The Great Neighborhoods
in Pasadena Real Estate
Heaven is Pasadena's first Landmark District in Real Estate. It has many different architectural styles, but locals mainly
know it due to its abundance of California Bungalows that were built between 1900 to 1930s.
Garfield Heights is Pasadena's second official Landmark District in Real Estate. It's an eclectic area of Craftsman
bungalows to historic two and four unit apartments. Most of these homes were built from the late 19th century to the 1920s.
Note the distinctive architectural features like pillars, retaining walls, foundations - made of river rock.
In late 2007, city of Pasadena has unanimously approved Historic
Highlands as a Landmark Distirct. It's about time since this area has some of the most beautiful craftsman homes in Pasadena.The
Historic Highlands Real Estate Area straddles the borders of Pasadena and Altadena, situated between New York Blvd. on the
North, Washington Blvd. on the South, Lake Ave. on the West, and Hill Ave. on the East.
neighborhood right next to the South Lake Avenue District. It has a strong neighborhood association and has an annual 4th
of July parade and other family oriented activities.
Once the site of a
sheep ranch owned by Henry Huntington, this area of Pasadena real estate began its life before the turn of the 20th century
featuring many grand estates. These estates were built to showcase the lovely native oaks growing in the area. The most famous
estate in the area would be the former Ritz Carlton, now Langham Hotel & Spa.
Old Pasadena Historic District
Old Town is Pasadena's original business district that began at the intersection of Fair Oaks Avenue and Colorado
Boulevard. Newly revitalized, Old Town is one of Southern California's leading destinations. It has pedestrian-friendly streets,
designer boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants.
Once known as "Pill Hill",
because of the large number of physicians and care givers who lived in the neighborhood, Orange Heights has always been at
the heart of Pasadena's civic life. Some of the city's most prominent citizens have lived here, attracted by the beautiful
architecture, terraced yards, tree lined streets, and mountain views.
Park is a tiny piece of real estate just North of the 134 Freeway and West of 210 - where the two freeways meet and is off
of Orange Grove and Prospect Blvd. This area was designated as a housing development in 1906 and had Sylvanus Marston clinker-brick
portals on Orange Grove at Prospect Boulevard. Beautiful and mature camphor trees create a shady arch over the wide boulevard
as you enter from Orange Grove. This neighborhood showcases a collection of Greene & Greene houses, the Gamble House and
Frank Lloyd Wright's La Miniatura.
Arroyo Seco & San Rafael
the shortage of real estate in Pasadena led to the development of the San Rafael area and new residences were built that
reflected the upper middle class and very wealthy families.
Pasadena Unified School District
The schools of PUSD are as diverse as the many great neighborhoods
of Pasadena California.
The "800 Club"
In 2011, eleven PUSD schools
scored 800 or higher on the API, meeting or exceeding the State's goal for academic achievement. Their schools include NAtional
Blue Ribbon Awards and six of the schools were noted as California Distinguished Schools.

Top Pasadena Real Estate Buyer Agents
1) Licensed Pasadena Realtors with Berkshire
Hathaway HomeServices, can help you determine
your buying power -- that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a Pasadena California
Real Estate Agent / Realtor some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can
refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders -- banks and mortgage companies -- offer limited choices.
2) Your Berkshire Hathaway Pasadena Real Estate Agents have
many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised
in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.
3) A Pasadena Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeSerices can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property.
Pasadena Real Estate Agents who are Realtors have access to a variety of informational resources. Pasadena Realtors
can provide local community information on utilities, zoning. schools, etc. There are two things you'll want to know. First,
will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when
I am ready to sell?
4) A Berkshire Hathaway Pasadena Realtor, can help you negotiate. There are myriad negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing,
terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement
should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you
are bound to complete the purchase. Your Pasadena California Realtor can advise you as to which investigations and inspections
are recommended or required.
Pasadena Real Estate Agent with Berkshire
Hathaway HomeServices can provide due diligence during the evaluation
of the property. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty
structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. Berkshire Hathaway Pasadena Realtors can
assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written
reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the title of the property. Title indicates ownership of property
and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations;
for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. A Berkshire
Hathaway Pasadena California Real
Estate Agent's title company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date.
6) A Berkshire Hathaway Pasadena Realtor can help you in understanding different financing options and in identifying qualified
lenders. A Pasadena Real Estate Agent can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together

Real estate transactions involve
one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000.
If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000
legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside
risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a Berkshire Hathaway Pasadena REALTOR®.
