This Duplex was configured as a 2 bedroom 2 bath with a 2 car garage on one side with the other side being a 2 bedroom 1 bath 1 car garage.   The owner on this one had purchased it at the top of the market back in 2004.

With values finally reaching a point where he could sell without having to come to the table with money at the close of escrow, he took advantage of today’s market and moved on.

Listed at $400,000 – Closed escrow at $395,000

PENDING SALE  – This Carmichael Duplex is a 2 bedroom 1 bath units on ea side with one car garages

Now Listed at $355,000 –  We had this one listed originally at  $340,000, with multiple offers.  It was taken off the market to make needed pest control repairs after inspections revealed a termite infestation so bad the property had to be “tented”.

After the work was completed it was put back on the market and is now currently in escrow with a full price CASH OFFER.   It was also a multiple offer situation.

If you haven’t heard, there’s a short supply of Duplexes for Sale in Sacramento.   If you own a Duplex in the Sacramento Area and you are thinking of Selling, now couldn’t be a better time.

Rents Are Up In a Good Market and are Up in Down Market..!

You’d think the opposite would be true but it’s not.

It’s amazing  when you think about it, but after watching the video that I’m going to post below, I realized these guys are right.

When the Real Estate Sales market is “hot” rents go up.   But, even in a down turn, the rent rates still go up.

Messrs Brian Stevens and Frank Garay are a couple of loan guys that do a lot of video updates about the Real Estate Loan market, Real Estate Sales and about some of the “inside baseball” stuff for those of us in the business.

Our Property Management company is now leasing up Units in Apartment complexes, Duplexes and Single Family Homes for record high rental amounts and many times with “multiple applications”.

So after taking a peek at their video that I got today,  I thought I’d share it with you because their conclusion about rents going up in good and bad markets is something I had not thought of.

You can skip the beginning of the video if you want to and go to the 3.43 minute mark to see their presentation that includes an interesting graph to make their point.

If you are thinking of Investing in a Residential Rental property such as a Duplex or a Four-Plex, a Small Apartment complex or even a Single Family home….?

Then, call me at 916-203-1260 or drop a note my way at favinger@rwnetwork.com.

I’ll bring you up to speed on our local market with comparable sales information and also what you can expect to earn in rents.

Sacramento Duplexes for Sale – They Are Still a Good Buy…!

Prices Are Up But So Are Rents…!

If you have been following the Real Estate market when it comes to Duplexes you may have noticed the prices to get into one are up from just a year ago.

Available Sacramento Duplexes for sale in decent areas are scarce.   Furthermore what is out there now for sale do not seem to be in the best of condition with some deferred maintenance on many of them.

I think those owners just want out of the business and now is a good time.

I’ve profiled a few duplexes here that I think will make decent Cash Flow Investments especially if you keep in mind that real estate has always been a long-term situation.

The following 1st two profiles are on Salmon Falls Drive.   We manage a Duplex with the exact configuration located at 9074-9076 Salmon Falls Drive which is next door and across the street from these two… so we know this area.

You will notice when you see the cash flow figures I have two projections, one at the current rents and one at market.

I think many a Seller make the mistake of keeping rents low to avoid vacancies, but when they got to sell, it’s  up to the Buyer and new owner to increase the rents.

9070-9072 Salmon Falls Drive, Sacramento – Listed at $365,000 – 3 bedrooms 2 bath units on each side.  CLICK HERE for a Pro-forma Cash Flow analysis.

9075-9077 Salmon Falls Drive, Sacramento – Listed at $354,900 –  3 bedrooms 2 bath units on each side. CLICK HERE for a Pro-forma Cash Flow  analysis.

Below is a short video tour of the neighborhood where I show you what it looks like.   We manage 3 more Duplexes on the cross street of Tuolumne with recent “move-ins” at $1,400 per month.

 

Now…. After seeing the above numbers if you are from the Bay Area, you should easily see how good an investment Sacramento Duplexes are.

Of course you have to have the right Property Management and we do that as well.

Call or Text me, Ed Favinger at 916-203-1260 or send me an email at favinger@rwnetwork.com and we’ll help you find the right investment for you.

Note to You Bay Area Investors – You Get More Units for the Same Money in Sacramento

Check out this article to see what I mean.

A recent apartment acquisition here resulted from the sale of 10 units in the Bay Area and doing an exchange into a total of 85 Multi-Family units.

Basically the reason why this investor made this move is because you get a lot more units with a lot more upside and cash flow when you invest in Apartment units in the Sacramento area

Sacramento Duplexes for Sale – Sometimes They Need a Make Over…

Don’t Be Afraid to Invest in Fixing Them Up.

I know some investors, especially new investors, would like to purchase a Duplex for sale here in the Sacramento area but get discouraged and hesitant after they’ve seen a few of them.    The reason it seems, is they need a lot of work to bring them up to a decent condition because most of them are over 30 years old.

There are those Sellers that have done very little, if anything, to improve them much less keep up with the ongoing maintenance.   This isn’t always the case but it’s pretty common.

Those Sacramento Duplexes for sale that are updated/upgraded get top dollar with multiple offers in most cases.    People forget that construction just about stopped completely in 2008 and continued up until just recently when builders finally ramped up construction of new homes.

What they haven’t built here in large numbers for many years are “Duplexes”.

Since they haven’t I believe there’s a major opportunity for the smart investor.  It’s true even if you are a beginner in Residential Rental Real Estate such as Duplexes.   Why…?   Because Rents are on the rise with the increase in population and not enough housing stock.

There are many good deals out there in my opinion but you have to also be willing to update/upgrade a unit to make it work.   These are long term investments and my advice is to fix them up.

I have a great example here for your review.    We recently closed a Duplex deal at 10823-10825 Alicante, Rancho Cordova.   We kept the tenant on the left side, cleaned up and enhanced their landscaping front and back to add some utility value.  We did raise their rent about $200 more per month because they were not at market.

On the right side…?   Well we did a “make over”.

Below I have two videos that I did for the owner who contracted with one of our vendors to fix up the right side.   One is a “before” video and the other one is the “after”

The first one shows how it looked before… I am narrating and describing what I’m suggesting he do to get it rent ready.

Below is what it looked like BEFORE….

 

Below is what it looked like AFTER…

 

Let me know what you think.   We had a duplex close escrow just around the corner for $320,000 and it was in worse condition than this one here.

If you are hesitant about purchasing a property that needs work and you live out of the area…?  If you purchase through me, I’ll help you run the project at no extra cost and send you updated videos as the progress occurs.

We then will also manage your investment through our Property Management Company, Haven Properties.   We’re just a telephone call or text message away from helping you find the right investment.

Back Yard Landscaping is Important in a Rental – Don’t Overlook It…!

Check out this graphic from the California Association of Realtors.

Back Yard Landscaping is important because some of these people also rent as well.   While this graphic applies to Home Buyers, trust me as a property manager and investor with 35 years of experience, don’t ignore the back yard for your renters.

A back yard with patios and landscaping is a cheap addition to “living space”.   With the great weather we have here, it makes sense to give the people who rent from you more value don’t you think…?

So if you want more money from your rental investment, fix up the back yard and watch how much your tenants appreciate it because they will pay you back with higher rents.

Click here for a picture of the back yard landscaping of a Duplex we manage for an investor that took our advice.    In a few more years the shrubs around this  yard will provide a lot more shade, privacy and of course more value if they ever decide to sell.

That is because they get more rent then other properties like this that do not have this upgrade.

Let me know what you think.
