October baseball is all business and LA Dodgers fans who’ve waited 29 years for the boys in blue to be back in the World Series are shelling out monumental dollars for their chance to see it live. In fact, the cheapest seat in the house is going for $882, making it “the most expensive real estate in LA”.
According to the LA Times “prices are so high, three people were raising money for tickets on GoFundMe. By midday (Tuesday), $2,740 had been raised for a preschool teacher and “HUGE Dodger fan” named Mrs. Brown.
But not everyone is happy. “The Dodgers should hang a sign out front that says, ‘for rich people only,’ ” said Ed Wolfman, a retired Manhattan Beach businessman who was headed to Tuesday’s game as one of the lucky fans who got tickets at face value prices. According to sources, fans paid a reported $37,804 ($10,000 more than the average annual per capita income in Los Angeles) for two front row seats to Game 1 at Dodger Stadium, and $72,008 for four seats in the second row behind the Dodger dugout. Whoa.
Like everything else in real estate, it’s all about location, location, location.
The world of commercial real estate has more ups and downs than a good World Series game and yet none of the beer or Cracker Jacks to go along with it. If your company needs a litigator to handle landlord tenant matters, contract disputes or even some collections, make that call to the bullpen for a real closer like Dean Sperling who will work to resolve YOUR matter with YOUR best interests in mind.
