Checking in on a Glassell Park DIY Remodel

Last February my amazing, creative, and very ambitious friends and clients purchased a cute little Mid-Century home on the border of Eagle Rock & Glassell Park that had been the victim of a cheap (lets just say shitty) flip.
They’ve been working tirelessly since on restoring/updating all of the finishes and decorating like champs (one half of this duo happens to be an interior designer by trade so that works out well!). Beyond the interior and exterior of the home itself they’ve spent a large portion of time landscaping the formerly un-useable sloped lot that was filled with weeds and trash into a gorgeous private fenced and tiered drought-tolerant patio complete with stadium seating and a gas fire pit. The non-interior designer half of this powerhouse is also a video editor and we love it when they keep us updated on their remodeling progress with fun videos. Here’s the latest:

Los Angeles Market Update: It’s a Scorcher!

How are Los Angeles real estate stats looking compared to last year? The Eastside is on fire, baby! Highland Park, Mt Washington, Montecito Heights, and Cypress Park are all showing an increase in sales volume of over 30% compared with 2014, with Silver Lake/Echo Park coming in close on the tail at 29%. Thinking of buying or selling in Hollywood? Volume is up in Hollywood and East Hollywood a whopping 176% but Mid-Wilshire is apparently where the party is at, up 322% from last year. This map covers the MLS primary areas, which don’t include Pasadena, Altadena, and Glendale so I pulled those stats for you myself: Pasadena (North of 210) volume is up 14%, Altadena is up 16%, and Glendale (South of 134) is up 5%.
