Writing Multiple Offers in Sacramento

WRITING MULTIPLE OFFERS IN SACRAMENTO

Writing multiple offers in Sacramento is a very timely blog post written by our very own exclusive buyer’s agent, Josh Amolsch. Enjoy. — JaCi Wallace.

These multiple offers are happening almost everywhere in the greater Sacramento area currently. Inventory, along with interest rates, is extremely low. What’s a buyer to do? Seek the advice of an experienced Realtor with local expertise. Try different strategies that take into account the specific needs of the seller.

How about changing what you are looking for? Look for properties that are overpriced and have been on the market while; these sellers may be motivated. But what about writing offers on multiple homes at once? It seems like a sound strategy, right? As a buyer recently told me, “I don’t want to sell myself short.” Well, I had to tell him that wouldn’t be happening, at least not with me as his Realtor. Yes, I would let go of a buyer who would ask me to transform into that shady agent no one likes. read more

Request An Appraisal Waiver When Purchasing A Home

Request An Appraisal Waiver When Purchasing A Home

Request an appraisal waiver when purchasing a home, can help you win in this competitive market. I was showing my sister homes and we had lost on a previous offer to cash. We found another property and they had to write an offer well over the list price. They called their lender to ask if the appraisal could be waived. We were not in contract yet. My sister was putting 20% down and having to make up the price difference between offer and list price. They called their lender and asked to run the automated loan approval with an appraisal waiver. read more

Waking Up to a Tree in The Bedroom

Waking Up to a Tree in The Bedroom

Waking up to a tree in the bedroom is a timely blog for Sacramento real estate, given our power outages in the last 24 hours. Very well written by our very own, Josh Amolsch. Enjoy. — JaCi Wallace.

Well, what do you blog about the morning after an above-average storm that caused power to go out multiple times and downed trees all over the city? That’s right, disclosure and inspection advice. There is little worse than waking up to a tree in the bedroom; though the pessimist could rattle off a list of daily occurrences that would meet or exceed that traumatic experience. I didn’t have a tree fall on my house, but I know a few people that had trees fall on their property. I guess if you have a big enough property or a small enough tree, it wouldn’t be such a big deal. Just cut it up when you have time, stack it and use it for firewood next winter. Just make sure you check if you can burn that day. (http://www.airquality.org/Residents/Fireplaces-Wood-Stoves/Check-Before-You-Burn) read more

Sacramento Realtor has Oral Surgery and Request for Repairs.

Sacramento Realtor has Oral Surgery and request for repairs

Sacramento Realtor has Oral Surgery and request for repairs go hand in hand. Only in real estate can you not take a few days off to heal up and this was no exception. Two repair requests came in and a boatload of work. Even when we are under the weather our clients come first. One request was so ridiculous that escrow fell apart. The other one had many local ordinances that we wondered how would it close?  The buyer’s agent from Woodland had a list of repair people who did the work at half the cost. The buyer’s agent set all the work to be billed to escrow!  Sheri has been terrific. Luckily my resources helped pull this escrow together, she is terrific. read more

How California Fires Are Affecting Sacramento Area Real Estate

How California Fires Are Affecting Sacramento Area Real Estate

How California fires are affecting Sacramento area real estate is a timely and brilliant blog. It is written by our exclusive buyer’s agent, Josh Amolsch. Enjoy, — JaCi Wallace.

I have realized over the years that things that are obvious to me are not always obvious to other people, and vice versa. We all live in our own little bubbles or “echo chambers” as I heard someone once say. We live “our own truth”, a sad but true reality for the misled.

If you were to ask my dentist how California fires are affecting Sacramento real estate, he might tell you that homes are sitting on the market longer right now because buyers don’t want to go out in the smoke to see homes. Well, no. Homes are flying off the shelf as if they were the mad rush in March 2020 for toilet paper. People don’t seem to care about the smoke-filled skies right now when it comes to buying a home. A steady stream of buyers keeps on coming in from the Bay Area. Since companies have found out that their employees can work from home, it seems they are taking advantage of that momentum. Boy, some commercial real estate is going to take a hit due to the lack of demand for brick and mortar. read more
