Metro and Walsh/Shea Corridor Contractors tonight will close Crenshaw Boulevard, between Jefferson Boulevard and Coliseum Street, for 30 days to begin excavation of Crenshaw/Expo underground station for the Crenshaw/LAX light rail line.
Metro encourages residents, commuters, business owners and shoppers to plan ahead to avoid delays.
"Because we planned ahead, Carmageddon never happened on the 405, so let's plan ahead on Crenshaw. This is a critical step to delivering an infrastructure investment to build a stronger South L.A. and a stronger regional transportation network for us all," said Los Angeles Mayor and Metro Board Chair Eric Garcetti. ...READ MORE HERE

Hi Everybody! You’ve heard it from real estate agents before. “The Winter season is slow.” Or, “No one is really buying or selling.” And even, “I’ll get started in the New Year, it’s a new start right?”
Well... The truth is, it’s better to be ahead than behind. Do you want to have income in January? The winter months are the perfect opportunity for you to list your home and sell it with less competition.
Here's a list of the top 10 reasons why you should sell during the holiday season:
10. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to beat out competition in the Springwhen there are traditionally more houses on the market which could ultimately drive prices down. This could mean you sell high and buy low.
9. You can sell now for more money and ask for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.
8. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days around the Holidays.
7. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transfers cannot wait until Spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture the market.
6. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.
5. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a work week.
4. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price.
3. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.
2. When supply goes down it means there is a greater opportunity to attract motivated buyers AND a better sales price for you. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you.
And the number one reason why your seller should list during the Holidays …
1. People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!
I'd love to invite you to my Hopeful Home Buyer's Tour! I teach my Buyer's TO DO List to first time home buyers so that they know the basics of the purchase process and what to expect upfront, before they start their search. Everything is explained in layman's terms and you can ask me anything you've ever wanted to know about buying your first home!
Also, my team of loan officers (see below) will be present to establish a game plan for the financing (the foundation for the transaction).
After we review the list, we serve a yummy lunch and then we'll actually go see 3 homes in Leimert Park--not for the purpose of actually buying, but for first timers to build hope and vision for the purchasing process. This event is totally FREE!!! Next month it we will charge $10.
Please reach out to me if you or someone you know would like to attend my Hopeful Home Buyer's Tour:
Date: Saturday, September 27th
Time: 12noon to 2pm
Location: My Home in Leimert Park (Address provided when you RSVP)
