Biggest mistakes being made today by buyers of new lofts:

2. Not using downtown loft specialist buyers agent

3. Not bringing agent with on first visit

4. Not finding out about defects in building

5. Not having the right strategies to negotiate with the seller

Fashion District Lofts and a Great Neighborhood to Live In!

DTLA districts.

With many new lofts coming onto the market next month, I have decided to write a series of blogs on the Districts of Downtown Los Angeles.  If you are interested in purchasing a loft or just interested in the growing downtown area, it’s better to know the districts.

The Fashion District is full of industrial buildings that are now converted to lofts as well as newly constructed lofts.

Santee Alley is one of the most popular shopping areas in the LA Fashion District, best known for its festival-like atmosphere and amazing bargains. Santee Alley’s over 150 stores and vendors sell everything from apparel for the entire family, accessories, toys, perfume, gift items and much more!

The LA Fashion District is where the business of fashion happens.

80% of the LA Fashion District is comprised of wholesale-related business and is the hub of the apparel industry on the West Coast. Buyers, retailers, wholesalers and designers all gather here, creating an exciting synergy that has become synonymous with Los Angeles fashion. The world looks to LA and the LA Fashion District for the cutting edge styles that are influencing the way the world dresses.

ECKARDT LOFTSThe LA Fashion District is home to the largest  wholesale and retail floral selection in the United States.

Focused along 8th Street, virtually every  variety of cut flower can be found, plus potted plants, dried and silk flowers  and floral supplies. The LA Flower Market, the largest flower market in the  United States, is centered along Wall Street, between 7th Street and 8th Street  and is the premier resource for those in the floricultural industry. The LA  Flower Market is comprised of the American Florist Exchange and the  Southern California Flower Market. Many other flower stores can be found on 8th  Street, between Wall Street and San Pedro Street. These stores are open to  wholesale and retail during normal business hours and require no admission fee.

New Lofts for Sale in Downtown Los Angeles. Why a buyers agent that specializes in Lofts is essential!

Click on Photo to see Video of New Lofts
Click on Photo to see Video of New Lofts

New Lofts are being sold in Downtown Los Angeles for the first time in a very long time.  Lofts have been sold out in Downtown Los Angeles and getting in front of other buyers is very important.  The best lofts in buildings get sold first and rarely are put back on the market.  Using a real estate agent who represents both buyers and sellers will often result in a higher purchasing price, and will often bring more problems for the buyer.

A Loft is not a Condominium or a house.  This is obvious, Right?  Well not really.  Even though Lofts have HOA fees, they are not Condominiums.  Lofts do not qualify for conventional loans and if a agent is not experienced they will not discover this fact until it is often too late for the buyer.

While lofts do not qualify for conventional loans it does not mean they do not qualify for mortgages.  It means that a purchaser, the real estate agent, and the loan agent must work to get documentation and contact lenders that will fund a loft.  Often, a lender will use conventional lenders and not find out until the end of escrow they can not use conventional lenders.  This will often extend escrow while appropriate lenders are found, or will end escrow and the seller will walk away.  Don’t let your dream loft slip from your hands because your agent and loan agent are at the beginning of the learning curve when it comes to Lofts!  Corey Chambers at the Keller Williams team are experienced in special lending terms and can help turn this nightmare into a advantage when competing with other purchasers.

Law suits is a ugly term.  But more than 20% of Loft buildings are in the middle of some law suit of one kind or another.  If you work directly with a developer to purchase a loft, or if you a use a agent that does not specialize in Lofts, chances are you will not be informed of existing law suits and how it affects the owners of the lofts in a particular building.  As a experienced loft specialist, Corey Chambers will let you know of impending law suits that a building may have.  Often many loft buyers complete escrow and find out later that there are outstanding law suits against a building.  A developer is not required to inform buyers of impending law suits.  Corey Chambers has a 100% satisfaction rating because he gives the buyers the bad news up front.

Corey searches for new lofts before they go on the market!

Pocket listings or secret supplies are common place in the loft market.  Many lofts are not listed on the MLS.  There are many reasons for this, but ultimately it means that there are beautiful lofts on the market that get over looked buy purchasers.  Corey Chambers has 100s of pocket listings for lofts for sale in Downtown Los Angeles.  Only a handful of agents specialize in lofts and developers use these specialist when they have earned their confidence.

Lofts are going to market this year, and there are fewer loft warehouse conversions available in the future.

Our team can provide the earliest viewings while most must wait until these Lofts open to the general population and most realtors.  We can submit the earliest possible bid to the developers before the competition comes into play, getting you ahead of the competition and inflating the prices for these Downtown Lofts! Buyers who see the new lofts early often get the best units at the lowest prices.

