2. Not using downtown loft specialist buyers agent

3. Not bringing agent with on first visit

4. Not finding out about defects in building

5. Not having the right strategies to negotiate with the seller

4) New Lofts:

New Lofts came onto the market this past weekend in Downtown Los Angeles. ¬†Corey’s team has been following the construction of this warehouse conversion. ¬†Many past blogs have been written to promote these new lofts. ¬†These lofts are located in¬†one of the hottest up-and-coming urban neighborhoods in the country. ¬†Out of the 5,000 units under construction in Downtown Los Angeles, the new loft units only represent about 1% of the total! Given the low supply and the pent-up demand for new condos/lofts, you can only imagine the buyers‚Äô interest this is bringing.

These loft units range in size from 679 to 2,000 square feet.  Twelve units will be open-style loft units ranging in size from 679 to 995 square feet and the remaining three units will be stunning two-story townhomes ranging from 1232 to 1355 square feet. Prices will start in the low $400,000 range.

Amenities onsite will include a gallery breeze-way; an outdoor lounge with green canopy, a water fountain, fireplace, and seating areas; and the outdoor furnished courtyard that was created by removing the original warehouse roof exposing the historic wooden trusses.

5) Pocket Listing:

Corey’s team is contacted most often by purchasers that are interested in our pocket listings.¬†With 10 times as many pocket listings, Corey‚Äôs team has provided more than 100 unlisted properties, secret inventory not available to the general public.

164137_kitchenThese special properties are sold privately and have yet to be listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  Many property owners want to sell their real estate, but do not want the aggravation associated with showing the property.  This is especially true in the loft market where sellers of real estate want buyers, not just curious people. For over a year Downtown Los Angeles lofts have been virtually sold out.

LINCOLN HEIGHTS – Larger Industrial Downtown Lofts at Lower Prices

View from Lincoln Heights Park

The Lincoln Heights neighborhood in Los Angeles is technically not in Downtown, but offers Downtown lofts at lower prices. ¬†¬†Lincoln Heights is considered to be the oldest neighborhood in Los Angeles outside of Downtown, dating to the 1830s. ¬†Located by¬†Chinatown, Elysian Park, Montecito Heights and Boyle Heights, the area is perched on bluffs above the Los Angeles River and it was originally home to some of the city’s wealthiest residents. The early residents built a large number of¬†Victorian¬†mansions in the district (many of which have been preserved under the city’s¬†historic preservation¬†program).

Lincoln Heights¬†is known for it’s beautiful Park. ¬†It was one of Los Angeles’ first parks. ¬†The park contains a large lake (Lincoln Park Lake, originally East Lake), a recreation center, a senior center, a playground, picnic tables, and ball fields.

Also in the area is the world renowned Brewery Lofts Artist Colony, the worlds largest artist loft rental complex. ¬†The Brewery Art Colony, has been called the largest live-work artists’ colony in the world. The compound sits on twenty-one former warehouses with an old Edison power plant chimney dating to 1903; it contains house work studios, living lofts, restaurants¬†and galleries.

The Brewery Art Walk is a twice-annual free event showcasing Los Angeles artists selling fine art at studio prices.  Artists open up their homes to the public and allow them to browse and purchase their artwork in their lofts.

The Brewery Art Colony consists of three and hundred twenty oversized artist lofts converted from the former Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery. Zoned for live/work, the lofts house hundreds of artists working in dozens of media ‚Äď from painting, sculpture and photography to industrial design, architecture and experimental new media.

Lacy Street Lofts Lincoln Heights Los Angeles
Lacy Street Lofts Lincoln Heights Los Angeles

Another artists community and loft rental complex is the Lacy Studio Loft complex.  Also called the Lacy Street Lofts, the Property’s 46 live/work studio units spread across a uniquely-urban-landscaped campus, 30+ foot ceilings with mezzanines and skylights, polished concrete floors, and painted drywall with exposed brick walls. All have units have operable windows and many have small outdoor areas.  These extraordinary spaces with tall ceilings, city views and skillful architectural detailing, are tailored to the needs of intensely creative artists and entrepreneurs involved in visual and performing arts, as well as all aspects of the entertainment industry.

This location has a lot going for it. ¬†It is right next to the Metro Goldline, there is a park nearby, a local commercial neighborhood center is down the block, it has easy access to the L.A. River/Arroyo Seco, and it’s next to the 5/110 freeway interchange. ¬†Lacy Street Studio Lofts has own art walk and art events.

The Edward Reyes Humboldt River Greenway project converted a 135-acre space, located between Avenue 18 and Avenue 19 in Lincoln Heights, into a storm water greenway.  It takes runoff-water though a storm drain beneath Humboldt Street and transports it through landscape features that cleanse the water of pollutants before releasing it into the Los Angeles River. The project includes vegetation, trees and an irrigation system.  The park is lit with solar lights, and includes bridges, drinking fountains and a bike stop for pedestrians.

Given the low supply and the pent-up demand for new condos/lofts, you can only imagine the buyers’ interest this is bringing.

