The Condominium Market Trend in Rancho Park/Cheviot Hills seems very quiet.....If you were wondering why there were hardly any open house signs and it felt like that there was virtually no activity in the 90064 Zip Code  Condominium Market?These charts might give you a better explanation why there were virtually no Condominiums on the Market. Well at least that is what it appeared to be: Needless to say when there are virtually no homes to sell it will create a quieter January in the 90064 Zip Code. Fewer Open House Signs, because the listing is virtually sold as soon as it comes on the market. Now with that said let us compare the Sold statistics for the same time period. WE are only looking in this Zip Code primarily the  Condominiums if you are not familiar with the Greater Los Angel...

Bentleys everywhere in Los Angeles, CA Los Angeles has often been called the Car Capital of the World (not to be confused with Detroit, our Motor City).  The Los Angeles title has been achieved by the vast amount of space, i.e., 60 square miles of greater Los Angeles alone houses probably 75% of the world’s most luxurious homes and cars. So it goes without saying that  when I am not on the computer communicating with my clients and connections from all over the world, I am driving around (alas, not in a Bentley) previewing properties for all of my  international and out-of-state clients based from  all over the U.S., and throughout Europe,  the Middle East and Asia. The other day I could not help but notice that I saw at least five Bentleys in the short span (a mere 6 mile radius) from ...

Rainy afternoon in “Sunny California” Is that an oxymoron or not? Having lived in sunny California for the past 17 plus years, we are so accustomed to the sunshine that we really get excited when it rains. Interestingly this winter has been one of the driest we have had in over 30+ years.     The politicians have been making hay with this. It’s even been suggested to cut back on showers.  Good agendas to support for the sake of the water shortage due to the of the lack of precipitation, which is a very serious concern and one not to be taken lightly.  The other day I was thrilled to be driving back from one of my listings in the midst of a much needed rain shower. I have decided to support the cause and I have cut back on drinking water and focused on drinking more wineJ.   If you are c...

Earthquake Tips Post  #3 As you know, previously I have written a couple of post about' earthquake myths'. We just had one in the not too distant past, a week ago to be exact, a 7.2 Earthquake. This one was larger than the Northridge quake of 1994. It went relatively unnoticed in the major media outlets for a number of reasons. One as you know the Media likes sensationalism, l for one am grateful that there was less than five people who died, hence it was not newsworthy. Diane (my other half) was on the East Coast and she told me, it did not even make it in the news, only as a one liner. As you know Southern California is big on earthquake readiness and response services. Our teams have helped all over the world, Haiti being to most recent one. There is no substitute for keeping your fa...

As a professional Los Angeles Home Stager, it is always a pleasure to work with clients who  take your advice and roll with it! Such was the case with a recent listing in Cheviot Hills. The couple living in the home were retiring and moving to Palm Springs, so they wanted to sell their beautiful Spanish style home…quickly! The agent, Randy Troup of Coldwell Banker Brentwood West, often hires me to do Staging Consultation reports for his sellers. I preview the property and spend a couple of hours giving the sellers detailed recommendations of low-cost things they can do to (using mostly what they already have in the home) to Stage their property for sale. I met with this lovely couple and gave them quite a list! Their home was beautiful to begin with, but there were several things I reco...
