“This is A Private Residance, Man.” -The Dude

For the first time since 1967, a compound of six bungalows are for sale in Venice. Located within walking distance of trendy Abbot Kinney and the beach, the location is bungalow perfection. Close to it all, yet far enough away you don’t snarl at the tourists as much.

Once filmed as home to “The Dude” of The Big Lebowski, these bungalows are a bit larger than you’d normally find in the area.Five are 660 sqaure feet, one bedroom, one bathroom.  Also, the lot of 10,628 is quite large for the area too. This means more privacy, space between bungalows and parking as well…which means happy tenants. These tenants must be overjoyed, because they seem to be paying lower rent as well. Before you buy any investment property with existing tenants, make sure you know landlord and tenants rights.  Also, be sure to study Los Angeles rent control laws.  You may own the property; but it is still a private residence man.
