What the Experts are Saying:

“Take special care to restore and not replace any street facing windows.  If the curb appeal is right, you will have more homebuyers eager to view your property and your neighbors will be happy, too.” -Alina Sanchez, restoration specialist

“If owners spend the money to replace original materials with like materials they will always get their money out of their investment.” -Judy Oroshnik, Prudential California Real Estate

“Something that  you may at first consider an ‘improvement’ (changing fixtures, doors, adding stucco) may very well decrease the value of your home and it’s desirability to the buying public.” -Joy Jansen, DBL Realtors

“It’s about protecting our city’s history and sharing that history with our youth. Historical preservation demonstrates pride, promotes the culture of some of Los Angeles’ oldest neighborhoods and integrates our city’s past into its future.” -Los Angeles Councilman Ed Reyes
