6573 Elder Street is a wonderfully spacious 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, home, built in 1973, with many tasteful upgrades; including new laminate flooring and beautiful tile work in all the baths.

Upstairs master suite features cathedral ceiling, two separate, ample closets and a peek-a-boo view.

There is a large, two car garage and plenty of driveway space to handle additional cars and an RV.

The community of Garvanza  is recognized as one the original sites of the Arts and Crafts movement in Los Angeles.

With its gentle, open country ambiance, Elder Street recalls the open hillsides of wild, sweet, garbanzo beans that gave the community its name.

Thanks to the hard work of The Highland Park Heritage Trust, Garvanza was officially designated as a neighborhood by the City of Los Angeles in 1997, and the entire area was designated as a Historical Preservation Overlay Zone in April 2007.

The Northeast L A Real Estate market is getting hot! Some homes are getting multiple bids, and going over asking price.

The Northeast Los Angeles Real Estate market is getting hot! Some homes are getting multiple bids, and selling over asking price.  

How to become one of those properties? 

The home should be super-clean, in good repair, and  priced a just bit below comparable homes. 

If the home is a fixer-upper, price it with a deep enough discount to attract investor attention.

Los Angeles Veteran Home Buyers Benefit From Lower Funding Fees (as of November 18, 2011)

N.B:  On the day before I published this, HR 674 passed, reverting the funding fee amounts to the “old” levels.  It was updated in VA Circular 26-11-19, published November 22, 2011.  The “new” lower funding fee schedule was in effect for three days, from Nov 18-21.  Sorry for the confusion.

The Veterans Administration announced that is will be charging lower funding fees, to VA-eligible homebuyers, when issuing the VA mortgage guaranty.  Previously, Los Angeles veterans, looking to purchase their first home with no-money down, paid a 2.15% funding fee.  Last week, that funding fee was reduced to 1.40% of the loan amount. 

Veterans, who were using the VA mortgage for the second (or third, fourth, etc) time, used to pay a 3.30% funding fee for a VA zero-down home loan.  That fee has been reduced to 2.80%.

Los Angeles veterans, who choose to use a down payment when purchasing a home, can still use their VA home loan.  The new funding fee, for a 5% down payment, is now .75%.  The new funding fee, for a 10% down payment, is now .50%

A full chart of the new VA funding fee schedule is available on Brian Brady's Mortgage Rates Report.  Please direct any and all questions via telephone to (858)-777-9751


2011 FHA and VA Loan Limits for Los Angeles County

Los Angeles County 2011 VA loan limits dropped to $700,000, as did Orange county,  The 2011 VA loan limits for Ventura County was set at $562.500.  Riverside and San Bernandino counties' limits remain at $417,000. These loan limits are the maximum base mortgage amount for a zero-down VA home loan.

2011 FHA loan limits for Los Anegeles County are $729.750 as is Orange County.  Riverside and San Bernandino Counties have an 2011 FHA loan limit of $500,000.

View the full list of 2011 VA loan limits for California counties.

VA mortgages allow veterans to borrow above the county loan limit if the buyer has a down payment.  You can use this VA mortgage down payment requirement formula to calculate the amount needed.  Los Angeles County homebuyers have found VA loans to be a particularly good option for loan amounts up to $1,000,000, because of the low down payment requirement, in 2009 and 2010.

VA loans do not require private mortgage insurance (PMI) because they are insured by the VA, which collects a funding fee from the buyer.  This makes most VA loans a less expensive option than FHA or conventional loans, where PMI is required.
