I'd look at is as a chance to start over with your move. Sell the house, build for your future. It's sad to lose what you've put in, but you won't be losing anymore once you sell.

Glad things are looking up for you!

Is the property located in upper or lower Portuguese Bend? I'm thinking it would rent for approximately $3500-4000 depending on the condition of the property.

Hi Dave,

Each building within Playa Vista has their own rules and regulations. Some allow Dirct TV, but dictate that it may not be attached to the buildings, must be on a rear facing patio or balony, etc.

If you already own, check with your building's management, or if you're looking to buy, your agent can get this information for you.

Since very little, as far as new homes, are being built out in the Santa Clarita Valley right now, it could put downward pressure on the supply of homes for sale if all of the new jobs created make local homebuyers out of those employees. Downward pressure on the supply of homes from the new demand, could push home prices higher hypothetically. At the very least, it can create multiple offer situations. We'll see what happens. It appears on the surface to be a win win for the Santa Clarita Valley. ... more

Hello Doug,

I am not a Real Estate Professional in Socal but my market in Las Vegas is very similar in that the Pricing Bubble of 2007/Bad Economy effected both of us. I cannot predict the future, however, my humble opinion is that it is going to be a long while (maybe two years or longer) before the Real Estate market starts increasing with any large gains anywhere around the West Coast. ... more

The condo market has been hit hard from a sales standpoint and prices are very affordable. Same goes for our 1-4 unit buildings. If they are priced right as anything they will sell. If you are talking about renting apartments in the Shore, we have not had a problem renting in that area, our office is there and we get lots of walk-ins for rent.

Hopefully this answer your question, but if you are looking for answers to something else, please feel free to contact me. I have worked the Belmont Shore area from selling individual units to investment properties & residential homes for 30 years. We have a property manager who handles rentals for our clients too.

Of course, swapping properties (aka horse trading) and bartering predate paper currency by tens of thousands of years. Besides, it's one of the best ways to build and preserve equity in times like these. ... more
