Bruce Willis is hoping for a big payout. The veteran action-flick actor has listed another one of his real estate holdings, this time the Beverly Hills home he picked up in 2004. The nearly 1-acre property is listed for a whopping $22 million; Willis paid $9 million for it nine years ago — that’s a 144 percent price increase.

Why the jump in price? Southern California real estate is a hot buy. Beverly Hills home values are increasing, with Zillow data showing values up 18.3 percent year-over-year. And as far as location goes, Willis’ home, located at 1005 Benedict Canyon Dr, Beverly Hills, is in the coveted 90210 ZIP code, just steps from the Beverly Hills Hotel.

According to Real Estalker’s report, it looks like Willis, along with wife Emma Heming, also have put in a lot of work into the 10,379-square-foot home.

Boasting 11 bedrooms and 11 baths, Willis’ home has large living spaces that open up to a courtyard with a fountain. The updated kitchen has a large center island and restaurant-quality appliances. Outside, the home’s grounds include a tennis court and pool.

Willis has a large collection of real estate and recently added to it, buying a Manhattan apartment from U2 bassist Adam Clayton. He also holds quite a few properties in Idaho but has been trying to dump them in recent years. Currently he has a Hailey, ID lodge listed for $12 million, as well as the bar he once co-owned with ex-wife Demi Moore.

The house is listed by Rayni Romito of Hilton & Hyland.

Pamela Anderson Selling Malibu Home?

by Arnie Levine on March 10, 2013

in Famous Homes,Latest News

Pamela Anderson home, Malibu, Calif.

Pamela Anderson, the iconic sex symbol who etched herself into the American psyche by donning the famous red “Baywatch” swimsuit, is slightly underwater when it comes to her finances. For months and months, the blonde bombshell has been plagued with negative news stories about unpaid taxes and out-of-control spending on her home remodel. And despite being a household name, Anderson is now doing what any other American in her situation must do: downsize!

 

 

Anderson often rented out her longtime Malibu Colony home, but now the California property that was once her sanctuary is for sale and she’s officially put it on the market for $7.75 million. Property records show that she purchased the Malibu home on Dec. 29, 2000, for $1.8 million. There’s no telling how much Pam poured into the ocean-view home’s construction and multiple remodels over the years, but with the listing price almost $6 million more than what she paid for it, here’s hoping that she’ll make a profit.

Pam’s amazing home is within walking distance from all things Malibu. Finely crafted, the teak-sided home is perfect for enjoying quiet beach days, while still being close to the action. According to listing information, you “enter through the front Barb Wire stone gate, cross the small courtyard of olive trees and lavender, push open the ultra-wide swinging glass door, and find yourself in an open living room and kitchen design with a top-of-the-line home theater and black baby grand piano.” Philip Vertoch was the home’s architect, and Josh Chryssanthou and Pamela Anderson herself are responsible for the design.

Factoring in commuting costs

by Arnie Levine on December 9, 2012

in Latest News

A recent study by the Center for Housing Policy and the Center for Neighborhood Technology suggests that borrowers of moderate means would be smart to calculate the costs of commuting before buying. 

Making sense of the story

  • The study, which looked at transportation and housing costs in the 25 largest metropolitan areas, found that transportation costs rose faster than incomes in every area over the last decade.
  • That has added to the financial burden shouldered by moderate-income homeowners, defined as households earning 50 to 100 percent of a metropolitan area’s median income.  Transportation consumes 30 percent of their income, on average.  Add housing costs to that and the combined cost burden rises to 72 percent.
  • The study also found that some metropolitan areas generally considered more affordable become less so after transportation is figured in.

Mortgage underwriters sometimes look at a home’s location relative to where the buyer works, but in most cases a long distance between the two is an issue only if it suggests that the buyer isn’t actually going to live in the house.

The national mortgage delinquency rate declined from the second quarter to the third quarter, but still remains above normal levels, credit bureau TransUnion said this week.

The delinquency rate, which includes the rate of borrowers who are 60 or more days past due, fell to 5.41% in the third quarter, down from 5.49% in the second quarter.

Year-over-year, the U.S. mortgage delinquency rate is down 8% from 5.88% in Q3 2011.

TransUnion calls the constant drop in late payments a positive sign for the market, but noted normal economic conditions generally bring a delinquency rate in the one-to-two percent range.

“Continued declines in mortgage delinquency rates are a welcome sign and reflect that relatively more homeowners are able and willing to make their mortgage payments each month,” said Tim Martin, group vice president of U.S. housing in TransUnion’s financial services business unit. “However, we still have a long way to go to reach more normal conditions of a delinquency rate in the 1%-to-2% range for the U.S. average.” 

Twenty-two states saw improvements in their mortgage delinquency rates, but only 49% of the nation’s metros experienced improvements in late payments on mortgages in the third-quarter.

This is down from the second quarter when 76% of the nation’s metros noted improvements in overall mortgage delinquencies.

Arizona and California — two states slammed by foreclosures and the housing meltdown — are now doing much better with Arizona’s third-quarter delinquency rate down 25% from 7.46% in 3Q of 2011 to 5.62% in the latest TransUnion report.

California’s delinquency rate, meanwhile, is down 24% from 7.29% last year to 5.56% in the most recent report.
