Astonishing Way to Get Rid of Calluses on Feet

Astonishing Way to Get Rid of Calluses on Feet

For most of my life, I've been trying to get rid of calluses on feet. The astonishing thing is it has only been the last 5 years or so that the condition of my aging feet have hardened to the point it looks like they have died. I mean, hey, I'm only 65. My feet should not resemble a person who is dead. Yet outta nowhere, calluses on my feet have mushroomed to epic proportions. When I noticed my feet were turning into the Sahara Desert, I freaked out. Immediately made an appointment with my dermatologist to address the situation. Squeamish[...]
When is a California Purchase Offer Legally Binding?

When is a California Purchase Offer Legally Binding?

My seller asked when is a California purchase offer legally binding? He had accepted a buyer's counter offer, signed all of the documents. We sent the package back to the buyer's agent and asked for confirmation. Tick, tick, tick. No confirmation came. Next morning, tick, tick, tick. No confirmation. Then the buyer's agent sent an email to say the buyer was over the top with excitement. Only little problem? We are not in contact. Why isn't the purchase offer legally binding? The seller accepted the buyer's counter to the seller's counter, so we have completed agreement, right? Not so fast. We[...]
Listing Agents: Watch for Purchase Offer Mistake on CAR RPA

Listing Agents: Watch for Purchase Offer Mistake on CAR RPA

The most common type of purchase offer mistake I am noticing lately in a California Residential Purchase Agreement is a checked box that could cost the seller a ton of money if it's not countered out of the contract. Now, true, some buyer's agents go crazy hog wild checking boxes left and right. I see contracts that state the seller will pay all HOA fees when there is no homeowner's association. Or, they state sellers will pay city transfer fees when the property is not located in a city. One of the main ways buyer's agents make a purchase offer mistake is by[...]
Ever Hear an Agent Say I Don't Want to Waste Anybody's Time?

Ever Hear an Agent Say I Don't Want to Waste Anybody's Time?

When an agent prefaces an email by writing I don't want to waste anybody's time, the first thought that pops into my head is then why are you talking to me? Who are you, Al Pacino? If you truly don't want to waste anybody's time, it would seem as though you're about to do that very thing you were hoping to avoid. I suspect what they mean to convey is they are about to say something the recipient does not want to hear. In part, that's probably true. Saying I don't want to waste anybody's time generally means the agent is[...]
The Worst Purchase Offer Ever in 40 Years Says Realtor

The Worst Purchase Offer Ever in 40 Years Says Realtor

To hold the dubious honor of worst purchase offer ever received by this Sacramento Realtor, it's got to be pretty bad. After all, you figure I probably receive around 300 to 500 offers, I'm guessing, every year. In just 10 years, that would mean reviewing 3,000 to 5,000 purchase offers, on average. Over 40 years, it's a crazy number of purchase offers. I've received doozies in my day but this is the worst purchase offer ever in 40+ years. When the buyer's agent is, um, overly emotional as well, it adds to the unwanted drama. Just the other night, an agent[...]
