Napa Valley is not all wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants and art galleries.  Most of the usable land in Napa Valley is zoned for agriculture and used – not surprisingly – to grow grapes, olives, mustard, culinary herbs, and other agricultural products.  The unique climate and mix of soils make this area one of the most prized agricultural regions in the world. Here are listings for Napa Valley agricultural land for sale as of December 19, 2011.  Drop me a line for more information (john@jsrealproperty.com ) and to schedule a viewing of these and other properties for sale in Napa County.   Please note:  Purchase or lease of land for agricultural use requires exhaustive testing and evaluation that should be conducted by qualified professionals prior to completion of the sale.  Past pro...

Small multi-family properties are often the easiest, most cost-efficient way to get started as a residential real estate investor.  These properties typically have 2 to 4 units, providing the opportunity for the owner to live on-site or to rent every unit.  Many successful residential investors got their start buying small unit properties and trading up to consolidate equity and improve cash flow. Here are small multi-family investment properties for sale in Napa County, CA as of December 16, 2011.  Drop me a line (john@jsrealproperty.com) for more information and to schedule a viewing.     Please visit www.jsrealproperty.com and click on: ·         Wine Country MLS Searchto search the local MLS for properties of all types in Napa, Sonoma, Solano, Marin and Mendocino Counties.   ·      ...

While many are braving the frantic crush of humanity in shops and malls to complete their Christmas shopping, the California real estate market continues to roll along almost unnoticed.  It’s always been said that the holidays are a bad time to try to buy or sell a home.  But as I drove through Napa Valley today looking at new homes and land just on the market, I considered the numbers I saw on the MLS this morning regarding this area: ·         14 homes have closed escrow since Thanksgiving Day ·         45 homes have come on the market in the past 10 days (14 REO’s) There are 12 new homes on the market just since yesterday.  How many of these will sell by the end of the year?  No way to tell, but I’ll be sharing those numbers soon after the New Year. Until then, if you are considering...

It’s crunch time. If you’ve met with your financial advisor and confirmed that you have cash to invest in real estate and there is a financial/tax advantage to do so before the end of 2011, there’s still time.  But don’t delay.  Here are reasons you must get started now – ·         Escrow companies and companies that administrate tax-free exchanges (“accommodators”) are often flooded with year-end deals, increasing processing times   ·         There are other guys like you also in the market hunting for last minute bargains from people who are trying to sell by year-end   ·         Government entities who process and record deeds take a lot of time off during the holidays, increasing the lead time needed to record the sale Contact me TODAY to start your start looking at properties that ...
