Downtown Homesellers

When it comes time for you to choose a real estate agent, you’ll trust the handle of sale of your loft or condo, you’ll need to choose very carefully. In this special article, we’ll be sharing with you good and timely information on the home selling process so you can make the best possible decision when selling your home. We’ll also be sharing with you a truly unique home selling system that’s different and better than what’s being offered by other area real estate agents.  In fact, by the end of this article, you’ll realize that you’re lucky to be selling a loft or condo here in Downtown Los Angeles, because you can hire local real estate agent, Corey Chambers, the inventor of a world-renowned real estate selling system, to find more money in less time with less hassle. Not only have Corey and his team used this system with great success locally, but over 18,000 real estate agents from across North America pay to license this same system to better serve their clients in their marketplaces.

Corey Chambers’ credentials as a real estate agent are impressive. In fact, Corey has been the number one home seller in the entire Greater Greater Los Angeles Area out of all the agents from all the companies. He’s been one of the Top 10 Entar 5-Star agents worldwide, and, as a Craig Proctor Platinum Agent, in the Top 300 out of over 100,000 Realtors for the past 3 years.  Corey has helped over 4,000 families to search, buy, sell or lease a home. With many coming to him after having horrible experiences, false starts, and long delays to now enjoying the kind of smooth experience that occurs when working with a true professional. Now let’s find out more about Corey Chambers, how and why using him and his team will help make you sell your home for money in less time with a lot less hassle.

Corey Chambers: “My success has come from not doing the same old things that other real estate agents are doing. I found I had to go outside of the real estate industry to find the answers. I really wanted to find a better way, a more innovative way to serve my clients.”
Corey Chambers has been one of the top Entar 5-Star agents in the world. He began his career in 2000, helping renters with online information and videos about lofts in Downtown L.A. Real estate and Entar 5-Star are a family tradition for Corey, as he followed in his father Bill’s footsteps into real estate by becoming a Entar 5-Star agent.
Both Bill and Corey still work for the same Entar 5-Star franchise, becoming the number one agent within the Entar 5-Star organization in 2014. It was just the beginning of a stellar career in real estate. Since then, Corey Chambers has been a fixture in the top 10 list for Entar 5-Star and has gone on to receive not only the Platinum Award, but also the Capper Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award. He and his team have consistently closed hundreds of transactions over recent years. Arguably, no other Entar 5-Star agent in the past 5 years has consistently excelled to the level he has. Corey Chambers has been featured in many national and local publications, as well as on radio.

Now that you have some background on Corey Chambers, you may be thinking to yourself, “Good for Corey,” but you may also be thinking, “How does Corey’s success benefit me?” The bottom line is Corey’s success means your success because Corey and his team sell a lot more homes in the area than their competitors. Financially, they can do more and spend more money to advertise and market your home, including offer you innovative consumer programs that not only make your home selling process easier, but are designed to increase what you get in your pocket when your home is sold.

Loft Seller Testimonial: Corey Chambers helped us sell our unit in the Alta lofts. We were the first resale in the building. The amount of time it took for us to sell is just shy of 30 days and he got us $60,000 more than we were asking for. The comps in the area were not very good for us, but because we had an all cash offer, it worked out great for us. I would recommend Corey Chambers to anyone selling in the L.A. area. He is the best agent we’ve had, and a great representative. Because of our sale with Corey Chambers, we were able to put 20% down on a new purchase. We are currently in the Fullerton area, and we love it. Without Corey, we would not have such a stable financial situation with the 20% down. We are very grateful to Corey.  — Olga Theodossis, Homeland Security Professional

What's Your Loft Worth? Free quick, online home evaluation

It may surprise you to learn that 69% of home sellers do not go back with their past real estate agent to do another transaction. Some of the top reasons that people cite as to why they wouldn’t use the same agent again include poor communication, the agent promised a selling price or speed of sale that was unrealistic.  Another complaint is the agent wasn’t experienced or perhaps was less experienced than he or she represented themselves to be and had later became apparent. The agent wasted a lot of his client’s time, showing the home to a lot of unqualified buyers.  Many complain the agent didn’t do enough, didn’t advertise, or didn’t get the home presented to other agents and he or she basically just stuck a sign on the lawn and placed it on a multiple listing service. We asked Corey what makes working with him different? Corey Chambers responds, “It’s true many people

think that all real estate agents are the same. While it’s true that we do some of the same things, we’re certainly not all the same. We have to understand that most people don’t go through this process of selling their home many times in their lives, because it’s not something that people think too much about. There really is that misconception. This would be like saying that all doctors and all hospitals do basically the same things. For example, some hospitals have a much higher success rate with heart operations than other hospitals. then there’s world class doctors that people would travel thousands of miles to see. Then there’s other doctors who struggle to get enough patients to eke out a living in their own hometowns,” states Corey, “When you hire me, get me and my elite team of top producing agents and expert assistants for the same price as hiring a single agent that works all by themselves. My team is trained, coaches, and personally supervised daily by me. You’ve got all these working together to get your home sold so nothing is missed.

