I have written several posts about Lake@Walnut and still strongly believe that it’s one of the best priced, best built new construction condo complex in downtown Los Angeles.  The selection of units is quickly dwindling since condo buyers are realizing what a great deal this condo development is.  When I was there yesterday, October 1st, Lake@Walnut had only 4 2-bedroom, 1-level condos available.  They still have a nice choice of bi-level 2 bedrooms with fantastic views and some fairly large 1 bedrooms available.

Lake@Walnut built by Pacific Standard Homes bills itself as the Hip Urban Oasis since it’s truly in the heart of Pasadena.  This development is right next to the Playhouse District,  about a 1/2 mile away from the South Lake Avenue District.  They are next to the Gold Line Metro Station, Ralph’s is right across the street, Pasadena’s Central Park and Old Town are a bit to the West and Paseo Colorado is pretty walkable.

Lake@Walnut Amenities:

  • Club Room
  • Gym
  • Gated and Assigned Parking
  • Ground Level Retail Stores
  • Beautiful Courtyard with a BBQ Grill, Fountains and an Outdoor Fireplace
  • Security Building
  • On-Site Builder Management for 1 Year to take care of any Warranty Items

Lake@Walnut Interior Features:

  • Energy efficient, dual glazed windows
  • hand-set ceramit tile flooring at entry, kitchen, baths and laundry
  • Plush carpeting throughout living and bedroom areas (if you are on the first two levels – hardwood selection is available as another flooring option)
  • Laundry area in all units (high appliances are standardly included in price)
  • Recessed and soffitted lighting
  • Central A/C and heating systems
  • Kitchens include granite countertops with decorative tile backsplashes.
  • KitchenAid® Architect Series II Appliance Package in Stainless Steel including gas cooktop with four sealed burners, electric self-cleaning oven, builtin microwave, energy efficient, multi-cycle dishwasher.
  • Kitchen cabinetry,  all wood Shaker-style,  come in three different colors – java, nutmeg and natural.
  • Each condominium comes with in home alarm system and multimedia outlets in livign areas, bedrooms and office/tech areas.

Lake@Walnut Pricing:

With 12 floor plans or residences to choose from, there’s a nice variety of homes available starting at $399,000 and going up to over $1 million

$100 Million in Tax Credits is Available to Californians

$100 Million in Tax Credits is Available to Californians

My friend, Mike at Cafe Pasadena, just sent me information about the new incentive plan that the State of California is offering to encourage home buyers purchasing new home construction.

This tax credit is obviously not being promoted by the state of California since I’m hearing about it for the first time. But, here at the Pasadena Real Estate blog with the help of our friends, we are able to bring you the scoop!

$100 million has been allocated and is available on a first come, first served basis. So if you are thinking of buying one of the new Pasadena condo developments like Granite Park or Lake at Walnut , make sure to take the opportunity to apply for this credit.

Here are the California tax credit rules:

  • It is only available for NEW HOME PURCHASES.
  • This tax credit is only available for qualified buyers who purchase a qualified residence between March 1, 2009 and March 1, 2010 and only until the tax credit allocated amount lasts.
  • The property purchase must never have been occupied before, i.e. new construction!
  • The buyer must reside in the new home for a minimum of two years immediately following the purchase date.
  • Be eligible for the property tax homeowner’s exemption under California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 218.
  • California Tax credit amounts

    California allocated $100,000,000 for this tax credit. Buyers must apply for credit allocation from us. Applications will be reviewed and credit allocations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Once $100,000,000 has been allocated, the tax credit will no longer be available.

    Total credit allocated to date by California: $0

    Remaining credit available: $100,000,000

    To check how much Tax Credit Allocation is available, visit the Franchise Tax Board New Tax Credit for New Construction Home Buyers Page.

    California allows qualified new home buyers a total tax credit amount equal to either five percent of the purchase price or $10,000, whichever is less. Taxpayers must apply the total tax credit in equal amounts over three successive taxable years (maximum of $3,333 per year) beginning with the taxable year (2009 or 2010) in which the new home is purchased.

    How to apply

    Within one week (seven calendar days) after the close of escrow:

  • The seller must complete Part I of Form 3528-A, Application for New Home Credit, certifying that the home has never been occupied, and provide a copy to the buyer or escrow person.
  • The buyer will complete Parts II & III of Form 3528-A.
  • The escrow officer on behalf of the seller and buyer will fax the completed Form 3528-A to FTB at 916.845.9754, and provide a copy to the buyer.
  • Fax is the only delivery method that will be accepted and considered for credit allocation by FTB (Franchise Tax Board), as the date and time stamp on the fax will determine the order in which credits are allocated.

  • Fax only one completed application per residence with all qualified buyers listed. Do not include information on nonqualified buyers. An incomplete application may delay or prevent credit allocation.
  • Do not fax the application to FTB before escrow closes.
  • Do not fax the application to FTB more than once. We will process the applications in the order received as quickly as possible.
  • Escrow companies should only send one application per fax transmission.
  • The buyer keeps a copy of the completed Form 3528-A for their records.

    Don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of this tax credit for new construction homes!

    UPDATE: The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) recently announced that the $100 million allocated by the state in new home tax credits will soon be gone. The FTB has received more than 9,800 applications, claiming nearly $95 million as of June 17, and plans to accept 12,000 applications to allow for duplicates, revisions, or invalid applications.

    This tax credit is available for qualified buyers who, on or after March 1, 2009, and before March 1, 2010, purchase a qualified principal residence that has never been occupied. The buyer must reside in the new home for a minimum of two years immediately following the purchase date. To apply, an application for new home credit must be completed by the buyer and seller within one week after the close of escrow and faxed by the escrow person to the FTB at (916) 845-9754.

    The FTB will continue to report the certificates issued on a weekly basis until the full $100 million has been allocated. FTB expects to complete processing all certificates in August. Each applicant will receive a notification indicating the amount of credit allocated or denied.
