Home_in_Lafayette_Square_1

This older neighborhood in Los Angeles has a European flair and it was designed as an elegant residential park centered on St. Charles Place, a palm tree-lined avenue with a landscaped median. The houses in Lafayette Square reflect residential styles popular during the 1910s and 1920s such as Tudor Revival Architecture, Italianate, Mediterranean Revival, Neo-Federalist, American Craftsman, Spanish Colonial Revival, and American Colonial Revival. Several houses, were designed in the Modern style, exemplifying an important trend in Los Angeles’ architectural development.

Originally, the neighborhood was designed for wealthier families and now-historic houses commonly have 5,000 to 6,000 square feet (600 m2) floor plans, today the average home size is 3,600 square feet. Today the neighborhood is a mix of large and medium size homes.

Most of the original properties have period details, such as Juliet balconies, mahogany staircases and libraries, sitting rooms, stained glass windows, triple crown molding, soaring ceilings, and even 4-car garages.

Can Your Mid-City Real Estate Agent Answer These Important Questions?

Whether you are selling or buying a Los Angeles home, the real estate agent you hire is critical to guaranteeing that you make the right decision. Most agents can walk you through the process and explain the industry ‘lingo,’ but you should expect so much more than that.

The housing crisis made everyone aware that truly understanding the local L.A. real estate market is more complicated than it seems. Today, there are many questions your real estate agent must be able to answer to ensure that you are making the right decision. Here are just a few:

  • What impact does the movement in mortgage interest rates have on buyer demand? 
  • With home prices increasing rapidly, are we headed toward another housing bubble?
  • Do you need a 20% down payment to purchase a home?
  • Why can’t we list at a higher price and drop it later if necessary?

When you are interviewing an agent to represent you in your next real estate transaction, make sure they can intelligently answer all your questions, while simply and effectively explaining what is happening in the Mid City, Downtown L.A. and Koreatown area housing market.

The Movie Colony (Palm Springs, CA)

THE MOVIE COLONY HOMES FOR SALE  |  NEW LISTINGS  |  UNLISTED

The Movie Colony (Palm Springs) Homes – East Via Colusa Drive

The Movie Colony (Palm Springs) Home on East Via ColusaThe Movie Colony is a neighborhood in Palm Springs, CA, just east of Palm Canyon Drive.  This area started to become popular in the 1930’s as Hollywood’s movie stars sought places where they could have more peace and quiet away from crowded Los Angeles.  Although the original houses were smaller than the estates in L.A. occupied by these celebrities, most have been rebuilt and there are many sprawling mansions hidden behind high walls and landscaping.  Some of the early stars and Hollywood moguls to build in this area were Frank Sinatra, Estée cp-ad-save-thousandsLauder, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Harry Cohn, David O. Selznick, Dinah Shore, Marilyn Monroe, Al Jolson, and Liberace.  At about 110 miles from Hollywood, Palm Springs was far enough to get away for a vacation, but close enough to drive back in just a few hours.  Surrounding neighborhoods include El Mirador to the north, Ruth Hardy Park on the east, and Old Las Palmas to the West.  The Palm Springs Convention Center is one block south, and the Palm Springs International Airport is only about a 10 minute drive.  The borders of The Movie Colony are E. Tachevah Drive on the north, N. Avenida Caballeros on the east, E. Alejo Road on the south, and N. Indian Canyon Drive on the west.  This tiny desert oasis has an area of just over 0.25 square miles!

 

With less than 200 homes, The Movie Colony is a small but affluent neighborhood, with many large property lots featuring pools, tennis courts, and guest houses.  The community features a mix of California Ranch, Spanish, Mid-Century Modern, as well as newer homes, giving the feel of modern chic mixed with retro charm.  There are 2 parks, the Desert Healthcare-Wellness Park, and the Ruth Hardy Park, and hiking trails are available just a few miles away at the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation.  In the early days of the area, those who didn’t own a home could stay at the nearby luxury El Mirador Hotel, which was converted to a hospital during WWII and is now the Desert Regional Medical Center having never been converted back to a hotel.  The Movie Colony is also walking distance to downtown Palm Springs where many restaurants and retail boutiques can be enjoyed year round!  For the those who want a peek at the homes of all of those movie stars who started the community, celebrity bus tours are available to all of the city’s most starstruck neighborhoods – The Movie Colony, Las Palmas, and Racquet Club Estates.

