Maybe it's because I don't live in Elk Grove that I list and sell so many homes in that area? I don't know but I do know I'm a specialist there. Some people in the older parts of Elk Grove may express a regret that so many outsiders have taken up residence, but in 2006, Elk Grove was named the fastest growing city in the United States. I guess there is some resentment. It doesn't matter I have an Elk Grove office. It's not enough for some, I guess. It never ocurred to me that living in the same county could make a person an outsider without an Elk Grove address, but it I have now seen it happen. First time for everything, they say.  People have their own quirks and it does no good to discuss. Better just to respect their thoughts and move on. You can read more in my personal blog today ...

It is a sickness of sorts, no doubt it, this fixing up and selling homes bug. I had it for a while, and although you never really get cured or over it, it can settle itself down in time. Of course, selling homes for a living, I'm in the thick of it. It's hard for me not to point out to a seller that if she did XYZ, she could boost her bottom-line profit margin. Not every seller has additional funds available to pour into fixing up a home before putting it on the market. In this market, even awful looking homes will sell, but if you can do a few fixes here and there, it's generally better to do it. I look at spending money on things that will return more than 100%, otherwise, why do it? I don't know exactly how much the seller spent to fix up this house, but I imagine, just guessing, it ...
