Why Suburban Housing is Making a Comeback with Millennials & Other Generations

Suburban Folsom Real Estate is Sure to Take Advantage of This Trend.

If you look at the graphic below provided by the California Association of Realtors, it shows which generations prefer which kind of housing and lifestyle.   If you haven’t been to Folsom, California I think we are a hit with about all the demographics today.

I’ve lived in Folsom since October 1989 and watched all the changes first hand.  Folsom Real Estate includes a lot to offer that is shown in that graphic below.

If you’re looking for homes with large lots, we’ve got them.   You want a condo with no yard..?   We got them too.  If a home with a small yard close to lots of services is what you like, we got that.

Check out the link to the large new development in Folsom south of Highway 50 called Folsom Ranch which will have a lot of the elements shown in the graphic below.

Note to You Bay Area Investors – You Get More Units for the Same Money in Sacramento

Check out this article to see what I mean.

A recent apartment acquisition here resulted from the sale of 10 units in the Bay Area and doing an exchange into a total of 85 Multi-Family units.

Basically the reason why this investor made this move is because you get a lot more units with a lot more upside and cash flow when you invest in Apartment units in the Sacramento area

So if you’re a Bay Area Investor with property you’d like to sell and exchange for more units in the Sacramento Area, you’ll be joining a few others that have done the same thing.

Sacramento Area is the Best Area Residential Real Estate Investors

In An Improving Economy – Not Enough Homes – Creates Higher Prices & Rents.

If you’re a San Francisco Bay Area home owner or investor and looking for a place to move to or invest in, you can’t really beat the Sacramento Area.

Prices and rents have gone up but are still a bargain when you compare them with Santa Clara, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Alameda and San Francisco Counties.

Just take a peek at what you can buy here in Folsom and compare that where you live in the Bay Area.

If you’re an investor, you can still get a decent Duplex or Four-plex for under $400,000 and have a “cash flow” which is unheard of in the Bay Area now.    Foreign Investors are just parking their money in the Bay Area in hopes of higher appreciation down the line, but they don’t have a decent cash flow return in the mean time.

I thought I’d pass on this article from the East Bay Times.    Maybe it’s time to Move here and/or Invest here…?

And Finally…. The two things we don’t have as bad as the Bay Area….? 1. No Rent Control… 2 And Bay Area “traffic”.

Rates Can Still GO LOWER – Believe it or Not..!

frank and brianThey do regular Real  Estate and Mortgage Loan updates during the week.   I can’t watch them all but the headline today did catch me so I had to “point and click”  to check out what they had to say.

They deliver some great information and a little humor as well thrown in.

I think you’ll find this video worth the time and if you like these guys…..? go sign up for their updates.. !  You don’t have to be in real estate or the lending business to get on their list.

The “relevant” point regarding rates starts at the 3:56 mark

I think you’ll come away with the idea it’s not a bad time buy.  Rates for “investment” properties as of yesterday were at the 4.375% and “owner occupied” at around 3.50-3.75%.

If you’re renting, rents are going up and buying a home is actually “cheaper”… so you might want to consider getting into home now.
