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) LBC Ripe With Good Deals: Things are looking up for homebuyers in the down housing market. Laurie Manny says: "Come to Long Beach to find a deal." "There are 29 two-bedroom condos for sale in Long Beach, UNDER $200,000. Many have been on the market for a long time, as is witnessed by the days on market (DOM)...; and are now price reduced into the very affordable range." [LBRE]
2) Bigger Power Poles Produce More Power: A friend of realtor Judy Graff reports Burbank is getting new power poles. But why? "[Burbank Water & Power] said the new poles are needed to meet the increased demand for power. And they're six inches higher than the old ones." [SFVRE]
3) Giant Axe Needed For Malibu Price Chop: The Malibu Real Estate Blog reports that a home at 6100 Via Escondido (pictured) has been chopped multiple times over the last year, resulting in a million dollars worth of chops. The home is now listed at $3.795 million. "It’s one of the best deals I’ve seen if you want a ~4000 sq. ft. private house with an easy walk to the beach. " [MREB]
