Years ago one of my clients said, "I'm sure the day will come when I don't want to work 60 hours a week." I nodded and wondered where he was going with the conversation. He continued, "I'm thinking about purchasing income property.  Is that something you can help me with?" "Yes"  was my short answer.  I went on to say we have helped several residential clients purchase income properties in the South Bay of Los Angeles, and have listed income properties as well.   When purchasing income properties in Los Angeles, or units as they are often referred to, it is important to know several communities fall under Los Angeles Rent Control.  Rent control adds another layer, actually several layers, of additional rules and regulations landlords must adhere to with properties subject to rent contr...

According to RE-Insider in an article published 8/14/14, the luxury real estate market is outpacing the rest of the California housing market by a wide margin.  "While home sales throughout much of California have remained flat throughout this spring and early summer, a new study has indicated that multimillion dollar homes are selling in record numbers, offering hope that the market is still improving and prompting many to wonder what’s holding the rest of the market back." The article went on to state the 2014 luxury home market year to date is up over 9% from 2013 numbers.  On the other hand, the rest of the market is down by over 7% for the same time period.  Obviously, separate forces are driving different segments of the housing market.  These number illustrate there can be sever...

By Keith Kyle Although every home sale is different, as Realtors, our primary goal when listing a home is to get it sold for our clients at the highest price, with the process as smooth as possible. But there are so many advantages to having listings and in my eyes it always pays to go the extra mile both for our clients and from a business growth perspective.  When we sell homes, especially luxury homes, we are not only showcasing the home, but we are showcasing ourselves as Realtors as well.  Whether it be through staging and presentation of the home, or the photography and marketing materials, we have the ability to differentiate ourselves from other Realtors that just may not go the extra mile, and this is an advantage that we should take full advantage of.  Each listing and how we ...
