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 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 on[...]
The Kiss of Death for a Sacramento MLS Listing

The Kiss of Death for a Sacramento MLS Listing

Almost everybody makes fun of bad MLS photos, but no photos at all is the kiss of death for a Sacramento MLS listing. You know, some people experience reoccurring nightmares of appearing naked as a jay bird in public. My idea of a nightmare is having a listing go live in MLS without any photographs.

Because without photos, buyers won't even bother to[...]
Sacramento Housing Market November 2018 Report

Sacramento Housing Market November 2018 Report

The Sacramento Housing Market November 2018 report is not surprising to me. Our inventory is up 25% over last year at this time. That is a huge uptick in inventory, even though it dropped slightly from last month. But an uptick in inventory over last year is not necessarily a good thing because it has resulted in lower closed sales. Comparing November of 2017 to this past month, we've seen a drop of 12.6% in closed sales. Bad news for many Sacramento real estate agents whose income may drop, but good news for buyers. Our median sales price in Sacramento is[...]
Should You Tell Sellers When Agents Are Sending an Offer?

Should You Tell Sellers When Agents Are Sending an Offer?

In my real estate practice, I feel sellers prefer to be kept informed, even if something never happens. Because a Sacramento listing agent can certainly throw out a disclaimer. Like, listen, Mrs. Seller, don't get all excited but this agent says he is sending an offer. In some ways, I know you want to hear everything, and in other ways, maybe not. So you let me know what you want to hear. The problem with deciding to tell sellers when agents are sending an offer is the offer might never materialize. That is the downside. If the seller gets her hopes[...]
