For many first or second time homebuyers who now have the income to support a substantial monthly payment, but lack the savings to provide the 20% down payment required of Jumbo mortgages, there are 10% down programs to accommodate these scenarios. Bear in mind, these programs often come at a slightly higher interest rate and stricter guidelines on Debt to Income ratio’s and the use of gift funds. However, this is a still a very viable option for many borrowers.

In today’s competitive home buying market, we see many cash offers being made. Through Private Mortgage Banking you can take advantage of a Cash Recoup Loans that allow you to purchase a home in cash, then obtain a mortgage within 90 days of the purchase. This allows you to leverage the benefits of making a cash offer as well as getting all the tax benefits of a mortgage by obtaining financing.

For home buyers looking to purchase a fixer-upper, look into a mortgage with built-in renovation financing. There are also construction loans that can be obtained for ground up construction of a primary or secondary home.

5112 Melrose is a newly constructed community of single family homes in the Larchmont/Hollywood area by Lennar Homes. There are still some homes available for purchase! These homes are part of Los Angeles' small lot subdivision ordinance which allows a bunch of single family homes on one lot. On the corner of Melrose and Gramercy, these detached homes with 2-car garage have spectacular views of downtown Los Angeles, the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Observatory, and the Hollywood Hills from their private rooftop decks.
Prices start in the $700,000's, and go up to the low $800,000s. They have two models:
Right in the heart of Beverly Hills, surrounded by historical estates and architectural compounds, sits "The Spadena House", also known as "The Witch's House". The storybook style house is located at 516 N Walden Dr on the corner of Walden and Carmelita in the Beverly Hills Flats. It is a fun tourist destination and was designated a historic landmark of Beverly Hills in February 2013.
The home is easily recognizable. The roof is pointed like a witch's hat and is lopsided with brown shingles. The tiny windows have wooden shutters are hung at odd angles. The front yard even has a wooden bridge crossing a moat and the garden is intentionally overgrown and distressed looking. There are signs on the fence that say "No Trespassing" and "Keep out".
The 3500 square feet house was originally designed and built in 1921 by Harry Oliver, a Hollywood art director. It was located in Culver City and served as the offices and dressing rooms for Irvin Willat's film studio. In 1934, the home was moved to its current location in Beverly Hills.
The Witch's House has since undergone remodeling many times but still greatly resembles the original home that was built by Harry Oliver. The house can be seen in the 1995 movie "Clueless." In the movie, Alicia Silverstone walks past the house after failing her driving test. It is also featured in the 1965 movie "The Loved One" as the home of Sir John Gielgud's character, and also in the 1957 horror film "The Undead".
The Century Towers, designed by one of the 20th century's most important architects I.M. Pei in 1964, was the first residential project in Century City. The gated complex is located at 2220 and 2222 Avenue of the Stars on over several acres of land, making it one of the largest luxury residential condo properties in Los Angeles. The Century Towers truly stand out from other high rise communities through West Los Angeles, such as those on the Wilshire Corridor, because of its spacious grounds.
These amazing twin towers offer floor to ceiling windows with units that overlook the greens of the Hillcrest Country Club, the Hollywood Hills, the Century City skyline, and beyond to the Pacific Ocean on a clear day. Amenities include doorman/front gates, 24 hour concierge/front desk, valet parking, ample guest parking, swimming pool, 2 tennis courts, gym, sauna, putting green, and more!
The Towers were originally built as luxury apartments in 1964, but were later converted to condominiums in 1973 by S. Jon Kreedman & Company. I.M. Pei is best known for his "Pyramide du Louvre" in Paris. He brought his signature style to the mid-century Century Towers.
The two buildings are identical, there are 28 floors in each building (no 13th floor) and 331 units total. 1 bedroom units range from 820 to 1,072 sq ft, 2 bedroom units range from 1,301 to 1,369 sq ft, 3 bedroom units range from 1,624 to 2,170 sq ft, and maids quarters/offices are about 236-265 sq ft. Approximately 10% of the units have been combined to make larger units and the units have been remodeled to each owner's taste. Homeowner's dues are approximately $0.82 per square foot per month. The building is pet friendly and allows dogs and cats up to 25 lbs, as well as fish and birds.
The Century Towers are just steps away from the Century City Westfield Mall as well as Century City's business and retail district. The community is centrally located in Los Angeles, about 5 minutes to Beverly Hills, 10-15 minutes to the beach, and 15-20 minutes to downtown, with easy access to the 10 freeway.
Notable celebrities that have lived in the building include Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Burt Lancaster, David Janssen, Jack Benny, Sebastian Siegel, Diana Ross, Karen Carpenter, Josh Flagg, Ruth Handler (founder of Mattel), Edith Flagg and Berry Gordy.
There are currently 5 units on the market in the Century Towers for sale, and 2 units in the community for lease.
