7 Things L.A. Eastside Buyers Should Know Now

Silver Lake $595k: You can't get a house this size or condition, but you can get this condo

Hyper local real estate news from the Eastside of Los Angeles for Buyers:
– Inventory is very low for quality homes under $499k
– Competition is fierce, the market is up and there are more buyers out there
– I’d never recommend a condo, unless, you’re buying in a hot area (see below)
– If you’re 70% sure on a home that’s priced well, move on it, you may not get a 2nd chance
– Be open to non-flipped homes in great areas; you can do the work yourself
– FHA loans give you a small down payment, but a big monthly MI fee
– Get an agent who knows your area, not Long Beach or the Westside