Unlike other real estate agents who work all by themselves, who are distracted by the dozens of essential activities that have to get done to get a home sold, we are organized and equipped to efficiently and successfully manage a lot of transactions, yet have each one of our clients feel as if they’re the only client,” Corey continues; “There’s really no need for you to compromise. There’s no reason at all to sacrifice having the most successful real estate selling machine working for you and, at the same time, get personalized VIP treatment. AS well as my team, I built a complete marketing and client service system that’s designed not to disappoint my customers.”

I used Corey Chambers as my Realtor to sell my condo, and it worked out great. He had written guarantees to sell the place. I wanted about $380,000 for it, and he was able to get me $415,000 — which was amazing — I was not expecting that much! It was simple. Every time I had a question, he got right back to me and answered it, and it worked out great. I’m very happy. — Joyce Yeich, Television Production Designer

Downtown Los Angeles Homes Sold Prices

If you’re thinking that your choice of agent really isn’t that important, consider this: according to the Greater Los Angeles Real Estate Board, only 58.6% of properties listed are sold within the term of the agent’s listing contract. That’s in a hot market. 42% – that’s 4 out of 10 home sellers that were disappointed. However, during this same time period, Corey Chambers and his team sold 86.7% of their listing. That’s nearly 9 out of every 10 of his clients that experienced a successful result. Corey Chambers puts his money where his mouth is. Corey will even guarantee to buy your home himself if he can’t sell it.

Corey says “It’s my guaranteed sales program that really, really sets me apart from my competitors. You see, when you list your home with me, I give you an upfront guarantee in writing that I will sell your existing home for the pre-agreed price or more during the term of the listing, or I will buy it myself. Some conditions do apply, but with this guarantee, I am the one that takes the risk, not you. With this program, you’ll never ever get stuck owning 2 homes, he continues, “Frankly, the reason I’m able to make this commitment to my sellers is because my homes sell. That should give you a peace of mind, knowing that when you list your home with me, your home will be sold.

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.  —  Lauren Han, Attorney

Corey Chambers and his team will also give you a communications guarantee, where you’ll receive a weekly update phone call on the progress of the sale of your home and honest promises guarantee, where they’ll tell you exactly what they can and will do, exactly how they operate in upfront, clear language, a reality-based selling price range. Corey and his team will get you top dollar. Their track record and statistics prove this. They don’t play the bait and switch game of promising you a wholly unrealistic price just to get your listing.

A realty-based time table: Corey and his team implement a complete marketing system to sell your home. You’d know in advance what will occur step-by-step and you’ll receive weekly marketing updates. Together, you and the team set a target range for the timing of the successful sale of your home. They’d give you an honest presentation of experience and track records.  Finally, they’d get you a qualified buyer guarantee. They guarantee not to waste your time to show your home to unqualified buyers.

Corey Chambers: “With these guarantees, we set ourselves apart from all of our competitors by being accountable to you.”

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.   —  Tammy Johnson and Mike Barker

Your Home Sold GUARANTEED or I'll Buy It* -- Corey Chambers
Corey Has the Buyers for Downtown Los Angeles

Corey Chambers and his team use 16 different key systems to market your home. Of the 16, many agents do 2 of them. Some agents might do 4 or 5 of them. But hardly anybody even tries to do all 16. This is really important because more marketing, more diversified marketing cast a bigger net to a bigger pool of potential buyers, which causes home sellers to sell their homes for more money and sell them faster. A team approach, complete marketing, and customer service. Corey is not the type of agent who sticks a sign out on your lawn and puts your property on the MLS – the multiple listing service – and prays that it will sell.  Corey actually spends thousands of dollars advertising his listings directly to buyers to make it easy for them to get information on your home. This is accomplished with Corey Chambers’s exclusive city-wide buyers network and buyers-in-waiting program – both developed by Corey.

