How Do Home Sellers Get The Money at Closing?

How Do Home Sellers Get The Money at Closing?

  A client asked yesterday how do home sellers get the money at closing? This couple often prefaces their questions with an apology for not knowing protocol for selling a home. They tend to over-explain about why they ask certain questions, despite my assurances that there are no dumb questions. Because I believe that statement. There are no dumb questions in real estate. Part of my services to sellers is to be available to answer questions. Regardless of many questions or even how often. If a client has a question, I will answer it. I do know most of the answers. After[...]
Getting the New Pneumonia Vaccine at Kona Safeway

Getting the New Pneumonia Vaccine at Kona Safeway

Getting the new pneumonia vaccine at Safeway in Kona, otherwise known as pneumococcal 23 vaccine, is pretty easy to do. I've been thinking about getting this new vaccine because everything you read about old people unexpectedly dying is often related to pneumonia. They go into the hospital with an aching heart or a kidney stone, whatever, and they drop dead from pneumonia.  As a person over 65, I've already had the flu shot and the Prevnar 13, but not the new pneumonia vaccine. I stopped in Safeway last October to get the shot but was informed I should check with my doctor[...]
When the Shoe is On the Other Foot in Real Estate

When the Shoe is On the Other Foot in Real Estate

When the shoe is on the other foot in real estate, it is not a good fit. As a busy Sacramento Realtor, I am often astonished at the reactions of others in this business, myself included. We are professionals and, as such, should know better. But sometimes that human element pops out when we don't expect it.  Like when my husband and I made an offer on our house in Hawaii. The listing agent told us they had a counter offer out. Although I sell on average one or two houses a week and should know better, you won't believe what[...]
Do Quartz Counter Overhangs Require Support?

Do Quartz Counter Overhangs Require Support?

Ask a bunch of contractors whether quartz counter overhangs require support, and you'll get a bunch of different answers. I recall 30 years ago when I installed a countertop on a peninsula with an overhang and did not use support brackets. It was a breakfast counter with bar stools, and the overhang never cracked, but it was also formica. Nobody ever stood on it. Although, whether quartz counter overhangs require support depends on whom you ask. Seems every single countertop installer I talked with about this said yes, use support on any overhang exceeding 6 inches. Also don't believe everything you[...]
Should You Make a Hard Boiled Egg in the Microwave?

Should You Make a Hard Boiled Egg in the Microwave?

You might wonder if you can make a hard boiled an egg in the microwave. Perhaps you have heard of eggs exploding in the microwave and are a bit afraid to try it. I had my reservations. No idiot. In fact, I had never considered microwaving an egg to make it hard boiled because that's what my stove is for, right? I might not cook anything else on my stove, but boiling a pan of water with eggs and letting them sit for 10 minutes is my most common cooking technique. Everything else, pretty much, except a Thanksgiving turkey, I make[...]
