The Pacific Palisades beach community is very interesting when it comes to Real Estate, there is a great many Single Family Residences and at the same time there is a good balance of Condominiums as well. Hence the buyers who prefer Condominium life style and choose to live in Condominiums. Keep in mind it is not a budgetary reason it is a life style. I still remember 20 years ago going through a Townhome and it was full of Laker's Memorabilia, yes you guessed it. It was Jerry West's Townhome....So with that said let's look at the Days on Market for the Pacific Palisades Condominiums:As you can see it is a fast market clearly Sellers are in the driver's seat when it comes to selling their Condominiums. Not surprisingly the Median Sales Price reflects the fast pase of the Real Estate Mar...

One of my favorite parts of Los Angeles happens to be Pacific Palisades it is a very affluent "suburb of Los Angeles" I have written about the fact that people leave their chairs out the night before the 4th of July Parade so they can have good seats at the parade... No one steals, the chairs a life almost too good to be true.About 18 years ago I remember walking through a  Townhome and it was covered with Lakers Pictures,  framed T-shirts of Laker Players well it turned out there was a connection.....Jerry West always had a connection to Pacific Palisades...  in the not too recent past he bought his son a Towne Home (around 2013) and has still a foothold in Pacific Palisades. Now with this trivia let's look at the Market Activity: As you can see the Median Price per Surre foot is still...

Recently I was asked how does the Real Estate Market compare to two specific areas? Needless to say Beverly Hills and Pacific Palisades usually do not get compared. Two different demographics never the less I said;No problem let's look at the inventory for starters: Then my thought was let us look at the Median Days on Market that usually tells a lot. I was expecting Beverly Hills to be a faster market. Well see for yourself!Imagine my surprise clearly it is evident that the Pacific Palisades is a faster market. There is a desire to live in Los Angeles but have the "suburban feel" close to the Ocean and close to Beverly Hills. The Palisades is more of a Bedroom Community, hence it tells me that there is a higher demand for such an opportunity.Now the Pending sales surprised  me as well ...

Pacific Paisades Fixer Upper Listing Presentation! Many people wonder what life is like in the day of a Realtor. Well let me tell you something, during my time of being a Realtor with many co-workers, I found that there were numerous Realtors wanted to write books, plays and comedy shows  to let the general public   know what our day to day activity consist of. Every time I heard this, I started to laugh, and commented that no one would appreciate it, nor no one would want to hear it.   So here comes Active Rain and wants us to share our most strange, our weirdest or out of the ordinary incident we had as a Realtor.  Being a Realtor for over 15+ years, let me tell you it is a large array of choices and events that I could share. The question is what would you like to hear about?   Is i...

The Pacific Palisades are actually a part of L.A., but I like to think of them as the Hollywood Hills (or maybe Malibu) of Santa Monica. There are plenty of views, the taste of salt air, and the feeling that you've somehow gotten away from it all. This isn't even completely fair since these older and newer communities lining the foot hills of the Santa Monica Mountains on the Pacific Ocean have a unique character and story of their own. Pacific Palisades was originally built up around 'the Village' on the bluffs by the sea where Sunset Boulevard winds its way west just past Will Rogers' old estate (which still exists as a California State Historic Park.) A number of homes in the area actually date from the early days of the golden age of cinema. This is clearly reflected in the Moorish...

A minimum investment of 3.50%. This can include a combination of borrower paid down payment and closing costs, or gift funds. Most conventional loans today require 5% down or greater, not including closing costs. Some costs are excluded such as discount points, prepaid items, seller paid closing costs, etc. No minimum FICO requirement, making loans available to those who don't have high enough FICO scores for a conventional loan. More lenient qualifying ratios of 31% front-end (gross income /PITI) and 43% back-end (gross income / PITI + other monthly liabilities). The conventional loan qualifying ratios are 28% and 36%, respectively. FHA allows buyers to use a higher percentage of their income towards housing costs. People with bankruptcies may qualify. For Chapter 7, borrowers may be ...
