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.

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.

3d render image of houses with graph growing

Overflow of Multiple Tenant Applications Since the Start of the New Year.

If you are an investor in the Sacramento Residential Investment Market and have been actively looking for something to buy,  you know there’s been multiple offers presented on a lot of the inventory here.

The reason is simple… not enough supply.3d render image of houses with graph growing

While that is frustrating for some investors who are looking to get into the market because the economy here is good,  if you’re a renter….?

You’ll notice that rental rates have gone up for the very same reason and that you aren’t the only ones applying for the same place.

Our Property Management Company has experienced a serious up tick in rental applications on our available properties that started the day after January 1st.

Since  we specialize in  Sales & Management of Duplexes and Four-plexes for sale, Small Apartment buildings  and of course sales of Single Family Homes,  please call me at 916-203-1260 or drop a note my way at favinger@rwnetwork.com.

If you want to get into the Sacramento Residential Rental Market you could not pick a better time.

I’ll help find the right deal for you and since we manage these investments we know what income you can reasonably expect to get.

Maybe we can find something like the one below.

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.

Sacramento Rental Rate Increases Highest In California…

Surrounding Suburbs, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Roseville Affected too.

We’ve been experiencing Rental Rate Increases for a long time here in the Sacramento Region.  This includes not only Sacramento, but the surrounding communities as well, such as Elk Grove, Roseville, Woodland, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Lincoln, Fair Oaks, and Carmichael to name a few.

The Sacramento Bee has a story today regarding Rent Rate Increases.  They are primarily talking about the Downtown/Midtown area which has experienced a “renaissance” because of the development in and around the Golden One Center.

Sacramento Rent Increase Rates Highest in the State of California

Sacramento Rent Increase Rates Highest in the State of California

The Sacramento Midtown Area has been very popular with the younger generation and some seniors because of the proximity to jobs, entertainment and restaurants.

As I have said in the past you almost have to “know somebody inside” to be able to get a decent rental these days.

To give you an idea of how strong the rental market is, we seem to average about 5 applications for every property we advertise.

An example of what I am talking about…?  As of today, July 26, 2017, here’s a short list of a couple of Duplex apartments being advertised by our Property Management Company with pending applications we are processing now.

Note to Duplex Investors or for that matter, any Residential Real Estate Investors from Single Family Homes up to Apartment complexes.   You’ll have several applications to rent if you decide to invest in the Sacramento area.

Until they start to build more Apartments and Homes this trend will continue given the great economy we have going at this time.

If you’re thinking of buying/investing in the Sacramento area, please call me at 916-203-1260 or send me a note at favinger@rwnetwork.com and let me help you find the best deal out there today.

If you’re an owner now and thinking of selling, contact me and let’s take a look at your investment property.   I can help you get the most out of your investment with some ideas you might not have considered.

Sales of Sacramento Duplexes are Hot..!

No Re-Sale Inventory & Rents Are Going Up

I’ve been working the Sacramento Area Duplex Market for a few years now and while we’ve had spurts of price growth in the past, I think this current market is poised to bust through the price ceiling  of 2005 and 2006.Duplex

While we’ve been involved in Sacramento Duplex Sales and Management all over the region.  However, it seems Duplexes located in the Sacramento zip codes of 95826, 95827 and the Rancho Cordova zip code of 95670 are noteworthy because we’ve placed a lot of investors in these areas and we manage them as well.

I thought I’d share the latest information regarding the Sales Data for Sacramento and Rancho Cordova Duplexes with you that I sent to Duplex owners hoping to find someone willing to sell now.

Click Here for a copy of that report.

Rents are also going up.   Many of these Duplexes for sale will not have the rents at their current market so it will be up to you, the investor,  to know how much you can raise them in order to make a deal make sense.

If you’re thinking of Investing in a Sacramento Duplex, call or send me a note and I’ll be able to analyze the property for it’s potential performance.

We also perform Property Management services as well that is “2nd to none”.

Being A Landlord Is Easy When Tenants Have Jobs…!

Unemployed People Have a Hard  Time Paying Rent

 

jobs

 

You have to have jobs so people who want to live in your rental investment have the ability to pay the rent.

It looks like the Sacramento Region has 21,000 jobs available according to this “linkedin” email alert I got this morning.

