Ever wonder how to price rural property for sale in northern California when there are no comparable sales? This is not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. First, there are so many factors, one being construction type, like a log home. If you’re lucky enough to find another log home, that is a start; however, it won’t be the same size or may not have your desired 360-degree wrap-around porch. Again, it is a start. But the acreage — is it usable? Is it functional for raising animals or vineyards? So many variables.
June 2020 Sacramento housing, just another year, same old routine. Well, if the Sacramento housing market was a person, she may be saying those things. Since achieving my real estate license and subsequent membership with the Sacramento Association of Realtors in 2012, the Sacramento housing market has outpaced itself every year.
This year has been no different. The Pandemic no doubt affected real estate, but it has been quite the opposite of what everyone was thinking. Well, not the opposite of what the smart, experienced Realtors were saying. Sure, there were and still, are, some price adjustments happening, but look at the numbers below. Numbers never lie.
I sold my house and need to move out in a week happens more often than you might think. This happens to people we sell homes for when we receive a cash offer with a 10-day close of escrow. Many times sellers will say no as they believe it is impossible to move out in a week.
The question is can two people empty out a house, clean it, hand over the keys and exit in fewer than 7 days? Most people feel moving in a month’s time is difficult. What’s interesting is that my friends recently moved out: lock, stock and barrel in a week. They planned out what they were going to keep, what they were going to sell, and what they would donate.
Don’t believe the news. Or at least don’t believe a majority of it. You might think real estate is going the way of Blockbuster or disco if you watch the news these days. I can tell you with full certainty that it is not. In May, 1,556 homes went into escrow and that is 98% of the inventory that was available in Sacramento County in April 2020. The turnover rate in our area is incredible! Overall, pendings are up 46% from April 2020 and new listings are up 12.1% according to the May 2020 Housing Report for Sacramento County.
One of the leading causes of divorce can be financial — is an interesting blog topic from our preferred mortgage lender, Dan Tharp at Guild Mortgage. — JaCi Wallace
One of the leading causes of divorce can be financial. When a couples’ financial situation fails to measure up to expectations, and money stress gets so bad, they shut down. The communication between them often stops completely.
I have helped many couples obtain a mortgage to buy a home. They were laughing and smiling about the garden they were going to plant, or the BBQ they were going to invite me to. Only then to see one partner lose a job, then bills pile up. Next is the anger and the uncertainty starts to build. The next thing they know they are sitting down to talk about separating. It’s just plain awful.
