LEASE LOFT DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – A Case Study of Lease Listing at Alta Lofts

RENTING OUT YOUR LOFT DOWNTOWN IN LOS ANGELES:
A Case Study of Lease Listing at Alta Lofts

Brian L. requested purchase comps for his 2-story Alta Lofts condominium unit in April of 2013.

Brian received flyers on various Alta Loft units for sale and wanted to know what Realtor(R) Corey Chambers thought Brian’s 1,689 sq ft, 1.5 bath loft unit would sell for or lease for. Brian asked Corey: “If I decided to sell my loft, would you represent me?”

All loft buildings have issues.  Alta Lofts has some unique challenges that must be overcome by an Alta specialist real estate professional; these issues include Lincoln Heights neighborhood issues, expiration of FHA approval, unfinanceability by most home lenders, limited comps, etc. For several years, and including more than 25 transactions completed here, our team has continuously marketed Alta Lofts, attracting prospective buyers nearly every day with our several websites including AltaLoft.com and AltaLofts.info, and many of our other marketing components that are dedicated to Alta Lofts.

Based on the comps, the suggested asking price for a typical 1700 sq ft Alta loft is around $470,00 to $500,000. The proven success of an experienced team’s knowledge and marketing structure can provide the best opportunity for a seller to get full market price or more for his property. The agent then makes an appointment to take a look at the loft and then give the specifics about the loft.

The unit comes with 1 parking space.  Major appliances are included, and furniture is optional.  Suggested asking rent is $2,100 to $2,400 per month or $2,500 to $2,800 furnished.  The furniture is not bad, but not particularly stylish either.  95% of renters have their own furniture.  Very few renters are seeking furnished condos.

The listing agent advertises to find applicants and attract lease offers.  The listing agent  runs the credit reports with background check for each adult resident.  The applicant pays for the credit reports. The new tenant usually pays one month rent plus refundable security deposit equal to one month rent.  They will be submitted to the owner along with the applicant’s offer.  The offer will include the desired lease terms such as desired move-in date, length of lease, rent amount, deposit amount, desired furnishings etc.

The Alts unit received several offers, the first two offers fell out of negotiations.  The third offer was a charm: a 2-year lease by a two nice guys with good credit.

Downtown Los Angeles: 10 Ways to Save Money When Buying a New Loft

Downtown Los Angeles: 10 Ways to Save Money When Buying a New Loft

Downtown Los Angeles – Although most lofts and condos for sale are resales, one out of four homebuyers purchases a new loft. Which is better: existing or new? The right answer, of course, is up to you. Both resales and new homes offer advantages. Existing lofts are less expensive on average, and generally offer more opportunity to customize and upgrade to the buyer’s exact preferences.

Looking at Lofts For Sale in Downtown Los Angeles

Most who call our team are just getting started looking at properties for themselves.  When buyers are ready to start seeing properties in Downtown, they are ready to get free help from a Downtown specialist Realtor(R) who knows the loft and buildings in Downtown L.A., and who has privileged access to more hot deals in Downtown including foreclosures and unlisted properties.  The consultation is always free of charge, and there is never any obligation.

Downtown Sky Loft w/ View
Downtown Sky Loft w/ View

Successful buyers want to see all of the properties that match their criteria.  Our team shows short sales, foreclosures, bank owned, company owned and unlisted properties.  In the free buyer consultation, buyers receive valuable free information from our team, such as what are the most common buyer disasters that happen in Downtown real estate, and how we help to prevent them.  We go over issues in Downtown such as financing challenges in loft buildings, and lawsuits in many Downtown buildings.  We provide information about the neighborhoods, such as the Financial District, South Park, Historic Core, Little Tokyo and the Arts District.

Before seeing the buildings and lofts, I provide detailed information about the building.  A Downtown specialist can give valuable details about the building, including information about pricing, how the HOA dues compare to the average HOA dues in Downtown, the unique parking situation of the building and neighborhood, the amenities of the building, the finishes and view of the building.  Most poignantly, our team provides do-or-die details about the building.

Our team takes seriously our responsibility to give priority to our clients.  Our clients are best cared for when I refuse to help buyers who are competing against my clients for the purchase in the very small inventory of Downtown lofts.

My hundreds of successful clients have chosen me because I am the best Downtown specialist Realtor(R) to help them find the best deal on the best Downtown loft.

Our team has been helping buyers to find lofts in Downtown Los Angeles for more than 10 years.  As a Downtown loft specialist and writer of the L.A. Loft Blog, I write articles about lofts, buildings and neighborhoods in Downtown every day.  The blog posts include details about buying, selling, investing and living in Downtown.  When I cannot help a buyer or seller, I’m always happy to provide referrals to other team members or another appropriate real estate professional.

Our team lives and works in live-work lofts.  Lofts are not for everyone. Lofts have drawbacks.  Lofts were not purposefully built for humans to live in.  They were built as office or industrial spaces.  One of the offices where we meet clients is a huge 2-story live-work loft at Flower Street lofts where 1 couple lives and 11 agents work.  I bought a large 2-story Alta live-work loft where I live.  Lofts are not perfect, but we love lofts.  We love Downtown Los Angeles that is why we live and work here.

