Interest Rates are Just Insanely Low

We didn’t have a chance to post the recent drop in interest rates before they dropped again. People, seriously. Buy a house. This is the deal of a lifetime and will save you thousands of dollars over time.

NELA Union is a Comparative Bargain Pt. 2

LATlogoTim Logan of the LA Times reports that “sales of newly built homes in the U.S. surged in August to their highest level in six years” which translates to “another indication of a housing market that is starting to stabilize.”

And meanwhile…

This just opened in the Arts District of Downtown LA.

It’s a perfectly nice 438-unit building, and we have nothing against it. However the rents, according to the LA Times’ Andrew Khouri, “range from $1,680 a month to more than $4,000.”

Bust out your calculator and do some simple math. For roughly $500,000, you can buy a brand new, state-of-the-art home at NELA Union that has 3 levels, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 1180 sq. ft. of living space — plus an attached two-car garage. It even has a private ground-level patio. Best of all, it’s yours. The hard-earned money you pay each month goes toward your bottom line, not someone else’s.

Plan1-07Plan 1 Home at NELA Union: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, approx. 1180 sq. ft.

Seriously, do the math. 10% down, 20%, FHA borrowers, all are welcome at NELA Union which is by far the best value among new Eastside developments. People are already living here and more will be unpacking this very weekend, getting settled in their own homes, centrally located in one of LA’s hottest neighborhoods, Glassell Park.

We’d love to show you around, and can do so daily from 10am to 5pm. If you have questions, please email to info@nelaunion.com or call 626-204-7109.

Two in Green

We’re pleased to announce two new listings for this week at Tracy Do Real Estate. The homes are similar in that both are early 20th Century Craftsman style, painted green (not the same shade of green) with white trim. They’re even priced the same. Mostly what these properties have in common is that they’re exceptional, presenting a great opportunity for buyers in two of the Eastside’s best neighborhoods. Both will be open to the public this coming Sunday, Sept. 28th from 1 to 4pm.
