Should We Be Afraid of iBuyers like Zillow?

Should We Be Afraid of iBuyers like Zillow?

Should we be afraid of iBuyers like Zillow? Have you have heard the crazy news about Zillow Offers, which is owned and operated by Zillow.  The popular real estate website, that makes near-instant cash offers on homes - a practice known as iBuying? Zillow basically buys the house online directly from the seller, slaps on paint, makes a few repairs, and then turns around and sells it.

Feral Chickens and Chickens in Fair Oaks

Feral Chickens and Chickens in Fair Oaks

Feral chickens and chickens in Fair Oaks; speaking of chickens, one of my mother's first jobs as a teenager, besides serving ice cream at Bridgemann's, was that of a chicken plucker at a chicken factory in Saint Paul. The chickens would come down the assembly line with their broken necks and feet still attached, while factory workers would grab them and furiously pull out their down and feathers—total yuck.

And even if you don't have kids of your own, you still have nieces and nephews and maybe even your next-door neighbor kids or kids at places where you volunteer to spend time with on Halloween. When we reach a certain age, most of us don't necessarily attend Halloween parties, but that doesn't mean we have to end up hungover and sleeping in the bathtub. There are other options for a party. This family in the photo above are clients who are looking to buy a home[...]
A 2-Minute Guide To Flood Insurance: Do You Need it?

A 2-Minute Guide To Flood Insurance: Do You Need it?

This is a timely blog by our lender Dan Tharp-- JaCi Wallace. When I heard a powerful "bomb cyclone" storm was hitting Northern California last week, I instantly thought about my Flood insurance. For many, they assume their property is covered for any type of detrimental occurrence that can take place. However, not all homeowners in Sacramento know that home insurance policies don’t necessarily cover damage related to a flood, as the risks are too great. As a result, homeowners must purchase flood insurance through a private company. Floods are one of the most common hazards in the US, costing billions[...]
