Are you crazy to be buying a house in Solano County California?

Are you crazy to be buying a house in Solano County California?

So you want to buy a house  in Solano County California and people are telling you that you are crazy.

The market is depressed and it will only get worse, right?

Sure, and then it will get better.  If you know the exact minute that the market will hit bottom and can predict the exact minute it is going to take off again, then wait!

Otherwise , this is probably a pretty good time to buy.


If you are buying a home that you are going to live in and your job is not   secure or you think you might be transferred in the near future , maybe it’s not the right thing for you.


But if you are paying rent here and you are planning on staying and don’t expect to lose your job any time soon,  it’s a great idea.

If you are reading this, you probably already are looking.


Let me tell you why I think this is really the best time ever to buy.

I am hopefully talking to those of you who want  to live in the home you are buying and/ or investors.


Many people in Solano county are buying foreclosures, fixing them up and “flipping “ them.

If you are looking for a turn-key property that you can move right into or rent out , then there is a good inventory to choose from.


That does not mean that you can look at a home today and sleep on it for a week and then maybe make an offer.


When a good home comes on the market, it does not last long.

The bad ones do not last long either for that matter!

As I write my blog, I will be including links to videos.

Here is the beginning of a 13 part series regarding how to buy a house.

It is mostly geared toward first-time owner occupants, but even and old pro can probably learn, or be reminded of important facts.


Finally, I want to mention that there are some awesome deals out there for people with cash.

You do have to look closely and constantly.

For instance, I just found a duplex that is listed for  less than $130,000. There is a $12,000 item that must be fixed, but if you are paying cash, who cares, it just means that you are spending $142,000 for something you can probably rent out for $1800.


If you are looking for real estate in Solano County, please let me know how I can help you.

If we have to look at 40 houses and  write offers on a dozen before we get you what you want, that is what I do and I would love to do it for you!
