Hi Will - this is an excellent time to consider putting your home on the market. We have tremendous momentum so far this year on the Westside and there's no better example of that than the SFR market in the Palisades. It's probably been a while since you've heard the term 'Seller's Market' but that's exactly what the market was in February. Just 5 months of inventory based on the market absorption rate and with the continuing momentum we're seeing, the situation could well become more pronounced.
That fact translates to opportunity for a seller, as these circumstances can and do have an upward influence on pricing. Speaking of which, even the Median Sold Price for February was up by 14% year-to-year. If you'd care to learn more stats on the PP SFR market, I invite you to visit the market sales data section at WestsideHomesGallery.com.

I would strongly recommend you contact a local mortgage banker. I don't mean one of the big banks, but a smaller lender who specializes in writing mortgages. There are stated income and no doc loans still available though they may require a larger down payment. If you don't know a lender, call a realtor and ask to be referred.... more
Stated loans are a thing of the past in all states. If you have a 50% to 60% equity position then you can look at hard money options. All convetional loan programs require the verificaion of income with w2's and tax returns.... more
From a marketing point of view it doesn't make a difference in my opinion. If there are any docs you record with you or your wife's name on it (i.e. deed of trust), they are public record and can be found if someone was so inclined. Please seek an accountant's advice regarding tax implication.... more

Tear downs are going in multiple offers (usually more than 15 offers per property in the past month) and usually within the first week.
Good luck!... more
The first thing to do would be to talk to a lender and get pre-approved for a loan. Any potential offer you made on a property would likely need that included with the offer, plus you want to know hat your purchasing power is up front. You also want to get a good agent to help you find a place you like & write the offer for you. I would be happy to help you if you like - send me an email to email@example.com , or call me at 323-810-7976, and I'd be happy to assist you & answer any other questions you have. We have a couple of big foreclosure listing agents in our office with new listings coming on the market all the time.
Thanks, have a good night.

It would depend upon the buyer's appreciation for those features. A buyer who prefers not to have a pool and a view would find little value in those amenities. However, a buyer with appreciation of such fine aspects in a home would value it greatly and pay upwards of $100 - 200,000 depending upon the quality and design.

I can't find the specific code, but I recall every home needs permanent vehicle parking. Exceptions would include areas of Topanga and Laurel Canyon where homes were built without garages or carports.... more
