beverly hills berkshire hathaway realtor endre barath: Observations by a Beverly Hills Realtor: Endre Barath, Jr. - 02/09/24 08:44 PM
The short month of February is already approaching double digits and I thought I should send out my monthly observations.
 
All of us in the greater Los Angeles area were focused on the Atmospheric River four-day rainstorm that deluged us earlier this week. I hope that all of you reading this market observation post were safe and that your homes survived without damage.  I have had inquiries if I knew of any roofers.  Obviously, those in the roofing business are likely very busy right now or will be once winter is officially behind us.  On a positive note, just like last … (30 comments)

beverly hills berkshire hathaway realtor endre barath: Observations by a Beverly Hills Realtor about the Real Estate Market... - 10/03/23 09:22 PM
Welcome Fall! As we open the month of October, it remains critical to navigate the current real estate activity.  Indeed, there have been enormous fluctuations over the past year in both the commercial and residential sectors of the real estate market.  
 
When we analyze real estate, the seasonal effect is always a factor to be considered. Customarily, there are fewer buyers and sellers from October to the end of the year due to various holidays and, in some areas of the country, weather.  And now we can add into that interest rates being at a 20+ year high at the mid- 7% range. … (5 comments)

beverly hills berkshire hathaway realtor endre barath: What are you making for dinner tonight? - 09/09/23 09:47 PM
What are you making for dinner tonight? Diane asked as we were driving home from Pasadena? Needless to say we were both hungry heading back from Vroman's Bookstore. So the conversation turned to would you like Peruvian Scallops? She wondered if I had some fresh ones and broke the news that they were frozen. The next question was would you like rice or pasta? Funny question why ask an Italian pasta or rice.
Well, you guessed it was pasta. I did not have pre-made sauce, so I had to scramble and only spent two hours reducing the sauce and adding leftover caramelized … (13 comments)

beverly hills berkshire hathaway realtor endre barath: How to keep business flowing in any Real Estate Market? - 08/18/23 09:40 PM
This question is on top of every real estate agent's mind, more so today than pre-Pandemic days....
How many real estate agents are there in Los Angeles? Depending on who you ask, the numbers vary. According to one source, there are 43,611; another states there are 25,813 (that's a fairly significant difference in my opinion).  You get the idea.  For the sake of argument, let’s just say that even if there are only 20,000 real estate agents in Los Angeles, that is still a lot of agents.  To put this in a different perspective, I researched the greater Los Angeles area - … (59 comments)

Hope you celebrated Bastille Day: we did... you may ask how did we celebrate it? Well, I opted for a better bottle of Bourdeaux Wine:)
In case you are not familiar with this day go and check out Wikipedia:  Bastille Day is the common name given in English-speaking countries to the National Day of France, which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In French, it is formally called the Fête nationale française
If I may compare it to our 4th of July:))
On a side note, every day is a good day to drink a good Bordeaux just my two cents.

beverly hills berkshire hathaway realtor endre barath:  “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius is my go-to book any time of the day. - 05/27/23 08:45 PM
 “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius is my go-to book any time of the day.
 
As some of you that know me well are aware, I keep the book “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius within hand reach on my desk.  I find inspiration, solace and peace whenever I read a few quotes or chapters from this book.  You may or may not know that this Roman Emperor had no intention of publishing his great philosophical diary; instead, Marcus Aurelius wrote this for himself.
 
It reminds me of being on our Active Rain platform.  We write for various reasons, sometimes to get future business and sometimes to get … (67 comments)

Real Estate Market Observations by a Beverly Hills Realtor, Endre Barath, Jr. 
Depending upon location and price point of your new home search in the Greater Los Angeles area, it could very well feel as if it is a seller’s market. This is strictly due to the simple economic principle of Supply and Demand - when there are more buyers than listings, that is what happens.  Let's not forget to add to the mix that when interest rates drop, more buyers can afford to buy based on their income.
 
Clearly buyers are closely watching, and when a well-priced home comes … (35 comments)

This week has been a bit challenging to say the least, as we celebrated International Women's Day to commemorate the achievements and advancements of women around the globe lot of other things have happened.  The Job Reports came out and it overshadowed the fact that March is also Women's History Month.
All that said, all eyes were on the jobs report on Friday morning.  It would have taken a shocking event such as a massive natural disaster, a major military escalation involving the U.S. to overshadow these numbers since they control Interest rates.
Well go figure there was something that would overshadow … (23 comments)

Throwback Thursdays: Yearning for some warmer temperatures... not sure if you have heard but the West Coast and Los Angeles is going through a cold spell never experienced before.
