If it's a Sunday in Sacramento and not a holiday, you can bet we are doing open houses -- this week in 95818. We are always hosting an open house pretty much. If a holiday interferes, sometimes a Saturday open house is substituted instead. But we give all of our listings maximum exposure. Which means any buyer who is looking for a home is likely to spot what we have for sale.Because you never know where your buyer may originate from.

What a beautiful Grand Colonial in Curtis Park, Sacramento. Finding homes with spacious square footage in Curtis Park is not an easy task, but this is such a home. It boasts more than 2,800 square feet, according to the Sacramento County Assessor. Yes, before you ask, there is a first-floor bedroom and full bath. More like two master suites. Although the main floor master is a bit smaller than the second-floor master.The second floor master suite is enormous and overlooks the pool, spa and deck at the back of the home. Plenty of walk-in closets throughout the house as well. A nice amenity is the marvelous sauna in the front bedroom upstairs. You don't expect it. You open the door and gasp. What a wonderful sauna! Beautiful wood benches. Hot rocks. When you finish, why not cool off by re...

Little is more irritating than a low appraisal, except for maybe a low appraisal for an FHA buyer. Because an appraisal like that will prevent another FHA buyer from purchasing that home. So it's not like it's easy for the seller to put the home back on the market if it primarily appeals to FHA buyers.Conventional appraisals are a different story; although I have heard rumors they are headed the way as FHA, and they will eventually also receive case numbers. Sometimes I long for the good old days, you know, when you take a driver's exam, fail miserably, and just go to some other DMV the next day and take it again without a waiting period because there were no computers. But I digress. Today we have appraisers telling us what market value is. They follow a system, with rules. When there ...

 The best way to buy a home when you're also selling a home in Sacramento is to own two homes at the same time for a while. This way, you are not trying to buy with a contingency to sell, which is fairly difficult in our multiple-offer situations. Generally the offer without a contingency to sell will win, regardless of price, which is why this home in Curtis Park is now for sale. The sellers invested time removing the carpeting from two bedrooms and the hall on the first floor to install and match the hardwood in the rest of the home. You absolutely cannot tell the difference between the new hardwood and the existing hardwood, those installers did such a fabulous job.

True fact, I almost moved to Curtis Park when I relocated to Sacramento in 2002. My husband and I looked at a ton of homes in East Sacramento, made offers on several and lost, a bunch in Land Park and Midtown, but it was Curtis Park that captures the heart. Even though it is right next to Land Park, the homes are different and character of this neighborhood is unique. The home I fell in love with was on Marshall Way. Sometimes I see it come up for sale off and on and my heart pings. The problem was the back yard, too small and the house faced south, so the back yard was too shady for gardening. Plus, it was a two-story and we prefer single. So, maybe it wasn't so perfect after all. You can read more in my personal blog today, find out more about the team's Curtis Park specialist, and en...

The only thing better than taking a new listing in Sacramento during my Hawaii wor-cation is closing a listing in Sacramento during my wor-cation. It's even more pleasurable when it's a listing I thought I had lost that found its way home. Not without making a side journey, though, into some other agent's inventory of listings. Oops, wrong way, detour, desvío. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Another Curtis Park Home Closes Despite Initial Seller Mistake.

There are days I feel like reciting a soliloquy from the opening scene of Hamlet, asking whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles. To be or not to hold an open house. Especially in Curtis Park. When the agent is asking if he can cancel the open house and the seller is, well, let's say not overly enthusiastic over the proposal.You can read more and see all of the photographs, including the tiny fish at a Korean BBQ joint, in my personal blog today at this link: Results Stunned Opposition to Curtis Park Open House.
