Residential 1-4 Units:
1-4  family properties are those properties that are designed to house 1 family in one unit otherwise called a Single Family Residence or SFR.  A 2 unit property is called a Duplex and can house two families.   With a Duplex, one unit can be owner occupied and the other unit can be a rental used to offset the owner's mortgage payment, or both units can be used for investment purposes.  A 3 unit property is called a Tri-plex and can be used the same as a Duplex.  A 4 unit property is called a fourplex and can be used the same as above.

The reason 1-4 units are separated out that way is due to the financing that can be obtained for them.  1-4 family residences can be financed using traditional lending sources such as FHA, VA Conventional, and Jumbo Loans.  More than 4 units will fall under commercial financing.  

Residential Land and Lots:
Bare Land is a bit more complicated to put a value on as it will depend if the land has been improved or not.  Improvements are items like utilities on site, curbs, and streets, wells, and septic, or maps to subdivide the parcel.  When we are working with buyer of Land we will need to know exactly what they intend to do with the land they want to buy.  With different uses of land, we will have to make sure that the zoning is in order as well as if the county will let them use the land for what they want to use it for.   For sellers, we will investigate the highest and best use for that land and market to those strong points.  We strive to get the highest price for our sellers no matter what type of property they list with us.

Rural Properties:
These are unique properties that usually sit on a large lot or acreage with few comparable sales to compare to.  We are Long time residences of rural Placer County, so we are very well versed in rural property with Water Wells and Septic Systems and acreage.  We have closed transactions with property in excess of 40 acres and have arranged the financing for them.  Horse property and barns are Real Estate types which require expertise to value and we have the experience that to get our buyers and sellers the best deal possible.  Large properties with many structures are also a specialty we can assist our buyers and sellers with.  Rural properties can be tricky if the Agent does not know how to represent them properly, we understand this and we are here to help.   We would love the opportunity to help you sell you rural property and get all the inspection we know are necessary to sell these types of properties.  Our buyers are very appreciative when we walk them through the inspection process and how to interpret them.  We look forward to helping you navigate buying or selling a Rural Property as we have the expertise to make your experience a positive one. 

Commercial Property:
Commercial property is zoned and is used for nonresidential purposes.   Commercial Property valuation is mostly based on income that the property is or can generate.  When putting a value on commercial property we do it by taking the net operating income for the property and apply a Capitalization Rate that is common to the area to come up with a price point.  We also use a similar sales comparison method of similar types of properties that have sold in the area.  We will also use a price per square foot method that is common to the area.  We generally use all these techniques when valuing commercial property.  

When working with a buyer of Commerical property it is our job to gather all the necessary information about any particular property and evaluate that the property from all aspects of our client's needs.  We will obtain all the existing title information, rent rolls, Income and operating statements and any inspections that have been done on the property and evaluate them for our client and present the facts and offer opinions.  

When working with seller's of commercial property we will advise them to get certain inspections so they know upfront what they may have to fix and what those costs may be.  We will gather existing rent rolls, income, and operating statements and we will help with placing a value or a sales price together 

Commercial Land:
Commercial land will vary from large Farm Land to commercial lots in a downtown area.  Depending on what the land is used for or has the potential to be used for will the valuation be based.  Current zoning and local county restrictions will play a role on the evaluation of commercial land.  Each parcel will be unique and come with it's own set of unique circumstances that will require evaluation.   As a buyer, we will assist you with the evaluation of the property, zoning, and all potential pitfalls of the property for the purpose you are wanting the property for.  As a seller, we will get the necessary reports for you to be able to present to potential buyers of your property and negotiate the best possible price for you when offers come in. 

Churches:   We have special funding sources for churches.  If you are looking to sell a church in California we can and list it and sell it with the financing a potential buyer will need.  If you are looking to purchase a Church we have the funding sources available. 

Other property types
:

No matter what the property type is we generally can evaluate it list and sell it.  There are mixed use properties that can be evaluated with all the above techniques.  There are industrial buildings that are similar to commercial property.  

Our Services:
Our main goal is to list and sell  your property where you will receive the highest proceeds from the sale of your property.  Knowing the area in which your property is located is paramount and probably the single most important aspect of what we do.  We will check the title to your property to make sure there are no liens that you may not know of.  We will work with your existing lender to make sure they are paid off.  If you need to short sale your property we will work with the lender to make sure the process is as smooth as possible.  Having negotiated many short sales we will apply our experience to make the transaction as smooth as we can.    

Communication is a crucial part of any Real Estate transaction and we pride ourselves with this ability to get you the news as it happens.  You will be fully informed throughout the process.  

Marketing is not just putting your listing into the multiple listing service (MLS), it involves a network of other Agents to market your property as well.  We use all the latest techniques as well as syndicating your property on all the major consumer sites like Zillow, Trulia, Red Fin, Homes.com, Realtor.com, Loopnet, and over 60 other similar sites.  We make sure your property gets in front of those that want to see it.  With our special marketing engine that will send your listing to every agent in the area so they know your property is for sale.

Costs:
The cost of selling a property will vary on type of property and the complexity.  The standard commission is a two-way street where you advertise a commission you will pay another Agent to bring buyers to show your property, and the commission (we) the Listing Agent will receive.  As an example; if there was a total commission rate of 5% in the listing that is split with the selling Agent 2.5% and 2.5% to the Listing Agent.  These Standards have been tried to change over the years but have stayed in the 4-6% range even in today's world.  Our commissions are negotiable as the Agent representing you in the selling of your home.  If we make 1% on a million dollar sale that is generally enough to market and sell a property for us, however, we generally do not control the buyer and we recommend that to entice an Agent, who represent buyers in that price range, they get 2-3%.  

We will work with sellers on a flat fee basis as well, you just have to ask for this.  With a flat fee, a seller has to know what they will get in return and we do our best to show this to our sellers in advance.  Remember, that we do not collect any upfront fees, all fees are collected at the close of escrow.  This Flat fee commission method works really well when we represent you as a buyer of your next home and even better if we also do the home loan for you.  With this bundling of services you can end up saving thousands, in the long run, working with MAE Capital Real Estate and Loan.  Call for a more in-depth look at listing your home for sale.

When working with buyers the Real estate commissions is already set by the listing Agent. The seller will pay for our services when we represent you as a buyer. 

We look forward to helping you list and sell you your home.  We value our clients, now and well into the future.
