What to do about cars in the driveway or power lines in the photo? Your handy-dandy graphic designer (or you if you are talented!) can virtally erase cars, lines, light poles, etc from your photo before you spend the big bucks on flyers and postcards!   The owner of this home collected old sports cars. Some of them did not run, like the one in the driveway! He had it towed to his new home after we closed escrow, but in the meantime we worked some magic with "erasing" it for the flyers and postcards! ***************************************************************************** If you are looking for a home or desiring to sell your home in the Conejo Valley communities of Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills and Newbury Park, CALIFORNIA, contact Kathy Smiley with Prudential Calif...

The thing I love the most about Westlake Village, California, is.. if you can't guess... ta-da! WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA WEATHER! Yes, it's nearly always sunny and warm here. Well, last week we did receive some much needed rain... Thank goodness, because So Cal is in a major drought - our reservoirs and lakes are so low and the foliage and brush is quite brown and dry in certain areas. It's going to take a lot more rain to ease the drought, but hey, just a little rain goes a long way to green up my town! Take a look at last week's clouds & storms over Los Angeles! In LA, we don't get rain very often, so when we do it's a major news story! The skyline is beautiful, though, isn't it? Los Angeles is only about 30 miles from Westlake Village, but when you live here it feels like you are living ...

On the Los Angeles County border line, just South of Ventura, we find the quaint little lakeside town of Westlake Village, well known for its fine dining restaurants.   One of the most notable restaurants in Westlake Village is The Landing Grill & Sushi Bar.    The restaurant has patio dining which looks out over a gorgeous, relaxing view of a lake dotted with the activities of yachts, motor boats, and sail boats, as well as hillsides cascaded with beautiful homes.                A popular saying that describes The Landing Grill & Sushi Bar is, “Come for the view and stay for the food".  If you are a sushi fan, The Landing Grill & Sushi Bar is noted for its scrumptious sushi that can compete with or excel over any Japanese sushi bar in the Los Angeles area.  If you are not really into t...

2013 Real Estate Market Report for theSouthshore Hills Tract in Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village, CA 2013 was a slower year for sales in Southshore Hills, compared to 2012 2013 was a slower year for sales in the Southshore Hills tract of homes, located in Westlake Village, CA. Just 10 homes sold, 4 of which were distressed sales. In 2012, 15 homes sold in Southshore Hills, with no distressed sales at all. The average price of sold homes in 2013 was $776,500, compared to $839,000 in 2012. Since three of the homes sold in 2013 were short sales, and one was an REO, the lower price definately makes sense. Average price per square foot was lower in 2013 than 2012 also - $311 per s.f. compared to $330. Average days on market increased from 48 to 84, again likely due to longer processing tim...

This week the median list price for a single family home in the city of  WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA is $1,582,000.00  Inventory has been lightening lately and the Market Action index has been trending up.  Though days-on-market is increasing, these are mildly positive indications for the market.     Supply and Demand:  The market has been consistently cool for several weeks.  Demand levels are low relative to the available inventory.  It's a Buyer's market and prices continue to fall.   Look for a persistent shift in the Market Action before prices plateau or begin to rise again.       Carmela's mission is not only to SELL your home--QUICKLY--but to do what's best for your bottom line; that means selling your home for MORE. Location is important but to get top dollar for your home pricing it ...
