It's another edition of our irregularly scheduled look inside the blogs of our realtor friends. If you're a SoCal Realtor with a blog we should be reading, drop us a line.
1) Feng Shui Your Books: Westside realtor Coco Clayman Cook ponders the usefulness of making your bookshelves feng shui compatible. "Feng Shui principles encourage you to have no open shelves with paper on them. This means installing doors on existing book shelves; or if you are like me and enjoy the look and feel of a library, installing “lawyer bookshelves”. These have glass doors that allow you to see your books but keep them relatively dust free and prevent negative energy." [LACondoLifestyles]
2) Palmdale Is Not A Cesspool: Realtor Judy Graff visits Palmdale with her husband and his just released cat book (Christmas Gift!) and discovers that tales of Palmdales demise have been greatly exaggerated. "The major shopping area had tons of traffic, busy franchises, and no board-ups. Lots and lots of people out and about, and none of them looked particularly troubled. In short, I saw a thriving community... Now, I'm not saying that area is not ground zero for foreclosures. I'm just saying. Perhaps I need to wait a year for the blight to set in?" [SFV Real Estate]
3) Point Dume Super Chop: The reality train slams into Malibu, reports the Malibu Real Estate Blog. "The home at 6815 Dume Drive was originally listed at $6,550,000 and last week saw a $1,555,000 reduction! It is now listed at $4,995,000." What you get: A Craftsman with beach rights, 5 bed and 5.5 baths, sitting on 2.75 acres. [Malibu Real Estate Blog]
