It is important for a property owner to be aware of what the real estate market is going through now so that they can make informed and sound decisions
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
Bay Area property management company, Stokley Properties Inc. works closely with the real estate community to help their clients make the decision of whether to turn a home into a rental income-producing property. Currently, Stokely Properties is noticing a boost in the Bay Area Rental Homes Market due to lackluster home sales.
“It is important for a property owner to be aware of what the real estate market is going through now so that they can make informed and sound decisions,” Joseph Stokley Jr. of Stokley Properties Inc. said
Homeowners who chose not to sell their properties at depressed prices are deciding to wait it out and turn their homes into rental properties.
“We are seeing this happening more every month. The property owners are taking advantage of a very strong rental market as well,” reported The Contra Costa Times in Oct. 20.
Rents are also climbing sharply in the East Bay as people who were once homeowners look for places to rent after losing their homes to foreclosure or not making their mortgage payments.
Contra Costa County has seen a 7 percent increase since last year and Alameda County has seen an 8.7 percent increase in rents.