How to Avoid the Biggest Downtown Loft Disasters

The Biggest Downtown Loft Disasters, and How to Avoid Them

sb-grand-for-sale
Downtown Loft Buildings Involved with Lawsuits

The #1 disaster in Downtown real estate is caused by using an out of area agent instead of a Downtown specialist Realtor who is well informed about the unique buildings and issues in Downtown.

The most common disaster that we see for buyer and sellers using out-of-area agents is that the agent does not know what properties just sold in the past few weeks, so the buyer either pays too much or the buyer does not offer enough and loses their dream loft to a more experience Downtown buyer/agent.  The out-of-area agent has a very clumsy time just trying to get into the different buildings in Downtown.  After a very clumsy and exhausting process, the buyer finally gets into an escrow on an acceptable loft, makes it all the way to the end of the escrow period, and then the home loan company finally checks the building and promptly notifies the buyer with a phone call, “of course we cannot lend on this building.  This is an industrial or commercial building.  We only do residential loans.”  The buyer is devastated by this final straw.  The buyer must either pay $100 per day while a loft lender tries to re-do the loan, or the transaction fails and the buyer loses another desirable property.  This is the #1 most common preventable disaster in Downtown.

Our office receives phone calls from remorseful buyers all the the time who used an out-of-area agent who did not really know the investment value of the loft and did not understand the lawsuits and other problems with Downtown lofts.  The last buyer that I spoke to who purchased a new development directly from the sales office did not know anything about the two lawsuits against the developer, lost parking, future parking problems and health hazards in the neighborhood.  The buyer also had no idea that there were cheaper alternatives in the same complex.  Meanwhile, another buyer who used the #1 Downtown loft specialist team was in escrow with an amazing resale loft in the same complex, an unadvertised pocket listing for $50,000 less than the loft purchased from the sales office.

There are numerous other unique issues affecting the Purchase or Leasing of Lofts, Condos, and Apartments in the Downtown Los Angeles area. The following are some unique issues for Downtown:

1. Noise and Traffic Issues: Some lofts and condos may be affected by Noise and the inconvenience of Traffic as a result ofthe congestion in the Downtown Los Angeles area. NumerousFreeways also impact living in the Downtown Los Angeles area

2. Air Quality: The air quality in the Downtown LosAngeles area is generally of less quality and more harmful than areas outside of the Downtown Los Angeles area as a result of Automobile Exhaust, Factory Pollution, etc.

3. Mills Act Properties: Certain properties in the Downtown Los Angeles area are affected by the Mills Act Historical Property Program which affects Property Taxes and also involves many Historic Preservation Restrictions.  Many buyers do not understand how the Mills Act may or may not save them money on county property taxes.

4. Views: New building projects may block or alter theviews of existing property in the Downtown Los Angeles area. Buyer/Renter cannot rely on the continuation of any particularview after the Purchase/Lease of any real property.

5. Public Transportation: Current and future public transportation projects, such as new Metro stations etc, may interfere with the quality of life in the Downtown Los Angeles area as a result of added Noise, Pollution, and Congestion.

Most Home Loans Fail
Home Loans Fail for Downtown Lofts

6. Mixed Use Buildings: Many residential units such as“Lofts” and “Condominiums” are located in buildings that were originally built for Other Purposes such as Manufacturing, Warehouse, Retail, Office Space, and Other Uses. As such, there may be an Added Risk of Toxic Contamination in such residential units. Also, new businesses move into such buildings from time to time which may adversely affect the property value of the residential units.

7. Older Buildings: Many older buildings were converted into residential towers, and many of the Original Construction Defects remain if the developer did not correct such Original Defects. For example, Facades of some older buildings have fallen off, Foundations may be defective, Sound-Proofing isoften inadequate, Roof Leakage, Asbestos found in original building areas, Elevators whose manufacturers do not honor the warranties, Floors shifting after construction completion, Bugsfound in wood flooring, etc.

8. Developer Bankruptcy: There are cases in which developers have filed for Bankruptcy after the sale of a buildingis completed and certain amenities were discontinued after aBuyer or Tenant has moved in. Keller Williams, its Broker andAgents, make no claims regarding a Developer’s reputation. Also,reputations of Developers can change over time and may affect thevalue of a building.

Other issues plague buyers who purchase a Downtown loft without using a Downtown specialist Realtor, including Inadequate Parking, Missed Tax Savings, Reduced Quality of Life, City Code and Permit Issues, Misreporting of Square Footage, Upside-Down Owners, High Renter Ratios, Proximity to Homeless and Mentally Ill.

For sellers, many loft sales often fail because the seller uses an out-of-area agent who is not familiar with loft loan and lawsuit issues, and the agent does not know how to properly explain and help with some of the issues and prevent problems with Downtown loft transactions.

For buyers, it is free to get assistance from a Downtown Specialist team with the most experience in helping to prevent these all-too-common disasters.  Call Corey Chambers (213) 478-0499 to get started on the right path to a Downtown home purchase.