The developer’s marketing hype was extraordinarily effective. ¬†Many of the buyers overpaid, and were not informed about all issues, pro and con, related to the building an developer. ¬†They joined previous buyer who paid too much 5 years ago, many of whom are still upside down and unable to unload their overpriced lofts.

IMG_3651Often times, important information is often not provided to buyers of new lofts. ¬†This is particularly true if the buyer does not use a buyer’s agent, or if the buyer uses an out of area agent. ¬†Most buyers should use a Downtown specialist realtor at no cost to the buyer to represent the buyer in their purchase of new lofts.

A little historical background: This loft conversion from a historic building was once the warehouse for the LA-based furniture company in Downtown LA, was built in the early 1900s. The furniture started in 1882 and lasted for 110 years before shuttering, sadly, in 1992.

0_4200_0_2800_one_downtown-la-outdoor-seating-customers-ld0907For the better, gentrification is in full swing and in small ways the unique history of downtown Los Angeles has been preserved in the process.  There has been a huge effort in all of the districts in downtown Los Angeles to breath new life, and the communities have been flooded with welcoming changes.

High-end restaurants, retailers, dogparks, mass transit expansion, bike lanes, increased policing and safety, grocery stores, gymnasiums, etc.  New high-end hotels are being built, new museums are beginning to be constructed; and centers for some of the greatest sporting events, hollywood ceremonies, and cultural performances are front and center in downtown Los Angeles.

reyes-humboldt-greenway-park-01The Los Angeles River, which has been encased in cement since the 1930s to protect the fast-growing city from life-threatening floods, has recently been a primary focus of the city to roll back the damage.    Continued prosperity in Downtown Los Angeles will depend on providing needed parks, and because with the growth of a great metropolis here, the past absence of parks made living conditions less and less attractive.  Today, recent advances in restoring the L.A. River and establishing a massive greenway along the long-neglected 52-mile waterway is changing perceptions of the downtown area.

reyes-humboldt-greenway-park-02-wuppyThe Edward Reyes Humboldt River Greenway park is  a 135-acre space, located between Avenue 18 and Avenue 19 in Lincoln Heights, with a storm water greenway.  The new park takes runoff-water though a storm drain beneath Humboldt Street and transports it through landscape features that cleanse the water of pollutants and trash before releasing it into the Los Angeles River. The park is landscaped with native vegetation, trees, a walking trail and an irrigation system. The greenway is lit with solar lights, and include bridges, drinking fountains and a bike stop for pedestrians. The park is open daytime hours, and is closed at night.

FJhnB-16uPv0M7V9F6-yfWFYyOvpHqR2cDqcaCAgFtoAlta Loft residents and those in the surrounding areas are now seeing a growing sense of community with this park’s completion.

When entering a negotiation if a purchaser rushes and shows impatience, it gives strength to the seller.  Our team has learned that, when possible, a buyer should use our proven strategies when placing offers and counteroffers to minimize the price.

lofts-downtown-la-douglas-cornerWhen a buyer shows that they have “their heart” set on a specific unit, the seller will use this to their advantage. ¬†Corey Chambers provides a strategy to buyers to prevent the sellers from knowing which unit they like best. ¬†

The best strategy is to remain open minded, have a list of wants for unit must-haves, parking and amenities.  When a loft conversion building gets completed and begins to sell to the public, many buyers will get in quickly to buy a specific unit.  In the past, our team has seen loft buildings sell out, and many of those properties are upside down because they overpaid.

Buyer’s MUST bring a Downtown specialist on the first visit, or the seller may notdowntown-la-lofts-exclusive allow the buyer to obtain proper representation. ¬†Once a buyer has chosen to formally represent themselves, the seller may not let them change their mind. ¬†The seller may act like they represent the buyer initially, and then later on, the paperwork will state that the buyer has chosen to represent themselves.

History and Renovation

Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #294

Directed by internationally acclaimed interior designer Kelly Wearstler Interior Design (kwid) and award-winning architectural firm Killefer Flammang Architects, the detailed redesign brought new polish to Eastern Columbia’s faceted beauty.

Eastern Columbia Building

“Eastern Columbia, Broadway at Ninth” – over several decades, the city’s airwaves chimed this jingle to advise Los Angeles shoppers of new arrivals and special offers at Downtown’s flagship department store. ¬†For years the tallest building on the area skyline, the Eastern Columbia Outfitting Company opened on September 12, 1930. ¬®Perhaps Los Angeles’ finest example of the Art Deco era’s zig zag moderne style, the Claude Beelman-designed tower has long captivated arts and architecture scholars. Faced in turquoise terra cotta and trimmed with deep blue and gold terra cotta, the tower’s fa√ßade features sunburst patterns, geometric shapes, zigzags, chevrons and other stylized motifs. A four-sided clock tower emblazoned in neon with the name EASTERN caps its thirteen stories.

After retail operations ceased in 1957, Eastern Columbia was transformed into studio and office space for local garment businesses and arts organizations. Among the tenants: the Los Angeles Conservancy and West Coast swimwear icon Jantzen. In fact, just up until residential conversions began, a fashion runway blazed through the building’s eleventh floor.
