How a Sacramento Realtor Earns That Full Service Commission

How a Sacramento Realtor Earns That Full Service Commission

There are agents from the Blue Fish Realty Company who tell sellers in Sacramento that they don't have to pay a full service commission because Blue Fish offers the same services for less, but that is a falsehood. I have proven time and time again it is not true. Cheap agents can't do what I do for less. It's impossible. In fact, I often tell sellers who want to list with Blue Fish to go ahead, and when they figure out they've sold their home for less plus they can't get through the home inspection without paying for repairs or[...]
46 Days to Close Escrow With This Sacramento Mortgage Broker

46 Days to Close Escrow With This Sacramento Mortgage Broker

There is a reason we refer only the top guys as a Sacramento mortgage broker to our buyers. They perform. They do what they say they will do. There are no excuses offered up because they don't screw up. Our preferred mortgage brokers return phone calls. When everybody's bag o' money is pretty much the same, a Sacramento home buyer would have to be a bit nuts not to want to work with our preferred mortgage broker. The guys who make sure to close early or right on time are a precious commodity in Sacramento real estate. We just closed an[...]
Do Real Estate Agents Have a Bad Reputation?

Do Real Estate Agents Have a Bad Reputation?

An agent commented yesterday that she felt embarrassed to be part of a profession in which so many real estate agents have a bad reputation because she does not deserve that moniker. Hey, some agents deserve the bad reputation label because they have earned it. Other agents are thoughtful, skilled, compassionate and excel at their job. It's why some listing agents get paid 6% commission or more, for example, and others only 5% or less. Because good listing agents are worth what they are paid. It's rare I run across people who believe that Sacramento Realtors are miserable scum, so I'm not that[...]
Be on the Lookout for Fake Proof of Funds in Sacramento Real Estate

Be on the Lookout for Fake Proof of Funds in Sacramento Real Estate

Back in the old days of Sacramento real estate, nobody cared much about proof of funds. A lot of business was done on a handshake and, when I started in the business in 1974, via a one-page NCR contract. To put that time period into perspective, this was before most families even owned a microwave. But times change, and we quickly adapt to the times they are a-changin'.  I can't believe I ever survived in a world without computers and cellphones, but I obviously did. Nowadays, people want proof of everything. There are no good-ol' boy deals. We don't trust anyone. Nor[...]
Fixer Rosemont Home Pending in Four Days With 10 Offers

Fixer Rosemont Home Pending in Four Days With 10 Offers

People see how fast an agent can put a home pending (into escrow) in Sacramento and they often make the mistake of thinking that selling Sacramento real estate must be a piece of cake, when little is further from the truth. I've been working on this listing for the past 6 1/2 weeks. There were a lot of moving parts, many circumstances and unforeseen situations, some out-of-state, some in the city, and it all had to come together. On top of this, I revised my comparative market analysis almost daily to arrive at the perfect listing price. The listing price is[...]
