When I see people in sales professions working so hard to make a few sales that probably pay pittances, I can't help but wonder why they aren't in real estate. Maybe that's why, though. Because they are not confident enough in their own abilities to make it in a 100%-based commisson world. Maybe ...

Every time I sell a home facing the freeway in Sacramento, I am amazed. It is difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that buyers tend to prefer homes that are either newer or remodeled and don't seem to pay much mind to where they are located. Suppose it's because so many people go to w...

You don't have to monetize your website to make money in real estate, although, I don't disparage those who do. Nothing wrong with extra income. I know because although I've made a fortune selling a ton of real estate over the past 17 years in Sacramento, I also held a second job writing about ho...

Honestly, I know a lot of people who don't give a hoot about climate change because they a) won't be around when the world is destroyed, and b) they don't really understand it. They think oh, it's three degrees hotter, I can live with that. But they don't realize how many other living things cann...

You won't find very many Sacramento Realtors who wear only one hat. The reason is most of them can't afford to do it. If they stopped working with buyers, for example, and focused solely on sellers, they would lose half of their business. Or at least that's the way I figure they think. A fairly s...

When I withdraw a listing from MLS and re-enter it as a new listing, that is done for one purpose and one purpose only. To reset the days on market. I am not the only Sacramento Realtor who realizes how buyers tend to gravitate toward new listings and ignore older listings. A home can be on the m...

Not very surprised over the numbers on the Sacramento Housing Report for January, not even when I spotted the dip in our median home prices. The median price is the middle point between higher and lower numbers. It is indicative, in part, of the way we measure rising or falling markets.I have def...

Do you think it is hard to find a Sacramento listing specialist? I didn't think so, as I know a few outside of my practice, but my clients tell me otherwise. Although, the way I look at it, how many listing specialists do they need anyway? When they connect with an experienced agent with integrit...

Sometimes it is not price when a home has many showings yet no offers. Sometimes it is a unique home, meaning not odd but just different from all of the others. Especially if it has been designed for use by one particular type of person, say, maybe an artist. Or worse, a person who has too much m...

When you start out looking for a home to buy, you might be focused on a wide price range instead of narrowing your selections, and that's perfectly OK. You might say you initially would like to buy a home under a million, but closer to half a million is preferable. Well, that's a HUGE price range...

OK, this is the only photograph of I have of Lyon Real Estate's Midtown Sacramento office, and no, I do not think that person is dead. It's just how Midtown is. But I started my blog by talking about what happened when I woke up in Hawaii yesterday, and to find a photo of Lyon Real Estate with so...

You know how it is, the client and family leaps out of your vehicle to see a home and dashes to the door. They are chatting among themselves, excited to view inside. You're probably fumbling in your bag or pocket for the device that will open the lockbox, which means as an agent, you might not be...

It is no secret that for the majority of real estate agents, real estate is a second or third career choice. Rarely what they start out to do. You don't really hear children proudly proclaiming they want to grow up to become a real estate agent. Well, unless they grow up in a family real estate b...

Myrl's Jeffcoat's blog about when she started in real estate triggered this particular memory for me. She started about the same time as me, although a different decade. I tiptoed into the business when I began working as a title searcher at First American Title in 1974. After a few years of stan...

If it's a Sunday in Sacramento and not a holiday, you can bet we are doing open houses -- this week in 95818. We are always hosting an open house pretty much. If a holiday interferes, sometimes a Saturday open house is substituted instead. But we give all of our listings maximum exposure. Which m...

One of the ways I astound my Sacramento clients and provide superior service is to respond immediately to emails. That is easier to do when you receive emails in a more timely manner, too. Our phones have helped a lot with that. Especially when we're out in the field. However, try reading a long ...

If a person has never experienced good customer service, how would that individual recognize it? So much interaction today between consumer and vendor is impersonal. We scream into our phones "representative," when dealing with automated systems (or maybe that's just me) and that digital voice ca...
