Sacramento Duplexes For Sale – Not Much Inventory – Prices Up

Yea… There’s Not Much To Choose From, But,  Rents Are Up Too….

If you are curious about the market regarding Sacramento Duplexes for Sale, I’ve got some recent stats/graphs for you.   We’re still in a Seller’s Market and I think you’ll see the graphs below make the point.  I think they will also change a bit next month.

If you have ever read any of my past articles, I’ve always said  “A nice well maintained Duplex will sell for a pretty good price now with multiple offers”, or something to that effect.   The Duplexes that don’t sell quickly generally have these characteristics.

  • Poor or “Fair” Curb Appeal and General Appearance – Lack Pride of Ownership.
  • Rents that are lower or much lower than Market Rent.
  • Price is not reflective of the above 2 conditions.

Low Rents – Updates/Upgrades:

If you are thinking of Selling your Duplex or for that matter any kind of Rental Investment Property, you might think about upgrading/updating the property a little.

Having the same great tenants over several years time does not translate into a much better positive outcome in the sale if the rents they are paying are only about 1/2 of what the same unit would rent for today.

Generally if you aren’t keeping the rents up, you aren’t maintaining the property because you don’t have the cash flow.   Tenants know when they are getting a good deal.

However, if you are a buyer and make an offer on one of these types of properties I’m describing above, you’ll have to take into account the Updates/Upgrades you might be faced with to get the “higher rents” the Seller says you can get.

We recently were in escrow on a Rancho Cordova Duplex the Seller has owned for almost 30 years.   Both units were in need of work.   One of the units had 6  people living in a 2 bedroom 1 bath unit.   Both units were paying only $800.00 per month when the “market rate” is in the $1,300 to $1,400 range.

The deal fell through because the Buyer wanted an adjustment in the price to reflect the deferred maintenance and the low rents.   The buyer would have to get possession by giving a 60 day notice to terminate tenancy before being able to start the “rehab” process.  The unit would then be vacant for another 30 days at least.   There was too much to over come… Low Rents /Poor Condition/High Price.

Let me know what you think of these stats.

If you are thinking of Buying a Sacramento Duplex you want to take into account not only the condition, but the existing tenants and their current rent as well.   As long as you are aware of these issues, you’ll make a better informed decision on whether to go through the deal or not.

Sacramento Duplexes For Sale – Bread & Butter Income Units

Rents are Low – But These Still Might Work…!

While there aren’t too many Sacramento Duplexes for sale on the market these days that I like a lot, there are some Duplexes I think might work out for the right investor.

Take a peek at the information I have below here.   I’m profiling these Duplexes for Sale based upon their current situation and what I think the ultimate sale price should realistically end up being.

I will profile other Sacramento Duplexes later so come back here from time to time.

Folsom FourPlexes For Sale….!

These Four-Plexes For Sale in Folsom Are a Rare Occurrence

It not very often that we get a FourPlex for sale on the market here in Folsom but now there are two of them,  205 and 211 Talisman Drive, Folsom.

While they have a great location in a town with all the amenities you’d want close by in an Investment, there are some down sides to these properties.

Both of these FourPlexes have some deferred maintenance of between $12,000 – $15,000 as disclosed by the Pest Inspections provided by the listing broker.

 

Deferred maintenance is not an uncommon thing, but the other issue I discovered an investor is going to have to take into account is the rents can not be raised on most of these units until very late into 2020.

Click here for the rent roll and you’ll see what I’m talking about.  Only one unit that is currently vacant would be available to raise the rent to market.

Click here for a Rental Market Survey.   You can see rents are at a premium here in Folsom and it’s a sad thing the rental rates were locked in with leases expiring in 2020.

Click here for a Pro-forma Cash Flow Analysis for both Fourplexes

As you can see the Cash Flow is a bit skinny on these FourPlexes.   This is not uncommon in today’s market because  most of the time investors area able to increase the rents after close of escrow.  However in this situation, you’ll not be able to raise the rent for a long time.

Anyone who gets into escrow on these two FourPlexes will need to review the Seller’s documentation and Maintenance history carefully.   And again they will have to take into account rents will be locked in for a long time.

But hey… These are located in Folsom which is one of neatest towns in California.   There’s not much on the market now so if you are hot to buy a Folsom FourPlex…. this is what you can get now.

If you want more information about Residential Investment Properties like Duplexes and Four Plexes, call or text me at 916-203-1260 or drop a note my way via email at: favinger@rwnetwork.com.

Sacramento Duplexes – A Good Buy for Long Term Cash Flow…!

Sacramento Duplex Prices Are Steady & Rents Are Good…!

With the annual rate of appreciation of Real Estate prices in the Sacramento area generally slowing down a bit buying a Duplex here might be a little easier with fewer multiple offers.

20140905_144808Don’t get me wrong if you have been looking for an Investment like a Sacramento Duplex there are still multiple offers occurring.

That is especially true if the Duplex has been well maintained with good curb appeal and a great tenant profile paying close to or at Market Rents.

Those Duplexes that have some deferred maintenance issues and below market rents will take a little longer to sell if they are not priced correctly to make up for their deficiencies.

Here’s some quick statistics for you regards closed sales from January 1, 2019 to Date, February 12th.

Average Average   Pct of
List Price Sales Price List Price
 $  371,088  $   365,641 98.5%

As you can see it looks like prices have stabilized somewhat, but the rents are still going up.   Maybe now is the time to make a move into Buying a Sacramento Duplex.

If you’re thinking of investing in Sacramento Duplexex, maybe a Four-Plex or even a small Apartment complex please drop me an email note at favinger@rwnetwork.com or call/text me at 916.203.1260.

By the way… We do Property Management as well.

Sacramento & Rancho Cordova Duplex Investors – Heads Up…!

The Way You Manage Your Duplex Will Determine The Rent Return & Appreciation Down The Line

Over the years since I’ve been writing here,  I’ve discussed Investing in Sacramento Duplexes for sale.  Other areas with great potential are Citrus Heights, Carmichael and Rancho Cordova with a lot of neighborhoods of Duplexes that come up for sale from time to time.

While in many respects Duplexes have the same amenities as a Single Family home, they are for the most part properties occupied by “non-owners” called Tenants.

An Investment Property like a Duplex has to be managed correctly to get the most value out of your investment in the form of higher rents and of course at re-sale increased appreciation.

I’ve got a little slide show that I would like to share with you.   This is one of my pet peeves – the lack of proper management and allowing Tenants to do what they want with your Investment.

What is my pet peeve…?   Parked cars on the front yard grass.    See below.

 

What do you think…?

If you are thinking of buying a Duplex in the Sacramento Area, think about managing it as well.   Good management will make you money.     Check out our Property Management Company.
