New Foreclosure listing in Winters, CA

201 Almeria is a nice, new, bank owned,  listing ready for viewing.  It is very neat and clean and ready for move in.  The home has newer carpet, paint, blinds, kitchen cabinets an droof.  It has a really nice, large backyard and is located close to many of the schools in town.  This is priced at $184,900. so won’t last long and will probably sell for more that  the list price.

Winters FFA sweeps at Yolo County Fair

It was an exciting time in the auction arena yesterday at the Yolo County Fair.  The Winters FFA was well represented.  Many of the Grand Champion or Reserve Champion animals belonged to Winters FFA members and of course, my nephew, Tyler was there with his Grand Champion turkey.  Prices were sure down this year, I think the Grand Champion steer only got $2.75 a pound.   Too bad for the kids who put so much time and effort into their projects but a really lesson that there is no guarantee of any profit when it comes to making a living in agriculture, or any small business for that matter.  Kudos to all the kids and their families for being there and supporting them.   There is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this a successful event.

I'm a Video Star!

Can you believe it?  Neither can I.  However, I had a videographer come to Winters last week and we made a video of my new listing at 106 Russell Street.  I think it might be rather boring but it is a really cute house and it was a fun experience.  Mike, the man with the camera fell in love with Winters.  Think he will do a nice job for me considering what he had to work with.  When I get it, which should be soon, I will post it here.  Think I should take some acting lessons.   Anyway, the point is to get the house sold and we are working on that.

The Lion Roars Tonight!

Taking the whole family, yes, all five of us to see The Lion King in Sacramento.  I have seen it once and had to make sure everyone saw it.  What a nice way to celebrate Father’s Day.  I know even the “old man”  will enjoy it.  If you have never had a chance try and find it palying somewhere never you.  It is very magical and loved how creative all the costumes and props are.  It is truly an amazing experience.  Hope you all enjoy tomorrow.

Another Busy Weekend!

Well, I spent all of last weekend showing property and it looks like most of this weekend will be spent the same way.  However, I did get to go to a fun wedding shower for Erin Autry.  It was a “stock the bar” party.  Lots of good things to drink and glasses to drink them in.   We even got a mini martini shaker as a party favor. 

Afterwards, I met one of my clients and showed them some houses.  Think we may have found them something.    Tomorrow I have 3 appointments with clients.  There some good buys out there but they are going fast.  Call me if you need some help, I don’t have much time to be ont he computer during business hours.

On a Clear Day you can see Forever!

This morning I was driving to Woodland and I could see teh  Suter Buttes, the snow packed Sierra Nevada mounains and the Vaca Mountains.  Even though the crazy winds that were predicted, never materialized it was a beautiful dasy.  It is Spring and people are looking for new homes and rentals.    Life is good so enjoy it.

My daughter, Devon, called today and her school is planning camping trip this weekend to Monterey.  It is not mandatory but she is interested ingoing so I am scrambling around finding all the camping gear in a hurry.  Never mind that she was here for a good part of last week on Spring Break and she could have done it herself.   What are parents/family for?! 

Son, Jack is in Minneapolis for training with CH Robinson at their national headquarters.  He is having a great time meeting people he has been doing business with but has never met.  He loves Minneapolis, much to his surprise, a city he has never been to before.

Key West Beach

Just returned from spending an afternoon at the beach in Key West.  Someone has a beach concession renting beach chairs and lounges and umbrellas.  Perfect for us as we had none of that with us.  So, I have now been in the Atlantic Ocean.  Delightful to just sit and relax and read and smell the salt air.  Recommend it for everyone.

Hot New Listing in Winters, CA

I just listed 1030 Roosevelt Ave, Winters, CA.  This is really a good buy.  My owner is an investor and is very motivated to sell this property.  The home needs some TLC like new carpets, lino, paint and propabaly a new roof.  But, this is a nice home and I have seen it all fixed up and it is very cute.  If you are looking for a good starter home or an investment then call me to take a look.
