Los Feliz is a wonderful and highly sought after part of LA to reside in. The area is known mostly for being tucked underneath Griffith Park, the largest park in LA, which is a lush and beautiful oasis in the middle of the big city.

In addition to Griffith Park, the downtown area known as Los Feliz Village is between Los Feliz Blvd and Franklin Ave on Vermont and Hillhurst Ave. There are a myriad of cool shops, great restaurants and infamous bars to keep you very busy! there is also a nearby farmers market once a week and everything you need, including freeways is close by.

I highly recommend it as one of the best places to live in LA.

First, is the portion of your lot that you are going to sell a full buildable size lot with no variance required. If it is, then go to a local realtor, county or local assessor where sales are recorded and look up recent lot sales in your neighborhood. This comparison method will leave you with no doubt. If the lot is not sufficient to be built on, just a portion that a neighbor wants, it will be worth far less then a buildable lot. Use the same method as I described above but compare them to only non-buildable partial lots. They sell for far less then a buildable lot. Depending on your area and market demand, several mediums of measurement could be utilized. Price per acre, price per front foot, and price per square foot. Good luck, it is not hard. ... more

You can check your local community college(s), they often do run classes, check the local public libraries, check with the local high schools--they may offer evening programs, etc.

I'm not sure if it's proper protocal to promote other websites on this forum but I use neighborhood scout for detailed information such as what you are requesting. I've provided the link below. Also, there are fixers EVERYWHERE even in the Hollywood Hills. The real question is how much are you willing to pay for a fixer. Retail price or dealing owner direct. The trick is locating them before knowledge of their availability hits the masses or the MLS. This can often be a full time job and may require a ... more

Sure, we'll give you her address, and the hours that she's leaving it unattended.

I know where you can find the $135 million one, if you're ever in NYC.

That's a real tough question.

What you consider "safe" may be different from what another person's point of view is.

There are many real nice homes and areas around Hollywood Hills.

LA is a hustle & bustle type of city. If you don't mind that, then it would be a nice move for you. Alot warmer than MA anyway.

Best wishes!

Hello Kath,

Because this is a sensitive issue, most Realtors will not feel comfortable telling people who lives at a home. The best way to find out for sure is just to go by the home and knock on the door or write a note. There are just too many nuts out there. I'm sure your not one of them but I hope you understand.

Deborah Bremner answered:
Hi Doug,
Great question! First of all, she needs a sales license. That's her jumping off point.
Next, I would ask her where her passion lies. Each aspect of real estate has its own unique qualities, and hence, its own set of buyers and sellers. Does she like to crunch numbers? Very analytical? Maybe she should work the commercial side. Loves to talk with lenders? REO and Foreclosures, or asset managers. Very emotional, and a "people person"? Maybe first time buyers. What is her age and social circle? There are hundreds of niches to be served by the right agent, but above all, it takes a passion for what you are doing. You must be in it to serve.
Real Estate is eminently rewarding, but it is not easy, and not for the thin skinned. She must be able to know her own self, and handle rejection.
I would love to talk with her, and give some mentoring advice. In addition, I would suggest she go to to see how the very best in the business are being coached.

In most cases, city inspectors will give you 30 days notice depending on the city. People occupying garage conversions are treated as tenants.

Of course, all the time! If you are curious about this specific property, it is not currently listed for rent. This probably means that the owner has not considered it seriously yet. It may also be listed by the owner on craigslist. If you are looking for rentals, I am the top leasing agent in the area. Drop me a line and I'll send you whats available. ... more
