Hi, I just got a new job downtown and am trying to move closer to work. I have a small dog and can afford to pay 1100/m. My credit is good and I don’t need parking or a swimming pool or anything fancy. Pretty much just a bathroom and a locking door. Do you know of any raw spaces that I could rent? Thanks for your help! — Jessica
Hi Jessica, Thank you for your email. I certainly wish that we could provide more help to renters with places for $1,100 per month. Unfortunately, the average recent Downtown lease is $2,750 and the lowest that we’ve seen in 6 months was $1,300 for 460 sq ft at 215 7TH ST #609. Our team is not aware of anything cheaper, and we are busy helping renters above the $2,800 range. Renters at $1,100 per month will likely need to rent a place outside of Downtown and find a roommate on Craigslist or Roommates.com. Here are some more resources to help renters find a good deal on a nice loft for lease in Downtown L.A.: #downtownlosangeles #apartments

What Our Clients Say:
Corey Chambers helped us to sell our home for 101% of asking price, all cash, 24% faster than the average sale in the building. Corey then helped us to find a larger home and to negotiate a fair price with repairs included. He was very responsive to calls and if he didn’t know the answer to a question that we had, he always found the answer out in a timely manner. We plan to use Corey again in future real estate transactions and highly recommend him to others especially if you are looking in the downtown area.

Corey is the best realtor I have worked with by far. He is the most intelligent, intuitive, resourceful and creative realtor I have ever encountered. I will recommend him to everyone I know without any hesitation. He has been so patient with me which I really appreciate and has always listened to me. He had real conversations with me weighing the pros and cons of different options. He never once lost patience or got frustrated. I wish we could have made a sale for him instead of a rental. But hopefully when we are ready to put it on the market again he will still be in the business and still want to work with us. I am so happy to have found Corey. Please keep up the good work and I know you will be rewarded for your kindness and generosity and patience.
Corey got me $30,000 more than I was asking for. The experience of selling my home was great and went very smoothly. I was told what to expect up front so there were no surprises.
More than half of the properties are historic and industrial loft conversions under the City of Los Angeles Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance. There are also single family residence houses for sale in neighborhoods adjacent to Downtown Los Angeles.
Condos converted from historic, commercial and industrial properties under the City of Los Angeles Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance are mostly live/work lofts for sale and for lease in DTLA. Live-work means that the owners and residents can use the property for both living and working. They can usually also use the spaces for live-only or work-only. Virtually all live work lofts have modern kitchens and bathrooms with bath tubs and/or showers for comfortable living. Most lofts do not have any traditional bedrooms. Most are totally open, and residents often partition the bed area with walls, dividers, curtains, cabinets or closets. There are also single family residence houses for sale in neighborhoods adjacent to Downtown Los Angeles in Lincoln Heights, Pico Union, Echo Park, Chinatown and Boyle Heights. | More nearby neighborhoods www.SoCalHomeBlog.com

REAL ESTATE NEWS – (Downtown LA) Here’s the new top ten list showing what the thousands of readers of the L.A. Loft Blog are searching for, interested in and looking at the most this week: #lofts #top10list
The L.A. Loft Blog and Corey Chambers posted an incorrect sold price on the property recently closed at 108 W 2nd St #705. The correct sold price was $396,000. Corey Chambers and the L.A. Loft Blog regret the error. Here’s the corrected sold ad graphic.
Anyone who is thinking about selling a home in the next 3-6 months needs to think about how the home will be presented to get the most money for it. Staging can increase the selling price of home by 1% to 3% or more. #staging #home #free
Most home sellers do not want to spend thousands of dollars to improve the look of the home. Fortunately, there’s a new promotion that offers free virtual staging so that home sellers can get the most money for the home by making it look its best. First impressions are always the most important, so virtual staging gives the best vision up front of how good a home can look when a professional interior designer chooses the best furniture fit and decor style to enhance the property. Best of all, the service is free for qualified home sellers and buyers.
Take a look at these virtually staged photos above and below versus the vacant photo on the right. This is an actual unit for sale in the Shybary Grand loft building, a pocket listing that is a special deal asking $400,000 for 680 sq ft of open live/work space with private balcony. The seller wants to attract cash buyers and pre-approved buyers only so that the general public is not traipsing through the home. The vacant photos appears comparatively incomplete and abandoned, while the unit is actually just bit too cluttered to show its current state. Contrast that with the virtual staged photos, which give the more accurate impression that people can really enjoy living in the property.
It’s one the biggest opportunities in Downtown L.A. real estate: #pocketlisings #dtla
Many off-market condominiums and other properties for sale are not listed on the internet, and not listed with any real estate agents. These pocket listings can give buyers several advantages when finding out about lofts before the general public nabs them.
A broker may hold a signed listing agreement with the seller, but the property is not advertised, not entered into the real estate professional multiple listing system (MLS). Sellers often want more privacy, and a pocket listing allows the seller to limit how many people find out about the property, visit the property and place offers on the property. This is helpful for a seller who wants to make their home selling process easier or who does not want many unqualified buyers browsing through their home.
Pocket listings can be very appealing to buyers who seek exclusive opportunities. By lowering the number of competing buyers, pocket listings can give the informed buyers an extra advantage when searching for real estate that is not advertised anywhere else. These more private deals can give the buyer and seller a faster, smoother transaction when the listing agent has buyer clients who may be interested in the property.

Downtown is dangerous! That has been occasionally true, especially when visitors and residents do not have all of the best information. Living and working in Downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods can be quite safe, efficient and really fun when we have access to the right knowledge. Providing accurate information is of paramount importance to buyer, sellers, renters, landlords and real estate professionals. #lofts #millsact
Because lofts are among the more complicated properties to deal with, they can be more difficult to figure out, and more challenging to understand. Involved with tough issues such as the Los Angeles Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance, Mills Act, lawsuits, litigation, unwarrantable buildings, incomplete financials, dwindling reserves, lending issues, FHA/VA conflicts, homeless issues, lawlessness neighborhoods, live/work designation confusion, special assessments, new construction, changing skylines, rapid growth, gentrification — just to name a few issues, lofts can be quite a handful as far as providing and receiving accurate information.
Take Alta Lofts as a recent example. A for sale listing recently stated that Alta Lofts is a Mills Act approved historic loft building, which it most certainly is not. Being an Alta lofts resident, I pay county property taxes on the property, have been involved with more than 10 transactions in the building, and I’m an Alta loft specialist real estate professional. Only approved historic buildings with original facade and windows intact are eligible for Mills Act tax benefits. Prospective residents should check with an attorney, tax professional and Los Angeles County regarding Mills Act.
Sellers are required to provide accurate information and to disclose any information about conditions that could affect the value of the home. Some sellers wrongly believe that they can get more money for the property and protect themselves by using an out-of-area agent to sell the home because the agent does not know about all of the downsides and defects. The reverse is true of course. A local specialist who knows the pros and cons of the building can protect the seller by properly disclosing information and by correctly selling the benefits of the property and the upsides of its condition. A local specialist real estate professional is the best protection for a buyer as well, and the buyer can get the very best assistance at no cost to the buyer because the seller pays for the buyer’s agent.
To avoid buying, renting or selling a property with inaccurate information, prospective residents can also request any type of information free from the L.A. Loft Blog. Fill out my online form. Fill out the online form:
