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…

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…

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…

And……Never Mind The CalHFA Scare!

Last week the week started with an urgent memo that the CalHFA Downpayment Assistant program was immediately suspended. If you were thinking of using this program with your FHA loan. Now, in Emily Litella’s best voice…..“nevermind“. HUD approved the temporary re-instatement of the CalHFA program for use with FHA 1st mortgages. CalHFA is going to…

Banks Can Be Wrong With A Low Valuation.

I’ve seen both sides now…those were song lyrics from the 60’s, but can’t think of the artist.  Anyone? In the last 45 days, I’ve had the same buyer in situations where the lien holder was out of their mind on a short sale home value. The first home–a condo–had a poor valuation done by a…

Buyers Strategizing? Stop. Full Price Offers Only.

I have to re-run this article from early May. I was shocked to see the date I wrote this, that was a summer ago!! Ok, only three months ago, but the market is still ablaze–and CDF is not going to save it now.  Having done my best to educate a new buyer client on the…

Sacramento Real Estate Market A Buzz!

I’ve then “warning” of this for some six months now, and while exciting, it does prove to make the real estate market somewhat difficult to manuever in, especially for buyers, with multiple, multiple offers on many properties. We’ve got a hot market! Most home sellers are recieving multiple offers, especially on turn key fabulous homes….

Want to Sell Your House in Sacramento? Just List It!

I was waxing poetic on Facebook yesterday–you know,  leaving a “super cute” comment about a picture of a pet, or offering support to a friend lamenting about life (and quoted some uplifting something by Tony Robbins, no doubt), when I ran across an article a friend had posted, about making your home more sell-able in…

Buying or Selling a House in Sacramento? Time to Jump Through Hoops!

It’s been a crazy week for sure–three new Foreclosure listings, three sets of tenants to give the bad news too. Arrrgh! I feel so bad for them!  I’m looking forward to a quick road trip for some horse show fun in Woodside, CA. Have a few closing next week, that’s good! No matter how good…
