I've been doing renovation loan and construction consulting since 1994 and found it to be a very rewarding experience and we move a whole lot of homes that wouldn't have been moved in any other way. Daily I hear Realtors say they have never done one after thirty years in the business, others have been told by someone years ago that you should stay away from renovation projects. I love this one because in some cases they told you that so you wouldn't poach in their territory. Beware of those who might tell you to stay away from the FHA 203k and be sure it isn't because the want it all to themselves.  1) You have a home that your buyer wants that is dated, very dated. There appears to be no updating but gee, it is a nice home otherwise. In my opinion you would be doing a disservice to the...

  I See The Hanging Light, But What About All That Rotted Wood?     Proper lighting around the exterior of an apartment or home is very important. I got a call to take a look at the lighting near the garbage dumpster of an apartment community; the light was falling off. In looking at an exterior light that was coming down near a garbage dumpster, I couldn’t help but notice that the wood was severely rotted. The rot had been going on for quite some time with no repairs made to correct the problem. Sure I could probably get the light to function correctly but the dry rotted wood should also be addressed. Clearly there have been at least two large pieces that have come down with a few more that were unsafe. I think it may be a good idea to either fix the wood members by replacing them, or ...

  Sure I’ll Repair Your Citrus Heights Fence; Where Is It?     As a general contractor in the Sacramento, CA area, I get calls for the repair and replacement of wood fencing. On a recent home visit, I had difficulty even see where the existing fence was located. The wood fence is buried deep within the overgrown landscaping of this backyard. Impossible? No, but we will likely have to get permission to come in from the back side neighbors home. The two are sharing the cost, is I hope this works out.  J       View Larger Map

As real estate agents who work with sellers and buyers in the real estate industry, we often have to deal with death, whether we want to or not. It comes with the territory. There are buyers who die in the middle of escrow, especially if they're waiting for a short sale. And there are buyers who just feel like they have died in the middle of waiting for a short sale. There are sellers of homes who have inherited them from relatives who have passed away. The homes are filled with memories, and it's not always easy parting with them. It's like selling a part of your soul, to some people, like cutting off a leg. I had to sell a home last year for a guy whose wife died in her bed and wasn't discovered for 3 days. Even though this couple was divorced, it was still painful for the seller to d...

  This Citrus Heights Apartment tub has had a slow leak for years, it finally made itself known.   “I have a leaking tub in the upstairs unit, and water is pouring into the downstairs bathroom”   This is the frantic call that I received on Monday morning that changed my schedule for the day. Being a fixer of water related damages, I headed over to go to work. The maintenance staff  had opened the ceiling in a few places to get a look at the source of the water before calling me. That always helps; I can get a feel for what I am up against before arriving. Sometimes they can help with some qualified instruction. This Citrus Heights Apartment tub drain leak had been happening for some time, the staining and discoloration was pretty wide on the backside of the drywall. Often times a slow l...

Citrus Heights Short Sale / 5450 Ventana Place. / Short Sale Specialist Our latest closed Citrus Heights Short Sale is 5450 Ventana Place. This FHA Short Sale wasn’t as troublesome as most that we have come across. However, because the owner was leaving the area and FHA guidelines state that the property has to be owner occupied, it did tamper with our approval time. But we were able to overcome that and submit an extra clean file with a bonified hardship. With hard work and staying focus we were able to close in just 30 days. It was a relief to say the least. If this sounded like the perfect Citrus Heights home or investment property for you don’t worry we have others. Check out what’s available in the below home search.

    I happened upon a cute little park in the Citrus Heights, Sacramento area the other day. The cozy park is only 7.5 acres but it rests within a quiet community. It offers and playground assembly for the younger children, as well as a basketball court and multipurpose field for those a bit older.   Van Maren Park is a part of the Sunrise Parks and Recreation District.   Van Maren Park 6601 Thalia Way Citrus Heights, CA 95621-5593   See Van Maren Park on Facebook         View Larger Map

Citrus Heights Short Sale / 7996 Copperwood Dr. / Short Sale Specialist Our latest approved Citrus Heights Short Sale is 7996 Copperwood Dr. This Golden One Credit Union serviced Citrus heights short sale was not as troublesome as most of have been in our past. Expecting to have a difficult time getting approval we went in with our heads held high, shoulders back, and was not going to take no for an answer. We submitted a very clean short sale package with a verifiable hardship and were able to seek approval in 32 days. We closed in a matter of 45 days which is longer than expected due to the tenants taking a while to vacate. But to make up for it we did save our clients $290,000 in debt. So all in all, we got the job done and done right! If this sounded like the perfect Citrus Heights ...

  Will Your Stairs Pass a Building Inspection?     I don’t know why it is, but it seems that many of the stairs in the Sacramento apartment communities do not meet the current building code. What really gets me is that many of the building code violations were a part of the original construction. By that, I mean that the stairs never did meet the building code. Take these stairs for example; these are the original stairs at an apartment in Sacramento, CA. The concrete is not new, it was poured way back when the community was built. There were several stairways that matched this one on the property. This is a building code violation that can be very dangerous to those who use it.  I’m not real sure how this is possible.     View Larger Map

  Kitchen Base Cabinet Water Damage in Sacramento – Are You Hiding Something?   In Sacramento, the most damaged kitchen cabinet in most homes and apartments is the kitchen base cabinet under the sink. This is due to many reasons: The cabinet doors get a lot of use, standing in front of the cabinets, they get bumped, and the cabinet is close to moisture. This last one, moisture, is probably the cause of most of the damage. Of course, the kitchen cabinet base can be replaced; or if not too damaged, the base cabinet can be repaired. There are many options in Sacramento to resolve the problem but perhaps some prevention is good also. One source of water damage comes from the sink; water splashing and running over the ridge can damage the doors and face of the cabinet. This can be remedied b...

Citrus Heights Short Sale / 5607 Gitta Ria Ct  / Short Sale Specialist Our latest Closed Citrus Heights Short Sale is 5607 Gitta Rita Ct. With a Bank of America first mortgage only, this should have been a slam dunk. The one thing you can always count on at Bank of America is inconsistent change. We certainly had our fair share in this transaction but once we received approval we were able to close just 10 days after and got our client $5,000 in relocation assistance.

Citrus Heights Short Sale / 6826 Blowing Wind Way/ Short Sale Specialist Our latest approved Citrus Heights Short Sale is 6829 Blowing Wind Way. This Bank of America serviced FHA loan was problematic to say the least. Although our sellers had a legitimate hardship, multiple escalations were required. We received approval to participate from FHA in 45 days but it then took Bank of America another 3 months to approve the offer (If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m not a fan of theirs). This Citrus Heights Short Sale goes to show that no matter how stressful dealing with a bank may be, keeping your cool and staying determined always has a successful outcome.
