Finding Deals In Foreclosure Land

Finding Deals In Foreclosure Land

Foreclosure pricing has set the tone in the residential market. While we remain in Foreclosure Land, everyone wants a bargain.

Expolding Land Values

Expolding Land Values

n my past few newsletters I discussed the enormous potential for land. These days, older property is being purchased for the underlying land value. The major impetus is the evolution from single story development to multi-story. Use of air rights increase the value of land in areas that have never experienced mid rise development. The proposition is obvious in dense urban areas like Pasadena, Downtown Los Angeles, Anaheim or West LA; however, mixed use is expanding throughout the entire region.
