When values were soaring, many California landlords have taken advantage of the increases in the values of their apartment buildings by turning the units into condominiums and selling them.  To understand why, let's do the math.  A 10 unit apartment building may be worth one million dollars (as an apartment building).  After the same building is converted to 10 individual condos, each unit may sell for $200,000.00 or more.  10 units times 200,000 each is two million dollars.  Therefore the building just doubled in value by converting it!   Even with permits, renovations and costs of ...
Willamette purchased the old library in 2003 and later selected the College of Law as the program at the school to gain use of the building. The university began renovations in 2007 to restore part of the original layout and modernize the facility to accommodate the needs of modern education. After the brick-faced, Beaux Arts style structure was remodeled, community oriented programs from the law school relocated to the renamed Oregon Civic Justice Center. This center houses programs such as a legal clinic and the school's law review journal.

Consider these tips on how to rent to Bowser stress-free. As landlords vie for tenants in this depressed market, many are wondering whether it might be time to allow dogs and cats. Judging by the number of calls they get from pet owners, surely there'd be plenty of takers.

The bones of what was supposed to be Atmosphere, nearly 80 ‘luxury live/work units for a life well-designed,’ sit open to public view. Atmosphere is one of two downtown San Diego condo projects that started then stalled. The developer of Triangle, at 14th Street and Imperial Avenue, demolished an old warehouse and then stopped. It’s a parking lot now.” “San Diego real estate economist Gary London said the downtown skyline won’t see many new residential towers for at least ... market research, surveys and trends


Apartment rental, occupancy rates slip in S.D. County ...

In a city with the third-highest median income in the country, about 30,000 San Franciscans - 4 percent of the city's population - live in abysmal conditions in more than 500 single-room-occupancy hotels. The hotels that fare worst are privately owned, which most are. There, residents pay $600 to $1,000 a month for an 8-by-10-foot room in buildings where the smell of human waste infuses the hallways from overflowing toilets; floors gather puddles from leaky pipes and ceilings; carpets go unchanged for decades; and rooms are infested with bedbugs, cockroaches and mice. Maybe Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger thinks that ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Google Answers: Co-tenant or subtenant?
Can my roommate (legally) give me a 30 day notice to move? I realize this question is one of if I'm regarded as a co-tenant or a subtenant under the law and that's what I'm trying to find out. I've done multiple searches online and it seems that even though it's a gray area I would be regarded as a co-tenant for these reasons. 1.

I've asked the landlord directly for repairs to the unit and she has complied. ...
