We are deeply saddened to share the news that our Dear Friend and Colleague, Terri Moule has suddenly passed away.    Terri was a pillar in our Elk Grove community and always the first person to step up when someone was in need.   Her kind heart and beautiful smile was deeply felt by all who knew her.  She was an active member of our Keller Williams  ALC, President of her Rotary, and she never hesitated to help those around her.  She will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.   I hope she’s looking down and realizing how powerful she really was. She has left a legacy of giving. She changed our market center, she changed our community, she changed her family, and I promise you she changed my life for the better. I love her.To  honor Terri Moule and her legacy, go ...

Although there are only 11 residential lots / land for sale in Elk Grove at the moment, the days on market are much longer than those for single-family homes. 205 days over the past 6 months, and only 10 sales. But that did not discourage me from listing this lot in Elk Grove.Even though I had to send my photographer back to reshoot his pictures. This has happened to me only once in the past 15 years, and it happened to be this listing. I was just not happy with his photographs, and I'm always over-the-top thrilled. Seriously, though, it is pretty difficult to pull marvelous photos of flat land and dirt. But I managed to do it.You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Lot for sale in Elk Grove at 9368 Kaanapali Closed Escrow.

My initial thought when I listed this home in Elk Grove was it would be hard to sell. That's because I had sold the home on the corner in the spring, way before construction started. In fact, the Caterpillars were digging in that phase. I noted on my Agent Visual Inspection that there was new construction happening behind the homes. Turns out they were putting up apartments within a foot or so from the setback. This meant there could be tenants staring into your living room. The buildings also cast shadows on the homes.By fall, those structures were in the face of homeowners on this street. But little did I know all of the other underlying issues in this transaction. A seller who did not want to sell at list price. The square footage was wrong in the public records. And I haven't even t...

REALITY REAL ESTATE WITH LORI MODE A very typical real estate transaction... Today we closed what I would call a very typical real estate transaction.  I’m going to take you through some of the steps, so you can see what a rather easy real estate sale looks like.   In October, I was contacted by a past client of mine to help him and his mother sell their uncle’s home. The uncle had recently passed away and they inherited the house.  The home was located near the American River Parkway on Mira Del Rio Drive.  The home was built in 1976 and was basically original.  It had been maintained but had never been updated.  The family wanted to know if they should update it or sell it “as is”.  Which would yield them the most money?  I did an analysis of the property and the comparable sales, and...

It can be scary when you buy your first investment property. You have tenants you are responsible for and another home to maintain.  Real estate investing is a team sport and should be treated as a business. Make sure your current team of advisors, including but not limited to, property manager, mortgage provider, CPA, attorney, and Realtor who are real estate investment savvy. I can point you in a direction, if you are in need of real estate resource.  Search for Elk Grove Investment Properties for sale >> If you are planning to purchase your first investment property in Elk Grove or are looking to add to your portfolio, there are some things to think about before you buy: How much will you put down?
