Casting Call: LA Mansion's Listing Video Takes Cues From 'La La Land'

But there's a lot to show off. The 10,100-square-foot estate has seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It sits on a 1.5-acre lot with a guesthouse, staff apartment, pool casita, and views of the San Fernando Valley. It takes a while to waltz your way through a property like that.

"The response has been fantastic," according to LeDon. He says they've received qualified requests for eight showings in just four days. For a property in this price range, that's an accomplishment.

The success of the video has helped him in other ways, he adds. "This is as much about satisfying our clients as it is about selling houses."

The owners are quite happy with the results, LeDon notes. "The notion that they get to memorialize their beautiful house for years after they sell is very pleasing to them," he says. In addition, he and his co-listing agent, Mark Rutstein , have been approached by other sellers for listing presentations.

LeDon says this video will be a hard act to follow. Here's hoping for "Another Day of Sun"!

Tiny house movement lands in Lawrence

A city of 80,000 squeezed into 7 square miles, Lawrence has a varied stock of largely older, densely packed homes. The city has built few new homes in recent years, despite a sustained influx of residents.

Though home prices here are lower than elsewhere in the region, so are incomes. The median household income is about $35,000 a year, compared with almost $68,000 statewide. A city study found that nearly 40 percent of Lawrence residents spent more than half their income on housing.

Acosta estimates monthly mortgage payments for his tiny house could be as low as $600, about half the rent of an average apartment in Lawrence.

Numbers like this have Lawrence officials interested. They are working with him by identifying tax-delinquent properties that can be seized and used to host Acosta’s first batch of tiny homes.

“I would be interested to see how it will play out in an urban environment like ours,” Lawrence Mayor Daniel Rivera said. “This is not going to solve our housing needs, but shame on us if we don’t test something that could work.”
