REAL ESTATE NEWS: The best deals on Downtown LA lofts have always been during the holidays, when the smart, savvy buyers take advantage of the fact that most competing buyers are out of the market and not in the game during the holiday season. And WOW!!!! When’s the last time we saw a Black Friday sale with $50,000 off? This is a holiday sale that investors will absolutely love. Those who are considering buying a home in November or December are in the minority because humans are like lower animals in that they make fewer big moves during the winter. For the few who are thinking about moving or investing in a property, the time between Halloween and New Year’s Eve can be the very best time to get a super deal because there are fewer competing buyers. When an offer is places on an amazing loft, condominium or house during this time, the offer is more likely to be accepted. Beginning January 2, everything changes. The inventory only goes up a tiny bit, while the number of buyers explodes in DTLA. For those who wait until after the new year to get started, they will find themselves caught up in an exciting (and expensive) auction effect that drives up prices due to the large number of buyers trying to outbid each other. #blackfriday #lofts #dtla

Lofts and Condos Downtown Los Angeles For Sale – Vacant and Ready For Immediate Move-In #dtla #vacant #homes
Many homes for sale are occupied by the seller, who is increasingly motivated by high selling price, and not necessarily motivated to make a quick sale. Vacant homes, on the other hand, are on the market by sellers who are motivated to sell faster, often at a lower price.
Buying or selling a home is a process, not an event. The average home buyer takes three months to 6 months from beginning the search to closing escrow and getting the keys to a new loft, condominium or house. The average home seller takes even longer, an average of more than 18 months, from considering the home sale to completing the transaction. But not everyone wants to take that much time to complete a transaction.
Nearly half of home buyers are don’t want to waste time, and prefer to move in less than 30 days after making a decision to purchase a place. Some buyers have cash for a quick sale of a home that is ready for immediate move-in after a fast escrow of as little as 10 days, or sometimes even just 4 days when there are quick negotiations with no contingencies.
For those who have already taken the time or who are otherwise ready to move sooner, the L.A. Loft Blog presents Downtown area homes that are vacant and ready for immediate move-in.

Real estate agents in Downtown Los Angeles offer expertise on buildings, neighborhoods, and they provide knowledge on the many idiosyncrasies of historic, industrial and commercial live/work loft conversions in a challenging urban neighborhood. #agents #dtla
Most buyers encounter real estate agents after perusing properties online and then calling to see a property or walking in to view an open house. Downtown Los Angeles homes for sale and for lease always have issues that buyers and renters want to know about up front. The best DTLA agents give the pros and cons to prevent untold problems so that the new resident will be 100% satisfied with their new home.
One of the most common issues in Downtown Los Angeles are lawsuits and litigation because of the time period that many of the DTLA residential buildings were built or converted from business to residential use. Buyers want to know about the litigation, including pending litigation that has not gone to court, and previous litigation that was settled.

