Many buyers are looking for single family homes with views and pools in desirable neighborhoods near Downtown, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Pasadena, Silver Lake, Elysian Park Lincoln Heights and Montecito Heights.
Many of the hillside homes in Mt. Washington have septic systems, which should be emptied and tested during escrow to ensure that the buyer will not have an extremely expensive surprise after purchase. This is particularly true if the seller was a single occupant, and the buyer is a couple or family. Septic systems are much more likely to get overloaded or backed-up with a large number of residents. The good news is that efficient, maintained septic systems can cost less than City of Los Angeles monthly sewer charges.
These recently sold listings from all real estate companies show the actual prices paid for some of the properties in the past month in various price ranges.
Finding a loft, condo or apartment in Downtown Los Angeles may seem easy at first, thanks to the internet.

The problem is that most properties seen on the internet are listings several days or weeks old, and the best properties go quickly. In fact, the very best deals are often gone before they ever reach the internet. That means that the average person who is seeking an above-average loft will lose to the few, lucky loft-seekers who have direct access to the MLS where real estate brokers list the properties first. And even fewer have access to all of the unlisted properties that are not on the internet, and not listed by brokers. This post will help loft lovers to get priority access to proprietary information, allowing one to see the best properties first, before the general public takes them.
To gain access to these listed and unlisted properties, use the free resources below to browse, and then use a Downtown specialist Realtor to start getting access to new listings about 3 days earlier than the general public.

Now that the inventory of Downtown lofts and condos is extremely low, finding unlisted properties is vital to getting the best loft at the best price.Because they are not listed to the general public, buyers can often start with lower offers, with less chance of losing the property to another buyer, while giving more time to negotiate the lower price. As the number of homes for sale continues to dwindle, pocket listings are becoming more rare and more valuable. These properties are not listed with any agents, and they are not on the internet. These off-market properties represent as much as 45% of the best deals in Downtown Los Angeles. Here are few examples:

The Downtown News has reported that 950 S. Broadway, the seven-story structure across from the Ace Hotel, has plans to be turned into 30 loft apartments, and will include a rooftop deck, as well as 7,500 square feet of retail space.
Designed by Killefer Flammang Architects, which has done many Downtown LA adaptive reuse projects, the plan is to restore the historic look of the original facade, namely by re-creating a decorative cornice along the roofline and adding some balconies. White plaster will replace today’s gray concrete surfacing on the exterior.
The 102-year-old building happens to sit in the Fashion District adjacent to Palmer’s under-construction Broadway Palace, which will create nearly 700 apartments in new seven- and 10-story structures at Olympic Boulevard and Broadway. A budget and construction timeline have not been revealed.

One of the most respected buildings in Downtown Los Angeles, 1100 Wilshire towers above its neighbors as it sits atop 17 floors of parking. Every single unit in the building offers a great view.

1100 Wilshire Los Angeles
Nor have we overlooked the view on the inside: It’s sleek. Modern. Dramatic (how could it not be, with 10’8″ ceilings?). The appointments themselves go well beyond the usual: Hardwood floors. European cabinetry. Granite countertops. Stainless steel appliances. All tied together with beautiful designer color palettes. Then there’s a central A/C and heat, and washer/dryers. Compare those to many downtown high-rises. Surprisingly, those go beyond the usual as well.
Care to start your day contemplating the Hollywood sign? Or watch the stars come out, with a view of Griffith Observatory? Dodger fans have the ultimate sky box. Or perhaps a view of Disney Hall would be music to your eyes. The point is, at 1100 Wilshire, your options can start with what part of the city you’d most like to be greeted by, or fall asleep to. We offer studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, two bedroom town homes and multi-story penthouses. Your choices are above and beyond the usual. www.1100Lofts.com
