We Need Jobs In The Sacramento Region – Looks Like More Could Be on The Way…?

Check out this report regarding large office space..!

When I’ve been approached by people curious about the Real Estate market in Folsom, El Dorado Hills and the rest of the Greater Sacramento Region and what they think the future is…. well,  the answer has always been…”depends on the job market”.

If you don’t have good paying jobs, you’re not going to have a flourishing market of homes, apartments and other types of Real Estate.   There’s a nice array of jobs along the “50 corridor” from El Dorado Hills, Folsom and Rancho Cordova… from Hi-tech start ups, Intel and the Rocket Ship factory over at Areojet.   We need more private sector jobs to keep the momentum growing.

While I know the market in Single Family homes and Apartments has been good of late, there’s some mixed news about Office space.   This does affect housing.

Take a look at this article I got from the Sacarmento Business Journal today.

Sacramento office market tight for big users

Let me know what you think.


In the Mean Time…?

Make it a Great Day..!

A Bank Owned & a Short Sale Duplex – Cash Flow for the Investor..!

Both are in “improving areas”, one in Citrus Heights and one in Rancho Corodva.

The Citrus Heights Bank Owned Duplex

Ok…  Let’s start with the Bank Owned Duplex in Citrus Heights that is located at 7700 – 7702 Sayonara Drive. Each side is a 2 bedroom 1 bath unit with Fireplaces, Central Heat & Air,  Garages and Washer Dryer Hookups.   One side has had a Kitchen update.

I’m sure there will be multiple offers on this one because it’s not going to take much to get it “rent ready”.


The Rancho Cordova Short Sale Duplex

The “Short Sale” Duplex is located at 2597 & 2599 Capitales, Rancho Cordova.   Each side on this one is a 3 bedroom 2 bath that includes Central Heat & Air, Fireplaces, Washer Dryer Hook ups, Garages.   One of the units has Kitchen and Bath updates and the other side has a tenant that has lived there for 22 years.

If you commute to Sacramento, the Light Rail Station is about a half mile away.

I’ve been working sales of Duplexes for a long time and this street has one big problem.   While these duplexes are for the most part all 3 bedrooms on each side they lack sufficient parking because almost everyone has at least 2 cars.  As you will see in the flyer one car is on the grass.   The solution is to “increase the size” of the Driveway.   Take a look at the video I made of the street and see if you don’t agree that you can make lemonade out of a lemon.

The cash flow figures are going to be pretty much the same as the Citrus Heights duplex that I profiled above.   On this Duplex though,  we do have two loans that will probably take a little longer to complete the short sale.

I just put this Duplex on the MLS last week and we have two offers on it, so we’ll see how it goes from here.


If you are a first time visitor to this Blog Site and are looking for an investment property don’t forget to check out the Free List Page and then send me a note if you’d like to have me analyze it’s potential cash flow.   If you send me an email request,  I’d be happy to send to you an Excel file that you can use over and over to calculate potential cash flow for property that you are considering.

Make it a Great Day…!
