No, I don't want to work with him...Short Sale Drama My partner and one of his clients are good friends. The client told me that she feels she can tell him anything, and she has. This makes for a good working relationship. She asked me if he had told me anything, and of course, I said no. I value client confidentiality. In his business, my partner advertises on a number of Spanish television radio and TV stations. That costs a lot of deniro. He is primarily involved in the mortgage end, but offering real estate transactions to support the business. He has a few agents that work with him, receiving the clients on a silver platter. They should be grateful for all this support. But sometimes..... In this particular case, the client needs to short sale her home. She trusts my partner. But h...

Vallejo is a great buying opportunity (which means more Vallejo rental homes) According to a new report by Inman, Vallejo ranks 5 in the United States in cities with the largest drop in home prices over a 5 year period.  This translates into a great buying opportunity, which, in turn translates into more rental homes available in Vallejo.    You can read the article here: Inman   Vallejo is actually a great place to live with an optimal location on the edge of the San Francisco Bay area and at the gateway to the Central Valley and on the way to the Sierra Nevada mountains.   If you’re interested in taking advantage of this buying opportunity, you can call us and we can refer you to an agent (outside of Delgado Property Management) who can help you with the buying.  We would be happy to ...

Buried Treasures? Vallejo Antiques Evaluation Day is set for 9-10-11 at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum 734 Marin St in Vallejo.  The evaluations will considered during the times of 10am-3pm. Recently I have become addicted to the show Buried Treasures on Fox with the famous identical twin Keno Brothers. These two travel the country finding treasures that families have kept for years and years.  I, like many others out there, eagerly wait to see what they find. Who knows, I may have that same item in my antique stash collected from my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.  This event is lots of fun!  I went last year and lugged an end table and a favorite bowl.  Read what they valued it for at My Benicia Antiques are Worth What? So mark your calendar for this coming Satu...

Why we require Renters Insurance in our Benicia and Vallejo rental homes Yes, we do require all renters to obtain renters insurance as a lease requirement and as a pre-condition to getting keys to the rental home.  We do this for all of our Benicia and Vallejo rental homes. We sometimes get asked "why" so I will briefly answer this by explaning some of the things that renters insurance typically covers.  Basically speaking, renters insurance covers two categories- contents and liability. Coverage for contents means insurance for your own belongings.  This applies in case of theft, or in the event of mini-disaster like backing up a running toilet or leave a sink or bath running and water damage occurs.  Your own personnal belongs from books to furniture to that new flat screen TV would b...

I was browsing through Zillow questions recently and I found a question from a home owner as to where they can get lease forms to rent out their home. A prior response to the question said that they could buy forms at a local office supply Store!  NOOOOOOOOO!!!! PLEASE, for your own sake, do NOT use lease forms purchased at an office supply store as the basis for your contract between you and the resident that will be living in your rental home. Think of the lease agreement as a contract that is a document to protect your legal rights as well as your property.  Remember, "we're all friends until something goes wrong."  That lease document is your first stop in determing "who is responsible for what" and then enforcing your rights. Consider- *Tenant laws change frequently *Laws vary from...

I've found that prorated rental caclulations can confuse many otherwise very intelligent people. Confusion is never a good thing, so follow the easy step by step instructions below and you will be on your way to confidence.  1.  Always figure on a 30 day month. In California, it is standard to calculate prorates based on a 30 day month.  So, even if it's February with only 28 days or its August with 31 days, we will use 30 days as the basis for the prorate calculation. 2.  Divide your montly rent by 30.  If your monthly rent is $1,500 then dividing $1,500 by 30 works out to a daily rate of $50. 3.  Figure out how many days in the partial month you will be living in the home.  Say you are moving in on the 15th of June.  You will have the home for 16 days that month. (30 - 14).  Remember ...
