Homes for Sale in LEIMERT PARK...

Well Folks...

The inventory in Leimert Park is finally perking up, but so are the prices!  Either way, in my opinion, it's still the best buy in L.A. with regards to the amount of space, proximity to great amenities and abundance of brilliant character.  For real!

Here is my favorite pick from the list.  Totally gorgeous!! 
It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, Spanish Style home on Edgehill Drive--in the heart of Leimert Park.  
It's 1,529sf and a 4,620 lost size).  Listed for $719,000 (by Power Brokers International)

The First Offer in is the BEST ONE...

Hi Home Buyers!
Are you tired of guessing when you should submit your offer when you know there will be multiple offers on the house you love?  My advise--be brave and be the first in line!!
Trending Now: A lot of listing agents are subscribing to the idea that the first offer in is usually the best offer. This is important because listing agents are there to guide and advise their seller clients on which offer to select. With that said, BUYERS--try not to hesitate when you find your perfect home. Put your best foot forward in regards to your price, terms and being the first offer on the table. It's the best way to separate yourself from the competition and show sellers that you mean business.  
Because inventory is so low, especially in the Crenshaw District, coming in strong from the start is the best way to go.  
Even if you're not the highest offer overall, odds are good that once all the offers are in, you may get a second chance with a counter offer.  
And remember, if you really love the house say it with price--it's not worth loosing the fight over a few thousand dollars, which may ultimately only mean $50-100 more on your monthly payment.  Talk to your loan officer, break it down. Everything must be "Dollarized" in Real Estate! It's the only way to win.

4169 Leimert Blvd. Leimert Park 90008
Listed for $550,000
Sold for $575,000!!!!

Yes, this past summer saw a ridiculous hike in prices in South Los Angeles, particularly in Leimert Park and the surrounding enclaves of the Crenshaw Community.  Homes were going as high as $730,000 - something no one could have speculated...but it doesn't seem as though things are calming down just yet.  

Need proof? Read for yourself - here are excerpts from Heather's recent interviews in the L.A. Times and LA Weekly.

The Expo Line is soon to complete its westward expansion to the beach, and the southern leg of the railway, headed to the airport, is still stretching its way underground.   Even though construction has disrupted traffic along the Crenshaw Corridor, all cash investors and exhausted homebuyers are keeping a keen eye open hoping for new new listings to pop up in and around Leimert Park,  Park Mesa Heights and even further south in Inglewood as the announcement of the new NFL stadium has values soaring 67%!!!!
Artist's rendering - proposed Raider's Stadium
Bottom line: It's a great time to sell.  There are still multiple offers pouring in that can get property owners over their asking price. Remember that having a good agent who knows the market, the community and the local agents is crucial to getting top dollar and a having a smooth transaction.
