Getting More Money Out of a Low Appraisal in West Sacramento
March 28th, 2023
When the seller of a home in West Sacramento contacted this Sacramento REALTOR, he already had a different listing agent in mind, an agent who would charge less than the commission that agents like me charge and he was just about ready to hire this other real estate agent. See, this is where some sellers typically go off track. They tend to focus solely on the commission and not on results. They don't know any better. They think about saving 1% of the sales price, for example, and don't look ahead to how much they are probably losing during escrow[...]
Why the Sales Price a Sacramento Home Seller Wants Does Not Matter
March 21st, 2023
One of the questions a Sacramento home seller asked me last week during a FaceTime interview is why didn't I ask her how much they wanted to sell the home for, because every other agent they talked to had asked this question. I was very honest, as is my nature, and I explained that it doesn't matter. Because it doesn't matter how much the Sacramento home seller wants. That's actually pretty much immaterial in a transaction; what is more important, what takes center stage, is the appraised value, which is based on comparable sales. In fact, asking how much a home[...]
What if Sacramento Real Estate Sold and Closed in 3 Days?
March 14th, 2023
What do you think would happen if you could buy a home in Sacramento and close within 3 days? Wouldn't it be sorta cool if we could demonstrably alter the way Sacramento real estate is sold and buyers did all of their due diligence upfront, meaning they came to the table with an appraisal and underwriting approval? Back East, buyers often conduct a home inspection prior to contract ratification. This idea isn't so far fetched. You can buy just about any kind of product, even an illegal product from overseas, and receive it within 3 days. If you were to refinance[...]
Selling 2 Homes to Buy as a Couple
March 7th, 2023
A couple called yesterday to inquire about a pending sale I have listed in West Sacramento and whether they could see it. They plan on selling 2 homes in Sacramento to buy one as a couple. I'm not sure where they found the listing online but not every website out there lists the status of homes online. Many just show the home for sale and they don't tell the website visitor whether the home has sold or is pending, which is why it's oh-so-much better to get your listings directly from a Sacramento REALTOR who can sign you up for[...]
The Downside to Selling Sacramento Rental Homes
February 28th, 2023
Being tenants in a single-family home is no guarantee for the tenants that many Sacramento rental homes will remain a forever home for a family, especially if the tenancy is month-to-month. Often, when leases expire they are not renewed. If not renewed, the rental agreements then revert to month-to-month tenancy, and with that comes the possibility that the tenant could be booted out in the event of sale. Sure, the tenant gets 60 days notice by the owner but it doesn't change the fact the tenant has to relocate. Most tenants, though, will move sooner. Still, while I'm standing in these Sacramento[...]
