Los Angeles Magazine just came out with its New-New Downtown Urban Adventurer’s Handbook. While the issue cover title is “51 Ways to Explore DTLA,” the L.A. Loft Blog is of course offering 52 Ways to Explore DTLA because real estate is a fantastic way to travel through and familiarize oneself with any neighborhood, especially Downtown L.A. And just when we thought that we’d one-upped Los Angeles Magazine, they’ve already added three additional ways to explore, so we’re now at 55 ways to explore Downtown LA.
A better title would be “Things to See and Do in Downtown Los Angeles.” The article starts with the restaurants and recreation spots of the Arts District, and includes several craft-brewering beer breweries. A bunch of rooftop restaurants and scenic perches give visitors a chance to observe everything in one sweep. Other neighborhood attractions include Chinatown’s renewed State Historic Park and Little Tokyo’s sushi stops. The hotels of the Historic Core and South Park, art houses and coffee roasters lure explorers along, where they can finally sit down and enjoy a classic film at the fancy historic theaters of the gilded age. | TOUR
TOUR – A private tour of lofts for sale or for lease is the only activity that we can think of that would be more adventurous, fun, revealing and more profitable than just about any other method of exploration.

Lofts and Condos with Bedroom Doors
While more than half of condos for sale in Downtown L.A. are industrial or commercial loft conversions, not everyone wants an all open loft with no bedroom doors. Many prefer the privacy, quiet and utility of a traditional or modern contemporary condominium unit with bedroom doors that close for privacy and quiet sleep. Some historic lofts also have bedrooms with doors that close, although they are quite rare. For those who want master bedrooms with master bathrooms, a traditional style contemporary condominium unit offers the best chances of finding this expected modern luxury. In addition to home search, the L.A. Loft Blog provides free help for prospective home buyers and renters to find just the right kind of place. Call (213) 880-9910 or use the form below.

Industrial Lofts Downtown Los Angeles #artsdistrict #lofts
An industrial loft is a live/work residential space, usually converted from a previous older work-related space that has been used for an industry related to manufacturing or other commercial production business. Many industrial lofts are constructed primarily of concrete, brick, wood or steal, giving them a uniquely sturdy character, often with historic and antique features. Many of these lofts are in the Arts District.
Industrial Loft for Lease Downtown Los Angeles on Broadway
Downtown Los Angeles offers several industrial style buildings with loft for sale and for lease. With large open space, big windows and concrete floors or wood instead of carpet, these renovated and updated robust buildings are now considered by young urban professionals to be the most “modern” of homes in terms of today’s style requirements. Industrial lofts tend to be the most pet friendly of all urban housing, often allowing large dogs and well-behaved animals of stereotypically aggressive breeds such as rottweilers, pit bulls, german shepherds etc. Some industrial buildings have 2-story lofts with two levels including mezzanine bed area, that give the loft extra high ceilings and extra bed separation.

Los Angeles Foreclosures Getting Hard To Find Around Downtown LA
Downtown Los Angeles Distressed Properties
DISTRESS SALE – Most REO foreclosure, auction, 3rd party and bank owned properties are advertised by commercial website services that charge to look at them, only to later reveal that they are not really foreclosures, but pre-foreclosures and pre-auctions, homes that usually are not going to be sold. Most home shoppers find that the $50.00 they spend on these fake foreclosure real estate tracking services are not worth the money. The solution to this problem is for prospective home buyers to get access to all types of distressed properties, including priority access to hot new listings in addition to expired, vacant, unsold, raw lofts, divorce sales, pocket listings, off-market and unlisted properties in Downtown LA, and also the up-and-coming neighborhoods near DTLA.

How to Get into Escrow and Close Successfully in Downtown Los Angeles
Some happy home buyers just got into escrow with the best deal on a Downtown loft with a balcony at the Eckardt Building. Escrow generally refers to money held by a trusted third-party on behalf of transacting parties, and to the process of smoothly bringing together all of the paperwork and payments required to change property ownership. For Downtown homes, it is helpful if the escrow company is familiar with commercial and industrial loft conversions, as they may require some extra steps and expertise for a smooth transaction. | Avoid Common Downtown Disasters #escrow #dtla #lofts
Getting into escrow is a key goal for both buyers and sellers. It is often the happiest part of a real estate transaction because the light can be seen at the end of the long real estate transaction tunnel. Buyers and sellers are often happiest at the beginning of escrow because they typically face challenges before and later during escrow with hurdles that still must be overcome such as inspections, further negotiations and delays in obtaining the home financing and closing. | Recently SOLD in Downtown Los Angeles
The very first part of the transaction can be daunting when the buyer has trouble finding and winning the bidding war on an amazing Downtown loft while the seller can have difficulty in finding the right buyer with the right offer and sufficient financing. With the right information, home buyers and sellers can take advantage of all of the profitable opportunities that DTLA lofts have to offer.
