The 2017 Million Dollar Story Exceeds Expectations (Well, Mine Anyway)

The 2017 Million Dollar Story Exceeds Expectations (Well, Mine Anyway)

An investment in homeownership in NELA isn't just a sound investment in the good life. It's a good investment period. The numbers tell the story and they don't lie.

It's official. Owners of single family homes in Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Mt. Washington and even Glassell Park homes are asking - and getting - a million dollars or more. Let's face it: There's never been a better time to be a homeowner in Northeast Los Angeles. The numbers are in!

As of December 29, 2017 (the last day of the year that sales could be recorded by the County), zip code 90041 had 51 single family homes sell for over $1 million each, including the highest sale ever recorded here. And now in January, 2018, an even higher highest sale ever closed escrow! Yes, after 7 years of trying with various agents, the almost 3-acre historic Bekins estate at last sold to a comedian and his heiress wife for $5,250,000!

First Time Homebuyers: Feel Like You Have a Tiger by the Tail?

First Time Homebuyers: Feel Like You Have a Tiger by the Tail?

If today's homebuyers want to score big in the hot and active Northeast LA real estate market, it behooves them to think like a seasoned investor.

Many first time buyers in the crazy Northeast Los Angeles real estate market do feel like they have a tiger by the proverbial tail. From their point of view, they looked at dozens of homes for sale in Highland Park or Eagle Rock, dutifully attending open houses. They have competed time after time, pouring their hearts out in charming "I love your house and we are the cute couple you should pick to buy it" letters, scraping together every dime they can, revealing all their financial secrets to people they've never met and probably never will. And then, the 13th or 23rd time they go through this, they win!

They get to buy a house! Now what?

Why Do We Buy Homes?

Everyone has been so concerned with the real estate market’s ups and downs, gain or loss in value, future prospects, that we have lost sight of the point of it all: Home.
Why do people buy homes? Here is a list of all the reasons I could think of quickly. How many apply to you?
  • To have one to live in, for the most part.
  • To define a space that is an expression of ourselves, our creativity, our artistic vision.
  • To be safe.
  • To be comfortable.
  • To provide shelter for ourselves and our families.
  • To be a personal retreat from a hectic world.
  • To be a meeting place for friends and family.
  • To be a symbol of our success.
  • To represent a stake in the community.
  • To be a tax write-off.
  • To be an investment.
  • To be a do-it-yourself project all our own.
Today, mortgage interest rates are at a 60-year low (!), prices are the lowest they’ve been in 5 to 10 years, and we are now seeing real (though tiny) signs that we are inching into recovery. The smart people are stepping forward and getting some great deals, not only on distress sales, but good regular houses.
Here’s my thought: even the properties that seem to be selling at a premium are deals today. If you look at what happened in the 90s and what people paid for homes in, say, 1995, today they look like incredible bargains. Even what people paid in 2000 was dirt cheap compared to now.Sometimes things don’t work out the way we want or expect them to. We move before we think we will because of work or divorce or some other necessity. But even if you have to move before your home becomes a profit center, you will have had the enjoyment of your own space. If you take a long view of owning homes and you focus on what you have put into living in them, the good times you have spent, the lessons you have learned, you may find that the returns have been much more than monetary. After all, do you only do the things in life that make you money? Do you only assess your success in life by the profits you have made? Or do love, comfort, joy and beauty enter into it?

Pacific Oaks School Puts Historic Building on the Market

Pacific Oaks, a private school in Pasadena, has decided to sell off one of the two Craftsman-style mansions it occupies. The 1909 Myron Hunt designed building at 6 Westmoreland Place can be yours for the price of $4 million! The school feels it is not fully utilizing the large space.

The house is 11,000 square feet on three levels. Zoning could make it difficult to restore the building to its original use as a home, so an institutional use is most likely.

If this sounds like something that suits your needs, give us a call at 626.844.2256.

857 Bank Street, South Pasadena

Usually when I see things like "original home added on to" in property remarks, I cringe instantly because a lot of add-ons are truly AWFUL. But when we pulled up to 857 Bank Street yesterday for broker's caravan I was very pleasantly surprised.

857 Bank Street

857 Bank Street

The Victorian house was originally built in 1890 and then moved to its current location in 1966. It is currently lender owned, and the bank is actually responsible for finishing the upgrades and add-ons. While there are some finishes that I might have done differently, the lender managed to maintain some original charm throughout the home. There are great floor inlays in the hardwood floors, beautiful tile work in the bathrooms, and large windows flooding the house with light throughout.

3461 Canyon Crest Road, Altadena

I know, I know, this isn't exactly Northeast LA, but this house is cool. First time on the market, I'd say it's a kind of Zen Ranch style home. It was built in 1950 by Norwood and Delonge, and it has maintained it's original charm. I'm not a huge wallpaper person, but this house has some great wallpaper! It's three bedrooms, three baths (1,943 sq. ft.) on a 21,000 sq. ft. lot. There are two fireplaces, one in the living room overlooking the lawn, and one in the den. The garage was converted to a neat little studio in the 1950s, and overlooks the back patio and landscaping. Central air and heat have recently been replaced. Listed for $655,000.
