Los Angeles Real Estate Market Conditions August 2009

by brook

Wondering how the Los Angeles real estate market looks at the close of the busy summer season? Despite what you may have heard, it turns out that things aren’t looking too bad after all – at least not for buyers. It’s true: You prospective buyers have nothing to fear! Los Angeles real estate prices continue to decline month-over-month; in fact, they fell 2% during the month of August. The number of homes for sale in Los Angeles is 5,185, with a median price of $485,000.

Los Angeles New Homes For Sale

Does this price reflect all types of homes? Well, if you’re specifically interested in new homes for sale in LA, the median is about $689,975 right now. There was no decline in this price from the previous month; so, theoretically that could mean an increase or a decrease in subsequent months. Translation: If you’re looking for a new home, now’s a good time to start looking.

Of course, foreclosures are a popular entry point for first time homebuyers, particularly in Los Angeles. During August, the number of LA foreclosures for sale was recorded as 13,961, with a median price of $309,970. Believe it or not, this figure actually rose .1% month-over-month! A significant increase? Not really. But it doesn’t hurt to be prepared for a potential incremental rising in the future! No matter which options sound most appealing to you, there's no sense in delaying your search. LA is a buyer's market!

Homes for Sale - Los Angeles Market Conditions July 2009

by brook

Traditionally, the summer season is one of the strongest periods of home sales in Los Angeles – and this year has been no exception. The most recently available figures indicate that 23,262 homes were sold in Southern California in the month of June (granted, the figure represents the entire region, as opposed to solely the city of Los Angeles). Experts attribute the gain to the sales of high-end homes within Southern California’s six counties, noting that fewer than half the sales were on foreclosure properties (a phenomenon witnessed only one other time since the burst of the real estate bubble nearly two years ago).

Los Angeles New Homes For Sale

Again, this data relates to Southern California as a whole; but there is news related exclusively to L.A., and it may come as a surprise. It seems that price declines have all but halted in the City of Angels, as a 6.6% month-over-month price increase was reported on Los Angeles real estate listings in June. According to reports, this is the first significant increase in two years. Strong sales are also indicated by the inventory: 44,024, to be exact, with multiple offers occurring on many of the properties. The median price of a home in Los Angeles County is currently $320,000; when compared with the 2007 peak of $505,000, this is quite astonishing. Is it a good time to buy? With prices on this slow but steady rise, it may be smart to act early.

High Rise Living: Is it a Thing of the Past?

by jim

Chic, high rise living was once a standard-bearer for cosmopolitan populations in large cities. From Los Angeles to Miami to New York City and Toronto, everyone who was anyone chose a high rise over other living options.

Today, urban living is experiencing something of a comeback; however, it seems that townhomes and condos have become the preferred attached product of many single residents, couples, and small families. Home builders are no doubt capitalizing on this; while downtown, live-work spaces are indeed gaining popularity in a number of regions, they are also quite successfully edging out their predecessor: the big city high rise. 

If you hold on to a dream of high rise living, don’t fear: It is still possible! Need some guidance/inspiration? Some of the most impressive examples currently available in high rise homes are described here:

Little Tokyo Lofts, Los Angeles: Ever drive through LA and wistfully imagine that a historic structure would convert to an apartment building – so you could move in? Hammer Ventures had the foresight to do that very thing, opting to utilize the old Westinghouse building for Little Tokyo Lofts. The 161 living spaces range from 653 to 1,800 sq. ft., and the two-story spaces boast 30 ft. ceilings. Attractively priced, these lofts were designed with the artistic personality in mind. For more information, call (213) 626-6400.

111 Central Park North, New York City: Sure, you want to live in New York City…but the thought of looking out your window and seeing grass and trees (rather than cars and blinding lights) is appealing too. For that reason, Athena Homes erected 111 Central Park North, a gorgeous skyscraper that houses luxurious living spaces averaging at 1,900 sq. ft. If you’re looking for a quintessential New York lifestyle and you can afford a seven figure price tag (the view alone is worth every penny!), you may want to ask what 111 Central Park North has available. To learn more, call (212) 381-2671.    

Festival Tower, Toronto: A city that has grown leaps and bounds, Toronto is becoming a popular destination for those looking to plant their roots up north. For career-minded individuals those who make this move, there are few options more appealing than Festival Tower. Not only is the sight of the building spectacular, but the amenities – including a pool house, cinema, fitness center, lounge, terrace, and private club spanning two floors – make this an amazing place to call home. If interested, inquire at (416) 203-2020.

Is high rise living a thing of the past? It doesn’t look like it! The only way to find out if it’s for you is to take the plunge and tour one of their spaces.
