Home marketing and advertising should have one common goal. Contrary to popular belief, that goal is NOT to sell your home. The goal is to get a buyer interested enough to LOOK at your home.

The premise is simple. If you can’t get buyers in the door, you aren’t going to get an offer. So, everything you do should focus on getting buyers to call you for an appointment or call your agent for a showing. read more

Why Do Sellers Reject Offers?

Sellers reject offers

Why do sellers reject offers? So many reasons. Let’s focus on a few key points. There are a variety of reasons that offers are not countered and usually, it is because of a combination of factors that negatively affect an offer. Multiple inconsistencies spell out a warning of murky waters ahead.

Hello Sacramento Summer

Sacramento Summer

Hello, Sacramento summer and temps of 95 degrees plus. The heat is upon us. Keeping animals watered and plants hydrated as well as our drinking water every hour is so important. Working outdoors in the heat today I started feeling very tired with a serious lack of energy. I realized I was dehydrated so I immediately stopped at the store and bought a couple of bottles of water and began to drink. Within 30 minutes I felt like my old self.

Sacramento is known for hot temperatures thank goodness the evenings include delta breezes. The hot temperatures did not stop open house traffic. We had 3 team open houses today and all had good traffic, over 50 groups. 95 degrees buyers are still out looking. Dedicated home shoppers will look no matter what the temperature. When we say hello Sacramento summer that means good news as this signals home-buying season. read more
