Labels: , , , , , , , ,

**PENDING**

The completely remodeled Westwood Hills home at 11158 Ophir Dr., LA CA 90024 lasted 19 days on the market before receiving an accepted offer on 11/21/11. The home was listed on 11/02/11 for $1,895,000. The last time this home sold, back in 2009 for $1,861,000, it sold over the asking price by $62k. In my opinion, this done, done, done home's best feature maybe it's extra large gourmet kitchen with vaulted ceilings, skylights, top of the line stainless appliances, a butchers block center island, breakfast area and more... According to the MLS, the home is a 3 bedroom / 3 bath, 3,159 sf of living space on a 10,214 sf lot. Will be interesting to see what this sells for in light of it's recent 2009 sale price and current asking price.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

The Westwood home at 2252 Linnington Ave, LA CA 90064 received a price reduction this week of 4.7% or $54,000, down to $1,095,000. Listed 26 days ago for $1,149,000, this is the 1st price reduction of the current listing. This traditional house looks to have a fair amount of remodeling done to it and is in move-in type condition. The one downfall I see in this home is the 2+den status instead of full 3 bedroom home. It looks like the garage has been converted to a home office, complete with french doors and a/c & heat. According to the MLS, the home is a 2 bedroom / 2.5 bath, 1,744 sf of living space on a 6,750 sf lot.

Little Holmby Tennis Court Estate Hits Market At 10478 Wyton Dr

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Little Holmby tennis court estate hits the market at 10478 Wyton Dr, LA CA 90024. By doing a quick satellite mapping scan with Google Maps or Bing Maps, one can see there are only a handful of homes that have a tennis court in Little Holmby, let alone a tennis court and a pool. While the average lot size in Little Holmby is the biggest in Westwood, there are very few lots that could afford to have the luxury of a tennis court and a pool. So this property is very much on the rare side and could be a limited opportunity for someone seeking a house in this location with these features. There is even a charming little guesthouse in the back of the property behind the tennis court. The main house was redone in 2000 and is in mostly move-in type condition. According to the MLS, the home is 4 bedroom / 3.5 bath, 3,290 sf of living, on a 17,119 sf lot. Asking price is $3,495,000.

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For At 901 Malcolm Ave

What Did That Westwood Little Holmby Home Sell For?

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 901 Malcolm Ave., LA CA 90024 lasted 117 days on the market before accepting an offer on 10/10/11. Those 117 days are just over double the average time on market to sell for a Westwood home in 2011. 901 Malcolm Ave was listed on 6/14/11 for $2,200,000 and received two large price reductions during it's listing term, finally ending up at $1,850,000.
In my opinion, they should have never been above $1.8m if they wanted to sell in the first place. This is a good example of pricing the home right to start with and market time in action. When the seller reduced to $1.850m, it took about the average market time to sell this house, approximately 50 days. This home was a little bit harder to sell because of the heavy fixer condition and exact location of the house within the neighborhood. On 11/15/11, 901 Malcolm Ave closed for $1,620,000.

According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 4.5 bath, 4,643 sq ft of living space on a 8,276 sq ft lot.

How's The Market In Westwood Little Holmby?

How's The Market In Westwood Little Holmby?

Over the last few weeks the market activity in the highest priced (most desirable) Westwood neigbhorhood, Little Holmby, has been very active. We have seen many of the high end homes sell quickly after coming to market, some with multiple offers, and the low end keep pace with a multiple offer situation of it's own. Inventory has been at +/- 10 active homes in Little Holmby for a few months now, so that has kept limited options available for willing buyers. Just like what is going on throughout Westwood and other Westside neighborhoods, homes that are well priced will sell fairly quickly. In fact, of the ~127 listings that have closed escrow in Westwood in 2011, 35 or 28% spent less than 10 days on the market, 58 or 46% spend 20 or less days on the market and 71 or 56% spent 1 month or less on the market before selling.
According to the sales data year-to-date, Little Holmby's average sales price in 2011 is $2,249,837, down only a nominal 0.2% in average sales price over 2010 ytd and down about ~20% since peak of market in 2007.

Recent Multiple Offer Situation

The Westwood Little Holmby home at 835 Warner Ave LA CA 90024 came to market about 3 weeks ago with an asking price of $1,399,000. After the trustees' per-determined allotted market time of 19 days, the home received a half dozen or so offers and just went pending. According to the MLS, the home is a 3+3, 2,501 sf on a 9,539 sf lot. Most people would consider this a fixer type home or even a teardown. Had the Trustees been willing to accept an offer upon coming to market, this home would have sold in the first week. So often the reported DOM's are longer than the realty of the situation.


Just a few doors down, 853 Warner Ave LA CA 90024 just came on the market with an asking price of $1,399,000. According to the MLS, the stats are just slightly smaller than the one up above, at 3+2.5, 2,125 sf of living space on a 8,189 sf lot. After walking through both, 853 Warner Ave looks to be in much better livable condition with a vintage feel. I would be shocked if this home doesn't get multiples this upcoming week.

If you haven't been, Clementines is a family owned business with wonderful fresh baked goods.

Listed 33 days ago for $1,549,000, this is the 1st price reduction of the listing term.

A nice feature that I really enjoy about this house is the very private wrap around yard that is made for entertaining. The living room opens up to a nice side courtyard area, that features an outdoor fireplace, which can lead around to the backyard. If your looking for a remodeled Old World Spanish house that can be fun to entertain in, this is a house not to be missed.

What Did That Westwood Home Sell For?

The approved short sale at 2377 Selby Ave  LA CA 90064 closed this past week after being on and off the market during 2011. Unless your behind the scenes on the deal, it's hard to really detail the exact events that happen during a short sale listing period. In this case, the home was listed low at $999,900 back in February of this year and received a few offers. After pending lender approval, some price increases and reductions, and several failed so called escrow periods, it looks like the final accepted offer happened back in August. On 10/28/11, 2377 Selby Ave sold for $1,000,000.
According to the MLS, the home is a 4 bedroom / 3 bath, 1,795 sq ft of living space on a 6,750 sq ft lot.
