I'm going to date myself a bit, and tell you a little story from the dawning of my childhood.  In the decades ramping up to the 1960s, America's cities weren't plagued by graffiti on fences, walls, bridges, and just about every surface vulnerable to a spray can.    However, I was born during Worl...

When home sellers refuse to sign a counter offer, as a listing agent, what can you do? The sellers are your clients. Listing agents must maintain a fiduciary relationship with sellers. We must represent our clients to the fullest of our ability and always keep their best interests at the forefron...

Buying real estate is similar to having a baby. You tend to forget how painful it can be because the rewards are so great. If you could remember, you might not want to do it again. In my opinion, selling is much easier than buying but it can also be stressful.One of the ways that I help my seller...

Yesterday morning I spotted an email delivered to my inbox that contained a brand new listing. I have targeted specific neighborhoods with hotsheets in MLS (boy, that's an old term, hotsheets), to keep abreast of all activity. In this particular neighborhood, an interesting new listing popped up....

Things are beginnng to look up in November in Sacramento. December has taken off like a bang, too. At least for me, I don't know how well other agents are faring. I can tell you that September and October were very slow months, which has been out of the ordinary for me. Did not take very many lis...

I am fond of saying that I could buy my own island in French Polynesia if I had received every offer that buyer's agents said they were sending over the past 40 years. Because it is true. I find buyer's agents are often FAR more excited about the prospects of a house than their buyers are. They t...

The Southside Urban Villas were all the rage when they were built 11 years ago. That's because little infill development was happening in Sacramento at that time. Most of the homes you could buy near Southside Park, which borders Land Park going toward downtown, were much older, vintage classics....

 Rarely do I oversleep in Hawaii, but this morning I did not wake up until the Lowe's contractor guys were hitting my Ring Doorbell, which chimes very loudly in our master bedroom. BTW, I highly recommend getting the Chime feature doohickey for that contraption. Pulled me out of a sound sleep.I h...

Some agents learn how to sell real estate by memorizing sales techniques and making canned statements. It works for them, I guess, but it's never been authentic to me. Yeah, yeah, all the world's a stage and we are but bit actors, still, it doesn't seem the way to go in my mind. The way to go is ...

Let me be clear that I am not badmouthing all agents. It is always just a few that ruin it for the rest of us. One thing I have noticed over my 40+ years in real estate is there seems to be a) no shortage of scumball agents and b) that puts us always on high alert that a client could confuse the ...

Yes, my prediction for today is December real estate sales in Sacramento could be much stronger than you might expect.  There is a lot of doom and gloom talk going around, and I see the numbers, too. Sure, interest rates are climbing, sales prices have appreciated, and now we are moving into a mo...

By the time you read this, I shall be 30,000 feet in the air without WiFi. Yup, on this day of November, I am moving my real estate business from my summer home in Sacramento to my winter home in Hawaii. It doesn't mean I sell real estate in Hawaii. It means I still sell real estate in Sacramento...

Last week I accidentally overheard a conversation between a potential buyer an a buyer's agent. The buyer was extremely rude, although I'm not sure she meant to be. Her conversation led her to this conclusion: "Let me remind you there are a lot of preforeclosure experts on Zillow; I can call any ...

Sure, Imelda Marcos was a criminal who stole a lot of money, but she will always be remembered for her shoes. When she was forced to flee the Phillipines, it was reported she left behind more than 3,000 pairs of shoes. Some reports indicated 7,500 pairs of shoes, to which she famously clarified, ...

After the open houses today, we begin the countdown to Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Year. This is the time of year in Sacramento that our real estate market typically slows down. Buyers are not as active in the winter months, but when they have to buy a home, they need to purchase a ho...

Trying to combat some of the misinformation in the real estate industry is like trying to explain how a leader of the free world can make up stuff when so few seem to care. It's like if one repeats a lie often enough it starts to sound like the truth. Which is why it's very annoying when a seller...

In our MLS system in Sacramento, we are not allowed to market a property before it is published in MLS, unless we obtain an MLS waiver. But that doesn't stop the sellers from chatting with neighbors or the real estate brokerage from circulating listings internally prior to publication, among othe...
