ADU’s also known as Accessory Dwelling Units: The Hottest Craze in Los Angeles! POSTED ON JUN 21, 2019 BY ENDRE BARATH IN ADVICE TO HOMEOWNERS, ENDRE BARATH, NEIGHBORHOOD, RELOCATION TO LOS ANGELES, SELLING, WESTCHESTER HOMES | 
ADU’s  also known as Accessory Dwelling Units. They are indeed the hottest craze in Los Angeles. In my observation, there are a few key pitfalls that you should avoid, when it comes to building an ADU’s.
ADU’s are truly awesome:
   As a Los Angeles Realtor, I am all for adding ADU’s to your home.    Someone who lives in Westchester, CA. 90045,  I see the benefit of the additional space.    If you live … (45 comments)

los angeles real estate: Banc of California Stadium the newest open-air stadium since... - 06/09/19 11:17 PM
Banc of California Stadium is one of the newest open-air stadiums in Los Angeles. It was just opened on April 18,2018. Many people do not know this, but it was the first Open Air Stadium built since 1962. If you are wondering where is this Stadium? It is on the former Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena’s location. It is directly next to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and just south of the main campus of the University of California more affectionately known as USC.
Currently the Los Angeles FC subleases the site from the university which has the master lease for operating … (7 comments)

los angeles real estate: It's June and it is National Home Ownership Month lets look at the ... - 06/02/19 09:14 PM
Since June is Designated as National  Home Ownership Month, let’s look at the state of  the Homeownership  with the statistics, facts and reasons for the same.
As a background, some of you might not know, since the early ‘70’s there has been an obsession by pundits and statisticians to monitor and track Home Ownership Trends. As a Beverly Hills Realtor, who has been in the local greater Los Angeles Real Estate Market for over 22+ years, I always appreciate and enjoy these types of discussions. Partly because I can get a better understanding of what directions the Home Ownership Trends are heading … (34 comments)

los angeles real estate: “Next Stop Execution” The autobiography of Oleg Gordievsky a book ... - 06/01/19 06:34 PM
“Next Stop Execution” The autobiography of Oleg Gordievsky a book review by Endre Barath, Jr.
This book was published in 1995 and interestingly most historians have considered that the Cold War has ended around 1991. Then may I ask, why was there an attempt to poison this former KGB colonel in 2007? I recall hearing and reading about it in the news around 2008. The word was, that rogue elements of Russia attempted to poison Oleg Gordievsky with Thallium, but somehow, he managed to survive the attempt after being in a 34 hour-coma.
This event piqued my interest, hence I decided to find … (10 comments)

Observations on Memorial Day  Evening by a Beverly Hills Realtor Endre Barath, Jr.…
Every evening, I reflect as to what went on in the day and how and what I could have done better. Generally, looking back is important to me, it allows me to figure out, how I can improve my actions and plan out the next day as well as the rest of the  week.
 Today was an interesting day to say the least. Not only was it Memorial Day, but it was a day the Red Sox were on National TV and I was excited to watch them, not only … (40 comments)

los angeles real estate: Real Estate Poetry... just for fun lets look at the definitions.... - 05/19/19 08:16 PM
Real Estate Poetry: Just for fun, let’s look at Real Estate  Marketing Language and the real meaning behind them.
For many clients, this is a new language and with that said this becomes a learning experience. Best comparison is like picking up a book, but it is in a different language that we are not accustomed to. It is best compared to some  of technical manuals that the ordinary consumer can not understand. On the surface it is in English, it is not a foreign language, but the meanings are still different from what we are used to.
So, let me start demystifying … (11 comments)

los angeles real estate: Why is it important to treat others the way you want to be treated?... - 05/12/19 11:43 PM
Why is it important to treat others the way you want to be treated? My take is that, the results tend to have a more favorable outcome.
If the ride is bumpy or smooth, the finish often can make or break a continued long-term relationship. In my experience as a Beverly Hills Realtor, if we ended with a smooth finish the clients remained  long-term clients. On the other hand, if the ending was not smooth, we did not get referrals, nor accolades, even if it was not our fault.

