Some Rules of Real Estate Investing

2 3865 Jpg Scaled If You Are Looking For A Pathway To Passive Real Estate Investing, Give Sun Pacific Mortgage A Call. We Offer Trust Deeds In Well Vetted Properties In California And Hawaii. As Little As $100,000 Can Have Your Earning Interest As High As 12% Or Higher.

Real estate is the only investment where you can actually borrow other people’s money to purchase and own an income producing property.  As long as you have positive cash flow overall in your portfolio, you can buy as much income property as you can.  Leverage is a very powerful concept and real estate is probably the best place to leverage your investment capital because it’s a hard asset while fulfilling a need called housing. The following are some hard-earned rules presented by Marco Santerelli of Norada Real Estate, that we felt were informative enough to share:

  • Be informed regarding the market. There is a lot of truth in the saying, “The more you learn, the more you earn.”
  • Set investment goals, not wishes. You are far more likely to achieve financial independence if you write down clear, specific, and detailed goals than not doing anything at all.
  • Never speculate. Always invest with a long-term perspective in mind.
  • Don’t chase appreciation. It will happen in the right market and the right neighborhood because real estate is a hard asset made up of commodities and over time it will appreciate because of inflation.
  • Keep in mind that the equity growth in the property will always far surpass the cash flow.
  • Don’t be married to any particular market. Each and every market is local and will move up and down completely independently of one another due to various local factors.
  • Always first choose the market, the city, the town that you want to focus on based on the health of that market and the local economy.
  • It [can be] wise to have a management company handle your real estate investments. It can be a tough, full-time job and your time is more valuable and should be spent on things more important to you.

If you are looking for a pathway to passive real estate investing, give Sun Pacific Mortgage a call. We offer trust deeds in well vetted properties in California and Hawaii. As little as $100,000 can have your earning interest as high as 12% or higher.

Sonoma County Real Estate Trends – End of 2nd Quarter 2023

Surprisingly Enough, Median Home Sales Prices Have Been Climbing - Especially Over The Past Couple Months Of Quarter 2. They Are Presently Only A Little Below The Peak Prices Hit In The Spring Of 2022.

Surprisingly enough, median home sales prices have been climbing – especially over the past couple months of Quarter 2. They are presently only a little below the peak prices hit in the spring of 2022.

The number of new listings remains the lowest in 20 years, a victim of the “mortgage lock-in” effect. With many homeowners enjoying rates below 3%, they are not looking to sell their homes only to buy property with double the mortgage rate.

The average number of days a property stays on the market is the lowest we have seen in 20 years – a phenomenon expected with so few homes available on the market.

With so few homes available, homes have continued to sell above asking. With the lowest inventory available in years, finding a home has become  incredibly difficult for buyers.

The 3-month rolling average for a single-family residence in Sonoma County is $840,000. This number reflects the smallest year-over-year decline in the Bay Area.

From all the information we are getting from the experts, don’t expect the mortgage rates to decrease any time soon. In fact, most of the experts are forecasting a steady increase in the rates. For those buyers who are “waiting out” this rate tsunami, you might want to jump in before it gets even worse.

If you have tried and failed to obtain a mortgage for any reason, or need a faster home loan to beat out the other multiple offers, or don’t want to sell your current house prior to buying a new home, consider alternative financing with a privately funded loan. At Sun Pacific Mortgage we offer several programs to borrowers who need to purchase, refinance, or need bridge loans.  Give us a call at 707-523-2099 or find us at www.sunpacmortgage.com.

Home Prices in the San Francisco Have Begun to Rise Again

Shutterstock 1401527726.0 Jpg Housing And Financial Markets Have Always Run In Cycles, Both Economic And Psychological, But Ever Since The Days Of The Gold Rush The Bay Area Has Always Rebounded.Housing and financial markets have always run in cycles, both economic and psychological, but ever since the days of the Gold Rush the Bay Area has always rebounded.

Patrick Carlisle, chief market analyst at real estate firm Compass, stated that the Bay Area has seen four major booms over the last four decades each marked by a period of “irrational exuberance”, or skyrocketing prices with seemingly no end in sight, and then followed by a market correction.

April, May, and June are typically the busy season for real estate.  True to form, agents and economists have seen a slight uptick in the past couple of months as we recover from the slump over the last year that followed the huge boom in home prices during the pandemic.

There has been a definite uptick in buyer activity, open houses and offers. Savvy buyers are looking to lock in a lower price point for their home now since they can always refinance their mortgage rates later, a smart strategy of experienced buyers.

Some Bay Area counties are rebounding faster than others. Solano, Marin, Sonoma, and Napa counties each saw an increase in home values over the last month, while Santa Clara, San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, and Contra Costa saw a slight decline.

San Francisco has seen a larger decline than the surrounding counties due to the work-from-home trend of the pandemic. Downtown San Francico is the weakest market within the city, but it provides an opportunity to those who believe that it will ultimately rebound.

So, real estate remains a smart investment for homeowners and investors alike.  If you are looking to refinance or purchase and need faster financing or cannot qualify for a conventional loan, give Sun Pacific Mortgage a call at 707-523-2099, or reach out via our website.

The Sacramento Housing Market

Sacramentohousingmarket The Sacramento Housing Market Is Still Very Competitive. Homes In Sacramento Can Receive 4 Offers On Average And Sell In Around 10 Days. The Median Sale Price Of A Home In The Area Was $490,000 Last Month, Down 7.5% Since Last Year.The Sacramento housing market is still very competitive. Homes in Sacramento can receive 4 offers on average and sell in around 10 days. The median sale price of a home in the area was $490,000 last month, down 7.5% since last year.

Many homes are still getting multiple offers, some with waived contingencies. The average home sells for about 1% above list price while hot homes can sell for about 5% above list price and go pending in around 6 days.

The Sacramento housing market has been a topic of great interest for homeowners, real estate agents, and investors alike. As with most of California, Sacramento is currently a seller’s market. The market forecast indicates a projected increase of 0.8% in home values over the next year, suggesting a positive trend soon. The side benefit of the relatively affordable Sacramento real estate market and increasing demand is that any real estate investment there will see significant appreciation.

One of the reasons the Sacramento market is much healthier than other areas is due to its true income mix. It offers real estate investment investors more options than luxury homes and densely packed affordable units, the only types of housing you see built in San Francisco.

If you are interested in purchasing or refinancing a property in Sacramento, or anywhere in California or Hawaii for that matter, but do not qualify for a conventional loan or just need some fast & flexible financing, consider a private mortgage with Sun Pacific Mortgage. Over the past 35 years we have helped over 10,000 borrowers get financing when everyone else turned them down. You can reach us at 707-523-2099 or find us at www.sunpacificmortgage.com.

S.F. Peninsula Real Estate Report for May 2023

San Francisco Peninsula Housing Market

The housing market continues to surprise even the most knowledgeable experts. What was supposed to be a collapse of the market has turned out to be a thriving one, at least on the San Francisco Peninsula.

Looking at the data from last month, the sales price continues to outpace the list price and the average days a property stays on the market is unbelievably low.  Here’s a look at the average sales price and the average days the property stayed on the market:

Menlo Park: $3,598,962 3% above list 12 DOM

San Carlos: $2,463,000 5% above list 12 DOM

Foster City: $2,408,637 5% above list 11 DOM

San Mateo: $2,172,245 7% above list 10 DOM

Belmont: $2,299,655 3% above list 19 DOM

Burlingame: $2,994,550 1% above list 12 DOM

It appears that the housing market is still doing well in these cities by the bay!
