If the seller was still occupying the property (even after he 6 days) they may have "rights". If they had moved out and all their items were removed, they may not have any right and be trespassing. If they moved but left belongings, they may have a right to be there. There are variables, so you may want to check with the lawyer that drew up the rent back agreement. ... more

Everything is based on supply and demand, if prices are holding steady in a particular zip code it's because the supply is lower in the demand is higher.

I've been in the business for 23 years, these areas change all the time, Folsom is also a very hot area, but only in the last couple years. ... more

I have been asked this question a lot. The variables mentioned below change slightly from one part of the Sacramento region to the next, but the result has been similar throughout, especially when comparing Granite Bay to Folsom and El Dorado Hills.

I believe in the long term investment value of these areas. If I can help with any other questions, please let me know!

You should expect anywhere from $.90 to a little over $1 per sq ft depending on the size of the home and the amenities. A small home will likely rent for $1 per sq ft or more. Larger homes will be more expensive, but at a lower sq ft rate.

Hello Built,

Unfortunately, the your posted question did not reference the property that you were asking about.
That is why there were no specific answers.

If you can come back and identify the gated community: i.e. Los Lagos, Wexford, Winchester, Clos du Lac, or one of about a dozen others in Granite Bay, then you'll get an answer that is more specific to your question. ... more

Must get a home inspection. Then try to contact (or goggle) the local government (City or County) to discover property facts - who supplies utility services, any easement on property, zoning requirements, etc. The local planning department should have basic facts and figures for the neighborhood. ... more

I agree that if its that important to you to be in one city over another and you're now unhappy with the home and location, then perhaps consult a real estate attorney to find out what your options are. It appears that you may be looking in Granite Bay and if that's the case, its possible that when this home was built it was considered Roseville. What year was the home built that you are in contract on? If you want to contact me, I'd be happy to look it up for you and give you more information that may be helpful to you. All the best to you. ... more

I won't get too analytical here but I would suggest, as others have, that you start with a good lender so you know what you can qualify for. The best advice I will give you from there is to ensure you have liquid assets available after you close escrow. I've owned my own brokerage business for over 30 years as well as a property management business and a broker/dealer. Do not over leverage yourself and be sure to have money available for repairs, some of which can be expensive, as well as periods of vacancy. Do not buy the cheapest home you can find in a worn out neighborhood just because of the price. If you want to maximize your capital gain, go where people are eager to own...not rent. Good luck.

Hello Audrey: A staged home looks better than a vacant property. You should connect with a Realtor who can give you sound advice and guidance on your current and future home. Make sure you are potentially comfortable with two mortgage payments and the additional expenses. Now is a great time to buy! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hi Ed,

Have you already identified the TIC you are interested in buying in to? Given the timelines of a 1031 Exchange, I would highly recommend doing lot of research if you have not already and figure out which TIC you want, and what the benefits of buying that particular TIC will be to you. That would be first...

Second, if you want to do a 1031 Exchange - definitely speak with your CPA regarding what will need to happen in your specific situation.

Third, if you are going to use an agent to sell your home, make sure he/she is clear on your goals. They can assist you to determine the market value of your property and what market trends are for your particular area in Granite Bay (full of micro markets there) your property on a part of Fallbrook close to Auburn-Folsom Rd? It may make sense to unload it now or sell later...need more pieces to the puzzle. A lot will depend on your personal goals, the micro market you are in, the value of your property, and the sale-ability of your property.
