September 11th Is A Day Of Remembering

September 11th is a day of remembering

September 11th is a day of remembering for many people. There are certain days in your memory where you know where you were standing and what you were doing. It was a day I will forever remember. Also, it was my Sister’s birthday. This is a hard holiday for her as she doesn’t feel like celebrating on September 11th. We celebrate her birthday a few days after.

It is a day each year where I tend to work a bit harder. It was a busy day in real estate and so much going on. The year is almost 2/3 of the way over and we are quickly approaching the year 2020. So, September 11th is a day of remembering. It was also a challenging day in Sacramento real estate .There were escrows closing and new listings to work on. The day quickly came to a close. There is always more to do each new day. read more

Should Buyers Inspect Septic Tanks?

Should Buyers Inspect Septic Tanks?

Should buyers inspect septic tanks? When making a home purchase, many rural areas do not have public sewer service. In these cases, a septic tank is used, and it is buried under the ground usually down a foot or two. These tanks are recommended to be pumped out 3-5 years, depending on with whom you speak. The more people, the more flushes, the more laundry, the more showers. If you start having a back up, call your septic service quick.

During a buyer’s inspection period, buyers are afforded an opportunity to inspect the septic system. There are many types of systems such as an engineered dosing systems, and most often in Sacramento County you will see leech lines running from the septic. read more

Auburn Rural Real Estate and Mexican Longhorn

auburn real estate

Mixing Auburn rural real estate and Mexican longhorn was quite an experience yesterday. I went to visit my son, J.T., after working in the area. He said, why don’t you come over to see my cows at the 100 acres I lease? Sure, I said, thinking: nice photo opportunity. Little did I know, we would be having an adventure.

He loaded up his 4-wheel drive vehicle in the back his horse trailer and off we went. Upon arrival he said, why are my cows looking at me from the neighbor’s property? Yes, the cows had escaped. So, JT, his girlfriend, Leslie, and myself were off chasing cows. I was later given gate duty. read more

Dealing with Seller’s Remorse

Dealing with Seller's Remorse

Dealing with seller’s remorse is an interesing piece written by Elizabeth for another publication. It is true that seller’s remorse happens and they cancel listings. Without motivation a seller may put a toe in the water but will not dive in. Enjoy…

— JaCi Wallace

Real estate agents are used to working with buyers who sometimes freak out when they realize they have actually purchased a home. Sure, looking at homes, writing offers, negotiating, it’s all fun and games until the time comes when a seller says, “Heck, I’ll take your offer.” That’s when the panic sets in — which, by the way, is a normal reaction for a buyer. read more

Computers And Cats In Sacramento

Computers and Cats in Sacramento

Computer and cats in Sacramento is a fun blog to write about. As I was starting to write, my cat, Kits, jumped up onto my computer tower. It is positioned right behind the monitor. He looked over the top and was playing hide and seek. This photo is worth a 1000 words. The good news, I’m not going to write 1000 words, lol.

The joys of working from home are the cats keep me smiling. Kits is a purebred male Ragdoll cat. I own his mother and father, so I have had him since the day he was born. The cats often come and sit right in front of monitor, I call it the command center. read more
