San Jose fourplex investments - short sales, REOs or regular sales?

We just toured 7 fourplexes in west San Jose and Campbell - short sales, bank owned and regular sales. The highlights?

1. Best price - $799,000 for 3,984 square feet on a 10,000 square foot lot. Awesome old growth tree landscaping in lieu of tacky patio area.
2. Best location - $770,000 for 2,986 square feet in west San Jose. Corner lot, private access to parking area and a garage for the owner's unit.
3. Worst price - the short sale in Campbell that had the best attributes. Why ask a lofty, over- market price on a short sale that needs to move?
4. Worst comparison - the regular sale identical building $68,000 under the short sale across the street.
5. Best after tour meal - La Pizzeria in downtown Campbell - 4 solid stars on Yelp.

Call us for great deals in the duplex - fourplex market. In San Jose, where there has been sub-prime, low down or no down lending, there is opportunity of short sales and bank owned property.
