Los Angeles, CA Real Estate News

 In no particular order, Cheviot Hills/Rancho Park is our next stop.  Looking at the Year-To-Date numbers below, we see that the area is performing stronger than last year.  Sales volume shows a 28% increase and a median price rise of 5%.  The days on market, which is time spent on the open market before a home receives an accepted offer and goes into contract, was relatively the same with a 5% decrease of time spent on the open market. Along with the excellent schools, central location to shopping and outdoor activities, gorgeous tree lined streets with large lots and custom homes, the current low inventory level of the area is helping keep the prices stable and to slowly appreciate.  In the Cheviot Hills Homeowners Association area, there are only 11 total homes for sale ranging from ...

Buyers market and low interest rates are together at last. What a beautiful blend! That is huge news.It is rare good news. It's been 9 years since this real estate phenomenon has occurred. Yes, the deal is, that you have to be ready, qualified, have a good fico score, and all the traditional lending rules apply.  I am helping a teacher right now and it is a total joy. She is bright, grateful and has a clean payment history just ready to buy. The real estate wave is ready to take her to a home of her own. Los angeles, the city of angels has one for you. The County, City and State have rewards for teachers, military, fire, and police. Lately the lenders are the ones that have had to prove their value and VALUES.  If you know anyone renting who has been waiting...help them find a home. Thi...

I love being a loan officer because it provides me with the time to do things that I love, that is, helping people.  I don't like people that are negative because it just makes me sad.  It makes me not believe in the goodness of humanity when I see shootings on the news and other things.  I think it is important to make money but to keep God at heart at all times.  I think my firm could help because we have loan officers with over 10 years expertise in the industry.  Our firm is not about making money only, but helping people and I think that is the most important thing.  It is all about people and making good relationships with people.  I love it!

I thought this was some good insight to share... The National Association of Realtors has had its share of battles this year, but none is more frustrating than the national media telling homebuyers that investing in a home is a stupid idea. First, they keep trying to make real estate into a national market, and then they treat the approximately 2 percent loss in housing prices for 2007 like the Crash of 1929. From the Housing Bubble to the Mortgage Meltdown, the press has been relentless, even though most people have lost more money on their SUV's and their stock portfolio than their homes this year. It's time for a little perspective here, folks. Here are a few facts the NAR would like the media to remember: Even though national housing prices are likely to dip around two percent this ...

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has sponsored a "Festival of Lights" in Griffith Park for over a decade now.  Every year they seem to add something new.  This is a wonderful display of lights that is offered to us at no charge.  You can park by the zoo and either walk or take the shuttle. You can also drive in from Los Feliz because traffic can only travel North during the festival.  For more information go to http://www.dwplightfestival.com/.  If you decide that you are going to drive try to get there at dusk because it does get really crowded and sitting in gridlock can take away from the enjoyment.  My suggestion is to bundle up and walk along the trail.  You get to work off a few calories, which we all have to do during the holidays, and enjoy some fresh air.

With real estate in Los Angeles being so incredibly expensive, even in a down market, I get a lot of calls from people regarding manufactured homes.  Okay, not a lot of calls, but enough calls to merit a blog.I first got involved with manufactured homes when my parents called to say they found an ad on craigslist for a cottage for sale.  Every strange story I have seems to start with craigslist; any website famous for its unsolicited postings of male genitalia needs to be taken with a grain of salt, IMHO, but this sad fact in no way dampened my mother's enthusiasm.  "It's only $120,000," my mother crowed.  My parents had just moved out to LA from Georgia to be closer to the grandchild they kept nagging to be conceived, and had no idea how ungodly expensive real estate is here.  "It's ei...

According to a recent article published in the Los Angeles Times, real estate prices are expected to drop across the board in California . In 2008, the California Association of Realtors forecasts that the median price of existing homes will decline 4% to $553,000. In contrast, during 2003-2005, home prices increased at a rate of 16% per year. The glory days seem to be over as the market readjusts to general softness in home sales. Even though home sales experienced a downturn of around 23% for 2007, homes are optimistically forecasted to increase by 3.5% to a record of $576,000. It comes down to another fundamental lesson in supply and demand. The housing market simply is not immune to general principles of economics, as the supply of new and existing homes in California as of August 2...

