A Nice Looking Duplex – Nestled Among Single Family Homes

 

I Wish There Were More Like These on the Market because they are probably the most popular.  Check out the information and the video too…!

 

While out looking at Duplexes that have just come on the market the last few days,  I ran across this one.   I have a client that has purchased some property just around the corner from this property and others in the Rosemont Area.

This Duplex is located at 4001 and 4003 Westporter, Sacramento.    It’s got a configuration of 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and 1 car on each side.   The listing agent has the rents shown as $825.00 for each side but I know these would rent for more.    I think you could get at least $895.00 for each one even though they are smaller units than some of the duplexes we are currently renting not far away from here.

The reason is the location…!

Let me know what you think of this one…   You’ll see that it doesn’t need much work.

In the mean time…?

A Bank Owned Home and A Duplex Profiled Here…

How Many Offers Will They get? And… How Many Will Be Cash ?

Who knows but it seems every home or duplex that I have taken a look at has had multiple offers.

The Sacramento Bee today comes out with another story in today’s paper about how “cash is king” in home shopping.

Anyone who has been in the Real Estate business as an Agent or Broker has known this for a while now.   If you are an Investor or Home Buyer that has been searching in this market to make a purchase in the last few months,  the SacBee story didn’t say anything new to you, did it..?

So let’s take a look at a couple of properties here that I’ve recently seen.   One is a single family home in Elk Grove that is next to a home that I listed last May at 2220 Yarnell Way.  By the way, we had 13 offers on it.  The other is a Duplex near the Carmichael Area.

The House – 2216 Yarnell Way, Elk Grove – a monster 3 bedroom 2.5 bath with a large bonus room that should be converted to a 4th bedroom if you are an investor looking to rent it out.   It’s listed at $225,000 and has 2600 sq ft of living space.   The listing agent said he’s not going to look at any offers until the 5th of September, so you have time.

Click here for the video walk through I did on Sept 1st.

The Duplex – 5208 – 5210 Shereen Court, Sacramento, Ca –  A large duplex with 3 bedrooms 2 baths & 2 car garage with a 2 bedroom 2 bath & 1 car garage that is listed at $259,000.   I personally think this is a little high but in this market who knows.   When I did the walk through I noticed a business card from another agent was left on the kitchen counter so I sent her a “text message” asking her for her opinion.   She also thought it was too high but did say her client was going to write an offer on it.

Click here for the video walk through of the Vacant Unit only.

Click here for a “pro-forma” cash flow analysis based upon the existing rents in the occupied unit & rents at $1,000 for the 2 bedroom 2 bath unit.

 Oh and by the way… These properties above just came on the market a few days ago.

 

Make it a Great Day…!

Some Sacramento Cash Flow Opportunities I Like..!

I’ve got profiles of a Duplex “Flip”, A Short Sale Duplex & a 6 Unit Complex.

 

 

Let’s talk about the Short Sale Duplex 1st.

6813-15 Greenback Lane, Citrus Heights – Listed at $129,500 a few days ago.  They are accepting offers tomorrow, August 20th around 6PM.    This will get multiple offers..!

______________________________________________

Here’s a “Flip” Duplex.

6604 Summer Rain Way, Citrus Heights, Ca – Listed at $214,888.   2 bedrooms 1 bath ea side.    Rents should be at $1,000 per unit on this street because our company manages a unit a couple of doors away.  One unit is vacant and the other is reported to be renting at $750.00  per month.

Click Here for the Video of the one vacant unit

Click here for a video of the Duplex we manage just a couple doors away for comparison

______________________________________________

You have to take a look at this 6 unit deal located at 1911 El Monte, Sacramento, Ca.    It consists of 6 separate single family homes on one lot.  Listed at $299,000 I think this is probably one of the better deals out there now.   The problem with this one is that it must be a cash deal because its difficult to get multi-unit financing with loans below $500,000.   They’ve had a couple of deals fall out because the Buyers could not get financing.

Click Here for the Exterior Video and I’ll think you’ll agree with me that this is a “unique” property.

Click here for a list of expenses I got from the listing agent.   I don’t know if these are annual figures or..?  The reason I say that is because they look high for some reason.  You will notice there is a “gas” utility bill included which would be unusual in a situation like this.   This is something you’d have to clarify of course in your due diligence review of their income and expenses.

Who Pays for Pest Control Reports…?

An Interesting Subject Especially When a Bank Loan is Involved

This was question from a reader on Trulia.com a day or so ago.

Click on the link below and see what I and other Real Estate Professionals had to say.  Pay attention as to why you don’t want to even include a Pest Inspection in your offer if you are using the C.A.R. contract forms.

