Sounds like a popular sentiment from many of my investor clients from early 2011. They're not even thinking of trying that now.

Mr. Bemis died in 1968. The current owners have lived there since 1964. The house was built in 1931. The people that would know the most about this home, are the current owners. Why don't you write them a letter, or knock on their door. Im curious, why do you care? ... more

Hello Vancouver,

Normally in LA the property taxes are 1.25% of the price YOU paid for the property.
for other areas, you should contact either a realtor or an escrow company in that area.
closing costs for a normal transaction should run about 3% of the purchase price, but it depends on small variables. Ask your agent.

Want more specifics? call me directly. I am a Los Feliz agent. Have been for past 20 years.

Happy home buying !

The most desirable neighborhood in Los Feliz is, without a doubt, "The Oaks".

Ute Ferdig - Atty. Negotiator answered:
Hello Daniel. That's a very good question and I think the answer will depend on the individual and what kind of a view is involved since not all views are created equally. In my experience, for resale purposes, a view does not add nearly as much as people hope for. It's similar to a pool. People like to have the pool, but they don't want to pay much extra for it. I think it would be interesting to hear from an appraiser on this issue. I would also want to know what a view is worth in a lawsuit (I know people have sued when their view was blocked by new construction). It will be interesting to see how others answer your question. ... more

Los Feliz like the Sunset Strip and Hollywood Hills has alot of Industry people. This keeps the market strong. My feeling is that we are coming to the low end of this cycle and if you find something you truly love, strongly consider it. With the interest rates where they are if you are a strong buyer and plan on living in the home at least 5 years, you will be glad you made the move!
I am very familiar with the Los Feliz area. If you would like me to send you some active listings that fit your criteria, please let me know.
Thank you ,
Jill Lowy

hi howard. i grew up in los angeles. lived right in the city, probably 10 minutes from beverly hills. while i only visit there once a month these days, when i lived there a few years ago the commute to beverly hills was always a pain (except in off hours). it's not easily accessed by any freeway so during rush hour it's troublesome. i imagine heading in from the pasadena direction could only make it worse since there tends to be more inbound traffic in the AM hours to los angeles area then outbound traffic. however, i always traveled using the 405. not sure how the 101 would be.

the best way to head into the city from the valley during rush hours is by "going over the hill" - ie, by taking the streets. there are some pretty quick short cuts through the mountains.

Diane McDonald answered:
"Hip, up and coming" is relative. Someone on the westside might view Los Feliz/SilverLake/Echo Park as up and coming, while most Eastsiders know those areas have been coming up for years. They ARE hip, no matter where you're coming from. :) Price can be deceiving in the MLS because Atwater Village is lumped in with Los Feliz, and Atwater sells much lower. ... more
