Urban Living Lifestyle Alternatives


I often wonder what is in the minds of real estate developers.  How do they decide what to build and where?  Sure, they conduct surveys and build what they believe will be desirable enough to sell.   But do they hit the mark?  Are they really providing the living spaces that today's savvy buyers crave?  Sometimes yes...sometimes no. 


Long Beach Buyers who contact me almost always want an extra bedroom to convert into a home office; a guesthouse works great too.  I've seen dining rooms and garages in Long Beach turned into home offices when the needed space just wasn't available inside the home.   The thing is that a bedroom office is a work space contained within the homes living space and that isn't always ideal environment for all home based businesses, especially those with consumer traffic, or when you need 2 separate his and hers offices.  Where is the space going to come from?  Do you really want to buy a 4 bedroom house to accommodate the home offices inside the home? 


Our Long Beach Lofts are highly desirable live/work spaces for professionals who love the urban living environment they provide.  Quite a few buyers have either purchased or have considered purchasing one of the newer lofts in Downtown Long Beach or Alamitos Beach planning on carving a home office or work area into the expansive spaces.  It worked for some - mostly for those running virtual businesses from home. 


Downtown Long Beach Loft Living - It's a Lifestyle!


It's difficult to conduct business from within the home environment when children are present, even if you close the door.  While we love our children and most parents have a built in off switch, is it really professional to hear children running around being noisy in the background when you are on a business or sales call?  There is a real need for separate office space for many who chose to work from home. 


With so many people working from home now functional living and work space should be a factor when designing living environments in both urban and more rural areas.  We don't seem to have moved into this arena much; perhaps it is because we are already so built up.   When the majority of homes were built years ago on most of the available land we didn't have the same needs or concerns as we now do. 


When searching for a live/work home there are many things to consider. 


  • Does the business need a separate space for instance a storefront or professional office?
  • Would a particular neighborhood be more conducive to a successful business?
  • Do you need a visible location on a main avenue with signage?
  • Do you want your business housed in a free standing structure?
  • Do you need a parking lot? If so, how many spaces are required?
  • Are you willing to remodel the storefront or office to suit your personal needs? Is it financially responsible to remodel? Or does it need to be in ready condition - already close to perfect for your needs?
  • Do you live alone or do you have a family to consider?
  • Do you only need a functional living area or do you need an actual home?
  • Does your business have foot traffic and how will that affect your personal living space?
  • Is your business virtual? Will there be no foot traffic?
  • Is the home environment more important than the business?
  • Do you prefer a more residential neighborhood?
  • Would a bedroom office work for you?
  • Do you require a guesthouse to convert into your office? Does it need a separate entrance?
  • Would additional rental income help you pay the mortgage?


Many questions need to be addressed and answered when you are considering consolidating your business into your home living space; it's a big decision. 


The shortage of available live/work space in Long Beach has caused some business owners to purchase mixed use income properties providing both space for their business and a living environment.  Live in one, use the other for your business, if that works for you.  In some cases a 3rd or a 4th unit will provide additional rental income to help offset that mortgage. 


In Long Beach we have a plethora of Mixed Use Properties available in all sorts of configurations and condition. 


  • Storefronts or professional office space with apartments above.
  • Freestanding retail stores or professional offices with units out back and/or above.
  • Front houses on main avenues, zoned for retail or commercial use, with or without additional units.


Benefits of Working from Home


  • Less Stress
  • No distractions.
  • Privacy. Conversations not overheard. No wandering eyes.
  • Control schedule, can flex hours to fit lifestyle.
  • Secure environment, no petty theft.
  • No drive time. No more wasting 2 hours or more travelling to and from the job.
  • No Prep time. Wake up. Have coffee. Go to work.
  • Personal space. Decorate or arrange to personal taste. Make functional for yourself.
  • Virtual environment
  • Hire virtual employees as independent contractors. Decrease payroll expenses.
  • Complete control over your life.


Monetary benefits of Working from Home

 

Deep Reductions in expenses: 

  • Rent
  • Payroll
  • Insurance
  • Utilities
  • Gasoline
  • Eating out
  • Other business overhead expenses...
  • Business attire
    • Clothing
    • Shoes
    • Accessories
    • Dry cleaning
    • Shoemaker
    • Etc...

 

A Mixed Use property purchase requires a commercial loan.  The interest rates are usually a bit higher as are the qualification requirements.  Lenders usually want the buyer to have at least 50% down payment before agreeing to fund the loan.  Before deciding to search for a property zoned commercial or retail you should consult with a commercial lender. 


If you are thinking that buying a Mixed Use property might work for you it would be my pleasure to guide you through the process from beginning to end.  Contact me to discuss this very real possibility at (562) 212-5420.  If you own a Mixed Use or Residential Income Property and are thinking about selling and understand the value of top of the search engine exposure, ask me about my Unique Internet Marketing plan.

Sales of Long Beach Income properties (2 -4 units), are picking up as buyers realize what good buys they are right now.  Prices are up slightly in since January but are still low, days on market are down some.  Smart investors are investing in the Long Beach income property market and future planning for retirement income.  Some of these income property sales have provided instant return on investment (ROI), others will do so in short order. 