The statistics in this L.A. Loft Blog post will surprise and shock home buyers and real estate agents alike. Realtors who specialize in helping buyers are facing a diminished financial future as buyers are feeling more empowered by the internet to find homes on their own. #buyersagent #homeprices
While using a buyer’s agent is not a legal requirement for purchase of a home in California, nearly 100% of transactions involve getting help from a buyer’s agent, listing agent or attorney. For a good chance of a successful purchase, the offer needs to be written up properly, with sufficient supporting documents so that it can be seriously considered by the seller. Most buyers choose to find and use their own agent who specializes in helping buyers and who can be dedicated to helping the buyer to find the right home, then to negotiate the best price and terms that are in the buyer’s best interest. Because technology is improving, a growing number of buyers are finding their own on real estate websites, and then contacting the listing agent without getting help from a buyer’s agent.
The Los Angeles Times reported on why some buyers are ditching the real estate agent and turning to start-ups and other websites for help instead. In the past, real estate agents had exclusive access to much real estate information that home buyers could not get themselves. But today, property listings, photos, recently sold prices, school ratings and neighborhood information such as crime rates are available free on the internet. For some assertive buyers, that’s an invitation to bypass an agent and, in the process, try to negotiate some of the 2.5% to 3% that is commonly paid to the buyers agent. Why not ask for some of that to be applied to lowering the purchase price if no buyer’s agent is being utilized? There are some new websites that specialize in helping buyers with an online platform. Some, such as Open Listings represent the buyer and then rebate half of the selling agent’s commission to the buyer.
Even with the latest technology to help buyers (92% of buyers use the Internet during their home search according to National Assn. of Realtors), most decide to use a buyer’s agent so that they won’t risk missing out on the perfect home, and they want the most powerful negotiator that comes from a full-service, fully-compensated agent who will creatively overcome the many tricky hurdles that are typical with most California real estate transactions. Most buyer choose to hire good representation because they know that there is not enough inventory in today’s market, often too many buyers who they must compete with who are using the best strategies and tactics to get the best home for the least amount of money. Then, if lucky enough to beat out the other buyers to the best deals, the buyer must then face an adversarial seller who is represented by a clever listing agent employing every strategy in their arsenal to extract as much money from the buyer as possible on the seller’s terms. Most buyers know intuitively that a cut-rate service could be risky, especially in a sophisticated area like Los Angeles, and buyers want the best help possible representation when the difficult rivals, problems and questions present themselves in a real estate transaction.
These questions include: How do I find the listing agent? How do I get just the right properties that match my criteria in my email every day as soon as they come on the market? How do I find the real bargains that are not on the internet? How do I see new homes under construction? How can I put in an offer with an escalation clause? Where can I find the special deals like distressed properties, raw lofts, REO, foreclosures, auctions, bank owned, for sale by owner, expired listings, company owned, estate sales, probate sales, homes falling out of escrow, homes falling out of contract, expired listings, listings on hold, vacant homes, divorce sales, auctions, pre-auctions, pre-foreclosure, off market properties, private listings, unlisted homes for sale, pocket listings, need-to-sell-now homes, unclaimed homes, upcoming new loft conversions and homes for sale by sellers who do not want to pay an agent? Many of these deals are missed by buyers with or without an agent.
Shocking Facts About Buyer’s Agents – Homes Sell Faster Without ‘Em
The reality of today’s real estate market is that the buyer’s agent is slowly diminishing in necessity. Possibly because they are actually slowing down home sales. As a matter of fact, the big real estate news today is that homes now sell faster when the buyer’s agent is offered less commission. Yes, you read that correctly. Homes now sell faster when the seller and listing agent share less money with the buyer’s broker. We could not believe it when some leading real estate coaches and brokers recently told us, so we ran the recent numbers for the local Los Angeles market. Higher CSO shared commission to buyer’s agent of 2.6% or more resulted in an average of 70 days on the market, while a lower CSO of 2.4% or less delivered a sale in just 57 days on average during the same 6-month period based on TheMLS data. Of course, the average home sold for significantly less money with a lower average sold price when the shared commission was lower.
While most prospective home buyers search the internet themselves first, most of them still ultimately prefer to use a buyer’s agent because that way they can feel confident that a trusted professional is on their side exclusively, they can get all of the pros and cons, and the seller pays for it.

New Lofts Development For Sale Coming Soon To Downtown Los Angeles
More than half of all of those who are thinking about owning a loft in Downtown will choose a new loft development in an historic or industrial loft building when given the opportunity. Recently, that chance has only come around about once every couple of years or so.
New lofts are popular because they combine the authentic urban character with convenient amenities, modern appliances and stylish finishes. They are often the best deal because the developer creates a glut of dozens of units for sale at a time that must be sold.
Other benefits of new lofts are an initial lack of lawsuits and litigation that plague nearly 20% of Downtown loft listings. While existing loft buyers often have issues getting a home loan, there is usually no problem getting financing at a new loft development as the developer has already connected with a lender who will provide loans on the special loft conversion condos in the formerly commercial building. There are pitfalls to avoid.
Buyers often make many mistakes when dealing with developers. In an extremely competitive environment, some buyers make the mistake of blindly trusting the seller, and then fail to get free representation from a Downtown specialist Realtor who can help the buyer to get as many advantages as possible over the seller and competing buyers. The most common and biggest mistake is innocently walking into a new loft sales office without an agent. The innocent visitor, who is just browsing, does not know that he or she will love the lofts until after seeing them. By that time, IT’S TOO LATE. The developer has already set up the potential buyer to waive several of their legal rights, starting with the right to free representation by a Downtown specialist Realtor. That is why everyone, especially first-time buyers, absolutely MUST bring a Downtown specialist real estate agent to the very first viewing to protect the buyer’s rights. Some unlucky buyers are never informed about all of the pros and cons of the building, and worst of all, some buyers never find out what is really the lowest price that the developer will accept. Many buyers pay $10,000 or more than necessary because they did not take advantage of a Guaranteed Savings Program such as Save10Grand.com.
