INTEREST RATES EFFECT BOTH SELLERS AND BUYERS

Happy Thanksgiving!! If you’ve read a few of these blog posts, then you know I am no fan of the Media and their real estate news. They are often late, or early, or not on target. During the Foreclosure crisis of the late 2000’s, the media was late reporting the problems–millions were already effected. In…

Yeah, But What Part Of Arden Arcade Do You Want To Live In?

  Oh my! It can be a little embarrassing when a client tells me they want to buy–or sell their home–in Arden Arcade. But…which area of Arden Arcade are we talking about?? It almost sounds like I don’t the area!  Here is a great article written by Tinka Davi that explains it!! And also addresses…

Real Estate Market Trends, and Another Change-Up?

I was once taught that no matter the market, the question will come– “Hey, Kylee, how’s the Real Estate market?”. And my answer? “It’s crazy!”. Well, it is! Have you seen it? Prices are up. Few homes are under $150,000. Inventory seems low, but I suspect is more like “medium”. One house sells in 3…

Easy Old Math

I was holding a really nice home open last Sunday. Into the open house walks a young couple, they were soooooo excited to be home shopping for the first time. I love that enthusiasm. They asked me if I could “hold the home” for them! They were not quite ready to write an offer, but…

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…

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…
