I love this job. Sometimes I get to sell houses that I really like and would buy myself.

It makes it so much fun to move properties that you enjoy. This new listing I have in myNELA home turf is one such property. It is a house in my neighborhood that is rehabbed well and is a bargain to boot. This is a great deal for a first time buyer. Freshly remodeled bungalow in the hills of Highland Park done right: Two Bedrooms, Two bathrooms. Big deck with amazing south facing views. Huge back yard that is both terraced and flat. Low water eco-minded landscaping, indoor laundry, Garage you can actually park a car in. On a quiet street with mostly rehabbed houses in super trendy Highland Park (HLP),this bungalow is well priced at $319,ooo. It is a compact house, but it is intelligently designed and super efficient. If Ikea can do a 400 square foot house, this one has room to spare. The property is centrally located: Five minutes from Pasadena, 10 minutes from Downtown LA and a 15 minute walk to the Gold Line. If you don't know about what's going on up in Highland Park yet, call me and I'll show you around.
When you stop to do the math on this house, it becomes apparent that buying it is actually cheap than renting it. With a 20% down payment the monthly payment on this house including everything (property tax, insurance) is $1505. You can't rent a 2 bedroom house in the hills of Highland Park for that, and if you find a place it probably wont be as sexy as this one. Even with a minimal FHA down payment of 3.5% (only $10400) the monthly payments are just a bit over $1900. That's not a lot to pay own your own house in an up and coming area like HLP. Smart money.
