Recently, that was whittled to one, and on Thursday, March 22, it will be presented to the Metro Board of Directors. The City Council approved the route, which basically extends from Bunker Hill to South Park, on Jan. 31. Ironically, the Metro Board will not vote on the project. Instead, once it hears the presentation, streetcar proponents will be cleared to begin the environmental review process. “This is a major step toward realizing the streetcar,” said 14th District City Councilman José Huizar, who launched the circulator proposal as part of his Bringing Back Broadway initiative.“ I’m excited.

Obtaining a pre-approval not only shows the top dollar you can borrow, but outlines the monthly payments, so you make sure you can stay within the family budget. "Pre-approval" means you have met with a loan officer, your credit files have been reviewed and the loan officer believes you can readily qualify for a given loan amount. Based on this information, the lender will provide a pre approval letter, which shows your borrowing power. It demonstrates your financial strength and shows that you have the ability to go through with a purchase. This information is important to the seller since they do not want to accept an offer that is likely to fail because financing cannot be obtained. ( Call Alex at L. A.

March 19, 2012 Downtown News 19 continued from page 2 Step 6: Sell your home The idea is to get the maximum price and the best terms during the window of time when your home is being marketed. In other words, home selling is part science, part marketing, part negotiation and part art. Unlike math where 2 + 2 always equals 4, in real estate there is no for certain equation. All transactions are different, and because of this, you should do as much as possible to prepare your home for sale and work with your Downtown real estate agent who is in the best position to advise you on your home. Much of a broker's work will be quiet and unseen --yet important. The quiet telephone calls, the work with contacts, the follow-ups with open-house visitors, conversations with ad respondents, the web postings and other outreach efforts are all part of the process required to sell homes. The experienced agents at L. A. LOFTS REALTY base their marketing efforts on previous transactions and ongoing re...
