Real Estate Tips
If a Realtor shows you property are you committed to using her? Well, it depends. An interesting scenario happened today. Last week I met an agent and his buyers, at my Ranch listing in Elk Grove. There were several people and they seemed interested. I could tell the agent had not met the buyers before as he shook hands and said happy to meet you.
Yesterday a Realtor called me about setting up an appointment to see the Ranch. She said the buyers had already seen the property. I asked her if they had seen it at an open house? She said, “well no” and then dodged the question moving to another comment about the property. Next, I asked for the buyer’s names for security reasons at the seller’s request.
Rural real estate pricing is anything but cookie cutter. There is a wide range of pricing as the country property is mostly custom homes. There is an HOA in one rural real estate subdivision in south county, that feels like a neighborhood. Lot size can vary greatly. There is little price difference between 5-10 acres.
The size of the main home and the number of additional residences and outbuildings has an influence on the final price. Set up for animals on a property has a direct impact on buyers. There is an extensive amount of work and analysis to price properly.
Wild Wednesday real estate. What a day, as it starts with an office meeting, team meetings, two new listings, rescuing a homeless kitten, negotiating repair requests. Then, communications on listings and escrows, over 200 emails, 35 texts and 15 phone conversations later, it was a crazy Wednesday real estate. This is not a tedious job, lol.
If you want to list or sell a property with Realtors who can ride out the busiest day and still find time to market your property, call Weintraub & Wallace Realtors, at 916-233-6759.
A blog a day keeps the doctor away, or is it is “an apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Either way, both blogging and eating an apple a day are healthy things to do. I try to do both, and sometimes I do them together. Late at night, when I’m preparing to write a blog, and I really want to eat a candy bar or a big bowl of ice cream, instead I often grab a big fat juicy apple and put my laptop in dictation talk -to- text mode.
Terrific Tuesday ended today upon arrival home from work at 10:30 PM. I had a late appointment in another county with a 90-year-old, very sharp client. She wanted to review all of the disclosures and of course that took several hours. This was one of those 5-hour appointments that can happen on a few occasions. There was a lot to see as the HOA area is as large as a small city and has an amazing lake. This community has everything, but then that is another blog post.
Terrific Tuesday in Sacramento real estate can mean many things to many people. We closed an escrow on Boathouse in Natomas. Today on terrific Tuesday, the funds wire into our seller’s account. Also, the buyer’s agent and I both get paid today. So far, so good, lots of positive things are happening. Also, today sent out a multiple counter offer for another listing in Natomas. It is due back by the end of the day today. This seller is going to be very excited to get into a purchase contract. It is turning out to be a terrific Tuesday, but wait there is more.
