Asked by Mark, San Francisco, CA Tue Jun 10, 2008

retired couple that is walking distance to stores and is not a getto. I noticed there are several listing for around 100k, but I assume that is a trashy area, but I may be wrong. I worked my way through college doing real estate maintenance so I don't mind a fixer. Any advice?

100k??? I'm with George, Tracy is not the answer there. Now Manteca, Stockton, or even Modesto would be.

Great that you're thinking ahead for your parents! 100k hmmm in Tracy that would not surprise me to be a low price that is meant to drive visitors to see the "under valued" home and bid the price up...a common practice today. I am not versed in Tracy real estate, and don't think that that is a realistic selling price but rather a low asking price. Look around. Stockton and Manteca would offer better values and not far from Tracy. Manteca would be closer and probably better, neighborhood to neighborhood.

Fixers are difficult as "As is" sales require work to be completed prior to purchase and that can be a deal breaker. If I can be of assistance give me a call. Check out our website!

The best thing to do is to look around and find that perfect area. Many times Realtors are interested in pointing out what they think is perfect. In reality perfect is relative to you and you parents - You may want to go one step forward and take your parents for a drive and don't forget to make it a day. Then contact a qualified Realtor to shown you homes in that area.

I have an impeccable house in the Edgwood Community on Short Sale - which will not take very long to close. View it on Metrolist.
Address 2005 Calaveras Court, Tracy, CA ($265,000) - Its a steal! Check with your agent or just drop by on your own. MLS # 80075326. Good luck!
