Are you working with a Realtor as your exclusive representative? Your Realtor should be advising you about negotiating your specific purchase agreement with the seller.
Setting future rents, after you become the landlord, wouldn't generally be part of a purchase agreement. Consider what it is that you want to accomplish and consult with your agent, your broker, and your attorney about your specific transaction. ... more

Do you need to live there before you sell it? No.

Are you looking to sell your current investment property and buy another investment property? If so, look up 1031 exchange and talk to a 1031 exchange company BEFORE you sell.

If you are thinking of selling it and buying a home that you will live in, talk to your tax professional about repercussions.

What are you trying to accomplish? Are you trying to keep the home or trying to sell it? Do you currently owe more than the home is worth?

Jason Walter answered:
Do you own the property or are you thinking about buying it? A house with only one bathroom and no garage will decrease the desirability of the home as a rental or as a home for sale.


95817 is obviously close to the Med Center and downtown but some people don't like the close proximity to Oak Park.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions or if you would like specific market trends/data for any zip code.

I don't think so because of the loss of value with this type of "home". Build less and do it better. It will be worth more in the long term.

Jim Walker answered:
Did it slow down? Bacbinh prediction was correct for # of closed sales that month. Only 144 in Elk Grove that month of November 2013. Those numbers stayed low through the winter. But, just as so many agents predicted, it picked up in the spring. The important numbers for Binh, as a buyer, was not closed or pending sales, but inventory, average price, and average price per square foot.

The inventory climbed steadily to the end of this summer from 279 listed in December 2013 to 425 listed in August.

Average price steadied at $317,000 until April 2014 then it climbed to $331,000 that month to $347,000 at the end of August. A $30,000 increase in the average. Price per square foot ticked up from $149 in December 2013 to $164 per square foot in August. So if Binh waited until early in 2014 he suffered no harm, but if he waited past the end of winter, he shot himself in the foot. (The square foot)

Staying under $250K: smaller homes Foothill Farms, Arden Manor, some parts of 95821 and 95825, Smaller homes in south Natomas & Rio Linda.

Mid-size homes in North Highlands, North Sac and Del Paso Heights.

You are simply priced out of Carmichael, Fair Oaks, Roseville, Rocklin and many other popular and desirable areas.

I advise against condominiums for investors, condos are okay for owner occupants wanting apartment lifestyle while owning the unit.

There are several zip codes that will work, it probably comes down to how close you want to be to your rental and what kind of deal you can get when you buy it, if it has positive cash flow, etc. Let me know if I can help find a property for you. ... more
