Buying Sacramento Home
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.
Real Estate on Thanksgiving 2020 in quarantine, what a year it has been. As we near the last month of the year, it is EZ to be thankful. Real Estate has been very busy with historic low-interest rates. The buyers are still lining up to buy homes. Some sellers are moving out of state, others moving into larger homes to share with their families. Covid19 has created many college students moving back home, so many households need more space. An at-home office or home-schooling area and an extra bedroom or two are a huge plus for a listing right now.

Trends in real estate are ever fascinating. Just as a flock of birds in the sky suddenly move in a different direction altogether, seemingly for no reason. The momentum in real estate is too omnipresent. Some people think greed and emotion have always driven the markets and real life in general. I think the driving common denominator of the two is desire.

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.
Sacramento heat waves, staycations with swimming pools, the real question is fiberglass or gunite? Gunite pools, of course, take more time to install and ongoing maintenance depends on finishes like gunite or pebble tec. Fiberglass comes with prefab pools, so construction time is much less.
COVID-19 finds most of us staying at home, and a swimming pool would be fabulous entertainment. Here are some things to know: The pool companies are slammed; because many people want to enjoy some time in a pool, so fiberglass pools are growing in demand. Also, well water is very difficult for pools. Saltwater and fiberglass could be your answer. Of course, some will say “no way” to fiberglass. However, many reviews online from homeowners state they were delighted with the fiberglass pools.
