Tips for Buying Real Estate Today as a Sacramento Investor

sacramento investor

A Sacramento investor today might want to consider buying a halfplex.

It doesn’t take a Sacramento investor to know that returns on money market accounts and CDs are fairly dismal at the moment. The stock market, too, can be a bit volatile, especially if you aren’t willing to risk a loss. In fact, I received an urgent letter from Capital One (which used to be ING) offering me one of the nation’s highest rates of 1%. You know, like any other Sacramento Realtor, we really don’t want to see interest rates rise but criminy, the rates of return for secure investments are so incredibly lousy and have been lousy for years. Can we have a little inflation, please? read more

Sacramento Duplex Sold in Four Days With 10 Offers

sacramento duplex

2323 Matson Dr, Sacramento, is a Sacramento duplex that was for sale at $265K.

The sellers of a Sacramento duplex were referred to me by a previous client. With the exception of my internet marketing, all my other clients tend to come from referrals, but that’s what happens when a Sacramento Realtor has worked in the business for 40-some years. Veteran agents (who are also top producers) are not out there in the dirt, scratching for business. I thank my lucky stars every day for that.

The sellers are simply delightful people, and I truly enjoyed selling this duplex for them. When we met to discuss price, they thought my suggested listing price was too high. They had done a bit of research and were prepared to sell for much less. See, you can’t get values online. This is one of the main reasons to hire a good Sacramento Realtor who will tell you the truth about your sales price with her finger firmly placed on the pulse of the market. I can often predict the sales price that will attract a buyer. What I can’t always predict is exactly how high the bidding will go, but I can surely set the stage for multiple offers. read more

Cute starter home at 8375 Holly Jill Way, Sacramento, CA 95823

Ooooo, la, la, what a cute starter home in such a nice neighborhood near Elk Grove. This is a brand new listing for sale in Sacramento, and it’s affordable. This beautiful ranch would make a great place to call home for a first-time home buyer, an investor or even for retired people who are downsizing. It’s been meticulously maintained by the seller for over 30 years.

The seller painted the walls at some point, not a mark that I could find on them. The carpets are in great shape. Even the ceilings seem perfect, no cracks or imperfections. The roof is fairly new, maybe 10 years or so. This seller has kept on top of her home maintenance, and her family has helped her as well throughout the years. read more

Looking for a Duplex in Sacramento at a Good Price?

2323 Matson Dr, Sacramento, CA 95822, is a duplex for sale at $265,000.

I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled up to this duplex in Sacramento and waited for the sellers last Saturday. The roof looks to be in good condition, the siding is vinyl, and it seems very well maintained. This is an investment property that’s been owned by the sellers for many decades, held in a trust. The successor trustees are now selling the property.

Met with the lovely tenants on each side, and they have been living here for 3 years or more. Very cooperative, friendly and sweet people with small children. The place showed pretty well for having children. Everything was cleaned up and picked up, and the tenants are very agreeable to showings, unlike some tenants I don’t wanna talk about. read more
