Real Estate Link Love: November 2017

Just listed on the MLS — I designed the garden/patio for this cute Echo Park 2 bedroom/2 bath house on a corner lot, three years ago. It’s a short walk to Mohawk Bend, Bar Bandini, Elf, Crossfit, yoga and all the bars/restaurants on Sunset. If you want more info on the property let me know! It’s not my listing but I’m happy to show it.

Hey Kids!
I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately driving around LA and back and forth to the desert.  If you are interested in investment property you should really listen to Bigger Pockets: Real Estate. It will get you excited about building an investment portfolio. Plus, they have archive of 300+ episodes, so you are sure to find something on pretty much any topic you are interested in right now.

Mortgage rates ticking higher. No doubt will be above 4% throughout 2018, and may even touch 5%.