As most of you noticed, the economy is booming, the stock market is at an all time high in the United States. The unemployment numbers are lower than in the 1960's so what opportunities are there for people who do not have a Job??
Well I was driving from one of my Escrows and I saw this sign in South West Los Angeles.... just  in case you did not know it, in California it is Legal to posses and smoke Pot... well with that said...
Clearly this legalized  business  has even created new ancillary job opportunities... I had not even considered or even anticipated … (20 comments)

los angeles real estate: Bird of Paradise: the plant - 03/30/19 11:54 PM
I have always loved "bird of paradise" the plant. It is such an exotic flower that I had a love affair with it. Mostly grows in warmer climates and that probably caused the attraction. So when we came to California I was a bit surprised that often you could see them growing as almost like a weed along the highways and roads.
Much to my excitement when we bought our home there were two Bird of Paradise bushes in the back yard. Well with that said now Diane keeps telling the Gardner's to make sure they trim  the bushes, otherwise they would be out of … (19 comments)

los angeles real estate: Lunch at Poppy + Rose on Wall St, DTLA... - 03/04/19 11:31 PM
Diane and I had lunch today at a Restaurant by the name of Poppy + Rose. This restaurant is located on Wall St. Keep in mind when you think of Wall St.do not  think of New York City. Think of a Restaurant in the middle of the Flower District of Los Angeles. Two streets over from San Pedro St a  gritty part of Los Angeles adjacent the Little Tokyo of Los Angeles.
The place was packed for Lunch, we got there just in time before the rush. You might ask what were we doing there? Turns out this Restaurant has been on … (39 comments)

March Active Rain Challenge - Book Smart because Books and art often go hand-in-hand. I went to a private Art Show and took this picture.  Just so that you know, one of my clients was holding  the Invitation only Art Show at the Chateau Marmont  on the Sunset Strip. This is the place where the who’s who of Hollywood love to hide for a night or two but love to be seen having breakfast or lunch in the various garden eateries, but I am digressing. 
 
My goal and intent were to write more about the Exhibit, which caused a great deal of interest, but an Active … (150 comments)

There are some things that are sacred in my book, what are sacred in your book?
As well as what are  your thoughts about this subject?
Just to give you a background this post was inspired by a dinner conversation I had tonight. I understand about the fact that Catholic Priests keep secrets what they have learned in confession and go to the grave with it, without disclosing any of it. I know Attorneys take clients and cases and  they never disclose the discussions they had with their clients as well as the material facts that they are aware of,  due to attorney … (38 comments)

Speechless Sunday: Oscar Party Finger food.... Well as most of you know Hollywood's biggest night was tonight. Ironically they did not have a host. In spite of that the show went on for about 3:15 minutes. Yes I had to watch so I can talk about it to most of my local clients. Gratefully little political diatribe took place for a change....
Diane wanted finger food so with that said check out this plate and can you name all the ingredients? If yes feel free to guess and mention them in the comments:)))

The Westchester CA 90045 Market Trends Report is published... I have to smile often people put into Google Westchester and fail to add California and next thing you know you  are getting the New York Westchester Market Trend Reports. Clearly the climate and the geography is different. Ironically so are the price points. So with that said let's look at the Westchester CA 90045 market trends which are part of the Los Angeles Real Estate Market Trends.
 

As you can see inventory has been a problem. Westchester is a very quiet community provided you do not listen to the Airplanes landing or … (3 comments)

los angeles real estate: Snow Capped Mountains in the distance: a rare sight in Los Angeles... - 02/13/19 11:50 PM
Snow Capped Mountains in the distance: a rare sight in Los Angeles... The last time I remember seeing Snow Capped Mountains was about 22 years ago...
Diane and I  relocated from Boston MA to Los Angeles CA and when we arrived it was El Nino. Rains we have never seen before. The volume was so bad that I used to drive Diane to work to her office in Downtown Los Angeles. This was before it was called DTLA. This was during the time I was forced to re-take my  Real Estate Courses and license, because California did not have reciprocity with Massachusetts.
I remember naively … (41 comments)

This event is sponsored and presented by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles. There are anticipated over  one hundred  thousand individuals … (18 comments)

los angeles real estate: Super Bowl XXXVI & Super Bowl LIII &Real Estate something in... - 02/02/19 10:19 PM
Super Bowl XXXVI and Super Bowl LIII and Real Estate there is something in common here....There are so many subjects to write about, some are Real Estate related others are not. This is about Real Estate, believe it or not. I am just a bit verbose and digress. If you get to the end of my post, you will agree.
Some posts are relevant,  some are timely, and others are not.
Now, with that said, did you know that Super Bowl LIII ( this one in 2019 for those who are not familiar with roman numerals  happens to be  # 53)  and interestingly, … (66 comments)
