Great Investment Opportunity in Winters, CA

It isn’t very often that you find one owner for both sides of the halfplexes located on E. Main Street. In Winters we have a fairly unique situation down on Caselli Court and Lauren Court and part of E. Main Street. The properties are built as a duplex with a common firewall in between them. Each half can be sold individually and many of them are. In this particular case I have owners who happen to own both halves and you can buy one side or both if you like. I have been the property manager for these two properties for many years and now the owners have decided to sell. Each side is currently rented. If you would like more information about this opportunity please give me call at 530-681-8939.

Short Sale Update Russell Street

Well, it has been about 3 weeks now since the Bank of America sent and appraiser out to look at the property and we haven’t heard a word since.  I actually called them last week to be sure they got it and didn’t lose the appraisal.    Strange things have happened like that in the past.    So here we sit and wait.  In the mean time the two halfs of the duplex are both vacant and my owner has no income there.  Should we fill them or leave them vacant for the new owner?  That is s tough one.  Just dont’ understand why it is taking so long for the bank to get back to us.  Shouldn’t be that hard to look at an appraisal and see whether or not you approve it.  I’ll keep you posted.

Bike Riding Through Winters

I found this article in the Outboud section of the Sacramento Bee yesterday and wanted to share it.  I actually had a friend stop by the office today and she had rescued a biker out on Pleasants Valley Rd who was having problems with his bike.  She loaded him into her truck and drove him into town to VeloCity to get the problem fixed.  I asked the gentleman, Craig, if he had seen yesterday’s article and he said, yes, that was why he was in town.  The last I saw him he was headed down to the Putah Creek Cafe for lunch.  Little did he know  John Pickerel was the guest on Kitty O’Neal’s Restaurant Talk today on KFBK 1530 at 3:30pm.  It was fun to listen to John, great job, don’t think I will cook tonight!

New listing on Main Street

Dave in my office has a great new listing on Main Street.   This house is located in the core area of town and has single siding like a Bungalow.  It has 2 bedrooms and one bath and a small basement.  It has been remodeled and updated over the past few years but the current owner and the previous owner.  If you are looking for  a cutie in the old downtown area this could be the home for you.  Let me know if you want to take a look? 

PS Are you freezing?  I sure am.

Amgen Tour rolls through Winters today!

The Corner of Railroad and Main, Winters

Well the Amgen tour just rolled through town in day2 of the tour.  It is always so exciting to seem them roll/streak down Main Street.  I am so lucky so they go right my office.  This is always a fun event to watch.  There was a very slight sprinkle when them came through town but it is dry now.  Hope the weather holds as they ride by Lake Berryessa on Highway 128. 

Bike races in Winters, CA

Well, this weekend is going to be very busy for downtown Winters!  First of all there will be a bike race which will close a lot of the streets from 7 to 5pm on Saturday.  The Winters Education  Foundation is sponsoring a bike race that will “race” around the downtown area.  I also heard that the Davis Bike Club is having their double centurion on Saturday, yes, they ride 200 miles in one day!  Can you believe that ?!   Count me in as a spectator only on that one.   Then on Monday the Amgen tour rides through Winters sometime  between 11:30 and 1pm.  So beware of traffic delays but enjoy the fun.  We are off to the Giants game in San Francisco.  Most all of us are going to celebrate Mother’s Day.  Should be a fun time.  Go Giants!

Winters Youth Day 2010

Saturday, April 24, 2010 marks another Youth Day for the history book.  It really sounds like it is going to be fun and there is a lot of excitement in the air around town.  The Class of 1960 is celebrating their 50th Class Reunion this weekend and 51 of them are in town to celebrate.  They all have t-shirts on commemorating the event and they are marching in the parade, think they will take Sweepstakes?  Be sure to make plans and come and help us celebrate, you can go to the Asparagus Festival on Sunday.  Join in the fun and come see your friends or make new ones.  It should be great!

Positas Road, Winters, closed on Wednesday, April 21, 2010, two days ahead of time!  Positas Road is located West of town, just west of where Pleasants Valley Rd meets Highway 128.  It is a small private road with about 10 parcels and awesome views.  I am sure the new owner will love it up there.  The house was 1304 square feet with 3bedrooms and 2 baths and was built in 2001.  It sold for $392,000. with a $3000. credit to the Buyer in lieu of any repairs.     That is a very nice comparable sale for everyone. 

Hope to see you all tomorrow at Youth Day.

Blogging 102

Well, it looks like this is my 102 blog!  Never did I think I would make this day/blog.  I have to admit it has gone by so quickly and it wasn’t as hard as I though it would be.  I have actually enjoyed sharing what happens in Winters with you both real estate wise and just the fun things that happen in town.   So, I will remind you that this Saturday is Youth Day.  The fun begins with the Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast at the Community Center.  Then the Kiddie Parade kicks off the parade at 9:45am at the corner of 4th and Main.  Any kid can join in the fun, if you meet the age limits of course.  Then the Main Parade starts at 10am.  It is always a lot of fun and you never know who or what you are going to see.   After the parade the festivities continue at City Park with lots of things for everyone.  Be sure to come on down and enjoy the fun.   Looking forward to seeing you there.
