  • Neighbors unhappy about one homeowner’s paint job

    Posted Under: Curb Appeal in Malibu, In My Neighborhood in Malibu  |  August 6, 2013 1:40 PM  |  710 views  |  No comments


     

    We’ve all seen some seen some pretty bad paint jobs on houses before, but this one is raising a lot of negative attention. One homeowner in East Hampton, N.Y., greatly upset his neighbors when he posted a sign outside his house stating; “Help paint a starving artists house. Throw a pint.” His whole house, even the windows and doors are now covered with splashes of paint.

    One angered neighborhood told the East Hampton Patch that it degrades the whole neighborhood and everyone’s property value goes down. He asked, “Why would you buy a house next to him?”

    The homeowner was issued notices of violation by town officials over the state of his property months back. The homeowner did not respond and he is not required to go to court.

    This is not the first time this particular homeowner has had issues with town officials. From 2002 to 2009, the homeowner spent years in court. Finally the town officials sent over a crew to remove tires, boats and cars among other random items. He was fined $5,000 by the town for the clean up.

    This story reminds us of other neighbor issues reported by AOL real estate last year. Another story reported about a woman who was harassing her neighbors even though there was a restraining order. She was sentenced to three months in jail.

    There was one report of a neighbor who was trying to sabotage the sale of the next door neighbor by posting reasons why he would make a terrible neighbor. 

    If you think this paint job is horrible, check out this slideshow of outrageous exterior paint jobs.

    As Malibu residents and Malibu real estate agents, we’ve seen our fair share of horrible paint jobs as well. Do you have a Malibu neighbor with a horrible paint job? One particular home up Latigo Canyon has deterred some buyers from purchasing the home next door. These buyers have stated they love the Malibu home that is for sale, but they just can’t stomach the paint job on the home next door.

  • Do you know what the 5 Hottest LA Real Estate Neighborhoods are?

    Posted Under: Market Conditions in Malibu, Home Buying in Malibu, In My Neighborhood in Malibu  |  July 17, 2013 3:24 PM  |  452 views  |  No comments


    Los Angeles County real estate has been on fire. Experts are saying that economic recovery does not even come close to explaining the ridiculous levels of interest in home buying. Cash is king and bidding wars are common.

    Many will be surprised to learn that some of the hottest areas with some of the highest price increases do not include a Malibu 90265 zip code or a Beverly Hills 90210 zip code. 

    According to a report by Redfin, the five hottest Los Angeles real estate neighborhoods just so happen to be inner city communities. From June 2012 to June 2013, these areas reported the highest increases per square foot. Check out their top five listed cities.

    Top Los Angeles Real Estate Neighborhoods #5 – Mid-Wilshire

    The median price per square foot is $551, with an increase of almost 62% from June 2012 – June 2013, as reported by Redfin.

    Top Los Angeles Real Estate Neighborhood #4 – Central City

    Many are surprised to learn that Central City is referred to specifically as South Los Angeles (near the University of Southern California) – Newton Division. Yes, we were surprised too.  The median price per square foot is $205, with an increase of almost 63% from June 2012 to June 2013, as reported by Redfin.

     

    Top Los Angeles Real Estate Neighborhood #3 – Downtown

    The median price per square foot is $280, with an increase of almost 66% from June 2012 to June 2013, as reported by Redfin. Back in the day, several condominiums were converted to rentals in downtown Los Angeles. Today, they are turning back to saleable units.

     

    Top Los Angeles Real Estate Neighborhood #2 – Silver Lake / Echo Park / Edendale

    The median price per square foot is $575, with an increase of almost 81% from June 2012 – June 2013, as reported by Redfin. This area is known as the “Hipster Triangle.”

     

    Top Los Angeles Real Estate Neighborhood #1 – Hollywood
