Sprawl is Bad and Smart People Don’t Like It

lead_large

The Atlantic’s excellent CITYLAB website has a pair of articles that matter to us, as we support sensible urban growth that increases residential density and accessibility in the neighborhoods we serve.

We have seen firsthand that educated young people are moving to urban centers in droves, in fact many of our clients put “walkability” on the very top of their wish list. Which is great for many reasons, one of them being that sprawl is extremely expensive. Oh and it’s horrible for the environment too.

Off the Grid in Los Feliz

76488_02Our new listing in Los Feliz is sublime in so many ways. Those solar panels you see on the roof are actually quite discreet, you likely won’t even notice them when you’re standing in front of the house. And they provide an electric bill that looks a lot like a goose egg.

Off-the-grid is great, and views are even better. Stretching from the nearby Griffith Park Observatory to the lights of Century City, you’ll get vistas and sunsets from nearly every room in the house.

2400 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms. This is a lot of house! And there are lots of great photos plus many more details. Shown by appointment, contact Tracy Do.

A Family Legacy Comes to Eagle Rock

theerblogo

We’re so excited about our upcoming listing in Eagle Rock, The E.R.B.. These 45 new “small lot” homes by Warmington will be modern, high-tech, beautiful to look at, and built with what matters most: quality and expertise.

It was 1926 when William C. Warmington started crafting custom homes in Los Angeles, that’s 90 years ago. His specialty at that time was large custom houses, and his clients included Hollywood luminaries. It earned him the reputation as being a “builder to the stars.”

With his skills in high demand, William grew his building business with the people he trusted most — his family. A company was born that’s based right here in Southern California, under four generations of family leadership that continue even to this day. In fact the current CEO is William’s great-grandson, insuring that every Warmington home meets the standards of design and craftsmanship that have been synonymous with their name since 1926.

The E.R.B. homes in Eagle Rock. Built by people you can rely on today, tomorrow and for generations to come.

Located at 4320 Eagle Rock Blvd, 90041. Expected availability in Fall 2016. Join the interest list at www.theerb.com or contact sales at mark@tracydo.com / 323-842-4002.

Why 2016 is a Great Year to Buy a Home

TDRE_Collage_Final

Last month CNNMoney laid out four reasons why 2016 is a great year to buy a home, read it here. To summarize:

  1. Home prices will level off (in fact they already have in the Eastside markets we serve).
  2. Inventory will increase (also has already happened).
  3. Mortgage rates will likely rise (not dramatically, but every little increase costs you).
  4. Rents remain extremely expensive (and won’t get cheaper anytime soon).

All lights for buyers are flashing green, meaning it’s time to put the #1 Eastside realtor in your corner — Tracy Do.

Last year our team here at Tracy Do Real Estate closed over 150 successful transactions in Silver Lake, Echo Park, Eagle Rock, Highland Park and the surrounding neighborhoods. Our knowledge and experience means you have a proven, effective ally in your search, which is critical in a market that remains competitive for the most desirable and well-priced homes.

If you have questions about the process, or want to know how to get started, you can contact Tracy directly anytime at 323-842-4001 or tracy@tracydo.com.

Like the article on CNNMoney says, it’s a new year and a great time to buy. We’re ready to guide you to the home that you always wanted, and will love.
