Real Estate Prop Guide for Election Day

Voting Matters! Why Exciting LA is YES on Prop 5 and NO on Prop 10…

With the midterm elections just around the corner, there’s a lot of controversy as to what’s at risk. But, the most beneficial thing we can do is educate ourselves on each proposition and make thoughtful decisions that are in our country’s best interest. And as it pertains to real estate, it boils down to two major initiatives. On November 6, we are voting yes on Prop 5 and no on Prop 10 to save both our homes and our future. Read up on our real estate prop guide below and be prepared come election day.

Prop 5, otherwise known as the Property Tax Fairness Initiative, promises to remove unfair moving penalties for seniors, the severely disabled and disaster victims while still ensuring they pay their fair share of property taxes.

Voting yes on Prop 5 is exceedingly important for older residents who are living on fixed incomes to downsize without worrying about enormous property tax increases. And, in that same vein, it would also allow residents whose homes have been damaged or destroyed to move on without facing a huge new tax hike.

By and large, Prop 5 will remove the “moving penalty” that presently hurts countless California residents. Seniors, the severely disabled and disaster victims should be able to purchase a new home without fearing the inability to pay heftier taxes. This is imperative not just for them, but for the entire real estate industry.

The second major concern we have with the November ballot is Prop 10, or the so-called Affordable Housing Act. First thing’s first, this initiative does anything but create affordable housing. If passed, the longstanding Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act (which places limits on municipal rent control ordinances) would be repealed. This would exacerbate the housing crisis and eventually allow local governments to impose severe rent control measures.

We need to vote no on Prop 10 so all housing units in California (including new construction and single-family homes) do not become subject to rent control. This will inevitably lead to less housing being built and more demand than supply. Which, of course, would increase rents — not decrease them.

If rents are kept artificially low, it becomes far less profitable to build new housing and improve old units — which is incredibly counterproductive. A shortage of housing is precisely how we got into this mess to begin with. And, above all, no one wants to see real estate values plummet.

Spooky LA Architecture

Spooky Hollywood:
Hollywood Horror Film Locations

Visit the Hollywood homes that served as a location in the original film along with many other Hollywood horror film locations!

Hollywood, land of sunshine and palm trees. So much glitz and glamour. But there’s a darkness hidden behind even the brightest facade. Did you know that many of your favorite horror film locations are in hidden in plain sight? I’m not talking studio locations, but houses right on the street you might pass every day unaware of their dark and haunted history. Let’s take a look at some of the spookiest horror film locations in Hollywood.

American Horror Story: Murder House                                                                  This historic masterpiece was Built in 1908 by architect Alfred F. Rosenheim as his own personal residence, the 14,000-square-foot estate has served as a filming location for dozens of movies and television shows, including The X-FilesBuffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Twilight Zone and is located at 1120 Westchester Place.

Halloween (1 of 2)
The original Halloween is one of the most popular horror films of all time, so it’s a thrill to turn off Sunset Blvd and find yourself in the middle of the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois. While the Myers house and many of the other the film’s locations were in South Pasadena, the culmination of the film takes place right on Orange Grove Ave in the heart of Hollywood.

Halloween (2 of 2)
The final act of Halloween was shot in two homes. Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) is babysitting at the Doyle house while the murders take place at the Wallace house across the street. The Doyle house is 1530 and the Wallace house is 1537 N. Orange Grove Ave. The south side of 1537 has been altered, with a garage replacing the carport, but the front porch, front door, and upstairs windows are still instantly recognizable.

Nightmare on Elm Street
It’s only a few blocks from Haddonfield to Springwood, Ohio’s Elm Street. Nancy Thompson’s home, haunted by Freddy Krueger, is at 1428 N Genesee, a half block south of Sunset. The house, built in 1919, sold for $2.1 million back in 2013. The Lantz house, where Glen (Johnny Depp) was memorably murdered, is located across the street at 1419 N Genesee.

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
Traveling south to Hancock Park, the Hudson mansion from 1962’s Whatever Happened to Baby Jane remains virtually unchanged more than 50 years later. The home is located right where it’s mentioned in the film at 172 S McCadden Place. Remarkably, the house across the street and the carport next door, both appearing often in the film, are still intact and recognizable as well.

The Ring
Traveling south a few blocks, you’ll find Katie Embry’s house from 2002’s The Ring, at 413 S McCadden Place. While much of the film takes place in the Pacific Northwest, Katie (Amber Tamblyn) is the first to die in the film, having watched the cursed tape 7 days prior. It is her death in this house that puts the plot into motion.

Family Plot
Alfred Hitchcock’s later films often used Bay Area locations, so it’s particularly exciting to find a location he used here in town. In his last film, 1976’s Family Plot, Blanche the “psychic”’s modest bungalow at 17 Castle Heights Road is actually 4254 Lexington Ave, at the corner of Lexington and Bates. In what is undoubtedly an intentional nod, the Bates Ave. sign can be clearly seen in the film.

The House on Haunted Hill
High above Los Feliz, the Ennis House looms over the neighborhood. Located at 2607 Glendower Ave., the Frank Lloyd Wright designed home was completed by his son, Lloyd Wright, in 1924. The home is the largest of Wright’s textile block designs based on ancient Mayan temples. It has been used many times as a film location. First and foremost, it provides the exterior for William Castle’s 1959 The House on Haunted Hill. William Castle purposefully wanted the location for Frederick Loren’s (Vincent Price) mansion not to be your typical haunted house, and the immense stone behemoth makes a powerful and imposing statement. The Ennis House was also Angel’s lair in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, as well as being prominently featured in Blade Runner, Day of the Locust, and many other film and TV shows. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

MythBusters – Monthly Q&A with Exciting LA!

Living in Hollywood has it perks, it’s the entertainment center of the world! Have you caught yourself glued to the couch in a reality TV marathon? You might start to believe everything you see on TV is how it works in the real world. What if I told you the average Real Estate deal is nothing like you see on TV!

We will be bringing you monthly Q&A’s, this month we will be featuring reality vs real life scenarios in the real estate world.

Here are some of the top Reality vs Real Life scenarios:

Myth #1: Buyers look at 3 homes and decide to purchase on of them.

Real Life: There can be buyers who fall in love with the first house they see and purchase, but according to the National Association of Realtors the average homebuyers tour 10 homes as a part of their search.

Myth #2: The houses the buyers are touring are still for sale.

Real Life: Everything is staged for TV. Many of the homes being shown are already sold and off the market.

Myth #3: The buyers haven’t made a purchase decision yet.

Real Life: Since there in no way to show the entire buying process in a 30 minute show, TV producers often choose buyers who are further along in the process and have already chosen a home to buy.

Myth #4: If you list your home for sale, it will ALWAYS sell at the open house.

Real Life: Of course, this would be great! Open houses are important to guarantee the most exposure to buyers in your area but are only a PIECE of the overall marketing of your home. Keep in mind that many homes are sold during regular listing appointments as well.

Myth #5: Homeowners decide to sell their homes after a 5-minute conversation.

Real Life: Similar to the buyers portrayed on the shows, many of the sellers have already spent hours deliberating the decision to list their homes and move on with their lives/goals.

The Bottom Line

Having an experienced professional on your side while navigating the real estate market is the best way to guarantee that you can make the home of your dreams a reality. We are happy to be here to bust the myth’s and be your #1 real estate company in Hollywood.
