Only if you can get a steal. You need to find a lender and get pre-qualified first. Also pull your own credit and see if there is anything funky there. If you are testing different lenders, use that report rather than letting them each pull a report. Then when you are ready to select one, they will pull it for you. ... more

Hi Seely,

I lived in Cheviot Hills for a very long time and also have a lot of clients purchasing there. Are you thinking of selling your home? I don't think that days on market is a good indicator whether or not your home will sell in the 90064 zip code. There are so many buyers looking for homes in that neighborhood, specifically young families, because Overland Elementary is one of top rated schools in the LAUSD. If your home is priced appropriately, it will sell very quickly, even in this market. I am still seeing homes in that neighborhood go for over the asking price. There are definitely a lot of homes in the area that a very overpriced, and those are staying on the market for quite a while.

Hello Helen,

I understand you concern. It could get worse. At the end of the day if you aren't planning on moving out of your home quickly you are protected. No guarantees but home values have gone up in Southern California. The home I grew up in in 1962 was sold for 30k and now is worth 2 mil. You never know when you are at the bottom of the market. The 8k credit is only good through the end of the year so get in while it's still an incentive. Even if values go down eventually they will go up above what you paid.

Did you even read the report, it doesn't cover all markets and all markets are not down to 2003 levels.

Hi Don, Why are you interested in the Los Angeles Market conditions, do you intend to buy there, to sell there?
Just give us a bit more information. The answers will also depend on what kind and type and size of property and what price range and location. So you need to be a little bit more specific..... Just because at this time of them market areas, subdivisions, cities and neighborhoods and price ranges and types of properties all are different in the way they sell and how many of them are on the market and where the pricing currently is!

So if you can specify a little bit why you are interested then we can provide some information although nobody, no Realtor as a crystal ball to foresee the future in the real estate market but in California in general prices hiked up a lot more that elsewhere and consequently are coming down harder.

Once I hear back from you I would like to connect you with a partner agent of mine in the Los Angeles area (so let me know your reasons for asking the question) that Realtor will be very helpful to assist you in your decision making process.

Steven Ornellas answered:
M, the statistical measures of Average and Median are two different measures. Average is the typical calc we are all familiar with: Add up the sum of all number and divide by the number of samples. Median, on the other hand is defined as “the number separating the higher half of a sample from the lower half." This measure has no regard for any of the specifics you may be searching for.

The good ol' fashioned CMA gives you the best representation of market price/activity/trend direction - for the specific property details you search on.

Hi Bjoern,

Here are statistics for the area:

Single family homes are selling at a median price of $241,600 vs. $455,000 nearly a year ago. Condos are $300,000 vs. $242,000.

Keep in mind, there are many REOs and Short Sales in the area which is bringing down single family home values. On the other hand, the new Bedford Parc & Promenade development is helping condo values rise.

Please contact me if you need any additional information.

; answered:
Nathaniel, the unfortunate "reality" for some sellers is that they owe more than the current market value, and are unable or unwilling to pay out of pocket to close. As long as this is the case, the foreclosures will continue- why not look into properties that are already bank owned, or priced right, until things settle down? That 30% "profit" could well be in the form of a second mortgage that has to be paid off- the profit has been spent. ... more

Downtown LA is have billions of dollars invested in bringing it into this Century and making a destination location again. Of course my crystal ball is broken, however I believe that those who find great deals in Downtown real estate in the coming year(s) will probably be happy they did.

KFWB produced an exclusive on the Downtown LA marketplace just this week. I have provided the link below. It has some very interesting information which some would view as bad and others would view as opportunity. Listen and decide what you hear. And Dare to Dream.

Monique and Joe Carrabba answered:
Hello Todd,

In LA, especially on the Westside, Brentwood, Palisades and Venice/Santa Monica, single family homes are still up (prices). Volume/the number of sales is down. Their just doesn't seem to be a shortage of people that can afford these homes. Condo prices (in most areas have dropped slightly. You can never know for sure, but if home prices don't fall in any areas, I would would bet on West LA, Brentwood and Palisades (and other Westside areas surviving and staying strong.

Ray Calnan answered:
Trulia and many other online tools may not always be 100% accurate. In many cases the information is put in by people when the property is listed and may not reflect accurate information when it is sold. Additionally, the county assessor's site is often months behind in updated the information.

What should you do???
You can contact an appraiser for information about sales, but it will cost you.
You can contact an agent which may or may not cost you.
Your best solution is to use the information you found from Trulia et al. and go to the assessor's office to verify the information. They have the recorded deeds in the system much faster than we have it available online.

I am glad to see that you are taking advantage of Prop. 8. Make sure to spread the word to your friends and family.

Please call with questions.
Good Luck.
