Why 50 Cent’s Mansion Won’t Sell

In case you didn’t know, rapper 50 Cent filed for Bankruptcy this past July. But the major trouble for 50 is his mansion in 50centFarmington, Connecticut.

The 21-bedroom, 25-bathroom mansion was first listed in 2010 for $18.5 million and has since been reduced several times down to $8.5 million. Originally purchased in 2003 for $4.1 million, 50 Cent claims he put between $6-10 million into the 51,657 square foot property.

What else would $8.5 million get you if you were to purchase the home? An indoor pool, gym, basketball court, a “disco” dancing area with stripper poles (disco inferno, anyone?), just to name a few things. Not to mention, you would need $67k/month simply for up keep!

The main issue 50 made, along with sellers in general, is that his initial price was too high and not on par with market trends. When you don’t offer a competitive price for your property, it can turn off potential buyers and scare them away. Secondly, this article states that celebrity homes tend to sit on the market for quite some time, however the main reason for that is due to the price bracket. Celebrities generally have larger and more expensive homes that are not accessible to the average home buyer.

In our opinion, 50 Cent made a mistake by pouring too much money into his house and pricing it way too high for the market. His best bet is to put the home for lease and try selling again in a year or two.

LA Gets Football Team – What Does That Mean For Inglewood?

Los Angeles finally signed on its first professional football team, the LA Rams!

Exciting right?

But what does that mean for Los Angeles neighborhood, Inglewood as we get our NFL stadium?inglewoodstadium 16

The Rams are not expected to play for 3 more years, but there has already been an increasing interest in developments in the vicinity of the stadium. Trulia warns that Inglewood will not see tremendous growth, however, Ethan Moradifar, our development expert says that in fact, the exact opposite will occur.

“LA Live is proof as to why the market prices will increase,” Ethan explains. “New condos near LA Live are now going for a million dollars, and 10 years ago nobody even thought about paying that price. The condos are not only priced in the million-dollar range, but they’re selling at over asking.”

With a higher end, enormous mixed-use project equipped with office spaces, shopping, and residential opportunities, Inglewood is sure to grow as well continue to develop. Generally, people tend to want to live near their jobs, especially in Los Angeles where commuting is difficult due to traffic.

The football players and their families will also want to live close to the stadium, increasing demand for housing in the area.

While the Trulia study claims that many housing markets near NFL stadiums have actually decreased in value, “it’s almost guaranteed that will not happen in LA,” says Ethan. “You can’t compare the Dallas housing market to Los Angeles.”

Millennials Will Make Up Biggest Buyers Demographic in 2016

Yahoo! released a report through CNBC that 2016 is projected to be the year of the millennials when it comes to home MGBlogbuyers in the market. Realtor.com reports that 1 out of every 3 home buyer will be of the millennial generation.

Who exactly are millennials?

Also known as Generation Y, millennials fall in the range of people born around 1981 to 2000.

As home prices start to cool down a bit in 2016 to become more affordable across the country, the number of sales will increase and we will see many first-time home buyers. People between the ages of 24-35 bought more homes in 2015 than in previous years.

The numbers are growing and will continue to grow as we head into the new year.
