los angeles rental properties: Buying a Los Angeles Home? Find a Good Rental While You Wait. - 09/29/12 10:55 AM
It’s getting tougher and tougher out there to find a home to buy in Los Angeles with the low inventory, so if your are moving to Los Angeles or downsizing your home, then a rental is going to be the way to go. Not that rentals are easy to find. The minute the good ones come on the market they are gone. But if you know what you want and move quickly then you stand a good chance of finding the right property. This will give you a good amount of time for inventory to build and for you to find a Los Angeles home to (25 comments)

Why live in Santa Monica? Here are some reasons: The Santa Monica-Malibu School District is excellent, and includes Roosevelt Elementary, Franklin Elementary, and Santa Monica High.

los angeles rental properties: Looking for a Rental Property in Los Angeles, Try Westwood - 06/22/12 10:36 AM
Looking for a rental property in Los Angeles? There are many reasons you may be thinking of renting rather than buying at this time: You are downsizing your home and haven’t decided where you want to live yet. You are moving to Los Angeles and the same as above, haven’t decided where you want to live. Unfortunately, you lost your home to a foreclosure or short sale.

los angeles rental properties: Renting a Home in Los Angeles, The Realtor's Role Explained - 06/12/12 09:02 AM
I think there is a misconception of how Los Angeles Realtors® handle rentals, so clarification is in order. Much as we may love what we do as Realtors® we are paid totally on commission. Until a deal is consummated we can run around for weeks, months, or even years with all the expenses and no income. Now don’t get me wrong, in Los Angeles one deal, and by deal I mean sale, can be worth all the hard work involved in making that deal happen. And it is all part of the business. Who pays a buyers’ agent’s commission? The listing brokerage who has an (14 comments)
los angeles rental properties: Renting a Home in Los Angeles? You Will Need a Credit Report - 06/07/12 05:12 PM
If you are thinking of renting a home in Los Angeles, you are going to need to provide a credit report. You can pay a fee for the landlord or his or her agent to run the report for you, but it is much easier for you to run one yourself. Once a year you can get a free credit report Two of the ones that I like my clients to use are freecreditreport.com and creditscore.com/creditreport.com (one and the same company), which charge $12.95. You will run a full report, not just get the scores, on all three bureaus which you will be able to email. Also, the (25 comments)