Lakewood Homes For Sale

LAKEWOOD HOMES FOR SALE  |  NEW LISTINGS  |  UNLISTED

Lakewood Homes For Sale

 

Lakewood is a city of about 82,000 in southwest Los Angeles County.  The city is bordered on the west and south by Long Beach, with Bellflower on the north, Cerritos to the northeast, Cypress on the east, and Hawaiian Gardens on the southeast.  Major thoroughfares include Lakewood Blvd. (SR 19), and the San Gabriel River Freeway (I-605) which runs through the city’s eastern side.  Built up over a mere decade during the 1950’s, some had referred to the area as an “instant city”.  Developed in the 1940’s, Lakewood is a planned community that fulfilled the builders’ attempt of mass-produced low-cost housing available to WWII veterans for no money down and a 4% 30-year mortgage.  After model homes first opened in March of 1950, an average of 30 homes were purchased every day with a record of 107 in just one hour!  Monthly payments at the time were only about $50.

The fast paced building quickly transformed empty Lima bean fields into more than 17,500 cp-ad-save-thousandshomes in less than 3 years with an average of about 50 houses build every day.  The main streets of Lakewood began as wide boulevards with landscaped medians and widely spaced connector streets that accessed the smaller streets of each neighborhood.  At the time, this was hailed as the ideal city design which combined a simple grid-like layout of the major streets but with side streets that featured winding drives and cul-de-sacs giving a feeling of privacy and peace for residents.

Lakewood CA Homes For Sale

Lakeview Homes For Sale (Candlewood & Clark Street)

Lakewood was incorporated in 1954, but continued to receive most public services through a contract with the Los Angeles County (such as the LA Sheriff’s Dept. for police services, and the LA County Fire Department), with some services being provided by the city or private contractors (the city has its own police helicopter and pilot with a sheriff riding along, and ambulances are provided by a private medical company).  This setup was called the “Lakewood Plan” by other nearby cities such as Cerritos and Bellflower who adopted similar models to provide municipal services.

Lakewood was the home of the first Denny’s restaurant in 1953, founded by Harold Butler and originally named “Danny’s Donuts” and renamed Denny’s in 1959.

Lakewood is served by 4 school districts: Long Beach Unified, Paramount Unified, Bellflower Unified, and ABC Unified, providing 16 public elementary schools, 8 middle schools, and 10 high schools.  There are also 2 L.A. public libraries and 14 private schools located within the city limits.   There are 9 public parks accessible to residents spread throughout the city, and also the Lakewood Golf Course, a private club.  Lakewood also offers several community centers providing services and activities for everyone including youth and senior centers, an equestrian center, and a dog park.  Mayfair Park offers a public pool with classes and activities; youth and adaptive swimming lessons are offered Monday – Friday every half hour between 3:30pm and 5:30pm; American Red Cross Lifeguard training is offered every May (for an additional fee).

Popular community events in Lakewood include the Pan American Fiesta, Patriot Day, Concerts in the Park, the Block Party and Halloween Carnivals, that bring residents together and create a sense of community in our sometimes fast-paced and busy world. There is also a range of “family fun” events specifically created for families to gather and enjoy an event or activity as a group.  Read about even more events and services on the city’s webpage at http://www.lakewoodcity.org/

Would Measure S Have Gripped Los Angeles in a Housing Shortage?

Would Measure S Have Gripped Los Angeles in a Housing Shortage?

The Los Angeles area is suffering from a housing deficit that has pushed median prices up to $610,000.  Over the past 5 years, prices have increased $240,000 leading to increased homelessness and evictions.  So would it have made sense to pass a broad measure that would essentially ban any large scale housing construction?  The backers of Measure S, the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, argued that it would have, although for other reasons.

Median List Price, All Homes

Measure S was however defeated this March after a heated, costly battle primarily over the long-standing practice of changing zoning rules to permit buildings that are taller or denser than the established regulations would normally allow.  It would have imposed a 2 year moratorium on such zone changes, in particular, “spot zoning” to allow individual construction projects (such as apartment towers, shops and offices) to proceed when they would otherwise require a special permit and could be halted by a court case.

