After Your Listing Expires

After your Listing expires, is a great article previously written by Elizabeth for another website. This situation described below happens all the time to agents when they expire out or cancel a listing to obtain a new MLS #. Why pull a new MLS #? By design to freshen up a listing with a price reduction, it sells homes. Enjoy, as it is a good read.

When a listing expires, all of a sudden, sellers start to hear from real estate agents. They will receive letters in the mail, telephone calls and a few aggressive agents may even show up on the doorstep, ringing the bell. All this activity might make a seller think, “Hey, my property is really hot!” But you might be better off looking in the mirror to find the reason your listing expired. read more

How To Cancel a Listing or Purchase Contract

How to cancel a listing

Wondering how to cancel a listing or purchase contract? Below is a previous post on another site written by partner Elizabeth Weintraub. What is so interesting — it’s as relevant today as when written, more than a decade ago. These questions are asked often by the public when visiting our website about: Sacramento Real Estate.

“It’s too bad that you can’t just rip up a contract to terminate an association or an agreement, but that’s not how it works. To find out if your contract can be canceled, the first step to take is to read the contract. Contracts typically contain a provision for cancellation. read more

Leaving Money on the Table When You Sell Your Home.

leaving money on the table

How can you know if you’re leaving money on the table when you sell your home? For starters, why not hire a top Sacramento Realtor with hundreds of positive testimonials, so you don’t leave money on the table! When you see a team with more than a thousand sales and hundreds of 5 star reviews, you can take away that it wasn’t luck. Skill is how you continue to grow your business after decades of experience. You update and evolve with the times.

Realtors who have a strong web presence and stay relevant in the use of technology tools and marketing do not simply price a listing low and throw it on MLS, like some might think. When we listed homes for sale, say, in the early 1980s, a For Sale sign was the marketing, on top of door knocking. There was a blue book with property lisings. Buyers often walked into a real estate office and talked to an agent on “floor duty.” Very rarely do buyers walk into real estate offices today to look for property. Buyers look on the internet today and, guess what? No internet available in 1980. We have come a long way baby, LOL. read more

Top Agents in Sacramento Receive 5-Star Reviews

top sacramento agents

Most of the top agents in Sacramento tend to receive 5-star reviews, but some reviews exceed even 5-stars. Some reviews are simply coming up roses every single time.

Going on appointments is what a busy Sacramento Realtor does; however, after all is said and done, smelling like a real estate rose is no easy task at the end of each day. (This photo was taken in my rose garden.)

Talking to new people every day is the life of a listing agent. Some people will not ever turn into clients, some may take years, some things just happen in their life and they don’t list. The key to all this is to recognize that we are like the rose in this photo, vibrant, full of life, and open to all who want to linger near us. read more

How Cheating Realtors is an Upfront Disclosure From Sellers

is cheating an upfront disclosure

When is cheating Realtors an upfront disclosure in the home selling process from a seller’s point of view? I had a phone call today from a future seller who had already talked to and chosen a Realtor. So why was he calling our firm to ask me questions, why didn’t he ask his Realtor?

His first questions were about what types of agency did we use when when listing a home. What he wanted to really know was if he could get the home listed and not pay a Realtor under certain circumstance. It got me to thinking about an old boyfriend who told me upfront about potential cheating and he asked questions about how I felt about cheating. I told him I would drop him like a rock in a deep pond! Why go into a relationship with someone devaluing you up front? read more
