Sacramento Realtor has Oral Surgery and request for repairs go hand in hand. Only in real estate can you not take a few days off to heal up and this was no exception. Two repair requests came in and a boatload of work. Even when we are under the weather our clients come first. One request was so ridiculous that escrow fell apart. The other one had many local ordinances that we wondered how would it close? The buyer’s agent from Woodland had a list of repair people who did the work at half the cost. The buyer’s agent set all the work to be billed to escrow! Sheri has been terrific. Luckily my resources helped pull this escrow together, she is terrific.
Is Martin Luther King Day a Realtor holiday? This day began like any other day, hustle and bustle. We have a new Carmichael listing coming soon and we were busy getting the agreement signed. There are some legal overlays, so an attorney had to review. Both sellers have to sign it. We should be in MLS on market status by Friday. What a beautiful property, and be sure to read that post in a Coming Soon listing blog promotion. We should have photos next week.
Also, we received an offer on our Oak Park listing on 48th today, so we responded right away with a seller counter offer. Our escrows needed updating as they are in process. With appraisals due next week, we have our handyman getting them ready with smoke detectors and CO2 detectors.
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.
On our Natomas listing, the Realtor takes keys after showing a listing. Can you believe it? Our lockboxes register the time and the buyer’s agent’s contact information. An agent called me 15 minutes after that last Realtor showed it. She said the lockbox was open and no key was in it.
We immediately looked online found the previous agent who showed it and she had taken the key. I called and asked her to please bring it back asap as an agent was at the property waiting to show it and could not get in. Her excuse was that the buyer had handed her all of her keys and she must have gotten them confused. This is why we have vendor boxes on the property as a back up for an extra key.
A Realtor’s annual physical is always interesting. To learn all the things about your health is always interesting. You learn so much about how to improve all of your scores on the health profile.
What is important is that you have a physical and compare how other people you know with health issues are trying to improve their health.
If you are a Realtor and want to sell real estate for a very long time, a good idea is to complete a Realtor’s annual physical.
