Want Some Ideas on Landscaping…?

Check Out The Folsom Garden Club’s Annual “Garden Tour”.

I am amazed at some of the ideas people come up with in landscaping their yards and patios.

The one thing that stood out to me after reading my first landscaping DIY “how to book” from Home Depot, was the reason why people do landscaping.   That is…”landscaping is an extension of the living area”.

So if you are looking at doing some landscaping, whether it is a large project or a small enhancement, why not take in the Folsom Garden Club, 14th annual Garden Tour coming up April 26th and 27th.  It’s a charity event and proceeds go to various scholarships and grants and you’ll get some good ideas about what you might like in your own place.

Here’s a video below of last years tour

Cameron Park Investment Property Coming Back on the Market…?

Two Single Family Detached Homes on One Lot..

We have a buyer that is having difficulty qualifying for a loan and we’ve placed this one back up on the “Active Release” status.

Once we get another offer acceptable to the Seller, the current Buyer will have 24 hours to withdraw from the contract.

The best part about this deal is that the tenants are already in place and want to stay.

This property is in a great location and unique in that it is surrounded by Single Family Homes.   While it’s located near parks, schools and shopping, it’s also a short distance to the Highway 50 onramp to the El Dorado Hills, Folsom and Rancho Cordova work centers.

Take a peek here at the Cash Flow Figures and click here for more pictures.   If you know of anyone looking for an investment like this, please send them the link to this blog post.

Gaslight Apartments – 15 Units – Folsom, California – Back on the Market…!

All The Inspections Are In….

 

If you have been looking for an small apartment complex in Folsom, then today’s your lucky day.    When we first put this property on the Dean side of Gaslightmarket we did not have any inspections so the buyer who wound up with the deal completed them all and then decided he didn’t want to move forward.

So… today so we are putting this back up on the market looking for a new buyer.

If you Click Here, you’ll get all the information including a short exterior video of the property.  If you would like copies of the inspections, please call me and I would be happy to email them to you.

Rent Control – Back On The Radar Screen… Watch Out…!

I’m Just Passing this On….

If you don’t live in California and are reading this from out of state this is a hot button issue in areas like the San Francisco Bay Area and in some parts of Southern California.3d House (XXL)

If you want to see a list of those cities in this state that have rent control laws CLICK HERE.

Now if you are an Investor or even a current Home Owner thinking of renting your place out,  this issue should be a concern because it will affect you.

We just completed a “walk through” inspection of the Gaslight Apartments yesterday. Can you guess what the Bay Area investor asked me…?  “Are there rent control laws here in Folsom”.

He was relieved when I said no.   It was then he commented on how horrible it is in San Francisco and San Jose.

Take a look at this article written by Dan Walters of the Sacramento Bee in today’s paper and get ready to watch some shenanigans on this issue.

Looking for a Nice Four-Plex in a Good Area…?

It’s Too Bad This One is So “Overpriced”…!

As someone who specializes in the sales and management of residential “investment” real estate I make it a point to go out regularly and preview a lot of property to keep up with the market.

A Four-Plex at 3632 Hallelujah Court, Carmichael came back up on the market just a few days ago for a whopping asking price of $688,000.   That price is lower than the original list price of $725,000.   The scheduled gross annual income they are showing is $51,384 which gives this property a GRM (Gross Rate Multiplyer) of 13.38.  With a GRM that high it’s not going to be possible to get a cash flow without a monster downpayment if you need some financing to complete this deal.

Why they are listing this property for so much is beyond me especially when there’s an exact copy of this unit at 5720 Engle Road that closed escrow last October for $495,000.

Click Here For More Information, incuding a “pro-forma” cash flow analysis on the Engle Four-Plex

The Seller of 3632 Hallelujah Court owns the property “free and clear” by the way.  They didn’t raise the price just to cover an existing mortgage.

If you want to compare them, below is a video of the exterior of the property and the one at Engle.   What do you think…? is the Hallelujah property worth almost $200,000 more…?

My conclusion…? Based upon their “scheduled” income and the GRM established by the sale of the Engle Four-Plex, I think the best the Hallelujah owners can expect as a reasonable offer would be nothing higher than $550,000.

 

Make a comment here and let me know what you think.
