Over the last six weeks, I feel like there has been a constant themeÂ to my blog, which is that I always start out by apologizing for the recent lack of updates. Today is no different. As I get older, I am not a huge believer in excuses but I am just going to toss one out there anyway. The good news for buyers is that the market is incredibly hot right now if you are ready to take the leap. Over the last 10 days,Â I have put four propertiesÂ into solid escrows with the first closing AugustÂ 20th.Â Nothing makes me happierÂ than when I see that "light in my client's eyes", which although is subjective, is my litmus test as to whether or not they are really in love with a place. If I don't see it, then it's usually not their dream pad. Â WithÂ thatÂ said,Â it's been "balls toÂ the wall" (for lack of a better term)Â workwise. Since I love what I do and am a self proclaimed real estate junkie/woraholic, I am savoringÂ every minute of it. Unfortunately,Â it has left me withÂ little room for anything else. I had a marathon of showingÂ one day last week on a Friday and a client/friend called meÂ around 6:30pm. I had to tell her I was in my pajamas waiting for a delivery from Pizza Hut - haha!Â Â Now that I am able to catch my breath, IÂ truly recommitting to updating on a regular basis as there is a lot to talk about and many Hot Props that our worth mentioning!
For those of you who follow my blog, today'sÂ Hot LeaseÂ might look a bit familiar. I had itÂ listed for sale a few months back. When a seller approaches me to list their home,Â sometimes it makes sense to sell whileÂ other timesÂ it makes moreÂ sense to hold on to itÂ fora while and just lease until things become a bit more stable. Such is the case with this unit. Many people had asked about a lease option while it was for sale. If you are one of those people, now's your chance! This post hasn't been altered too much from when I had it for sale.
As you know, I always try toÂ remain objective about the properties I am presenting as well as other agent's listings.Â Â Objectively speaking with the research to back it up, I can say that thisÂ unit is without a doubt one ofÂ the nicest condos for leaseÂ in Beverly HillsÂ within this price point. Beverly Hills has always been a mish mash ofÂ partÂ amazing andÂ part "IÂ am only living in this place for either a) the school district or b) the prestige factor". In the condo/apartment world, there is not much by way of new constructionÂ and slick modern amenities unless you are willing to payÂ a huge premium for it. More times than not, you will be entering a world ofÂ buildingsÂ built in the 20's or 30's (which can be cool if done right),Â crystal chandeliers (and not the cool kind from Bon Tempe), carpeting, old school bathrooms/kitchens, and that constant smell of moth balls that bring back memories of your great Aunt Sylvia.Â Parking can also be tricky with Beverly Hills leases.
This 10 unit architectural building was completed in 2004 and is the crown jewel of the neighborhood. With such amenities as keyless entry into both the building and unit, impeccably kept common areas, fitness center, and side by side parking, there is nothing like it in the city. The unit itself is absolutely stunning and no expenses were spared to make this the ultimate pied-Ã -terre. There are gleaming hardwood floors throughout the entire residence, a gourmet kitchen with a complete Viking appliance packageÂ (fridge, range, microwave, and dishwasher included), creamy granite counters, inlaid ceilings in the living room with recessed lighting/thick crown molding, and a massive outdoor patio that is perfect for entertaining. The master is substantial with lots of natural light and an en suite bathroom with tasteful cararra marble dual sink vanities and showerÂ (I say tasteful becauseÂ many of us have witnessed howÂ marble can go horribly array in BH). AnotherÂ unique feature is a dressing suite/separate vanity/water closetÂ to ensure your private quarters remain closed off to guests. There is an in unit washer and dryer, security system, and wiring for surround sound music. As I mentioned above, the unit does come withÂ 2 gatedÂ side by side parking spots as well as guest parking.Â Beverly Hills Unified School District,