How does it work? Because of a large volume of listings that Corey Chambers and his team have at any one time, top producing agents in the marketplace, particularly those who are predominantly buyer’s agents and represent buyers, pay close attention to Corey Chambers and his listings.  As part of Corey Chambers’s exclusive city-wide buyers network, these real estate agents know that when they sell homes listed and represented by Corey and his team, every “I” has been dotted and every “T” crossed. They know their buyer will have a smooth, fail-safe experience with Corey’s team. Corey maintains a close working relationship with these agents and investors. They welcome his e-mail and text alerts of the newest homes he has available.

Corey Chambers: “When I pull the trigger on your listing, when everything is 100% market-ready, this entire exclusive network of agents representing, at any given moment, hundreds of buyers that are searching for their next home will automatically receive information on your property.  With my buyers-in-waiting program, where we spend a substantial amount of money, time, and energy in maintaining this large list of buyers waiting to hear from my team that we have found the perfect home for them. It’s almost as if we’ve been looking for a buyer for your home before we even list it for sale.  This is just an example of the programs that I have in place to sell your home faster and for more money.”

Corey Chambers was the first real estate agent in the area to give his clients access to a free 24-hour talking ad service. That gives him the ability to listen to recorded real estate information 24/7 on any home that interests them without talking to a real estate sales person. Because of this, Corey and his team have discovered they are actually able to triple the number of inquiries on their client’s home. More buyers means more money.

Another of Corey Chambers’s innovative consumer programs is his unique Sunday Tour of Homes. Corey has revolutionized the traditional open property. Instead of taking clients out of their home for 3 or 4 hours, he’s pioneered what he calls the Sunday Tour of Homes.
Here’s how it works: each home is open for only 10 minutes and then there is 10 minutes travel time to the next property, and so on, throughout the afternoon.

Corey Chambers: “More than just convenience for the home seller, the real benefit of my Sunday Tour of Homes is the auction effect that’s created. Because each property is only open for a specific 10-minute period, by design, we’re driving all the buyers to your home at exactly the same time, creating competition – what I would like to refer to as the auction effect, which, in many cases, causes multiple offers. Of course, that’s the real benefit of having more buyers and more competition, it means a higher sales price for the home.
Clients: It’s allowed us to, in turn, spend a little bit more time on Sunday at the home without necessarily getting out of the property for an open property. I found, at the completion of the tour, that the property is ours again and we can get on with our day-to-day lives.”

Objectively assessing a home’s maximum but realistic sales price correctly is a real science. Corey Chambers and his team monitors sales prices day in and day out in every neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles. They’ve established prices for hundreds of homes. That’s more than any other agent in the Greater Los Angeles area. In short, they are the proven truth in pricing experts.

Corey goes on to say, “We give our clients truthful and frank advice on pricing. Then we negotiate with buyers to get you, our home seller, the full asking price. We believe that you should list your home with the agent that has the best track record for actually obtaining the highest price, not just list with the agent who tells you the highest price. Most home sellers understand that the sale of their home is a very important financial transaction. Most home sellers have a profound preference for dealing with the best,” Corey elaborates, “There’s a very big difference between just getting your home sold and getting your home sold right. Track record is very important. I really believe it’s the measuring stick as to how effective a real estate agent’s marketing efforts are. Anybody can promise anything, but what you need to do is you need to look at an agent’s actual documented track record to see how their promises are kept. We’re happy to show you an entire year’s worth of transactions with both the original asking price and the final sales price. In fact, our track record is so impressive that over 99% of the homes that we list sell for between 95% and 110% of the home seller’s original asking price.”

Remember, Corey Chambers’s system for selling propertys is so successful that other real estate agents from across Canada and the US pay a licensing fee to use this system in their marketplace. How many real estate agents at Downtown Los Angeles can say that they have 18,000 other real estate agents pay to use the same success system? The answer is one: Corey Chambers.

Since selling a home is a major financial transaction, why wouldn’t you hire the most successful and experienced real estate agent to sell your home?

After spending time researching and studying Corey Chambers’s home selling system, I can summarize the main reasons you want to have your home sold by Corey Chambers and his team. The first reason is speed. Their team will sell your home fast. That’s not an empty promise; it’s a fact. In hot markets or slow markets, in every part of your region, their selling speed is well-known.

The second reason is top dollar. Corey and his team will sell your home for the absolute most amount of money that the market will bear.

The third reason you’d want to use them is they take care of the sale of your home. There is little or no hassle. Corey and his team will sell your home with every “I” dotted and every “T” crossed.

