Settling on a Hawaii Gardener for our Second Home

Settling on a Hawaii Gardener for our Second Home

Don't ask me how many Hawaii gardeners we have hired to work on our yard at our second home. When we're not there all of the time, plants keep on growing regardless. Plus, we have an HOA, which routinely sends out letters to many of my neighbors, including us, threatening action if our yards are not "maintained." Yet, we do not have a clear idea of what it is the HOA desires. They say they don't want vegetation growing higher than the eaves, but that's not what they mean. They mean not over the eaves. Lots of owners in our[...]
Help Jim Cronin from the Real Estate Tomato After Paradise Fire

Help Jim Cronin from the Real Estate Tomato After Paradise Fire

The Camp Fire in Butte County that wiped out the town of Paradise and still blazing is on everybody's minds in Sacramento. We can't help but breathe the smoky air and stare at the hazy orange sun, all the while feeling helpless. One of my friends, JaCi Wallace, mentioned a few days ago that Jim Cronin from the Real Estate Tomato had lost his home in Paradise. She saw it on Facebook. (Facebook is not a place I go very often.) Now, it's probably been 10 years or more since I've talked to Jim Cronin, but his website was one[...]
What Home Buyers Can Now Expect in Sacramento Real Estate

What Home Buyers Can Now Expect in Sacramento Real Estate

One thing to get straight right up front about what home buyers can now expect in Sacramento real estate is the market is not crashing. Our market is definitely not a bubble waiting to burst. Too many owners have too much equity and a higher number of sales have no loan at all. The scary no-doc loans given to any person with a pulse is absolutely not happening. However, what home buyers can now expect in our housing market is softer pricing. There are no smart sellers hoping for "my way or the highway" anymore. Instead, smart sellers are viewing the[...]
First-Time Home Buyers Will Love a Home in Rio Linda

First-Time Home Buyers Will Love a Home in Rio Linda

If you want to love a home in Rio Linda, this is the perfect place for qualified first-time home buyers. First, it is affordable, and qualifies for FHA and VA financing. Maybe a buyer is using down payment assistance, which means the down payment might be zero if the buyer qualifies for certain programs. Second, the location is lovely. It's located in a cul-de-sac, surrounded by neighbors who are crying at the moment because the present owners are moving away. Everybody seems to know everybody else. And third, the home is ready to move into. No work to do. Well, saying there[...]
Sacramento Sellers Ask: Where Do Buyers Come From?

Sacramento Sellers Ask: Where Do Buyers Come From?

There are many myths in the Sacramento real estate business, including an assortment of wrong answers about where do buyers come from. Sellers tend to believe a myth because they don't really know how real estate works. I'm also not so certain that some agents don't feed into that myth. I often find myself unwinding twisted tales that sellers believe because some agent made up crap. You wouldn't believe the stuff they say, or maybe you would. Sellers have told me that other agents swore up and down that they had tons of buyers waiting to purchase their home. That's[...]
