BUYERS: How to Buy Your Own Little Piece of L.A.
30 Wednesday Jul 2014
Searching for a home in Highland Park, Silver Lake, Eagle Rock or Mt. Washington? You and everybody else.
Thanks to Forbes, the L.A. Times and Redfin, our sizzling Eastside hoods spent all of 2012 and 2013 under the national spotlight–making an already tough market, nearly impenetrable for buyers looking to plant roots and not flip.
What’s a regular buyer to do? Luckily, to buy a house, you only need two little things! If you’ve made up your mind to buy a house, the first thing you’ll need is 1) a loan pre-approval. With homes literally flying off the market, it’s imperative that you’re prepared because the gems (great locations, looks, price) will sell within 7-14 days.
Lastly, and probably most important, you’ll need 2) an awesome real estate agent, may I suggest me :), to guide you through sometimes choppy Eastside waters and get you safely to your new front door. Questions? Ask away!
Need a great lender referral?
My preferred lenders are nice, approachable, great at explaining and hand holding. They’ll go battle for you to get your loan through underwriting, so have a quick chat to determine the best fit.
