So, you want to be a probate specialist selling real estate? There is always some sort of issues with title and or the heirs. These matters can take months to get straightened out. Meanwhile, you are talking with the attorney and the seller regularly moving toward having keys made and meeting the locksmith, that is once you have the court orders.
Next, you hope you can get in to evaluate the property, except when squatters are living in the property as per the photo below. This is a real photograph after calling 911 at one of my new probate properties. The Sacramento Police department showed up, and they were so very caring and helpful. Do not ever go inside with squatters as you do not know if they have weapons or are on dangerous narcotics. Always call the men and women in blue as this needs to be handled by the professionals.
Is lot size correct on your home? This is an interesting question. Recently on a listing, the county tax agency reported on their public site, a lot size of well over an acre. As Realtors, we are not supposed to do investigation on a property at the county. An investigation is the responsibility of the buyer or seller, depending on circumstances.
Agents help facilitate inspectors but we have no qualifications to be an expert at interpreting county records. Another risk an agent takes is you deal with one person at the counter who says one thing; but, if you report this information to your client and later they find out it was incorrect, it could be an issue. The legal departments at our brokerage cringe over stuff like this.
The Sacramento Trendgraphix Report for November 2019 includes Sacramento County single-family homes. No other criteria are included so that we can get a broad understanding of what is happening. If you want to get updates for a specific area, even down to a ZIP code or multiple ZIP codes, or multi-family properties or land, sign up for Sacramento Home Sale Reports by ZIP Code.
The following blog was written entirely by our team member, Josh Amolsch. It is an excellent overview of the November market. This data is published a month behind to ensure all the information is available. We are so proud to have Josh as a member of our team. He works very hard to provide information to his buyers so they are educated about the hyper-local target market when they make offers. — JaCi Wallace
How to have a new smile in one day? Well, when we sell a house in Sacramento, the seller has a huge smile, but that’s not the smile I’m referring to. While watching a TV show on botched cosmetic surgery, I saw a segment on cosmetic dentistry. What was mind-blowing was a gentleman featured who had been through several dental surgeries gone wrong. One of several issues, his dental implants were not screwed into the bone; he sought answers in the UK.
The amazing surgeons, doctors Anthony and Michael Zabutz of the Smile In A Day Dental Centers, are brothers. They are located in Petersborough and Folkstone, UK. The first surgeon did the demolition of the patient’s existing teeth and the other installed the new teeth. In under 12 hours, this patient had a new smile in one day. It was amazing to watch. I can’t imagine what it costs, but the patient walked out with a new set of uppers and lowers set in permanently using titanium screws.
