As tax laws have changed at the beginning of this year, the L.A. Loft Blog presents this article to help homeowners, buyers and sellers to gain a basic understanding of the changes, and to minimize any drawbacks while taking full advantage of the financial benefits of the new rules. While different items such as exemptions and deductions have gone up or down for various people, this post will focus on taxes that relate to L.A., CA real estate. For Downtown LA, owners of historic lofts continue to receive financial benefits through the Mills Act property tax law. #taxreform #taxes #2018
Taxes depend on several factors such as whether the homeowners are single or married, and whether they meet several IRS rules. The first $250,000 of profit is usually tax free for single ($500,000 for married). Several factors may be taken into consideration such as property improvements and expenses. If it is not the property owners primary residence, they might be able to do a 1031 exchange when selling and buying a similar property. #millsact

When it comes to Downtown Los Angeles, the uniqueness of commercial and industrial conversions brings awesomeness and stylish character that ordinary homes cannot deliver. Because they are different, there is definitely a right way, a wrong way — and then there is the loft way. #dtla #lofts #subway
Live/work lofts are basically just large empty boxes that are waiting for someone to add their personal touches such as furniture, decor and love. Because they built for permanent heavy duty use, and approved for live-work under the City of Los Angeles Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance, DTLA lofts are ready for just about anything that a creative mind needs for enjoying life and productivity. When it comes to furnishing a loft, there is no right way, and no wrong way. The loft way provides for the fullest range of possibilities.
Take SB Grand Building for instance with its Metro subway station entrance right next door, it makes for profits and posh lifestyles as the historic structure efficiency combines with rapidly increasing community amenities such as Pershing Square, in addition to the countless walkable shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment venues to provide endless possibilities for the richest urban lifestyle with every form of fast and efficient transportation.