Finally, I really believe the most important reason to hire Corey Chambers and his team is that they’re the safe bet. Corey Chambers’s been involved with real estate here in Downtown Los Angeles since 2002. He has been the top agent for the past 4 consecutive years.

In closing, why take a chance for the less-experienced or less successful agent who cannot provide the same facts or provide the statistics and the same certainty to you? Honestly, I don’t know. I hope everyone reading this will decide that they should trust Corey and his team with one of the most important financial transactions of their life.

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.

Lauren Han

⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️⭐️

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.

Cash Flow Homes USA

Check out America’s best rental income properties under $50,000 from CashFlowHomesUSA.com 

Yesterday, thousands of readers were gripped by the LA Loft Blog post that went viral across the internet. Real estate is one of the best investments for the new year. It’s the biggest investment made by the average person, but does not need to be an extremely large investment.  #rental #income #homes

la-negative-cash-flow-j

With its amazing transformation, Downtown Los Angeles attracts up to 100 new residents per day.  And did you know that the Downtown area now provides more than 500,000 jobs? Yes, it’s true. The neighborhood that many had left for dead in the 1980’s is now one of the leading hotspots for all kinds of opportunities. Check out yesterday’s list of the top 5 best Downtown real estate investments. The post went viral and was the most read post of the past 30 days. It’s at https://laloftblog.com/2017/01/02/top-10-investments-for-2017/

While Downtown lofts are super exciting to many first time Downtown home buyers and investors, most buyers cannot afford the $657,214 average price of a Downtown loft, and they cannot afford to carry the property at a loss until it finally reaches a positive cash flow. Take a look at the property pin map above that shows negative cash flow properties in Downtown (red pins) and then see the positive cash flow of some other American neighborhoods (green pins) below. This is the fastest method that real estate professionals use to determine investment value and profitabiity.

Average investors can get a property with a much faster positive cash flow, lower purchase price and bigger cash-on-cash return. Request a free list of America’s best rental income homes from $40,000.  Get free information from CashFlowHomesUSA.com or fill out the online form:

New Homes: River of Tears – Three Mistakes to Avoid Before Buying a Condo by the Water

New Construction Houses and Condos For Sale in Los Angeles

Bright, shiny, new, clean, modern and up-to-date  —  these are the happy things that lure us to new construction homes. Because developers create a glut when they build dozens at a time, they can even make for a better deal than a resale home sometimes. But what dangers do a shiny new object distract us from?

la-river-flood-70s

There are three areas of thought that can help prevent disasters before a prospective new home buyer considers a walk into a new homes sales office:

#1 Leaving the checkbook at home will not protect.  —  Just browsing? Better plan ahead; and here’s why:  As soon as someone steps into the sales office of a new home development, they are asked to sign in.  That signing in seems innocent and safe enough, but it is often the first and biggest mistake in the process.  Most who stroll in to see new fox-in-hen-househomes instinctively know that they will probably not purchase a home there, but they are rightfully curious. The first problem is that the buyer has unknowingly signed away their right to get free help from a licensed real estate professional. Unless they are accompanied by an agent or broker on the very first visit, the buyer has actually agreed to give away their free protections given to them by the laws of the great state of California.  The innocent visitor has waived rights to free representation by a local real estate professional.  Should they fall in love with the new condo or house, the buyer now has but two choices: buy the home directly from the developer’s sales team without the assistance of a knowledgeable professional — or do not buy a new home at that new development.  The visitor has inadvertently hired the fox to guard the hen house. The first step of the buying process has begun, and possibly on the wrong foot.

#2 Today’s home buyers in Los Angeles have high standards, which might not
be met.  
Home shoppers want a clean, quiet home with open space, high ceilings, lots of
train-noise-vibration-jpgbig windows and light, a pretty view of some kind, architectural character, neighborhood safety, convenient parking and walkable to coffee, shops, entertainment and public transportation.   Some of the shiny homes in today’s new construction market suffer instead from excessive freeway noise or train noise, gnat swarms, boxy architecture, small windows, freeway view or no view, inconvenient tandem parking spaces, dangerous raceway bike path and prowling coyotes. Some new homes for sale do not yet have final approval from the City of Los Angeles, and in-house lenders sometimes experience big delays, so the sales could potentially be delayed many months.

Some new park-side houses under construction near the river have a land lease so that the owner does not really own all of the property.  This limits the long-term value of the property because the land lease impact snowballs to a greater and greater negative factor over time.

