Instead of plucking a number out of thin air, there are better ways to figure out how much to offer for a home.

If a Realtor shows you property are you committed to using her? Well, it depends. An interesting scenario happened today. Last week I met an agent and his buyers, at my Ranch listing in Elk Grove. There were several people and they seemed interested. I could tell the agent had not met the buyers before as he shook hands and said happy to meet you.
Yesterday a Realtor called me about setting up an appointment to see the Ranch. She said the buyers had already seen the property. I asked her if they had seen it at an open house? She said, “well no” and then dodged the question moving to another comment about the property. Next, I asked for the buyer’s names for security reasons at the seller’s request.
West Sacramento fireworks and baseball at Raley Field was a fun place to be on July 3rd. In addition, I was able to spend time with my good friends from “The Sign Post,” Peg and Jim Eggleston. I have known them for about 18 years. Their company puts up most of the real estate for sale signs in over 4 counties. Tonight, I was honored with an invite to their private baseball booth to watch the River Cats. As an added bonus, a rare evening out, combined with watching the famous West Sacramento fireworks, at Raley Field.
