Sac Seller Says No Sale to Buyer With Relative as Agent

One of the things that I find completely endearing about selling Sacramento real estate is I can still be astonished, even given the obscene number of homes I've sold over my lifetime. You never hear it all. There is always some new twist or complication or challenge.

Today's challenge is how to handle it when the seller says he will not sell to a buyer who is represented by a relative. Not even on Thanksgiving will he loosen up. He is adament. And DNA agents are not protected classes in real estate.

On another note, I have a wire for our internet services sagging in the yard. The last time that happened, I called Consolidated and it took them 7 days to get out to repair it. 7 days of pure hell. No television, no internet. I can get by without TV, but not without internet. Hotspots are a PITA. I asked the service rep if they had any technicians who would moonlight for a turkey leg. When she finished laughing, she said nope, 7 days out. Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Never Just Another Home Closing in Foothill Farms

Just SOLD 5861 Brandon Way Sacramento Tallac Village

How Many Different Types of Realtors are in Sacramento?

The Myth of All Cash Offers in Sacramento
For my clients, I always try to go that extra mile. I investigate what I can through the public records and MLS, and deliver that information to my clients. That's because I want them to and they deserve to make an informed decision. They get… more
An Afternoon in the Life of Selling Homes in Elk Grove
It always astonishes me when I answer my phone and on the other end is a snarly real estate agent yelling about something. We don't all come from the same cut of cloth. Some people are just loose cannons and operate that way without regard. I don't… more
Sacramento Insider Tips for Buying a Home Prior to Selling
There are many agents in Sacramento who will refuse to show homes to buyers who have a home to sell and have not yet sold it. I can see why they might not want to do it, but on the other hand, that kind of attitude will not strengthen a… more
