sacramento real estate
Real estate contracts using digital signatures like DocuSign can be an excellent tool, or it can be a real pain. Yesterday was a prime example. We received a purchase contract on one of our listings in the morning. We sent it out for digital signatures. Our seller had signed it but evidently didn’t click on the finish button. This stalled the entire process. I contacted our seller, but he said he had completed the process and could not finish it. I logged on to DocuSign, and it was not complete. What to do?
Selling real estate and law school has come up in my life on a few occasions. While managing the Sacramento and Placer county regions for a previous real estate company, I almost applied to Lincoln Law School. Our risk management attorney, Eric Larsen, rest his soul, had encouraged me to apply. He wrote a letter of recommendation giving me a five-star review to suggest I be grandfathered into the program. Eric was my mentor. He taught me everything I know about real estate law, disclosure, due process and lawsuits, etc. I was so fortunate to work alongside him for almost 10 years.
Being a Sacramento Realtor multi-tasking at extreme levels is the typical environment for a successful real estate career. Yesterday, I was made aware that this skill set is something you either possess or you don’t. Realtors are often on the phone, (I have two phones) texting, emailing and putting the phone on mute, while answering questions from an assistant. We are also checking email and voice mail while organizing. I have a 40-inch monitor screen, so I have multiple windows open at the same time on my computer.
How do Realtors educate buyers to write winning offers? They tell them everything about the process. Talking about how to prepare a potentially perfect offer to conform to the market is critical. We are navigating through a seller’s market in Sacramento Real Estate, right now. Inventory is at all time low.
Buyers are making offers above list price even to be considered to compete, and they face stiff competition and multiple offers. Put on your armor and make your highest and best offer as you may not have another opportunity. All sellers do not send out multiple counters; they can decide to choose the best offer and game over.
A multiple offer recipe for a new listing is much like following along in a cookbook. You need a few ingredients or the recipe will turn out half-baked. Plan out your new recipe thoughtfully and with intention.
First, you need a desirable location. Second, the property has to have key features such as a spectacular lot. Add onto that, 4 bedrooms and a single story. How about throw in a brand new high-end kitchen? New Plush Carpet, upgraded pad, and wood floors are just the cherries on top. How about a culdesac? Cool off in your own Tahoe blue, built-in pool. So the above are all the features on my new Sacramento real estate listing located at 9901 Silverod Place, Sacramento, Ca. 95829.
