los angeles rental properties: Looking for a Rental Property in Los Angeles, Try Santa Monica - 06/23/12 02:25 PM
You are relocating and looking for a rental property in Los Angeles.  Try Santa Monica.

Why live in Santa Monica?  Here are some reasons:
The Santa Monica-Malibu School District is excellent, and includes Roosevelt Elementary, Franklin Elementary, and Santa Monica High. The air is fresher and the days cooler near the ocean. Restaurants, shopping and entertainment abound:  including Third Street Promenade, Main Street, Santa Monica Pier and Montana Avenue. Santa Monica is 10 miles from the Los Angeles International Airport and a fairly easy drive avoiding the freeway.

los angeles rental properties: Looking for a Rental Property in Los Angeles, Try Westwood - 06/22/12 10:36 AM

los angeles rental properties: Renting a Home in Los Angeles, The Realtor's Role Explained - 06/12/12 09:02 AM
I think there is a misconception of how Los Angeles Realtors® handle rentals, so clarification is in order.
Much as we may love what we do as Realtors® we are paid totally on commission.  Until a deal is consummated we can run around for weeks, months, or even years with all the expenses and no income.  Now don’t get me wrong, in Los Angeles one deal, and by deal I mean sale, can be worth all the hard work involved in making that deal happen.  And it is all part of the business.
Who pays a buyers’ agent’s commission? The listing brokerage who has an … (14 comments)

los angeles rental properties: Renting a Home in Los Angeles? You Will Need a Credit Report - 06/07/12 05:12 PM
If you are  thinking of renting a home in Los Angeles, you are going to need to provide a credit report.
You can pay a fee for the landlord or his or her agent to run the report for you, but it is much easier for you to run one yourself.
Once a year you can get a free credit report  Two of the ones that I like my clients to use are freecreditreport.com and creditscore.com/creditreport.com (one and the same company), which charge $12.95.
You will run a full report, not just get the scores, on all three bureaus which you will be able to email.  Also, the … (25 comments)

los angeles rental properties: Renting a Home in Los Angeles? Let's Check Out The Market - 05/22/12 09:38 AM
It is getting tougher and tougher to find a good rental property on the Westside of Los Angeles. The minute something great comes on the market it is gone, at least in a certain price range, and 3 bedroom properties are rare.

The areas I seem to get the most inquiries on are:  Westwood (including the Wilshire Corridor), West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
So let’s see what the last month’s activity shows in those areas:
Westwood
 Out of the 321 listings above only 121 are 3-bedroom units, and of those only 38 are condos.
