Why Sacramento Credit Union Mortgages Can Be More Difficult

Why Sacramento Credit Union Mortgages Can Be More Difficult

Let me go on the record as saying I have nothing against credit union mortgages or credit unions in general, as I am a member of a credit union in Sacramento and also Hawaii. However, as a Sacramento listing agent, I am rarely overjoyed to see a preapproval letter from a credit union. For about the same reason as when an institutional bank prepares a preapproval letter. These preapprovals are generated by a salaried person, not a person earning commission. Salaried individuals have little incentive to hit benchmarks and some do a poor job communicating. That's not to say none perform[...]
Wilhaggin Fixer Home in Sacramento For Sale

Wilhaggin Fixer Home in Sacramento For Sale

For those who have an eye for rehabs or want to remodel a Wilhaggin fixer home into a dream home, this is your opportunity calling. There are so many different types of buyers for this home, which are you? Do you want to flip a home? This home is listed at $399,000, and fixed up it could be worth in the neighborhood of $600,000, based on comparable sales of homes in this highly desirable community. Do you want more square footage than its present size of 1,559, per the Sacramento County Assessor's office? The lot is .25 acres, so it's plenty[...]
Do Not Care So Much About What Other People Think

Do Not Care So Much About What Other People Think

You can never be freely yourself if you care too much about what other people think. Oh, sure, easy for you to say, is the standard response I get when I give people solid advice who want to pluck excuses out of their butt as supposedly logical reasons why they can't take my advice. You can do it but I can't because blah, blah, blah. You're this and I'm that. And they are right. They can't do it, because they refuse. There is fear. They feel a need to conform. There is comfort in conformity. And they care too much about what other[...]
Realtors Willing to Pay the Price Become Top Producers

Realtors Willing to Pay the Price Become Top Producers

Top producers in Sacramento real estate generally get to that spot two different ways. Either they know a ton of people or they pay the price by working super hard. It could be a combination of those two things but usually it is not. We all know the guys whose lives are a continual party; who rarely return phone calls, seem to subsist on scotch and cashews, yet are rolling in the dough. It's only human nature to want to gravitate toward that HGTV lifestyle. Who wants to work that hard? There are always those handful of agents who mess up again and again[...]
Pay Your 2016 Fourth Quarter Estimated Taxes Today

Pay Your 2016 Fourth Quarter Estimated Taxes Today

One of the real reasons I came back from Hawaii to Sacramento last week was to be here in time to pay my 4th quarter estimated taxes for 2016. I do not like using a public WiFi to access sensitive personal data like this from a hotel in Maui, even using a VPN. I figure why take the risk? Hackers are everywhere, but especially prone to places where people are relaxed, on vacation, having fun. Although, honestly, I sorta doubt most people would be trying to pay their taxes online while they are on vacation, but you never know. Yeah, it might[...]
