The Culver City Market statistics below are taken from the MLS CLAW and are for single family homes only.  They do not include condos, income property or private sales. April was a mixed month for Culver City home sales.   The number of homes sold was up significantly but homes going into contract was down, strange considering that the federal home-buyers tax credit was ending at the end of the month.  The median price was down as was the sales price received against the listed price. Days on the market was up and number of homes for sale down.  The months supply of inventory remained the same. Search Culver City homes for sale

After a trip to Paris last year, I marveled at how the City has embraced its Velib bike system. Introduced in July 2007, it is a short-term bike rental program. Designed and created by outdoor advertising giant JCDecaux, the program includes 20,600 rental bikes at 1,451 stations throughout the city, providing an inexpensive, convenient way for people to use bikes for short trips. I don't know if this program is coming to a city near you, but included in this program is an extensive segment of bike lanes. One could learn from the Parisians. In an effort to make the Los Angeles area more bicycle friendly, especially with the Expo line running through Culver City, the line will include a bike lane from Culver City to Downtown.  This master plan is still in its infancy. They are proposing a...

A couple of weeks ago I received a call from a repeat client who had a new listing on Wagner St. I commented on the fact that I myself live on Wagner St, but didn’t think it was the SAME Wagner St. I mean this is Los Angeles after all. There must be at least 4 or 5 different Wagner Streets within 10 miles of here. But this one turned out to be MY Wagner Street, right here in Culver City. As any professional Home Stager will tell you, we spend probably a quarter of our work week in the car, driving all over town from one listing to another, and back and forth to our storage facilities. So I was incredibly psyched to be able to Stage a  home right down the block. I even gave this client a really good deal on the price for the convenience factor. Budget was an issue for her, but for my ow...

Culver City, California, was the dream of Harry Culver who in 1913 envisaged a balanced city.  The city was incorporated in 1917.  The studios formed the economic base followed by industries such as Helms Bakery and Western Stove.  In the 1920s and 30s, during prohibition, the city was filled with nightclubs and bootleggers, followed by car dealerships during the War years of the 40s.                     Over the years Culver City,  has grown in size to 5 square miles, with its own school district, and in 2000 it had 40,000 residents. In the 1990s there was a rebirth of downtown with one of the highest concentrations of fine art galleries in Southern California.  This and the vairety of dining led the New York Times in 2007 to call it a "nascent Chelsea." Culver City has an Historic Pre...

  5 Homebuyer Mistakes 1. Not keeping your emotions in check   While a home purchase can have it's shares of up's and down's for all concerned, you will be in a better negotiating possition of you think of your purchase, as a future investment.

It's well worth every penny you might spend, and it will help you make a better decision and save money in the long run. 3.Not taking your Realtors advice   We have been trained to see "red flags" and we are a neutral third party. If we see things that look suspect, take it seriously. A home with major flaws can become a money pit. 4.Unrealistic expectations   No home is per...