The Arts District – Lofts and a fantastic neighborhood!!

DTLA districts.
DTLA districts.

With many new lofts coming onto the market next month, I have decided to write a series of blogs on the Districts of Downtown Los Angeles.  If you are interested in purchasing a loft or just interested in the growing downtown area, it’s better to know the districts.

The Arts District is a district full of industrial buildings that are now converted to lofts as well as newly constructed lofts.

Some examples include:

Barker Block lofts (510 S. Hewitt St.  |  530 S. Hewitt St.), Biscuit Company Lofts (BISCUIT COMPANY LOFTS FOR SALE),  Gallery Lofts (120 S. Hewitt St.  |  130 S. Hewitt St.), Molino Street Lofts (MOLINO STREET LOFTS FOR SALE), Toy Factory Lofts, (TOY FACTORY LOFTS FOR SALE), Toy Warehouse Lofts, (TOY WAREHOUSE LOFTS FOR SALE).

arts-district-downtown

Today the Arts District remains the home of artists, arts enterprises and many employed in L.A’s vast film and television industry .  The celebrated Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), now resides in the 110 year old, quarter mile-long former Santa Fe freight depot that stretches along Santa Fe between Third and 4th Streets. SCI-Arc’s reputation as an experimental anti-establishment school of architecture is a perfect fit with the community’s somewhat rebellious self-image and its student population helps preserve the areas youthful character.

The district has great restaurants and EATERIES  that typify west coast culture!.

  • Bestia (2121 E. Seventh Place; (213) 514-5724, bestiala.com) a restaurant that earns aces: Wood-fired, well-portioned Italian food pairs with cocktails. The best seat in the house might be at the antipasti bar, counterside to the prep-cook duo tossing little gem lettuce salads and composing chicken liver bruschettas by hand.
  • Bread Lounge (700 S. Santa Fe Ave.; (213) 327-0782)  There’s no signage outside,  but inside a excellent neighborhood bakery.  Choose breads alongside raspberry-peach preserves at the counter and chunks of real potato in the potato rosemary loaf.  Or try the börek, a Balkan phyllo pastry filled with cheese and meats or vegetables, sits near the timbale and ham-cheese croissants.
  • Pizzanista (2019 E. Seventh St.; (213) 627-1430, pizzanista.com) slices of pizza run $2.75 to $4, with the pepperoni, Daiya cheese and plain cheese $2 all day Tuesday. Even the Meat Jesus — a pie topped with pepperoni, sausage and bacon — is more conscious than it lets on, with meats frequently coming from humane sources. An emphasis is placed on local ingredients, with vegan options also available.
  • The Daily Dose (1820 Industrial St.; (213) 281-9300, dailydoseinc.com) a café.  The formidable Farmer sandwich is a best-selling behemoth and a microcosm of the chef’s take on eating fresh.  Sliced diagonally, the topography reveals pesto, bright ancho chili jam, burrata, a house-made veggie patty, a sprinkling of chopped scallions, guacamole and halved fingerling potatoes, all layered within a giant square of ciabatta. 
  • Eat.Drink.Americano (923 E. Third St.; (213) 620-0781, eatdrinkamericano.com) The menu is a concise range of sandwiches, soup and salads.  Lunch is available from 11:30 a.m. to about 5 p.m.

DOG PARK:  Besides the dog park near Grand park, Saslow Dog Park is the only other dog park located in downtown. Located at 1004 E 4th St.

LOCAL GROCERY:  local options are Cookbook, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s and McCall’s but Urban Radish beats them hands down on service, quality and price.  In the summer of 2013 the Urban Radish opened in the Arts District (661 Imperial St urban-radish.com).

  • Urban Radish is an upscale and local grocery store next to Church & State in Downtown Los Angeles; while it is small, it features everything you would need to make a meal from vegetables and fruit to dairy, cheeses, seafood, and meats (it is kind of like an independent Bristol Farms); prices are about what you would expect for this type of store; a few items do feel very pricey; their fresh fish selection is small, but Urban Radish does feature nice looking US Choice beef (around the same prices or maybe a little less than Bristol Farms), a good variety of cheeses and several cured meats.

“The Chinese are the most knowledgeable and intuitive buyers I have,” told to ABC News. “You can’t sell to them, because they do their homework and come to you with a knowledge base that will amaze you. You have to gain their trust by adding value, meaning you have to tell them what they don’t already know. The more you can tell them in terms of financial issues, tax issues, the more they will respect you.”
