The hottest trend in urban real estate today is historic live/work lofts. #millsact #dtla
Because many of the historic buildings, such as the Eckardt Building in Downtown Los Angeles, qualify for Mills Act tax benefits, living in an open space with high ceilings can pay dividends year after year in the form of dramatically reduced annual county property taxes. Most Mills Act home owners report usual savings around 66%, so they only pay about 1/3 of the property taxes. That’s around $5,000 per year less taxes paid for the average downtown Mills Act loft. While the savings may vary, as home values go up, the benefits go up, giving the average qualified Downtown historic loft owner a potential savings of well over $200,000 over a 30 year mortgage term. One cool Mills Act loft in the booming Historic Core neighborhood has a roomy balcony and is under $450,000. PHOTOS
