Buyers are trying harder than ever to find a great deal on an amazing loft in Downtown Los Angeles lately because there are too many buyers and not enough lofts for sale. #dtla #loft #backonmarket
One often overlooked way to get access to desirable properties is by looking at pending listings, listings on hold, along with active listings under contract. That way, a home buyer can get a sense that other buyers like the property as well. When the property becomes Active again or says Back On Market, the buyer can ask the seller why the property fell out of escrow so that the buyer can decide if that is likely to be a problem for that buyer or perhaps a great fit.
Here is one shining example of an historic loft with Mills Act tax benefits that just fell out of escrow because the first time home buyer may have been skittish of buying in general, thus possibly quite afraid of HVAC (central air conditioning and heat) needing repairs. For this Back on Market Eckardt loft with a nice-sized balcony, the seller has already ordered the HOA-recommended A/C repair company to complete repairs by the end of next week. A more experienced or confident buyer will snap it up, protected by an easy contingency to make sure that the air conditioning gets repaired. Experienced buyers know how to take advantage of minor issues that beginner buyers might feel unsure about.

1, 2 and 3 Bedroom Condominiums Downtown Los Angeles #dtla #bedroom
While more than half of condos for sale in Downtown L.A. are industrial or commercial loft conversions, not everyone wants an all open loft with no bedroom doors. Many prefer the privacy, quiet and utility of a traditional or modern contemporary condominium unit with bedroom doors that close for privacy and quiet sleep. Some historic lofts also have bedrooms with doors that close, although they are quite rare. For those who want master bedrooms with master bathrooms, a traditional style contemporary condominium unit offers the best chances of finding this expected modern luxury. In addition to home search, the L.A. Loft Blog provides free help for prospective home buyers and renters to find just the right kind of place. Call (213) 880-9910 or use the form below.

SOLD HOMES – Knowing The Real Price of Properties #sold #dtla
One of the most common mistakes that consumers make in real estate and other resale transactions is paying too much attention to asking prices and not enough attention to recently sold comparable prices (comps). The listed price for real estate can be all over the place: too high, too low or just right. The only way to know for sure is by taking a look at listings of similar properties nearby that that recently sold and closed escrow. It’s helpful to know what sellers are asking for, but by knowing what buyers really paid of their hard-earned money, we can determine what a comparable property is really worth today, and how much we will really need to fork over of our precious funds. | RECENTLY SOLD
For new build homes, the comps are often not quite as accurate because new homes are generally more expensive than the average surrounding home. The new home is nice, beautiful and new, does not usually need much maintenance for years, and generally comes with a one year warranty. When River House recently sold out, some buyers paid the asking price (usually a mistake), while others offered a bit less and saved thousands of dollars. For example, a River House 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit sold last week for about asking price but the buyer was able to negotiate more than $10,000 of flooring and other incentives.
