Heather's Home Life

Feeling Lucky? How about hungry? Keep reading for your chance to win a meal on me!

As COVID persists and life as we knew it remains elusive, one thing Mike and I have come to enjoy is eating from local restaurants as much as our budget allows.

Without question, the COVID TAKE-OUT CHAMPION in our house is Snug, Jr. From the people who bring you deVere's Irish Pub and freshly-launched Ro Sham Beaux, Snug Jr. is the deVere White family's answer to fast food. I'm fully invested in my love affair with this menu. I'm smitten.

Next time you're hankering for a burger and need to scratch that eat-local itch, this is the spot.

IN FACT: treat yourself to Snug Jr. in the next few weeks, take a pic, and tag me (@heatherdowneyhomes) on Instagram! I'll announce my winner in March's newsletter and to the winner goes the spoils - a Snug Jr. gift card!

Market Update

There's no way around it - this might be the most competitive market the Sacramento region has ever seen.

January prices were up around 15% from a year ago, and inventory is more than 50% down.

What does this mean? Well...

If you're considering selling a property, you have options.

If you're considering buying property, you also have options.

I don't think it's helpful to sit still out of fear or uncertainty, no matter what side of a potential transaction you could occupy. Instead, take ownership of your power and let's talk about how I'm getting clients into contract to purchase homes, and how I'm listening to sellers to help them plot a course to make the most money from their home and find their way to the next one.

Welcome Home, Sheng & Jessica

Everyone, may I introduce you to the nicest folks in the world? Sheng & Jessica are UC Davis Pharmacists and returning clients. I helped Sheng purchase his first Oak Park property a couple years ago, and it was a thrill to assist them again in early 2021.

I feel genuine gratitude when people invite me into their real estate adventures. To be invited back by past clients is an unmatched honor.

I hope for nothing but the best as this couple continues to serve patients during the pandemic, and nurture their own dreams.
