More Old News From the Sacramento Bee – When It Comes to Real Estate

I’ve Been Telling Folks For Years That They Had Stopped Building New Homes Here.

I can case you haven’t yet seen this article from the Sacramento Bee,  I’ve got the link for you below.

However… I have to add that the only reason prices haven’t climbed higher is the still high unemployment in this area.    When that gets better, you’ll see prices and demand really go up and new homes coming on the market.

Sacramento area home builders struggle with rising demand, lack of ready lots

 

Now… In the mean time…?

Make it a Great Day…!

This Real Estate Market Needs Sellers…

Short Inventory Will Cause You To Bump Into The Same Folks Looking At The Stuff You Are.

This was the case for us on Sunday, April 7th.

We are marketing a Duplex at 7243-45 Castilian Court, Citrus Heights and had scheduled an “open house” tour for a couple of hours starting about 12:00 PM.     

I met a Buyer that had written an offer on this duplex at the property and then decided to look at other similar properties open that day.   At a couple of places we ran into the some folks we’d seen earlier.

Later that day I was showing property to a lady looking for a single family home in Roseville.   At every home except for one, there were folks either coming out as we were going in or coming in as we were going out.   On more than one occasion we ran into familiar faces that we had bumped into earlier in the day.

Just another day in Real Estate in a short inventory environment.

If you know of someone thinking of Selling a their home, selling a rental property or apartment complex, we’d like to know.

 

In the Mean Time…?

Make it a Great Day…!

There’s a large park that can be accessed by the tenants who live in this building.

_______________________

Both of these properties need some work.   I’m not talking major structural stuff.   No we’re talking about the curb appeal and deferred maintenance that exists on both.   These are the kinds of properties if fixed up, will generate a better class of tenant and enhance the neighborhood instead of being somewhat of an eyesore.

By the way… All of the numbers you see in those “pro-forma” cash flow analysis’ are “estimates”.

If anyone that checks in on this site and is interested in these or any other properties, please send me a note or call me.

In the mean time…?

Make it a Great Day…!
