In an industry with no regulations, no standardized accreditation system, and tons of “hobbyist professionals”, one gets what one pays for. The problem here is not if that inexperienced or bargain basement stager will do a good job, rather if they’ll actually stop your Elk Grove house from selling, dead in its tracks.  It’s true; good, thoughtful staging can most certainly help a house sell for more money and in less time. Bad staging can bring the selling momentum of a gre...

This particular neighborhood of Laguna West is one of my favorite communities in Elk Grove. It is situated around a lake, and some homes that are not shorefront have a view. Like this home in Laguna West. It is a block from the lake, and there is a lovely view from the master suite of the lake. It makes you feel like you're secluded out in the country and not actually living in a city.Not many people know or even recall but in 2006 Elk Grove was named by Time Magazine the "Fastest Growing City in the United States." Oh, how time flies when you're busy selling homes in Elk Grove. Hard to believe that was 11 years ago. You can read more about this new listing in my blog today and see all the photos, including the lake, at this link: Remodeled Lake View Home in Laguna West.

I thought I would mix up some of the blogs today about my new listings this month. It can be less interesting sometimes to read solely about square footage or numbers of bedrooms and baths, when there is also a good story behind-the-scenes that goes along with it. I know people like to read about what goes on in Sacramento real estate and how agents work. It's like getting a glimpse of an agent's day, the struggles, thoughts and workload we face day in and day out.It's also a bit complicated to protect privacy and not blab about things that have no place in print, while making the story inviting. But there was a part of this experience that made me laugh out loud, and I hope you'll enjoy it, too. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: How I Listed a Centex Home in Elk...

When Elk Grove home sellers get burned once, they are often very cautious before trusting other Elk Grove Realtors again. That's not to say their previous agent did anything horribly wrong because the thing about being an agent, we all learn soon enough in this business, is the agent is responsible for everything that happens, including inclement weather. It is all our fault. It is also all of our joy when things go right.That's just how sellers think. So when I enounter a seller who had a bad experience with some other agent and now doesn't know whom to trust, I often have to work overboard to gain that trust. These are the sellers who search out top agents because they want to narrow that window of possible non-satisfaction. Does that approach work? Be my guest. You can read more in m...

Yes, this Sacramento Realtor is still engaged in her wor-cation in Hawaii, as you can tell by the above photograph. Every day I get out of our vacation house and go somewhere fun. Yesterday, I stopped at a few furniture stores because sometime this year I will be furnishing the house after the sellers / tenants move.I could not peruse bedroom furniture because a woman from Elk Grove called in the midst of my hunt and I answered my phone from the second floor of Kohala Furniture. This is a seller whom I must have contacted many times as a referral maybe a year ago and she never responded until the moment suited. She expects to sell her home without the painting or recarpeting she says it needs, knock 2 percentage points off my commission, and sell at top of market; not to mention, she de...

The sellers contacted me a while back, upset with their existing agent for reasons I didn't fully catch, but the reasons do not matter because I'm not the sort of agent who upsets her clients. Whatever the reason as to why the seller wanted to cancel the listing with his existing agent is really none of my business. It makes no difference regarding how I will list and sell a home in Elk Grove. I have my own way of doing things.I saw the home was withdrawn from MLS a few days ago, so I called the seller. Looking out at the ocean from my lanai. Watching geckos scatter.At first, I sensed the seller was a little reluctant to list with me because he felt odd that I was on my wor-cation in Hawaii and he was in Elk Grove. But I quickly calmed those fears and assured him that I could put his ho...

There are days it looks like ads are taking over Google. You used to get solid results when performing a search, and now you are blasted with advertising. Do no evil does not apply to advertising. There are tons of companies trying to skim off Google searches and then sell those leads back to agents. Rightfully so, many real estate agents complain about this practice. While I don't mind a paying a portion of my commission for a referral here and there for business I otherwise might not obtain, my real estate business is not built on paying referral fees. I'd go broke trying to do that. We all would. There's not enough room in the budget to do that over and over. It's almost like the real searches now begin on page 2 of Google.

The thing about doing a little research when writing my blogs is I always learn something new. I prefer to fact-check statements I make for accuracy, because many people rely on information I provide. Just because I happened to be around and working in the real estate business when certain historical events happened, for example, doesn't always mean that my recollection is 100% on target as we all tend to put our own spin on things after a number of years has passed.Mello Roos in Sacramento and neighboring counties doesn't affect every home or every neighborhood. And homes built prior to 1982 do not generally have any Mello Roos associated with their property tax bills.

This seller in Elk Grove was referred to me by a happy Elk Grove client whom I helped buy and sell several homes. I love to receive referrals, especially when a satisfied client is singing my praises, and I don't have to do it myself. It's a bit uncomfortable having to constantly market yourself to strangers, telling them how great you are, but it's a consequence of being a successful Realtor. An Elk Grove Realtor is always marketing, even when she really doesn't want to. If you're a potential homebuyer looking for an affordable home in Elk Grove with a big yard, you're in luck. One of the rare halfplexes just came on the market. It's like a single-family home but the cost is much less.
