Valentine's Day In Sacramento Real Estate, $weet For $ellers Or Buyers?

Valentine’s Day in Sacramento real estate, $weet for $ellers or buyers? February is a month when we think about Valentine’s Day. Typically, we see sellers preparing to put homes on the upcoming spring market. Buyers are generally slower to start a re-entry in the home buying search. After reading the January 2020 Sacramento Housing Report, the buyers are out home shopping in full force. They are rapidly buying up the available inventory of homes. Many sellers are receiving multiple offers, and selling very close to list price or over list price, across the board. read more

Is Martin Luther King Day a Realtor Holiday?

Is Martin Luther King Day a Realtor holiday? This day began like any other day, hustle and bustle. We have a new Carmichael listing coming soon and we were busy getting the agreement signed. There are some legal overlays, so an attorney had to review. Both sellers have to sign it. We should be in MLS on market status by Friday. What a beautiful property, and be sure to read that post in a Coming Soon listing blog promotion. We should have photos next week.

Also, we received an offer on our Oak Park listing on 48th today, so we responded right away with a seller counter offer. Our escrows needed updating as they are in process. With appraisals due next week, we have our handyman getting them ready with smoke detectors and CO2 detectors. read more

Holiday Cookies On Christmas Eve 2019

Holiday Cookies On Christmas Eve 2019

Making holiday cookies on Christmas Eve 2019. My task for tonight is to get the ever so special Dot’s Fruit-Cookie dough ready. No, these are not just any ordinary cookies. The recipe is 3 generations old. I managed to get it from my mother in law, over 20 years ago. Her name was Dot, short for Dorothy. She giggled as she told me the story of when her friends asked her to share her mother’s recipe. She said she always left a little something out of her recipe. Her friends said Dot’s cookies were the best, that they just never tasted as good as hers. They never knew she had given them an incomplete recipe. read more

Only One Day left before Christmas 2019

With only one day left before Christmas 2019, are you ready? Today was a crazy day. One client signing at the title company and we put a probate listing into escrow with 8 offers. Then in between our real estate duties, we needed to pick up deliveries at the office. Next, a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond for a few last-minute gifts on Santa’s list. Now the baking marathon begins at 0800 so a trip to the grocery store. Yes, I had my list and I was checking it twice, lol. I also grabbed a few gift cards for those hard to shop for folks. read more
