The LA River Revitalization Plan will be a reality, in some form, soon. I can’t wait!
Right after the end of football season the home buying and selling season begins. In Los Angeles the season starts in February and hits its stride in early Spring. Buyer activity peaks in early Summer and remains strong well into months ending in “ember,” beyond when we move the clocks forward and the days get shorter. It starts earlier here and ends later than in most parts of the country. LA real estate buyers and sellers are not as seasonal as those in other places. Our famous Southern California weather has a lot to do with that. Continue reading
The big news in California and the especially hot Northeast Los Angeles real estate market this year: welcome back. Welcome back to the mid 00’s. Home prices in Los Angeles County now equal or exceed those seen at the high-point of the market in 2006/2007 in most parts of town. Historically, home prices in California go up for a while and then they go down for a while. Every time they go back up the peak of the market is higher than the previous one. We are seeing that happen right now as property values and sales prices are hitting new highs in many neighborhoods.
The real estate market on what we loosely call the Eastside of Los Angeles last peaked in 2006/2007, crashed hard in 2008/2009, then “bounced along the bottom” from 2009 until the economic recovery started in late 2012. Prices started rising in most neighborhoods at the end of 2012 and have continued their ascent throughout 2013 and 2014.
2015 Real Estate Market Outlook
Will prices continue to rise in Los Angeles? Have they peaked? Is it a bubble? I’m not psychic, but all of the signals I see indicate prices will continue to rise in every Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood from Silver Lake to El Sereno, Echo Park to Eagle Rock, and everything in between. In an effort to figure it all out and put it all in perspective, here are the stats on 11 Eastside Los Angeles neighborhoods along with my perspective. Here are the ‘hoods in alphabetical order: Continue reading
4107 Garden Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90039
4BD, 2BA, 1,794 sq. ft. – $899,000
The 4000 block of Garden Avenue is a very special part of Atwater Village. It starts off with a bang at Los Feliz Boulevard near Atwater’s best breakfast spot, and ends with a neigh at Rigali Avenue where you will find more horses than people in the area known as the Atwater Village Equestrian Center. There are several private stables here plus the Ahmanson Equestrian Facility, home to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Mounted Platoon of 32 horses.
Los Angeles’ first cable-stayed bridge will soon rise above the Los Angeles River to connect North Atwater Village to Griffith Park, giving pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians direct access to the greatest park in Southern California. This 220′ high multi-modal bridge, La Kretz Crossing, is but a small part of the massive LA River Revitalization Master Plan which, in my dreams, will turn today’s grim asphalt paths along the river into the West Coast’s answer to the High Line.
Wait, there is more: Los Feliz Boulevard alone is home to dozens of great shops, bars, restaurants and cafes less than a 10 minute walk away from Garden Avenue, including personal faves such as Potted, Tam O’Shanter, The Morrison, The Roost, The Griffin, Bigfoot Lodge, and the taco truck at the corner of Perlita and Los Feliz. Believe the hype, Atwater Village is already awesome and more great neighborhood amenities are coming soon. All you need to do now is find a house in Atwater Village… Continue reading
This exceptional 2 bedroom unit on Perlita Avenue is the only condominium in Atwater Village on the market today!
Located north of Los Feliz Boulevard in the immaculate Perlita Gardens II complex, this top-floor unit has been updated to fit contemporary lifestyles while retaining its original character.
Atwater Village is THE hottest neighborhood in Los Angeles today. It is simply amazing how the community has changed over the last few years and home prices are certainly reflecting the neighborhood’s resurgence.
If you already own a home in Atwater Village you have probably seen some appreciation in its value this year. In the first 9 months of 2013, the average sales price of a single-family home in Atwater Village rose 20% when compared to the same period in 2012. That’s a huge number! More amazing still, the average sales price per square foot for the same time period rose 35%. More than a third. If you own an “average” house in Atwater Village today just picture a $50 bill sitting on every square foot of your floor and that’s how much your home has appreciated this year. And call me when you are ready to scoop up all that cash…
Atwater Village pool homes are surprisingly rare. There are more than a handful of ’em, but far fewer than you would expect to see in an area where the houses tend to be on larger-sized lots with big backyards. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in North Atwater has been completely renovated – move right in and enjoy that pool!
Atwater Village is the hottest neighborhood in Los Angeles right now. This turn-key Tudor-style home located right off of Los Feliz Blvd. is a very special house and will not last long.
Just like every other segment of the real estate market in the Silver Lake area, sales of residential income properties (duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes and apartment buildings) have risen in 2013 any way you look at it. Continue reading
