Eagle Rock Schools: Renaissance Arts Academy

Renaissance Arts Academy is a charter school located in the heart of Eagle Rock in the historic Piller's Department Store building.  We just attended their annual End of Year show and were so impressed!

They performed a modern dance/recital/concert that used all their students who danced, played music, and I'm sure helped with the production, design, and backstage details. It lasted only about an hour, but it was electrifying and wonderful.

Once they closed the doors to the theatre, the performance commanded complete attention. Latecomers were only allowed in the back section, no cell phones or cameras flashed, the theatre sat spellbound by what happened onstage.

The basics are just the beginning in this Eagle Rock home - 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a flat lot with a pool, a 4-zone HVAC system.

Think also about coffee on the balcony, cocktails by the pool, a cozy evening with friends on the back deck, or just lounging on the couch in the living room with beams and a high vaulted ceiling, the antique light fixtures, and a view of your xeriscape through the front window--just another fabulous day in Paradise.

This 1932 Mediterranean has it all: location, the amenities, and boundless character.

Spacious Traditional Home at 1451 Buena Vista

This home in Burbank keeps its charms and joys hidden from the street.

Come in and see new carpet in the bedrooms, updated baths, an en-suite master bedroom with 2 closets, and an open kitchen/dining area that is great for active cooks and entertainers.

Or, send the party out back where the kids can play in the yard while the adults cluster around the barbecue. When the rain dance works, dash under the covered patio for your al-fresco dining.

Transitioning from Renting to Buying in Today's Real Estate Market

The most important tip for transitioning from renting to buying is to Be Prepared.

Do two things first:

1. Talk with a good lender about the loan process and what you can afford to buy. You might be surprised--either happily or unhappily. If your credit score or income aren't as good as they should be to qualify for the loan amount you need to purchase your dream home, you might be looking at a longer time saving and paying off bills than you thought. There are good lenders who can actually have your loan fully underwritten and approved before you identify the home you want to purchase. This makes you look like a much stronger buyer to the seller who may be considering several offers as well as yours. Because, of course, if you love that home, you can bet others will, too.
