Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


Home Buyers Are Not Delivered by the Stork

Trying to combat some of the misinformation in the real estate industry is like trying to explain how a leader of the free world can make up stuff when so few seem to care. It's like if one repeats a lie often enough it starts to sound like the truth. Which is why it's very annoying when a seller insists that a listing agent has bunch of buyers to work with, when they don't.

It's a little bit like living in Opposite Land.

One of the goals of a real estate agent is to put a buyer into escrow. If an agent cannot perform that function, that's not saying much about the agent, now is it? You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Sacramento Sellers Ask: Where Do Buyers Come From?

Why Sacramento Home Buyers Won't Buy Average Homes
The olden days of selling short sales can change an agent. Why, I know some agents who would not step foot into a short sale property, especially if it wasn't maintained. They did not want to climb over piles of toys, clothes, papers strewn all… more
How Much Are Seller's Closing Costs in Sacramento?
You hear more talk about buyer's closing costs and not seller's closing costs in Sacramento. Most likely because the difference between the two is pretty basic. The buyer generally takes money out of her savings account to close escrow. She needs… more
