Flipping King Better Shelter Does It Again

Known for quality craftsmanship, modern finishes, and flea market chic staging, flipping team Better Shelter appears to have done it again, this time in the coveted Franklin Hills area of Los Feliz. Usually their homes sell for at or above asking price in a matter of days, and this one appears to be no different. I visited the broker open house today, and the property was buzzing with activity. It just hit the MLS today, and according to the listing agent, they have already received two offers on the property! Amazing. After purchasing the "fixer" home in May of last year for just over $351,000, Better Shelter has completely redone the entire property with all new flooring, kitchen, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and a new two car garage. In short it is a brand new house at a good price. On an over 7,000 sq. ft lot, the developer has definitely added a ton of value to the home, and some buyer will be getting a beautifully redone property in a fine neighborhood. They are accepting offers until Sunday, so there is still time, but be prepared to go over asking price I am guessing. It just may be worth it.

Kudos on another fine project guys.

Redone Los Feliz Trophy Property

I had the privilege of seeing this stunning property yesterday during the broker open house tour, and was definitely impressed. Even more so, when you compare what the property looked like when the current owner purchased it (there is a link to it after the break). Lying on a cul-de-sac street north of Los Feliz Blvd is this restored and expanded 1922 jewel with impressive size, finishes, and outdoor space. It has clearly been very well redone with no expenses spared. It uses the same smoked white oak flooring recently found in this previously posted eastside property as it's base, has a great flow, and large master bedroom with sitting area. The floor plan really works well on many levels and leads out to a great entertainer's backyard. The listing describes the yard by saying, "A massive resurfaced/redesigned heated pool contains a newly-constructed spa. A rolling lawn, multiple lounge areas—even changing rooms—complete the backyard's offerings." This will appeal to the stylish modern family without question I would think. I know I personally really liked it.

If you compare the above pictures with what the property looked like when the current owner purchased it, the transformation is almost unbelievable. The owner did a fantastic job. This is a true trophy property in a prime location just walking distance to all of Los Feliz great restaurants and shops on Vermont & Hillhurst and even close to Griffith Park. If you like the mix of vintage design and modern elements, this one is perfect.

Four Nice Listings on the Eastside under $600K

I was perusing the MLS to see what is out there for my various buyer client's today, and came across these listings. In Silver Lake and Los Feliz there are currently four nice looking homes available under $600,000. Any of these, depending on one's taste, would work well for someone who would prefer to own a house with a yard as opposed to a condo. They are all in nice locations with close proximity to many goods and services. If you are currently looking or have considered looking, see below for what you could get for your money in the current real estate market.

Upgraded Traditional w/ A Modern Twist; Los Feliz

3801 Aloha St, Los Feliz

769,000 3 Bed 2 Bath 1,380Sq. Ft 5,000 Sq. Ft Lot

Lying in a good Los Feliz neighborhood, just blocks to all the restaurants and shopping on Vermont, is this updated 1940's traditional home. I am a finish guy myself, so put a lot of stock in nice high end finishes, as I think they add so much to a property. This one has exactly that, with a high end kitchen with Viking appliances and bathrooms with Duravit fixturing. The living room is nice as well, as it has a great open floor plan and is flooded with natural light due to a ton of large windows surrounding the property.
