Surprisingly spacious, this 1920s California bungalow duplex has all the history and character you could want in the most prime area of Elysian Heights.

The pandemic has made practically every company rethink how they operate in an effort to keep people safe. When Los Angeles was on full lockdown, the real estate industry pivoted to virtual home tours and open houses. Now that social distancing measures have been relaxed, looking at properties in person is possible again, but it's still not safe to go back to business as usual.

At the beginning of July, the Departments of Public Health and Cal/OSHA revised safety guidelines for real estate professionals conducting showings during COVID-19.

Yesterday, Governor Newsom reinstated closures on most businesses in California, and on July 25th, the $600 weekly unemployment aid is set to expire. As coronavirus cases continue to surge in LA County, a renters relief program is desperately needed for so many out of work Los Angelinos who are on the brink of eviction. 

This month, the City of Los Angeles announced they would be allocating 103 million dollars for renters in need. Unfortunately, renters have to act fast, as the application window to receive a piece of that money is a mere five days, from Monday the 13th until 11:59 PM this Friday.

Prior to the pandemic, many small businesses in Los Angeles were struggling under the weight of soaring rent prices in the city. Now, entrepreneurs are being crushed by lockdowns with little hope that the federal government will swoop in to offer some relief, forcing them to figure things out for themselves.

If you're looking to move to what feels like a quaint little neighborhood in the middle of Los Angeles, Larchmont Village is the place to go. It's the perfect part of town for a young family who wants to be close to the action but still have a little peace and quiet. When we're not in the middle of a pandemic, it's the ideal place to take a stroll on Sunday morning with your kids in tow. Though brunch followed by a little leisurely window shopping isn't as simple to do as it once was, Larchmont Village is still an idyllic part of the city to live.

When restrictions do lift again, you'll be glad that you moved here and that all the things to see and experience are just outside waiting for you. In the meantime, they still have plenty to experience!
