How to Attract Listings in Sacramento By Going to Hawaii

Some of my clients know first-hand that I might pay a bit more attention to my listings in Sacramento when I am in Hawaii. That might sound counter-productive to some of you who would do the complete opposite if given a chance. But going to our house in Hawaii is like arriving at my source of personal power. I dive right into the Aloha. It’s not like I must go to the ocean to swim or drive the coastline. Because I’m perfectly content on my lanai, working on my computer against a panoramic backdrop of the ocean off in the distance.

Especially when I am the only person at the house. I don’t even have a cat or a neighborhood cat to distract me, although I won’t discount the geckos, lizards and occasional mongoose. It’s a quiet environment that lets me focus on my listings, alone in the warm Kona breezes blowing across the lanai.

No wonder I am so at peace and happy in Hawaii.

Of course, all I have to do to attract more listings in Sacramento is to print out that boarding pass. Like magic. Bam. The phone starts to ring. I managed to squeeze in one last listing appointment yesterday before I left. When you read this, I will be 30,000 feet in the air, enjoying breakfast over the Pacific. Two and a half movies later, I’m in Honolulu changing planes to Big Island.

I also just picked up another listing in Sacramento yesterday when a buyer flaked out. We had to put the home back on the market, but we’ve also got a group of interested buyers who did not act fast enough. The buyer’s agent said the buyer decided after going into escrow that he cannot afford to buy a home, or his loan was too much, hard to say. Cold feet. So many buyers develop cold feet, it seems.

It’s entirely possible that before I come back home to Sacramento that I’ll take more listings in Sacramento. With technology — internet and cell — that’s all I need to sell homes in Sacramento. The new listing on this page is a view from the street in Laguna West, which is in Elk Grove, a suburb of Sacramento. I love to sell homes in this neighborhood; it’s one of my favorites.

These sellers have a list of things to do before going on the market, but they could be ready in a couple of weeks. This will probably be priced in the lower to mid-700s, if you’re interested. You can call me at 916.233.6759, but please note the time difference in Hawaii is 3 hours earlier than Sacramento. Mahalo!
