Is it really possible to sell listings virtually?

The world has changed a lot in the last 6 months. So has selling real estate. Open houses are banned and physical showings of a property might not even be possible, and they could even put your listing at risk with random people touring a home.

Real estate marketing: 5 tips for telling an authentic brand story

Real estate marketing matters — that’s a given. Your approach to real estate marketing is what sets you apart from the competition. It also shapes how your clients perceive your business. Anyone can have a pretty website and consistent social media presence, but if the story your brand tells on those platforms is inauthentic, it’s not going to resonate.

Coronavirus cuts Southern California housing permits to 8-year low

Southern California builders slashed construction plans as coronavirus hammered the economy. My trusty spreadsheet, filled with federal stats tracking the building permits developers file, found steep drops in planning in Los Angeles and Orange counties and statewide in the second quarter. More modest drops occurred in Riverside and San Bernardino counties during the April-to-June period. “Stay at home” orders designed to slow the spread of the pandemic made home selling and construction tricky....

Decade of rent hikes end in L.A., Orange counties

Almost 10 years of sustained rent hikes came to an end in Los Angeles and Orange counties during the spring, thanks in part to the coronavirus pandemic and to new construction. Following 39 quarters of rent increases, the average asking rent for an L.A. County apartment fell $33 a month in the spring from the winter quarter, dropping to $2,122, figures from the Southern California News Group rent index shows. L.A. County rent also dropped $1 from the spring of 2019. By comparison, Los Angeles la...

Inland Empire has nation’s biggest drop in homes for sale

The supply of existing homes for sale in the Inland Empire has fallen the most among 50 major U.S. markets tracked by Zillow. Homeowners across the region, and the nation, have largely refused to put their homes on the market in the pandemic era, fearful of having strangers inside and the challenges of finding a new place to live. Riverside and San Bernardino’s 42.1% drop in supply for the year ending July 25 was just ahead of Baltimore, down 42%, and Hartford, off 39.6%. Los Angeles and Orange ...

This Queens bowling alley is an anachronism and an oasis

Astoria Bowl is a something of landmark in the Queens borough of New York City, a struggling business inside a massive building where time has seemingly stopped. Turtle Down Films created this lovely short documentary (shot before COVID-19) about this "anachronism, a vestige of the sport's mid-century heyday era... an oasis in the truest sense of the word, a place of pure recreation and levity in a city where life tends to be serious and weighty." This is A Place To Bowl.

Self-employed landlords battle harder for home-loan approvals

All Fullerton residents Scott and Tina Foley, longtime clients of mine, wanted to do was refinance a rental property. They did it before. Easy, right? After an exhausting process, they thought they were finally at the mortgage funding finish line when one more phone call came. One more question. The loan funder asked if Tina was currently employed at their jointly owned construction firm. “Why would you ask?” the Foleys incredulously asked. “Oh, let me look,” said the funder. “You got stuck with...

There’s stress. And then there’s logistics

Let’s not beat around the bush. Buying and selling houses is stressful. Especially if you live in the house you are selling and plan to move into the house you are buying. Here’s a case study of how complicated the logistics can become, and how stressful the whole process can be. No names will be mentioned to protect the already stressed-out home sellers moving to a new home across the country. I’m not a representative of a moving company, have never driven a moving van, and never packed a movin...

HOA Homefront: Can short-term rentals pay for property wear and tear?

Q: Our CC&Rs state that a rental must be at least 30 days. We have recently found several (web-based short-term) rentals in our complex that are just day to day rentals. I wrote to the Internet company and they replied that they would not take any action. How can they not take some responsibility for making sure the owners of the places they rent out are not illegal?  — R.F., Orange A: Your HOA should enforce its CC&Rs. The Internet company is happy to make money on short-term rentals, regardles...

"Hey Siri, play music."

I said into my AirPods. So nonspecific! I was out and about and not in a good position to skip things, but I was also forcing myself to accept whatever it was that I had put into my iPhone music library. I have so many audiobooks, but they're in a different app, so it's only rarely that spoken word comes up when I'm playing the "Music" app randomly. I can tell Siri to skip a track, so it's not as though I'd need to dig the iPhone out of my bag and squint to read it in the sunlight. But I sometim...

Vote planned to end California’s eviction ban

A statewide moratorium on evicting tenants during the coronavirus pandemic could end in the next 2 ½ weeks, triggering what some fear could be “a wave of evictions” unless lawmakers reinstate the ban. California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, who chairs the state Judicial Council, announced Friday, July 27, she plans to hold a vote “very soon,” ending the ban on Aug. 14. She said it’s up to the governor and state lawmakers to fashion future tenant protections during the pandemic. The Judicia...

Did coronavirus widen Southern California’s homeownership divide?

The coronavirus pandemic may have ballooned Southern California homeownership’s geographic divide to a level not seen in 16 or more years. New Census Bureau stats on who owns the home they live in shows ownership at a 12-year high in the Inland Empire while still running at a national low in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
