buying: Marina Del Rey Condominium Market Report for August - 09/02/09 01:21 PM

buying: Fantastic View Lots above the Sunset Strip - 06/17/09 09:37 AM
I have just listed another View Lot above the Sunset Strip.
 Before I go into the details of my new listing. I want to share with you, that a week ago I closed on one Lot three parcells away from this one. The Land Sales have been slowed due to the downturn of the RE Market and the Economy. I am starting to see life in both. Particularly when Land starts to sell, it  is a sign of confidence returning to the market. Just as an FYI two months ago four parcells sold about five hundred yards from these lots.

The other day I was at the Airport that is LAX in Los Angeles, waiting for one of my clients flying in to buy property in Malibu. The plane was late and I saw this Magazine called LAX. Interestingly there was an article about Gladstone's of Malibu. They opened a Restaurant in LAX.
