August real estate sales in Sacramento have been brisk. We are looking forward to seeing the August numbers. It has been quite a month. There are some clients that have been amazing to work with and just a lot of fun. Sometimes we are talking to clients at midnight, yes whatever it takes is our motto. We provide service, plus.
Yesterday, our assistant Adina, was working in Oak Park assisting with facilitating an alarm install on our new listing. Our gardener has been there cleaning the exterior up. Luckily, Adina has a neighbor who is a welder. The welder went over and fixed the iron bars on the gates to slow the break-ins. The bars had been bent back creating a large enough space to squeeze through.
Since 2014, July 25 is the National Wine and Cheese Day Celebration! There are many places that take advantage of this holiday to provide opportunities for the public to taste and or purchase various varieties and pairings of wine and cheese. This morning, news stations were featuring different restaurants and clubs that are having such gatherings.
Many wine and/or cheese connoisseurs plan parties on this day, to invite friends into their homes to share their knowledge and to partake in some rare and tasty combinations. I have several such friends and clients that have invited me to celebrate the day; however, there is no rest for the market, and I had to decline. I love my friends and loyal clients who keep me in mind when having celebrations and I try as hard as possible to attend when I am able. Many of my clients have become dear friends over the years and I feel very blessed.
A rocking real estate race in Sacramento felt much like I was in the thoroughbred races at Cal Expo. When you have multiple appointments out in Sacramento real estate from 9 am – 7 pm, it keeps us running. There are also hundreds of emails to work on every day. The phone calls keep coming and we triage with top priorities. In between appointments when you have a few minutes while driving, we try to get a call or two completed. With our team of professional Realtors, we have resources to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
Wild Wednesday real estate. What a day, as it starts with an office meeting, team meetings, two new listings, rescuing a homeless kitten, negotiating repair requests. Then, communications on listings and escrows, over 200 emails, 35 texts and 15 phone conversations later, it was a crazy Wednesday real estate. This is not a tedious job, lol.
If you want to list or sell a property with Realtors who can ride out the busiest day and still find time to market your property, call Weintraub & Wallace Realtors, at 916-233-6759.
Should you offer Airbnb lodging? Homeowners across the country have begun offering Airbnb lodging to travelers. They’re bringing in a few extra dollars each week by renting out a guest house or even a room or two inside their homes. If you’ve considered getting a little help with monthly expenses by offering Airbnb accommodations, the first thing you should do is your homework.
Before offering Airbnb lodging, check the regulations: Check with the City or County to see if you’re going to be breaking any zoning regulations. Some Cities or Counties – and even some subdivisions – don’t allow rentals. Some don’t allow two unrelated parties to dwell on the same property.
