The Brewery Lofts Art Walk Video Tour and Photos #brewery #artwalk
Thousands of art admirers and loft lovers gathered to see dozens of exhibits by artists and vendors at The Brewery Lofts in Lincoln Heights. The world’s largest artist loft rental complex, Brewery Lofts is home and workplace to more than 500 artists. Many of them show their creative wares in an open house art exhibition twice a year. This most recent event saw a great turnout of spectators and art shoppers. Check out the video of the October 2016 event:

Lots of people said they are interested in being on the cast and crew. Check out the new Loft Wars Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Loft-Wars-662782313897898/
ALMOST A FREE HOUSE! We don’t hear these words very often. Besides sounding kinda silly, that’s probably because a home is usually the most widely desired and most expensive item that the average person will ever pay for. Even if we are fortunate enough to inherit a residence or to otherwise get one without paying for it, we would still need to pay for taxes and insurance. So the question is: How close can we get to receiving a free house? Besides inheriting real estate or winning it in some kind of raffle, the closest things to a free house is getting a good deal on a home, perhaps little or no money down, or maybe even a full 20% down and then having a positive cash flow so that we receive more money every month than we pay out toward the property. Now we are getting a bit closer to what can really be accomplished when looking in the right place. #realestate #investment
Add the fact that real estate can appreciate forever, and then realize that we can receive ever-increasing monthly rental income that turns into a growing retirement fund, it’s no wonder that real estate is the best investment that most will ever make.
The L.A. Loft Blog correctly pointed out in 2011 and succinctly phrased that Downtown real estate was “almost free.” Those who saw the truth and the value at the time have been rewarded. Many purchased then Downtown lofts for $125,000 to $250,000, rented them out at a positive cash flow, and enjoyed watching the properties grow to values of $400,000 to $500,000 in just a few years. That truly is almost free, and quite possibly could be called better than free.
Brother Andy says that Downtown Los Angeles represents the future of art.
His Grace invites us all to enter the world of a visionary. He is a Writer, Film-maker, Fine Artist, Interior Designer, Photographer and Fashionista. Provocative uber-artist (an artist skilled in over five different media), Brother Andy is a prolific auteur film-maker with over 350 films on Youtube, over 100,000 photographic images as a photgrapher, plus countless paintings and sculptures as a fine artist to his credit. His digital collage image, ‘Jesus Chimp’, is considered by some to be a masterpiece of the Intriguism Art Method (‘retro-futurism’), a creative process which he developed. The energetic creator produced highly-effective educational films for people with cognitive disabilities. A master interior decorator, brother andy helps Downtown loft owners to decorate to deliver a powerfully pleasing first impression and quickly improve the resale value when owners want to enhance the look and, feel and the ultimate selling price.
His background extends into feature films (producing hundreds of films, including six feature films in the last seven years as writer, producer, editor, and director), television (with appearances on ABC, local news stations in every Southern California major city), stage and live events, music videos and theme parks, as well as Visual Merchandising for several leading retail stores, private interior design clients and web site design. As an ‘artist whisperer’, Brother Andy has collaborated with hundreds of artists. He is also a strident advocate of nudism, feminism and animal rights. His motto is: ‘To educate and entertain, to encourage and inspire…’
The creative line for Downtown L.A. goes back to the 1970s. User-Artist Brother Andy says that the imaginative materials produced by Downtown LA are outside the box. He says Angelino artists are not deconstructionalists and not negative in their vision and works; rather they see and create a positive type of future in their artwork that is both abstratct and visionary. Compare the L.A. art scene to New York City where artists are trying harder to be seen, and contract it with artists of Europe who are busy trying to keep traditions going. His Grace says that the art culture of California is much more positive and it is about the experience. The works of Downtown artists more reflect the personality of the artists. California has so many things to do, thus myriad California adventures are part of the art. In fact, Andy says that the California state tourism board should make their next TV commercial about the artists of Downtown Los Angeles because they represent the essence of California reflecting through their work.
DTLA artists are cutting-edge, are not nasty or negative, but very upbeat according to His Grace. Beginning in the 1970s, California artists pioneered bright acrylics that are especially reflective and filled with light. Southern California, like Italy, features art infused with soft light. Artists worldwide come to Los Angeles for its natural light. Other key ingredients of the Downtown Los Angeles art scene are derived from the SoCal lifestyle: about the food, wine
Arts District Street Art
— showing that the local area art is primarily about culture. Exploding in importance for the whole world, the Downtown L.A. art scene reflects a deep understanding of art and life, according to Brother Andy. He says that the new Broad Museum is different from museums of New York City and elsewhere because the modern art museum is traditional only in that it is an exhibition, and unlike traditional museums, the Broad is cutting edge regarding today’s lifestyle.
Artist Brother Andy was a pioneer in the fledgling haunted house industry of the 1970s, creating ghoulish comedy character Armando Creeper. The artist later went on to co-found a new art movement called Intriguism. See his new film just released called Dr. Invisible free online at https://youtu.be/UTxytPjkSQU.
EVENTS – Not To Be Missed: Special Appearance By Reclusive Uber-Artist, Brother Andy
Expect the unexpected! His Grace uber-artist Brother Andy, will make a live webcast appearance as a Special Guest of Honor, attending by video broadcast at real estate mogul and film producer Corey Chambers’ fiftieth celebration on Wednesday October 26, 2016 at 7 pm no-host dinner and drinks at Peking Tavern 806 S Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014 (213) 988-8308 (Street Parking).
The gifted fine artist (“Jesus Chimp”), underground film-maker (“The Social”), and rebel fashionista will bless us with a live video “meet and greet.” This is as close as we can get for guests who wish a personal audience with His Grace. Mr. Chambers has acted as Patron of the Arts, creative collaborator, and personal confidant for the insightful guru Brother Andy for decades. The always-controversial Brother Andy is known for his out-spoken views on nudism, feminism, and sex-positive education — leading to the end of racial divides, he claims.

