Selling Your Los Feliz Home? Create a 'Blank Canvas'

No, I don't mean remove all the furniture and paint everything white… I mean, remove all the distractions so your potential buyers can see themselves and their own possessions in your Los Feliz home and not be distracted by yours.

Take down the family photos and replace them with something neutral. Pack your trophies and collections. And if you've gone wild with paint color, do repaint to a neutral tone.

It doesn't have to be stark white, just a neutral gray or beige that could allow furniture of any color without a major clash. The turquoise and may have been perfect with your furniture and lifestyle but not everyone can imagine themselves in such a bright environment.declutter rooms and use neutral colors to sell your Los Feliz home

No doubt you’ve heard this a million times but I have to say it again,...

This Mid Century Los Feliz flip is definitely NOT a flop!

This Mid Century Los Feliz flip is definitely NOT a flop! Back in April of this year, the house at 4213 Cromwell Ave was a little fixer that was listed at only $699,000.  Thirteen days later it was in escrow for $775,000.  No doubt there were multiple offers from people trying to get their hands on this little diamond in the rough.  I’ve seen my share of flipped houses and some come out more re-muddled than remodeled.  That is certainly not the case with this Los Feliz gem. SimoDesign did a great job bringing the house back to life. This Los Feliz mid-century came on the market with its svelte new look in October with a list price of 1,175,000. The current price tag of $1,139,000 should certainly make this property more interesting and I will be surprised it stays on the market for long. This Mid Century Los Feliz flip is definitely NOT a flop!...
