Yep...we're sellin'! We're looking for a "real" house somewhere on the westside. (gads it's pricey here in LA!)

www.10396almayo3.com

for a comparison...check out our neighboring unit's website. www.10396almayo1.com

I'd say we've got the better place, the better price, and certainly the better agent - they did a heck of a nice job on the site and photos!

Thanks!

We've been watching "House Hunters" on HGTV. It depressing to see how much cheaper real estate is all over the country.

Yeah, prices in LA are still sick, even compared to the rest of the country.

There has been an interesting series on NPR this week about how the housing market is affecting suburbs. The gist of the question is, will rising gas prices and a bad economy force Americans to give up their ~70 mile commutes? Walkability and sustainability seem to be getting a lot more press lately, which is encouraging.

Anyway, Craig, I hope you and Roger will have a fun and successful adventure finding a new home.

Yeah, Tom, it'd be nice to see a reversal of the flight to the suburbs that left our cities old and dying. I always enjoy cities that have made strides in revitalizing areas with things like art-friendly First Fridays.

Say I as I prepare to commute 8 miles to my McMansion suburban subdivision.

An 8 mile commute in LA would still be in the heart of the city. \:\)

We're looking to stay "inside" LA as well. Partly because we like it, and also for that very reason. I believe a lot of people who've been commuting waaaay out into the burbs are going to be looking to move closer to the city again. Though prices are dropping somewhat, inside the city has been FAR more stable than outside (here in LA at least)

Craig, you were right, your web site blows your neighbor's away. Slick.

The prices in that area are not too much higher than my area of northern Virginia and probably comparable to those a couple of counties north of here. It's cool that you're close to those studios (and the golf course, as I saw on Google maps)

Google also told me that I could be there in 39 hours if I drive the 2632 miles to get there. Hmph - they've not met my lead foot.

Anyway, I like the paint schemes. It looks like a lovely home. Ditto to Tom's good luck wishes!

Our place is about as cheap as you can get into the westside for - especially so close to Century City/Westwood. If we wanted a house in this neighborhood it's about $850,000 for complete tear down/refurb place. \:\(

Thanks for the well wishes!

Curse you and all the other people who aren't upside-down on their homes!
