Avoid 6 Costly Errors When Moving to a Larger Home and Save Thousands
Unlike the experience of buying a first home, when you’re looking to move-up, and already own a home, there are certain factors that can complicate the situation. It’s very important for you to consider these issues before you list your home for sale. Not only is there the issue of financing to consider, but you also have to sell your present home at exactly the right time in order to avoid either the financial burden of owning two homes or, just as bad, the dilemma of having no place to live during the gap between closings.

FIXER UPPERS: MYTHS AND FACTS
Fixer Uppers and handyman specials often represent a great way to get a fantastic deal on a home. As you are aware these homes often need work but if you are able and willing to do some of the work yourself, you could have an ideal home for much less than other comparable homes on the market that are already in showcase condition.
If you’re the type of person who recognizes a “diamond in the rough” you’ll know “a great deal when you see one” and you will be interested to know about a new, free Home-Hunter Service which automatically searches out and downloads a current list or properties – day in and day out.
This Service specializes in researching and providing you with the latest information about the very best buys of homes currently on the market that you can buy with little or no money down.
The unique and automated Home-Hunter Service enables you to get priority access to the hottest, new listings giving you the competitive edge so that you can save thousands of dollars by finding the best buys before other buyers even know about them. By being there first you’ll be able to negotiate to get the most home for the least amount of money. After all, the best deals get snapped up quickly by smart buyers like you.
Here’s how it works. Every evening a computerized system searches through all new listings from every real estate company, not just the L.A. Loft Blog, that have been listed in the past 24 hours. Real estate professionals review each and every one of these listings in order to find the best buys on the market. From this, we print out a comprehensive “Hot List” which we provide to you free of charge and without obligation.
For example, right now the “Hot List” identifies a number of large fixer upper properties in great neighborhoods that, with a little tender loving care, can become real gems. Because these homes require some work, you can turn any one of these handyman specials into a home that will present itself in showcase perfection for a lot less money than if you purchased such a home in pristine condition to begin with.
The Fixer Upper “Hot List” will help you identify the best buys on the market right now that are in your desired price range and location. This is offered as a FREE community service to help you save money, time and the inconvenience of searching for just the right property on your own. Remember, the service offers you a way to beat out other buyers before they even know about these listings, saving you up to thousands of dollars so that you can get the most home for the least amount of money. Buyers love this free Home-Hunter Service because it doesn’t cost them anything to get all the information they need, hassle-free and without feeling obligated.

RealtySource Inc presents
New Los Angeles Metropolis Condominium Prices
Special Preview of the Preliminary Price List
The actual price list has not yet been printed for the new super luxury Downtown highrise condos now under construction, but the L.A. Loft Blog has a special preview of the preliminary prices not yet released to the public. Monthly HOA dues are expected to be around 90 cents per sq ft. These prices are not official prices, and they are subject to change. The smallest 526 sq ft studio is around $511,000, while the largest 1,720 sq ft 2-bedroom is about $1,576,000. These are selling out now. Get on the new condos interest list at https://laloft.wufoo.com/forms/metropolis-los-angeles-new-condos-interest-list/ Below are the preliminary prices:
If the economy continues to improve, the prices are likely to go up. Savvy buyers and investors will take advantage of the risk-free early incentives to try to lock in an expected profit with the opportunity to cancel and get a full refund if desired. This strategy is usually in the buyer’s favor as the buyer may gain significant equity before actually committing to buying the property.
The developer recently began accepting deposits, and was offering $10,000 off the list price for the refundable early deposits with no obligation to buy during the construction process. That has apparently changed. A broker certificate for $2,000 off buyer closing costs is available from RealtySource Inc for qualified VIP buyers.
