Who Needs Down Payment Money!?!? I Got That!

Many who rent have faced problems trying to save up enough down payment for purchase.  There are great down pay assist programs–especially for first time home buyers. And it pays to check in and see if you can qualify for a program, because some borrowers can “re-qualify” as a first timer, if it’s been a…

Where We Were, And Where Are We Going?

Olah! A year behind us, and a year ahead of us, let’s look at the Sacramento Real Estate stats. Does the fed raising interest rates worry you? What about rental costs rocketing skyward? (And doing so unjustly in my opinion!!) First of all, lets look at 2015 stats in an info-graphic– We are looking very,…

Your Friend The Taxman???

As  a Realtor in Sacramento, or anywhere else for that matter, I can speak to many real estate issues, and navigate the market for and with you. After a decade of helping clients with their real estate needs, I am pretty well versed and in the instance I can’t answer a question immediately, I have…

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

The Best Cities To Live In–Welcome Home!

Well, I am not sure who Looky Local is, but they like Sacramento almost as much as Austin, Texas!!! I’ll take it.   Now, if we could just get South by Southwest to move here!! Also on the list: New York (of course!), Nashville, and Kansas City, MO (WHAT..how did that rank there?!?). For some…

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…

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…

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…

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….

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…
