High Costs of Rent in Sacramento Turns Renters into Home Buyers

Old News To Us in Real Estate.

There have been several articles all over the print and social media about the rising rental rates here in the Sacramento Region.   It was only a matter of time before Renters would turn into Home Buyers because it’s cheaper.

Our Property Management Company with approximately 400 total units of various configurations has only 7 current vacancies with, we think,  another 7 coming up within the next 30 days or so.Hand writing the text: Buying a Home

So it’s no surprise to those of us who work in the field everyday when we hear another news report about the market.

So after listening to the morning news on KFBK I got another news story from KCRA Channel 3 talking about the same thing.

Millennials are beginning to buy homes because Rents are so high here they’ve now begun to figure out it’s a better deal to Buy and own.

I’ve noticed that a lot of the Sacramento Duplexes being financed by FHA loans which are only given to Owner Occupied Buyers.. another trend in my opinion.   I’ve written before about buying a Duplex to live in one side and rent the other.  No surprise to me of late seeing more people do just that.

If you are currently a renter and would like to be a Home Owner, contact me today and I’ll get you started on your way.

In the Mean Time…?

Sacramento Duplexes – A Good Buy for Long Term Cash Flow…!

Sacramento Duplex Prices Are Steady & Rents Are Good…!

With the annual rate of appreciation of Real Estate prices in the Sacramento area generally slowing down a bit buying a Duplex here might be a little easier with fewer multiple offers.

20140905_144808Don’t get me wrong if you have been looking for an Investment like a Sacramento Duplex there are still multiple offers occurring.

That is especially true if the Duplex has been well maintained with good curb appeal and a great tenant profile paying close to or at Market Rents.

Those Duplexes that have some deferred maintenance issues and below market rents will take a little longer to sell if they are not priced correctly to make up for their deficiencies.

Here’s some quick statistics for you regards closed sales from January 1, 2019 to Date, February 12th.

Average Average   Pct of
List Price Sales Price List Price
 $  371,088  $   365,641 98.5%

As you can see it looks like prices have stabilized somewhat, but the rents are still going up.   Maybe now is the time to make a move into Buying a Sacramento Duplex.

If you’re thinking of investing in Sacramento Duplexex, maybe a Four-Plex or even a small Apartment complex please drop me an email note at favinger@rwnetwork.com or call/text me at 916.203.1260.

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.
