Sacramento Real Estate
Every Land Park agent likes to think of her new listing in Land Park as a truly incredible Land Park home for sale, but this particular home features all of your hot buttons. Privacy, space, luxurious updates, tasteful colors, modern blends with Old World, it’s all here. Coupled with energy-saving devices such as a tankless water heater for endless hot water, you will find all newer flooring, light fixtures, interior and exterior doors, copper plumbing, updated electrical and dual pane windows. Life-time transferrable warranty on roof.
Can a Realtor have a felony record? Well, there’s one way to find out; you can go to this link at the California Department of Real Estate License Lookup, also known as the DRE. You fill out a name or a license number.
When we receive an offer on a property, I always check the license number on the DRE site. I can make sure they have a license that is valid without any disciplinary issues or suspensions. If there are court records, you will find those documents attached. Then, the next step is MLS online to look up a buyer’s agent production numbers. It is important to know whether this is a newer agent and or does the agent have enough transactions completed to work without supervision.
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.
When Sacramento buyer’s agents send clients to open houses unaccompanied and they later write an offer, it still stuns me. If clients do not need their agent’s guidance, do they really need their agent? Open houses are heavily visited by buyers without their agent. This happens as regular as clockwork. It is no longer an exception but now more of a rule that agents send their buyers to open houses.
There are of course some agents who actually show up to our open houses with clients. We understand that an agent may be holding an open house and can’t make it to an open house at the same time a client wants to see it. Of course, they could plan to see it after their open house or send another associate to attend with them. At the very least they can go back with the clients a second time to see the property and then write an offer.
Our November 2019 Sacramento fall home sales is an interesting time. The article below in italics, “Welcome to the Sacramento Fall Home Selling Market,” was written in 2012 by my partner, Elizabeth Weintraub. So, let’s now look at current interpretation of current market trends in 2019 and you will see how similar they are to conditions in 2012. It’s uncanny.
Our November weather has been many warm sunny days, high 70s and even a few 80 degree days. This has extended the fall selling season as it is busy right now and we are fast approaching Thanksgiving.
