How Many Amazing Lofts Will You Lose? Downtown L.A. Dream or Disaster?
How would you like an amazing Downtown Los Angeles loft that more than doubles in value in less than 2 years? How would you like to lose an amazing L.A. loft that could have been a life-changing investment? Many of my clients and I have enjoyed experiences closer to the first story, the happy story. At the same time, I have had to see many others experience the second story, the unhappy story. What makes the difference between the happy loft story and the unhappy story? The difference between the winners and losers boils down to resources. Anyone who does not have millions needs to use all of the most powerful free resources. The most powerful free resource for buyers is the Downtown specialist Realtor(R) who has access to more properties, more information about the properties, and more knowledge about the Downtown loft market.
As more and more buyers try to purchase lofts in Downtown, we are hearing more and more sad stories of buyers who have already been priced out of the market. Many others place offers on a nice loft, only to be outbid or outmaneuvered by another buyer. They lose their dream loft. Another couple of buyers searched for a long time, and when they finally placed their offer on the same day of the listing date, the agent completed the paperwork and got it back to them that night. The offer got to the seller the very next morning, but the seller had already accepted another offer. They had seen that happen once before. The best lofts seem to be sold sometimes before they are listed. This is not their imagination. Many of the best lofts really are sold before they are listed. This is called a “pocket listing” or an unlisted property. The buyers who buy the lofts before they are listed are called VIP buyers.
One happy buyer — we will call him Jeff Mason to protect his privacy — just sent me an email thanking me for helping him to buy a loft that more than doubled in value in two years, along with a comp listings showing a similar loft that just sold for more than twice what he paid for his loft. How did Jeff do it?
Another buyer — we will call him Robert Gallagher — is in escrow now with resale Barker Block for thousands less than other Barker Block lofts. He only has 10% down, but was able to buy the most desirable loft unit in Downtown with resort-level amenities, low HOA dues, in the coolest neighborhood in the world. He was able to see the property before it was listed on the MLS. How was Robert able to do it? Robert had already lost one unit before. He is a quick learner, and he found the #1 loft specialist buyer’s agent in Downtown, which cost him nothing. The agent offered Robert access to the largest number of pocket listings and other unlisted properties. At no cost, Robert joined the VIP buyer program to gain access to the pocket listings. Robert was notified by his new agent about a pocket listing in the prized Barker Block building. Robert was notified, and this time he was the one who was able to see the unit before it was listed, and place an offer before the other buyers were able to. Rob learned how to go from being the guy who watched other buyers steal his dream loft, and even though he only has 10% down, he is now the VIP buyer who was able to buy a dream loft before other buyers ever knew it existed. This time, it was the other buyers who lost out, not Robert.
The biggest secret in Downtown is pocket listings and other unlisted properties. Knowing about unlisted properties is the first step. There are many other advantages that buyers absolutely need in order to get maximum advantage. Buyers need access to the largest number of foreclosures, bank owned, company owned, REO, short sales, fixers, raw lofts and other distressed properties. To get the lowest price, the buyer must use a Downtown specialist agent who knows what lofts in the building sold for less than 30 days ago. The agent must know the boldest, most powerful strategies that are required to help the average buyer beat out wealthy international cash buyers who are trying to buy the same unit. Using an out-of-area agent is just not worth it. It is simply not worth it to use an agent who does not have access to the very largest number of pocket listings and unlisted properties in Downtown. To get every advantage, Buyer’s absolutely must join the VIP buyer’s program to work with the buyer’s agent team with the largest number of pocket listings in Downtown.
Prices have risen. The number of buyers has increased. The number of easy bargains has decreased. The average buyer today is getting crushed by wealthy investors, cash buyers, and VIP buyers who are buying the property before the average buyer sees it. It is no longer effective to be the average buyer. Every buyer must use the most powerful free tools available.
