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

Inspiration for writing a blog 7 days per week, necessary? Some days there are some very interesting occurrences that are really fun to write about. Some days it may not be fun at all.  A blog could be about an escrow with a very difficult agent, who made you want to pull your hair out. Sometimes frustration provides fuel for interesting dialogue and a great conversation online.

Some days there may not be an exciting topic at all, as nothing exciting comes to mind. As you write, the topic begins to bloom and the words just come.  A title and the photo are the key ingredients for your blog. Picking the right photo is part of the process. A great photo provides a visual cue that may help engage a reader. read more

Cleaning Swimming Pools On Father’s Day

Father's Day

Cleaning swimming pools on Father’s Day is not what most peoples’ idea of a celebration is. Well, if you are my sister, Cathie, then it is because she is determined at whatever she commits to doing. That is Cathie in the photo above.

She was working away cleaning the swimming pool to be ready for the grandkids to enjoy it this summer. My brother-in-law Greg was working on fixing fence and doors, as well as tending to the garden and fixing the dog house. Cathie and Greg are both licensed Realtors as well. It was a family affair as we all had jobs to do on this Father’s Day. read more

Can a Con Artist Swindle a Buyer and Move Her Across State Lines?

swindle a buyer

Can a con artist swindle a buyer and move her across state lines? Yes, evidently. I previously met a buyer on Zillow. She was relocating from Texas to Sacramento. We talked for months before her visit. She said both she and her husband were moving here as she had family in the area. Her husband had inherited several million dollars from outside the USA from a deceased relative. He was about to retire as an engineer on an oil tanker job at sea.

She was interested in looking at homes for sale in Sacramento. Their attorney was finalizing the transfer of funds to the U.S. What a sweet person she was. She had retired a few years prior and said that her husband was much younger with a thick accent. He was raising two young children as his wife had tragically died young, leaving his kids motherless. read more
