Frat House From the Film ‘Neighbors’ Lands on Market in L.A. for $1.5M


Think of a typical frat house. Your mind conjures up images of peeling paint, Greek letters above the front door, loud music, parties, and people coming and going at all hours.

Now take a look at this gorgeous Los Angeles Craftsman home—no trace of a toga party or red Solo Cup in sight. However, it served as a cinematic fraternity house rife with debauchery in the 2014 comedy “Neighbors” and its 2016 sequel, “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.”


The popular films starred Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, who, as new parents with a baby, are shocked to learn that a fraternity has just moved in next door. Hilarity ensues, but the real home is no laughing matter.

Built in 1907 and tucked into the West Adams neighborhood, this Craftsman is large enough to host a party,

The CARES Act is Positioning Healthcare Real Estate for a Bright Future

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, known as The CARES Act, was passed with great fanfare and a lot of promise. In a lot of ways, it hasn’t lived up to that hype as small businesses struggled to get the help that they needed.

But Kyle O’Connor, President and Founder of MLL Capital, which owns medical and life sciences facilities, thinks one sector was well-positioned to benefit from The CARES Act.

“One of the things that has been a big help for the medical industry has been The CARES Act, whether it be the payroll protection program [PPP] or the other funding that went to the health systems,” O’Connor says. “That has, I believe, helped quite a bit.”

O’Connor thinks the medical sector has received many benefits from the act that haven’t been there for other sectors.

“If you look throughout the economy, not every type of business

Will Virtual Inspections Become a Standard?

Virtual inspections have helped to move transactions during the pandemic. These inspections have been essential to maintaining social distancing and health and safety requirements during the pandemic without totally stalling the investment market, but the benefits have extended beyond the pandemic. In fact, lenders are realizing surprising benefits of virtual inspections, including cost savings, depending on the location and property.

“In addition to helping minimize in-person contact during a pandemic, virtual inspections can help save companies the cost and time associated with flying an inspector across the country or state for a traditional in-person inspection,” Matthew Stoehr, chief technology officer at Sabal Capital, tells GlobeSt.com. “However, it is important to note that virtual inspections can cost several hundred dollars to conduct, so in some cases they are more costly to utilize. Sabal has inspectors located across the country, so flying an inspector across the state may actually be
