Keep Glendale Affordable

DON’T PRICE OUT GLENDALE FAMILIES Glendale is currently facing a housing crisis, with properties costing too much and taxes being too high. Now, the Glendale City Council is considering a potential transfer tax on real estate transactions, effectively creating a new sales tax on homes that Glendale families simply cannot afford. The domino effect of this new “main street” tax will devastate our city’s economy, impacting homeowners, renters, local businesses, and jobs. Please follow and like us:

No Moratorium for the City of Glendale

No Moratorium

Tuesday the 28th of November, the Glendale City Council will consider a proposed moratorium on evictions due to substantial renovations. This is a cause of great concern and not just because of bad timing with the substantial lack of housing inventory for both rental and for-sale units, but because it may impose the moratorium on duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, and single-family homes – if your client owns more than one and is renting them out. We need your help! Send An Email: Click here or the red button below to send an email to our City Councilmembers opposing the moratorium!  If the button does not work for you, we have included the recipients’ emails and the draft letter below.   Show Up Tomorrow  Attend the City Council meeting, Tuesday, November 28 starting at 6:00 p.m.  Step up to the microphone and ask the Council not to proceed with this onerous proposal. Read the proposal for yourself on Council...Continue reading

Affordable Housing In Glendale

340-Unit Affordable Housing Development – Glendale’s Largest

Glendale’s Largest Affordable Housing Slated for a large parcel just south of the SR-134 freeway. An agreement struck between Glendale officials and two non-profit developers is expected to result in the construction of the largest affordable housing complex in the city’s history. A study found that there are more than 4,322 residential conversions scheduled to start work in the City of Los Angeles during 2022, highlighted by the upcoming adaptive reuse of the historic Hollywood Western Building into 79 income-restricted apartments.  That is a sharp uptick from 2020, when Los Angeles saw 1,073 new homes created through conversions – good for fifth in the nation at the time.
