Market Update: Atwater, 90039

Atwater is hot. I wrote an offer for a client last week and they were competing with 37 other offers! Sadly, they didn’t get it. But it illustrates the high demand for this walkable neighborhood near the LA River. Median sold price up 19% over a year ago.

Market Update: Mt. Washington – 90065

Mt. Washington is super hot right now. Median sold price is up 26% over 1 year ago. A lot of flippers are going after properties in this area, because you can still get some relatively cheap properties than need TLC.

View from my home office in Angelino Heights, looking at DTLA on winter evenings. I love watching the sunset reflect onto the skyscrapers. It’s like a light show for a few minutes every evening.
