GOP Tax Bill  Retains Exemption of Gain on Sale of a Personal Residence

GOP Tax Bill Retains Exemption of Gain on Sale of a Personal Residence

Lawmakers make it almost impossible to find updates about the gain on sale of a personal residence. But oh, my lanta, the good news is the law remains unchanged. The Republican Conference Committee released the final draft of the GOP Tax Bill last night at 5:30, Eastern Standard Time. Friday night, when everybody's headed off to Christmas parties, sounds like an excellent time to release a substantial overhaul of our current tax system. It ensures every American citizen will find the time to read the 1,100 page document, ha, ha. Out of all the disagreements between the Senate and House versions,[...]
Sacramento Housing Market Trends November 2017

Sacramento Housing Market Trends November 2017

The Sacramento housing market trends November 2017 shows the underlying story in Sacramento real estate. You have to dig around a little bit to find this chart, but this shows the last 15 months of average square-foot prices in Sacramento County. Over the past year, those prices have increased 11.4%. People are quick to jump on bubble theories, but that's only because they don't really understand what happened when the market crashed. They equate rising prices to the market crash, and that would be an untrue and unfair assessment. Home prices were on the way down when the crash occurred. It[...]

Photos of High Tide and Honus at Kukio Beach

Wednesday is not so busy this time of year that Sacramento Realtor and part-time Kona resident Elizabeth Weintraub can't find time to visit Kukio Beach. I checked the tide charts, and high tide was around 12:30 PM. Ordinarily, I would prefer low tide because there are more interesting things to see at low tide, but I was hosed given the fact low tide happens twice a day. Neither of those times worked with my schedule. Located just 30 minutes from Kona, I picked Kukio Beach, a hair south of the Four Seasons Hualalai because I had never been there. My husband and[...]
Review of Tutu's Plants, Gardens and Nursery in Kailua-Kona

Review of Tutu's Plants, Gardens and Nursery in Kailua-Kona

One of the fascinating things about life is meeting a new person I immediately admire and aspire to be, like Barbara Bolton at her nursery in Kailua-Kona. This woman is still going strong at whatever age she is, and I did not ask her when she was born. She's older than me at 65, I'll tell you that. Probably stronger than me, too. She started this nursery in Kailua-Kona about 10 years ago. It's still a work in progress, even after all of these years. I just lucked out when I found the nursery online in some obscure place. When I[...]
Tips for Working With Non-English Speaking Buyers in Sacramento

Tips for Working With Non-English Speaking Buyers in Sacramento

Working with non-English speaking buyers in Sacramento real estate is more common than you might think. It's no secret that our lower affordable prices and close proximity to the Bay Area draws to Sacramento many foreign buyers from San Francisco. One of the recurring hurdles we need to cross is to develop trust. Which is difficult when you can't really communicate. I mean, how do you tell a buyer, hey, we Sacramento Realtors are in many ways like those from the Midwest, honest almost to a fault, accommodating, desiring to assist and help. We are not slippery-slope big city sharks. In one[...]