It’s a function of today’s market.

I think you’ll find the short read interesting and informative.

Pest Inspection – Who Pays..? In So Cal..? In Nor Cal..?

In the Mean Time..?

You’re From the Bay Area and Thinking of Buying an Investment Here…?

And Schools are an Important Factor to you…?    See what I and other professionals here had to say to a question on Trulia.com…

The question from an investor in the Sunnyvale area of the South Bay area of San Francisco had to do with his curiosity about the Sacramento Region.   A big concern of his was the quality of the schools here.

The reason  Investors have that as a concern is that they know that in areas of great schools people will pay more for the price of a home and pay for more for the privilege of living there in rent.   The reason is you will get a better class of tenant if you will.

Investors know that people who are concerned with the quality of schools are also concerned about the quality of the education they will receive for their kids.  It  also means they will be great tenants for their investment.

Since prospective tenants will pay more to rent in an area if their kids will have access to great schools, the investors know their property will grow more in value as time goes on.

What makes “great schools”…?   My opinion is that great schools exist is because of “Parental Involvement”.   That’s what you see here in the areas we discussed in our answers to the question of this investor on Trulia.

A Tenant Caused Problem That an Addendum Protects You From

I’m talking about damage that installation of a Satellite Antennae can cause.

If you haven’t experienced this issue, let me inform you the law provides that you must allow a tenant to install a Satellite Dish or Antennae if he or she wants to.    

However, you as the Owner/Landlord have some rights.

You can dictate where they can put it and if the only area that you allow it to be installed does not give adequate reception, this is not your problem.

We recently had a tenant at one of our Esplanade condos here in Folsom  install a Dish on the exterior wall of the building which caused him to bear the costs of removal and the HOA fine.   He never got our permission to install it in the first place.

We had another tenant in a Single Family home here Folsom who decided to install a Satellite dish in the attic.    The contractor/technician that installed it damaged a brand new HVAC system to the tune of $1,500.   Guess who’s responsible for that…?

To eliminate any ambiguity as to who pays for the damage this issue might cause, we use the California Apartment Association’s  “Satellite Dish/Antennae Addendum” in all of our leases.    Tenants “must” get our permission to install a Dish or Antennae.

Using this form will put the responsibility on the tenant to maintain your property and not let them off the hook if they damage it by the installation of a Dish.

Just one more reason to use a professional property management company…!

 

Make it a Great Day…!

Looking for a Pride of Ownership Duplex that will “cash flow”…?

If you don’t want a “fixer” this might be what you are looking for.

This Duplex just recently fell out of escrow.   It’s a long story, but suffice it to say, it wasn’t the fault of the property.   In fact, the Buyer’s appraisal came in at the List Price of $214,500.

The former Buyer made some mistakes in obtaining her loan on time.   So when her time to close came and went with no loan approval, the Seller elected to withdraw from that contract and put it back on the market again.

So here’s your chance.

I’ve got a video below and if you want to see what the numbers look like, the “proforma cash flow” analysis is available if you  CLICK HERE.

 

 

If you have any questions regarding this or any other Residential Investment Property in the Sacramento Region, drop me a note or call me.

There’s Just Not Much Inventory These Days…!

I don’t care if you are looking for a Single Family Home, a Duplex or even a Small to Medium sized Apartment Complex.

I think it’s called a “feeding frenzy“.    Because, if you ask just about any active Real Estate Broker or Agent in this area, they will all tell you the same thing.  There’s really no inventory to speak of.   And by the way… This is “old” news to those of us in the business.

The Sacramento Bee is finally getting the memo… They came out with a story about investors just a couple of days ago.  Check out their report.

I’m actively working with several investors that have been looking for properties all up and down the ranges.   From a Custom Home in El Dorado Hills to Duplexes in Rancho Cordova.

Click here for a quick story regarding the Custom Home with the multiple offers on 820 Katie Way, El Dorado Hills.

One more little “anecdotal” story from my own experiences.

Yesterday, a Duplex at 6938-38 Tarocco Way hits the market in Citrus Heights.   Click here for the “pro-forma” cash flow analysis. Incredibly as I predicted,  to a couple of my clients, this place didn’t last long.   The agent wouldn’t tell me what its “pending price” is, but he did say they had 6 offers on it.   Not bad for just “one day” on the market.

By the way… take note on the “pro-forma” that I had the offer price at $200,000 because based upon their income it pencils out pretty nice.    We’ll have to wait and see what the final “sales” price is.

In the Mean Time…?
