Water Cooler Talk? Check Swing!

It’s MLB’s opening day, and no doubt, friends will gather ’round the office water cooler (or coffee machine, or office gym or break room, or….) to discuss “that call” or “that play”, or a decision by a team manager- or a myriad of other things- and opinions will fly! In Real Estate, when a client…

Sacramento Real Estate Movement and Fun.

Back in the days of the worst foreclosure problems of the early 2000’s, I started extrapolating numbers from the Sacramento Area Real Estate market. How many homes were Foreclosures, Short Sales, how many sales were there, how many listings? It was a great education in just how the market was shaping up with home sales. …

What’s Your Home’s Value?

A simple enough question, and is the first question, when getting ready to sell your home. The all popular “how’s the Real Estate market” is a close second, but is only part of the overall equation of value. Price per square foot is not a correct way of valuing a home, whether you are buying…

Too Many Good Things Real Estate!

I have recently run across way to many great things in the Sacramento Real Estate market. Oh, how will I edit my blog??! Big discussion in our weekly meeting at REMAX Gold. Is it a seller’s market or a buyer’s market? Big Dog Realtor Boy, says, “oh it’s a buyer’s market for sure” (meaning Sacramento…

New Year, New Opportunities!

I always like hearing what new laws come into effect with the New Year. For instance, this year, chickens in California get to live much better-A state law that took effect Thursday requires egg laying hens have enough space to fully extend their limbs. And In New York, taking selfies with tigers is banned by…

A Look At Stats At The End Of 2014

Ahhhhh…the battles can be grand! The naysayers who gather at the water cooler, to tell you how BAD the market is in the fall and around the holidays. The know it all over the backyard fence, who tells you that “your Realtor is wrong, ignore them and list higher–you’ll get your price”. Yes, sometimes I…

2014 — The Market Settles Down

Happy New Year! Always in flux, slowly adapting and changing like the Amoeba from your high school science class, Sacramento Real Estate will look different as 2014 matures. Here’s a great article with future predictions: “The days of record-low interest rates and bidding wars may be a thing of the past in the new year….

FOOTBALL, SNOW, and THE WINTER REAL ESTATE SEASON

Wow, was the Cowboys-Packers game crazy or what????  Jason Garrett can run an offense, but not so sure he can run a team (Cowboys coach was formerly the Offensive Coordinator). …..and in the meantime….went home to Milwaukee to see my family. The high on Thursday was 11 degrees! It. Was. Cold. The homes in Milwaukee…

The Sacramento Real Estate Market

Showed several properties over the weekend, and heard an interesting comment from one buyer–that the current “slow down” in the Sacramento Real Estate market was ‘just seasonal’.  Of course, no one can argue with the fact there are less sales in the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. There are real and tangible reasons why the…

Plenty Of Investment Oppotunites Still Out There!

Looking over what I have coming up the First Quarter of 2014,  I realized there are still plenty of great properties available for investors in Sacramento homes, or surrounding areas, like Elk Grove real estate. I have 1400 sq. ft. in Rosemont, could be ready in 30 days, around 199K.  Just north, in Glenbrook, my…
