That depends on what you are looking for. Acacia St is located in an older neighborhood of Tracy, but it is walking distance from Tracy High School as well as Lincoln Park.

Beaconfield Ct is closer to grocery stores, the mall, and other local shopping areas. It also provides easy access to 205.

If you'd like more information about the neighborhood, please visit my website and click on the Market Insider tab. I hope this helps!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

While it is a first for this reader to hear such a petition, it is a well taken contention. However, there is much too much information and loose ends both in the day to day processes used in the real estate industry, and now via the Internet, that accomplishing a complete removal of information about any particular house my be very limited. This is akin to seeking a credit reporting agency to clean up erronous data on your otherwise good credit report. It may be achievable, but as soon as you think all is well, something else can and sometimes pops up. Try this, and you'll see what I'm alluding to: type your property address on the search bar on your Internet browser and watch what happens. If your house is like the hundreds, if not thousands of legitimate addresses out in "ciberland," it will produce results. As for your valid safety concerns, you'll be hardpressed to achieve a complete elimination of any potential risks, not the least of which is the exposure of the photo that was once used for selling your property. Good luck! ... more

Hi Lynn,

As everyone else has stated, this has been an ongoing question now for months. Our office just added several REO accounts. What that means is we will be getting more bank owned listings.We currently have 103 active/coming soon properties.
But, the new wave we expect to see are Short Sales. Banks are tired of waiting for homeowners to vacate their home after months of no payments. And, many homeowners damage property as they leave. A Short Sale is a win-win sale for everyone. Bank sells home for current market value, with no damage and further decline in value. Seller walks away with Short Sale, which is far less damaging to their credit than foreclosure, enabling them to buy a home sooner in the future. And, we'll see a shortened Short Sale more 5-8 month approval periods. More like 45-60 days. And, many banks are actually telling homeowner what to list home at even before they have an offer. Whole new world of Short Sales!!

Hi Pete,

Buying an investment property right now is a great idea. Based on current prices and rental needs all of your choices are good. There are several newer homes, built within the last 10 years, that you can actually buy and end up with a positive cash flow. An example is buying a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1200 sq. ft. home in Tracy priced at $180k with 20% down gives you a payment of Approx. $850 w/tax and insurance. You can turn around and rent it for $1100-$1200.
Nice ROI!

This price is too low for 5 bedrooms. How's condition of the house? Hardwoord floors? Newly renovated? Good school district? Please keep in mind rent could be around $1900 if those things are part of the package. ... more

Where is your new job location? If you are looking to rent in Tracy, there are a few areas which you may want to consider.

Corral Hollow and Eleventh Street is a busy intersection with all your grocery shopping needs. Safeway, Starbucks, Long's Drugs are all around the area. It is only a few minutes drive to the hospital and Costco as well as Walmart.

Another area is called Hidden Lake. Houses in this neighborhood are built around a man made lake and the pride of ownership is high in that area. Homes are well maintained and the area is more secluded.

If you have children, you may want to consider the area around the Ace Train Station (around Tracy Blvd and Linne Rd). This area belongs to the Jefferson School District. You can check out the ratings, they score fairly high.

At last, there is the Redbridge community. Homes here are built by Standard Pacific Homes and this is a nice little community. For more info, please visit

If your job is located more towards the bay area, you may also want to consider Mountain House. Mountain House has great schools, lots of parks and a dry creek as well as homes which are generally newer. Check it out here:

You should have a pretty good selection of rentals as investors are now snatching up bank owned properties in the Tracy and Mountain House area. Good luck.

The following website will allow you to input your address and see what rents are for the neighborhood.

I purchased a home in November and had a signed leased before all the renovations were done. On the other side I have a friend that has 2 condos for rent that she has not been able to fill for the last two months. ... more

Steve Roesch answered:
A lot of foreclosures in Tracy that are 100k or less, typically are not financeable. They are land, and a structure. No kitchens, no furnace, no water heater, sledgehammers to porcelain sinks or toilets, no electrical panel, etc... Usually, its just a few of these items missing. Sometimes it's all of the above.

Buying a foreclosure can be rewarding. But be prepared, if you don't have the cash/capital, time, dedication or skill set to sub out the work to the proper trustworthy contractors... It will be the worst investment on your books.

I know the question was asked in Nov 08, but it is always hard to predict the future. But the answers from 11/08 were based off the perceptions from the condition of the market at that time.

Today, almost May 09, things are a little different. Prices seem more stable, more buyers, inventory is smaller. But the biggest change is what the locals are experiencing. Multiple offers, bidding wars, and more than asking price.

Something about Californians and their need to compete. Unbelievable. But there typically, isn't price degradation when multiple offers are on many new listings.

Actually the sales price - the price the home SOLD for has been running 108% of the list price. Homes are selling rapidly when in good condition and priced correctly. The market is dominated by short sales and REO - bank owned properties, and homes are being priced very competitively which results in mulitple offers and over asking results.
I hope that helps - I'd be happy to send you an update on a certain neighborhood if you'd like

The Medford Team answered:

I'd call the various property managers in Tracy and ask them to identify the type of home that they have the best luck in renting. They can identify the “sweet spot❠for you very quickly. It is usually a 3/2 in the 1,500 sq, ft. range close to the better schools. They can also give you the going market rates for the various levels of properties.

You can also do some research on Craigslist to identify rental ranges. As you know, you want the smallest mortgage payment possible and the highest rental income. As Tyler mentioned, newer homes are easier to maintain in the initial years. However, many of the newer homes also come with HOAs. If I was looking, I’d be searching for homes built in the 70-80’s in decent neighborhoods and in good condition. Take a contractor with you to help identify potential issues.

What are your chances of getting a good home that pencils for you? Very good.

If you need someone who is both a Realtor and a general contractor who services the area, contact us.
