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.

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

Highland Park is the hottest neighborhood in Los Angeles right now, and the Eagle Rock-adjacent part of the ‘hood offers the best of both the Eagle Rock and Highland Park worlds. If I had to pick a chunk of the Eastside with the most potential to blossom over the next few years, the area north of York Boulevard, south of Yosemite Drive, east of Eagle Rock Boulevard and west of Figueroa Street would be in my top 5. Half of it’s in Eagle Rock, half of it’s in Highland Park, all of it is awesome and getting better every day.
This North-of-Colorado-Boulevard Spanish-style Eagle Rock home is my favorite home on the market with an asking price under $500,0000 anywhere in Northeast LA today. Continue reading
