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…

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…

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…

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…

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. …

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…

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…

It’s Always A Buyer’s Market

Had an interesting conversation with a buyer over the weekend. She was pretty sure the Sacramento Real Estate market was a “seller’s” market, and after looking at several nice properties, she wanted to ‘wait ’till prices come down’. After I picked my jaw up from the floor, I had to put on my educator cap…

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,…
