How’s the Real Estate Market…?

Foreclosures At a 20 Year Low

I get this question all the time from people asking me “how is the real estate market?”.

The short answer is, Great…!

I have some links below that will give you some insight but in the greater Sacramento Area I think it’s one of the best I’ve seen.   Why do I say that…?

Have you tried to get a contractor or handyman to fix something at a rental…?  When you’ve got contractors busy with a back log of weeks out, that’s probably one of the best signs of a great real estate market.

Multi-Family Residential a Favorite for Investors

Late Cycle Real Estate Investing Strong

I thought I’d share an article from Bisnow.com.   You can subscribe I think for free and they will send you information to your inbox with Real Estate and other business news.

The reason I thought I’d share this is because many people I talk to,  including other Real Estate professionals, have the feeling the Real Estate Market is slowing down.Late cycle investing Bulls and Bears

However, the BisNow article points out the trends just before the great recession and the trends of today, especially when it comes to Multi-Family Residential,  are much different.

I share the optimism of the writer of the article because it applies to all residential income properties in this area at least, in my opinion.  Those types of properties include Single Family Homes, Duplexes, Four-Pelxes and Apartments.

They just can’t build enough units but they are trying.

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.

These Duplexes for Sale are what I call “Bread and Butter” type of Investments.Hand writing the text: Rental Income

 

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.

Just Listed – Rancho Cordova Duplex for Sale…!

Great Prime Area of Rancho Cordova

We’ve just listed a Duplex for sale at 2621-2623 Capitales Drive, Rancho Cordova.   Rancho Cordova in my opinion is the “sleeper” area for Duplexes.

You can get top dollar rents because it’s an area that is near everything.   Schools, shopping, Light Rail and Hwy 50 on-ramps are very close by.

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.

Interesting to see the statistic of what most buyers think is important.   Folsom has a lot to offer that is on this list.
