The Metro Café in Culver City (Los Angeles) CA  Our visit to the Metro Café the other night was a complete surprise. In a good way, or I wouldn't take time to chat about it.  You sort of hate to spread the good word about some places, because then they might become too popular and crowded. That's the risk, I suppose, with the Metro Café.  The Metro Café, as it's called (the red neon sign outside declares it the Metro Diner), is rather non-descript, located on the first floor of the Travel Lodge. Not the sort of place lots of people would gravitate towards for a good dining experience.  They'd be wrong.  Our daughter and her husband had been a number of times and raved about it, so it was time to check it out - I'm glad we did.  The Metro Café is small, holding less than 40 or so I'd say...

Bistro Laurent in Culver City, CA (Los Angeles) This guy greeted us at the door at Bistro Laurent where we went to brunch this morning. It was a very suitable beginning to this Halloween Day. HAPPY HALLOWEEN, by the way. Even though it's about over. Bistro Laurent is the second restaurant by the same owner, Cafe Laurent being a long-time favorite on Overland in LA. Seems we hardly ever leave LA without having brunch there. Their pastries are amazing, and brunch is always good, no matter what we order. Bistro Laurent, at 3936 Sepulveda, has only been open a couple of months, following a lenghty period of bureaucracy with Culver City around their licensing. But thankfully they are past that and starting to see their business growing. There was a minor goof in an order for one of our group...

  Staging Works - A Case Study 09-14-10Annie Pinsker-Brown | Stage to Sell, Los Angeles Home Stager e-mail me view my blog Office: (310) 384-1084   Last month we were asked to preview a beautiful but vacant modern loft in Playa Vista. The Realtor had recommended that the property be staged as soon as she got the listing, but the owner didn't want to spend the money - and he wanted to price it for what he paid for it, not what it was worth in today's market. So after 3 months of sitting on the market and $100,000 in price reductions, the seller finally agreed to stage it. One of the issues with showing this home empty was that the second bedroom was directly across from the dining room and had no door. Click here to see how we solved this staging dilemma and what happened next!

          6 REASONS TO BUY A HOME     1. YOU CAN GET A GOOD PRICE ON A HOME, IN A BETTER NEIGHBORHOOD THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE LOOKED A IN THE PAST . We're five years into the biggest housing bust in history. Home prices are down - about 30% from their peak, (according to Standard & Poor) Will prices fall further? Sure, they might but you'll never catch the bottom. It doesn't really matter if you get the home you want for a great price. 2. THERE ARE TAX ADVANTAGES You can deduct the mortgage interest from your income taxes. You can deduct your real estate taxes. 3. IT'S A FORCED SAVINGS PLAN If you can an apartment for $3,000 month instead of buying one for $3,400 a month, renting may make sense. But will you save that $400 for your future? Most people will not. 4. MORTGAGE RATES ARE DOWN Fo...

  10 Mistakes Home Sellers Make Setting the Price too High     Trust your agent when it comes to property pricing your home. An agent that works with buyers, as well as sellers will have a balanced idea of pricing, having been in "the trenches" so to speak, and knowing what buyers are willing to pay in any given market. Waiting for the Market to come back     No one knows when home prices will will return - and don't expect values to return to 2005-06 levels soon. But that doesn't mean you should wait until then to sell your home. In fact, waiting could cost you thousands of dollars in home value, in a down market. Also, listing in a traditionally slow time, will limit your buyer pool Skimping on Listing Photos     Nothing turns off buyers, and even buyer agents then one blurry picture!...
