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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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. …

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…