Although housing growth in Los Angeles added nearly 20,000 units every year from the 1940’s until the 1980’s, it then slowed dramatically as more land-use regulations were enacted and less land was physically available.  In the past 7 years, less than 25,000 new units have been added but the population has grown by about 179,000 which is why developers want to take down smaller existing structures and build huge sky-scrapers with 1,000’s of new housing units.

Bunker Hill Tower

Rusty Hicks, executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor said “Defeating Measure S has spared our city from a future that would’ve meant fewer jobs, fewer funds for critical public services, fewer new homes for those who desperately need them, and even less affordable rents.”  Business groups and the mayor opposed the measure explaining that it might prevent developers from building the high density housing that is desperately needed in the L.A. area, thus eliminating possible jobs and hurting the city economically.  Furthermore, opponents say the measure would block the rezoning of unused or under-utilized land that would better used for housing construction.

However, neighborhood activists and supporters of the measure said it would help reform city hall’s “corrupt” planning process and prevent huge construction projects that increase traffic congestion, pollution, and lead to gentrification.  Campaign spokesperson Ileana Wachtel said “We were up against the establishment. It’s tough to fight the status quo and it’s tough to fight really wealthy developers.”  Others warned against the increasing “Manhattanization” of L.A. and that any such new housing developments would likely be too expensive for the many economically disadvantaged residents of the city and lead to an even larger homeless population. The measure would also have required public review of the city’s general plan every 5 years, ostensibly so that city residents could make sure no changes were being made that they didn’t like, although opponents point out that it would really just add more unneeded bureaucracy and procedures.

Real estate developers, labor unions, and other opponents of the measure raised more than $8 million to defeat the measure, while supporters only raised $5 million.  About 99% of the money supporting the measure was donated by the nonprofit AIDS Healthcare Foundation because of a high-rise Hollywood project.  Some of those opposed to the measure feel that the director of the foundation only wants to stop the construction project because it will block his view of the Hollywood sign.

The director of the Measure S campaign, Jill Stewart, argued that the political culture of the city has given rise to a “pay-to-play” culture in which politicians agree to rewrite zoning rules for real estate developers who sink money into their campaigns.  In an attempt to appease Stewart and other advocates of the measure, Mayor Garcetti pledged last fall that he would ban private meetings between developers and city planning commissioners which would expose any conflicts of interest or favoritism.

Rent Prices

Much of the debate between supporters and opponents was centered around the effect it would have on tenants as rents continue to soar- supporters believed it would prevent the displacement of longtime renters by stopping the builing of over-priced luxury apartments and condominiums which would require that older less expensive dwellings be demolished.  Opponents also accused the campaign of deceptive and irresponsible tactics such as saying the measure would help house homeless vets when it really wouldn’t, or using mailers that resembled eviction notices triggering a complaint by the Sheriff’s Department which stated such tactics were illegal.  The city leads the nation in homelessness, but just passed a ballot measure that would allocate $1.2 billion in bond revenue to fund 13,000 low income units. But it will be difficult to build these if Measure S passes, because developers often need zoning waivers to make their projects viable. For example, minimum parking requirements can greatly increase the cost of each unit, and don’t make sense since many homeless cp-ad-save-thousandspeople don’t own cars- a change in the zoning rules would allow for less space to be allocated to parking and more to housing, thus saving money for the developer.  The fact is, if developers can’t make enough money they won’t build anything!

Nonetheless, the measure was defeated by a 2-to-1 margin indicating either that voters had a clear understanding and preference, or perhaps that opponents of Measure S simply ran a better campaign!

Cerritos Homes For Sale

CERRITOS HOMES FOR SALE  |  NEW LISTINGS  |  UNLISTED

Cerritos Homes For Sale

Cerritos is an affluent city in southwest Los Angeles County, about 14 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, and 5 miles northwest of Santa Ana.  Cerritos lies along the border of Los Angeles County and Orange County. The cities bordering Cerritos on the Los Angeles County side include Artesia, Bellflower, Lakewood, Norwalk, Santa Fe Springs, and La Mirada.  Buena Park and La Palma border the City on the Orange County side.  Other cities in the region include Cypress, Hawaiian Gardens, and Long Beach.  The postal ZIP code of Cerritos used to be 90701 and was shared with the city of Artesia but it was changed to an exclusive 90703 to accommodate the increasing number of new addresses in the City during the mid-1990s.  The 91 freeway passes east-west through the center of Cerritos, and the I-605 runs through the city along the west side.

