Beverly Hills, California (Vocus) June 22, 2010
The real estate market appears to be making a comeback as home sales and pending sales rebound from staggering losses, but one real estate guru says that luxury real estate in Beverly Hills and the surrounding Westside communities like West Hollywood, Bel Air, Century City, Santa Monica and Malibu are hotter than ever. Ikem Chukumerije is a top producing celebrity real estate broker specializing in residential luxury sales, leasing, and financing in Beverly Hills. His website MillionDollarLiving.com is a resource for Southern California real estate buyers, sellers & investors who are seeking luxury real estate, advice, tips and even video of the hottest real estate on the market. His clientele includes corporate executives, professional athletes, entertainers and first time homebuyers in places like Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, Malibu, Bel Air and Santa Monica.
"The economy has definitely impacted my business, but in a great way," stated Ikem Chukumerije on his pilot video to his online real estate series which launched last year. MillionDollarLiving.com boasts valuable real estate advice, real estate listing information, including video of current listings and video of his current Million Dollar Living episodes. One of his past listing in Beverly Hills was available for $1,395,000 and sold within 27 days for 1,495,000 with multiple offers. With his extensive luxury-marketing plan and the overall increased buyer activity in the Los Angeles Westside communities, Ikem Chukumerije was able to successfully close escrow and is currently working with several prospective buyers who attended one of his open houses.
As recently as June 10th Ikem published a video on his website which highlights one of his latest listings at Westside Premier Estates.
"Enabling potential buyers and sellers to have video access to luxury homes available from my website allows them to see more than just static photos and descriptions. They can get a real sense of what a home has to offer. When you are marketing luxury homes, you have to do more than listing the property in MLS and placing a sign in the front yard," stated Ikem Chukumerije. A comprehensive marketing plan must be implemented to maximize your selling strategy.
The average price per square foot for Santa Monica CA is $614, an increase of 1.2% compared to the same period last year. The average price per square foot for Malibu CA is $815, an increase of 16.6% compared to the same period last year. The average price per square foot for Los Angeles CA is $266, an increase of 7.7% compared to the same period last year. Interest rates for homes loans continue to be remarkable based on a recent Freddie Mac survey. All these factors contribute a thriving real estate market in the Los Angeles Westside communities.
