  The Police Busted The Door, Can You Fix It?  I got an early morning call from a property maintenance employee, it seems the police were involved with the ramming of an apartment door to make an arrest. The slamming of the door caused serious damage. The damaged entry door was beyond repair, the steel door could no longer latch and was split to the core.Fortunately, a new door can be installed to match. This will just take a few days to get the new door. We will have to figure out a way to secure the opening until then.

For the first time in ages, I had a buyer ask me yesterday how much his monthly payment would be if he bought my listing. He kinda threw me off guard because I wasn't expecting it. Generally, by the time a buyer calls, he or she has already spoken to a mortgage broker and received a preapproval letter. But this is California, after all. This is the land where buyers hop in the car to drive 2 blocks to the grocery store, spot a For Sale sign, and decide on the spur of the moment to buy a house. If this describes you, here is the perfect home for you. First, it's affordable. Second, it's not a short sale. It's not an REO, either. Third, it's newer, if you can call 1991 construction newer, and I think you can in a neighborhood made up of 80-year-old homes. It's all in your perspective. Thi...

After listing yesterday the following 8-unit apartment complex in North Oak Park, a buyer called me out of the blue. Apparently, he had been shopping for a home in the Curtis Park / Land Park neighborhoods for a while without hiring an agent. A former Land Park buyer referred him to me. He asked if I could show him a home in Curtis Park within the hour. Sure, I'll do that for a referral client. After walking through the home with his wife, the buyer announced they would like to write an offer. The wife laughed, "I bet this is the easiest offer you've ever written." Well, no offers are really easy these days. But to tell her the truth, it was not the easiest offer this week. The easiest offer was for two other buyers for a home in East Sacramento. Because at least I got to see the home i...

In the City of Sacramento Oak Park has always been known for "The place you don't want property".  With this current market you can become the "King of Oak Park" if you invest right.  Homes are available in the area for prices in the range of $35,000-$65,000.  Finding tenants for these properties can be difficult but not impossible.   If you would like any suggestions on properties in the area to buy or need a property manager, feel free to give me a call.   Sidney Poritz sporitz@homepointe.com 916-429-1205 ext. 800

People call me on a daily basis asking me about Oak Park properties and they are interested in renting their homes.  Oak Park is a neighborhood right outside Land Park and Tahoe Park in Sacramento, CA.  In this area you have some great old homes with character and big backyards unlike newly developed areas.  You have a great downtown district which could become a nice place to have farmers markets or even a small festival.   Now the real problems with the area.  Crime is at an all time high, people are breaking into house which are abandanded, and tenants continue to vandalize homes.  Owners don't feel safe renting to anybody who wants to live in the area.  Walking down the streets you fear for your life or even for the safety of your children.   Will Oak Park ever recover?  Can Kevin J...
