A Bank Owned Home and With a Pool – Will it Carry Itself…?

That’s the question an investor always asks me on a Single Family Home whether it has a pool or not.

The short answer is yes.   Now, while they will not give you a big cash flow return from the beginning, they will pencil out enough that you won’t be writing a check every month to the bank.   That is because we have such low interest rates.

This one is located at 106 Haskins Court here in Folsom.   I previewed it yesterday.   It’s a 4 bedroom 2 bath, with a 3 car garage, a pool,  room for an RV or Boat Parking… You’ll see in the video below that it has some updates that include designer tile floors in all the “high traffic” areas and skylights in both bathrooms.   There was a enough natural light in the house without having the lights on that I was able to get this video even though the power was shut off.

While I know investors are always looking for cash flow, buying a single family home in an upscale area like Folsom will cost you more to start.  But, you will have a better class of tenant and one that pays the rent on time because of the location.

Don’t believe me…?   I know the area because we do Property Management here in town as well.

You Want to Buy A Sacramento Four Plex…? Is The Summer Heat in Sacramento Hot…?

Have You Heard the Phrase…”Give Us Your Highest and Best”…?   How About 22 Offers on this Bank Owned Four-Plex…

A client of mine was one of the parties that made an offer on this 4-plex.  I won’t say how high he and his group bid,  but trust me it was up there.   After viewing it on Sunday, we submitted our offer the next day, this past Monday, Jan. 14th.

Click here for more information about this Four-Plex located at 5544 Keoncrest Circle.

The Listing agent noted in the original listing offering, that all “offers would be presented at 9:00 AM” on the 16th”.

While this week had gone by quickly I had our offer in the back of my mind because we did make a very strong offer.     Here’s a copy of the “update” note I got from the listing agent late this afternoon.   It was sent to all that made offers…

ALL AGENTS.  I wanted to keep you in touch with what is happening with this property.  I did receive 22 offers on this fourplex.  Most were considerably above list price.  These offers were presented to Bank of America yesterday.  At this time I am still waiting for the Multiple Offer/highest and best form from the Asset Manager.  I will forward this onto everybody as soon as I receive it.  Phil Hodgkins Prudential NorCal

Now that you have seen how hot the market is and because almost every thing in this area is getting multiple offers…   How much would you offer…?

Fixed Up:   This complex should rent for $750 each unit = $36,000 per year Gross Annual Income.  If you calculate it would cost you $10,000 per unit to “fix up”..?  What would you pay for it going in…?

I’ll keep you posted and let you know what happens.

In the Mean Time…?

A HomeSteps Bank Owned Duplex in the Rosemont Area – Just On the Market.

Priced Well Below Some Recent Sales Just Around The Corner

While lately there hasn’t been much in the way of Duplex inventory come on the market, when they do, I get out there as soon as possible to see what kind of condition it’s in.

click on the picture to see the video

This one located at 9647-9649 Arlisson Drive, Sacramento, 95827 sits among other Duplex properties and has a great location near some shopping and Hwy 50 access.   It has a 3bed/2ba/2car and a 2bed/2ba/1car configuration.

This one is perfect for an “owner occupied” situation where the owner lives in one side and rents the other.  I think if you were a young person starting out,  it would be real smart to rent out the 3 bedroom side and live in the 2 bedroom side of this Duplex.   However the figures I have below fit the scenario that the 2 bedroom side would be rented and the 3 bedroom side would be occupied by the owner.

Click Here to see how cheap you could live in this Duplex for such a small down payment using an FHA loan

If you are an Investor, you’ll have to wait about 15 days til approximately January 17th before you’ll be able to make a run at it,  because they are offering this property to “owner occupied” folks first.   After that… then the investors get a shot if it’s not sold by then to a Buyer that wants to live there.

Click Here to see the “pro-forma” cash flow analysis if you were to purchase this as an Investment Rental.

A Couple of Unique Bank Owned Homes in Folsom

One Is “Rent Ready” if You’re An Investor – The Other Needs a Little “TLC”.

I”ve been out and about more these days, since the local weather here has been so great, looking at a lot of homes.   I’ve got a couple here that are interesting.

Some features they both have in common are they are both located near parks, open space and the trail systems which are all over the City of Folsom.

The 1st one is located at 1176 Grey Fox Court, in “The Parkway”  and is priced at $310,000.   As of today, January 5th it still shows as an “Active” listing.   Located on a Cul-De-Sac, it’s just a few doors away from the Parkway Trail system and Nature Preserve.

Video is below


The 2nd one is located in the Ridgeview neighborhood at 726 Hunter Place.   It’s got a nice corner lot orientation with some privacy that  includes almost 2,600 sq ft ,  4 bedroom 3 full baths, pool and spa.  Priced at $399,900 it’s also located just a few steps away from the neighborhood park and bike trails.

Video is below

It Might Be Time to Sell.

The Tower Bridge, built in 1935, a popular lan...


I’ve been doing a little reading about the market and ran across this article that I think you might want to take a look at.   The source is from an outfit called Bisnow.

While the story centers on the Denver Area, they also cite examples in Los Angeles and other areas as well.   Their observations are symptomatic of what is occuring in the rest of the country when it comes to Multi-family units.

Anybody looking for a Home in El Dorado Hills with Folsom Lake Views..?

Then Take a Peek at my Review of Two Homes – One a Bank Owned Home and One that is a “normal” Sale.

I’ve been running around the last couple of weeks looking at properties for a prospective buyer that is looking for a Custom Home in either Folsom or El Dorado Hills.   And… if I can get one with a pool, some Sacramento Valley Lights and Folsom Lake Views..? This prospective buyer would view that as a plus.

So lets start here with the Bank Owned Home located at 2740 Aberdeen Lane listed at $664,900.  The listing broker shows it at 4,358 sq.ft, a 1.012 acre lot that includes a Pool, Basketball or Sports Court and a Putting Green.

Now that you have seen the video above, take a look,  if you haven’t seen it already,  of the home located at 2795 Aberdeen Lane.   I did a blog review a couple of days ago but couldn’t get inside because the listing agent hadn’t put a key in the lock box at the time of my inspection.

I went back after I had completed the inspection of the above property a couple of days later.   What you have here below is the inspection that now includes the interior.

So what did you think…?   If I had to make a choice… I think I’d go for the one at 2740 Aberdeen for sure.   While it doesn’t have the almost 180 degree views the house above has, I think you’d have a lot more utility value with 2740 Aberdeen.  The house above had the great views, but it wasn’t really special at all once you got inside… Just my opinion.
