Are We in a Real Estate Bubble…?

Update on the 10 Hotest Real Estate Markets – Analyzed Here.

I have had more than one person ask me if we were in another Real Estate Bubble.   I know that anechdotally, prices here in the Sacramento/Folsom area where I practice real estate and property management, have gone up.

We see it all the time in higher re-sale prices and big time increases in what you can charge for rents in just about every category, from apartments, duplexes and single family homes.

In my opinion this is going to be the trend for a while here in this area,  because builders have not kept up with demand and are only now starting to ramp up with some new construction.

So…. I got this article that I thought I would share with you from

Is there a housing bubble brewing on the West Coast?

Rising Rents in Sacramento Region A Follow Up to an Earlier Post

Surprise….It’s all about supply and demand…!

I’ve told investors for the last several years that the big reason rents and ultimately home values would go up here was because they pretty much stopped building just about anything new since late 2007.   Sacramento Residential Property Investors that have picked up Duplexes, Four-plexes, Apartment complexes and even Single Family homes now often get Multiple Renter Applications when a unit comes up vacant.

Oh sure there were a few new projects constructed around the area but no where near the amount needed to maintain an adequate supply of homes and apartments especially the smaller types of investment properties such as Duplexes or Four-Plexes.

When you have a slightly improving economy, this is primarily the main reason we’ve seen some steep rises in rents throughout the area.

So… today I get this article from the Sacramento Business Journal and thought I’d share it with you.  I think it’s an interesting read.    CLICK HERE FOR THE ARTICLE.

Twin Pines Apartments – Rancho Cordova – Twelve Units – A Sleeper Investment

Across the street from the new Folsom Lake College Extension.

If you have been looking for a small apartment complex with “upside” I think you might have found it here.

This one has a mix of (8) 2 bedroom 1 bath & (4) 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment units.   All have dishwashers, gas stoves, patios/decks, central heat/air and lots of off street parking.   I do have an estimate for “covered parking” to be installed, which I think would be a big improvement and allow for an increase in rental rates.

The Owners have recently painted the exterior, made el caprice #1updates to the roof, replaced the site’s water heater and completed a lot of dry rot and satisfied all of the City of Rancho Cordova code enforcement issues.

The tenant profile has been upgraded as well.


You can also get a copy of the Cash Flow Figures here.

If you take a drive to see this you’ll see that the college is almost done.   They are putting in the landscaping and the parking lot across the street is just about completed as well.

You’ll also notice a pretty good sized open area that has some additional potential and is part of the “Mather Mills Opporunity Site”.  The Twin Pines Apartments are across the street as you can see in the aerial shot that is bounded by yellow.    Click on the link below to get more information.