In a recent L.A. Loft Blog post, we reported about how the homeowners of 1100 Wilshire Blvd got what they asked for, but apparently paid an extremely hefty price (see full article). In it, the L.A. Loft Blog incorrectly reported that Chase Bank purchased or leased control of 1100 Wilshire guest parking. The L.A. Loft Blog has since learned that the former guest parking is primarily controlled by the commercial space owner Wilshire Commercial LLC. The free guest parking was lost in connection with ongoing litigation between 1100 Wilshire Property Owners Association and Wilshire Commercial LLC. #1100wilshire #lawsuits
Some homeowners have since complained that the problems mentioned in the L.A. Loft Blog (loss of guest parking and reduced maintenance) are caused, not by Chase Bank, but by a rogue homeowners board that has launched extremely expensive lawsuits without majority homeowner approval. The homeowners board and management believe that they are working in the homeowners best interests to reverse adverse impacts to the homeowners caused by actions of Wilshire Commercial LLC.
The HOA actually lost control of its valuable, once plentiful guest parking to the retail owner due to ongoing litigation with the building’s retail space owner Wilshire Commercial LLC.

The funny thing about distressed real estate is that it’s not just the property seller who is in distress; it is the buyers as well. Some are worried while others are sitting pretty.
The LA Loft Blog has been presenting valuable exclusive Downtown real estate information, market data and economic projections for more than 5 years now. And we’re just getting started. We’ve helped nearly one million buyers, sellers, renters and investors to make countless millions of dollars in profit and equity. The LA Loft Blog was among the first to remind buyers to catch the wave and buy big in 2012. We reported that buying a Downtown loft that year was going to be almost like getting free real estate. Prices more than doubled in record time. The LA Loft Blog was right on! So, what are the opportunities that we are telling you about today? — A normal market in a better-than-normal neighborhood. Superior growth! Above-average potential for return on investment. Cha-Ching!!
You won’t find a quick free property today. There are usually far more distressed properties for sale during a major economic recession. The good news for those looking for a really good deal today is that certain kinds of distressed properties are not that difficult to find. Properties are not usually considered distressed the day they are listed. If the seller takes an offer 3 days on the market, there is not a whole lot of distress there. The distressed properties are the lofts that nobody wants. They’re listed for too high of a price, they’re on the market for more than 63 days. They’re too dark, no view, cluttered or not presented well, awkward floor plans, sometimes pulled from the market prematurely. Sometimes, they just need a decorative lighting, a modern decorated look, a wall removed or a frosted glass sliding bedroom door to be added. They can all present a better-than-average deal because they are overlooked by most buyers. But should we focus on the superior investment potential of the amazing historic loft architecture or the upcoming special assessment to repair the crumbling building facade?
Here’s a BIG hint folks: Sometimes there are micro recessions and market glitches that give better deals: pre-elections, holidays, market lulls and nearby construction booms can create a mini glut and temporarily low prices. Did you get the hint? Those are all happening in Downtown right now! Yes, as billionaire Warren Buffet says “Get greedy when others are scared, and get scared when others are greedy.” Today, there’s a bit more scared than greedy in DTLA, so the astute investors know that they should be just a little bit greedy at this point.
Today in Downtown Los Angeles, there are virtually zero foreclosures. There are several other categories of distressed properties: vacant more than 30 days, buildings with lawsuits, post-litigation and pre-litigation, neglected properties, raw lofts, properties with upcoming special assessments, canceled and withdrawn listings, unlisted, pocket listings and off-market properties, and sellers who must sell fast. The most often overlooked deal is the ignored overpriced loft that becomes underpriced after receiving a strategic offer.

While this article is about real estate news, we’re going to take advantage of what scientists, mathematicians and quantum physicists have learned recently so the LA Loft Blog can help DTLA home buyers, sellers, renters and landlords today to take a quantum leap in wisdom, wealth and happiness. #downtownla #realestate #news
It turns out that there’s more truth than they thought when it comes to finding something that we like, and getting that special “vibe” or wave form.
Everything is Waves
What we once thought was real and tangible turns out to be waves… vibrations. It takes years of local neighborhood market knowledge to help lead buyers to the best matches of the buyer’s home buying criteria so that the buyer can find the right place and catch the right vibe.
Quantum Physics is Probabilistic
Scientists have recently learned that it’s impossible to predict with certainty the outcome of an experiment. We can only calculate how likely or unlikely the outcome is. Sound familiar? That’s always been obvious with the dismal science of economics, especially real estate. Fortunately, we can use numbers to determine if financial success is likely, and best of all, we don’t need to use any math to know if we like something — in the right circumstances, the “vibe” can tell us that with absolute certainty. Just remember to calculate the probability of risk from Downtown lawsuits, assessments and loft lending issues.
There’s a Lot More Than Meets the Eye
Unfortunately, we humans are only able to see a tiny slice of all that exists, and then we can only see what happens to match our own human consciousness. Almost all things in the universe are either not visible, too small, too large or too far away to see. That’s especially true in Downtown real estate. The L.A. Loft Blog has reported that up to 45% of the best deals on the most amazing lofts are never seen by most buyers and never hear of by most real estate professionals or the internet. Out of sight and out of mind, yet most buyers miss out on the ideal home because of this. These are called pocket listings, off-market or unlisted properties for sale. It takes special technology to find them.
