Hello, Billy

Thank you for the question and allowing me the opportunity to provide you with service . I have several clients currently looking to buy in Downtown Los Angeles . I provide them with information on short sales , Bank foreclosure, and most importantly pocket listings . I provide them with a free daily and weekly report on available properties currently on the market.

Billy , if you like i would be happy to provide you with similar information ..

It is very possible to buy DTLA for under 250k but you must be pre-approved and ready to move quickly when it hits the market. Recently a beautiful loft hit the market for 180k and it went into pending in a very short time period.

Hello Billy,
Yes it is possible. I have been selling lofts in downtown for the past 9 years. There are not many, but a few and I am on top of the inventory daily, so if you want, I would be happy to assist you in finding one. Let me know.

It'll be a challenge right now. I'm sure you know prices are going up. Maybe something will come up in Santee Village, SB Grand or Little Tokyo lofts down the life that will be under $250k. Those are the only ones I can think of that may have that price range.

Hi Billy,

I am a downtown agent. I have been living and working downtown for the past ten years and have extensive knowledge of all buildings and neighborhoods. It's possible to purchase for under $250,000 but you will need a lot of patience. The market has changed everywhere, including downtown and one of the biggest obstacles now is inventory. There is no inventory and no plans to develop condo's for at least the next three years. Low inventory means multiple offers, usually over asking price. As well, short sales and foreclosures are almost a thing of the past. This is the market you would find a loft under $250,000. There is a unit just listed in the last couple of days of Little Tokyo Lofts and is listed at $215,000. It is a short sale. Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to add you to my client list and notify you when properties list in your price range.
