Choosing a Neighborhood

image195

 Although it may appear there a quite a few properties in Sacramento that are available. The problem is that many of the properties simply do not make sense financially.   We can help guide you towards the perfect blend of quality of neighborhood verses cash flow.  This is a very important step because at a certain price point in the market the prices start to esculate quickly while rents barely increase. This is the point of diminishing returns.  Through our local market expertise we can effectively help you achieve the perfect blend of quality verses cash flow according to your comfort level.



* This is best achieved by touring Sacramento together. We can set up a half day tour of the Sacramento area.
By the end of the tour we will be on the same page about the quality of neighborhood  you are comfortable with and this will make finding your property dramatically easier.  To better understand this concept I rate neighborhoods by the relationship between cash flow and price. This can better be illustrated by using the a visual of the old game Monopoly. game board.

Neighborhoods

Neighborhood Ratings

  In Zip Codes on my scale between 3-5 there is the best blend between affordable price and cash flow.  The higher on this subjective scale you go the better the neighborhood is but cash flow is generally reduced exponentially in neighborhoods above a 5 on my scale.  Neighborhoods below 3 on my scale may have higher crime rates and a greater chance of vandalism.

You may decide to focus on neighborhoods higher or lower on this scale. There is no one single right answer.   * DO NOT ASK US ABOUT Race, Religion, or National Original we cannot legally discuss these topics with you and our neighborhood ratings are based on Cash Flow. We are an Equal Opportunity Brokerage and will not discriminate in the representation of buyers or sellers.

Rent Analysis

Rentometer Pro Analysis

The rents are one of the most import variables to consider in buying an

investment property. If they are too low it is difficult to make a profit

with the investment. If the rents are too high you will have a high turnover 

rate. If you are making a purchase decision based on the rent numbers we

want to make sure you can duplicate the current rents with a new tenant if the

existing tenant moves out. To help you with this analysis we will provide a free rent 

analysis to let you see how the current rents compare with the fair market rents

in the area. This will also help identify properties with upside potential.
