers

October 30, 2014 by Elizabeth


The reason Sacramento real estate agents are getting hosed by MetroList is because . . . well, I’m not really sure of the explanation that MetroList gave me when it called to discuss my “hatchet job of MetroList.” There was much blabber about blubber: how large our MetroList is and how many lockboxes we have in our system, and how none of us will really know exactly what went on behind the scenes and never will know because it’s confidential … Continue reading

October 29, 2014 by Elizabeth

It looked like a home in the midst of a rehab job. Nobody told me it had been vandalized. … Continue reading

Sacramento Listing Agent

Raising the sales price when your home doesn’t sell because it’s priced too high for the market is a screwball strategy that some sellers employ for various unknown reasons. Well, if you ask the seller he might say that a home down the street, for example, was just listed at a higher price, which in his mind would justify the price increase, even though it’s the wrong way to look at it. If anything, an overpriced home down the street will make … Continue reading

Telling Sacramento Sellers What They Don’t Want to Hear

October 27, 2014 by Elizabeth

You can’t really be an effective Sacramento real estate agent if you’re not willing to tell sellers what they don’t want to hear. That means you have to figure out how to share bad news in such a way that people don’t immediately take off their shoes and start beating on your head. There is a way to frame bad news. Not necessarily like the cat on a roof story. I don’t know how one can expect a seller, for example, … Continue reading
