It’s the Fall Season – Now’s The Time to Improve The Landscaping..!

Trees In this Area Raise the Value of Your Home Or Investment – Some Helpful Links to help you pick the “right tree”…

Anyone who follows this blog site or is a current/past client of mine knows how I feel about the impact of  good landscaping on a Home or a Rental Investment Property.

Here’s a short slide show below that shows a “before” and “after” of a Duplex in Orangevale that we manage.

Today is Sept 29th and already you can feel the evening air is a little more crisp and mornings are kind of chilly.   I bet you have noticed in the last couple of days that the trees in the area are beginning to change their color.

What Kind of Tree

We are having a discussion right now in our company regarding landscaping improvements and a planting day for various properties we manage throughout the region.    Among the discussion was some suggestions of various kinds of trees.

I’m partial to deciduous trees because they are fast growing and give some great colors.

Here’s a great resource to help you find the right tree.  It’s the Sacramento Tree Foundation’s website.

Here’s a list of what they will tell you that I found informative.

  • The Scientific Name
  • Mature Height
  • Mature spread
  • Leaves
  • Fruit
  • Root system – where it has large surface roots
  • Where you can see a “specimen”
  • and… “minimum” planting distances from fences… pools… between trees etc.

I looked up Red Maple and took a drive out to Carmichael near the intersection of Oak Avenue and California Avenue to get a picture of it.  It is a big tree as you can see.  I didn’t have time to go to the other locations that show smaller specimens.

If you wanted to see what a mature tree looks like before you plant it, this is a great resource for you.

I hope this gives you some useful information.

Home Appreciation in the Sacramento Region…

Are We in a Bubble…?


I’ve had many people ask me this question because of the rapid rise in appreciation of real estate prices in the area in the last couple of years.

While no one can predict the future with any certainty, all I can say is I don’t think so.

I thought I’d share a link to an article in the Sacramento Business Journal for their views on the subject.

Home appreciation isn’t another bubble, expert says

Let me know what you think…
