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[...]
Following up on Buyer Leads Before a Listing Hits MLS

Following up on Buyer Leads Before a Listing Hits MLS

You can bet one of my priorities for a new listing is following up on buyer leads. Just because I refuse to work directly with a buyer in dual agency doesn't mean I won't follow up or talk to buyers. Of course, buyers are free to choose any agent they want, and hopefully they will pick a professional agent with many closings under her or his belt. But I will also work with Uncle Joe's cousin if that's what it takes, knowing I'll end up doing that agent's job as well as mine, and it's OK. Whatever it takes to[...]
Buyers Who Call Listing Agents Now Have More Ways to Sue Dual Agents

Buyers Who Call Listing Agents Now Have More Ways to Sue Dual Agents

Who isn't looking for more ways to sue dual agents in California? I hear from a lot of real estate clients around the country who are upset with their agents, and many of those complaints center on dual agency. They read an article I wrote about dual agency or contingencies or some other legal matter in real estate and call. In case you don't know, in simple terms, dual agency occurs when the seller's agent is also the buyer's agent. This is when sellers find out too late that paying their own agent to represent a buyer might not be[...]
One Way to Sell a House in Sacramento

One Way to Sell a House in Sacramento

Is this one way to sell a house in Sacramento? My team member Josh shot this photo yesterday. I don't know if you can read the small print, but the rider sign hanging below the panel reads: "Free Pizza With Purchase of House." Is it a joke? Does the agent own a pizza joint? Is the pizza frozen or fresh? How many pizzas do you get? Do you get pizza for a year delivered to your house or does the agent just send a pizza to the closing table? So many questions over one way to sell a house in Sacramento.[...]
