Let’s jump right in. In Sacramento County, we have only 1.6 months of inventory as of February, and the average days on market is only 37 days. In Placer County, we have 2.5 months of inventory and the average days on market is only 49 days. The question is, what do these numbers mean for you? Any amount of inventory under three months is a hot seller’s market. In this kind of market, there are many more buyers than there are homes for them to buy, which is a great advantage for sellers. We’re just now entering the spring market, and things are about to really heat up. Now is the time everyone is out there buying, so it’s a perfect time to list your home for a higher price and reap the rewards of great market conditions. If you’re thinking about selling and would like help taking advantage of this fantastic market, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to help you accomplish all your real estate goals!

It's been a great year for our real estate team, and we never could have had such a successful year without all of your help. Thank you for all of your business and referrals! I also have a tip for you today. You know how hard it is to take Christmas pictures, right? Everyone is busy and on a different schedule, and it's hard to get people in the same place at the same time. Going to the mall and taking a photo isn't very fun and it's expensive, too. Here's your solution: Bass Pro Shops! They offer free photos with Santa! I went to the location in Rockland and it's open until 10pm. They're going to be doing this until the 24th, so hurry on down there! Happy Holidays!

Get a free home value report Buying a Northern California or Sacramento Area Home? Search all homes for sale "List and sell your home during the holidays? What are you, crazy?" That's the reaction you'll get from most people when you suggest selling during the holidays. However, the holidays are a great time to sell. With the right strategy, selling during the holidays gives you a competitive advantage. Here's why.There are serious buyers out there. You don't get many buyers who are "just looking" this time of year. If someone is out looking for a home during the holidays, they mean business. They're motivated. There are fewer homes on the market for buyers to browse. There are less listings available. That means less competition and more money for you. After the holidays, listings will substantially increase. More homes on the market means more competition and less demand for your home, which means less money for you. You can restrict your showings during the holidays. You can still celebrate the holidays with your family. Restricting showings will also increase demand, as buyers become more eager to see your home.   You can sell now for more money and buy in the spring. You don't have to move until January or February, after your taxes are done. Selling during the holidays gives you the unique opportunity to sell high and buy low. You will have more flexibility later if you sell sooner.  As you can see, the holidays are a great time to sell. If you have any questions, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

The one thing that no one talks about, though, is how tough moving can be on your entire family. Today, I've got 6 tips for you on how to bring finality and closure to your home so you can enjoy the fresh start. 1. Drive through the neighborhood before you go. Take a video of some of the local places and landmarks that you enjoy so that you have those memories preserved. 2. Throw your own going away party. Invite all of your friends and family, even set up a photo or video booth. This is the last time you might be able to get all those people together in one place. 3. Take one last walk-through of the home with all of the family. Take a look at and be aware of all the special memories you have in that home, and reminisce about them. 4. Take a picture of your entire family in front of your old home. 5. Take a picture of your entire family in front of your new home. Then take both of these pictures, frame them, and hang them up in your new home. 6. Make plans to come back and visit the neighborhood within a year. If you do that, there is a piece of you that can hold on to the feeling that you will be coming back soon. This will help bring closure and finality to your whole family.If you have any questions for us, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

    The Top Three Pumpkin Patches in Sacramento

With this being said, I'd like to tell you a little bit about my three favorite places to take my family during this spooky time of year.Goblin Gardens  is a great one to start out at, but something that makes them special is that they have authentic covered wagons. It'll make you feel like you're out in the old west.Bishop's Pumpkin Farm  is another good choice, and this is a massive pumpkin patch. I've been there multiple times, and it's like the Disneyland of pumpkin patches.They have a zipline, and I actually never knew that it was there because the whole place is so massive! I've never done it but I've always wanted to. This one is located in Wheatland, but it's worth the trek!Dave's Pumpkin Patch is probably my favorite out of all three. It's in West Sacramento, and it's run by Vierra Farms. What really makes this place special is the 'Pumpkin Chunkin', a cannon that shoots pumpkins 500 yards! I know all you dads out there want to see that - I'm pushing really hard for my family to go there this year. If you're just looking for some pumpkins to decorate your home with, I'd suggest looking at Green Acres. They have a great selection and it's very inexpensive.As always, if you need any real estate assistance whatsoever, please don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you.