Bank owned investment properties have been entering the market here in Long Beach providing excellent opportunities for ownership. 


Gross Rent Multiplier's (GRM) are down and Cap Rates are up.  The days of a 14 + gross rent multiplier are gone.   We are beginning to see GRM's back in the healthy 10 and below range once again.  Smart investors are scooping these up bank owned income properties in Long Beach rather quickly, often with all cash offers or large down payments.  Its a very good time to be out shopping for residential income properties.  


Although Long Beach is part of Los Angeles County, we do not have rent control here.  This makes Long Beach an ideal place to own and operate investment properties. 


2 to 4 income property units may be purchased with a residential loan.  5+ units and mixed use properties will bring you into the commercial arena requiring a commercial loan.   Commercial loans are structured very differently than residential loans and the qualifying process is more rigorous.  A commercial loan will likely require about 50% down payment with a higher interest rate than pure residential.  Contact a commercial lender to find out what you will qualify for and how much down payment the lender will require prior to shopping, the down payment required on commercial loans is usually substantial.


Many buyers in contact us interested in purchasing residential investment properties in Long Beach.  Some are new to this market and don't understand how to purchase.  At this time banks require non-owner occupied units to place a minimum 20% down payment, sometimes higher.  Owner occupied units can be purchased with lesser down payment, ask your lender how much down payment you will require for your purchase.

 

Claiming to purchase owner occupied and not actually occupying is considered to be bank fraud which is a felony. Before considering an income property purchase you should first contact your lender regarding qualification. 


Long Beach has been experiencing a shortage of available homes and condos for sale; as a result buyers are turning to the residential income property market in an attempt to find a fit.  Often a duplex, triplex or a four-plex will provide a very nice front home which may work as a good fit for a 1st time home buyer.  A portion of the rental income generated by the units will be considered by the lender and will assist the buyer to qualify for a higher amount, making the purchase both possible and manageable.  If you are a 1st time buyer and think this may work for you call your lender, ask them how much loan you will qualify for with rental income from a duplex, triplex or a four-plex. 


Buyers are finding that Mixed Use Properties can be a great live/work solution.  We have few live/work properties in Long Beach, finding the right mixed use property in the right location can be a great resolution. 


Income properties are a great solution for parents searching for investment properties to house their college student children.  While the price may be a bit higher than a condo, the income is as well because there are more bedrooms to rent, more bathrooms and more common area than say a condo purchase would provide.

Downtown Long Beach Investment Property

 

Are you looking for a Downtown Long Beach Home and finding them just out of your financial reach?  Have you considered a duplex?  Yes they often cost a bit more than a single family home, but the rental income can make the difference between being able to afford a home or not.  There are actually a few very nice duplexes available at this time, for very reasonable prices.  

The lender will consider the rental income and increase the amount you are qualified for making it possible for you to purchase. 

If you think this idea might work for you, it would be my pleasure to assist you and explain how this is a real possibility for you.

Listed below are all available Downtown Long Beach Duplexes.  Some of them are in the Willmore Historic District, a few of them are actually very nice and the prices aren't too shabby either:

Property Tax Relief for Long Beach and Los Angeles County Homeowners?

Not Without An Appraisal

 

 

The Los Angeles County assessor's office on Monday announced completion of their automatic "decline-in-value" reassessments that reviewed 473,000 homes purchased between July 1, 2003 and June 30, 2008. This review resulted in 330,000 county residences qualifying for automatic reductions in their October 2009 tax bill.


Homeowners with qualifying properties will be notified of the results in writing by June 30. Those who were not reviewed can file for free with the Assessor's Office until December 31.


According to the assessor, the average reduction in assessed values for single-family residences was $126,000, for an average tax savings of $1,400 per year. Condos saw averaged reductions of $96,000, for savings of about $1,100 per year.


Just how generous the savings will be on an individual basis is hard to say. Presumably, homeowners that purchased between 2005 - 2007 will see the bulk of the savings, while others may not see as large a reduction. But with budgets on the brink throughout the State, should anyone should expect assessor largesse?


Not without your own appraisal.


Two reasons:


  1. The assessor's automatic valuation used market data in 2008-pre January 1 2009 cut-off.
  2. Homeowners applying for review can submit their own appraisal with sales data through March 31, 2009.  

If you've been watching the news, you know prices continued sliding into this year. So homeowners accepting their auto-assessment might not be maximizing the savings they otherwise could see.


In two recent tax-reduction cases, the homeowners handed me their reduced-assessment notices sent to them by the assessor. Both assessments were --- get this --- high by about $150,000. (Which explains why they called me to begin with.) If either case reflects at all the data the assessor's using to calculate 2009 taxes, you want to get a second opinion.


To know if you property was reviewed, click here. If your property was not reviewed, or you didn't qualify even though you bought your home between June 30, 2003 and July 1, 2008, download a copy of the Decline-in-Value Reassessment Application then call for us a consultation-it's free.


PS. You want to get your options out of the way quickly, the deadline to file an appeal with the Assessment Appeals Board is November 30.