11.02.07   n-PRO Headline NewsDo Most Closings Seem Like Touch and Go?Well FORTUNATE for me, I had a closing today on a Padre Island home. I represented the Buyers - a Great family... first time home buyers. They're definitely new friends that I've made for life.We passed the original closing date by about six days, but we closed on 4th and Goal today! Hoorah!Do most closings seem touch and go?Even with the best of attempts to make everything go smooth, it seems as though delays in closings is a natural part of the system. Why? Because there are so many players involved in making a home sell. OPTIMISM is contagious! And it's all a matter of viewing On Top of the Box, All Around the Box, Under the Box, Outside of the Box, and yes, In The Box!Cheers, KIM.Contact Mr. C. KIM McGuire, n-PRO ...

Last Friday a fixer/teardown on Kelton in Westwood had 14 offers on it! The home was situated on a 5,400 square foot lot, which is among the smaller lot sizes in Westwood. The sale is estimated at $100,000+ the asking price. Another fixer/teardown on Kelton closed last week that had multiple offers on it as well and went very close to the asking price. A fixer/teardown on Lauriston, south of Olympic, recently had multiple offers as well. The fixer/teardown's are still a HOT commodity in Westwood. With most of them going multiple offers. There are still a few fixers available on the market in Westwood priced under $1,000,000.

I received an email today from a prospective buyer stating how he and his family are looking for a home in Los Angeles. He also mentioned how there are ‘bargains' to be found here. Is it because of the headlines of "Mortgage Meltdown" and "Record Foreclosures" spell discounts for home buyers? Not necessarily. The areas where homeowners are currently receiving a Notice of Default, (Palmdale, Riverside,etc.) are the areas that have seen price declines. Every time there is a foreclosure in these areas, a home is sold for less than it would otherwise, so it then becomes a "comp", ultimately affecting the value of the neighborhood. At the moment, there are very few foreclosures in desirable areas of Los Angeles, therefore prices have remained stable in these areas. The current sentiment remi...

  Last weekend I had the opportunity to have a Booth at the Yoga Walk - Go Green at the Convention Center in LA.  It was a pretty Diverse Convention ranging from Energy Efficient Cars (Saturn), Cleaning products (Green it yourself), Yoga, Yoga Teachings and so much more.   I even had my    taken.  This was hilarious.  They had an "Aura" Camera at the Show.  Come on, I know!  I had to try it.   I am, I swear, I am in there somewhere. As you can see it is surrounded by RED.  And this translates into what they tell me is " VITALITY".  Apparently the colors of  your Aura are associated with specific abilities or qualities you have.  Here is a suggested brief description of range of colors for my AuraRED = Activity, Extroversion, movement, vitality, health,  emotionality.  I have also a Ligh...

Hello All: First of all, I now have a blog that I'm trying out.  Please visit my Notary Public blog. It looks like a fun and easy way to connect with the community.  On the blog, I did include some information about a great source for half priced tickets.  I found the half priced ticket service about a year ago.  I have been enjoying many plays, concerts, and comedy houses now that they are affordable through this service.  I have sworn off ticketmaster due to their poor customer service and ridiculous service fees.  I highly recommend following the link I posted above and checking them out.  Please let me know about your experience too.  I just have nothing but wonderful things to say about them.  Enjoy!

This past Saturday, Sept. 15th, was World Wide Staging Day for the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP). Our local West Los Angeles Chapter's project was the Day Center at the Downtown Womens' Center (http://www.dwcweb.org). The Downtown Women’s Center provides 40,000 meals, 47 permanent  housing apartments, and a wide array of  other supportive services to over 2000 homeless and very low-income women each year. The Day Center is a space where homeless women can come during the day to take a shower and a nap and have something to eat.With generous donations from CORT Furniture Rental and Fashion Furniture, our local ASPs were able to transform a once dreary room into a warm, homelike sanctuary for these women. I can't tell you what a rewarding experience it wa...
