SB Grand

The SB Grand, also known as the Shybary Grand, was once among the most troubled condominium loft buildings in Downtown Los Angeles. Things have changed. The building that at one point could only be purchased for all cash (due to mixed-use commercial, high renter ratio, previous litigation and incomplete financials) can now be financed with as little as 10% down. #sbgrand #dtla

With glimmering new modern crystalline ceiling lamps in the now bright, uplifting lobby, the handsome historic building is now gazed upon fondly by the upper-crust patrons of the upscale rooftop restaurant lounge across the street called Perch.

Also known as the Shy Barry Grand, the building has its own notable rooftop with swimming pool, hot tub spa and sun deck with glorious views drenched in southern California sunshine. With some of the lowest homeowners association HOA dues of any downtown Los Angeles loft building, SB residents can add rented optional parking in the building and still pay less than the average HOA dues in downtown Los Angeles. Friendly 24-hour security front desk concierge, and countless walkable restaurants, bars, pubs, shopping, entertainment (and metro station right next-door), the SB Grand is unsurpassed in urban conveniences. Being on the path between Skid Row and the Pershing Square Metro Station, the building still suffers from a large number of homeless loitering and hubbub on the sidewalks outside, as well as the unusually large numbers of cigarette-flinging renters in the mixed-use condominium building. Those who enjoy urban environment and energy are very fond of the Shy Barry grand lofts. There is a nice-sized 860 sq ft live/work industrial-style open loft unit with high ceilings and balcony listed at $425,000.  DETAILS

Downtown Los Angeles Lofts with Balconies

While Downtown L.A. is among the best places to walk, it’s also very convenient to have a private outdoor space for pets, fresh air, relaxing, smoking or changing spaces to refresh and prevent a feeling of cabin fever. A balcony makes a condo bigger and better. Here are the best deals on lofts and condominiums with balconies and other private outdoor spaces.  #dtla #lofts #balcony

A balcony or terrace adds a lot of value to a condo. Many Downtowners feel that a private outdoor space is an absolute necessity for them, their dog or cat. It’s so nice to be able to walk right outside without walking through the entire building. With its added value, properties with balconies typically sell for more money than those without.

Downtown Los Angeles Homes For Sale – How to Buy an Off-Market Property

Unlisted Lofts, Pocket Listings and Off-Market Condos

Unlisted Lofts Downtown Los Angeles

Homes For Sale:  Many of the best deals on Downtown L.A. real estate for sale and for lease are not on the internet and not listed with real estate agents.  These off market properties include unlisted homes for sale, pocket listings, properties that are already in escrow, under contract, on hold, canceled, withdrawn or not yet listed for sale.  #unlisted #lofts #dtla

How to Buy an Off-Market Property

Many smart buyers make the mistake of missing out on just the right loft, condo or house because they never see the best deals. Even many experienced real estate agents are not good at dealing with these properties, simply writing them off as “already taken” and they will never show them to you. It’s important to see these properties and to take advantage of them. Take advantage of the fact that other buyers and agents do not know how to properly take the initiative to purchase off market properties.

Pocket listings and all other off-market homes can be found from unique sources with specialized knowledge and proprietary information on properties that are not listed on the real estate agents MLS and not on the Internet.

The source must be able and willing to provide these properties to the buyer, or the buyers need to find a source that is ready willing and able to provide all of the types of off market property information.

For properties that are on hold, expired, withdrawn or under contract, the first step is to contact the seller by telephone, text and email, and then provide the address, building name and/or neighborhood or cross streets of the property, along with the contact information and license number of the buyer’s agent.

The buyers agent and then must follow up with the seller the next day week month two months six months and one year.

The best deals go fast — and that’s why it’s important not only for buyers to get property listings sooner, quicker — and to thereby get off-market, unlisted and pocket listings. So, the secret is to properly follow-up on these superior properties that are better deals for the buyer, resulting in long-term happiness and a comfortable financial future that these special deals provide to their smart and fortunate owners.

Bunker Hill Breaks Out – The Once Stodgy Neighborhood is Turning Cool #lofts #dtla

Bunker Hill Tower Loft

What was a few years ago beginning to look like a gerontology ward is today turning stylish.  I remember a while back showing a unit for lease at Bunker Hill Tower condos to a young couple who were new to Downtown.  When they observed the people coming out of the building, including a gray guy walking, inching along very slow with his walker, my renter clients said “this is not the place for us.”

Built in 1968, the Bunker Hill Tower luxury condominium building is still largely maintained exceedingly well, and has an excellent reputation for quality.  But with its seasoned residents, dated rules (absolutely no dogs or cats), no washer and dryer in most units, the building and its surrounding neighborhood were utterly lacking the turn-of-the-century historic vibe, and devoid of the renaissance spirit that abounds in the Arts District and Historic Core neighborhoods of DTLA.

Today, that is changing.  Now, when walking into the Bunker Hill Tower, we are more likely to see more fresh faces of energetic artists. Along with that, more of the once outdated condominium interiors are getting revamped, renovated and remodeled to a modern style.  One such unit has been completely loftized, removing the old wall-to-wall carpet and replacing with a more desirable lofty original, polished concrete. The ordinary ceilings have been pushed up to create high ceilings.  The late 60’s apartment-style condo doldrum has been transformed into an exciting 2,200 sq ft open-concept loft.  With large high-end Sub-zero style stainless steel kitchen appliances, a sprawling modern 5-star hotel style bathroom, along with jetliner views, this condo unit has been aptly dubbed the “Bunker Hill Loft“.  Currently a top secret location, the unit will be revealed to the public soon at www.BunkerHillLoft.com

bunker-hill-metro-stationA new Bunker Hill Metro Station is under construction that will soon link the neighborhood to the Blue Line for a quick jaunt to the Arts District.  The station and connector line completes a 1.9-mile gap between the Metro Blue Line and the Metro Gold Line. It will also make for a faster trip to Long Beach or Santa Monica.  The brand new station will be located right by the Disney Concert Hall, Broad Museum and Bunker Hill Tower condo building.

Loft Inspection Companies Downtown Los Angeles

L.A. Loft Inspectors

loft-inspectors

ad-cp-inspection-ho-csiBefore buying or selling an industrial, commercial or live-work loft in Los Angeles, prospective home buyers and sellers should know about all of the issues regarding lofts in Downtown and Greater Los Angeles. Most real estate professionals are not familiar with lofts because they are relatively rare, as they are special exemptions to housing rules under the City of Los Angeles Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance. Because they have several differences, a loft specialist inspector is usually recommended so that the buyer can get the best information on what is wrong and what is right with the loft. Sellers also need to know what to do ahead of time to get a loft prepared to pass a home inspection before selling. Get a list of Downtown loft inspectors. Fill out the form at:

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Downtown Loft or Condo for Sale

Downtown – According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit www.LALoftInspect.com Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn’t cost you the sale of your home.
