Hot, Hot, Hot! 107 Degrees in Lincoln today.

Wow, it’s only 10:00 am and my office thermostat is already reading 84 degrees. I usually don’t have to turn the air on until at least 11:00, but I’m starting to heat up! I really like the heat, maybe it’s because I had to shovel so many sidewalks and deal with frozen ears and toes so much growing up. Isn’t is funny taking about the weather? It seems like some people are never satisfied. Either it’s too hot, too cold, too much rain, not enough rain…blah, blah, blah. Maybe it’s just for converstation or something but I think it might be about attitude as well. Now, I can understand if you are having to move today, I do feel for my clients moving to Davis. I hope the day goes well. I also understand the farmers and other businesses that depend on the weather for work or to be able to do work, but I am talking about the everyday American that goes to an office or school that is air-conditioned and the hardest part of the day is getting into a hot car and sweating for a minute while it cools down.

Sorry if I come off harsh, it might just be a bit of an attitude after talking to some banks on short sales, but I’m also counting my blessings and trying to reflect on how lucky we are to live in this country. I’m going to try to have a more positive outlook and encourage others to do the same!

On the real estate front, rates are still extremely low and if you have good credit and a little money, it’s a great time to buy. Some of the bank-owned and traditional sales are starting to sit on the market a little longer and I feel that prices in the larger homes are starting to drop again slightly (they did go up in Placer County for a few months).  Congratulations on closing to my two clients moving out of the area.