Originally inhabited by Native Americans, the area was settled by Spanish explorers in the 1540’s who built several missions in the area.  The king of Spain granted a large area of cp-ad-save-thousandsland to a former Spanish soldier named Jose Manuel Nieto, who named the area Rancho Los Nietos.   The part which later became the city of Cerritos was named by Nieto after the Spanish work for “little hills”, although modern Cerritos has no natural hills left.  After the Mexican-American war, the land fell under the ownership of the Los Angeles and San Bernardino Land Company which developed the area, including rail lines.  Originally named “Dairy Valley” when first incorporated in 1956, the city changed its name officially to back to Cerritos in 1967 after another nearby area called Rancho Los Cerritos.

Cerritos was one of the first cities in Los Angeles County to develop large-scale retail zones, such as the Los Cerritos Center and Cerritos Auto Square, and achieved stunning success.  The progressive nature of the city government and the strong tax-base is best reflected in its services and public facilities.  In 1978, Cerritos dedicated the nation’s first solar-heated City Hall complex.  In 1993, the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts was opened.  In 1994, the City completed the Cerritos Towne Center project that combines office, retail, lodging, fine arts and dining in an open-air style.  In 1997, the City opened the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station/Community Safety Center to provide public safety services.  In 2006, the City celebrated its golden anniversary with memorials and the unveiling of a sculpture garden.  The assessed valuation of the City of Cerritos is more than $7 billion.

 

Cerritos, CA Homes For Sale

Cerritos has several parks that can be enjoyed by residents.  The Cerritos Olympic Swim & Fitness Center provides year-round, indoor recreational, instructional and competitive swimming and gym.  The Pat Nixon Park pays tribute to the late First Lady Pat Nixon on the site of her childhood home, and features a state-of-the-art seniors center.  Other parks are the Cerritos Park East, Heritage Park, Liberty Park, and the Cerritos Regional Park which houses the Cerritos Sports Complex, the skate park, and outdoor swimming pools.  The City also has 18 neighborhood parks located near residential tracts, an executive golf course, and two community gymnasiums.

The SoCal Home Blog gives advantages to buyers and sellers with information about homes, houses, condos and lofts, whether near a desert oasis like Palm Springs (called the movie colony by some), or the snowy peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains.  We will help you find the top homes to buy or rental income properties with a positive cash flow- many of the most popular areas and neighborhoods in SoCal actually have negative cash flow for investors and owners.  Our goal is to help buyers find the best investment house or condominium.  For info on downtown L.A. lofts go to laloftblog.com

Cypress is a city in northern Orange County, CA, home to about 50,000 residents.  Adjacent communities are Los Alamitos and Hawaiian Gardens to the west, Cerritos, La Plama, and Buena Park on the north, Southwest Anaheim and Stanton are to the east, and the south is bordered by Rossmoor and Westminster.  Cypress is about 18 miles south-southeast of Downtown Los Angeles and 9 miles west-northwest of Santa Ana, and occupies about 6.6 square miles of land.cp-ad-save-thousands

Originally inhabited by a native American tribe, the area was taken over by Spain until 1821 when it became part of Mexico, and then was granted to the U.S. after the Mexican-American war.  Nicknamed “Waterville” at one time due to the many artesian wells in the area, the city was incorporated in 1956 as “Dairy City” by the many dairy farmers until the land became too valuable to be used for agriculture and was gradually sold to developers during the 1960’s.  The city was renamed to Cypress in 1957 because of the many cypress trees planted around the Cypress Elementary School which was built in 1895.  Since 1981, the city celebrates it birth with a huge annual community festival held at Oak Knoll Park on the 4th Saturday of July.  Real Mex Restaurants, Vans, Bandai America and Mitsubishi Motors North America are headquartered in Cypress. The Los Alamitos Race Course is located in Cypress, even though it bears the name of its neighboring city of Los Alamitos.
