It's A Great Time To Buy A Rocklin Bank Owned Home   According to this chart of inventory of Rocklin's bank owned homes, there are more bank owned homes for sale today then there has been for the last year! Inventories are up 30.4% from June and 66.7% from a year ago. If you combine low house prices with low, low interest rates, it makes perfect sense to buy. I have helped several people get into a home for less than they were paying in rent.  They are actually making more money paying their mortgage than they were paying their rent with their tax advantages! You can search Rocklin Bank Owned Homes now! Hurry before they are gone!

Before I tell you about my new short sale listing in Rocklin -- which is an incredible home -- I've got to share a story about what happened yesterday when Myrl Jeffcoat and I went to Old Sacramento for lunch and Gold Rush Days. We seem to spend a great deal of time laughing when we are together, especially when we are finishing each other's sentences. Even though we had just spent two hours yakking, we were still engrossed in conversation when we returned to the parking garage. "Hey, Myrl," I say, pointing at a parking ticket machine, "Looks like we have to prepay our ticket." Myrl had left the parking ticket on her dash. So, we got into the elevator to go to the 4th floor. We press the button and keep talking. The doors open on the 2nd floor. Whoa, parking ticket machines were on the ...

e quarry that became a town:  Rocklin, CaliforniaFrom 1864 through 2005 the Rocklin California quarries extracted and crafted an estimated 2.4 million tons of granite.  This is the story of how that came to be.  Clearly many details had to be omitted, but I have tried to include the most important parts of the early Rocklin story.It all started with the Rocklin Pluton - granite formed as the molten lava of volcanic action pushed up and formed igneous rock.  Once it became solid through crystalization, it still lay underground.  As the Sierras were rising and forming a few million years ago, the slopes of the Rocklin area rose too, and then the soil covering the Rocklin Pluton eroded away and the granite became exposed.  The Rocklin Pluton stretches from Roseville to Newcastle and from F...

A month ago I wrote how excited I was to see the ten year note in the low 3.0% range. I am much more excited now that the 10 year note rate closed at 2.82% on August 6th. I am having trouble sleeping because it is very rare that the 10 year note rate ever goes below 3%. This is great news for homeowners and for people buying their first home because mortgage rates are at 40 year lows. A person wanting to buy a HOME ANYWHER FROM ROCKLIN CA TO SACRAMENTO CA can get a 30 year mortgage at 4.25% and a 15 year mortgage at 3.75%. Our grandparents were probably not even getting rates this low when they purchased there first homes. If a person buys a home very soon they probably would not want to refinance that loan during the life of that loan. That is very unusual considering the fact that so ...

When I first started selling real estate, everybody was doing the hustle. By that, I don't mean using aggressive, high-pressure selling tactics. I'm talking about the dance craze at the discos. The Bee Gees. Donna Summer. John Travolta. Some people, my husband included, love to thumb noses at spinning and glittery disco balls but let me tell you, as a person who lived through this era, it was fun. It was fun because it was different. To do the hustle, you had to actually touch another person when you danced and follow precise dance steps. You weren't twirling in circles by yourself with your eyes closed and waving silk scarves in the air, only to discover that when the music ended your dance partner had long ago wandered off to smoke a bong somewhere. You were actually dancing with some...

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words I also believe that you only have one chance to make a first impression.  So when it comes to putting your house up for sale make sure your pictures are worth a thousand good words! A picture in real estate may even be worth thousands of dollars! This brings me to one of the first tips I give my buyers, "Never rule in a house because it has good pictures and never rule out a house because it has bad ones." Some agents take really great photos and trick people into thinking the house looks great. And some agents couldn't take a good picture of the White House. Many times when I need a good laugh I go to the store and go to the card section and spend some time there laughing at some of them. Then other times I just go to my local MLS and look at some of...

This morning when reading cnn.com I noticed a headline article about Rocklin, CA voted as CNN's top 100 places to live.  Rocklin is a beautiful town, my office has been located here for the past couple years, so it was nice to see that article.  If you didn't see it and would like to see if your town made the top 100, you can see it here Rocklin which is located in Placer County, about a 25 minute drive north of Sacramento, boasts great Schools, Parks and is centrally located between South Lake Tahoe and San Fransisco, best of both worlds for snow activities and winter activities in the winter in Tahoe and great shopping and nightlife in San Fransicso.   Rocklin and nearby Attractions Blue Oaks Town Center is a prominent shopping location and includes entertainment and a variety of rest...

How does the consumer choose the realtor that they want to work with?  There are 285 REALTORS IN PLACER COUNTY listed in Activerain. Our office alone has 21 REALTORS IN ROCKLIN CA. All of these realtors feel pretty good about themselves, and they are all saying "I am great" "I am a area expert". If all the realtors are saying this how does the average consumer decide on who is the best or who knows the most? Do they flip a coin?  is it the first realtor who calls them back?  I would like to hear from an actual recent homebuyer to find out how they picked their realtor. There are 321 HOMES FOR SALE IN ROCKLIN AS of June 11th 2010. If the consumer is going through half of them, do they just choose the realtor by selecting the home first? I have been a REALTOR IN ROCKLIN CA for two years n...
