Elk Grove Entry Level Home Prices

Elk Grove Entry Level Home Prices

Elk Grove entry-level home prices starting at $350,000 plus are getting hard to find. My niece is home shopping and an 1,100 sq foot home is $350,000. If you want a larger home, say, 1,400+ square feet, it’s going to cost more. Elk Grove schools are in high demand, and that is one of the factors why so many people are moving here.

I have been looking several times per day for homes. I found one property with a huge lot and 1,700 square feet. It needed a new roof, new HVAC and had no landscaping in a giant back yard. Did I mention it was a duplex, so it is not a free-standing home? The kitchen is small, featuring limited cabinets. Too many issues need attention. read more

A Happy New Year In Sacramento 2020

New Year In Sacramento 2020

A happy New Year in Sacramento 2020 needed just the right photo. This picture looks like these two women were having “too much fun,” as if there is such a thing as too much. After looking at well over 100 photos, I knew instantly this was the perfect photo. Elizabeth and I both appreciate great photos that help tell our stories. The right photo is so important.

It was a quiet celebration for me at home with 6 pounds of huge crab legs from the Elk Grove Costco. Elk Grove real estate is becoming more popular and, so of course, it was time for a Costco. Living in the rural part of the greater Elk Grove area and being 7 minutes from Costco is a real plus for this Sacramento Realtor. read more

Elk Grove Real Estate and the Flu

Elk Grove Real Estate And The Flu

Elk Grove real estate and the flu go forward, no matter how sick a Realtor gets, the show must go on. When your immune system is on the blink, creativity for writing has not been accessible. I apologize for missing our daily posts and will be adding some blasts from the past postings that are still relevant today.

I may have missed writing the blogs, but we have not let our clients down. We sold several listings in the greater Sacramento area this week. When you have a team, there is an arsenal of resources available. There have been many challenges with home inspections and appraisals but we kept the wheels moving forward. read more

Being Named A Successor Trustee As A Professional Fiduciary

Professional Fiduciary

Being named a successor trustee as a Professional Fiduciary is a seriously responsible job. What made me think of this is I work with Professional Fiduciaries. They represent people who need representation as they don’t have a family member or a friend they trust enough to take the job. Often, they have no family.  

A Professional Fiduciary gets paid, of course. They go to doctors’ appointments, hospital stays, pick up prescriptions. They even purchase memory foam mattresses to keep their clients more comfortable. It is not inexpensive to have professional care, but it is a lot less than going into a care facility. Professional Fiduciary cases often prolong independent living in most cases. read more

Is Team Roping a Hobby?

Team Roping a Hobby

Is team roping a hobby to some or is it a second career to others? This photo is a picture of my son, J.T. Bradley, roping the horns of the steer; he is called the header. The heeler lassos the two hind feet (hooves). This is a timed event. If the heeler only ropes one hoof, a 5-point penalty is issued. Now each rider has a score, based on skill level. The teams are put together by a combined score. You always are not roping with the same partner; this depends on if your attempt received a score. If the team fails no score for the attempt. read more
