Need a Foreclosure Solution? Yes, It Still Happens!!…..

…..and if it’s happening to you…..it’s still a crisis! Facing foreclosure is never easy. It’s downright scary. I know, I’ve been through it myself. Back in 2007, when the market tanked, and so did my business, I lost a duplex. I was living on one side, and had a renter in the other half. It…

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…

Short Sales Still Decorate The Market

ARRGH! Just when I was doing the “never process a short sale again” happy dance, I have two to work thru!! Not to be mistaken for unhappiness, I am always happy to have business. Let’s face it, Short Sales are difficult and often involve 5am wake up calls–as lien holders are on the East Coast,…

Make Sure The Foreclosure Joke Is Not On You!!

Foreclosing banks do not return your equity! I do not have to travel far to find interesting stories from the Sacramento Real Estate market–which I write about here, so you will have another tool to discern the truth from water cooler gossip.

It’s A Bad Call In The Real Estate Endzone!

I had a friend lamenting about a bad call the 49ers got during the Superbowl, that they were “robbed”.  I told him the team wasn’t robbed, considering they did not play well the first half. Had they been in the game the first 30 minutes, with another point or 7 on the board, that bad…

Short Sales Still Causing a Stir In The Market.

Well, the title says it all, so I’ll just stop typing now.   Truth be told, about 55% of the few listings we have on the Sacramento home market are still short sales. We’ve got a few more years until the Sacramento Real Estate market is mostly cleansed of these pesky little buggers! That is,…

Scammers Trying to Cash In….Renters Beware!

Sacramento Home Sellers, this will effect you more than buyers. And any renters that might be traveling these pages, should really dial in. I have, over the past few months, fielded phone calls from folks wanting to know ‘how much my listing on yadda yadda street is renting for?’ Well, sorry, but that home is…

The Funny Business of Loan Modification

As a Sacramento Realtor,  I’ve had the very good fortune of successfully negotiating short sales, helping home buyers get offers accepted in multiple offer situations, and listing and selling homes  that I thought I’d never get sold due to the home’s condition!  Recently, the worst horror story played out before my very eyes—the seller decided…
