At 901 S. Grand Avenue, a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom luxury loft with a view was just listed on the MLS.  Nothing wrong with the listed one, except it is somewhat closed in with ordinary doors, and has used carpet in the bedrooms.

Sometimes the better deal is the property that most buyers are unaware of. For $36,000 less, there is a more attractive unlisted loft with hand-scraped hardwood floors, more openness, designer bedroom sliding doors, more style, 40 recessed ceiling lights, standard and blackout window shades, along with other upgrades.  Both of the Sky Lofts share nearly identical  unobstructed panoramic views.  See the unlisted Sky Loft at SkyLoftLA.com.

Pan American Lofts Downtown L.A. 253 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Built in 1895, the Pan American lofts building is one of the oldest buildings, and was one of the first office buildings in downtown Los Angeles.

Lofts in Downtown Los Angeles - Pan American Loft building
Pan American Loft building distressed properties

In the heart of Los Angeles’ historic Old Bank district, near the Civic Center and Bunker Hill, the Pan American Lofts provide a unique kind of live-work space for Downtowners.

With stylish, modern interiors, the Pan American Lofts boast bamboo floors (select units), original exposed brick and concrete walls, 12′ to 17′ ceiling height, copious windows and natural light, high-end stainless steel appliances, controlled-access underground parking, interior courtyard, juliette balconies or private decks (select units).

Several of the units have no parking space, and the west-facing paid parking lot is possibly a prime candidate to become a view-blocking highrise structure.

Properties with certain unusual issues can sometimes present an unique opportunity to get a good deal.  Buyers can request a hotlist of distress sales and bank foreclosures for Pan American and other downtown lofts.

Distress Sales resulting from bank foreclosures often represent a great way to get a fantastic deal on a loft. It’s not easy for the average loft buyer to find these deals, because you have to keep searching to see when one comes up.  Prospective buyers can request a free copy at LAcondoInfo.com

Downtown Pocket Listings

Many Downtown loft seekers never see all of the properties for sale because they do not know how to gain access to unlisted lofts and condos called “pockets listings.” Most buyers, agents and brokers are unaware, and they do not have access to these special deals.

A pocket listing is a type of exclusive property for sale where a broker holds a signed listing agreement with the seller, but where it is never advertised nor entered into a multiple listing system (MLS), or where advertising is limited for an agreed-upon period of time.  The reasons for a pocket listing may vary from the need for privacy or secrecy to discrimination, and some sellers may have their own reasons for not advertising a listing in conventional ways, including wanting to sell only to certain types of people.

Pocket Listings Sold in Downtown LA

Pocket listings may give buyers an extra advantage when searching for real estate which is not advertised anywhere else.  The transaction typically only has one real estate agent, thus potentially lowering the overall commission costs.  If the buyer’s objective is to look at all the available homes for sale in a given area, they would need to look at MLS and all private listings for sale.

Read the entire Wikipedia article about Pocket Listings at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_listing

In Downtown LA, pocket listings are a significant factor in the success of many buyers and sellers.  Realtor Corey Chambers reports that 45% of his buyer clients purchased pocket listings over the past 2 years.  And more than 80% of his team’s seller clients opted to keep the property off of the public market as a pocket listings for at least a short time in order to appeal to more fully qualified VIP buyers who are seeking extraordinary opportunities.

It’s easy to gain access! Buyers can request free access to the largest number of pocket listings, other unlisted properties and bargains with the pocket listing specialists at LAcondoInfo.com

Market Lofts Los Angeles – The Real Story on the Convenient Condos

Market Lofts Los Angeles – The Real Story on the Convenient Condos

Market Lofts Los Angeles
Market Lofts is one of many properties in Downtown with recent litigation issues. A Downtown specialist Realtor is able to help.

Convenience…  that is what Market Lofts is all about.  Located between South Park and the Financial District, Market Lofts are convenient condominiums in the most convenient location in Downtown, with all kinds of food and entertainment just steps away.  Parking for most units is on the same floor of the condominium unit.  The new center of the universe is less than two blocks away at L.A. Live.  Downtown’s world reknown Restaurant Row is less than four blocks away, as is the Metro station.

Market Lofts owners say that they love the very quiet, nice location.  Owners find that the security concierge is helpful and they really like the building manager Paulette.

Market Lofts owners like the selection at Ralphs market, and they like to walk to see movies just two blocks away at L.A. Live.

Others say Market Lofts are too small, and they have no “charm” at all.  They say that the only reason to buy would be price. Some have commented that they are also very noisy , and that you can hear everything from surrounding units.  Some complain of ugly common areas, ugly lobby and boring pool area. But, everyone agrees that it is pretty cool having Ralph’s market downstairs

Those who might like Market Lofts can beat out other buyers to new Market Lofts listings and unlisted Market Lofts.  Prospective buyers can receive priority access to ALL new listings that match their home buying criteria at LAcondoInfo.com
