Landlords Market in Sacramento Area – Bad News If You Are a Renter…!

Rents Are Up “Big Time”…So Start Your Search Early ..!


If you’re a Landlord/Investor in the Sacramento Area and recently tried to lease or rent up an apartment you were probably shocked at the responses.  Old news to us in the Residential Investment and Property Management business.rental search

Rents are up so much in the Sacramento Area and supply so low,  if you’re a person looking to rent, you’d better start your search very early and have any credit issues resolved first, because it is a “landlords market”.

You may not have heard but Landlords and Property Managers are experiencing “multiple” applications for just about every unit that comes up.

It doesn’t matter what kind of property we’re talking about either.   Our Property Management company has so many people seeking a Home/Apartment to rent that we have set  up a  “showing/viewing” schedule each week posted on the website instead of making specific appointment times when prospective tenants call.

On most occasions now days we have several prospective tenants come to those showings and many of them will bring a completed application as well.

This kind of Landlord’s market will make most investors smile.   So if you are thinking of getting into the Residential Investment market, this is a great time.   No one seems to know when the rise in Rental Rates will stop because there’s a lack of supply.

With an improving economy with lots of jobs and a lack of supply,  even paying more for the investment won’t necessarily be a bad thing.

Call me at 916-203-1260 or drop a note to and we’ll see if we can’t place you into an investment that works for you.

Now… If you are a prospective tenant with good income…?  May I suggest you think about buying because it will be better for you in the long term.    Call me and we’ll see if we can’t get you “pre-qualified” with the various loan programs that are available to you.

In the mean time…?

Make it a Great Day..!

You’re From the Bay Area and Thinking of Buying an Investment Here…?

And Schools are an Important Factor to you…?    See what I and other professionals here had to say to a question on…

The question from an investor in the Sunnyvale area of the South Bay area of San Francisco had to do with his curiosity about the Sacramento Region.   A big concern of his was the quality of the schools here.

The reason  Investors have that as a concern is that they know that in areas of great schools people will pay more for the price of a home and pay for more for the privilege of living there in rent.   The reason is you will get a better class of tenant if you will.

Investors know that people who are concerned with the quality of schools are also concerned about the quality of the education they will receive for their kids.  It  also means they will be great tenants for their investment.

Since prospective tenants will pay more to rent in an area if their kids will have access to great schools, the investors know their property will grow more in value as time goes on.

What makes “great schools”…?   My opinion is that great schools exist is because of “Parental Involvement”.   That’s what you see here in the areas we discussed in our answers to the question of this investor on Trulia.
