When Does a Home Buyer get Possession?

When Does a Home Buyer get Possession?

New real estate agents have it kinda tough in a market where they are supposed to know what they don't know, especially when it comes to the final walkthrough for the buyer. The problem seems to be that some think it's a time for the buyer to conduct a final inspection, which it is not. I'm not sure where they get that idea, but probably from the same place that other bad ideas come from, the land of assumption. To get to the land of assumption, you've first got to cross the river of confusion and hope you don't have[...]
Why Security Questions are Impossible to Answer

Why Security Questions are Impossible to Answer

What damn good is a security question if the danged question is so freakin' difficult that you get it wrong? I understand the need for security questions for certain types of accounts because, after all, a password, coupled with an image, is not enough precaution in our cyber-hacking world. Although I'm not so certain anything is hack proof for North Korea or China. Short of an eyeball imprint. But then I watched an inflight movie on my way home from Vanuatu one winter, I Origins, which suggests that eyeballs are reincarnated, so I don't know what to believe. I just transferred[...]
Chickens in the Road and Fairytale Town

Chickens in the Road and Fairytale Town

My office is always running some kind of "togetherness" team-building promotional event for its real estate agents, but expecting this Sacramento REALTOR to dress up like a chicken should not be one of them. To be fair, this did not happen in real life but it is what I dreamed last night, and let's face it, sometimes dreams turn into reality; at least mine often do. They styled my hair into a chicken comb -- btw, am I the only person in the world to google: what is the name of the thing on top of a chicken's head -- and[...]
The Fate of an Appraiser is Worse Than an Internet Mortgage Lender

The Fate of an Appraiser is Worse Than an Internet Mortgage Lender

A friend promised yesterday: tomorrow will be better. Well, honestly, tomorrow will be different but it won't necessarily be better because there is always room for stuff to get much worse. And tomorrow is already here. The important thing is to keep a sense of humor about the roller-coaster ride called Sacramento real estate. Because managing real estate transactions as a listing agent involves sometimes jumping into the middle of a tornado, even if it's not necessarily your job to fix the situation. One of the biggest problems we're facing right now is a shortage of appraisers. We are selling about[...]
In Defense of Multiple Offers from Sacramento Home Buyers

In Defense of Multiple Offers from Sacramento Home Buyers

The biscuit recipe for Sacramento home buyers that is guaranteed to drive multiple offers in the Sacramento real estate market goes like this: add 2 cups of a highly desirable home in the right location, perfect condition and priced well, toss in a pinch of salt representing all of the other homes for sale in that particular neighborhood (none), stir in 2 teaspoons of pending sales, cut in a stick of low interest rates and blend well with a cup of eager Sacramento home buyers. Drop on to a Sunday open house and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes[...]
