The Median Sold Price for Bel Air- Holmby Hills is up by 55%! Posted on Mar 30, 2015 by Endre Barath in Bel Air Market Reports |  The Median Sold Price for Bel Air-Holmby Hills is up by an incredible 55%! As most of you know Bel Air has some incredible Price Points.  The Median Sold Price in February 2014 was around $1.1million that is about a $650k+/- increase for February 2015. I can hardly wait to see how March fared. All I can tell you is at every office meeting I heard multiple offers and agent grousing that they missed out on sales with their buyers.         If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Bev...

The Ides of March: Et tu Brute.....(you too Brutus) these words have been etched into our memory banks thanks to  William Shakespeare and movies about the Roman times. Some of us will always wonder how accurate these events were, no matter what, March 15th will always be remembered as the Assassination of Julius Caesar!     Gaius Julius Caesar was a Roman general, statesman, Consul, and notable author of Latin prose. He played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire. Wikipedia Born: July 12, 100 BC, Rome, Italy Full name: Gaius Julius Caesar Assassinated: March 15, 44 BC, Theatre of Pompey   Clearly this was mega drama in real like on March 15ht, 44 BC as well as when Shakespear wrote the play....   Now if you want Dram...

3 Fast Feng Shui Office Tip to Improve Working Energy (Part 1)     1. Do your best to arrange your desk in a “commanding position”. This meaning you can see who is entering into your space at all time. This also symbolically represents seeing opportunities as they arise.   2. If you can, allow a good amount of natural light or use full spectrum lighting (sun light) in your workplace. It's advised to lesson the use of fluorescent lights.     There are a number of negative health effects that have been linked to working under fluorescent lights that are theorized to be caused by this body chemistry mechanism such as:   Migraines Eye strain Problems sleeping, due to melatonin suppression Symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder or depression Endocrine disruption and poor immune systems Migr...

2400 Beverly Glen Blvd Vacant Land:  Pending!  I do not know about you, I am very superstitious, I do not put properties Pending until the Buyer Removes all his contingencies. Before that I just keep "accepting back up offers" in the MLS. Finally yesterday I was confident enought to put the Pending Sign on the Yard Sign.   Spoke to the buyer and once we close I can keep the SOLD Rider on it until he gets approvals to build. This is huge. To have my SOLD sign for a Year up is like Free Advertisement!

Too many of us are so quick to fall in line with what others want of us (let that be family, friends, society). Have you asked yourself what you want ? Or more so, what do you need? This is your life, not theirs. For me this has been an on going "battle" with certain people in my life. And that could be said for just about all of us, of course stories varying and characters changed.  Going against the "norm" and following your own path is no an easy journey. It scares others and it demands bravery and courage  from within. Sometimes you may feel as if you stand alone, but remember you are not. Call it God, call it the Universe, call it your collective soul family (higher self), whatever it may be, just know there is a much stronger power that stands with you.  If you are so driven and f...

A few years ago I wasn't really on board with Twitter. I didn't think it was very important. It was early on and there wasn't much of a practical use for it at the time. But that has changed.I notice that a lot of business owners have abandoned their accounts and this is a mistake. Let me tell you quickly why I like it and how it can help you.1. Your Tweets Live On - Your tweets will pop up on Google results in about a week. Think as you tweet so your messages pop up in the places that will best serve you. In the early days tweets were nothing more than a novelty. Now they have a functional purpose. They can contain a link to your main site and talk about your business. The idea here is to have your tweet  - re-tweeted by someone else to create more engagements.   2. Twitter Analytics ...

What is the value of a Vacant Land in Bel Air: the coveted 90077 zip code?     This sounds like an easy question, but a difficult one to answer. The other day I had an appraiser call me from out of area and wanted to know why and how I priced a vacant lot in Bel Air? Needless to say after a five minute conversation it was clear to me he was not from the area, never the less I felt it was my duty to give him help and have him price the property correctly. I had to explain to him that it makes a huge difference if the Land is on Beverly Glen Blvd vs. if it is on Bellagio Rd. same sized lot could be  worth a couple hundred thousand dollars vs. on Bellagio Rd it could be worth a couple million dollars. Yes it is location, noise and comparable values of future homes. Ironically he was gettin...

Trying to submit an offer and my laptop crashes….. Today was a stressful afternoon, my Windows was running slow, so I tried to reboot a few times finally I got annoyed and figured I shut it off…keep in mind I am about to submit an offer on a $5.3million dollar listing.  As I am about to shut down, Windows tells me that there are”... 14 updates…”  generally that is a 15 minute maximum event…Not today it took two hours to finally update the 14 updates. When the computer shut off, I immediately turned it on and that is when trouble started. Numerous attempts later it was clear that the Windows update killed the laptop. Now it has been 2.5 hrs and I am overdue to submit the offer. The good news was Diane left her laptop at home so I called to see if I could use hers…. 45 minutes later offer...
