How the Request for Notice of Default Lost a West Sacramento Seller Her Home

request for notice of default

Filing a Request for Notice of Default is common practice for second lenders.

That Request for Notice of Default came in handy. A lawyer from Beverly Hills called yesterday to try to figure out how to save her home in West Sacramento from a trustee’s sale. I am certainly empathetic to those in this situation, but why do people call real estate brokers on the date of an auction? I can actually help if they were to call me a month or so before the sale date, but on the date of the sale, there isn’t much that can be done. For starters, I don’t give legal advice but I do have a lot of knowledge about foreclosure proceedings, primarily from my early days in the 1970s working first as a title searcher and later as an escrow officer. Many laws today are still similar. read more

Short Sale Buyers Closed on Antelope Home With Free Equity

short sale buyers

Happy short sale buyers are even happier after closing on a home in Antelope.

The short sale buyers who purchased my seller’s home in Antelope really lucked out on a terrific deal in several ways. As the top Sacramento short sale agent, of course I represented the sellers. The buyers were represented by someone else. We went on the market at the end of March, yet it took us 3 weeks to get an offer for this short sale. Even in a limited inventory market, there were still other homes in Antelope to buy that could close right away, so many buyers passed by this gem. Few want to look at short sales when there is an abundance of regular homes for sale. read more

Working With the Best Sacramento Realtors Means Recognizing the Worst

the best sacramento realtorYou’ve got your good buyer’s agents in Sacramento, and you’ve got your lousy ones, and sometimes it’s hard to tell which is which from the inception. If you believe who the buyer’s agent is doesn’t make a difference in a real estate transaction, then you’re most likely not a top-producer listing agent in Sacramento. Because we see it all.

The first sign I’m working with a screwball is when I receive an offer from out-of-the-blue with no preceding phone call, no email, no text message, no voicemail, no prior notification whatsoever about the offer nor the buyer. To add insult to injury, these often are sent directly from a digital online signing service, without a single one-line sentence from the buyer’s agent to explain its existence. read more

How to Close $2 Million in Sales in Sacramento in One Day

$2 million in sales

Closing $2 million in sales in one day in Sacramento is remarkable

A milestone day happened yesterday that is very rare in my end of the Sacramento real estate market and, in fact, I wouldn’t have even known that it happened if escrow had not pointed it out to me. Most of the listings that I take and sell, for example, fall within a wide range of price points, but I’m betting the mid-range of prices for homes in Sacramento is around $300K to $500K. Not only was it a surprise, but it was an odd feeling when escrow mentioned I was about to close $2 million in sales in one day. What? $2 million in sales for Sacramento home sales in one day? read more