#3 The Los Angeles River will flood – The area around the river is a flood plain.  The city los-angeles-flood-02has prepared for a major flood to happen about every 100 years. It could happen in a thousand years, or it could happen next winter. While the new homes may not technically be inside the official flood zone, the concrete LA River has nearly overflowed its banks before, and, sooner or later, it will flood neighboring homes and businesses, especially underground parking, ground level, first floor and possibly even flood 2nd-floor units.

Homebuyer Protection Programs

When the buyer does find the right home, they must face competition from the seller and from other buyers. In today’s real estate market, there are a relatively large number of buyers, and few sellers. Most buyers are unpleasantly surprised that they are usually outbid by other buyers or sometimes virtually ignored by the seller. To have a good chance of success in the current home buying environment, buyers can take advantage of strategies that help them to beat out other buyers to the best deals by getting priority access to all of the properties. This includes getting access to the largest number of pocket listings, off-market, unlisted and unadvertised bargains. Buyers are more satisfied with their home purchase when they get access to the pros and cons, including the negative information on properties such as lawsuits and litigation, along with undesirable construction and defects that sellers sometimes try to ignore or even hide.  Buyers want to understand the neighborhood and know what is going on and coming up in the neighborhood.  Like a fly-by-night used car lot, new home sales offices typically pack up and leave town after they reach their sales goals. Rather than relying on a sales office agent, or a friend/relative who happens to be an out-of-area agent from another neighborhood, smart home buyers take advantage property-dtla-value-heat-map-2of specialized neighborhood knowledge combined with the latest real estate technology such as a neighborhood heat map. Buyers get the best home purchase terms, incentives, loan rates and fees when they have access to compare several local lenders who know the building.  Buyers avoid expensive mistakes when they get help scheduling a local inspection company who specializes in that type of building in that area.

The most serious and astute of home buyers consider all of the costs and possibilities to save as much money as possible on their home purchase.  A local neighborhood specialist
often knows what the bottom line is for the seller, allowing the home buyer to place the home-warranty-guaranteelowest offer rather than offering tens of thousands of dollars too much on a desirable new home.  A  savings guarantee can ensure that the new home buyer can negotiate down $10,000 from the asking price or the agent pays $1,000 toward the buyer’s closing costs – visit www.Save10Grand.com.  A Free Home Warranty could cost the buyer $575.00, but some agents will offer to pay for this if the seller won’t pay for it.  Usually, nothing is guaranteed in real estate.  It is all too common for buyers to buy a new home, then find out they don’t love it as much as they thought.  There is a solution: The Love Your Home Guarantee. Get the details at www.LoveYourHomeGuarantee.com

love-your-homeThe take-away.  Always bring a local neighborhood specialist real estate professional before browsing any new construction condominiums or houses.  It’s free, and the right Home Buyer Protection Program can prevent numerous problems while giving many surprising benefits at no cost to the buyer.

MT WASHINGTON HOMES FOR SALE  |  FOR LEASE

mt-washington-view-griffithMany buyers are looking for single family homes with views and pools in desirable neighborhoods near Downtown, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Pasadena, Silver Lake, Elysian Park Lincoln Heights and Montecito Heights.

Many of the hillside homes in Mt. Washington have septic systems, which should be emptied and tested during escrow to ensure that the buyer will not have an extremely expensive surprise after purchase. This is particularly true if the seller was a single occupant, and the buyer is a couple or family.  Septic systems are much more likely to get overloaded or backed-up with a large number of residents. The good news is that efficient, maintained septic systems can cost less than City of Los Angeles monthly sewer charges.

These recently sold listings from all real estate companies show the actual prices paid for some of the properties in the past month in various price ranges.

LA Loft Search – Downtown Homes For Sale and For Lease

Finding a loft, condo or apartment in Downtown Los Angeles may seem easy at first, thanks to the internet.

The problem is that most properties seen on the internet are listings several days or weeks old, and the best properties go quickly. In fact, the very best deals are often gone before they ever reach the internet.  That means that the average person who is seeking an above-average loft will lose to the few, lucky loft-seekers who have direct access to the MLS where real estate brokers list the properties first. And even fewer have access to all of the unlisted properties that are not on the internet, and not listed by brokers. This post will help loft lovers to get priority access to proprietary information, allowing one to see the best properties first, before the general public takes them.

To gain access to these listed and unlisted properties, use the free resources below to browse, and then use a Downtown specialist Realtor to start getting access to new listings about 3 days earlier than the general public.
