It’s the moment Westside new home buyers have been waiting for: Their favorite new luxury condo community is now open to the public, with the X67 Lofts Grand Opening set for May 6–7. Not only can home shoppers now tour the three beautifully furnished models, but also experience the community’s resort-style amenities, including: a dipping pool with lounges; a Residential Services Attendant seven days a week; a community fitness room; and a community room for events and activities. X67 Lofts is now open daily from 10am–5pm and Wednesdays 1–5pm.
Buyers have been unable to resist the community’s combination of ideal location, modern, loft-style floorplans, and upscale features. X67 Lofts, the newest community from renowned builder etco HOMES, is already more than 50% sold and has become one of the hottest options for new luxury condos on the Westside.
“X67 Lofts has really captivated homebuyers with its ideal location in Marina del Rey,” said Patrice Quishenberry, Vice President of Sales for etco HOMES, builder of X67 Lofts. “Beyond the setting, they love the modern, open floorplans, the high-end features and finishes, and all the advantages of homeownership. Many of our buyers have been renting a luxury apartment in Venice, Santa Monica, or in The Marina and paying some of the highest rents in the country. Being able to continue their luxury lifestyle, with the addition of tax savings and the potential for home equity in their own place, is obviously very attractive. All indications are that X67 Lofts Grand Opening will be extremely successful.”
Ensconced in Marina del Rey and convenient to all of L.A., X67 Lofts is within a short stroll from some of the best Westside restaurants, shops, bars, and cafes. Ample nightlife, numerous waterfront activities, and the galleries, eateries, and festivals on Abbot Kinney Boulevard, one of L.A.’s most popular hotspots, are all walkable from the community. For those who work in Silicon Beach, the location couldn’t be more perfect. Playa Vista, Santa Monica, Venice, and West L.A. are mere minutes from X67 Lofts.
Open floorplans, upscale features
X67 Lofts presents contemporary, open-plan residences with up to two bedrooms plus den and two-and-one-half baths in up to 1,906 square feet of living space. The gourmet kitchens, with oversized center islands featuring an eating bar (per plan); high-end KitchenAid® stainless steel appliances; flat panel, European-style cabinetry with modern finishes; sleek, easy-care Caesarstone® countertops; and designer backsplash materials, are showpieces. They are also open to the living rooms, creating the kind of flow today’s buyers are looking for.
Additional features of these luxury homes in Marina del Rey include private outdoor space, wood- and concrete-style flooring, large bedrooms, and spa baths. Buyers are drawn to these loft-like floorplans and top-trending features, especially when the alternative is buying an older home in need of top-to-bottom renovations.
A better alternative to rent
X67 Lofts has proven to be the smart alternative to luxury apartments on the Westside for those who are looking to trade their pricey rental for the joy of homeownership and the potential of equity growth and tax savings without giving up high-end amenities or a perfect location. Especially with rents that continue to rise.
“Our national rent index has now increased in each of the past three months,” said Apartment List in their monthly report. “Last month, we saw a steep 1.0% jump in the index.” Santa Monica and Venice have been flip-flipping spots among the most expensive rental cities in the country list, with Marina del Rey also right there at the top.
Curbed, via a new report from Trulia, found that it’s 32.7 percent less expensive to buy in L.A. than rent. “It’s still cheaper to buy in Los Angeles in the long run,” they said. “The 32.7 percent savings figure provides enough of a cushion that buying would still be cheaper unless home prices jump 52 percent or mortgage rates increase to 7.4 percent (neither a likely possibility).”
