Tips for Writing Purchase Offers in a Foreign Market Like Sacramento

Tips for Writing Purchase Offers in a Foreign Market Like Sacramento

Being an out-of-area agent working at writing purchase offers in a foreign market must be really tough. For example, as a Sacramento Realtor, I would not want to represent a buyer to purchase a home in San Francisco. I would refer that buyer to an agent in San Francisco. I don't know the values, the neighborhood pockets or even much about local customs. Except I know enough to realize agents in San Francisco do a lot on the front-end of the transaction. In Sacramento, most of our due diligence is during escrow. To be blunt, my 40+ years in the real[...]
How Long Should You Wait for Tardy People to Show Up?

How Long Should You Wait for Tardy People to Show Up?

The length of time to wait for tardy people to show up for an appointment depends on the type of person you're waiting for. I divide them into people you know and strangers. Generally the people you know are friends, coworkers, family or exes. The strangers tend to be professionals of some sort with whom you do expect to do business. Or, you could be a professional meeting a client. In my occupation, that of a Sacramento Realtor, it depends on whether the client is a buyer or a seller. Usually, you would meet a buyer for the first time at[...]

Respect Home Buyers in Sacramento By Not Speaking Real Estate Jargon

Respect Home Buyers in Sacramento By Not Speaking Real Estate Jargon

As a career Sacramento Realtor, I try not to use real estate jargon with our home buyers. We speak it so much to each other. If you were to listen to a convo between myself and the most wonderful transaction coordinator in the world, we may as well be speaking Klingon. Here is an example: We need to issue the NTBP to sign the CR 2, and we may as well throw in the DTC since we're so close to docs. What is that real estate jargon? It means we need to send the buyer a Notice to Buyer to Perform,[...]
Why Your Realtor Cannot Show Homes in a Safe Neighborhood

Why Your Realtor Cannot Show Homes in a Safe Neighborhood

Hardly a buyer exists who has not at one time or another asked a Sacramento Realtor to show homes in a safe neighborhood. It's such a normal expectation. Like asking for a three-car garage or homes with hardwood floors. Part of the buying process. Except your Realtor cannot show homes in a safe neighborhood. This tends to surprise buyers. Yesterday I talked with a new buyer who will be working with the team. He lives in the Bay Area and she is in Canada. People from all over are moving to Sacramento because it's one of the last great places to[...]
