la-fi-case-shiller-20130528-gHousing remains hot. In today’s LA Times, Alejandro Lazo reports that a “tight housing supply and strong demand continued to fuel a robust market recovery in March, with the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller index of 20 U.S. cities recording a 10.9% year-over-year increase (see chart, left). That was the strongest increase since April 2006.”

Over at HousingWire, Christina Mlynski talked to David Blitzer of the S&P Dow Jones. His take is that “other housing market data reported in recent weeks confirm these strong trends… At the same time, the larger than usual share of multifamily housing, a large number of homes still in some stage of foreclosure and buying-to-rent by investors suggest that the housing recovery is not complete.”

The upshot? This surging market has yet to run its course – and might not for some time. For help staying ahead of things, contact Tracy Do Real Estate.

The Soleta zeroEnergy One

Soleta1

From Sammy Medina at Co.DESIGN comes this story about a recent innovation in sustainable home design: “The project, currently on display outside the American embassy in Bucharest, was developed by the Justin Capra Foundation for Invention and Sustainable Technologies (FITS). The goal was to design and build a zero-energy shed that could be used as a house, studio, or office in various climates. It also had to be affordable and versatile.”

Soleta2

“Nearly every sustainable feature imaginable was embedded in the house, including solar heat, rainwater collectors, in-floor heating, ‘natural’ and ‘forced’ ventilation systems, LED lighting, and high-efficient fixtures… Best, it’s easy to control: You can use your smartphone to calibrate the interior environment to your exact specifications.” (Images courtesy of Soleta, their website is here.)

If the zeroEnergy One house intrigues you, be sure to reach out to us at Tracy Do Real Estate. We can find a vacant lot suitable for any type of home, whether it’s designed from the ground up or from pre-existing plans. In many cases, the cost of building from scratch is comparable to the price of buying an existing home. To explore your options, contact us here.

Congratulations to Our Friend Eric Garcetti, Mayor of LA

IMG_2369

Both candidates were outstanding, but for us, supporting Eric Garcetti was the clear and natural choice. His strong stewardship of CD13 has made Silver Lake, Echo Park, Atwater Village and Glassell Park some of the very best places to call home — and we would know. Having represented many clients in these neighborhoods, through hundreds of transactions, we’ve seen firsthand the growth, livability and rising property values.

Tracy Do Real Estate is proud to have co-sponosored multiple fundraising events for Mr. Garcetti. It’s been fun getting to know him, and we are certain that his warmth, intelligence and boundless energy will serve LA well into the future.
