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

Real Estate Agents Remain Independent Contractors

Real Estate Agents Remain Independent Contractors

Yes, real estate agents remain independent contractors in the 2019 legislation report from the Sacramento Association of Realtors. This is important to the many who want to remain as a business owner and not an employee of a brokerage. Below is a partial excerpt from SAR, Sacramento Association Of Realtors, report.

This new law follows the Dynamex ruling and puts the ABC test that came out of that case into state law by classifying several types of independent contractors as employees. AB 5 allows real estate agents to be treated as independent contractors under the Business & Professions Code section § 10032 as long as they meet three conditions, 1) hold a real estate license; 2) substantially all of their remunerations is directly related to sales or other output rather than to the number of hours worked, and 3) the parties have a written contract stating that the individual will not be treated as an employee with respect to those services. read more

August Real Estate Sales

August Real Estate Sales

August real estate sales in Sacramento have been brisk. We are looking forward to seeing the August numbers. It has been quite a month. There are some clients that have been amazing to work with and just a lot of fun. Sometimes we are talking to clients at midnight, yes whatever it takes is our motto. We provide service, plus.

Yesterday, our assistant Adina, was working in Oak Park assisting with facilitating an alarm install on our new listing. Our gardener has been there cleaning the exterior up. Luckily, Adina has a neighbor who is a welder. The welder went over and fixed the iron bars on the gates to slow the break-ins. The bars had been bent back creating a large enough space to squeeze through. read more

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.

— JaCi Wallace

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