Check it out here.

The Rental Market in Sacramento is hot.  Sales and Investing in the Sacramento Region hot as well.

We’ve experienced multiple rental applications for Duplexes, Single Family Homes and Apartments we manage for the last several months.   They haven’t built enough inventory for the amount of people looking to move into a home or an apartment.

So if you’re thinking of Buying/Investing in a Single Family Home, a Duplex here in the Sacramento Region or even a small to medium sized apartment complex, call/text me at 916-203-1260 or drop an email my way and lets talk about what your goals are.

Why You Should Be Investing in Sacramento Single Family Houses, Duplexes, Four-Plexes & Apartments…?

It’s a Landlord’s Market Right Now – And It’s only February – Now is the best time to buy .

Have you thought about Investing in the Sacramento Area’s Single Family Home Rental market, or maybe a Duplex, perhaps a Four Plex or even a Small Apartment Complex…?   If you have, then let me show you how smart you would be if you were to buy in the Sacramento market today.

Usually this  time of year when  a tenant moves out and we have to get it re-rented it’s kind of slow and takes a little longer.   Not this year though.

Our Property Management Company, Haven Properties has leased up in the month of January approximately 10 units.

That inventory included Single Family Home rentals in Folsom, Citrus Heights, a couple of 4 plex apartments in Rancho Cordova and several Duplex  rentals in Citrus Heights, Sacramento and Fair Oaks.

1089 Kantne Way, Folsom – Recently Leased up for $2,300 + Tenant Pays Folsom Utilities

Want more examples…?

Earlier today we had a gentlemen walk into our office with paper work to support his application that he had completed “on-line” at HavenRents.com.

We’ve had people call us regarding properties we’ve leased up over a month ago that are still on-line in various website portals that we syndicate to.

Another lady called me about 10 minutes ago as I write this looking for a house while she’s been living in a hotel for 3 months.    I told her what I’ve told a lot of people trying to find a decent rental…“you have to almost know someone inside to find a decent place to rent.”

Bottom line, if you own a rental property now and you haven’t raised the rents in a while because you are worried about losing a tenant and not being able to re-rent again quickly…?

Forget about it because, mostly likely,  the current tenant will stay unless they can’t afford it.   The reason…? Once they start looking around, they will see they have a really good deal even if they have to pay a little more.

So… if you’re thinking of Investing in a Duplex, a Four-Plex, a Single Family Home rental or even a small apartment complex call me today and let me help you get the right Real Estate Investment for you.

Interest rates are low if you need financing.  If you have a lot of $$$ in a low performing 401K, you might want to consider Rental Real Estate to see if it would perform better.

Please call or email me and let me show you how investing in the Residential Rental Market might be the best thing you ever did.

Sacramento Apartment Market Projections – 2017

Just passing on an article and information I just received.

If you’re thinking of getting into the Multi-Family Housing market as an Investor and you’re new at it, I’m sure you’ve thought a lot and hopefully have done some research.   You can always contact me for more information and set up a time for a free consultation.

The Sacramento Apartment Market is one of the top 20 in the nation and is still affordable especially compared to some markets in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In our market we find it’s hard to find a 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment unit with lots of amenities for under $1,000 per month.

To get an idea of what we have for rent go to HavenRents.com and you’ll get a sense of what the prices are for various types of properties we currently have available.   You can also go to the “rentals page” here on this site.

I received and thought I’d share a 2017 market projection from CBRE, a large real estate investment company that works in Retail, Office, Industrial and of course Multi-family projects through out the the country.

CLICK HERE for that article and go to Page 31 for their “Multi-Family” projections.   I think you’ll appreciate their findings and conclusions.   It looks to me like the Sacramento Region’s Multi-Family market should remain strong.   I think this remains especially true in the smaller multi-family units, such as Duplexes, Four-Plexes or small apartment complexes.   Why…?  Because they haven’t built any in the last several years.   Sacramento Duplexes/Four-plexes for sale don’t stay on the market very long.

So if you have stumbled on this blog site and are thinking of investing in the Residential Real Estate Market in the Sacramento area please contact me at anytime.    We specialize in the Sales and Management of Single Family Homes, Duplexes, Tri-plexes, Four-plexes and small to medium sized apartment complexes.
