Here's a homebrew solution - GREAT in the pocket so you won't ever have to throw money away on those harsh drain cleaners and Ladies, we all know how harsh they are on our skin! The best part is you probably have all the necessary supply already in your home.  Take half a cup of baking soda and sprinkle down your clogged drain....                                                                             Add a half a cup of white vinegar and cover with a plate or          lid for about five minutes...             Now , pour five cups of boiling water down the drain...Voila!Your drain is clear and working again!Tip courtesy of your Realtor, Tina Farinas

 I SAY NOT!Can't believe that the Placer County Strawberry Festival is OVER!While on vacation there was an article in the Sacramento Bee that the Strawberry Festival ends after 17 year run.i am sick! Who do I complain to? Was there vote? Do folks not like strawberries, anymore?According to the article, rising costs and declining attendance has ended Roseville's Strawberry Festival.Back in 2005 there were over 65,000 to 70,000 visitors that attended the festival and do to rain the last two years in April when the festival occurs, the attendance dropped to about 20,000. Since this event takes place using volunteers in  order to raise money for non-profit organizations, the powers that be were finding escalating costs in running the festival with little or no money for the non-profits.Orig...

This morning I was rudely rousted from bed by a huge winter storm hitting the Sacramento area.  The winds are so fierce that we have already lost two trees in our yards.  I can see this is a day to stay inside and hope the wind settles down a bit.  The fun part of my morning was to see so many nice comments on my new active rain blog.  Wow, that is really cool to be welcomed by such nice people.  All too often the comments on my main blog, "Keep it Real in Sacramento" are from, shall we say, not so nice people.  It surprises me that there are individuals out there who use the internet to express their negativity and do it so aggressively.  The warm welcome here makes up for much of that.  Thank you all for the nice comments.

Well, it is a new year and time for some new activities.  I have maintained a blog, "Keep it Real in Sacramento" on my http://www.jalone.com/ website for several years.  It has been fun writing about the real estate industry, the local market in Sacramento and a host of other topics that interest me or cross my path.  I have even been know to rant and provide a restraint review or two.  I have watched Active Rain for sometime and have been impressed with the growth and community of members so I thought I give it a spin too.My business has been growing for the past several years and I concentrate on developing long term relationships with my clients.  Most of my marketing dollars are spent on my son's elementary school community and some Internet advertising.  I would say the source of m...

Home Stagings Tips Getting your home ready to sell? This can be a huge job, but once you identify the areas of concern, this task can be manageable if done in small steps. It has been announced by NAR that "property inventories are at an all time high". Gone are the days of multiple offers and putting up a sign and waiting for the market to catch up with your price ...now buyers have tons of choices and sellers are looking for only the most qualified agent to list their house. Today, competition is fierce and sellers must be prepared to present their home in the best possible light. Most successful real estate agents all agree that... Staged Homes Do Sell Faster! Today's average sellers are not equipped to stage a home without professional assistance. Most homeowners personalize their h...

My Passion for Horse Rescue I was in a terrible accident and sustained serious injuries.  I had 7 operations and was on crutches for over two years.  I had one very special friend during that time, a Dutch Warm blooded mare.  She was well over 17 hands tall and full of energy and ability.  She was also complicated, moody and naughty.  I was never bored and usually frustrated with her behavior.  She was also the best jumper I ever had and would either win a class or get excused from the arena for being a brat!    During this time I took the left stirrup off my saddle and just rode in the hills with my cast.  My complicated, moody, naughty horse turned into an angel and treated me like a china cup!  She understood that I was injured and just took care of me.  This literally saved my life...

The numbers are in for Roseville for November, 2007. The average home sold in Roseville this November for $383,605, down 17.3% from last year's average of $463,647. However, at least some this drop was due to this year's average home being 1976 square feet versus 2051 square feet last year. As a result, the average sold price per square foot dropped less dramatically (well, a little less dramatically, anyway, but we'll take what we can get). Sold price per square foot for Roseville homes in November averaged $194.13, a 14.1% decline from last November's average of $226.06. The number of foreclosures in Roseville -- and in Placer County as a whole -- is midway between the Sacramento County numbers, which are quite high, and the low numbers in El Dorado County. In active inventory, 15.2% ...

Like most areas in greater Sacramento, Roseville’s real estate market in was slow this October.  Part of this is seasonal, but still unit volume has been down in September and October in general However, by compared to other markets, Roseville is holding its own fairly well.  In this report, we'll be dealing with all three Roseville areas, with  95678, 95661, and 95747. Roseville's average home price in October was $419,296, a decline of 9.7 % from last year’s average of $464,497.  The actual decline turns out to be more dramatic than that, however.  This year’s average home was some 7.2% larger than last years, so the drop in sold price per square works out to be 15.8%.  The average home sold for $241.53 per square foot in Roseville last October.  This October the average Roseville hom...

Connect Realty is in a pre-launch stage with the public launch scheduled for January 5th, 2008.

The differentiating and exciting thing about this real estate company is that it is launching a global restructuring of the real estate industry and is spearheaded by some of the world's most influential people. These are just a few: Jim and Rod Canion, part of the co-founding team that started Compaq Computers, they have successfully taken 17 companies public. Ken Carlton, 40% owner of Jet Blue, took Continental and American Airlines public, and has invested $80 million in Biz Jet, his wife is the heiress to Southwest Airlines.

For some time now I've been publishing some Roseville real estate market statistics on my Roseville Real Estate site, but today I bit the bullet and decided it was time to burden the blogosphere with yet another real estate blog.This month's market update shows that Roseville is continuing to do fairly well compared to other local areas. Sacramento County, for example, has over eleven months of inventory, while Roseville is in down to "only" 8.21 months.  Of course, that's still pretty much in the "buyer's market" category.Our other subjects will include nearby Placer County areas such as Granite Bay, Rocklin, Auburn, Loomis, and the rest of Placer County -- especially Southwestern Placer County.

 When should you stage a home? No home is exempt. This 1920's home has the feel and charm of yesterday but still has the appeal for new home buyers. Staging is an art, let the professional use thier talents to create the right stuff to sell your home fast!  Staging is a small investment to get your home sold faster.  This home was staged using the client's own furniture. We did a comprehensive report and came back to the home to make final adjustments. Look at the result!   Staging the front of the home is critical. Can you imagine sipping iced tea on a summer afternoon? We staged this guest bedroom as a bed and bath effect. This went over big with buyers.

I recently did a Home Staging Report for a home owner that wanted some ideas to make her home stand out  when she was ready to list her home 3 months later.  It took me 2 hours to list off all the marketability points she needed to accomplish before her home was to be listed on the MLS.  The list included painting her home, which she did herself, planting flowers in her yard, mulching, rearranging her furniture, and buying some accent pieces to brighten up her home. We used all of her furnishings and even weeded some out in order to make the rooms look larger. I sent her some links to Target for some ideas on wall decor, so she knew the kind of look I wanted her home to have.  She was willing to buy accents and pillows that she would eventually take to her new home.  She duplicated thos...

We have our latest numbers out for the Roseville real estate market, with yet another collectible John Lockwood talking head video. If you prefer to read the text instead of watching the television version, you can check that out here. Yes, I know, there are more entertaining videos out there, perhaps some day I'll think of a more creative use for them. Meantime, just to show you I understand the goal, how about a dog on a skateboard?
