Sacramento & Rancho Cordova Duplex Investors – Heads Up…!

The Way You Manage Your Duplex Will Determine The Rent Return & Appreciation Down The Line

Over the years since I’ve been writing here,  I’ve discussed Investing in Sacramento Duplexes for sale.  Other areas with great potential are Citrus Heights, Carmichael and Rancho Cordova with a lot of neighborhoods of Duplexes that come up for sale from time to time.

While in many respects Duplexes have the same amenities as a Single Family home, they are for the most part properties occupied by “non-owners” called Tenants.

An Investment Property like a Duplex has to be managed correctly to get the most value out of your investment in the form of higher rents and of course at re-sale increased appreciation.

I’ve got a little slide show that I would like to share with you.   This is one of my pet peeves – the lack of proper management and allowing Tenants to do what they want with your Investment.

What is my pet peeve…?   Parked cars on the front yard grass.    See below.

 

What do you think…?

If you are thinking of buying a Duplex in the Sacramento Area, think about managing it as well.   Good management will make you money.     Check out our Property Management Company.

American Dream Home – Folsom, California

Interesting Graphic – 60% of Home Buyers Want a Newly Built Home

I thought I’d forward this graphic from the California Association of Realtors on a recent poll they took.

Check it out.   It’s amazing with all the recent hoopla about how Millennials love Mid-Town Sacramento with all the night life and restaurants.

Interesting to see the statistic of what most buyers think is important.   Folsom has a lot to offer that is on this list.

Let me know what you think.

Landscaping and Views Affect Values of Duplexes Too…!

People Will Pay More Rent & That Affects Your Value.

If you’re thinking of buying a Sacramento Duplex, I’ve always told investors to not overlook landscaping and “curb appeal” as an important part of your investment.  In addition back yard landscaping with patios, shade trees and privacy enhance your property and make it stand out when you have a rental competing with others and when you decide to sell.

We have such great weather in which a nice back yard adds an extension of the living area because your tenants will hang out there.

In other words a nicely landscaped property front and back will bring you more income and increase the value of your investment.   This is true for Single Family Homes, Duplexes and even apartment complexes.

Take a peek at this graphic from the California Association of Realtors.
