California Real Estate Investing

It would seem to most people that there would be few opportunities for California real estate investing.  
The state has one of the highest costs of living of all the states in the country.  While this increase in
cost of living keeps many Americans from moving out West, there are still some people who make the
state their permanent residence.  There is constantly an influx of people moving into the state of
California creating a constant demand for real estate.  This demand is what keeps California real estate
investing an opportunity for real estate investors.

For success in California real estate investing, investors much keep a consistent watch on the real
estate trends.  While there are some cities in the state that will always be popular, those cities that
present the biggest opportunity for investing are always changing.  Investors must pay close attention to
market trends in these cities.

In California real estate investing, there are some key factors to pay attention to.  One of these factors is
the average days on the market for homes.  This number lets investors know how long they can expect
for a home to stay on the market before it is sold.  If the number decreases over a period of time then
the market is speeding up and it is a good time to invest.  On the other hand if the average days on
hand is increasing, the market is slowing.  Investors that currently hold properties should sell to keep
from losing money in California real estate investing.  In the case that time on the market is increasing,
investors in California real estate might need to adjust the price of their homes to make sure they are
selling.

Sacramento and San Diego are two key markets that are slowing.  California real estate investing in
either of these markets is not advised.  Investors that already have these markets’ real estate in their
portfolio should divest the properties quickly.  The exception is if the properties are rentals rather than
homes for sale.  However, if the homes are intended to be sold, the best time to do so is now.  Waiting to
sell the properties could result in losses.

Condominiums are one type of property that never seem to lose steam in California.  In most cities, even
those that overall home sales are declining, purchase of condos are still on the rise.  The California real
estate investing market is safe for condos.

Oakland, San Francisco, and Riverside are a few cities that are safe for California real estate investing.  
Despite the decline in many other California cities, these continue to display signs of growth.  In the
past, California real estate has proven to be trendy.  Residents do not remain interested in one place for
an extended period of time.  While investors will be able to make a profit in these areas for the time
being, they should not expect for these markets to be profitable for long.

For the best opportunity for success in California real estate investing, investors should study the
markets for a period of time prior to making any transactions.
